In this instance, I feel kind of like a failure.

So today is my cousin Matt's homecoming. He's been gone on his mission for two years now and has been back for a few days. Time to partay! I can't wait to see him and the rest of the Ex-Tex gang. It's been years, really, even though we're in the same state.

And the reason I feel like a failure is...well, I never wrote him. I didn't write Jasmine, Ladd, or Karl either!

I don't know what it is, but I have an aversion to such things. I can't actually write mail! I can comment, blog, email, and even text (when stealing someone else's phone), but I don't write mail.

One reason is because I have bad writing. I'm a much better typist then I am a writer. Or whatever you call it. Italics are the bane of my existence, and my printing doesn't really look that much better. So really, I'd rather just type something funny and have it be a little less special. As long as the other person can read it, that's all the matters.

Another thing reason is...half the time I don't even know what to write. Take my missionary cousins. I love hanging out with them, but when away, we don't exactly interact much. I've gotten better at keeping in touch through Facebook, but really, I don't talk to them much. What to write to cousins on mission? I never had a clue. So those letters never got written.

Who knows, maybe someday I'll actually write a missionary. There was one person I totally would have written, but he isn't able to go on a full time mission, as much as he'd like to.

So again, those letters will never get written.

I don't know, I find it kind of funny. I remember all of my older sisters writing several missionaries and I haven't written a single letter. Is this a good thing? Probably not. Am I okay with it? Totally.

That's just me though.


Oh! For my music corner. Meet my new creation, Candy Pop Remix. This was a test video to help me figure out parts of AVID, my video editor. I still have a long way to go, but this test clip is finish!

Aqua's Candyman meets Big Bang's and 2NE1's Lollipop music video. Love both songs and they just really go together...This clip has several really off parts, but I'm moving onto new projects. So enjoy this and remember that you got to be among the people who got to see my early movies before I was famous. *winkwink*

This is what you write.

Dear John,
Why are they called Dear John letters when you should be addressing them as Elder? "Dear Elder John", right? Anyway, hi. How are you? How's the mish? How's the companion? I'm doing good. Not much new or exciting except I did get a pet cactus last week. I dressed her in a pink poodle skirt. Looks something like this. ::insert stick figure drawing here::

In YW they always said you should write about what you're studying in the scriptures. But, even assuming you ARE studying your scriptures, which is a big assumption, how could that possibly be interesting to anybody? Every six months we'd have that lesson, and to take up the last ten minutes, they'd pass out paper and pens and have us write a letter right there.

"Dear John,

"Today I finally cracked the halfway mark in the book of Alma. The bloodshed was great and made me feel the spirit. It made me realise how much I need to repent. I haven't slain any wicked kings since Beehives at least.

"How do you like Zanzibar? Can you speak Zanzibarbarian yet? How spicy is the food?


"You're reluctant correspondent,

"Whatever, you don't know me anyway.
