Another Dream

While walking to the MC I had another dream; it involved:

A bakery in London
Cliffs in Ireland
A beach in Germany
A boat in Austria
And a modest home in Italy that looks a little something like this:


Weight Loss Program

For all of those interested I've found a new weight loss program! It's incredibly effective and fairly simple. 

All you have to do is set your dreams and expectations of yourself way higher then is physically attainable and before you know it you start thinking "I'm kinda hungry... not to the point of passing out though, I'll get a few more hours of homework in." 

Give it a try, let me know what you think. I've already had a few friends try it and they were amazed with the results!


Announcement! Announcement!

I have officially decided where I'm going to grad school!

I'm currently looking at two schools in California.


Because, by the time I graduate from the good ol' BYU-Potato I'll have survived way too many of these:

And I'll deserve some relaxation time at one of these: 


Vital Capacity

I learned something very exciting today! 

A vital capacity is the maximum amount of air you can expel. Here is the equation to find out your own vital capacity: 

Male: VC = 0.052H - 0.022A - 3.60
Female: VC = 0.041H - 0.018A - 2.69

(H= height in cm; A= age in years)

Mine is 3.42 liters. When we tested our lung capacity in my anatomy lab guess what mine was...

You got it! 3.4 liters! That's right, my lungs are working at maximum capacity, they can't get any more efficient  then they currently are. Pretty fantastic right? Even my professor was impressed when he saw my results. 

No big deal. 


This is My Life

After a rough day of several people asking if I was dating someone, and having no good reason for why I wasn't, (when did it become their business anyway?) I sat down and vented about one of my major frustrations with the Mormon culture. It's nothing special, but made me feel a little better. 

After months of toil, trouble, and tears
My life has direction, purpose, and grace
I feel complete
I’ve worked hard for this,
I know where I’m going; and I take delight in the path

I smile and think of the life I’ve intended,
It’s brilliant, terrific, fantastic, and grand!
I see myself living on the east and the west
School is accomplished and my career brings respite
I’m surrounded by beauty and individuals to help

I sigh in content
Yes, this is my life

I’ve forgotten, no, it’s not possible
Something so pressing, so ingrained in my mind
I’ve been taught to relish and dream of that day
When I in white and he in a tux
 promise never to part

Quickly, quickly, Throw him in somewhere!
I’m told he’ll make me whole


I’m already whole, this life I have organized
This is what I want

Someday, perhaps, I’ll find the one
That can tame my heart and calm my mind
Until that fateful day
I’ll live my life
 Magnificent and bright

 Yes, this is my life
