especially for youth 2013

Happy Mail Order Catalogue Day!

For those of you who are unaware, EFY is da bomb diggity.

Actually though, it is one of the best experiences you could have. Yes, it may cost a lot, and yes, you can have fun & spiritual experiences without it, but there is something special when you are surrounded by hundreds, even thousands of youth who share your standards. I personally love how quickly and surely friendships are made during EFY. You show up without a clue as to who you are going to meet, and then out of necessity they become your best friend. It is in a way prep for college life, where you are thrown into unfamiliar situations with unfamiliar people.

Scary, but fun.

Kinda like Shark Week.
That's for you, Gavin!

And here are some high-quality pictures courtesy of mi telefono:

I would add more pictures, but honestly, these are the best of em. Camera quality makes a difference, ya know?

is that butter

Happy National Thriftshop Day!

"One of God's greatest gifts to us is the joy of trying again, for no failure ever need be final." - President Thomas S. Monson

Truth be told, failure isn't a thing. It can only exist through lack, as in a lack of success, and that is only determined when you stop trying. You will succeed at everything you do, so long as you work at it and believe in it for years, centuries, a millennia. It is similar to darkness. Darkness is not a tangible thing, there is no essence to it. Light, on the other hand, has a power, it can fill that empty space and become something.

You can never "fail". You simply learn a different lesson, become greater at something other than what you had originally anticipated.

And that is deep ish.
