So my list of places to visit this summer keeps growing.

Now Ashley and I want to go to Sicily and Greece.

And then from there I was thinking of meeting up with Emily to visit Veitnam, Singapore, and Indonesia.

And then from there I might come home. We'll see how things go.

Considering I do not have a summer job, I have no idea how this is going to be paid for. JCrew probably won't pay me enough to cover the whole trip, but might make me the well-dressed world traveler ever. (Good thing I have my priorities in line, right?) Thankfully, tutoring helps a lot, and I currently have two tutoring jobs.

I'm pretty sure this summer is my 30th birthday present to myself. No summer school. Lots of sunshine and happiness, and lots of trips. Brilliant.

so rise, and shine....

Today, I got a phone call from our stake's girl's camp director. I'm pretty sure I am going to be a leader this year. I am currently flipping back and forth between excitement and dread....


Today, we had our annual "Beyond the Books" day at school, during which we held no classes and instead had heartfelt discussions about life. It was awesome. Although it kind of freaked out our Chinese exchange students when all the sophomore girls started crying during a particularly emotional break-out session. Apparently in China, people don't talk about their feelings. They told me they would way rather be in Physics class.

At the end of the day, we showed the movie Gossip to our Senior girls. It might have jumped up to my favorite movie of all time.

remember when....

Hey, remember when I used to be an awesome blogger? Then I stopped being quite so awesome. I like to think it's because I got a life, so I no longer have to blog to make myself feel important. That may or may not be true, but it's what I tell myself.

At any rate, I recently promised a co-worker of mine that if, at some point in his life, his liver were to fail, I would be happy to share mine with him. (He is convinced I have an awesome liver. Don't ask how these conversations get started.) The next day, I stole his parking spot and reminded him that I have a greed to share my liver, so he owes me. This is awesome mostly because he can never get mad at me. Ever. (And I probably won't ever actually have to give him my liver.)

For somebody who owns so many clothes, i find it ironic that i do not own a single long-sleeved white tshirt.
