Lena Dunham and her friends would do well to stop being such GIRLS (and be ladies instead!)

       The HBO series “Girls” has done remarkably well in it’s short time of syndication.  Creator/producer/director/star Lena Dunham has gained critical acclaim for her series, which purports to depict a realistic look into the gritty lives of 4 young women living in a less than perfect urban New York setting.

        I personally am all about the truth and very much appreciate the idea of realism.  However, this show REALLY rubs me the wrong way.  No matter what anyone tells you, the show is filthy and is all about sex.  Watch the following video for me to expound upon these ideas.  And also let me tell you some about a girl who is as real as real can be (thanks Garth Brooks!), but is still very much a lady!  As is always the case, the video is safe for all eyes and ears!

friends, I really do usually try to keep it to 2 minutes,

but I just couldn’t help it!

*I meant to say you will gain more than you miss by NOT watching that show…

Recap Schmecap:

1)  I believe in free speech.

2)  I have watched a few episodes of “Girls” (but I swear on my favorite lip gloss that I will never watch another one).

3)  Sin is Sin

4)  Wickedness NEVER was Happiness (Alma 41:10)

5)  Don’t disregard a truth/ claim I make just cuz it’s churchy and you might not be into that kind of thing…

5)  I don’t hate anyone (except for Satan)

6)  I think that show has some good thematic substance, but the junk outweighs it BIG TIME.

7) Katherine doesn’t always look show-stoppin hot, but still keeps her clothes on…

8)  Engaging in the sorts of behaviors that show portrays will NOT solve your problems.  It will multiply them!

9)  I never intend to be preachy or unkind or judgmental, but I ain’t afraid to have a strong opinion (duh!)

10)  The devil twists truth for his own purposes (William Shakespeare, “The Merchant of Venice”)

“I will stand as a WITNESS of God at all times, and in all things, and in all places.”

Screen shot 2013-08-03 at 11.20.58 AMThis was a significant part of the theme I would state every Sunday in Young Women’s.  It comes from this passage in the Book of Mormon.

I am not an official spokesperson or representative of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  (But check out more about Michael Otterson here-he’s one of my faves)  But I still do believe it is important (AND GREATLY DESIRE!) to stand as a witness of God, even, and especially when it comes to this blog.

Now I am not perfect by any stretch.

Screen shot 2013-09-02 at 4.05.18 PMYes!  (hard to believe I know…)

Screen shot 2013-09-02 at 4.07.21 PM(“um,” I will continue, thanks John…)

And is there sometimes a bit of possible tension between my 3 fold identity of Mormon, woman, and human?

Absolutely. 

But has there ever been a clash that I believe could

hurt the image of the Church or cause major confusion?

No. 

And if there ever was, I don’t believe I would expose it, at least not completely.

Plus it’s not like I’m super famous anyways so even if I did I’m not sure anyone would care.  🙂

I’m only one voice in a million, but you ain’t takin’ that from me!

it is from this wonderful waving woman…)

love this song, it reminds me of Fiji.  It will change your life. 

LISTEN TO IT!

Girl, get back to your thesis

ANYWAYS, just wanted to express that I am conscious of the fact that this blog in some small way represents not only myself, not only my family, not only my friends, not only the LDS Church, but also Christ himself.

Christ!

Is that blasphemous or arrogant?  No way, Jose.  Peace out!

PS.  I’d give my bangs (first picture!) a B+ that day.

What are you a witness of?

And please don’t stop reading my blog because I

ended that last sentence with a preposition…

See what I did there?

Lyrics. Also a better quality version.  Just a little quip:  STOP BLAMING ANYTHING ELSE!

“C[reativ]ITY NEVER SLEEPS, BETTER SLIP YOU AN AMBIEN!”

When you are so inspired that you have a hard time sleeping, (particularly if you live in the booming metropolis of Provo, which is basically the same thing as New York) it might be time for a sedative.”

Lyrics here. 

#always consult your doctor first 🙂

#never share meds….

#inspiration can be inconvenient

#this song is a literary gem, teachers take note
