a letter & a letter

(practicing taking blood pressure manually)

oh, hey. guess what i did today..

I PASSED STATE TESTING. i am now a CERTIFIED Nursing Assistant - a CNA. 

i am so excited! dream summer job, here i come.

cherry on top of the summer job cupcake: a letter from chris!

some pictures of his week:

 You were probably expecting something prettier, right? 

In his own words, "It has been a good week, but a painful one."

Tuesday he ran into a parked car. Totalled his bike. On Thursday he got into yet another bike accident (I think he borrowed a bike after wrecking his) in which he scraped up his face, ruined his new pants and got himself lots of bruises. And then , on Saturday, Chris & his companion were forced to walk home because Chris got a flat (...), and some lovely people driving past him (at 45 miles per hour, i may add) threw a slushy at him. That's right. Elder Stott got slushied. (Have you ever seen The Glee Project?) He says it was extremely painful and he now has a bruise on his stomach shaped like a cup.

things that could only happen to Elder Stott.

On the bright side, he went treasure hunting this week!

if my heart could sing

how i love this song.

"specks", by matt pond PA.

it has inspired me today, and i just couldn't keep that all to myself.

have a beautiful day!

whilst doing homework.

oh, this is a quite a lovely excerpt..

it's from a book written in the 1800's titled Advice on Choosing a Wife..


(i highlighted my favorite parts, for your convenience.)

[Quality #] 5. Love of Domestic Concerns.

Without the knowledge and the love of domestic concerns, even the wife of a peer, is but a poor affair… I am, however, addressing myself, in this work, to persons in the middle ranks of life; and here a knowledge of domestic affairs is so necessary in every wife, that the lover ought to have it continually in his eye. Not only a knowledge of these affairs—not only to know how things ought to be donebut how to do themnot only to know what ingredients ought to be put into a pie or a pudding, but to be able to make the pie or the pudding… If a young farmer or mechanic marry a girl, who has been brought up only to ‘play music;’ to draw, to singto waste paper, pen and ink in writing long and half romantic letters, and to see shows, and plays, and read novels—if a young man do marry such an unfortunate young creature, let him bear the consequences with temper… It is cold comfort for a hungry man, to tell him how delightfully his wife plays and sings. Lovers may live on very aerial diet, but husbands stand in need of something more solid; and young women may take my word for it, that a constantly clean table, well cooked victuals, a house in order, and a cheerful fire will do more towards preserving a husband’s heart, than all the ‘accomplishments’ taught in all the ‘establishments’ in the world without them.
