Fake cigarettes make you look like an idiot!

ImageImage

Truly, they do It’s one of the dumbest trends I’ve seen among college-aged Mormons.  Whether it’s Halloween or some poetry slam, or whatever the case may be.  They look it looks sexy and glamorous and cool and unique, but they really just look pretentious and pathetic.

I once threw a party, and some loser showed up with a fake cig hangin’ outta his mouth.  Guess how long he lasted before I kicked him out?  It was less than 2 minutes.

I realize I’m bein’ a bit harsh, but that’s never stopped me before. 🙂

(But I do like this song):

Alrighty, back to the main point:

Fake cigarettes

make you look like an idiot!

I’m usually a fairly easy person to get along with…

Screen shot 2013-10-24 at 5.46.23 PM

but I have little to no tolerance for people who deliberately and casually break laws/ rules, particularly the BYU Honor Code (including, but not limited to, modesty and curfew regulations).

I don’t care if you don’t agree with it, YOU SIGNED IT!

If you don’t want to live by it, get out and give your spot to one of the thousands who wish they could have gone to school here!

I’m NOT looking to get offended, I know we are all human, but people who think they are too good to obey that stuff make me fume.

Brigham Young didn’t put up with a lot of crap.

Neither did my grandfather Ernest.

And neither do I.

OBEY THE (Brigham Young University) RULES, PEOPLE.

You can maintain your individuality/ identity/ personality

while still doing this!

“I have been asked what I mean by ‘word of honor.’ I will tell you:  Place me behind prison walls—walls of stone ever so high, ever so thick, reaching ever so far into the ground—there is a possibility that in some way or another I might be able to escape; but stand me on the floor and draw a chalk line around me and have me give my word of honor never to cross it. Can I get out of that circle? No, never! I’d die first.”

FRIENDS!

1.  What rules, laws, statutes, or codes have YOU committed to honor?

2.  How far would you go to defend your honor and personal integrity?

3.  How can you be even better committed to keeping your word?

PS.  I know that sometimes even good people make mistakes and unfortunately may even break the Honor Code.  I strongly believe in repentance/change in these cases.  Read here for a bit more about this.

The answer, my friend…

 is blowing in the wind!

~Bob Dylan

Dear friends,

Although I love Bobby (he was named after the British poet Dylan Thomas!), I proclaim that the answers to life’s questions are in actuality NOT blowing in the wind; they instead come from righteous men and women who are inspired of God!  I invite you to watch the next session or two of LDS General Conference.  Click here para más información.

Hope you take me up on that offer.  But if not, I guess we can still be friends…

And although I ADORE Kacey Musgraves,

I ain’t just blowin’ smoke…

(figuratively or literally…)

I’m tell you the answer(s), my friend(s)

🙂

To err is human;

to forgive, divine.

*I  like that first video A LOT (although the title is misleading).  Also, another BYU athlete was unfortunately involved with a recent infraction of the Honor Code.  Similar to Mr. Davies, this athlete is making amends, both spiritually and academically.  Read a smashing article about him here.

One website tops it all!

I use a lot of different websites and sources for research, development, entertainment, teaching, communication and of course for inspiration and reference for this blog.  But one specific URL address stands out from all the rest…

this video is about 2x the length I usually do, but still watch it, okay? 🙂

Oh, and here’s just a little outtake:

Now, go visit that website I mentioned…

Love always, Ms. Katherine

Pay Day!

Explore More Issues Here:

1)  Line of Propriety

2)  Sunburn stuff

3)  Bad hair day means good writing day!

4)  Bragging?  Guilty.  YOU WOULD TOO!

Oh, and by the way, I was singing a version of a John Mayer song (SHOCKING, right?)….

Lyrics here. 

The song is VERY interesting.  The melody/guitar itself is hauntingly beautiful, but the words are contradicting the story-teller’s true convictions (unreliable narrators are FASCINATING).  You see, Johnny is lonely and trying to convince himself that he can engage in self-destructive behaviors (drugs, women, etc.) and it won’t effect him.  Sad.

Have done my own version of “Who Says.”  And I will DEFINITELY include it soon…

But Back to the Benjamins:

Laughing all the way to the bank…

PS.  The check wasn’t for a ton.  And also it will not even begin to cover the costs of medical expenses I will incur from the pending thunderbolt of blasphemy I will shortly receive due to my comparing myself to Brad Paisley.
