Well this week has been an exciting one yet very long and nerve racking. I finally started College!!!!!! I am not too sure If i should be happy about this or actually really sad because the amount of sleep I am getting just keeps decreasing since I am pretty much getting up at the same time I did for seminary 0530… Honestly I don’t know how I am awake most of the time and fully functioning when in reality
It is officially weird though being in College because I remember being in 6th grade and dreaming about going to college and being an adult when in all actuality I just want to go back to High school where I had classes with people I knew and where I can see my friends on a daily basis. You know what is great?!!! I can get credit in my Composition class for these blog posts! Talk about killing two birds with one stone. So for this semester by posts are going to be more frequent and hopefully longer, though I am not too sure if they will still make sense, and maybe I can get some new readers 🙂 There are always big pluses of being and Adult and right now the best part is seeing how much people change for the better and how the people I have known since I was small have transformed into my best friends. That includes my brothers, even if we might fight.
So on Sunday my brother had his mission farewell at our home ward and boy was it awkward. I have’nt been to my home ward in so long since I normally go to the YSA, it was even worse when I was about to get to my seat the Bishop come up to me and you get one of those classic, we need to talk, moments. To make matters worse before church was about to start I was still waiting for my parents who drove in their car and sitting next to my friend Casey when my phone went off…My parents were in a minor car accident and the car wouldn’t be able to drive to the rest of the 2 min to church. Thankfully I had enough far sight to bring my license and get my brother’s keys to the car from him. I drove to the accident freaking out, this was the second time that I drove by myself, I pretty much felt like this
Despite all the craziness that was that Sunday I am so happy that my meeting with the Bishop went way better than it normally does. The best part? we talked about starting my mission papers in a couple weeks and to make sure that I really wanted to go though with the mission. The sad part? My Sundays are about to get wayyyyyyyyy busy!!! Home ward for sacrament meeting, YSA after that then straight to Mission Prep. It will busy but I am going to enjoy every moment of it.
It is so hard to believe that my Mission papers will be started in less than a month and hopefully by December I will have my call. I found out that if I leave two days after my 19 birthday me and my brother will be getting back on the exact same day!!!! I am so happy that I will have the opportunity of being on my Mission at the same time as my brother. It is officially the start of the dream I have had since I was a little girl. Serving the Lord by being a Missionary. I couldn’t be happier about this decision that I am making to use 18 months of my life to dedicate to Heavenly Father when I have an eternity to use the blessings that I will be given because of it
Today I am going to end off the post on a slightly different note with a quote that I have come to love over the week.
“Serve every day of your mission in such a way that when you get out of bed every morning, Satan says, ‘Oh no…SHE’S AWAKE!’”
‘Till next time
