"How are you alive?!? Shouldn't you be dead somewhere? In a ditch?!?"
-Reyna to Me.
*Talking about how I've never had real maple syrup. Or how I've never had raspberries till this summer, or avocados, or blueberries, or pesto, or cherries, or a variety of non preservatived foods for that matter.
"I'm a jew, I'm a jew! f*** f*** f***!"

On how to interpret the spirit.
- Make sure you approach Him with only one question. You can't go the Lord with a multitude of questions and expect one answer.
- Don't seek counsel from a butt load of people. They will try and persuade you. Only ask a few trusted people, and take their opinions as a part of research and not the answer to a prayer.
- Answers don't come amongst distractions. Joseph went to the sacred grove, and Moses went to the top of the Mount. We need peace and serenity to feel the spirit, but we have to seek it out and find a place separate from our daily lives.
- Be humble. Pure and simple. It takes a great deal of strength to be humble in a world where humility is view as a weakness.
- Be patient.
Harold B. Lee: "Sometimes you don't get an answer. Do what you want and the Lord will sustain you in it."
L. Alvin Porter: "Learning to interpret the spirit is like learning a language. You aren't born into the world with the knowledge. It's also difficult because he speaks to everyone differently, and you can't be taught."

Guess what, it actually says something:
It's gorgeous. Well, not when I speak it, but I love it.
And now I'm coveting once more. A print of the first picture would be a dream.

"You can tell Heavenly Father you don't want children, you can tell him you're going to wait to have children, but no matter what, no matter how hard you ask, how hard you pray, you can't make Him give you children."

Let's see... Apartment is great, my room is kinda small (and a mess). The girls are great.
First day of classes was fun, a little overwhelming, but fun.
Second day of Arabic is possibly going to kill me. But hey, it's what I live for, right?
