Ghost Towns and Down Days
Just kidding, Idaho really does have positive qualities. It has a beautiful landscape with mountains and lakes, and.... *drumroll* ghost towns!!
John and I went to explore Idaho City today. During the 1800s, 300 million dollars in gold were found there, more than the 49ers found down in California! It was a pretty interesting place.
We walked about a mile (well, two miles because we got lost a couple times) to the cemetary. It was interesting to see the headstones dating back to the 1840s. The highlight of the day was when we watched a cowboy play, complete with dynamite and robberies! We had a nice little chat with the 9th and 10th fastest sharpshooters in the nation, as well as the second fastest female sharpshooter in the world and next weekend they're teaching me to shoot.
it was exciting, to say the least.
Now on to other subjects. I've been a little on the depressed side today, though I'm not quite sure why. All I want to do is eat and sleep. Not a good cycle. I hate being depressed. I hate how mean I am to my family when I don't feel well. I hate spending my entire day sleeping. But I don't know how to snap out of it at all.
Michelle is coming over, and maybe she can cheer me up, because I'm incapable of doing it alone.
Question of the Day:
If you were to do something outside your comfort zone and completely uncharacteristic, do you feel that that would change other peoples views of you or would they be able to tell that you were trying something new?
