The end of an era has arrived. I can’t believe how something I’ve done for more than a third of my life is over. Yesterday was my final performance as a member of a Marching Band. I’m really going to miss it.

Never be defined by your past. It was just a lesson, not a life sentence.…
This is my latest sacrament talk all about the importance of having a Temple Recommend…
“Holding a cat by the tail teaches us things we can’t learn any other way.”
This is the sacrament meeting talk that I gave a few weeks ago. This talk is based on thoughts from Dale G. Renlund’s General Conference talk “Latter-day Saints Keep on Trying.” I hope you enjoy what I’ve written. The image above was taken by myself in Peru while we climbed a mountain for a better view of Machu Picchu.
The long wait has finally come to an end. The much anticipated Bee and PuppyCat premiere is tomorrow! Bee and PuppyCat is the newest installment by Frederator Studio’s Cartoon Hangover project. It was created by Natasha Allegri, known for her character design and storyboard art for Cartoon Network’s Adventure Time. The show is going to be fantastic, I promise.

Imagine taking an Oreo, milk’s famous lover, and crumbling it into tiny chucks, then bathing those crumbly bits in sweet milk chocolate. BOOM!! This is the legendary Japanese chocolate bar known as Black Thunder! Words fail to describe the epic deliciousness of this hidden Japanese treasure. You may think I’m overreacting, but on October 9th, America will know the power of Black Thunder!
The infamous chocolate bar first struck in Toyohashi city. Created by the Yuraku Confectionery Company in 1994, it originally targeted college students living in the Chubo and Kanto regions of Japan (i.e. Tokyo, Yokohama, Toyohashi). The selling point stemmed from the deliciousness and cheap price of the bar. One bar sold at around 30 yen which is about 30 cents, and continues to sell at this price today.Because of the easy access and low prices, college students flocked to indulge on what would slowly become a nation wide obsession.
So, welcome to Denvoros. This is, what you might call, a nerdy blog. But, we promise it isn’t your standard nerdy blog. We’re getting things set up here, so please pardon the dust.
It is so great to be here today. It is so great to be back at average altitudes. To get to the new mission of Peru Huancayo, you either fly for 45 minutes in a small plane, or you travel by bus for 8-9 hours up and down windy roads at crazy altitudes. The first time I left Lima for my first area in the jungle was one of the craziest road trips I ever took. At one point in the trip, you go through the Ticlio Pass, as they call it, at over 15,800 feet. Starting my mission made me as white as a ghost, but not from fear. From lack of oxygen. I hope that today its reverse altitude sickness.
