Make Your Mother Proud

Tuesday, January 31, 2012

    Today I did something that would not make my mother proud.  I ordered a Vegan Starters Kit from PETA.  If my mother found out she would picket and burn an animal in my front yard in retaliation.  Just Kidding.  But let's just say she's not PETA's most avid fan, but she is "health's" most avid fan and would support the Vegan aspect. So hey mother, technically I'm doing what you've taught me:  to live in the sweet light of Health and...sapping PETA of it's resources by ordering a free kit - in which they pay shipping and handling - therefore, I myself am burning a symbolic sacrificial animal in PETA's front yard.  You're welcome.

The Crest

Saturday, January 28, 2012

    I'm in California again this time with my oldest brother Jimson and Nana. I love these people so much, I am so lucky to be in this family. A Lynch and a Nielson is what I am - so much to live up to and so much to build upon. I have amazing blood running through these veins.

Walking as the snow covers my face and hair, on my way to French class at the University.  Have a great day everyone.

      From my cousin, Jessica who is a doing incredible things in the realms of science as an amazing Neuroscientist: Here is some great advice from a very wise man, to anyone that wants to learn 

"Learning neuroscience is a challenge. One reason is that it is difficult to begin by presenting the 'big picture' and then move to the details. Instead, in most cases one can't understand the big picture without knowing the details. Usually it is not until the end of the course that all the pieces start to 'come together'. This causes anxiety. The most important advice I can give is, be patient. The big picture will eventually become clear."                           ~ Dr. Oswald Steward ~

      Neuroscience, I love it.  It's my favorite section at Barnes & Noble.  A good 50% of the books I revel in contain a trace of it.  I hope to one day play a small part in this field of science after my education.  Taking the first step, patience, and hard work, my friends. 

Laguna Bottled Water

Sunday, January 22, 2012

   You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.                                                                       - James A. Froude English historian (1818 -94)

    This past weekend I was able to spend with my lovely Nana, brother Topher, his fiancee Johanna, and my mum.  Oh how I needed it.  I felt like a fish who's been out of water too long these past few weeks and a little family + beach time was my perfect H2O.  Apparently, I have expensive taste in water.  
     BUT I only spent $14 on this trip.  Why? Because I fly for free with Southwest thanks to the mum's employment and because my lovely Nana has found freedom along with a beachside apartment on Laguna Beach.  So the $14 was for parking my car at the airport before I left the state of Utah.  Glory being to blessings from God.  I am so lucky, happy, grateful, and amazed at the things I am given sometimes.  And of course, I never know when one of those blessings will be taken and passed to someone else so I'm trying to enjoy the saturated goodness while it's here. 
   Speaking of saturated, my eyes were saturated as the plane crossed the snow saturated Utah border taking me back to my life in Provo. It wasn't the happiest moment of my life. That plane was having a tug a war with the state of California over my soul.  I wanted California to win, but physics were against us.  I also wanted to remember happiness as I returned, despite the recent loss of friends in Provo, and loss of the people closest to me here.  
   But then again, there is beauty in the breakdown, according to Frou Frou. And according to Mae, my Destination=beautiful. So, what's to be unhappy about?  My goal this week is to not waste one moment on myself, not give one moment to sadness, self-pity, discouragement, etc.  I'm listening to a commercial right now on my roommate's TV that just said "It's time to fight back".  haha that's right shallow tv commercial, it IS time to fight back. 
     Let the exciting week begin.
