True Grit

True Grit is truly gritty. I didn't know whether to cover my eyes at the gruesomeness or laugh at the humorous dialogue, so mostly I just covered my eyes. Enjoyable, but I'll let you decide for yourself. I heard someone said Jeff Bridges is the new "Sexy" or something along those lines. I must say he played the role very well, though I'll need to see Tron for the final word on whether or not he's deserving of the title.I myself would just as soon give the sexy title to Josh Brolin. He may have played one of the bad guys, but you must admit... he's hot.

The Washington Chorus

Today a couple friends came with me to see our other friend perform with The Washington Chorus. Here we are the Kennedy Center. Me, Shannon (the one in the chorus), Beth and Cindee. We had a great time, the music was awesome!

Theory: Black Holes Contain Universes

"According to a mind-bending study released this past spring, a black hole is actually a tunnel between universes—a type of wormhole. The matter the black hole attracts doesn't collapse into a single point, as has been predicted, but rather gushes out a "white hole" at the other end of the black one, the theory goes."

Read more here!

This theory is very intriguing! It's like, God's way of recycling! I love this, because we believe that matter has always existed and always will exist. And since God follows the same laws of the universe that the rest of us follow, isn't it nice to know that the rules can account for the purpose of a black hole too?

Isn't the universe amazing?

By the way, this totally makes me think of Carl Sagan's book "Contact". He has similar ideas about the purpose of black holes. Though this theory goes a little further. Either way, I find them both very intriguing. If you like this type of stuff at all, you should read "Contact"! I'll even let you borrow my copy. :)

Nerd out.

Christmas in DC

At our ward Christmas party, here I am with Santa and my friend Emily...
Got another shot with Santa and my friend Shannon!
Thursday night I attended the National Christmas Tree Lighting with some friends! Me and Amanda...
Zack, Carmen, me, Amanda, Amanda's two friends (forgot names), and Brandie!


Two cameras in two years. I took my camera to a parade last weekend and snapped some brilliant shots of a Scottish Santa with bagpipes (you heard me right) but ever since then, my camera has decided to stop reading my memory cards! I think the cold was just too much for them. :(
