Blogging for the memories

It's been over a year since I've last blogged. Time flies by very fast, and my mother told me that time will only go by faster as you get older.

Part of the reason why I want to blog is so that later in life I will remember the various events in my personal history much better. For example, when I think back on my college experience, I have a hard time remembering which events happened during which year. That is very sad to me.

I'm even having a hard time when certain significant events happened since my move to the Bay Area. Alas, I'm thinking about trying to sit down and sort it out so that I can at least try to remember the things that have happened since my move to the Bay Area.

To start off, I went to the American River (Upper/Lower Sunrise Recreational Area) for my friend's birthday this past Saturday. We went tubing down the river, which was very relaxing and very fun. Although there was one very scary part where we hit some rapids and my girlfriend went under. She was down there for a while, but she eventually emerged and was ok. But for a brief moment, it was definitely a very scary experience. The rest of the river was much more relaxing though.

It's actually the most fun I had all summer. Last year, we went to the American River also, and went white water rafting (the location was further up river where the rapids are stronger). I'm liking these once a year trips where we do a outdoor activity with my group of MIT friends.

Ok, I should probably go to sleep now. Until next time!
