FAILURE... but Funny

So... my dear roommate Carlee and I have really outdone ourselves.  We've gotten into this thing where we like to make epic videos.  (To see some of these, click the links. Scary Cliche Movie Scenes Part 1 and the best one of all... Scary Cliche Movie Scenes Part 2.  You won't regret it.  I promise.)

Today, Carlee saw a picture on her friend's facebook wall...

So of course we had to try it out!  We go over to the BYU-I Center, aka the BUIC (pronounced like the car), where there's a nifty new elevator that talks to you.  After about 20 times riding up and down trying to get it to work--and getting laughed at because we're just riding in the elevator over and over like a bunch of kids-- we decided this probably wasn't the smartest thing we've done.  So what do we do?  We go to the library on campus and try it there too.  :)  Our reasoning?  Maybe old elevators work better with this trick than new elevators.  The answer to that is, of course, no.  We just made even more fools of ourselves, especially when people walked in the elevator during our experiment.  

Total failure.  But hilarious at the same time!  I've never had so much fun in an elevator before!  Great way to take a break from piles of homework!  Oh, the things we do.  Every moment is spontaneous with Carlee.  Refer to my post "Things I Love."

The Gospel is like Windshield Wipers

Sometimes you're the windshield, sometimes you're the bug.  But I don't like bugs, so I always try to be the windshield.  Seriously though, I always try to make the best out of every situation!  It's all in the attitude, so why not be happy about life?  There's no reason to NOT be happy.  Every negative situation can be turned into a positive.  Even when I'm having a awful, crummy day, I always have the Gospel.  That's what truly makes me happy.  So I guess you could say that the Gospel is like windshield wipers.  It helps me see past the bugs.  Every confusing, bad situation can be seen past with the clarity the Gospel brings to my life.  What would I do without it?  I can't even express how happy it makes me!
