In other news, winter sometimes brings up thoughts/regrets of the year of college that I attended. (Yeah, yeah... I'm a college dropout. *hangs head in shame*) I attended NMU, and although I'm pretty used to crappy Michigan winters by now, nothing could have prepared me for a Marquette winter. Feet of snow, blistering winds, a skin freezing advisory... (It's a real thing, I swear.) One huge non-regret, though, that I could have NEVER prepared for was when I participated in the annual Arctic Plunge. Freezing does not even begin to describe what I felt that day. Actually, I didn't really feel much. Thirty seconds, tops, in the water and I was numb, numb, numb. When I exited the lake it felt like my shorts had ridden up to underwear territory, but as I tried to yank them down my hand just kept sliding down my thigh. Even though it was beyond cold, I'd do it again in a heartbeat. Well, except for the whole falling down and gouging a chunk of my ankle out part. I still have the scar. Stupid frozen sand.
A few years ago I was searching YouTube to try and give my friend a better idea of my experience, and wouldn't you know, I found a video of the exact time that I participated. Keep an eye out for me on the right side of the screen when we all take off. I'm in the red shorts and grey t-shirt. Also, keep an eye out for how I ever so nicely drug my roommate down with me during my "incident". Enjoy!

Day 10 - A song that makes you fall asleep:
From experience, I know that any song from The Knack (with the exception of My Sharona) makes me fall asleep. We used to get a lot of free vouchers for lawn seats at DTE Energy Music Theater, and The Knack featuring some other horrendous bands, was one that I wish we never would have wasted our time on. I've attended quite a few concerts in my 25 years on this Earth, but I've NEVER been to such a snooze fest! Awful. Just awful. I could leave you with some crap, but I'll be nice and share the only song of theirs that I can tolerate.
