NY Times Article

This picture is from a New York Times article about a freelance dancer in New York. She only made $25,000 last year from dancing and somehow meets her $1,200 a month rent. Scary! What a life! It is seriously nutty. Here's the link to the article, if you're curious.

My internship isn't too bad. I take photos, edit em, and put them on Facebook. At least that's a part of it. But it is quite enjoyable. I update the Facebook pages for BYU Synthesis (the jazz group) and  Living Legends (a dance group that does Latin American, Native American, and Polynesian dances-- sounds like a yawn, but its actually way exciting)... so I mean, if you want, you can take a look at them and "like" the pages... but I mean only if you want :)
Photos of BYU Synthesis rehearsal I took
I'm so so excited to graduate in December. I mean homework is really dragging me down... I have to go to class... and then spend all night stressing about my papers while I watch a TV show! (seriously, why am I so lazy?)

Also, I love my Journalism major... but I felt such relief a month or two ago when I realized that I don't HAVE to get a job as a reporter if I want to, I'm not forced. I can branch out a bit... there's no harm in that.

Hope everyone's doing well. Love to all.

If I May..

I made home made biscuits today... and if I may... let me just say, they were seriously awesome. The perfect consistency, so fluffy with just a hint of crunch on the outside. I do think that has to do with Grandma Phoebe's little trick of folding the dough on itself a few times before rolling it out... but seriously they were something else. The ones on the left are my babies and the ones on the right are the photo from the online recipe... (so maybe they look a touch funky... how do I get a flat top??)
Also, I got a tip from one of the comments on the recipe, and it made cutting the butter in a real cinch (especially because I don't have one of those wire cutter things, so I would otherwise have to use the two-fork method). I put the butter in the freezer for a bit, then grated it in on a cheese grater into the flour. It was niiice.

PS school is going fine. The internship is going fine. But they both make me stress... :)

xo to all the family.
