I've been getting kind of bored during the day, so I made a list of things I could do to keep me busy. One of the items was to go on an alphabet walk. It's pretty self explanatory, you take pictures of things starting with letters of the alaphabet, like A for ant, B for bike...etc. So in the last 2 days I've been on hour long walks all over the provo area snapping pictures. I was surprised at how hard it was to actually find things beginning with every letter. Or maybe I was just thinking to hard about it when the obvious was right in my face. The most difficult letters on this walk to find were, I J K Q U V X and Z. There are just not many things lying around starting with those letters. I had to get a little creative.

Well, not really. I like to pretend like I love crafts, because I would really like to be good at them and I think it's a great accomplishment to say you made something but lets be honest, I have zero patience. I'm not the perfectionist type when it comes to crafts. I just like to do it fast and get it done so i can use it, but then I look at everybody else's crafts that they slaved over and am really jealous because they look so much nicer. But nevertheless, I'm proud of the junk I make. :)
These are some earings I made. The best part is I have more I can make and I got everything I needed to make them with for $5
This Bowl I made at "COLOR ME MINE" I love that place. I could go there everyday and find something new to paint and use. This bowl reminds me of something you'd see on a cheerio box. I feel like they have a big heart shaped bowl with cheerios in it because you know " CHEERIOS CAN HELP LOWER YOUR CHOLESTEROL"

I LOVE THE FESTIVAL OF COLORS. I will find a way to go every year for as long as I can. Such a fun event! It's celebrated in Spanish fork at an indian temple. You buy bags of chalk and you say a little chant together and then they have a count down and on 1 like at new years eve when you throw confetti and stuff you throw chalk and it's crazy! I though I might die Because I was swallowing so much chalk. But it's probably one of the funnest things I've done.

I'm thinking of becoming a professional rock climber. Okay that's a lie, because I'm terrified of heights, I can't imagine doing the real thing without a harness and your safety buddy that helps lower you down. If I wasn't so afraid of heights though I'd climb every mountain
Can You see the fear written all over my face?!

Today I'm driving down the road, when my CD cuts out, I think to myself that it's just scratched. Then a couple of seconds later as I'm slowing down to stop at a light it stops playing completely, now I'm thinking Gee it must really be scratched. So I go to eject it, and it won't eject, then i realize that my CD player is just turned off, then I take a look around me and realize that my car isn't moving at all. So my thought is how on earth did I stall my car. I tried restarting it and nothing, by now there is quite a line of cars behind me. I'm getting a little stressed and pull out my phone and realize I have no emergency numbers in my phone. I am not equipped for situations like this! After a couple of minutes FINALLY and nice young couple stop and help push me into a gas station. There we diagnose that my car has either
A) blown a fuse (best case scenerio)
B) The alternator is dead or
C) the battery is dead.
The last 2 I'm really hoping are not the case. The reason why it possibly could've blown a fuse is because everything just shut down. My lights don't work, my speedometer is frozen in place at 30 MPH cause that's how fast I was going when I died, and my automatic locks don't work.
Finally a tow truck comes and gets me to an automotive shop. Where I have yet to hear about the diagnosis of my poor baby.

It's coming to my attention that my brain is like a spinning wheel. I spin and spin on mistakes that I make in a day. It seems harmless to think about your mistakes and feel bad about them, but it can take it's toll and really start to affect a person negatively. It's like repentance. Once you actually repent you feel so much better and while you may still think of the event it serves as a building piece in the giant puzzle called life. We can learn from our mistakes, but it's important to not make them the focus of our lives. In the words of Macbeth, "What's done is done." There's no changing the past so forget about it and move on with your life. I think that has been the most meaningful lesson I've learned lately. I'll save myself a lot of pain if I just look at it as, I'm human, I will make mistakes, I will learn from them, and I will move on.

1. IT'S CLOGGED WITH LOTS OF GIRLS HAIR.
2. It's got a dryer sheet stuck in it
3. Numerous twist ties
4. An earing.
That is what I found in our vacuum the other day. I noticed it wasn't doing that great of a job sucking up so I flipped it over and found the sources behind it. DISGUSTING.

Today I was riding in an elevator with 11 other people. It was in a 2 story building and we were going from the first floor to the basement. Well little did we know we'd gone over the maximum occupancy and we stressed out the elevator a little bit, because we caused it to go a foot below the basement floor and stay there. We were stuck in there for a good 25 mins. My first reaction was a little manic. I started laughing which caused me to get really hot which caused me to stress out a little which made me think about the situation some more and start thinking of worse case scenerios which made me get a little claustrophobic which then led to more laughing and over heating that i couldn't stop. Needless to say i was getting really stressed and wanted to get out ASAP. But i eventually calmed down and was able to handle the next 20 mins. They eventually got the top door open and took off the ceiling and lowered a ladder. As soon as i got onto solid ground i collapsed and was tempted to kiss it. It was a great way to end a day at work.
