Boring Complaints

This is one of those times where I have a bunch of stuff to do, and it feels like it might not ever get done, but I know if I sit down and start it will. So I met with a counselor in the CCC who's working on some research with the intake questionnaires, and he was telling me how disorganized everything is, and how corrupt everything is. Anyways, he gave me bunch of ideas of research to do with the database, along with this huge binder of articles to read for my background. Yipee! It sounds like if I really put my mind to this I could get my thesis done this semester... although I must admit, my procrastination skills are only improving with my partying skills.

Now what you've been waiting for: cool insights from my life. Well, these are insights from other people, so I guess they're my exsights. So, according to the third article of faith, to be saved we need to obey the principles and ordinances of the gospel. Assuming that saved here means exalted, in order to grow into an exalted state (read: learn), all we need to do is obey the principles and ordinances of the gospel. This means that... learning is an ordinance of the gospel. Possibly.

I've been listening to the CD I talked Optimistic. into making for me. It's pretty much awesome (especially after I downloaded the codec that let me play it). I'm still getting a feel for it - there are of course some weird/cool songs (at least on first listen). So I'm thinking of taking an internet diet, so don't worry if I'm absent. Not that you would, I'm inflating the importance of my blog presence once again.

An internet diet?! Hopefully, like most diets, this will end within a week.

Internet diet? Like e-diets dot com? We are learning the 8th A of F in RS, I think, for the Practice Hymn. In Primary--the kids are only on the 4th song. I think we are way behind. WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY behind......
