My Latest Musical Addiction

is the amazing Fiona Apple. I literally can not stop playing her music on my iPod. I don't know why I have been missing out on all her music for the past 12 years..where was I? Maybe it's a reflection of my current state of emotion or maybe something entirely different, but either way I am totally inspired by this girl's music. She puts all her guts and emotion into every note of every song and I am totally hypnotized listening to her. One especially favorite song of mine is "Window" from her third album, Extraordinary Machine. Thank you Chelsea for introducing me to my latest obsession.

London Calling, Miss Staples

Karly left for London today. She will be gone for 2 months for the BYU Study Abroad program. At the moment she is sitting on an airplane somewhere over the Atlantic Ocean. Kar I will miss you so much. But I am so so proud of you! Everybody check out the link to her blog for updates from good old England.

Also, I'm starting to notice a pattern: my blog is all about what all my friends are doing. Sad.

God Be With You Til We Meet Again

Today was a hard day. But one of us had to be the first to leave. And I'm so grateful for Chris and his example. This is a period of huge changes in life and I kind of can't believe it's happening.

Masterpiece in Progress

So I'm kind of re-doing my bedroom. When I moved back from school, I decided it looked a bit drab so I've basically been doing everything but repainting!! My latest project has been creating a collage of pictures on this big empty space on my wall. Well, it started out relatively simple, but in the past three weeks it's kind of exploded and is now slowly taking over my entire wall. I think I've created a monster!
