Thirteen Thoughts

I don't know if I can make this post interesting, and I certainly don't feel like trying. ;)

I got my books in the mail today, and I'm really excited about one of them. It's Left to Tell: Discovering God Amidst the Rwandan Holocaust. By Imaculee Ilibagiza. Just the foreword was amazing. So for kicks, here's what got me excited
"You're about to embark on a journey that will undoubtedly change the way you view the power of faith--forever."
"...a story of a love for God that was so strong that hatred and revenge were forced to dissolve in its presence."
Those are just a couple. I could go on! I really could. I didn't know a thing about the genocide. More than one million people murdered in roughly 100 days. Insane. I'm so excited to start reading it.

Next thought! When I handed this kid his change today, he told me I have soft hands. I wonder if he's the same kid that told me he loves me.

Dry skin is probably the most irritating thing ever. Thanks, Proactiv. Now I know why you made that green tea moisturizer. Scam! Ha.

Chewy Chips Ahoy are amazing.

I've now burned through 3 missionaries. Elder Everett, Elder Oliver, and Elder Schofield. First two went home, Elder Schofield was moved to a different part of town. I still have Elder Sherwood, and the new one who is just beginning his mission. Elder.. B something. I can tell they want me to make a decision soon, but I'm still learning!

After much debating, I decided to take a nap today. My mom woke me up about 20 minutes later. I then developed a large headache and couldn't fall asleep again.

I keep wondering how we're going to spend Christmas this year. The past few years we've gone to Illinois. I'd like to go again. I miss my cousins, and my grandparents.

I really need to work out again. I mean.. really. My arms are getting all soft :(

I'm so excited for tonight. Cookies, shower, book, sleep. Almost in that order.

Guys with super bushy eyebrows kinda freak me out. But not as much as Shakira does.

Am I the only one that can't make it through an entire thing of yogurt without getting grossed out? When I'm about 2/3 done there's just no way I can go on.

If you believe it, live like you believe it. Don't skirt around the parts you don't like. Cheaters.

I'd really like to start saying "For shame!" again. I got the opportunity to do it a few days ago, made me feel whole inside.

What about dominoes? Any thoughts on those little black and white pieces of heaven?
