Turn, Turn, Turn

It’s that time again. “To everything (turn, turn, turn) /There is a season (turn, turn, turn) /And a time for every purpose, under heaven/A time to be born, a time to die/A time to plant, a time to reap/A time to kill, a time to heal/A time to laugh, a time to weep” And a time to blog. I just realized it’s been almost two weeks since I last updated. I feel like such a hypocrite since I’m always getting after all of you to blog more often. But in all fairness, I really haven’t had much time. I ironically only update while I’m at work. And since I was in a workshop for almost the whole week last week, I really didn’t have the time. And I don’t really have anything to blog about. Austin had a good birthday. I got him good presents (which he wrote about on his own blog). And a good time was had by all. My own birthday is now approaching. (In three days, including today.) It’s kinda hard having my birthday so soon after Austin’s because I feel sorta like an afterthought. I reminded my dad y…

American Idol

I can’t believe I’m finally doing this. I’m finally writing my American Idol post (and finally finished it, I've been writing this for days now). You see, I’m somewhat addicted to the show. Austin and I have watched every episode this season since Hollywood week. (We missed the audition stages.) I first got hooked to the show during season five, which Austin and I watched almost every episode of. Last year was ”eh” so I only watched some of it. But this year I’m back and into it. I’ve been meaning to write about AI for several weeks now but haven’t because I knew it would take a fair amount of time to write this as I wanted to take the time to fully present my opinions. Anyway, I know the show is up to the “Top 7” now, but I am going to include some opinions of people who already left, some missed, some not. I’m not going to present them in any order really but just how they pop into my head. First up: David Archuletta. Yes, I know his talking voice and his penchant for choosing so…

Poll Results and Other News

I have a few things to say. One: I'm working on a post about American Idol. It's going to be good and long. Expect it soon. Two: Poll results: The majority of you either like your job or like it depending on the day. Three of you said “Meh. It could be worse.” Two people hate their job with the passion of a burning sun. Two people like their job only because it pays them. Two people like their job and look forward to each day. One of you likes your job as much as any job could be liked. One of you sometimes likes your job. And not one person said flat-out that they didn’t like their job. Okay, on to my third thing. Three: My best friend had her baby! Since she has her own blog, I’ll let her post about it. I was very happy to hear the news. I am going through the strangest feelings. I’m so happy and touched, I almost want to cry. I can’t believe her baby is finally here! I’m so happy for her. Though I’ve had siblings have babies and I have a few friends who have babies, it seems…
