Let the dense archive begin!

Starting this blog has been a long time coming. I still feel like I am lagging behind when it comes to understanding technology (reading posts from twitter gives me a headache, I have a love/hate relationship with iPhones) since coming home from my mission. But now is the time! I will probably need your help so I don't seem totally incompetent. One small step for everyone else, one giant leap for Gretchen!

What has really kept me out of the blogging world for so long is lack of a catchy blog title. I took a trip down to Jacob Lake last weekend, which meant a long car ride with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows on tape. Listening to over 15 hours of HP can get anyone into a creative mood. I took two concepts from Harry Potter and incorporated them into my title. Can you guess what they are?


You can't get much nerdier than that.
I should have started a blog a long time ago.

I hope that you, dear reader, will accompany me as I venture into the blogosphere for the season. This is my first summer home since highschool, and I haven't decided how I feel about it yet; but I am sure there is a lot in store for me.

Oh, I'm just quivering with excitement!


  1. i'm quivering too.

    this blog is thrilling to me!

  2. Gretchen,
    I am so glad that I found your blog!! Love the title- your blog is great! You sound like you are doing well- no you are not nerdy! I am excited to hear what you have to say. Please don't spoil LOST for me. The movers came Fri. & packed up all of our stuff (menos 4 suitcases worth) It feels so strange to think about returning home. We will be leaving shortly after the Calderon's (de Ecuador) arrive. We get to SLC JULY 1 @ about 11pm (I think). Pdte. knows all the arrangements. Write back to my gmail account, ok? !Hasta luego!
    Love you,
    Hna. Maynes
