0078.

I did a lot better today not using technology, other than my cell phone which I don't think I could ever really ween myself off.  It's too easy and in all honesty--too convenient.  Nevertheless it is still goal of mine to ween myself off technology for the summer and to instead use that time to: read, do art, study the scriptures, go to the park, play guitar, write songs, ect.  Obviously I am going to have to use my computer for music, school work, and things that are crucial like e mail.  I will also probably keep up with my blog and dream blog, but other than that i really don't think it's necessary, except maybe the occasional viewing of a favorite music video

Today I cleaned, worked on a project, and watched some Rob and Big, but get this.  I READ while I  was cooking dinner!   I'll be one of those nerds that constantly has a book in their hand and their nose in a book in no time.
Today's book is still eat, pray, love.  I still love it.

I was reading more in eat, pray, love today while i was loading the dish washer, and Liz was talking about writing in her most private notebook she uses when she is having a really hard time.  I had an idea that I think is pretty neat and I wanted to get some feedback on.  Sometimes I get so excited about ideas that i can't really judge them very well.  I told amy and kaitlin right away so it's probably not worth even writing here, but i know some other people read this from time to time. 

I think it would be cool to all get a notebook that we can write all our heart ache in and pain and hard things from summer 09.  Nothing too personal or too deep so that it won't be sad to loose it, because I think on the last day we are all still in town we should get together and have a bon fire and burn it all.
get rid of it.
and move on. 

I know that life takes care of things like this on it's own, but I've always liked concrete things to symbolize progress and help me have a concrete memory.
