It's not so much "whatever that means." It's whoever...

It is anticipated that you will serve for a period of 24 months...You will prepare to preach the gospel in the Spanish language... "

Tuesday, May 3, 2011's May now. case you couldn't was snowing last week, see. But May has come and not a moment too soon. I just hope this warmth that May has brought will stay for a while. I'm sure it will, and then I'll be burning hot all the time and wishing for some snow. What an ungrateful life I lead. I really do like the cold and the just...never seems to stay within its boundaries. Snow should fall from late November until February. Then it should stop, and not snow again until the next November. But this is Utah we're talking about, so of course there's snow on and off from October until April. If we're lucky, there's snow on Christmas, and none on the 4th of July. Okay, I've never seen snow on the 4th of July...but my dad has. Anyway, suffice it to say, I'm glad for the warmth, and I hope it decides to stick around. At least until I go to Colombia. Then I'll be set. ;)

I gave my boss my 2 weeks notice yesterday. That was pretty much one of the most exit (that's the abbreviation for "exciting") things that's happened to me in the past few weeks. It was kind of scary, because...well, my boss just scares me.  I'm not entirely sure why. She just does. But I came out fairly unscathed, so I figure it went well. 

Right now I'm listening to the Spirit soundtrack. "Run Free" by Hans Zimmer. It always amazed me how someone who's originally from Europe could compose a song that sounds like America. This is America. That might sound weird, but it's true. Wide open prairies, big blue skies,'s just...America. It's hard to describe, really. Anyway, Hans Zimmer never ceases to amaze me. 

Don't you just love good music? I wish I had more patience/time/resources for composing. Because I love it so much. I heard a song just this morning that made me want to compose. There just aren't enough hours in a day, or days in a week. I have other "more important" things to do, and eat and sleep. Honestly, I would put composing above every one of those things if I could...sigh. One of these days. 

After working 4 months at the call center, I promised myself that I would make a living doing something I actually enjoy. Because there's no way on this green earth I'm going to sit in a chair making phone calls for the rest of my life. It's just not for me. 

Well, happy May, everyone! I'll be in the MTC before it's June, and I'll turn this blog over to one of my parents to post my mission letters. That's the plan for now, anyway. I wish I could type music. That sounds ridiculous. But thoughts come into my head in the form of music, and I want to write them down for you to see...hear...and I can't. 

Wow, I'm ADD. Anyway...Have a nice day?

Love y'all.



  1. Summer before junior year, the 4th of July parade had snow. I remember, because I was in it. With a cold. Metal. Pole.

    It was actually really nice, because I've walked that parade route in the sun with warmth and all... The snow was better, but only 'cause it'd been way too many degrees before then.

    Exceptional things are easier to appreciate.

    Oops, I'm ranting. I meant to... I meant to not, I guess.

    Maybe I meant 'happy May!'... Sure we'll go with that. Happy May!

  2. My birthday is on the Fourth of July.

    Love, Me.
