Tomorrow is THE CIVIL WAR. Ahhhhhhhhhhh! Yesssssssssssss! This only comes once every 730 days (at home against Oregon)! It is the most exciting time in my life... tomorrow will either be the worst day ever or the best day ever. The best day of my life so far was the 2004 Civil War game. But honestly, racking through my brain I cannot imagine a day I was happier. Maybe when I have a child born.... mayyyyybe.

Anyways the whole week I've been freaking out. Ever since Sunday my stomach has felt a little weird and I'm anxious. It's just this sorta excited/stressed feeling over my body thats pretty annoying. But yeah, I'll get these random bursts of happiness, where I crack a huge smile and shudder in pleasure. Oh man, I cannot wait. It's going to be AWESOME.

Before I left for home Tuesday I played a Civil War game in NCAA Football 2006. It was a really great game, I turned the difficulty was up and it was a battle. So I was up 34-31 with like two minutes to go, it was 3rd and 3 on my own 30 yard line. Basically if I get the first down I should win (they only had 1 timeout left). If I don't get it, they were moving the ball pretty good on me and when the computer needs to score it often does with ease.

So I call this running play up the gut and pray that it will get enough yards. I spring it for a 70 yard touchdown. Ok, wow a video game right? I don't know, but that game was so close and fun to play, and then to bust it open and win it on that, it was exciting. Ever since that I've just been ready.

I sound like a dork, I know. But I didn't wake up at 4am and wait for three hours in the rain and wind and cold for nothing. I'm on the 40 yard line and the Beavers are playing the Ducks. What more could I ask for?

Sigh. A little over 12 hours till kickoff!

R.I.P. Quinn <3

Only picture I can find with both of us, Quinn is middle right (next to pink shirt guy after me).

We weren't the closest of friends, but some of my best friends were pretty close to her. It's really sad to lose someone especially at such a young age. :( Also scary that they veered off the road and into a body of water... same thing my parents did a few weeks back. They were able to espace, but still it brings it very close to home. Life is precious, enjoy every minute of it.

So I drove home Sunday night in a pretty big wind storm. Turns out the winds got up to like 80mph in some places and I was feeling it. Freeway travelers were slowing down, I think I was doing 50mph the entire way (down from the usual 70). Some people were still going crazy, I had freaking semi's passing me, swinging from side to side. It was crazy. Turns out 3 people died on the road that night from wind related stuff.

My other option was to stay home but I'm glad I didn't. I had two midterms that next morning and they would have been brutal if I woke up early to drive home. Anyways, it was pretty intense, my hands glued to the wheel and being extra careful the entire way but me and the 'lil Protege made it home. So phew.
