The Lizzie Bennet Diaries

Over the past few months, Camille and I have become addicted to a Youtube series called The Lizzie Bennet Diaries. It's essentially Pride and Prejudice but adapted to fit the modern day. I really enjoyed how it helps make characters' reactions to some of the events a little more understandable because of the way it's applied to things we'd react to in a similar way. The acting is well-done, the plot moves quickly and is kept interesting, and overall the show is uniquely entertaining.
Camille really really wanted to see Darcy and Lizzie finally admit they were in love before she left for her mission. She knew the whole series wouldn't be out until a couple of weeks after she was already gone, so she was just really hoping that would at least happen before. And it did! Here is the email she sent me after she watched the video:
"watch new lizzie bennet now best day ever life complete too happy for correct grammar and punctuation"

Here's the video:

Watch The Lizzie Bennet Diaries. They're amazing. :)

Cure to Hipster

Here's another video Camille shared with me before she left. They took it off of YouTube for copyright issues though and they might again so watch it asap!! It's pretty hilarious. I think it might swear though and if it does, I apologize. I can't really watch it right now because I am at work.

I saved all of the videos she emailed me in my inbox so I could share them on my blog. I'm trying to clean out my inbox, so you just get lots of random videos lately!

February Moab Trip....

Once upon a February,
I went to Moab with some friendsies and we ended up getting stranded there because of a snowstorm. Fun times. And I forgot to post or write about it. So here are some pictures taken on Stephanie and Sam's camera of our adventures.
We found an ice waterfall and ice pond. Beautiful, right?
Stephanie and me chillin on some sandstone.
Jairen performing ice ballet?
Steven got stuck up there. Crazy kid.

Giant sand dune.
Cute Steph and Sam.

And that was our adventure in pictures.
Yayy. The end.

Saying goodbye.

I know this was like two months ago, but I want to post these pictures from when we dropped Camille off at the MTC. I miss that girl! She's in Sweden now and we got to talk to her on the phone before she left the U.S. and then again on Skype for Mother's Day. It was so nice to hear from her and actually get to talk to her but I think it made us all miss her even more.

All the girls.
Such a cute missionary.

Just Relax.

"Although many of us can’t increase the working hours in the day, we can measurably increase our energy."

Several, several months ago, one of my Facebook friends posted this article about relaxation and productivity. I would really recommend reading it! Over the past few months I've learned that making time for myself to relax is ridiculously important. I'm still working on it, but when I'm less stressed and focusing on fewer things rather than a billion, I feel better about life and I do a lot better at the things I am focusing on. I also end up enjoying what I have to do more than if I was all stressed out about it. So I took fewer credits this past semester and I'm only taking one class this term, I really do enjoy school so much more when I can relax and focus!

The worst commercial ever.

Oh the gems Camille introduces me to.
