It's like my grandfather always told me: Mike, when life hands you Lemons, ask for a paternity test.

Can We Go Back?

I realized after reaching campus today that I forgot my cell phone. I thought about going back to get, but I stopped. Hadn't I lived life without a cell phone once? Is it possible to live today without one?
I decided to experiment. I won't carry my cell phone for the rest of the day (until midnight tonight). I want to see if I can handle not having it, or if carrying my phone has become an addiction. Already I feel an urge to be connected.
Oh, this is indeed a philosophical conundrum.

This YouTube video will make you cry

When I volunteered at the Utah County half Ironman last week, a guy mentioned this video from "Ukraine's Got Talent." I can't get enough of it: incredibly powerful and emotional. Plus, she's doing all this art with sand! Enjoy and leave a comment of how you like it.

De-Centralized Learning

With the advent of this new semester, I find all my classes away from the Joseph F. Smith Building. This may not seem like much to most of you, but the JFSB is the home of the College of Humanities. It is my educational home at BYU, and without classes there, I'm just a little lost.
Or I can look at this experience as a journey to discover new parts of campus. We'll see; stay tuned.
