6.5 hours

6.5 hours in a small room is makin me crazy.

The Information Diet.

Parents and Houses

When i meet someone
i always wonder what the inside of their home looks like
and what their parents look like.
im nosey.
i know.
my family calls me nosey Rosie sometimes.
but that's ok, because my middle name is Rose.
so i think that alone, allows me to be nosey.
well, today while surfing the web i found this: Other Peoples Houses.
though it doesn't show you what their parents look like,
you do get to see the inside of their homes.

pennies vs. quarters

i'd rather have four quarters

than one hundred pennies.
and i aint' talking about money.

The Other F Word.

(the other F word is Father. duuuh.)
i NEED to see this.

Look at that dot.


I have been at work for 6 hours.
I have one more hour.
I. can. do. this.
I am currently listening to THIS on NPR.
I'm realizing possessions are worse than worthless. Harmful.
I do not think I have ever said this, but I will say it now: I really want it to snow.
Lately I don't want to go to sleep; so last night I watched I Love Lucy until 3:30am.
I’m not cool, and I’m cool with that.
I am trying to understand how science can be so interesting, yet so boring at the same time.
(don't make me read one more scientific journal on the difference of a scientific law vs. hypothesis and which came first.)
I have great roommates this semester.
Some really nice new friends.
Good classes.
Horrible eating schedule. (last night I had a baked potato at 12:30 for dinner.)
New goals.
New attitude.
 The worst part of this  year so far?
Joes Filling Station closed.
Life ain't so bad.

George Albert Smith

This year we are studying out of Teachings of Presidents of the Church: George Albert Smith. I am honestly so excited for this. In the first chapter of the book, there is a list of resolutions George Albert Smith made that he called his “personal creed”—11 ideals that he committed to live by:

“I would be a friend to the friendless and find joy in ministering to the needs of the poor.

“I would visit the sick and afflicted and inspire in them a desire for faith to be healed.

“I would teach the truth to the understanding and blessing of all mankind.

“I would seek out the erring one and try to win him back to a righteous and a happy life.

“I would not seek to force people to live up to my ideals but rather love them into doing the thing that is right.

“I would live with the masses and help to solve their problems that their earth life may be happy.

“I would avoid the publicity of high positions and discourage the flattery of thoughtless friends.

“I would not knowingly wound the feelings of any, not even one who may have wronged me, but would seek to do him good and make him my friend.

“I would overcome the tendency to selfishness and jealousy and rejoice in the successes of all the children of my Heavenly Father.

“I would not be an enemy to any living soul.
