I was just sitting here in the library, working my little tail off as usual, and thinking about how much I love my school. I'm so privileged to be here.

This morning in Doctrine and Covenants class we discussed the temple. The importance of attending. I was thinking about how tragic it is that so few people attend the temple here. Our teacher shared with us how small the sessions are when he works there on Tuesdays nights. I want so bad to go more, I don't understand how schoolwork takes such a prevalence in life. Don't get me wrong, an education is so important, but salvation comes first. And eventually I can work on exaltation. Baby steps.

I gotta get going, but that was just a thought.

I love C.S. Lewis.

What a day!

I'm getting used to the desktop computer, it's definitely an adjustment from Mac to PC. Sigh.

I had a good day though. Still NO luck on the job hunt, but my friend made a suggestion that I'll have to look in to. I'll have to check it out.

I'm super excited for this weekend, I hope everything goes well for, well, everyone!

Starting School

So the last 3 weeks were rather interesting, but after a fantastic visit to Utah and the final drive up to Idaho, I'm feeling pretty good. The only issue at hand: a job. It seems they may not be hiring spanish tutors anymore, but fortunately, my Spanish teach (whom I have yet to meet) is the head of the tutoring department, so I'll be able to speak with him before or after my class with him this afternoon.

Campus got confusing. There is a ton of construction and you have to know where you're going exactly to be able to get there. I feel bad for new people.

I'm really excited to be starting school. I really missed school and learning. So far this morning I've had Piano (Music 256) and Doctrine and Covenants (Rel 324), and now I'm just waiting in the Smith building for Econ Macro (Econ 111). This'll be fun. At least I have the info I need to take the Spanish Proficiency test.

Other really good thing about this semester: my Bishop. I met him for a grand total of 3 seconds, but he's really nice and I'm stoked to get to know him better. Bishop Bishop. Ha.

I can't believe I'm here right now. It's still just sort of freaking me out.

PS - Happy 4 weeks since I got home! AH!
