“There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self.”-Ernest Hemingway
I love this. Sometimes at BYU I feel like a total idiot. Not that I'm not smart, but I compare myself to other people, especially people in my major. At times I try to be better than these people in an attempt to feel more accomplished, and it results in me just feeling worse. I thought this quote was a good reminder for me to not worry about how talented other people are. I am successful in my own ways, and I need to focus on improving, becoming better than my former self.
that one time (a week ago) that I fell down the stairs like a moron
Phil is famous! Front row groupies!
Jayne came over yesterday to hang out. I was laughing the majority of the 3 1/2 hours that we were together. Look at how cute and little she is. I love her. She is the funniest human child.
As we were walking up to go into my apartment she starts jumping and says "I'M SO EXCITEDDDD!!" The whole way over in the car she was getting so pumped (maybe that was because Justin Biebs was playing. I'd like to think I was involved though). She was so excited to be going to "Kate's house." I'm the cool aunt.
We played with my jewelry. So fancy
Jayne and I were watching this Disney song countdown on youtube. She was singing along and loving it. One song came on (pretty sure it was Reflection from Mulan) and she got extremely excited and grabbed my cheeks and kissed me right on the lips.
After our youtube sing along we walked to the corner market to buy cookie dough. We made cookies and had a cookie picnic on the living room floor while watching Sleeping Beauty.
I told Jayne about how Ashley visits sick kids dressed up like Belle to help them feel happy. She then proceeded to grab her stomach and said "I'm sick...Maybe your friend should come visit me" she's learning young
Jayne colored during our cookie picnic. I now have a gorgeous drawing tucked into my scriptures. Love her.
Boyfriend was sick when Jayne came over, but don't worry we got pictures last Sunday.
My brother Max is the cutest 11 year old boy to walk to the planet. He instagrams scriptures.
Guys, I'm like really pretty......especially on Christmas
Got to see beautiful Soph over break. Miss her so much.
