i never had pets as a kid.
i was that weird kid in your class who, when it came time to talk about your pets, didn't have any.
i loved coloring when i was a kid. colored pencils were my favorite.
you know those little shavings that curl off of a colored pencil when you sharpen it by hand?
i used to pretend those were fish food.
and i would sprinkle them in my garbage can, which was my pseudo-fishbowl.
my parents probably liked that because imaginary pets can only make imaginary messes.
i sharpened a colored pencil by hand today and that all came back to me.
i sprinkled the shavings into my garbage can for my imaginary fish to eat.
they were happy. they hadn't eaten in a while.
-- i just got home from fish lake, which was the bomb.
-- i miss europe.
-- but i love america too.
-- arrested development.
-- i'm leaving on my mission in a month + 2 days.
-- i'm also dating a boy named sam and he is really great, which makes the previous thing a little more difficult than it was a few months ago.
life is crazy and wonderful and embarrassing and scary and hard.
pray a lot. watch this video and laugh a lot. eat m&ms a lot. watch woody allen movies a lot.
