About This Blog
A blog about my life, universe, etc. At any given time you might find something endlessly interesting or just me ruminating on something else, which no one (not even myself) finds interesting. That's the way blogs go, I suppose. Anyway, I was eleventh in line, and you weren't. Hah!

About My Family
My mom is a
lawyer in Pickerington; my stepdad and dad are computer guys, and my stepmom (who works with my dad) is an engineer. My sisters are, in order of age, a photographer, an artist, and a person too young to have her own website. My brothers are, in order of age, living up north, and again, a person too young to have a website. At some point soon I'll be collecting links for my aunts, uncle, and cousins. ^_^

An experiment upon the... well, you know.  

But behold, if ye will awake and arouse your faculties, even to an experiment upon my words, and exercise a particle of faith, yea, even if ye can no more than desire to believe, let this desire work in you, even until ye believe in a manner that ye can give place for a portion of my words.

I have a confession: I've never actually read the Book of Mormon all the way through. And I've only read probably 50-60% of the Doctrine & Covenants. Thanks to Seminary, I've actually read the Old and New Testaments, but I mean, come on. I'm the girl who's already read the textbook before class starts. This is pathetic. How on earth can I say I believe in something I haven't even read?

So, I've decided I'm going to listen to the scriptures on tape (well, MP3 -- you can fit the entire Book of Mormon on about 60% of a single CD.) I'm going in this order:

1. Book of Mormon
2. Doctrine & Covenants
3. Pearl of Great Price
4. New Testament
5. Old Testament

So far I'm through Mosiah 13. And I think it's working. Will comment more later -- I'm also going to take all of the last six BYU Womens' Conferences and a bunch of General Conferences and a ton of BYUTV shows with me to the Star Wars line. Should be fun times, I think.

And if nothing else, I figure I'll have the scriptures themselves memorized before the six weeks of the line are over. ^_^

*note* reading is a really, really, REALLY hard thing to do in line -- and you can't read at work (at least while you're actually working); I don't want to get into the "woohoo, I've finished 2nd Nephi, now I'll take a week off" mentality, since that always turns into "wow, it's been a year since I last picked this book up... where was I? Nah, nevermind, I'll just start over... 'I, Nephi, having been born...'" Yeah, no. Not this time. Grr.
