the simple joys...

I just recieved this book for Christmas. I couldn't be more pleased.

random thoughts

Moderation in all things, thats what I say. Last post on here I was at an extreme. That is extremely busy. Now, post-finals, post-Christmas, I am at the other extreme. I have been in Arizona for a while, a little over a week, with my family here. Here are some of my thoughts.
-I don't like spongebob. It is mindless. But because I am bored out of my mind, I am watching it with my niece and nephew.
-I love Christmas. There is giving and recieving that surpasses every other time of year.
-I will not have kids for a long time. I haven't the patience. I don't think anybody does until they have to and they have the children to teach it to them. Also, I lack the requisite wife.
-I love popular science. Thats because I love technology. But not as much as I love you.
-Am I the only one that thinks these two should get together?
Application Concept
Don't worry, I already emailed both of them about the other. Thats how bored I am.
-Speaking of, I just thought of somebody else I can email to vanquish boredom. I was in Albuquerque this summer, and met somebody who had a first edition Book of Mormon. Wow. I wonder how many of those are still out there? Not very many, there wasn't that many when it was first published, only 5000. and that was in...1830? I'm not sure, but anyway, I thought I would email some of the folks at F.A.R.M.S. and see what they think. Any thoughts? Should the owner keep it for posterity, or sell it to the Church for posterity? Or give it? Lemme know what you think.

People of my generation are often told that we are chosen, that we are special, that we are more mature, that we have more expected out of us, etc, etc. Well guess what? I think they are right on that last one. I am only taking a couple classes, and there is just too much to do. And that is aside from absolutely essential life activities. I'd like to echo Elton Johns words in a very unromantic way, theres "more to do than can ever be done". Lets count it up, shall we?

Go to church
Read the scriptures
Say your prayers
Magnify your calling
Worship in the temple
Serve in your community
Don't skip class
Study outside of class
Stay in touch with old friends
Make new friends
Home Teach
Go to Family Home Evening
Spend time with your real family
Keep a clean living space
Read good literature
Keep a journal

And in between it all, find time for to laugh, sleep, eat, cry, breath. You should fit heigene in there too. You're a grown up, so get a job. Find time for a creative outlet, you know, paint, sculpt, act, write something, maybe a blog.

Oh, and don't forget...relax.

If you can't tell, my soul feels a little oppressed. I think this is all ridiculous. Absurd. Nonsense. I sometimes want to scream to those that we look to for council "I CAN'T DO IT ALL!!! IT IS ABSOLUTELY IMPOSSIBLE!! LEAVE ME ALONE!!"
But that would be bad I think.

And unfortunately I don't see any cure.

I would put cool links in this and color and order, but guess who doesn't really have time for that?
