Happy 100th Post!

This is my 100th post on my blog!  Sweet!  In a little less than a year, I have blogged 100 times.  Crazy!  What's even crazier is that people are actually reading what I write!  :)  So in honor of y 100th post, I thought I'd elaborate on my Facebook status from a couple of days ago about seeing double.  :)  Don't remember or didn't see the post?  Well, let me quote it for you (or at least paraphrase it; Facebook is being dumb, so I may not successfully put the post word-for-word...)

"Today I practiced two different instruments, made two trips to Wal-Mart, had two cell phones on my person for about two hours, and wrote two pages of text that will be read in front of over two thousand people. Is it just me, or am I seeing double?"

Confused?  Well, that was kind of the point.  :)  However, I thought you might enjoy it if I explained some of the "doubles" to you.  :)

The two instruments one is pretty easy.  Right now I'm in private organ lessons and private cello lessons.  So on Thursday the 5th, I went to campus to practice my two instruments, the organ and the cello, before embarking on the rest of my hectic day.

The next two kind of go together.  My roommate Jill had her wisdom teeth removed on the 5th.  I know, fun... So she gave me charge of her cell phone during the surgery and for a while after the surgery.  She didn't want to risk being like one of those people that reacts poorly to the anesthesia and sends random, incoherent texts to her friends or family.  Can't say I blame her.  :)  However, there was no need for that precaution.  Within a few minutes of us leaving the oral surgeon's office, it was clear to me that Jill was fully coherent and didn't seem to have any negative effects from the anesthesia beyond being a little tired and unsteady on her feet.  Lucky her.  :)    And the two trips to Wal-Mart came into effect when I had to call in and then pick up Jill's prescriptions.  The wait was long enough when I called them in that I decided to go home and then go back later to pick them up.

And now for the last one.  I've been kind of sitting on this for a little bit, but now I'm ready to come out and say it more openly.  :)  I've been asked to speak at graduation!!!  There are two different parts to graduation.  There's commencement, which is the big huge ceremony for all of BYU, and then there's convocation, which is a smaller ceremony for each of the different colleges.  And I've been asked to speak at the convocation for the McKay School of Education on April 20th!  I can't believe it!  It's one of those huge privileges that always happen to someone else.  But now it's happening to me!  So I have written two single-spaced pages of text that I will be reading in front of over 2,000 people.  Talk about scary!  But it's a huge honor, and I'm super excited!  Should be great!
