I am pleased to announce to the internet void, that my life is far better in reality than in my dreams. Holy happiness! I feel as though this deserves a Hallelujah Chorus serenade or something of the sorts. While you are probably wondering as to what we can thank for this magnificent announcement, here it goes....

I have the weirdest dreams imaginable. No, I am not talking about dreams as in aspirations, I am talking about dreams as in sleepy time action. I have never learned about dream interpretations and such, so please let me know if there is anything imperative my dreams are trying to tell me.... Not a night goes by where I do not encounter some sort of 'bad-guy' who proceeds to do what 'bad-guys' do best, (murder, kidnap, punch, stab, etc). Although this is unpleasant during the night, I wake up ecstatic that my real life is far better than my dreams. That is such a happy thing. It makes me happy for each opportunity to start another day in my wonderful life. Midterms or no midterms, I'll take it!

My mind was completely consumed with thoughts of this nature during tonight's run. For over an hour up and down the hills of Rexburg all I could think about was how grateful I am to be living my life. I find this completely hilarious, since it has not been the happiest day, to say the least. I am grateful to be a naturally happy person, so I especially respect the people that have to work harder at being happy, you are much stronger than I am. My life is messy, happy, frustrating, habitual, disgruntled, entertaining, nearly impossible....but perfect all at the same time. I wouldn't give up this experience for anything.

Yes, you have probably concluded this posting is dumb, verging on psychotic. Most likely you are correct. Either way though, I hope we can all be grateful for each new day. I am not saying you have to leap out of bed with a perma-smile never feeling grouchy, but I am saying that perhaps realizing the immense love that God has for us to give us another day on this beautiful planet to live, learn, love, and grow will make us more apt to feeling good. Let's all feel good, do good, and be good.

Life is lovely. I really do not have any thoughts to share, besides the fact I hope we never let a day go by where we forget to love our lovely lives. There are so many blessings, opportunities, and wonders surrounding us I feel as though we may as well be happy. :)


This little portion is random, but those that know me tend to know of my sincere love for Sylvester Stallone. If you were unaware prior to reading this, he is the most attractive man ever. Hands. Down.
This weekend we had a 'Rocky' marathon. Needless to say, I was quite ecstatic about the whole situation. Dear Sylvester graced us with his face for an extended period of was magnificent! While this post is quite inconsequential, I hope you enjoy gazing upon the Italian Stallion. :) I love all of the Rocky movies and the fact that they don't get progressively more lame like the majority of fact I would argue that they get better and better.

My favorite part of each Rocky:

Rocky I: Sylvester's real claim to fame; Wifey Adrian is adorably awkward (as is he).

Rocky II: Apollo Creed; Baby Rocky; Heavyweight Champ! Word.

Rocky III: Clubber Lang (Mr. T); Thunderlips (Hulk Hogan); Eye of the Tiger; the whole David/Goliath triumph phenomenon

Rocky IV: Rocky + facial hair ( <3 ); Robert Jr is adorable; the Soviet Union; Ivan Drago; the outdoors! Rocky V: Tommy Gun; Rocky's return to good fatherhood; street fighting (need I say more?) Rocky Balboa: He's still got it, folks! :)
