ACED IT!!!

You know that feeling when you walk out of a class right after you take a test, and you KNOW you did absolutely fabulous!? I LOVE IT!!! Seriously! It's almost as good as winning a really really close basketball game! 
Every time I don't feel like studying, I have to remind myself why I'm up here at school- and I'm writing that reason down on here, so that every time I look on here, and read this blog, I'll be reminded. School for me is more like a responsibility than anything else. What I learn here will affect more than just me. I wouldn't like a doctor who aced all his easy classes, but when it came to the harder ones, he barely got by with a C by cramming before his tests! I'm up here to learn, meet new people, and get involved, not to earn grades! Geez! That sounds way serious, but really, what I learn up here will affect more than just my career, it'll affect my future family, neighbors, and community! Wow!! 
That's why I love school!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OH!! and P.S. I got a 93% on my test today!!! YEESSSSSS!!

News Flash!!

I just got done watching the news with my roommates, and I have gotta say that i don't think I've felt so depressed in my life!! As I was watching I just kept getting this sinking feeling as they jumped from our economy dying a horrible death to the hurricane in Texas- all while police sirens were going off in the background of the news anchor!! So I left the room because I just couldn't take it anymore!! I came to my room to study, but instead, I found myself looking for good news online... and FOUND IT!!!! :D K, listen to this: There are websites CHALK FULL of just good news!!!!

Reflections of Christ

So on my campus there's an exhibit of pictures showing a progression of major events in Christ's life! I went and saw it today, and it was freaking awesome!! I'll post the link to the website on the blog... seriously, it was the absolute coolest exhibit I've ever seen... even though i haven't seen a lot of them, this one beats all! Basically, it's a collection of pictures Mark Mabry took of people posing as christ at different stages of his life. The second you walk into the room, peace instantly surrounds you, it's the greatest feeling in the world- and I won't lie, I teared up a little bit! The collection has been on tour, and will be over in salt lake during the LDS General Conference. Boy, I really can't say enough good about it! It rocks- check it out!! It's called the Reflections of Christ by Mark Mabry.
