An amazing thing has been happening here in San Francisco. We've seen the sun! I wanted to share this miracle with everyone. Because warm (by warm I mean over 60 degrees), sunny days never happen here. And I'm enjoying every second of it. :-)

Home. I miss it. I miss coming in and kicking off my shoes and just relaxing. I miss being able to leave doors open and have it be warm and quiet. I miss having it be clean all the time. I miss the silence and the solitude and the serenity. I wonder if I'll ever have it back again.

Well, I'm sitting in the SLC airport waiting for my delayed flight to leave for San Francisco. Since I really don't want Christmas to be over and don't want to go back to SF (although I love the city tons!), I guess I don't really have a choice. I don't want to go back to SF because things have to be different.I need my own apartment. But by April, I should have one, so that will be good. Also, I need to have some friends in SF. Like, real friends, not people I talk to every now and then at church or a party, if there's ever a party. (I miss my friends in Virginia.) The caveat to all of this is that Braden will be there, and that's the one thing I have to look forward to in going back to SF. So, in order to change things up, here are my goals:

Financial: Set up a budget and stick to it. Save. Save. Save.
Social: Be more involved in what's going on in SF and get people together to go do stuff. I'm also going to ask different guys to go do stuff. I need some good guy friends to hang out with.
Physical: Finish Insanity, lead climb more, climb outside more, and run a couple marathons, limit junk food
Spiritual: Study the life of the Savior and his teachings
Emotional: Take some classes, read some good books, practice the piano and guitar, keep myself busy with these activities or making friends with the SF people, not give myself time to think

So, now I've made myself accountable to, well, I guess to the whole world.

And, side note, there are some SERIOUSLY hot guys here at my gate! :-)

Another prayer to the Baby Gods

Oh no, dear Baby Gods! The crying baby has stopped by our gate. No, dear Baby Gods. Please have mercy on us all - especially the poor mother of the crying baby!

A prayer to the baby gods

Please, please dear Baby Gods. PLEASE don't let the screaming baby be on our flight! PLEASE!!


Doggone it. I forgot to buy gum.


I love airports. I don't love bathroom doors that swing inward when you have luggage with you 'cause then it's really hard to get in and out of the stall. Well, more out than in, I guess. But I still love airports. Mostly because I love flying and being in an airport means I'm going somewhere cool. I also want to get my pilot's license. I hear it's very expensive. But wouldn't that be cool?! I think I need to make it happen. At least, I need to find out what it takes. In completely unrelated news, I'm discovering the wonderful, blissful joy of communication. Of resolving things. Of handling your business. The problem is, I'll let something build up and not say anything and it makes me super tired and then I finally break down and say something, and then I feel way better. And totally exhausted! Like I just want to lie down on the nasty floor I'm sitting on and sleep. When the stress starts to dissipate, I realize just how truly tired I am. Then I realize why I had such a hard time with my long run. Not that a long run is easy, anyway. But it doesn't need to be harder. So, now that I've communicated and promised to find an answer to my concern, I wonder what the response will be. Hmmm...well, I have three days to figure it out!
