How do we get to those other shores? To those blue hills?

I haven't been so well rested in years. In case your wondering, the video represents how finals were. But it's alright now. I have been able to rest these last couple of days.

What a semester. I learned a lot this go around. I learned that E doesn't actually equal mc^2 unless your talking about the rest energy of an object, which, if you're talking about relativity, you most likely are not. I learned that even though a person has the Y chromosome, they may still end up with a female phenotype because of a problem with sensitivity to the SRY protein. I learned that our body releases a chemical that paralyzes us during REM sleep. I also learned that things don't always go as you planned and that that's alright.

Family, it was good to see you last week. I'll see you in eight more.

My Dear Sweet Francis

Our life as dream
our time as a stream
Flows swiftly away
And the fugitive moment refuses to stay
That's what happens every week. Sorry mom, I always get a little behind in writing. I just wanted to say conference was great. I got to go to the last session on Sunday with Karen. It was a special opportunity to hear the prophet speak. One of the
things I love the most about the messages of the prophets are their simplicity. Husbands love your wives, wives love your husbands, children love your parents, and vice versa. Man love your woman, woman love your man, isn't that a Crosby, Stills, and Nash song? I guess its pretty simple. It made me feel good to see President Monson express his great love for his own wife. There's no hypocrisy, just people who are doing their best. I'm glad to know that God, our Heavenly Father just wants us to do our best.

Karen and I took these pictures. I think I look better in the one with Karen's eyes closed. Sorry Karen.
