A dreadful day

Sept 28th

Sorry, haven't felt like writing. Yesterday was spectacular. Pierz, John and I spent the day hiking around the Mendenhall Glacier. To me, it was one of the most glorious days of the trip. Glaciers give me the strangest feeling. They look like big snow drifts or harmless masses of ice. Yet, as I near them, my mind tells me to be afraid. Don't get too close. The ice could crack and you could fall and die just like that. Oh what a feeling.

Today, I called home to ask for money. I've never felt like that before. My mom is working so hard and I'm a bum - I need a job!

Most of my thoughts are about what am I going to do with my life.

Yeah, a dreadful day. I ran out of money. I didn't plan that well. What plan I had I didn't follow. I was still a long, long way from Utah and I'm asking for money. Worse yet, I had to ask my hard working mom to help.

Thankfully, I had a supporting family to lean on. I can't imagine being where I was on that day without having a loving family there to back me up when I do something stupid....Or should I say "When I do something stupid again!"
