On a note totally unrelated to moving or finals:

I just saw a commercial advertising a smart phone that can find your car for you. I found out a different smart phone can also do this for ITSELF. At first- I was sold. I lose my phone and my car ALL the time, and pretty soon, they'll have some button I can dial from my pocket and I'm sure I'd be able to find my keys too. Or, the smart phones will just turn INTO keys. Or a car. Who knows?

But then I got really angry. Because why should I press a button and have everything given to me? Why can't I work a little bit harder and just find my car on my own? The fresh air is good for me! And seriously, I have had so many powerful and faith-building experiences associated with prayer and finding my phone and my keys- I wouldn't replace those for anything.

Further, I'll tell you what I don't need more of: Facebook. Or Google telling me what to do. There, I said it.

Am I diminishing personal value here because there' s noway I can fathom affording a smart phone?

But seriously, folks...
Sometimes, I just need to call people.


  1. Completely agree. It scares me to see how advanced we are getting. Soon nothing will be personable at all. Ill stay right where Im at thank you. Very well said. :)

  2. like you need to call me...when you move. phone dates. like i'll go to jb's and you can go to the utah equivalent of jb's and we'll sit in our booths by ourselves but on the phone with each other.

  3. I agree that you need to call me.


I like to hear all of the beautiful things you have to say.
