Thoughts at Midnight.

The inability to fall asleep before midnight is really annoying.

I read somewhere that the average person falls asleep withing 7 minutes. I think I'd pay a great deal of money to somehow fall asleep that quickly without resorting to drugs.

I really do like sleep. Really. I do. I just have severe difficulties falling into it.

Over The Rainbow is now stuck in my head for whatever random reason.

I did something brave today. I am proud of myself. You know that quote 'All you need is 20 seconds of insane courage and I promise you something great will come of it' from We Bought A Zoo. Yeah, that was me today. Nope, you don't get to know.

I really want to fall asleep.

I am grateful to have the internet back in my life. It really is a wonderful thing.

But still, I want to fall asleep.

Here I shall tantalize your eyes with a few of the sights I have seen over the last few weeks.


So...yeah. It's Fall. And it's pretty.

Unfortunately, I do not like the thing that comes AFTER Fall. Especially where this awful cold white stuff falls is rather unfortunate frequency and then melts a little but not all the way and then becomes ice which is even more of a non-liked thing when it's not being put into a drink or being skated on after being flattened by oh so cool Zamboni's. But I digress.

It's Fall. The leaves are falling and twirling around in lovely dances with the wind. And I like it.

182nd Semi-Annual Conference

Told ya I was going to be posting. And with PICTURES!

So, if you are friends on Facebook with me, you would know that I was a little obsessed with conference this weekend. Cause I went to the Saturday sessions. The above picture was my view of the first session. And....

This was my view of the second session. We had tickets for both. Well actually, I got tickets for the afternoon, and our friends had two extra tickets for the morning session. So it worked out rather nicely to stay for the whole day! :)

It was AMAZING as usual. Extra amazing cause we were there for the announcement of the change in age requirements for outgoing missionaries. I find it an enormous benefit as all singles wards will soon be bereft of 18 year old guys. All guys in singles wards will now (potentially) be fair game. Not that I am going for an 18 year old, or a 20 year old, but still, now there will be less wondering whether the guy is fair game or not for all the lovely young ladies in the wards.

Super excited for Tucson. Regardless of where my college loyalties lie, it is way awesome that Arizona will have 6 temples! I am calling the next one for Flagstaff. It would make sense to me to put one there. But I am no prophet...or prophetess.

LOVED the talks. So many amazing ones. Saturday was my favorite overall, but Sunday afternoon was rather awesome. Elder Holland was of course incredible. And I need to take Elder Bednar's talk with a glass of hot cocoa and really read it. Same for Elder Hale's I think. Did you notice he was standing for his talk? So glad to see he is doing so much better. He looked a great deal like his old self than he had, but he was still obviously frail.

So what did you like about it?
