Mission Call Buddies!

My buddy Sean Byers is a way cool kid who just got his mission call. He was the first mission call opening I've been to where I knew the guy really well. A guy by the name of Neils Hazen was before that, but I only wish I knew Neils just as well. I work with Sean at the Cannon Center on MWF mornings. He is the coolest guy ever and I do look up to him. He's going to Las Vegas West English speaking! Way to be bro!

Gratitude: The Essence of Celebration

Why can't we ever just be grateful? Take the time to list out what you're thankful for, before you start
buying things and celebrating Christmas. Being grateful IS celebrating. Celebrating what you have.
Please, let lists of your personal "celebrations" be seen on this page. As mine is. Show the world
what YOU really celebrate.
Love, family, friends, a God who is always on my side and answers every prayer, my brave sister
who sets an example for me and all those around her, parents who know what it's like to be me,
and that aren't perfect (that's right, you heard me, I'm grateful for imperfect parents), my life, my body,
my roommate and my floormates (no matter how annoying and "so freshman" they might be), my
home, the Savior and His Atonement, my Uncle Mike and his family and their examples and advice
for and to me, my Nana for coming back to the church and trying so hard to be a part of it again, for
her asking me to be her ticket back after Christ, a world that underneath all the pain and sorrow and
discrimination is truly trying to make things right, even if they go about it the wrong way, teachers
who know who I am and truly care about me and my success by making it challenging enough
to help me grow while helping me to understand, an environment filled with the Spirit and enough
opposition to remind me where I need to be on a spiritual level (sometimes it feels like too much
opposition)... etc... the list is too long. I am grateful. That's all I really need to say. Thank you.

Book 1- Reinitiation

Yes, that's right. You're reading correctly. I am trying to get out another chapter soon. Can someone remind me if I put out chapter 2? I can't find it in my archive for some reason. Or did I even have anyone read my chapters yet at all? Anyway, over Thanksgiving I am hoping to get chapter three and maybe even four off the shelf. I'm so busy, so this post is really just to tell everyone that I am going to get writing again soon. So keep your eyes open. Character info will be coming through too. :D If you have any questions or requests for me, let me know. Thanks!

Swim, Much?

Hot tubbing in the Newspaper. Oh yeah, baby.
John, my roommate, shoved me down. I got him back.
Shoving the newspaper out of the room it was stuffed in (it was a prank from before) into the hallway, so Christian (the guy in the back left) could sleep without it stinking like newspaper in his room.
We had WAY too much fun with this newspaper.
And there i am. Peakin' my face out of the mass of phonebook pages. Aww... so cute! Gotta love College life. When your head is overloaded from studying American history, and you've been cramming and you have an hour before you go take the test, you just have to get away and swim in some current events. Best study break ever.
