I love me some Paul Simon. I really do. And I'm not even leaving a judging space for that.
I had a really nice Thanksgiving. Did you? Thanksgiving with my Mom's family is always awesome because my relatives always bring randoms. This year my aunt brought her old babysitter from ten years ago when they lived in Kansas.
Babysitter friend and I bonded, because we both recently found ourselves college-educated and underemployed in our respective fields. Except Babysitter friend had a much better attitude than I did. She told me that she just had faith that something would work out, and she ended up working at Borders for awhile. She ended up making good friends, one of whom joined the LDS church, which is neat. Compared to my hectic impatience to land the perfect job, she seemed calm, and much happier.
I rarely like to verbalize any level of Mormon Guilt on the internet, because unintentional or not, it tends** to sound preachy, (i.e. "I had this magnificent revelation reading the scriptures, and I felt I needed to share my new found righteousness with those of you still struggling,") but I will say that I was reminded of a few things while talking to Babysitter friend:
1. My time schedule isn't always God's time schedule, but his is better.
2. What if there is something I am supposed to be doing right now, but am not, because I am so frantic to change the currently unchangeable.
About then, my little cousin Jane threw a roll at me, and said "I GOT YOU THAT WAS A GRENADE." Which reminded me of some of the comments on this* post. So I'd like to add the just described scenario to the discussion. Then again, Jane truly believes she is "Half Snow Leopard Half Cheetah," so I don't know, maybe the point is moot.
Random fact: I never use the drive-through window at banks. I don't like it. I don't know why. But I always go in and wait with the old people instead.
Does anyone else have random things they won't do for no reason? Or am I alone?
