Happy MLK Day to my American friends, and happy Monday to everyone else! Today Megan and I are hosting a little linkup called "I Believe" in honor of one of the most famous believers in American history. Check out what I believe in and then write your own post and link up! I really believe you should. (Sorry, was that too much?)
That toilet paper should always be placed with the new sheet on top.
Why is this so difficult? And yet every time Jordan replaces the toilet paper, he puts it in wrong.
In the value of turn signals.
You know how you're driving behind someone, and they randomly slow down for no reason? And then they turn and you're like, "A turn signal would have been nice." Yeah, that.
Everyone should love their job.
If you don't love your job, find one you do love. It's out there for everyone.
Audio books should not count on the same list as total books read for the year.
I've been wanting to mention this for a while now, and I would love to hear your opinion on this. When someone says they read x number of books last year, do you assume they mean physically read the book? Or is it okay if this number includes listening to an audio book?
Here's my thing, and I'm sorry if this offends anyone but this is just what I think about it:
Reading is hard. You have to concentrate. You have to be intentional about it. You usually can't be doing something else while you're reading, so it's a lot more work to actually finish a book. Plus, if I learned anything from reading What the Internet is Doing to Our Brains, it's that we're all losing our ability to concentrate on actual books, so reading is an important skill we all need to continue to practice.
An audio book, on the other hand, you can do while doing basically anything--driving to work, on a road trip, cooking dinner, exercising. Audio books are still reading, but I don't think it's reading in the same sense as reading a book is.
So I personally will only include books I physically read in my list of books read for the year. Other people can obviously do what they want, but I maintain my position that audio books and books books should not be on the same list.
This is probably the most ridiculous discussion ever, but I've honestly been dying to ask you guys: what do you think?
Families should enjoy being together.
I take many things for granted that I shouldn't, but I don't take my family for granted. We have so much fun together, and I love it.
In the importance of going to church.
I really really love my church. Sometimes I do wish I could just sleep in, but honestly? Being there is the highlight of my week. I don't want to be one of those Christians who beats people over the head about Jesus, but in all seriousness I just want you to know that I wish everyone believed in the power of the Gospel, and I really do pray for you guys.
The Cubs will win a World Series... some day.
They WILL. And it will be awesome. And I will never stop talking about it ever.
I do not believe in ghosts. Or aliens.
I just don't. The end.
What do you believe?
