MUSIC and ART have my HEART!

I finally had an afternoon to myself today! What do I do? Finish a book I really like: My Stroke of Insight.
I also came up with an idea. I’m going to start a list of links I’ll call MUSIC and ART have my HEART. I’ll have links to music and artists that really move me, or get me up dancing. I’ll warn you now, I have some interesting taste. But hey! That’s what makes us special!

Dear Bloggers

Oh, this wonderful world of blog! It’s silly how much I enjoy it. I love finding people’s blogs I haven’t seen in years, and them finding mine! I love continually pressing “next blog” until I finally find one in English, or with pretty pictures. I love wasting hours of precious time reading about someone else’s life or ideas. In honor of my love of blogs I have done a bloggy thing. I am responding to a tag. My dear friend Sarah tagged me, so here it is!

8 Things:

8 Things I'm passionate about

  1. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints
  2. Saving the children (AKA: Making the world a better place for our Heavenly Father’s children)
  3. Creativity
  4. Health
  5. Food
  6. Finding “Joy in the Journey”
  7. Family
  8. Knowledge

8 Words or Phrases I say Often

  1. “I can’t wait to graduate!
  2. “I have to work.”
  3. “Sweet!”
  4. “If you could be any {Blank} (examples being fruit, animal, superhero, etc.), what would it be?”
  5. “Put your hands forward, and kiss!” (Telling girl scouts how to get their horse to go)
  6. “No, mom. It’s not me. I’m asking for a friend.”
  7. “You’re making it harder than it is.”
  8. *Usually the first thought that pops in my head

8 Things I want to do Before I Die

  1. Visit every continent
  2. Write a book
  3. Make a difference in the world
  4. Become a SCUBA instructor
  5. Become a CHA horseback riding instructor
  6. Learn how to talk to animals
  7. Become a scientist (or teach myself how to be one by reading Wikipedia and watching YouTube)
  8. Become one of those crazy old ladies that can do anything they want because they’re old and “crazy” (only I’ll have all my wits about me…)

8 Things I Currently Want or Need

  1. To graduate!
  2. To know where I’ll be in a year
  3. To be totally caught up in schoolwork
  4. To have a free day!
  5. A puppy with floppy ears!
  6. To visit my grandma, and family
  7. To do some artwork
  8. To have a boyfriend (This one’s for my parents)
There we have it! Honestly, 8 things are hard to come up with. Maybe it should be five. Besides, not only is coming up with 8 not easy, but reading through them isn’t a piece of cake either. Anyways, I’ll tag Jen, Bek, Christyn, and Mallory because they are some of the few I know read my blog on occasion, and have a blog. :)

Hey! I just got an idea! If any of you have anything you’d like me to write on, feel free to let me know! I don’t have a ton of blog regulars yet (me living in southern Ohio), but that doesn’t mean I can’t have fun with this. If there is any topic you would like my take on, or crazy rant about just leave a comment. This could be interesting, or boring if no one has any ideas.

Have a great October!

Please Don't Stop The Music...

Ok, so this morning I was driving to my field visit and flipping through stations trying to find one that would let me know if there was a delay. The fog was incredibly thick, and if it was Wilmington we would have had at least an hour delay. Suddenly I turned to that song that just repeats Please don’t stop the music about a million times (I’m sure that has to be the name of it, too), and I look ahead to an amazing sight. Have you ever seen a garbage truck with its fog lights on? It is pretty cool. No lie, the lights were in perfect sync with the song. I had to leave it on the station and dance for a couple minutes. It was so awesome. The fog, and the crazy lights made the 7am drive feel like a night club. I giggled…yes, to myself. Life is just so silly sometimes.
