Learning from the Wise

General Conference is such a wonderful thing, I wish the whole world would watch it. It can only be a benefit, that's what I truly think. Like it says in Mosiah 2, the people prepared themselves to hear the words of a man who loved them, wanted to guide them, and truly could. And we get to have that experience twice a year! God is great.

I am going to rewatch a conference talk a day, until I run out. Yay for conference!

Life's pretty nice

Well, it's taken some time and waltzes, but things are okay with almost everything I can think of. School started today, my health is fine (school doctors are not my friends), I'm looking for a job but I might have one sometime in the near future, and church is going well also.

It's TOO good. Something is wrong here. :O I should start poking at things to see if it's a false wall or facade or something. Haha, or I can wait and enjoy things while it lasts. Yay for me.

Shout out to the writer Alan Campbell (one of my favorite authors currently) for signing the first editions of his novella, one of which found its way into my hands. I am stoked that I have a signed first edition of something for once. More props for also replying to my thank you email concerning the signed book. I feel like I can't get any more excited about things, unless he were to suddenly show up in Oregon and offer to sign my other two books as well. Haha, I can wish.

Time to start my studying for the day, cheers to all.

I'm a diseased piece of meat.

Someone didn't cook me long enough.

Went to the doctor's today to talk about some results (had blood work done) and was just kinda expecting nothing in particular since nothing in particular was all it was about, and came away feeling overwhelmed, freaked out, surprised, and yet not so much.

I don't feel like going into details about the possible diagnosis, but I'll be undergoing some various testing in the future and hope for the best.

The main thing for me to focus on right now is school, church, and losing weight since I'm in a very unhealthy state at the moment. This is an unpleasant extra thing, but it'll probably work out. It's not usually fatal at least.

If My Life was a Movie


So, here's how it works:
1. Open your library (iTunes, Winamp, Media Player, iPod, etc)
2. Put it on shuffle
3. Press play
4. For every question, type the song that's playing
5. When you go to a new question, press the next button
6. Don't lie and try to pretend your cool...
7. When you're finished tag some other people to do it!

First of the Year

Well hey howdy hey, empty blogspace. As of this moment, I know that Tasha is probably going to be the only person to read you, but don't worry-- that might change! Maybe four people will be regular readers! Only time will tell, they say.

As of this moment I'm feeling great. School has started its spring term and although I have my first midterm on Monday, I might do alright and I'm pleased about life in general. No guys, but I don't need 'em at the moment so that's cool as rain.

Right now I'm listening to Bobby Darin's Beyond the Sea, thinking about friends and family, and wondering if I should finish the shells and spaghetti sauce I made for myself for dinner. Seran wrap might be in order, since my cooking is obviously lacking in the awesomesauce department.

The orange juice was surely delectable, however.

And with that, folks, I will leave this blog for now. I have to be away doing dishes, which are necessary today, sadly enough. Tata for now!
