Notes From My Phone

If you want to, you’ll find a way. If you don’t want to, you’ll find an excuse.

I want a picture of the “rich young ruler” in my future home.
When you study fringe issues, make sure you are giving God equal time; i.e., keep reading the Book of Mormon.
Be very slow to judge and very quick to pray.

Be kind. Be happy and optimistic. No complaining and no gossiping.

Put in everything now. Stop looking forward to the next thing, whatever it may be.
Helaman 10:4

How to make decisions in the gray areas, especially at BYU: media, keeping the Sabbath
Visit Kylie’s classroom. And Dan’s.
Everyone has too many clothes. Wear what you have and quit buying more.

I’m grateful to live in a time and place where I can pursue and education and career. If I lived only 50 years earlier, I’m not sure if I would be studying math and pursuing a career in business. The opportunities that are before me are wonderful and overwhelming. I am so grateful to have so many choices. I am grateful to be at BYU. Not only have I grown in knowledge and experience, but I have also been able to strengthen my spirituality and testimony. I am grateful for my current job and the job I’ll start in September. My current job allows me to talk with and help people resolve their problems. I also love my coworkers! I also don’t have to worry about paying rent every month. I am especially grateful for the opportunity to move to Dallas in a couple of months to begin my full-time career.

We’re not always as great as we want to be. Do it now.

Faust: Don’t take counsel from your fears.

mendacity: tendency to lie
tetchy: bad-tempered and irritable
feckless: ineffective, incompetent, futile; having no sense of responsibility, indifferent, lazy
