New

It's been about a year and a half since I created this blog, and it needed some remodeling. I was getting tired of the fonts, and though purple is my favorite color, I was tired of the background. The image never fit fully and was cut off.
I also changed the URL for security reasons. And it is simpler.
It is much simpler, and a little less typical-mormon-girl-blog.

When I post links to this blog on facebook, it is only to a group of people. I write some things on here that not all of facebook needs to read. Not because I pick and choose favorites or anything. It is mainly for security.

Have a great day!

Jazz

This is my 100th post!
(I thought an earlier one was, but I counted wrong!)

Being a cellist and classical pianist, it may or may not be a surprise to any readers that I love jazz.
 I do not have many (if any) opportunities to play, and I'm not very picky on the kind of jazz that I like, so I do not have any favorite bands. I do love Vince Guaraldi's piano work. Otherwise, I just really enjoy some good jazz when I have the chance to hear it.
There is a radio station here that plays all jazz. 24/7. 
That radio station is now what I have my alarm set to.
There is nothing quite like waking up to good jazz music in the morning. It won't put me back to sleep like Handel or Bach, and it won't irritate the snot out of me like Nicki Minaj or Justin Bieber. There are no corny love lyrics or songs about beer in the barn like those on the country stations (that just make me want to gag), and zero commercials where the DJ is shouting about your chance to "win big". Just smooth, tasteful, talented, smart expression.
I am so happy because of this!

Explode

There are so many things that have me feeling like my brain is going to explode.

I will try to keep this post short.

Women posting pictures of shirtless muscular men with captions of "yes please", "yum", and "gimme more" is no different than a man posting pictures of a curvy, scantily dressed women with captions of "yes please", "yum", and "gimme more".

The arguing that is going on over the Chik-Fil-A deal is driving me absolutely nuts. It has exploded into this huge deal that did not need to become so exaggerated. 

I cannot wait for this election to be over.

I keep saying that all of these terrible things that keep happening are just signs that the Second Coming is closer than ever. More and more though, I am starting to agree with my Grandma. If it is just going to keep getting worse, I don't think I want to live through it.

And the "hipster" fad just needs to die.


I'm such a terrible, hateful person for posting this. o_o
