Snow can be enjoyable...sometimes

Oh man, winter makes me so LAZY. I've had 2 snow days in January and did absolutely NOTHING during both.

Yesterday, in an effort to get out of my room and stop watching re-runs of 30 Rock, my friends and I went cross country skiing at Weston Ski Track.

It was a lot of fun!
It was much harder than I remember it being though. I think I fell...5 times maybe? But it was a good way to get out, enjoy the snow, and be active!

The Short-Haired Candlepin Bowler

I am the worst bowler in the world. Seriously, the last time I went bowling I bowled a 43. Pictorial evidence below:

So anyway, when my friends asked me to go bowling I wasn't really sure if I wanted to spend $10 to make a fool of myself (sidenote: holy crap it's cheap to bowl here unlike NYC where it costs $80 billion dollars - or maybe more like $20), but I agreed anyway. When we got to the place, all the lanes for 10-pin bowling were taken but they had some "Candlepin bowling" lanes open.

Ummmm, Candlepin? Apparently it's this crazy New England style of bowling where you have really small pins and a really small ball (with no finger holes).
We decided to try it and guess what guys? I'M ACTUALLY KIND OF OK AT IT! Woot! I can't remember my exact score but that doesn't really matter because I WON THE GAME and also I had only like 2 gutter balls. Uh huh, that's what I'm talking about!

In other news, I got my hairs cut!

And, 11 inches and some red hair dye later:

And now to really gross you out....
My hair! yes, I did send it in to Locks of Love. That makes a total of 32 inches that I've donated in my life :) yay!
