you know what i think?

I think that sometimes people do things just so they can post about it on social media sites. The more I hear people talk about Mobile Uploads, Profile Pictures, and a witty status they can post about an event, the more I'm just like "sttttttttooooopppppp it". Now don't get me wrong, I am definitely guilty of all of these crimes, but hey - a woman can change. I am tired of people just complaining, bragging, and just posting unnecessary things all over the Internet.

Wanna know something ironic? I just spewed all of these random thoughts all over my own personalized social media sphere.

no coincidences

Today, before walking to the Library, a few friends and I stopped to look through the Sustainability Bin that was in our Res Hall Lobby. In this bin students can give away things they don't want anymore: books, clothes, lamps, etc. While we were looking through said-bin, Kendall had already found two top hats and a pair of boots, when suddenly I spotted a pair of turquoise Converse sneakers. I was excited to have found this treasure, but wasn't sure if they would fit my size 8 feet. With some encouragement from Kendall and Kendrick, I tried on the shoes - and they fit! I was stoked.  Instead of running them up to my room, I put them in my backpack and left for the Library.

Fast-forward to around 3 p.m. this afternoon. I had just come home from a meeting in the Campus Center and was now sitting on my bed, watching an episode of The Office. --Cue the pouring rain-- I am not kidding when I say that I thought Noah's Ark Pt. 2 was going down outside. It was insane. And I was heading to work in 5 mins. With my backpack packed and my raincoat on, I ventured out into the torrential downpour. I NEVER KNEW SO MUCH WATER EXISTED. I was soaking wet from the top of my head to my shoes - in fact, at one point both of my shoes were underwater in a puddle. So I get to the Music Library and throw off my backpack, only to realize that I had that extra pair of shoes in my backpack! I didn't have to wear soggy shoes and socks for four and half hours!

Long story short: Heavenly Father always provides us with what we need, when we need it. Coincidences do not exist, but our Savior does! That is the greatest piece of knowledge that I know to be true. It's about 23049820948208394 times greater than any paper I must finish by tomorrow at 4:30 p.m.

spring memories

I don't really have time to write a super long post - but apparently I have time to write a short one?

I think that I will start with the present and go into the past as far as story-telling goes:

1. Today - We will celebrate three birthdays! Tyler Clites', Kyle Duke's, and MINE

2. It's Finals Week - Boo. Fourteen pages left.

3. Tupelos Indian Food Dinner @ Anisha's House - it was the last time singing with this year's seniors!

4. Tupelos Clam Bake (Will expand upon this day in a later post)

5. Tupelos go to Mormon Church! What a cool experience -- I was able to conduct the music in Sacrament Meeting in the Cape Cod Branch

6. Professor Greer brought a cake to the last day of HIST 252: The Modern Black Freedom Struggle - one of my favorite classes at Wellesley

I'm kind of tired of listing, so I will just let everyone know that work starts on June 4th and I could not be more excited! Before that I will attend a Women's College Leadership Conference in Washington D.C., that I know will be an incredible experience.

Here's to an awesome, fun, thrilling summer!
