A week or two ago, I found myself in the eerie parking lot of the Springville Walmart, wondering how I came to that place—not the physical location of Walmart (I fully recognize that my principles are in question by shopping at a store my roommate Jana calls “the bane of our existence”—I usually try to avoid it.) but the physical, spiritual, and mental state of my life. How did I come to be here? How did I come to be the person I am today?

Winston Churchill (one of my heroes of whom I know very little about) said that “To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often.” So in my quest for perfection – I now list a few situations I found myself in during the past week, and what I’m going to change in my life because of these situations. I expect you all to hold me accountable.

1. In the Tanner Building at 11:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m., not to mention 8:00 a.m., 4:00 p.m. and every hour in between. There is something wrong when you see every custodial shift in one 24 hour period. Not cool. I vow to not be as studious. I promise to be more social.

2. Sitting in room 130 of the (you guessed it) N. Eldon Tanner building and wishing I was anywhere else. Alas. Most of the time Eldon and I get a long really well. That was a bad day. I promise to be everywhere I am. Be there 100%. Stop wishing I was somewhere else when I’m not.

3. Talking with some of my bestest friends and comparing myself up the wazoo. Talk about destructive. I promise to compare myself only with myself. My dear friend Cammie J. does that. It’s amazing. What would it be like to not ever compare yourself with others?

Finally I would just like to show in pictures a few of the situations I found myself in this past week. Man, my life is goooood.

Family Reunion (Damon & Park in town!), Roommate Reunion (at Steph & Ben’s), MPA Group (love these guys!)
