Philosphy and Religion

Many of my family will remember me stewing about a philosophy paper that I chose to write on the Plan of Salvation. I thoroughly annoyed everyone around me for a few days as I continually steered the conversation toward this topic, asking deep philosophical questions about the nature of God and premortal existence and yadda yadda yadda...

Anyway, the family was very helpful and sweet about it, and I finally got the paper done and turned in. Yesterday I got it back. My teacher gave it a 97 out of 100, and had written on it, "MOST EXCELLENT WORK!!!" and "THIS PAPER IS TRULY AWESOME!!!" He also told me that it was among the top 5 papers he had ever recieved from a philosophy student. I put a lot or thought and energy into this paper in a very short amount of time and I must say I was thrilled to hear that. I mean, the paper wasn't exceptional as far as papers go, I just think that maybe the truth makes sense and perhaps he felt that a little bit. Who knows? Anyway, it was a good experience and I learned a lot. I thought I'd share and say thank you for all of the help!

David and Janel

I lived with Janel and Dave for a few months once. At first I thought Janel was pretty nice, but David changed all of that when he told me that Janel is actually a highly abusive wife and that he lives in constant fear of her. I came to know that David is decidedly the victim of the relationship. His evidence is compelling. He mostly shakes his head and says, "You guys don't know what Janel is REALLY like. She's mean, I tell you! She's not like this when we're alone. You guys just don't know." Now I know that the selfless service, cute giggles, patience, and delicious cooking are all just a cover to hide Janel's black, black heart. Don't worry, Dave, I've got her number.

This brings back fuzzy memories of a house full of people I love. December 2006.

This video is from December 2005. I thought that Julia would like it. Hailey and Beth were doing this for about half an hour before I started recording it. Her cheeks were thoroughly moisturized.

Warner Reunion

Here are a few of the pictures I took at the reunion in 2006. I didn't take very many, though. I thought it was about time I posted them.
Two handsome boys.

Half of what I say is meaningless but I say it just to reach you, Julia.

They love one another.

Blurry, beautiful cousin.

We are actors all.

You Guys are Haters.

Why don't you like me anymore? Would you still love me if I used my blog?
