double-duty: So today and last night were a bit stressful. I'll start with yesterday morning. I got a call from Brother Rickson in my bishopric and was surprised to hear him ask me to give a talk in sacrament meeting. I said yes and then told him that I was also teaching Gospel Doctrine... perhaps in hopes that he would retract his invite, but he didn't mention it and just carried on with the conversation! Subtle-attempt-at-getting-out-of-speaking FAIL! So last night I had to plan both my talk and my lesson. I feel like neither was great because I didn't give either enough time to develop. Oh well... the important thing is that I'm done with double-duty, and I didn't get booed out of my lesson or off the stand.
crying: As I was leaving home yesterday I mentioned to my mom that the week ahead of me was going to be very tough. "If ever there was going to be a week where I called home from school crying... this would be it." I'm frankly very scared. I don't know if I'm going to be able to get through all of it with the grades I want. My GIS class as I mentioned a couple posts ago is NOT treating me well. I'll live, but hopefully I'll be happy with the outcome.
heartburn: I don't think I've ever experienced heartburn until the past few weeks. It's not great. I don't like it. And I wish to voice my opinion that it should be stopped. That is all.
blue l.e.d. christmas lights: I know some of you have heard me rant about them before, but I really don't like the new l.e.d. Christmas lights that are blue. People think I'm crazy when I say this, but they hurt my eyes. Yesterday, as I helped my mom put up her new l.e.d. Christmas lights, I finally figured out why. I like the colors of her lights, but the blue ones are different. She and I went out to her sidewalk to look at the lights when they came on in the evening. I noticed that when I looked directly at the bulbs of the blue ones (my mom has the large-style lights) they're all fuzzy and my eyes won't focus on them! The other colors... my eyes can focus on them just fine. (I like the green.) But when I stared directly at the blue ones, they look all blurry! So they've been messing with my eyes from a distance all this time that I've been complaining about them. So there! I'm NOT crazy! (Provided ranting about Christmas lights doesn't qualify me for crazy.)
a lack of bloggage: As mentioned before... this next week is going to be tough. And unless I'm going to be shirking on my school-work, you should probably not see me on here for a while. The semester ends next week. Wish me luck!
k, see ya.
