this weekend ranks very highly in the top 5 things i've done in college.
one of my best friends, courtney king, and i decided to live it up senior year and go with baylor's outdoor adventure program on an all-day kayaking trip. let me tell you, it was the most outrageous and funniest experiences of my life.
i personally learned a couple of lessons i would like to share with you...ahem.
1. when trying to keep from dehydrating, one must use natures gift of rivers to use the bathroom.
2. when the leaders of such a trip proclaim it's "brunch time", don't treat it like a light snack and choose only a granola bar and an apple. eat like you won't eat until 6 hours later.
3. upon seeing a red creature in the water, don't proclaim it is a lobster to the other outdoor professionals. (try crawfish).
4. always bring a waterproof disposable camera. forget pretending like you do things outdoors all the time, the pictures end up being priceless.
but seriously, this trip was amazing. i learned a cool new skill, met some inspiring people, experienced the beauty of God, and made some awesome memories.
"your love has given me great joy and encouragement, because you, brother, have refreshed the hearts of the saints."
