One of the benefits of my internship is that I get to hear about all the cool new webpages the church is doing before they are even out. I can't really talk about them much, though, until they are available to the public. Well, the Church just released a new one a few weeks ago. themormonchannel.com . Check it out!

Landon and I love to make mixes, especially when we come up with a good theme for a mix. I came up with the idea to do a mix with the best girl and guy duets. The idea was inspired partly from watching "Walk the Line" the other night and partly from coming across a great new song. The only rule is that there must be a girl and a guy vocalist in the song. Each person should have a significant part, not just a few background "awws." All genres are acceptable. I have a handful of my favorites, but would love any suggestions to not only consider for my mix but also to learn about music out there I don't know about. When I finish it, I will post my final product on here. Please help me out if you have a brilliant suggestion!

As you may or may not know, I started a new internship for this summer. I am officially a Quality Assurance Intern with the LDS church. That means I get to try and find problems in all the new websites the church is producing these days. There are going to be a few new ones coming out in the next couple of months. It is pretty cool, for once I get to work on something that people have actually heard of, like LDS.org.
Actually the best perk so far is the fact that I now have a "super admin" account for the stake and ward websites. That means I can edit any stake or ward website in the whole world. Oh the power!
On the down side, I have to get up at a quarter to six every morning, and I spend around 3 hours a day on a bus going between Provo and SLC. I'm pretty tired by the time I get home in the evening. I plan on doing a lot of reading this summer, and luckily I got a little netbook for graduation. I will get some good use from that.
