Week 8, Day 4

Tired. That’s what I am today. I fell asleep in both of my classes today. I guess my body is trying to tell me that 1:30 bedtime is not good! I got 8 hours of sleep but it wasn’t the usual 8 hours, so I think that’s what got me. I will be honest, I had a lot of free time today and I totally squandered it. I don’t even know what I did with it either! I did clean up my room, that was much needed, but other than that I don’t know what I did while I did nothing productive. After I got home from class at 6, I got down to work. I made my rough draft for my Visual Media project. It didn’t look too bad for just one hour of work! I went and did the critique with a girl from my class. We met in the Spori and talked over the projects. It went well but I always feel like my work looks plain compared to hers. She always has cute spunky fun ideas for her projects and I am envious of her creativity. After the critiques, Mitchell and I worked on homework in the lounge at his complex. I got a few things done and started my cover pages collage thing for Interpersonal. They are the cover pages for the portfolio we will compile at the end of the semester. I went home at 12 and continued working on my pages. I stayed up until 2 working on one page! I’m hoping I will be able to finish them tomorrow morning so I can print and laminate them in time for class… Wish me luck!

Week 6, Day 7

Music speaks for the soul

Music speaks for the soul

Sunday has been a great relaxing day. I went to church and we talked about seeing miracles happen in our lives and also talked about the importance of visiting teaching. I know I haven’t been the best with visiting teaching but I want to be this semester! When I got home, I listened to LDS hymns and other uplifting music. I did this while folding laundry and doing little things around the apartment. It was really peaceful. It’s amazing what music can do for you. The right kind of music can totally calm your nerves and slow down your day. That’s what Sunday was. I felt like I was closer to God throughout the day and I kept my focus on the Savior more as I listened to uplifting, spirtually based music. Usually my normal jam is EDM, Indie dance, or Classic Rock. Sunday would have been a lot different if I had been listening to those genres. I love music. I don’t know who doesn’t, but it definitely has power and I’m glad I could use that to my advantage on Sunday
