Obviously we know that Blogs are meant to capture people through their thoughts....therefore you all know me as someone with no thoughts or ideas. I have decided that I am going to change that...for those that happen to read my thoughts (me and me alone probably) I hope that they will shed a light into my mysterious life....
So I was of course on Facebook and to my surprise I found this group that was committing themselves to read the Book of Mormon in 97 days in honor of President Gordon B. Hinckley and his amazing life. I would hope that anyone who is interested and willing, even if you can't read it is 97 days, would participate.
Well as we all have come to find out, dear President Gordon B. Hinckley passed away tonight. I don't usually become affected by things or I'm really good at keeping it in, but today I could not control myself. With the onslaught of sobbing I tried to look at the bigger picture. It is clear that our beloved Prophet has returned home to be with his wife and Heavenly Father. As easy as that is to type, for me and my emotions it will take a lot longer to come to terms with this development. I would like to say how important President Hinckley was in the life of so many member of the church. His service and work has benefited many. Thank you for all you did. We will miss you.
Today is Martin Luther King Jr. Day which means no school for me and since it seems to really enjoy snowing here in Utah, I am left but to do one thing and that is to watch movies. Well I just finished watching one of my all time favorites, Ever After, and it hit me...why are chick flicks so great? As a girl I can say that these tales of romance and struggle are really what all girls want but the reality is that fairy tales really aren't true. As a single girl at college and especially attending the school where there are more marriages than any other event, that I would be golden in at least the dating aspect, but not quite. This is a topic that has bugged me for a long time because...well...I think because I am so rooted in the fairy tale notions that have driven my youth. I know why girls watch chick flicks and it is because guys in real life are lame. Now don't get me wrong I have known some great guys but they always seem to be my best friends and not love interests... I guess this blog as my first really is to make guys out there aware that girls are easy to please in that all we want are fairy tales to come true for us. So if you were willing to do that, the sky's the limits.
I am a student at Brigham Young University studying to be an art teacher. This blog is my attempt to keep a journal of my life and to share it to hopefully help others. I teach piano in Salt Lake City which I love. I am culturally Brazilian although I was born in the United States. I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and I will answer any questions you might have about it because I love my faith. One of my favorite quotes goes like this: "Life's greatest treasures come from the heart. It is only with the heart one can see clearly what is essentially invisible to the eye".
