Signs of Old Age...AH!!!

#1--I started a blog. Yes, that thing that married couples to to show their family vacations and pregnancy photos, that is what blogs are for. A family journal, if you will (or a way to show off cute kids). And, I began one...kidless.
#2--I attended a book party. Yes, it is on the list of Mary Kay parties, jewelry parties, Avon parties, and Pampered Chef parties. Every one was buying books for their toddlers, nephews, and grandchildren and telling great success stories of childhood reading. Don't get me wrong, I totally agree with this and think it is essential. Unfortunately, I do not have grandchildren, nephews, or toddlers. So yes, not only did I attend a book party, but I also bought a book. It is pictured on the right. Why did I buy a book on Martin Luther King, Jr for ages 7 and up? No idea--I am becoming like my grandma who buys Bath and Body Works goods every time she receives a coupon (we don't think she knows she can let those monthly coupons go to waste--that she doesn't HAVE to use them). Anyways, I love that my grandma does this because she is so generous and sends me many appreciated care packages. Now, I am rambling. I am getting old!
#3--I am becoming indecisive (for lack of a better word). There are so many new things I want to do! Add a minor in Political Science, learn ASL, learn Spanish, student teach in DC, go to DC and NY, get married (haha), do BYUSA, keep working, get my Masters, the list continues...So basically, there are just way too many great things to do and not enough time to do it in unless I become a lifelong student at BYU. That is not going to happen.
#4--I can no longer get by with 4 hours of sleep nightly like Freshman Year. I need at least 5.
#5--I took a cooking class. For Fun. Who does that?
#6--TBC...

AMBIE! I am so incredibly happy that you got a blog. It is definitely interesting, despite that you are kidless, haha :)More interesting than my kidless life, for certain. I never ever see you or talk to you, so it was nice to read and feel like I was talking to you in a weird sort of non-social way...Ummm, yeah. I loved the list, by the way, and I love you!

TBC? What?

I'm glad you bought a book at the Usborne show. You love it - admit it.

I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who actually needs sleep now. Sometimes I look back on our late nights freshman year with nostalgia...hm. Anyways, I guess I'm getting old too because of that and because I started a blog too. You and Belgium inspired me. So you should show me how to get links to other people's because I haven't mastered that yet...
