Elder Dance-a-Lot: My YouTube Debut

February 7, 2011

There are a lot of days when I look back at my college years and think, "Dang. I really should have majored in [insert random field of study that I probably would have sucked at here]."

My missed opportunity changes drastically depending on my mood that day. Sometimes I pine for lots of money, other days it's about flexibility, and every now and again, I guess I just feel like smoking a touch of weed in a Vanagon down by the river. Nursing, art, finance, women's studies, pre-med, agriculture, education, equestrian studies--I've mourned my missed path in each of those fine fields.

Thanks to this weekend, I have one more major to add to my list of regrettable college 'should haves.'

Film Making.

Behold:




Is it just me, or does everyone feel like they're on the verge of a really big break every time they post some crap on YouTube? Either way, I think I'm pretty famous today.

I loved every second of that video! I love that you too have wasted hours worrying about eleventy billion college majors and paths of your life and I feel you can confidently put filmmaking down on that list. A. your house is very nice! B. James can dance! C. love the new name for the Church D. why couldn't I have served my mission in your area? I would have converted zero people. Great video!

Church membership is definitely going to rise because of that one. I can feel it.

Krista said...

LOLOL! I don't know what I like most - the admiration of the church dude that can bust a move, the fact that James is a born natural, or the fact that Gracie must think all of you are just plain nuts!!

Elizabeth said...

Grandma said...

Dad loved it,too:))) Gracie has never looked so interested in anything else as this:))

Cheryl said...

That was awesome, Amy! You definitely should have majored in film making. And who knew that the elders can dance?!
