My current life; 6/20

An update on my life. Stimulating, I know.

From June 10th to the 12th, I was in New York...
...attending a Bible conference for young single adults;
...bumping into my visiting teacher from BYU;
...living in an apartment for two nights belonging to a family who I never met before, but were extremely hospitable and generous to me;
...watching half of "She's All That" and "True Grit";
...perfecting my skills in riding/figuring out subway;
It's confusing, but doable. (What a weird-looking word...doable, doable...)
...and listening to the testimonies of L. Tom Perry, Quentin L. Cook, and Senator Harry Reid.

On June 14th, I wrote a song with my guitar teacher about shooting a cow. Lyrics will change. Eventually.

On June 18th, I was...
...in Flushing, Queens getting a hair cut;
Before: pixel-y and confused.
After: short hair and confused.
...attending a wedding reception, where there was a square dance, and where I realized that I like the banjo--meaning, I will probably end up playing it by the end of this summer. (But, dilemma...this summer, should I perfect the trumpet or take up the banjo? I can do one or the other, but I can't decide what I want to do more...help me decide!)

Today, I will partake of my first chili cheese dog, which, according to friends, is "quite the experience." Wish me luck as I embark on this new adventure.

And from June 12th till now: I've been hanging out with my sisters and my niece, who calls me Eddy (and dubbed my laptop "Elmo," since we frequently watch "Elmo's World" on it). Today, she added two new words to her vocabulary: "Come" and "What?" I'm probably more enthralled than you are, but if for the last couple days you've been hearing "No way! No way No way!" from a tiny little toddler, you'd find new words are exciting too.

And here's a song to end this post:

Have a wonderful week, my beautiful friends.
