These two are hilarious.

It's true, my brothers and dad all make fun of my for liking Jimmy Fallon but I think he's pretty entertaining and even better..genuinely nice (I know this from personal experience). And Justin Timberlake is just plain funny. I needed a little pick-me-up after this long week and saw this and loved it. And then it made me a little homesick for New York.

September 16, 2009

For years now September 11th has been a day to remember.
But this year was different from the rest.
And one year later we are still celebrating the amazing life of one of my favorite people in the world. And remembering. Remembering how lucky I am to have had such a wonderful, fun, loving uncle who took such good care of me when I was here in Utah and my family was in California. Remembering when I would pretend to fall asleep so he would carry me upstairs to put me in my top bunk-bed (and let's be honest, I was no small child), swapping new music, when he would change my guitar strings, him playing the guitar at my baptism-even though he didn't want to, random phone calls to check in on me, helping me move into my new apartment on the third floor, him getting really excited when he thought I might have a new love interest,
and a million other little things I have missed this last year.

Yep, you read that right.

Oh my heck. I'm back in Utah.

which is actually unfortunate when it comes to this blog-
it means I failed at posting my Germany and Netherlands entries in a timely manner.
or at all.
but it is also fortunate because i love fall semester.
like a lot.
i don't know if anyone loves school like i do.
although this year is much different.
i have actual grown-up decisions to make.
and i don't like that.
if you know me, you know i just don't like to decide.
i was talking to a friend
and he said two things I told him I was going to steal.
here they are:
1. "i guess this is the year to discover"
2. "let's make this year where we get rid of all our crap and make room for success!"
you might read these and think they are silly
but i don't think so.
i think they are quite brilliant.
which is why i stole them.
here's to a fall semester full of discoveries and success!
