What it's like having a crafty wife


Especially now that she's working on projects for her book.

Student Council

Today we had Student Council elections, and I am now officially the Treasurer for the student body for the OSU College of Optometry. It may sound cool, but I ran unopposed, so the outcome wasn't really a surprise. I am also the Treasurer for my individual class (the Class of 2015). I also was unopposed in that election.

They were the easiest campaigns ever! All I had to do was say that I won't embezzle any funds, and BAM! that was it. Baby cakes.

Also, there is an art contest going on right now, and I entered a couple of "optometry related" pieces. I hope I win! The winner is declared Friday, I think. They get a $100 gift card. I should take a picture of them so you can see them. One of them (my favorite one) kind of looks like this:

I taped out the letters, then splattered paint all around it, kind of like a Jackson Pollock painting.

I'm getting a little older

I'm working on studying for my Mechanisms of Disease midterm while listening to Pandora. I'm listening to my "Cake" radio station, and I realized that this was one of my first Pandora radio stations that I created. Out of curiosity (and to procrastinate a little bit more), I checked the history of this station and I saw I made it back in 2007.

Realizing this is the 6th year that I've been listening to this station made me feel like I'm getting old. But not super old. Just older. And then I realized that this will be the 5th year I've been writing on this blog. That seems like a long time.

Hey, remember when I used to write a blog post every day? That was pretty cool...

I'm looking forward to my birthday this year because it's my Star Birthday and/or my Golden Birthday! Turning 26 on the 26th! I feel bad for Olivia because this year is her Star Birthday too, but she'll be too little to actually enjoy it.

Primary kids...

Katie and I taught the 6 and 7 year-old primary class today. As always, the kids are super funny. We usually laugh at the funny things they say and do, but I think today we heard the funniest thing ever.

At the end of our lesson, the kids were coloring in a sheet that had pictures of different things referring to priesthood blessings, and the girls were talking about how long their hair was. I pointed out to the kids that Katie got a hair cut last week and how good it looked. They all admired it appropriately.

Then one girl said, "Brother Lewis, remember that time you tried to grow your hair out, but instead it just got all poofy?"

I kind of laughed and said, "Oh, did I tell you this story or something?"

Then she said, "No, I just noticed."

Wow. Kids can be brutal sometimes. Needless to say, I'll be getting a haircut every 6 weeks from now on.
