New Blog

Hey! Welcome to my blog - Rush Slowly. Check out my about me section if you want to know about the woman behind the words, or just keep checking back for random updates.

If you're wondering about the name of my blog, I'd be more than happy to explain. "Rush Slowly" is an Indian maxim, reminding one to do things quickly, but thoroughly. I first encountered the phrase on Ron and Joyce Hanson's blog about their time in India, and it has stuck with me. Rush Slowly. There is much to be done, but we can't blast from task to task without stopping to appreciate the simple things. "Rush Slowly" pretty much describes life at my beloved Brigham Young University - there is so much to do! It's easy to get overworked and stressed out when taking classes, participating in church activities (being LDS, or Mormon, greatly affects life at BYU), while still trying to maintain some sort of life outside the library.

So, my friends, "Rush Slowly." Work hard, but play hard. Get things done, but take time to breathe. Move forward, but don't forget past lessons. Focus on your goals, but don't close your mind to other options. Appreciate the world around you. God has created a beautiful place for us to live in and wonderful people for us to live with, take some time to be grateful. Rush Slowly.

Yeah! Thanks Kristen! BTW, how did you amazing Hubbardians do all the cool formating on your blogs? I'm very jealous.

Hi.
I just discovered your blog via a comment you left on the Hansons' blog. Your comment about you coming here to India is what caught my eye and I thought I would check out your blog and am very glad that I did.
I am not certain to still be in Chennai when you come to RSO (I am assuming you will be here next summer?), my life being one of constant moving, so I will right away wish you all the very best for your trip.
I look forward to reading more of your thoughtful blog posts.
