October 27, 2012: Sincere Compliments

When you're at work and after you've been running around for the last six hours, your boss stops you just to say, "Great work. You're doing so good."

October 24, 2012: Online Classes

Generally I greet the term "online class" with bitterment and total sadness.

But in tonights case, my views of online classes was completely turned around.

That was because my online class turned my day around completely.

For our assignment, students were supposed to reply to a video I had made.
I sat on my bed listening to strangers complimenting me, and saying things like "You're doing so great!" or "You're going to go so far!"
People whom I've never met, who said these things after a three minute video, somehow knew they were the words that I needed to hear right at that exact moment.

When you can just take a walk with a good friend, headed nowhere, talking about anything and everything, life is good.

October 18, 2012: Sterotypes

Specifically the opportunity I have right now to break them. I see them constantly, and I love seeing the change in people's hearts when they realize a stereotype is not true.

October 18, 2012: Forgiving School Internet Access Systems

Lehi High School's internet access system is pretty strict. If a website has anything even resembling something like a game or any adult content or anything the school wouldn't want students to see or do, it gives you a lovely blue screen explaining that the website you are trying to open could not be accessed because it is classified as ... and then it lists, adult, games, forums, etcetera.Sometimes, though, people figure out how to sneak through that filter via google search for obscure gaming engine sites. It's sort of exciting when this happens. If you do find one, the school technicians send you a memo asking that you stay on-task and then block your internet access all together. But... For about ten minutes, it lets you play. They allow you for ten minutes of distracted enjoyment before they demand you return to your work.

I'm grateful for those sweet ten minutes of tetris.

October 17, 2012: Free Samples

That moment when you're at Costco and they have free Teriyaki chicken AND hot cookies so naturally you circle past them at least five times hoping that if you adopt a different accent they won't get as mad?
Yep, those are the best kinds of moments.

Some men can sing LOW.

October 16, 2012: Good friends

Those friends who have your back. Who come up to you when you're eating dinner and ask about your day and give you a back rub because they can see your stressed out.
And they clean up your dirty dishes for you because you have somewhere to run to.
And they let you borrow their chemistry book so you can do you homework.
And they help you with you homework when you're having a hard time doing it.
And they give you hugs.
And they make you laugh and smile.

Why go fishing, when you can fo gishing?

But talks during which you actually talk.
Those are nice.
