Labor day presents - they're gonna be big

I finally bought the one thing I've been wanting that Optimistic. refused to buy for me as a Labor Day present. His argument was that there are no such things as Labor Day presents. My argument was that there is a huge present-less void in my life between my birthday in March and Christmas in December. So I bought myself this awesome receiver, which has a handy pick-up/hang-up button and volume control built into it. Plus it will be amazing to have a nice curly phone line coming out of my purse seemingly attached to nothing. Despite the picture I got it in black - red is just a little too conspicuous and would clash with my hair.

-I Am Lawyer
-Lawyers of the Fall
-The Lawyer of Zorro
-Urban Lawyer
-The Lawyer of Zelda
-Sinbad: Lawyer of the Seven Seas
-The Lawyer of Bagger Vance
-The Lawyer of Sleepy Hollow

Can robots pee? These are the questions we need answers to!

While using Garage Band I tried adding some Robotic Tambourine just to spice things up. As you can see, I only had a short clip so the program shortened it to "Robo Urine", which I find immensely funny.

Quick update. I am in school and I have a job.

School: I am taking the last of my GE classes this semester, which means I have Pearl of Great Price, New Testament, and Art History to get through and then I am done with GE's for forever. I am also taking TMA 291- film history, and TMA 241 -beginning screenwriting. Screenwriting takes up a lot of my time, but I think it will be worth it. Basically I am now tired all of the time - for realsie7.

My new job: I am a video editor for the BYU Chinese Flagship Center. I'm still learning how to do my job, but I have hope that someday I will actually learn how to do everything I'm supposed to know how to do. Most importantly it's a job that's specific to my major, has flexible hours, and pays well. Plus the office I use is called the dragon office, which sounds mysterious. But really it's because half of it is filled with an honest to goodness Chinese dragon, like the kind you'd see in a parade.

Church stuffs: I had my first enrichment activity where we did freezer paper stencils. A lot of people came which was nice but also kind of hectic, because I couldn't police everyone and some people got ahead of me before I could keep them from doing things wrong. But everyone had a good time and things turned out well.

Also, I had to give a talk about fellowshipping on Sunday, but it went very well if I do say so myself. I focused on how to actually create friendships within a married student ward (which can be tricky) and I threw in some stories here and there to highlight my points. A lot of people said they enjoyed it, so I feel pretty relieved knowing I did a good job and that I won't have to speak again for a while.

So, I've been really busy and it looks like it's going to stay that way all semester. Except I have extracurricular stuff that needs planning, like hobo fest, and the second curtain rod that needs to go up in the living room, and all the dishes that accumulate every day when I'm not looking.
