I'm avoiding writing a 20 page paper that is due in less than 24 hours. That is more than one page an hour, a task I am confident I could accomplish if I didn't have to work, sleep, eat, or breathe. As for the accomplishing of the task, it will happen. It always does.
For now, I wanted to upload a picture of a little (okay, not so little) project I completed this past weekend for one of my sweet friends from my time at Idaho State University.

I was very busy over Spring Break. I hardly had a day where I didn't stay booked all the way through, but in some ways it was my favorite way to spend the week.
Did I finish all the bazillion tasks I needed to accomplish? Nope. Hardly.
Did I have a little bit of time with each, some friends, family, and strangers? Sure did.
I used to be so good at taking photos of everything, but not anymore. Instead I have to steal pictures of my accomplishments and events from other people who are better at remembering to take them.
Here are a few pictures of the non-bridal shower-shower that I planned and hosted for my sister.

I was expecting a nice relaxing Spring Break since I didn't plan any big trips (as I would have loved to).
It is a good thing I didn't go anywhere.
I have a bazillion and three things to take care of this week and I already feel like the time is going by so quickly I won't have enough time to do it all!
I don't have to do all this AND work at the same time.
Thank the heavens!

Happy Easter, for it truly is a day to celebrate.
For me, and this tough heart of mine, Easter and the celebration of our Lord and Savior's sacrifice in the garden at Gethsemane, on the cross at Golgotha, and every day since through His merciful Atonement, it is a day of gratitude. For everything I am now, and everything I am yet to be, is because He loves me. And He loves you too.

I feel like I've been punched in the face
and had my neck wrung.
That is what my face and my neck feel like right now.
I have no idea why.
Can stress cause bruises and massive sharp pains?
Ones that last for over 30 days?
Because if so, I should be black and blue.
I'm so tired of trying to figure out why I have these problems and always being told I'm too fat.
I am too fat.
But, I have done everything in my power to change that and nothing seems to work.
And anyway, I've never known anyone to get a bruised face from being too fat.
Summer can't come soon enough.

Once in a while I have these little glimmers of moments where I see that I might be actually making a difference in the lives of others.
Today, watching the video that a few of my students and I began the journey of creating over a month ago, I realized I may have made a difference for those girls. Hopefully in the same way we hoped to when we embarked on our Anti-Bullying campaign for our school. Especially for the girl-stuff bullying.
What an adventure! I am impressed by all that I have been able to learn, all my girls have been able to learn, and all we have been able to accomplish together. Too many people believed that 2nd/3rd grade girls don't have the ability to advocate effectively for the things they struggle with. Too many people said it was too much work, too complicated, and not worth our time.
But they were wrong. We did it. And I think we made a change in the world, if only a small one.
