I'm not rude, I'm just really funny.

As most of you all know, I am generally a pretty chill, quiet, mellow, and reverent person in demeanor...but there are times at which I am a little out of control. Last Sunday was one of those days.

During Sacrament meeting there was a girl sitting in front of me that sparked a conversation on paper between myself and Michelle. It was written in my notebook that I carry with my scriptures and I read it today and it made me laugh. It's a bit rude and inconsiderate, but here it is nonetheless...don't judge me to harshly, I just like to laugh a lot.

Brett: That chick is pastey white, like freaking albino pastey.
Michelle: Some people don't fake bake. Don't hate.
B: Some people would be a fried chicken if they did, like whitey albino in front of us.
B: Are you a little sensitive about the subject?
M: I've spent the majority of my life being 65% albino.
B: True that. Double True.
M: Sunburns are overrated.
B: ...what does that even mean?
M: I have no answer.
B: I win.
M: False.
B: She is borderline see-through.
M: I can no longer come to church with you. I can't concentrate with this nonsense.
B: See ya later.
B: I'd say she's almost blue she's so see-through...her hair is even albino.

That's what I call it

I've gotten into painting lately and I've been loving it.
This is the second painting I have done in the last month, which is about 200 percent more paintings than I have done in the past 6 feels great.

It the second piece in the series of artwork I like to "The R.L.s Series."
Hope you think it's as awesome as I think it is.

You need to calm down

I decided recently that girls make no sense (again).


I was walking thru the TSC on campus, just minding my own dang business, when a girl shouted with joy and jumped up in the air several times while she held a letter she had just retrieved from the mail box over her head.  I kept walking, but I watched her and her friend closely so I could find out what was awesome enough to make this girl literally shake out of excitement and joy. Being the rational, clear-headed man that I am, I assumed the girl must have won 10,000 bucks or something equally cool like a new car or a trip to Europe. So imagine my surprise (and disgust) when I heard her say that it was a letter from a missionary...ya, it continues to blow my mind. This girl was about to have a seizure/panic attack/near death experience over one letter from a boy on a mission. I couldn't believe it and I stared at the girl in awe and wonder as I walked past. I couldn't/cannot figure out why this girl was so excited to receive a letter, it makes absolutely no sense to me.

But I guess I'm not really all that surprised by it tho since I don't understand much about the female race.
In fact, there are only a handful of things I do understand about girls:
-they cost a lot of money.
-they don't shower as often as I do.
-it's always that time of the month.
-they are fun to tease.
-they smell nice or at least they should.
-i like them.

Moral of the story:

Girls are dramatic, crazy, emotional, and irrational. I can hope that they will grow up, calm down, and become rational, but that would require me to live in a perfect/fantasy world. Instead, I'll choose to be realistic and just accept the fact that they will always be crazy and that I will always need/want them in my life.

It has to be true.

I had the opportunity to watch the Joseph Smith movie that is published by the church this past week and it was amazing. I shed two tears.

I just feel the need to declare my knowledge that Joseph Smith did indeed see God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ, and they did in reality speak to him. I know that Joseph Smith is a Prophet of God, and that he was the servant Christ used to restore His gospel and His church back to the earth. Christ lives and loves us. We can find joy, happiness, and life eternal if we but choose Him. It is up to us, we have the power to choose, to choose life or death, happiness or misery, Christ or the devil, Heaven or hell. Let us waste no more time. Let us become the people God intended us to be. Let us choose now whom we will follow, whom we will serve.

I know this is true. It must be true. It has to be true, I am living my whole life upon that precept.

un-real un-derstanding

Life has its ups and downs.
Right now might be a down,
But it might be an up.
I don't know.
I don't really want to talk about it.
The words stick in my throat,
They don't want me to let them free,
They want to suffocate me.
Yet they want to escape.
They want to breathe.
It doesn't make sense,
But what does?
Gravity? Nope.
Girls? False.
The World? Strike three.
I don't understand.
I can't understand.
I want to understand.
I need to understand.
Is that so much to ask?
Is that too unrealistic?
Yet. I will understand.
I must understand.

I need more monies

I just spent about 400 bucks this last week.
I call it an investment in my future.
Or at least that's what I make myself call it so I sleep better at night when I think about those monies I no longer have.
Those 400 precious dollars were spent applying to law schools across the country.

Consisting of [School - Location (Ranking)]:
Arizona State University - Tempe, AZ (55)
Brigham Young University - Provo, UT (41)
DePaul University - Chicago, IL (87)
University of Florida - Gainesville, FL (51)
George Mason University - Washington DC (41)
George Washington University - Washington DC (28)
Lewis & Clark College - Eugene, OR (61)
Santa Clara University - Santa Clara, CA (85)
Seton Hall University -South Orange, NJ (77)
University of Utah - Salt Lake, UT (45)

I won't know to which schools I am accepted until April/May. Now let's just use out imaginations and say that a miracle occurs (it will take a miracle) and I am accepted to all 10 of the schools to which I applied.
If that happens to be the case, then I don't really know where I should go and I need your help in deciding.
So, to which school do you propose I gain an education of law?
All ideas/thoughts/perspectives/opinions/answers/solutions are wanted/needed/hoped for/accepted.
I'm gonna love ya, I'm gonna miss ya.

Global whating?

So i keep hearing about this global warming stuff, and how the globe is getting warmer, but it looks to me like we need to find ways to keep it warmer.

Read this.

And this.

Global warming does seem to be a growing problem as the globe gets colder and colder...I think George Bush was right when he said we need to worry about the warming of the globe and how to get it warmer.
