Weber State Ballers!

Ever since I was a “young warthog” (Lion King quote) I have always enjoyed attending WSU Basketball games!  Our family would often buy season tickets and cheer way loud!  Well, this season is the first season of attending games that I have been an actual student.  Last Saturday there was a huge high school recruitment activity that invited all high school students to come and watch the game, eat dinner, and enjoy a movie.  It was a huge success and I’d like to thank all those who came. 

Weber State defeated their opponents by twenty points!  Here are some pictures of that night…..

Go Weber! If anyone has any questions about WSU I’d be happy to help out  🙂

Q: Are You Stressed? A:Stress Management!

Would it come as a surprise to find out that Weber State University has a class called Stress Management?  Would it be a surprise to find out that I am enrolled in that class? Well, I am!

Let me elaborate about why I enjoy this class so much.  I am taking 15 credit hours this semester, and I must admit Stress Management has been the one class that I have consciously applied what I have learned EVERYDAY.  We learn about the stress response and how, in reality, the world isn’t a stressful place.

The one thing I have come to realize as a result of this class is this: We, as individuals, have the power to choose our response to any given stimulus (stressful problem).  We are in control!  We determine how stressed and/or relaxed we are.  To my surprise, I have found this declaration to be TRUE!  My professor, Dr. Olpin is so enthusiastic about this subject material and even has us listen to relaxation exercises throughout the semester to help aid the students to become stress free.

WSU has a stress management lab that is available for all students and it’s paid for by your student fee’s. Might as well take advantage, right?  Here are some pictures of me outside of the stress lab!

Don’t you just feel so relaxed 🙂 ? haha.  The lab is open every week day during normal business hours.  This class has been a huge help to me and I have only been in the class for one month!  Come check out what Weber State has to offer and do yourself a favor–RELAX!  The lab has a full body massage chair!  In other words, welcome to heaven!  ha.

“The successful manager of stress is willing to do that which the unsuccessful manager of stress is not willing to do.”  — Dr. Olpin

Taking a 2 Year Break From College!

What a wonder week!  Today is Friday, and that means it is time to kick back and play some basketball, watch Jazz games, be with friends, and even work at Bella’s Fresh Mexican Grill.

For those of you who might not know, I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and this past week I opened my mission call!  What a crazy awesome feeling and experience that was.  I will be spending the best two years of my life serving in the WASHINGTON DC SOUTH MISSION!  I am definitely pumped up for that adventure.  I will be living mostly in upper Virginia.  Here are some pictures of me that night 🙂

Well I was definitely a happy happy boy that night!  I leave for the MTC (Missionary Training Center) on June first.  I hear that there is tons of humidity in Virginia! Did you know that George Washington and Thomas Jefferson lived in Virginia? 🙂  There is tons of cool history there.

Weber State University has been very understanding and workable with my decision to take a 2 year break from college.  Weber State is reliable and helpful.  Being a student at WSU is so enjoyable because it encompasses more than just school work.  There are so many activities and sporting events to attend nearly every week.  Our basketball team is on a role! (Call them butter because they are on a roll haha)   Life is really good.  Go Jazz. Go Weber.

A general authority for the LDS church has said: “Without the risk of failure, you will never have the opportunity of success.”

Get into Weber with Parker and Steve!

This is a funny little video that my good bud Stephen Gordon and I made this summer after an Orientation at Weber State University.  We basically walked around campus with a video camera and spilled all the beans about WSU.  It is a great school and I think if you watch this video you will really want to be a Wildcat!

Enjoy??? !!! Look down. Look back up. Now look back at me. Are you bleeding Purple yet ? haha. Go Weber!

All you need to know about Chuck

I am Parker Ross Norris!  I am just starting a blog to allow others to see what I have been doing in my life and keep everyone up to date.  I am currently a student/Ambassador for Weber State University. I just started school this week.  I really enjoy my new professors they really care about their students and want everyone to succeed.  I do however have some difficult class such as English 2010 and Public Speaking… Yikes.

I love to snowboard at Snowbasin. YES, I am a Basin Boy!! haha.  I also love to attend Jazz games and watch them with my buds.  My favorite player is D will and Hayward is a stud for being a rookie.  I grew up in North Ogden and I love the outdoors.

I have worked at the Cold Springs Trout Farm for the past five years and I love my job.  For now I have recently gotten a new job at Bella’s Mexican Grill. The food there is to die for. I highly recommend giving it a try.  Well life is good.  As Darrel Filbin once said “Fleece it out!”.  And I say Peace out for now 🙂
