I'm about to come out of hiding.

Don't worry blogging world. Soon i will be back at school and i will return to you. Hopefully with a post of pictures from my summer adventures...

Not that anyone really reads this haha.

but if you DO! here's a quote for you for today. :)

"Don't you quit. You keep walking, you keep trying, there is help and happiness ahead. Some blessings come soon. Some come late. Some don't come until heaven. But for those who embrace the gospel of Jesus Christ, they come. It will be alright in the end. Trust God and believe in good things to come."--Elder Jeffrey R. Holland ♥

Life is beautiful.

Is going to the gym productive at all?

Here's the thing. I went back to the gym today. Which is probably good because i've been paying for it and i didn't go at all last month. But the thing is...after doing 75 flights of stairs on th stair master, 8 miles of bike riding, and who knows how much rowing (on my favorite rowing machine)...I burned probably only about 300 calories according to the machines. Only to  come home STARVING and eat everything in sight....So my question it really worth it to go to the gym? I'm starting to wonder haha.

But honestly. The gym is great. It makes you feel good even if you come home and eat twice as many calories as you burned, so i will keep going even if i'm eating more than i burn. That's 300 free calories right?

Journal Writing...

Today i rediscovered the wonderful blessings that come from journal writing. I admit i am not always good at it. I usually go about a month of REALLY great journaling...and then i don't do it for 3 months (or maybe 6). And then i'll do it again. and then not...etc. But today I took out my journal and i started reading through some old things that i had written in the past year.
I've been going through a little rough patch, but going through my journal i was able to find some things that i'd written and learned in the past year that have helped me. It's kind of funny thinking that something you write can help you feel better later, but it's true. Because really the only person who can make you happy is yourself. So rereading things like your testimony or experiences you had in the past are really great ways to help you feel better.
Anyway, I just thought i would share how good it is to keep a journal.

Life is Wonderful.

I'm so glad the weather is getting better.
And I LOVE this video of Carrie Underwood singing How Great Thou Art!

I feel like Peter...

As i've said before, my absolute favorite story is the one of Peter walking on water. Right now i feel as though I am being distracted by the Storms of life. I feel like i was walking on water...towards Christ; Doing everything I should be doing, and then life took a turn and the storms started. Then, just for a moment, I let the storms distract me from what is really important. But as always, Christ isn't going to let us sink, he always pulls us up before we drown.

Thank goodness for Easter to remind us that there is someone who knows what we go through. Who is here to help us get through the storms of life.

“In our hour of deepest sorrow, we can receive profound peace from the words of the angel that first Easter morning: ‘He is not here: for he is risen.’”
“As one of His special witnesses on earth today, this glorious Easter Sunday, I declare that this is true, in His sacred name—even the name of Jesus Christ, our Savior—amen.”
—President Thomas S. Monson

It's been a while

I haven't blogged in a really long time. And I don't even know where to start. So...I don't think i will yet. haha

Okay so I've been awake since about six this morning. I'm PRETTY sure my call is in a mail truck right now waiting to be delivered to my house!

I feel like I've been waiting forever haha. But at the same time I'm not ready to open it yet!

Anyway I'm going to go try and do some things to keep myself busy but I guess I can update you all on my life before i do that.

I'm working right now 3 days a week at a flooring company. I'm the receptionist on Mondays and then I work back in the accounting department Tuesdays and Wednesdays making copies and scanning things and filing things. It's a pretty good job and the people are all super nice so it's been good! Still trying to sell my apartment contract because the girl who wanted to buy it never ended up doing that! Shoot. Oh well. I still am able to get the money I need for my mission so it's all good!

What else? Well, I joined a gym. I've wanted to do this for a really long time but never had access to doing it because either i lived too far away and didn't have a way to get there, or I was just too lazy. But I've really been trying to get healthy, so i finally did it last week and I've been going mostly every day except a few when i didn't have an extra hour for that. It's been good and it gives me something to do while I'm at home.

Anyway, that is about it in my life. Work, mission, gym....yep. haha.

I'm so excited!

I hope they call me on a an hour or two.....


Life is Beautiful.

I hope they call me on a mission...

in a week or two or three.... (hopefully one)
I hope by then i will be ready
to teach and preach and work
as missionaries do....

this song has been stuck in my head all day.
Wonder why?!

I'm just getting more and more excited/nervous/excited every day. And the more I think about it the more i realize this is what i need to be doing right now. I wonder why this decision was ever so hard for me? Well I know why it was, but it shouldn't have been so hard because this definitely feels right.

One more week...i hope!
You better come back here on Thursday night to see if i got it!

So SO excited!

Life is beautiful.

My mission papers...

are almost done!! Everything is actually DONE i just have to get the bishop and stake president to push the SUBMIT buttons and then they'll be on their way!

I am so excited/nervous/just excited about it!

Probably 3 weeks from now i will know where i'm going! That's so exciting.

Where do you think i will go?

My mom printed out a list of all the different missions today. I decided i would love to go spanish speaking because i just think it'd be really useful to know spanish.

But Italy, Greece, and Africa are also high up on my list. Although i heard there are not many sisters in Africa

But stateside would be good too.
I don't know!

Everyone keeps saying Temple Square. So maybe i won't be going too far.
I'm just excited :)

Is something that sometimes i feel took me a long time to find. I think I used to think that things had to be going a certain way for life to be good, for me to be happy. But I've found in the past little while that it really doesn't matter how life is going, it matters what YOU are doing with what you've been given and how you are viewing what you've been given.
Life is just great.

And i just can't help myself from getting so excited when i think about things coming up :)
