The one year anniversary of mooching off of BYU Campus has come and gone. Ralf Waldo Emerson inspired me to try to live independently and deliberately. Living on campus was memorable but exhausting. I never slept too well and carrying my stuff around was a burden. Here is the original project. Maybe some day I will produce an extended version.

My boss was asking about my BYU ID picture and I explained that it was a family tradition/contest to get away with the craziest BYU ID picture. They have really cracked down lately. I had to retake my last one more than once. I told my boss that my brother's had pretty good ones too. She told me to pull up their BYU records in our database...

Between something I read from Og Mandinos and discussing the parable of the talents in church today I concluded the following.
No matter how rich or awesome you are, you have the exact number of hours in a day as someone who isn't as deece. A king and a bum both have 24 hours in a day. How they use that time is the difference in who they are. Although maybe that is a bad example because when I think of a bum I picture him sitting in the shade of a tree with a few dirty belongings and a back pack. When I picture a king he is also sitting around but in a really ornate chair. So I guess how they use their time actually only determines how nice of a chair they get to sit in.
Every week I sit in church for 3 hours. To be quite honest, sometimes I leave church thinking, "that was sort of a waste of time. I think I would have enjoyed myself more doing many other things." In spite of this reoccurring feeling, I can count on one hand how many times I have missed church on Sunday in the last 23 years. Even if I go unwillingly, I still go every week because I feel it is the right thing to do.
What am I getting at? Besides the point of how awesomely religious I am, the point I am really trying to make is, just like the King and the Bum, I get to choose the intensity of those 3 hours in church. Like most things in life, the more I put into those three hours of church, the more I will get out of them. Either way, I will pass 3 hours in church.
We are given time, how much we make of it is up to us.

10 days left of summer...I was making a bucket list but this seems more like a "to do" list because "get checked for narcolepsy" is not something I MUST DO before I kick the bucket. I'm really mainly doing this because I realized my last entry is about the flights from denver.
1. move in
3. get checked for narcolepsy
4. plan out the semester
