Arsenic and Old Lace

No one is in town so we had nothing to do last my temporary roommate Katherine and i watched "Arsenic and Old Lace." Such a funny movie!

The two old ladies, the Brewster Sisters, are the sweetest people ever, and part of their charitable work includes poisoning lonely old men and burying them in their cellar, so the men can finally have peace. Sounds bizarre, but somehow they make it an act of love. Throw a newlywed theater critic, a wanna-be Teddy Roosevelt, a psycho murder and his Asian accomplice, a frustrated bride, and 3 clueless policemen in the mix, and it's a hilarious time!

I promise they all end up happily ever after. Except for the psycho murderer. But everyone else is happy.

I heart Provo

I have heard so many people say that they can't stand Utah and they just can't wait to get out of there...but I don't get it.

I was really sad to leave home, but returning to BYU campus made it all better. I love the fresh green grass and beautiful flowers, I love the security of being nestled beside the mountains. I love the peace and solitude of campus when no one is around.I love the library and the overwhelming access to knowledge it contains. I love seeing all my old friends at Jamba Juice. I love being surrounded by so much talent. I love hearing teenagers walking across campus singing hymns. I love having memories around every corner along with anticipation of what is to come.

I love my life.
