Three kinds of people ...

Those who can count. And those who cannot.

Jk. :)

1. For those of you who want to know why I feel the way I do about BYU, go here. It is completely respectful, and completely just insight from my experiences. It is not a post hatin' on BYU nor a platform for others to hate on BYU. No gold stars will be awarded for reading it or leaving comments, as I do not want to falsely persuade people to read it. It is just a respectful and genuine perspective of why USU students have ill feelings towards BYU if you honestly want to know.

2. For those of you who want to know if I actually like anything about BYU {and I do}, you can go here. Daren, read as: this.is.for.you! Gold stars will be awarded regularly on this post. :)

3. For everyone else:

Have I told you that I love my job? Because I do.

And in case I haven't clarified, I love my clients.

I wish with all my little heart that I could share pictures of my clients with you and share who they are, because why should I be so blessed to know them and love them without YOU and others being as blessed to know and love them?

Clearly, due to confidentiality reasons, I cannot post photos {I cannot even take photos}, and I cannot tell most of what goes on during my day.

But there are some things I can tell you. And it pleases me that today I will be able to tell you a couple of those things. :)


I wore this shirt the other day:



One of my clients came up to me and touched the sparklies. And he asked, "What's this?"

"Oh, they are ... uh, it's bedazzled. It's bedazzlement."

"Bedazzled," he repeated in his sometimes difficult to understand mumble.

Several hours later when I came back into the room he came to touch it again and said, "Bedazzled."

Hahaha. The teaching moments are endless. :)

Another day I was wearing this:

Another client came up to me on this day and said, "Ohhh, Mindy. Is your back okay?"

Given, I do have back issues. But I was surprised how he knew. "Uhm, yeah, L. It's totally fine. Why?"

Said L, "You have your back brace on."

"Ohhhh! No, no. This is not back brace! It's just ... a cute belt!"

"That you wear to help your back?"

"Err ... No, it's just a cute belt."

"A cute belt ... Huh." He said.

Hahaha! Okay, so one successful teaching moment out of two ... I will take what I can get. :)

Hope your jobs are just as amusing as mine. :)

Does anyone else use pre-dating posts? Meaning you write a blog when you have time, but put the date as a future time so it will nicely post itself at that point in time? Loooove it. :) I cannot tell you how happy it made me when I found this feature. So, today's post was brought to you by the letter M, the number 3.1, and by pre-dating posts. :) If you can tell me where I got that from {brought to you by a letter and a number} you can get 500 gold stars. :)

Can I just say that I LOVED your article on BYU?!! Growing up in the heart of happy valley, I can't even explain the strange looks and complete lack of understanding I got from people when I told them I didn't even apply to BYU and was moving two hours away to attend USU. You'd think I were telling them I was planning on going to school on the moon. They just couldn't fathom it. That said, I have some great friends that went to BYU and I do believe it is a great school. So kudos to you for summing up in a very respectful and eloquent way the feelings I have had about BYU for years. Maybe I should print it out and give it to people who question my educational choices in the future... :)

Sesame street is one of the best shows of all time. I didn't know that was called "pre-dating." I thought it would be "post-dating" because you post-date a check if you date it for a day that is in the future.

Shan said...

Sesame Street!!! I had to clue there was a pre-dating feature. I may have to check it out.

Meg said...

I schedule posts all the time. In fact, that was how all the posts I put up this month appeared, they were all written last month. I only write posts about once or twice a month usually. I love it. Makes blogging regularly much easier. :)

I had no idea you were referencing Sesame Street until I read the comments. Yes, I have two three-year-olds and no, we don't watch Sesame Street.

Andi said...

I wish I had a back brace like yours :)

I really enjoyed reading this! Very interesting.

Thanks for making my blog stalking so enjoyable.

Erica said...

Now you got me all curious and feeling guilty for not knowing what you do. I know I should know that.

As for your last question...Um, Hello, totally Sesame Street! We only watch that every single morning around here, and I may or may not have all of season 40 and 41 memorized. :)

"Can you tell me how to get.....how to get to Sesame Street!" :)

Love the Bedazzled, too!
