Friday listyness!

  1. I didn’t have a headache today! I still have a bit of sinus conjestion, but that’s it.
  2. I actually got up around 5:15 this morning, not 5:30.
  3. I’m so not setting my alarm tomorrow, because it’s Saturday! I don’t need to get up at 5 on a saturday, although if I do on my own, that would be fine.
  4. I also won’t be making my daily to-do list for tomorrow, as I don’t make them on weekends. I don’t really do much on weekends anyway, so making a list would most likely result in me not finishing it.
  5. It’s weird that April Fools Day is on a Sunday this year!
  6. I’m definitely going to try and stay away from Twitter on Sunday, because you never know what you’re going to find there on April Fools Day.
  7. It’s also weird that April 1st is Palm Sunday!
  8. Easter is on the exact same day it was 5 years ago, I remember this because I was baptised on April 8th, 2007, which was Easter Sunday!

One of those days.

I’ve had a headache all day today, so I didn’t do much at all. Last night, I ended up having to get up and take sleeping pills, because I just couldn’t get to sleep. The pills that I take are the natural ones that don’t usually give me headaches, but I still tend to wake up with them every now and then, and I had a bit of one yesterday, (I didnt take the pills the night before last.) I’m trying not to take sleeping pills if I can avoid it. It was weird, because I think I fell asleep for about a half hour yesterday, that was it. I think some of this headache stuff is weather-related, because I’m having sinus stuff too, and we’re having one day nice, and the next day rainy weather here.

Answering a question.

How likely are you to wake up within 10 minutes of your alarm clock sounding in either direction? When I set the alarm on my phone, or set a wake-up call, it will wake me up, 99% of the time. I think I’ve only missed one wake-up call, in the 2 years I’ve been using them. Of course I don’t use them every day, but this week I’m on a bit of a mission to try to get up as close to 5:00 as I can, because I’ve been waking up late for the past 2 or 3 weeks before that. I’ve been fairly successfull, getting up at about 5:30 today and yesterday. I don’t like it when I get up late, and usually if I’m starting to do that on a regular basis, I have to do something to try and change that, or I’ll just keep doing it.
Via that’s my answer

Weekly links for 3/27.

I was actually thinking about skipping weekly links this week, but I do have a couple links to post.

One more thing on Spotify, I don’t use it because it requires a facebook account, and I don’t want to share everything I listen to on facebook.

Today at healing rooms.

We had a lot of people come in for prayer today! I’m not sure how many we had, (I didn’t get a chance to ask the lady who keeps the records,) but we had to bring in one person right after another. When we opened the envelope for the first person I went in to pray for, I found out that I knew that person! I actually know him fairly well, because his wife is one of my friends from church. While the others were praying, I started thinking of the chorus of this song

We haven’t sang this song in church for months now, since last year sometime. What I did next was probably even weirder, but the person didn’t seem to mind, and neither did everyone else on the prayer team. I proceeded to sing the chorus of the song! Yep, I sang, while the person was still in there… and he didn’t run out! Everyone said I actually sang fairly well. Then, after I was done singing, I did the most obvious thing, (the thing I was supposed to do,) and actually prayed for the person.

Because it seemed like the most fun thing at the time…

I thought I’d mix things up a bit with some quizzes, because I haven’t posted any in a while.

You Are a Hybrid

You’re the type of person who worries about doing the right thing. You’re very conscientious.

You care about the world and the effect you have on it. You consider your actions carefully.

Doing the right thing makes you feel good. It’s who you are, not what you have, that makes you happy.

You make rational decisions and think about all aspects of your actions. You don’t act rashly.

You Are Navy Blue

You’re a true adventurer. You constantly find yourself drawn to new experiences, people, and places.

Sometimes you feel quite scattered and bored. If something exciting isn’t going on, you feel a bit lost.

You Are a Kiwi

You’re a very outgoing person. You start each day excited about the people you’ll see and meet.

You’re the type of person who’s just comfortable around others. You are a very social creature.

You are quite opinionated. You can’t help but have a view on everything, and you don’t mind sharing it!

You are prepared for whatever comes your way in life. You plan for the worst and expect the best.

You Are Chicken Fried Steak

You are bold and fearless. You tend to think big, and that includes eating big.

If you’re going to go out to eat, then you’re going to order something amazing. No salads for you!

You live in the now. You figure the future is uncertain, so you might as well just make the best of today.

You don’t believe in moderation or holding back. You just go for it, consequences be damned.

Church ran a bit long today, we sang a lot of songs, more than usual. I didn’t get up until 9 for some reason, even though I set the alarm on my phone to go off at 6. I guess I’m in a phase of getting up really late for some reason.

Today.

I went to go share my testimony at the women’s mission this morning. I think it went fairly well, noone really asked any questions. Afterwards, my friend Kim and I went to lunch. We stayed at lunch for a while, and talked about various things. Then she brought me home, and went back to work. She works on Saturday’s, that’s why she has me go in to share on Saturday’s. I actually wouldn’t have minded if someone wanted to ask me some questions, as long as they aren’t the overly hilarious ones, because I’d probably crack up laughing right there.

A question.

When choosing a gift, what do you get someone who has everything? Do you try to be clever? Or do you just get them a card? First of all, I think cards are overrated, at least for me. I usually get them a gift card though, I’m not that good at choosing gifts without a list of some kined. If someone makes a Christmas list, or I ask them what they want for their birthday, and they actually give me an answer, it’s easier for me than to pick something out of thin air.
Via that’s my answer.
I’ll be leaving at 9 tomorrow morning to go to the women’s mission, which means I’ll probably want to get up around 5 or 6. I like to have 3 or 4 hours before I go somewhere, so that I can do whatever.

My haircut is finally finished!

My friend came over to cut the second half of my hair today. I now have short hair, which is the way I like it! I don’t exactly do anything with my hair, (besides brush and wash it,) so I like short hair. I’m just not a fan of taking 45 minutes to an hour and a half to get ready to go somewhere, and doing hair usually takes most of that time, (well, it does for my sister anyway.) I called sprint today, to ask them why I had to pay an extra $75, even though my account was supposed to be canceled. They told me it was for January and February, but I thought that’s what I paid when I paid the remaining balance before I went to cancel my account. I asked if the account got canceled, and the guy said that it did, but I still owe the $75. On Saturday I’ll be going to the women’s mission to share my testimony again. My friend asked me to come, since she has a new group of ladies there.

Yesterday and tomorrow.

Not a whole lot went on here today, so I thought I’d talk about something that happened yesterday, and something that will probably happen tomorrow. My friend’s boyfriend went to jail yesterday, to face his drinking and driving and eluding charges. Oh I guess there’s one thing from today, I got a letter from Sprint in the mail saying I owe $75.13, but I called and asked them to cancel my account either at the beginning of last month, or the end of January. I paid the remaining balance at the time, and they said my account would be canceled at the end of my cycle the next month. I thought that since I had already paid the remaining balance, that I didn’t owe them anything else. My sprint phone hasn’t worked since last summer, it won’t take a charge. Tomorrow, my friend plans to come and finish the haircut that she didn’t finish last time. I’m hoping she does, because I’m ready for the length to be gone!
