Me: Congrats on Cambria making it to 18 years!

Anonymous asked: Can you give the citations for coffee staying in your system for many years? I've never heard that before and would like to see the research :)
HAHAHA. I totally misspoke
(miswrote?). I meant, the effects of coffee on your system can last decades (heightened cholesterol from cafestol residues, carcinogens, etc.). This is why you don’t answer asks after pulling an all-nighter.
Anonymous asked: Do you have a favourite hymn?
There Is a Green Hill Far Away. Love, love, love that hymn. :)
I had a bishop that came to Young Women’s annually to give talks similar to this. I laughed and cried on the inside; laughed because what he was perpetuating was beyond ridiculous, and cried because I knew there were young, impressionable girls that believed him.
"Seeking means: to have a goal; but finding means: to be free, to be receptive, to have no goal."
Anonymous asked: If you look at it from a scientific perspective, wouldn't you find following the WoW beneficial????
I never said it wasn’t. There’s plenty of research to back up how coffee can stay in your system for decades, and it’s a fact that alcohol stomps all over your brain.
There is a Two and a Half Men
Charlie Sheen obvi. Ashton…just no scene that sums up my feelings about the WoW
Anonymous asked: Do you consider yourself a theistic evolutionist?
I’m somewhere on that spectrum I suppose.
"The most noble kind of beauty is that which does not carry us away suddenly,
whose attacks are not violent or intoxicating but which infiltrates slowly,
what we carry along with us almost unnoticed,
and meet up with again in dreams."

WHO’S GONNA BE MY PENPAL(s)???
"All day I think about it, then at night I say it. Where did I come from, and what am I supposed to be doing? I have no idea. My soul is from elsewhere, I’m sure of that, and I intend to end up there."
Anonymous asked: Woah. Not to sound offensive, but....you don't want to be married now?
I don’t know what verb to use.
It’s not something I need or require as a defining authority of a long-term, committed relationship. I guess that it’s more me just saying that marriage, in my opinion, only changes the legal recognition of a relationship. I don’t think of it as a defining factor of how I feel about someone. BUT IDK.
TALKING ABOUT MARRIAGE GIVES ME HIVES.
Anonymous asked: Do you still believe in being chaste?
Sex is a personal subject, and therefore I believe everyone should make their own decisions based on their individual situation. With that said, I also believe in making informed decisions. I am fortunate enough to have parents that created a safe environment in which I could ask any and all questions without fearing judgement. I’ve been able to gather information, and apply that to who I am as a person.
The church’s definition of being chaste is: no sex before marriage. Welp, I don’t know if marriage is something that I want, not in the legal sense of it. So would sex with a partner whom I’m committed to be less valid than if we were legally married? I don’t believe so.
So, I guess that means no?
