A Quick Look at the News

My boxing gloves came today. Yay!! Just in time--my knuckles are getting a little bruised from the punching bag. I've been beating the bag up a lot lately, mainly to keep myself from punching certain irritating people in my apartment complex. :-) I really need to learn patience and kindness.... Nah. These people just need to stop being annoying!! That's what I get for living in BYU housing, I suppose.

Has everyone heard the news about Heath Ledger? I'm actually quite depressed about it. He was only 28! I guess I don't handle death very well, particularly when young people die unexpectedly. It throws off my groove. :-)

Well, there's your sad and depressing news story for the day. Maybe I should counter it with a happy news story.... The polar bear cub in a German zoo opened its eyes today! Yay!!! There. That's happiness.

I hope you all enjoy yourself today. I'm going to teach some more piano lessons. Hopefully I won't make any of the children cry today. :-)

Quote of the Day: Take a music bath once or twice a week for a few seasons, and you will find that it is to the soul what the water bath is to the body. --Oliver Wendell Holmes (1809 - 1894)

Movies for the Week: I Am Legend-- Am I the only one who didn't like this? It was not enjoyable to me, though Will Smith did a great job. It was mainly just depressing.
Jane Eyre-- This is the new-ish Masterpiece Theatre version. If you are in a sappy mood and have 4 hours to spare, this movie is great.

My teacher friend, Michele, is also greatly saddened at the loss of Heath. I'm glad to see you're blogging again!
