What's this? A career?

I've got it figure out. An actor! that's what I'll do with my life! It's perfect. I love dressing up (as I'm sure you've noticed). I absolutely love movies and plays. At least good ones. And I'm fairly decent at doing different voices. Believe it or not, I can also be really serious. Plus with acting I can stay super focused, at least with my theater career so far that's been the case. Don't really get stage fright either! Not to mention that I really enjoy performing. And I'd have way too much fun if I ever got famous. But the problem with acting is that unless you make it fairly big, it's not a very steady or well paying career. Though I like to get risky sometimes, I'm definitely a fan of stability! Especially if I ever end up having a family. I'm not entirely sure yet if I'm that passionate about acting, I've really enjoyed my experiences so far, just not entirely sure yet if I'd actually want to risk it all and attempt a career at acting. Good thing I'm taking an acting class this next semester! Hopefully that will help me figure things out.

"And it came to pass that as my father arose in the morning, and went forth to the tent door, to his great astonishment he beheld upon the ground a round ball of curious workmanship; and it was of brass. And within the ball were two spindles; and the one pointed the way whither we should go into the wilderness." Nephi 16:10

I've always wondered how the Liahona found itself outside Lehi's tent. Maybe it was teleported there, just sort of appeared. Or maybe God dropped it, like you would a marble onto a sandy beach. Or maybe it was delivered by a dark rider under cover of the night. One with a fantastic head dress or turbin, riding a trusty camel. I bet he just snuck right up on their camp and left it by the tent door. Of course he would have tried to ring the doorbell and run away, (like you'd do with a plate of cookies) but doorbells hadn't been invented yet, so he just figured to leave it there. And in the morning when they found the Liahona, if they would have looked up at the ridge in the distance, they'd have seen the dark rider peering back, watching, to make sure his entrusted package was discovered. The golden sun glimmering up behind him, barely peaking over the ridge, trying to catch a glimpse of this curious workmanship for itself. Yeah, that's what I'd like to think.

Things On Me Mind

    Tis been quite the while since I've really written anything on here. And in honesty, I haven't felt like writing at all. But I'm going to now take some time and just talk about a few things on my mind/whats been going on in my life.

   College: college is really not all that hard or terrifying as everyone wants to make it out to be. You just have to get into the swing of things and then it isn't too bad. Unless you have lots of tests and homework due around the same time, that tends to get a bit stressful. The secrets to college life are simply: 1. Have a well organized schedule, balance out school, work, and friends, so you don't go crazy. 2. Find professors you like, cause that really does make or break the class. 3. Don't procrastinate! So far this year, I've gotten almost all of my homework done the week before it is due, which is not always easy, but keeps the stress and frustration levels at non-existant.

    Voting: It was far over rated. To be honest, I don't know if I'll ever vote again. Just because it's pretty much a joke. Stand around in line for potentially an hour or so to check a few boxes on a screen and leave. My biggest qualm with voting though is the Electoral College. There are no laws that say the electoral representative has to vote the way the people did. And in history it has happened where they haven't. But I live in Utah, so no matter what I vote, the state is always going to go Republican. It always has. That's why I think it's a joke. Plus politics turn me off quicker than a light bulb in ice water. I have zero interest or desire to be involved with them in any manner.

    Now for the juicy stuff. Romance: Just as I figured, romance is better after highschool because the principle of "nice guys always finish last" isn't really so applicable. People are more mature and seem to know more of what they're looking for. At least from my observances. Since graduating, I've dated two ladies...both older than me. Neither of the relationships lasted all that long, but those are stories for another day. I don't regret either of them and I learned a lot from the experiences. Well that wasn't as juicy as I thought it would be, so my apologies.

    Time: I always figured adults were just being silly when they talked about time flying. "Before you know it, you'll be all grown up and have kids of your own" and all that jazz. But gosh! Ever since my last semester of Highschool started, life started moving at an exponential rate! It's really terrifying how fast the time really does go by. I'm terrified to go to sleep now, cause the next time I wake up, I could be 80 years old! (okay I'm not really that terrified) I'm down to forty minute days now though. Meaning my days feel about forty minutes long. Not during the day while it's happening, but at the end of every day, it feels like the entire day only lasted that long. Guess them old folks really do know what they're talking about! 

    Anyways, those are a few of the main things that have been floating around my brain and life lately. Also, this winter has already been super's going to be a long one. Though to a degree I kind of like being depressed. I like the raw emotion of it. Hopefully I'll be in more of a writing mood in days to come, cause I have quite a few interesting tales to tell, but we shall have to see.
