Jen and I are starting a blog. More details to come.

I tried to take up crocheting, but that got a wee bit boring for me. I’ve been trying to finish up a book I’ve been reading, but that can only occupy a few hours of the day. I’ve watched a couple of movies. Now that I think about it, I don’t know what to do with free time. I haven’t had it in so long, that I’ve lost the ability to do nothing. At this point of my vacation time I’m usually on the first flight to anywhere I can go, but with the weather and airport travel problems right now there’s no way. You know what? I’m going to do something great in the next couple weeks. I’ll decide what that great thing will be tomorrow, but it will be worth while. No more of this boredom junk. Mind you me, by this time week after next I will have done, produced, managed, and/or created something of value…I better get to bed, and stop rambling.
New Years is soon…Resolution time.

Here's Nick again! He was so funny that night, and would say anything I asked him to.
It’s Christmas Eve. If anyone is interested the Mormon Tabernacle Choir is performing on PBS right now. I have to say there isn’t too much Christmas cheer in the Goldie house tonight. It’s just like any other night back home, really. I’m sure by mid-morning, and some of the kids get here there will be plenty of entertainment and excitement. As of right now I’m just wandering around the house while mom is in the living room watching T.V. (at an unbearable volume), Miranda is playing computer games for teenyboppers (kinda kidding), and Dad is at work.
If anyone else is in lack of Christmas excitement, here is a video to bring in the right kind of spirit. What a wonderful and amazing gift we all have received. It brings joy, humility, and gratitude to my heart when I think about it…Hey! There’s that Christmas joy. :)
Merry Christmas Everyone

This is my favorite thing when Andrea comes home...
I hope everyone has an amazing Christmas! Finals are OVER, and I'm FREE!...kinda. Hope my roommates have a great Christmas, too! I am so grateful they live with us. Kristin has been a great roommate, and I can't wait to see what we end up doing next semester to make life more entertaining...2009...

Days until commencement: 144!
Finals are just about over with, and I can't wait for a break! Mom, Dad, Miranda and I are heading to PA to see the Pennsylvanian Goldie's in a couple days! I'm hoping to make a trip out to UT, but that depends on if I can catch a flight (and they aren't looking too hot).
I had my music on shuffle a couple days ago, and a song came on I haven't listened to in quite a while. Yellowcard: Miles Apart. That was my song for the island. I can be such a dork, but it took me back so much. After I graduate I want to find that spot the island gave me. It feels like home, and gives a purpose to work hard. I have too many options for after graduation. I can't wait to figure out which one to choose...

Remember how I had that big ol' portfolio due today? Well, you can figure that I didn't get it done, but you can figure even more that about an hour ago an ice storm hit! Class is canceled, and my folder is due MONDAY!
He is too good to me...And makes me want to try harder, because of His graciousness.

Ok, Referring back to the picture of my dad on a previous post (one before last), does this sweet little boy not look exactly like my dad?! This is one of my awesome little nephews, Brennen. I just wanted to make sure I wasn't crazy...
It's like Jeffero Jr.
This is the first time in my college career where I have accepted the fact that I walk on the edge. Really, if you think about it my parents should be proud that of all things this is what I do. I could be into drugs, grunge bands, alcohol, beanie babies, or even NASCAR memorabilia. But no. I am a last minute fighter. And I'll be honest. It's a good thing I'm just now figuring this out. The fear of not getting things done in time has had me crank out some pretty spectacular work in impressive time. Will I by tomorrow? Most likely. That's just how I roll...I guess I should be getting to work now.
I didn't roll out of bed until 9ish. My roomie offered to hang out with me in ceramics lab, but before then we headed over to see our favorite jolly guy. Then we walked over to the lab, where after about an hr I was ready to do something else. I had a goal that I would finish a certain number of pieces in a certain amount of time (5 in 1hr). After that I looked at Andrea and said..."I feel like Christmas shopping". Off we went with my new friend Blake along side. We hit Goodwill, the Dollar Tree, and Pet Land (Those puppies are just too cute not to stop by and see), and stopped at Bob's for some dinner. After that I knew I needed to get at least my Sunday school lesson prepared. So, we dropped Blake off and headed to the house. On the way we passed by where one of Andrea's friends were, so we stopped in to rap presents...which evolved into long conversations. So, pretty much I didn't get home until after 10 or so.
End result: I had one of the best Sunday school classes I've taught, and everything due for Monday some how was enough. I am so grateful for how much I get looked after from up above. There's no way I'd make it through life w/o.

- I get more involved in the plot of the encyclopedia than with fiction.
- After over 20yrs of eating pizza I was recently informed I fold slices in half when I eat it (hot dog length). Habit I never noticed.
- I have a slight phobia of parasites (aka...worms)
- I prefer to sleep on a coach/futon/floor over most beds.
- I have no idea where I'll be in six months, and this is kind of exciting for me.
- I am introverted, but I do extroverted activities.
- I'm realizing that everything I prayed for as a child is coming true in different ways than expected.
