I have been assigned to give a talk at church tomorrow on priorities for busy graduate students. I have spent all morning writing my talk. Not sure it is quite right but don't know what else to say.
Whenever I write a talk I end up writing it out. I feel like there is a bit of a stigma for this, that you should just take notes and speak by the spirit. I have done this before and I can do it just fine, but I feel more comfortable having it written out. Does this make me less spritiual? I kind of feel like it does, or that people think that. I know my friend Diana must feel the same way because she made me reassure her once that it was okay she wrote hers out. I shouldn't feel ashamed for being prepared and I am able to modify according to time, etc, but I like having a good guide. The apostles have their talks on the teleprompter, so it must be okay, right?
Anyway, I realized just barely that I am a poor candidate for this talk. I think I do a good job of staying on top of school and not stressing much. I do make time for my family, maybe to the extreme where I don't study enough? I know I can't seem to keep my house clean, my cupboards stocked, get enough sleep, and have the energy to exercise since I started SuperBlock. I don't feel up to riding my bike inside today but feel guilty just writing in my talk about the importance of taking care of yourself. And like I said, I am an addict. I have been feeding my Lost addiction at every spare moment.
I hope I am not a hypocrite!
