English Grammar Fail

Yes, this sign really is at an educational facility. I did a double take when I read it. Can you catch it?

Honesty, Its What You Need, Like Someone to Save You

My blog is funny to me because for some reason I feel so much safer half sharing intimate details about myself here than I do anywhere else.

This is probably incredibly annoying to some of you. I do prefer this method of communication because if I ever feel the need to say something emotionally close to me I can do it knowing that if you don't want to read it you can click elsewhere, or say out loud, "Lindsey, you're being awkward again," and I don't have to hear it. Sometimes I tell myself that I don't care if anyone even comments. Although that is a lie. I get sad when nobody comments. I love hearing what you have to say.

I was just thinking about how weird life is and how I have major trust issues, and yet, for some reason, I can come to this safe spot and spill my guts with little thought of retribution. Okay, that is a lie, I still worry a lot about what I post, but more often than not I find the courage to hit the publish post button and not look back.

White Winter Hymnal

School starts again tomorrow and grades were posted today. Grades are always my worst nightmare, seriously, nightmares of failing fill my nights. I know the only way to make them go away is to look, but I never want to. I did anyway. My GPA is within the "recommended GPA for first semester." Which is good I suppose. I don't know my ranking yet. I won't know that until the end of the month. Transferring may not be an option, but I think I'll try anyway, because you never know. Maybe they just want someone to show moxie. Or spunk. Whatev.

I have to go read for Civil Procedure and Criminal Law now. The good times man, they just never end.
I feel weird. Law school makes you feel weird because you put all of this effort into it, and your grades aren't necessarily meritorious. Like I honestly feel like I put forth an A effort. But some teachers just don't give out 'A's. So there you go. I mean its fine I guess, I really didn't come anywhere near faili…

What a Wonderful World

I am writing a story about my sister. The way it came about is a little funny to me. She said she wished someone would narrate her life, and I posted something on her facebook wall after telling her I would. But then I just kept thinking about it, what else I could say to narrate her life, and this story started taking shape in my head. So, here is the first part, the story of Alicia. 

Let me tell you the story of a girl named Alicia Mae. Alicia Mae moved to Provo, Utah to attend Brigham Young University. Amidst the infinite number of possibilities facing her with majors, she finally settled upon Earth and Space Science Education. This major was useful to her, as she could imagine what planets she would send the jerky missionaries she served food to at her job at the MTC. Our story begins in 2010, on a particularly interesting day for Alicia, Wednesday, when she had class, and was about to discover something incredible...
This Wednesday began as any other, Alicia awoke at 5 AM to the so…

You've Got the Choice, You've Got the Time of Day

I debated about doing a "year in review" or a "new year's resolution" post because everyone does those... but I found these questions and they seem sort of intriguing so I answered them. I'm looking forward to this year. I had a recent epiphany and I am reborn. 

It's time to move on. Also,there is a post just beneath this one with pictures of Christmas.

What did you do in 2009 that you'd never done before?
move across the country and start law school

Did you keep your new years' resolutions?
um. No. I did pretty well until about April.

What are some of your resolutions for 2010?
to keep an eternal perspective

Did anyone close to you give birth?

Did anyone close to you die?

What countries did you visit?
:( zero

What would you like to have in 2010 that you lacked in 2009?
its hard to say right now. Nothing material, something of true value

What date from 2009 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?
March 11. A moment of truth that forever ch…

Christmas Christmas Time is Here

This Christmas break was grand. I was almost late to the Manchester airport because the person who gave me a ride had a lot of issues come up the day of our flights, and I jetted out of Baltimore with a massive snowstorm coming right behind me. Then I spent weeks here in AZ in 65 degree weather soaking up the sun.

It's been so wonderful. I've spent a ton of time with my family. I've gone shopping with my mom, I got sunburnt yesterday. I've got to see some friends that I haven't seen in a few months. I got to play Beatles Rock Band on New Year's Eve. I've got to go to the gym and work out for the first time in months. I've gotten to drive to Mesa a few times to see folks and the wonderful Mesa temple lights.

Everything about this break has been great. This next week I'm going to start some hardcore summer job searching.
