things I need:

*to refrain from online shopping while working at the Tuacahn Box office. Really, though, the moment there's a bit of down time I'm all over eBay and Amazon. I just bid on a Cath Kidston purse (it's beautiful, and I need a new purse. I swear.) I did bring a book (two, actually) so thankfully I have the option of staying offline and reading. Reading will be my protection against overspending this summer :)

*to get more sleep. I was over an hour late to work at my dad's office this morning because I slept in, and unfortunately the excuse that I have a headache and allergies doesn't always fly. (Sorry Dad!)

*to tell all of you that I got GOOD NEWS this week about the fall. I got approved to teach a freshman-level writing class at BYU while I am grad schooling. Yes, starting this fall, I will be an instructor at Brigham Young University. Heaven help my students!

*to have a vacation. I don't know if I can wait until the Seattle trip at the end of July.

*to blog more.

*to see Little Mermaid at Tuacahn. I love working in the box office (perfect summer job) because I get FREE TICKETS! They are also doing Grease this summer, which isn't my absolute favorite musical, but I will most likely see it anyway. Can't wait for June!

*to write. I haven't writted a lot lately, so I definitely need to change that. I think there should be a time for experiencing and a time for writing, although there is never a bad time to write. I think I've been in the experiencing phase for awhile, with all sorts of unexpected, sometimes unwanted, events that take some time to process. But lately I've been getting all sorts of ideas, and I need to start recording them. Like yesterday, I flopped down on my bed and, staring at my stretched out, sleeping cat, I thought what it would be like to be a cat. That would be an interesting avenue to explore. Or why the movie Ben Hurr is my favorite movie to watch on Easter. Or what it is about chocolate that makes it irresistable (besides the caffeine, people. I'm not looking for the obvious.) Or my obsession with dying my hair (I haven't dyed my hair for awhile, but believe me, it's tempting.) Anyway, lots to think about.

And that's all for now!
