A Couple of New Buzzworthy Blogs

Ladies and gentlemen, my dear devoted reader(s). Introducing a pair of brand-new blogs for your reading pleasure.

First up is the blog of my dear friend Miss Chelsea Wilson. (PS I just figured out how to make a link! Go me!) Chelsea in Wonderland chronicles Miss Wilson's grand adventures as a Musical Theater major at the top-rated and incredibly prestigious University of Michigan. Just in case you somehow missed the memo (which if you personally know me I guarentee I've told you) UMich is the #1 Musical Theater program in the country. In the entire U.S. of A. 10 guys and 10 girls were accepted out of the 700+who were invited to audition. One of those 10 was my best friend Chelsea. Yes. That gives you a tiny smidge of an idea how incredibly amazingly talented she is. Most days I still marvel at the fact that I know her, much less that I'm friends with her. Long story short, you should really read her blog because you will be reading the thoughts and experiences of a future Broadway superstar. Just ask Gavin Creel. Or Hunter Foster. Danny Gurwin. Andrew and Celia Keenan-Bolger. Pasek and Paul. Yeah. She's on a list with those people. Love you Chels.

Next up is actually a blog that is kind of about me. Dani, (hopefully you all know who she is by now if you read this blog), has started a blog about me and the other guys. My Boys will follow the 6 of us as we go on missions and Dani as she goes to AFRICA for spring and summer 2009. It should be really for fun for people to read as we spread out across the world and reunite in two years! SO you should check out both of these blogs! And comment on my post :)

Resignation

it's been two whole years
since you and I shared fears
2:30 AM
talking til sleep inside that diner
and now in your eyes
i can't find You.

sorry that
i'm Taken Aback
but how I am, you never ask
and I don't need such sympathy
but a care would be so
nice to have, once in a while
you mean more to me
than I could ever tell
so sorry that
i'm Taken Aback
but I just can't Help it

someday this will go away
and everything I am will just leave and fade
And I hope then, that you will Understand
It's not everything I am
My Dear Only Friend.

So sorry that I'm Taken Aback.
But how I am you never ask...

You mean more to me than I could ever tell.
So sorry that I'm taken aback.
But I just can't help it.

An Unexpected Twist

So I got an interesting update last night from my good friend Andy (above, right. obviously. since he's not me) who is currently serving his mission in Santa Cruz, Bolivia. Due to the current political situation in Bolivia, all the missionaries have been taken out of the country. So at the moment, he and all the other missionaries have been taken to Brazil, and next week he will fly to Peru to get reassigned somewhere else for the remainder of his mission. Which means no more Bolivia. So crazy. First Russia, now Bolivia....the missionary force is losing ground! I'm just glad Andy and all the other missionaries are safe and taken care of. And I'm very grateful Canada is a relatively tame country ha. I'll be sure to post where he is being reassigned as soon as I find out!

Words to Live By...

"Make a wish and place it in your heart. Anything you want. Everything you want. Do you have it? Good. Now believe it can come true. You never know where the next miracle is going to come from, the next smile, the next wish come true. But if you believe that it's right around the corner, and you open your heart and mind to the possibility of it, to the certainty of it, you just might get the thing you're wishing for. The world is full of magic. You just have to believe in it. So make your wish. Do you have it? Good. Now believe in it. With all your heart."
