I got back a few hours ago from the annual 3-day trip to Zion National Park with my ward.
We hiked the nine-mile Observation Point trail (round-trip):
And swam in a water hole:
I had an amazing time. I love being with these people, they are so much fun.
But it's good to be home :)

Reasons Why

So I guess I can be sort of passive-aggressive sometimes. Or maybe drawing a cartoon about how I'm mad at someone makes me feel better than actually telling the person that I'm mad.
Anyway, my roommates saw this left on the kitchen table yesterday and thought it was funny and that it should be on the internet, so here you go:

I'm trying to get back into playing the piano. I took lessons for ten years, but when I moved away from home I stopped playing, since the old baby grand in our living room at home was really the only piano I felt comfortable playing on. Today I printed off sheet music for two songs I really like.
One is Chopin's Nocturne in C sharp minor, as featured in The Pianist, and the other is Satie's Gnossienne #1, as featured in The Painted Veil. You can listen to them here and here if you're interested.
Now I just need to find a piano to play them on...
