I’ve effectively evolved into a mermaid

A stake rep invited the congregation sing this hymn during his talk. Really beautiful and comforting. Not a dry eye in the joint.

Average Convos Ft. Moose

Roommate: “How did your tour with the kindergartners go?”

Me: “Good- though most of them thought Moose were carnivores.”


Roommate: “Oh my god, that’s hilarious.”

Roommate: "Wait…actually that’s a terrifying image."

Me: "You’re telling me! I’m gonna have nightmares about weremoose for weeks!"

Anonymous said: 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.

There Is a Green Hill Far Away. Love, love, love that hymn. :)

Meridian Magazine - A YSA Bishop Talks to the Sisters About Intimacy

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.

Anonymous said: 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

I’m somewhere on that spectrum I suppose.
