Invisible Children

Hey everyone,

If you're reading this, please keep doing so and consider what I'm gonna tell you carefully.

This (clicky) talks about something that people seem very unaware of, but it's something that's real and is happening right now. The organization that provided you with that info is holding an event called The Rescue in 100 cities involving thousands of people. It is gonna be BIG and there is one happening in Salt Lake. I have already made up my mind and I am gonna be there.

Now, if you didn't wanna read a lot, here is the event summarized: tons of people show up at the Olympic torch in Rice-Eccles stadium then they will all march down to the Gallivan Center in downtown Salt Lake and spend the night there until they get the attention of both the media and an important person (senator, governor, whatever). If the group fails to do both, the group is committing themselves to staying there until they get the attention they want.

If by now you're thinking you wanna do this, here's a video that describes that last-minute preparations that you need:

They mention having to wear a shirt, and yes, you do have to buy it. I have already ordered mine. You can do so here.

Alright, I guess that's all the basic info you need if you wanna participate. I will be there on April 25th and I hope you will be too. Contact me if you need a ride or are planning to go. Even if you don't plan on doing the event, I would appreciate a visit when I'm sitting at the Gallivan Center for hours :)

That is all. Please consider it.

When My Time Comes

I'm sitting in Enano and Tyler's dorm right now. It's quite nice. Right now Enano, Rachel and I are conversing about the many hidden thoughts that we hide in our mind and it's really refreshing. Like...really really refreshing. haha. I must say, I'm glad I'm in Logan right now because I needed a break from Heber.

And on the subject of places and how people feel about them, I always think it's pretty interesting when people can do nothing but complain about the place they live in. It seems to me that there are plenty of things to like and dislike about one's residence and people just don't bother to look for the positive things. It sounds like an attitude problem to me, ha :)

But anyway, it's rather late and I thought I'd just share those two things.


P.S. I made it all of lent without eating fast food at all. It was fairly easy and I even think I lost weight. So yay me.

P.P.S. There has been a huge lack of blogging with everyone lately, so let's change that, eh?
