New Favorite!

So my friend Greg has fantastic taste in music and he's gotten me addicted to this guy. Jamie Cullum. One of my new favorites for sure! My favorite song so far is called Photograph. It's so great! I love the chorus. "When I look back on my ordinary, ordinary life, I see so much magic though I missed it at the time." So true! There are so many little things that happen in our lives that maybe we take for granted or that we don't see as blessings in our lives. But when we look back on it, we can learn from our experiences.

Photo Shoot!

So at our school, all the ambassadors get these fun trading cards with their picture, their contact info, and just fun facts about them. So this year, we fought hard and got them for A-Team too! We all went in to the Admissions office for a photo shoot. They spent about 10 minutes on each person. They chose the picture to put on the card and then gave us some of the rest of them! So here are a few of my favorites for your viewing pleasure. If you want to see more, they're up on my Facebook. Enjoy!

The Office

I'll keep this short. I finally gave in. I'm now an Office fan. I just finished season 2 and I'm in love. It's funny. I love Pam & Jim. The end.

Grateful for the Things I Know

Today I went to a funeral. It wasn't for a man I knew well, but for my uncle's (my mom's sister's husband) father. I haven't been to many funerals in my life, but this one was a different experience. Ya know, I'm not big on funerals, they're hard for me. Often times they just make me not want to grow up so I'll never have to deal with losing a parent, a spouse, etc. This funeral though, was a different experience for me. Like I said, I didn't really know Ray, but I did get to see my cousins that I haven't seen in YEARS! (like really, I hadn't seen my cousin Adam since my grandma's funeral... I was 11) This was also the first funeral I remember going to that was not an LDS service. The past couple of days have made me truly understand and appreciate the things that I have been taught for my entire life. I am so grateful for the plan of salvation and knowing that our families can be together forever. I love that for members of the LDS church, funerals are sad, but we know it's not the end. That was a good thing with this one, they believe that there is life after death and that they will be together again, but not in a spirit paradise or anything. I learned a lot today! It was a really great experience that's for sure! I love the Gospel and am so glad to have it in my life.
