Going to bed super early tonight so I can get up early and study for my Anatomy test. Please pray for me and wish me luck!
90% of the status updates on my Facebook news feed were about basketball. Another subject of note was the Lady Gaga concert in Salt Lake.
Today, this bothered me. Do the majority of my friends know that the US fired missiles on another country today and we are now involved in another war? Are they preparing themselves against the possibility of a natural disaster like the one that hit Japan, or the possibility of radiation problems? Do they know that the moon will be closer to the earth tonight than it's been in 18 years and will probably appear bigger than any of us can remember seeing it, and would probably be a sight worth seeing?
Are they thinking about people who could use a friend? Are they thinking about the spring weather and all the awesome things they could be doing outdoors? Is their soul growing in any way as a result of their activity? Are they living up to their basic responsibilities? Is what they're doing really worth it?
I feel bad for judging now. And being negative. But I wanted to say this...but didn't want to put it on Facebook for fear of being attacked. =P
And I definitely recognize that I need to learn to have more fun. I guess you can probably tell that watching basketball does not fit the criteria of fun, for me.
If anyone would like to challenge me to some form of a game of basketball, I will gladly accept. =)

Sara, from my ward, also said that she would be my friend, as well as the other girls in her apartment. I like Sara. She's happy, kind, smart, fun, and empathetic.
Went crazy momentarily and volunteered to be in the Talent Show next week, and make cookies for it as well. Now I'm kinda pretty nervous about it... But I need to be more involved, so it's a good thing. =)
I really like the frame I painted. I like my paintings so much that I don't want to turn it into a drum like I'm supposed to, because the tape would hinder my ability to see clearly what I painted. And I just like it too much.

"For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither hath the eye seen, O God, beside thee, what he hath prepared for him that waiteth for him." (Isaiah 64:4)

"Some of you may wonder: Is there any future for me? What does a new year or a new semester, a new major or a new romance, a new job or a new home hold for me? Will I be safe? Will life be sound? Can I trust in the Lord and in the future? Or would it be better to look back, to go back, to stay in the past?I have so much to look forward to. Today's miracle is that my future is going to be awesome. God has great things in store for me. And not necessarily only in my distant and far away future. =) Life is good. It's epic.
To all such of every generation, I call out, “Remember Lot’s wife.” Faith is for the future. Faith builds on the past but never longs to stay there. Faith trusts that God has great things in store for each of us and that Christ truly is the “high priest of good things to come” (Hebrews 9:11).
Keep your eyes on your dreams, however distant and far away. Live to see the miracles of repentance and forgiveness, of trust and divine love that will transform your life today, tomorrow, and forever. That is a New Year’s resolution I ask you to keep."
