Super Bowl Party 2013!

 For the first time since 1994 the 49ers made it to the Super Bowl!!! So of course we threw a Super Bowl Party!!! It was a blast even though they ended up losing, the second half was a nail biting, edge of your seat kind of game! I almost cried when they lost, there were some bad calls by the ref's but what are you going to do?  It was a fun game to watch though because they played the Baltimore Ravens and their head coach was  Jim Harbaugh's (head coach of the 49ers) older brother Jack Harbaugh!
Here are some pictures from the party!
The spread

A close up of our "snackadium" it had rice crispies on the outside, tortilla chips in the end zones, the goal posts were made out of slim jims, the "field" was made up of salsa, chili, and ranch, and the yard lines were made out string cheese.  It turned out way better than I expected! (Also the idea was taken from Pinterest)

The balloons I got from a party store called Zurchers, I saw them in Sam's Club and knew I had to have them! So I asked an employee where they got them!

All in all, I'd say the party was a success, Bill, Jordan and Alli, Israel and Madison and Kyle's friend Rylen and his girlfriend all came and it was super fun!

School stuff

So as a result of me getting so sick in November-December I failed one of my online classes I was taking.  Which caused me to be academically dismissed, because I've been on warning, probation, and suspension before ("Yay" for being chronically ill! NOT).  I petitioned it though and as a result of that petition I got readmitted to school, but suspended this semester (winter) and I can only take 9 credits in the spring.  However, getting suspended was actually kind of a blessing, kind of.  Because one of the things the school had me do was go talk to my academic advisor, which I had never talked to before, I've only ever talked to my faculty advisor.  She made it so I had another custom cluster, so that got rid of two classes I needed to take, as well I found out I had taken two too many religion courses, when I thought I had two left, so that was a relief that she got rid of four classes I thought I had to take. So instead of graduating in July like I thought I would, I am now pretty sure I can graduate in December! I have to go talk with her again, just make doubly sure.  But it's only a semester late so I didn't screw up our future as bad as I originally thought.

Medical stuff

In November 2012 I got a check up liver biopsy, it showed that I have slight cirrhosis, which I have had before, and it healed itself before, so I am hoping it will do so again, as long as I keep up with medicine!

Also in November I started having stomach issues again (I'm going to get a little gross here). I started having bloody diarrhea multiple times a day, sometimes I would just poo straight up blood. It was not fun having to constantly run to the bathroom through out the day.  Also losing as much blood as I did on a daily basis, made me really tired so I ended up sleeping A LOT and when I wasn't sleeping I was super lethargic. It took everything I had to go to my internship, even though it was only a couple times a week for a couple hours a day, it was still very hard for me to go.  In December I got a colonoscopy and an upper endoscopy to try to figure out what was going on, which they were actually able to find something! A few somethings actually. They found that I had H. Pylori, slight Gastritis and Ulcerative Proctitis. The H. Pylori is a bacteria and they tested me for it again in February by doing a breath test thing where I had to drink some like sour lemonade tasting stuff, and breath into a bag, it came back negative! So that was some really good news.  I haven't had stomach issues for the most part since December, every now and then my stomach will hurt pretty bad but not very often so I'm not too worried about it.
