Stress Reliever

If you are ever feeling bad for yourself or how bad things are going for you, watch this.


No, not as in "da bomb". I just took my first final of the semester and I'm pretty sure I bombed it. Oh well. As long as I get a C- or above I guess I'm ok. Hopefully the next 3 tests go a lot better.

Mark took his first final at the same time I was in mine, and he feels pretty good about his final. He's currently taking another one, and has 2 more through the rest of the week. Please pray that we don't die!

In Honor of My Dad

I ate a Panda Express fortune cookie today, and here is the "fortune":

"If you can befriend yourself, you'll never be lonely"

As many of you know, Mark and I have a game addiction. That's pretty much what we do in all of our spare time. Anyway, this picture is taken from the box of a game called "Thurn and Taxis" (a way awesome game, my current favorite actually).

Isn't she happy? Right now she's the background on the main screen of my cell phone.

Recently we joked about making a brochure listing all of the games we own (that we wouldn't mind playing) with an explanation of each game, how long it takes, how hard it is and the bonus of our personal rating. I'd probably do it, but I'm not sure that anyone would use it. Mainly we'd tell people to look at it before we played games with them so they'd know which ones they wanted to try out. What do you think? Is it worth my time?

Last night I dreamed that we went back to Argentina, but this time one of my girl friends came with us. (Sorry girls, I can't remember who it was so just assume it was you.) Anyway, we arrived in Argentina and I was talking with the friend I made there and telling the friend I brought how good the food was. I guess I really miss those people and the food I ate while I was there. This hasn't been the only time I dreamed about them and the food. Sigh. And it probably doesn't help that my sister just got back from Cancun and my parents are in Hawaii. That just makes me want to go back to Argentina even more. I suppose I need more friends here so I can dream about having fun here, too.

Poster Project

I just spent the last 3 days of my life worried sick about the poster I have to present in my Statistical Bioinformatics class on Wednesday. It was due online today, so I had to finish it, but the class won't see it until then. When I took in my rough draft to my teacher to talk about what needed to be fixed, I didn't hear a single positive comment and pretty much had to either modify a lot of it or start over. I've been sitting at the computer for 2 hours since then and I finally have it finished.

Mark at Conference

Most of you know that Mark sang in the priesthood session of general conference this year. Here is a clip of an amazing song where he gets his 10 seconds of fame, which come toward the end. Sorry if there are volume problems; the copy we were given came with very low volume so I don't know how I can fix it. The song is called "Know This, That Every Man is Free" (I think) and it has absolutely wonderful lyrics.

New Favorite

This week I bought my first ever "girl" hoodie. It's the kind that doesn't sag around the belly and basically just makes me feel skinnier. It came in the mail just yesterday afternoon from That website is pretty cool because they just sell random things at discounted prices, but the items change every half hour or so. Here it is!

What do you think?
