Yeah!

I get to graduate in less than 3 weeks. That's right (imaginary) people, I'm finally finishing my edumacation and moving on with life! And, since I have the most awesome parents in the world, I get to go on vacation to...wait for it....Washington DC! Now, you might be asking yourself, why not somewhere nice and sunny? Well, the answer is my friends that I am a big freaking dork who loves to learn about history, so why not Washington DC! I've been saving up my frequent flier miles since I was 12 (smart parents got me an account when we went to Hawaii) and now I have 55,000, so not only is the flight free, but we're going First Class, I'm pretty sure I'm not fancy enough to do something like that, but you only live once and I'll probably not get the opportunity again. I'm so excited to go, mostly because I've not been on a good vacation since Spring 2007. Come back (imaginary) people and read all my fancy posts and see all my super awesome pictures from my graduation and other assorted fun things going on in my (imaginarily) awesome life!

I'm a ball of craziness sometimes.

Creativity

I'm not a particularly open person about my spirituality, but I though Easter would be the perfect opportunity to share a message from my favorite apostle (I know you really shouldn't have favorites, but you do anyway). So, there's this channel on YouTube called Mormon Messages and they do videos and stuff, I really loved this message and I think it's a particularly powerful one that we forget. Have a Happy Easter and remember the reason for the holiday, because "God so love the world that he sent his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life"!

The Amazazing Internets!

So, I happened upon the following video on the internets. Its basically this awesome Israeli musician who clips together sounds and images from YouTube to make songs. It is awesome!

वेयर'स थे ग्लोबल वार्मिंग?

So, I don't really believe in Global Warming, although I am fully convinced that we need to be better stewards of the earth or it's not going to last. Mostly I don't believe in Global Warming because it is so frikkin cold outside! It's April for crying out loud and it's still snowing!

Well, lucky for me, Utah might get a small break tomorrow and it might reach 60 degrees outside, so guess who has two thumbs and is going to wear capri's tomorrow?
This gal!

When I Grow Up

I've been finding myself thinking about how I'll do things when I grow up, funny I'm not there yet. Things like, buying a house in the country, growing a big garden and settling down. I've never been one for rural living, but that idea is growing ever appealing to me for some reason. Mostly because I've really felt the need to be self sustainable, you know grow my own food and whatnot.
It just sounds so peaceful, on the other hand, it sounds like a ton of work.
I really want to take some gardening lessons, but my Dad won't let me use the garden (in all fairness, we need the garden for parking our fleet of cars, 9 of them for 5 drivers, it's ridiculous). Anyone have ideas where I could rent a plot or get some pointers?

Whoa!


Did you guys hear about the Salmonella outbreak?! No more pistachios for me, I wonder if it affects pistachio ice cream too?
That got me thinking about food and how we get it...do you even know where the food you're eating comes from? I certainly don't, it's kind of scary to think about actually, we just eat this food without any question about its safety. It really makes me want to start eating organic and more locally, but that proves difficult because I'm poor and that stuff is expensive. Maybe when I get a real job, but at least its got me thinking.
4 more days!
