In the Sun

I just saw this and loved it so much I couldn’t resist sharing. Hopefully this adds a little sunshine to your day, especially for those of you who are in Utah where it just snowed again. Ugh. Enjoy!

I also think it’s important to note that their new cd comes out on my birthday. It’s like a gift directly to me.

Elevator Encounters

Elevators are a great source of funny experiences. I have all sorts of great stories from them, including a seemingly near death experience at the fire department in Portland and all sorts of things that happened in the lifts for the tube in London. Today I got to add another mini-story to my collection.

It started out with what could have been a frustrating experience, with a whole mob waiting to use the elevators in the SWKT, and one of the four elevators reserved for construction. Instead this is what happened that I quite enjoyed:

After waiting three times for an elevator I could fit in, I happened to get into one with Max Hall (it was only for a split second before he relized it was going up instead of down, but it still counts). The elevator ended up with about ten people smushed together, but two professors just joked the whole time about how they had brought food with them in case the elevator got stuck and how we were all going to have to split a half a cup of water.

On the way back down I had the lucky priviledge of riding with Ukelele Boy, who had provided tropical entertainment while I waited for elevators on both ends of my trip, and then inside our elevator. It was much better than elevator music and totally made my day.

The whole experience was so lovely that I decided to treat myself to frozen yogurt in the cougareat (Royal Raspberry, 15 cents an ounce).

I'm sure you should all just go ride a bunch of elevators so you can have something fun happen to you too.

Since I don’t have time for a real post (ok, mostly I just don’t have an idea), I will leave you with this thought:

I have more going on than I ever have before and negative time to even think, but I’m still incredibly bored.

How in the world does that work?

P.S. If someone could make something funny happen so I can have more material for this blog that would be much appreciated. Thanks.

So, I’ve hit another one of those weeks of pure insanity where all you want in life is to melt into a couch and eat sugary things. But, I just got back from an awesome Relief Society meeting for my stake where we got to have a Q&A session with Sister Beck, who is the current Relief Society General President for the Church. She answered any questions anyone had about life, and gave advice on how to handle various struggles. It was really just a beautiful couple of hours, and it really put things back into perspective. I think I needed that with all the stress from school right now. It can sometimes be a little too easy to lose track of the things that are important, and what our real goal in life is.

On a completely unrelated note I discovered a new place in Provo that I’m in love with. It’s a letterpress studio with some really awesome people called Rowley Press. You should check out the story I wrote about it for upp.

And on another happy note, we got a new microwave today. It’s a gift directly from heaven. Our last microwave I’ve been using for almost a year and a half was made circa 1984 and had dials and such. I feel like microwave popcorn didn't even exist when it was made. It’s so old I can’t even find a photo of it on the internet to share its hideousness with you. But now it’s ok, because we have a functional new one so I won’t have to feel like I’m going to die of microwave radiation every time I heat something up.

(Yet another side note, I took the picture above at Utah lake when I was trying to escape from the craziness that is Provo. I have some fun ones, but negative time to edit them. So maybe they’ll be posted sometime this year?)
