Um, I think I have to change.

Looking at a new domain for my "blogging."

Look for life updates, random rambles, and sporatic chat at


Weekend Momento

The only pictures from the Three Cousins' 4th of July Reunion. Morgan has the rest on her camera, and she just happens to be in Romania! Because she's Insania. Ha.

Today I got out of bed.

"There are times on the farm when nothing goes right. Much like life, there are times when it would have been better if I had just stayed in bed. Of course, if that would have happened, something would have gone wrong there too.
But, there are times when things just go right."

These are the words of a man who tweets (what you do with Twitter) from his tractor using his blackberry. He has a 4,000 acre farm in Nebraska, he's a God fearin' man, and he uses twitter. For that CNN used him in an article Twittering from the Tractor.

He also has a blog, an that is where I pulled these phrases from for a description of my day, my week, my current life really.
I haven't quite decided in which category my life fits, especially today.

I guess, even when it seems like bad things are happening and there is nothing to be done about it, it still might be what's right. Because even when it's hard, and dark, and scary, and frustrating, you learn lessons. You hopefully become better, you go through the refiner's fire once more.
Now, onto other things.....

I have a new addiction. Well, I don't know if you can call it an addiction if you only have 12 ounces a day. I guess if it was any other drug...say marijuana, cocaine, herione, etc., 12 ounces would be a lot. But, it's not. It's just caffiene in this brilliant little can.

I was 3 for 3 this week. Yep, 3 stories, 3 front pages. But, it's not all glory and crowns. My last two stories were cut for length and I was much displeased. They generally cut from the bottom of an article up, so it feels like I don't know how to end an article....Or important quotes are cropped out. Oh well. I just spent the afternoon popping out another story for Monday's metro page (we were seriously lacking in stories), and am working on an Iran piece tomorrow. Did you know that BYU has a room on campus that Muslims can use for prayers, kind of like a mosque? True story....

Twins! Oh fer cute! Everett and I were both wearing plain Hane's v-neck tees today. The thing about my classes right now is that we all spend so much time together that after two weeks we feel like good friends. Love this guy. He makes me laugh.

And finally, I was able to take THE briefest of trips home last weekend and I saw this one very much missed lady. Here we be, both stunningly single...per usual. At least for me (the single part that is). Apparently (as shown by this photo) my friendship is a burden. Ha. She loves it.

And that is all, because for the last hour I should've been working on my first writing assignment for my media ethics class. An assignment that is due in 24 short hours. Adieu.
