first time for everything

this is probably the FIRST tattoo i have ever looked at and then thought, "wow i would totally get that" now of course we all know i would never get one, but it got me thinking. so what would you get if you were to get a tattoo?

Lee’s hand shook as he filled the delicate cups. He drank his down in one gulp. “Don’t you see?” he cried. “The American Standard translation orders men to triumph over sin, and you can call sin ignorance. The King James translation makes a promise in ‘Thou shalt,’ meaning that men will surely triumph over sin. But the Hebrew word, the word timshel—’Thou mayest’— that gives a choice. It might be the most important word in the world. That says the way is open. That throws it right back on a man. For if ‘Thou mayest’—it is also true that ‘Thou mayest not.’ Don’t you see?”

just the facts


i took a CPR/first aid class today


i seem to laugh a lot when it is really inappropriate to do so


our instructor told us a story of a drunk girl breaking her leg and her drunk friends took her to the hospital with her leg submerged in an ice-chest, turns out she got frost bite and had to amputate that leg.


i laughed out loud, . . really loud. nobody else did.


i feel like a jackass

the absolute best.

alright *spoiler alert* this is going to get sappy

i would just like to say that i have the best parents in the world. Particularly my Dad. just this weekend i picked up a car that he was fixing for me and he went completely above and beyond. He fixed EVERYTHING. tires,the seats, the engine (seals, hoses, took it basically apart and put it back together) he even cleaned and washed it, and made an appointment for it to be re-painted. How do i live up to that? How do i fill those shoes? i have no skill whatsoever for helping him or my own family out like that. so basically this is just to let all of you know that i have an amazing father who drops everything to help me whenever i need it. i don't deserve that i know, but hopefully ill be able to pay him back sometime in someway.

LOVE you dad!!

HP6 baybay!!!

im sure if you look around you can find one with better quality, but this was the best i could do on Youtube. I highly recommend you find the high quality though, its amazing. and i a so geek-excited!

the best movie of 2009 . . .that i wont be seeing

DRAT DRAT DRAT DRAT, dadgum "R" rating!!!

gonna pull a bruce banner . . .

some pictures i have recently stumbled upon . . .

(edited for your virgin eyes, but im sure you can figure it out)

(found on a "no-on-prop8" website)

i know i said i was done being frustrated, but come on! i can't be the only one that is a little freaked out by this right? they are rallying for people to HATE us. lighting books of mormon on fire in front of churches???

ok the music in the this one is a little much, but really. . .how is this type of behavior acceptable? spray painting "no on prop 8" on a church sign? how does that help your cause? we have become the villains, the people they need to "overcome" in order to get what they want. And they will get what they want by any means necessary. that includes scare tactics, which these clearly are.

its just frustrating, sorry im done, until i find more to rant about of course. blahgrahlasgjfpodkngfadk!!!!

awesome kids from youtube

i have a fear that when i have children they are going to be as boring as i am. . .these are the kind of kids i want

i can kill you with my brain

so i woke up not being able to go back to sleep so i thought id give you all something to do today, . . . somehow obtain the series FIREFLY and then watch it. i promise you it will be the best space opera/western you will ever watch. Joss Whedon (the creator) pitched it as "nine people looking into the blackness of space and seeing nine different things".

and for your enjoyment here is a clip :)

thought for the day

its easy to see that ive been a little frustrated and a little obsessed with this whole "its the mormon's fault" thing surrounding the backlash of prop 8/102/whatever. well I've also been listening/reading/watching some talks from the most recent conference, (im specifically talking about Henry B's here )and ive come to the conclusion that i need to have a better attitude, instead of finding the negative and the things that drive us apart, i should be searching for the things we have in commmon. that does not mean i am for banning prop 8, it just means i understand where they are coming from. i'm sure it was a huge blow to the gay community and i can see why they are so upset. the hand of fellowship could do so much more in this time of moral crisis than the hand of "you are wrong and this is why". i guess i just need to figure out exactly how to extend that hand

anyway here's a inappropriate video cuz im getting too serious :)

Peaceful Protest?

. . .and i'm the hateful bigot?

tolerant and open-mided opinions shared at the LA temple

just a few clips from a protest that happened a few days ago at the L.A. temple, if you'd like to see more, youtube is full of it.

If several hundred members of the church of jesus christ of latter-day saints marched up to a meeting place for homosexual people and began shouting "shame on you" and flipping the bird (which is the least offensive thing ive seen, seriously look it up) i guarantee it would be labeled as a hate crime, or at least we'd be labeled as a hateful organization. So why is it okay that these people do this? why is tolerance one sided? i for one am tired of defending my stance on moral issues only to be looked at as some backwards redneck closed-minded bigot. this is not a civil rights issue, it is a moral issue.

Let me explain

Massachusetts a state famous for its 2003 decision to issue and allow same-sex marriage via the state's supreme court, would like you to believe that they do not discriminate against people of a different sexual orientation. this however is false. under Massachusetts state law a person engaging in "sexual activities" with relatives closer than first cousins can spend up to 20 years in jail, thats just sexual activities, they are not even trying to get married. can you imagine if we put people in jail just for engaging is homosexual activities? the country would be in an uproar screaming "equality" and "civil rights".

Civil Rights : Civil and political rights are a class of rights ensuring things such as the protection of peoples' physical integrity; procedural fairness in law; protection from discrimination based on gender, religion, race, SEXUAL ORIENTATION, etc; individual freedom of belief, speech, association, and the press; and political participation.
(got this from wikipedia)

So did you notice that fun little part that read "protection from discrimination based on . . .sexual orientation". We'll if you believe that then you must also believe that ANY OTHER sexual orientation including a incestuous relationship should be under the protection of the above mentioned civil rights. but its not, otherwise there could not be a law against it. so why does the state of massachusetts have a law in their (oh so open minded) state that sends people with a different sexual orientation other than the "norm" to jail? because the people of that state deem that sexual act MORALLY wrong. The only reason same-sex relationships and marriages are claiming civil rights is because enough people in their respective states and in this country have deemed homosexuality (at the least) morally okay, or (at the most) morally correct.

homosexuality (from practice to marriage) is a moral issue. not one dealing with civil rights.

Please please please do not misunderstand me, i do not intend to imply that homosexuals should be sent to prison, nor that they should be looked down upon with disdain or malice. They are literally our family, our brothers and sisters, those we as members of the church of jesus christ of latter-day saints have promised to love and comfort. We are all equally important to our father in heaven regardless of our flaws (which we all have). i honestly do not view myself as any better than one person or another. We should all strive to be as the savior, teaching with love and kindness, and most importantly being examples of the meaning of the gospel and its plan, happiness (and hating or belittling others does not bring happiness)

My only intent is to express my distaste for those who would yell and rage at me because i, as a member of the church of jesus christ of latter day saints, have taken away their "civil rights". i do not believe that this is the case, and although you have the right to your opinion, you do not have the right to scream hurtful and terrible accusations at a place of worship. you do not have the right to deface that same place of worship (some protesters wrote things like "mormon pigs" on the walls they were lined up against). and you most certainly do not have the right to claim that you are the only tolerant and open minded people in this country, that all other opinions other than your own are stupid and uneducated.

i honestly hope i have not offended anyone with this little rant, its just something that has been weighing on me for a little while and i figured getting it off my chest and writing it down might help clear my thoughts and maybe crystallize them a bit

holy crap its five in the morning :(
