This is Just to Say

I don't really know what to say besides things are busy. And I wanted to post because 1) I know people read my blog and dead blogs are no fun to read, and 2) I really do enjoy posting. Life is just crazy.

But we all know that.

There's lots that I was planning on posting on from the last two weeks, but I think that I'll just say that I love General Conference. And President Uchtdorf's talk was my favorite. I'm really going to try to slow down, and refocus on the things that really matter: faith, family, and friends. And even though my life is hectic right now, that doesn't mean that I can't stop to enjoy the changing colors of a chestnut leaf, or look up at the Y lit for Homecoming.

In fact, being busy means that I SHOULD take the time to slow down and enjoy the simple miracles of life. Otherwise I will drown in a sea of overwhelming schedules and appointments.

So that's what I'm going to do, despite the craziness of college life.

By the way, I'm reading for fun again (which feels so wonderful). I'm reading The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. It's an amazing book. I recommend it to anyone and everyone.


  1. President Uchtdorf's talk was my favorite, too. How did slowing down go for you? (It hasn't really worked so far for me. I mean, it's super hard to slow down!)
