the mountains

so apparently there is this "fun" thing that all the kids up here do called spotlighting... and seeing that I'm pretty much a city girl I had no idea what the heck this was. now I'm proud to say that I now do!! so last night we went to FHE which ended up being such a bust. We then decided to go spotlighting. The night consisted of clint, spencer, these two girls that I don't really know, and I going up to the mountains. clint is always going up there to go "hunting" or looking for deer, so we went with him this time. we started driving up the mountain and then we whipped the light out and started searching for the animals glowing eyes. we didn't see anything interesting and we probably almost got killed a few times since clint wasn't watching the road. we did find a lot of skunks... and of course the boys, being their stupid selves, tried to catch them. luckily they weren't sucessful because I wasn't about to drive around in a car with people who reaked of skunk!! anyways, I had to go to the restroom quit a few times, so we pulled over a lot. k... so since we didn't see any deer while we were spotlighting I didn't think we would even end up seeing one. but of course, right when we were about to give up, a deer jumps off the cliff right in front of the truck and we totally hit it!!! it was insane... so all of them went over there to see if it was still alive and they told me to stay behind, which of course I thought was stupid, but right when they went over there the deer hopped up and started running straight at me. it was on amission to kill me or something, but luckily I hopped into the truck, screaming, for protection. you would think that this would have been enough, but no. we ended up going all the way to the top of the mountain to this meadow where we were going to stay till 3 in the morning to watch the eclipse. now let me remind you that this was a school night and I had to wake up at 6 this morning. it was freezing cold up there, I didn't have a sweater, and those girls with us were getting on my last nerve. well, spencer and clint had this brilliant idea that they were going to go touch the "haunted" picnic table across the meadow. this was after they had just told us a bunch of scary stories too. so they went over there, and they asked us to shine the light over there because they thought they could see something. all of a sudden we see they sprinting towards the truck screaming and telling us to turn the truck on. they got in and we spud off. appearantly they saw something that wasn't a person or a bear, but something huge that looked like a person. I was pretty much done after that. so we started going down the mountain when we pulled off to the side of the road, and then they said that we were going to stay there till three to see the eclipse. ya... it was already about 12 and I wasn't about to spend 3 more hours on the stupid mountain when I was already irritated from lack of sleep. so we went home, and the whole way home the boys were testing my knowledge and pretty much just trying to make me feel stupid. they succeeded, mostly because I feel stupid for even going since I had a really early class this morning which coinsidently is my hardest class... statistics. this is really long, but it is probably one of the most interesting things that I've been through while I've been here so I thought I would tell you all about it. I'm sure I'l probably have a few more experiences like this so just bear with my long stories. :)
