April is Cold

and there are a lot of allergies. Kind of a bummer. I survived that week, barely, but now I'm craving the end of the semester something fierce. I'm not the only one either, it's spring fever.

Fun things that have happened recently:

Two weeks ago I went to Dayton with some friends from my ward to go to the National Air Force Museum. It was incredible, they had so much, I felt like my brain was going to explode from the information overload.
My favorite part, this has been on the moon. It made me think of Bryan Regan

A week ago, I went to Haifa Falafel twice. It was awesome. You haven't lived until you've stuffed your face with delicious chicken shwarma.

Last week, I got elected as an officer in the Special Libraries Association (it's for special people!). Our motto as officers is "we're more than happy hours" (they really like the happy hours here in Michigan). Mostly I'm excited because I have some pretty awesome fellow officers.

This weekend I got to watch General Conference I really enjoyed all the talks, but Elder Bednar's really resonated with me. I really enjoyed the metaphor of light he used and the gentle reminders (what can you remove from your daily practice so that you can better hear and act upon the spirit of revelation?)


This week, I'm going to see a special video broadcast of Frankenstein, it's a play on London's West End directed by Danny Boyle (director of 127 Hours and Slumdog Millionaire) and stars Benedict Cumberbatch (who has the most British name ever and starred in the recent Sherlock mini-series, which was awesome, by the way) and Johnny Lee Miller (perhaps best known for being the first husband of Angelina Jolie, although I hear he's a good actor too). I'm excited.

Ummm...life is good, even if sometimes you have to wade through the crap.
