Did you know that it is very good politics for when a President is under fire, racial issues tend to arise to move attention away from the real problems at stake.  For example, Andrew Jackson had the Nullification Crisis, which was quickly followed by the Trail of Tears.  Does this not seem to bother anyone else?  Like seriously?  Yes, Immigration is an issue.  A state issue.  Yes, the 9/11 mosque issue is an issue. Is this more important than the fact the China is legitimately upset with us as a nation because some extremely intelligent people keep spending more money that they don't have to get us out of debt?  Is this more important than the fact the our entire legal system is completely whacked?  Checks and balances frankly don't exist anymore?  Exhibit A: California's ruling on Gay Marriage.  I don't care if you are for or against gay marriage, let's not get started on that hateful debate but you should be concerned that the way that that was passed is NOT the way that this country was set up.  The voice of the people should not be able to be overturned by one court ruling.  Can you spell UNCONSTITUTIONAL?

Now, go do the right thing

I am so proud of dr. laura.  You may know that I adore this woman.  Basically, I think she might walk on water.  Recently, she has been under a lot of fire and so she has chosen to leave her radio show in December (tragic) so that she can speak more freely without her sponsors and the station influencing what she can or cannot say.  *insert here a discussion of freedom of speech* But Seriously, she just gets it.  Her advice, though harsh at times, is accurate.  It is generally not the easy way out, but is the best.  We need more people in this world like her.  Who knows?  Maybe one day I can aspire to become the next Dr. Laura?

I hate bridezillas.
Had a bride today.
4 hours in ONE dress.
yep. That's right.
She looked at herself for 4 hours straight.
The first dress she tried on she wouldn't get out of.
But when she did get out of the gown
she bought it.
and a pricey veil
and a slip
which meant,
money for me
which made me happy. :)

I can read peoples energies.
The last 4 brides I have worked with have all bought the
VERY FIRST dress that I pulled for them.

p.s. I bought a swimsuit that is super cute!  I think I will add a ruffle to the top to make it look more vintage and for additional coverage.  woot!

Toilet Paper War

Everyone in the apartment can tell that there is only one roll left.
But... the same apartmentees are the ones always buying the toilet paper, the laundry detergent, the hand soap.
So what happens?
Everyone tries to wait and see who is going to break in first and buy the silly toilet paper.
So late last night, I broke down.  But not to end the "competition," I put out one roll out for everyone, and then have my own secret stash.

I hate research papers

Research papers are the biggest waste of time.
They don't prepare us for the real world at all.
In fact, they put us behind for the real world.
I am much more so a fan of a concise 1 page paper.
That way, there is no fluff and every word is important.
That's all.

These are a few of my favorite things...

Today was full of favorites:
Fast Sunday- I love hearing everyone bare their testimonies.  It is always a great spiritual experience, but highly entertaining at times.

Sunday Cat-Naps-  Lately by Sunday,  I am so exhausted from work and school that I will sleep for like 3 hours...

Charles Dickens-  He is an inspirational figure for me.  I love his brilliance, romantic writing style, and beautiful syntax.  The other day I bought one of his less-commonly known works that he wrote for his children.  It is called The Life of Our Lord.  Simply written, it is a summary of the life of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  A new favorite.

LOST- just dang good.

Anne of Green Gables-  the soundtrack brings back so many memories.  It takes me back to my families annual mid-summer night eve party where I learned to waltz.  It reminds me of being at my grandparents cabin late at night staring at the moon over the lake of shining waters. :)  It reminds me of my dad reading to me when I was little.  I love that music.

Skype- I may be like my grandpa Kent in being sortof anti-technology, almost to the point of it being a phobia, but I am grateful for the chance and opportunity to be able to stay in contact with close friends and loved ones.

Rain storms-  These always take me back to a time when my parents were out of town and my cute aunt chrissie stayed with me and kenn and there was a huge rain storm and we danced with towels on our heads.  I remember how the rain smelled and how the light looked through the aspens.  I cherish that experience.

Enya- I love this style of music.  It is so yoga, so artsy, and so calming.
Chocolate covered strawberries with ice cream- best thing ever!
