Go GC!

Can I just say I love General Conferance? I have found the perfect analogy. General Conferance, is like Red Bull. It gives you wings.

I always try and look for themes and such when I listen. I think the big topic was service and reactivation. Basically, we need to get off our bums and go to work. Too bad I have a lazy bum!

What I find so hard about General Conferance is, I feel like yeah lets go! We love our prophets! The Church is true! Jesus Lives! Amen! (hey thats my middle name) But I still don't do anything about it...*sigh*... maybe next time.

Favorite moments:

The kid who stood up and smiled at the camera on accident. I laughed a lot.

"Occasionally discouragement may darken our pathway; frustration may be a constant companion.. “Be not weary in well-doing. … Out of small things proceedeth that which is great.” President Thomas S. Monson (I was waiting for the small helm moment here but...alas...)

“It seems to me that you are so concentrated on finding the nuggets that you overlook the many precious simple flecks that you have here
" - M. Russell Ballard

"In the end, the number of prayers we say may contribute to our happiness, but the number of prayers we answer may be of greater importance. Let us open our eyes and see the heavy hearts, notice the loneliness and despair; let us feel the silent prayers of others around us; and let us be an instrument in the hands of the Lord to answer those prayers." ~Dieter F. Uchtdorf

"In fact, I bet there are some out there right now texting 'Pres. Uchtdorf has been talking for 10 minutes now, and still no aviation analogy ...'"
Preach the gospel at all time, and if necessary, use words. -St. Francis
I know there was more...but go ahead, comment, share your ideas of the themes or quotes or something. Comments equal love dontcha know.

I sometimes get a little terrified of the prospect of not always having classes, having to learn, and get stuff done with a deadline. I suppose as my 21st birthday comes more quickly than I would like, I start thinking about where I want to be. There are so many options, and I know that I have a plan, but maybe that's not what I REALLY want to do. But, the point of this post, is that I am also trying to be a little more......responsible for my future. Shocker, I know! I actually, literally, went into the high school, and talked to the principal (who happened to be my adviser then, as well as my brothers) about how to get hired, after I graduate. It was weird. She said the best way is to do your student teaching here. The only problem with that is that at BYUI, you don't really get to choose where you go, and that if a school asks for you, you definitely will not go there. At least, that's what everyone says.

Maybe I could pull the handicapped card?
