well hello there. just wanted to give you a little update on my life.it really is slow goin...i mean, there's stuff going on, but nothing of consequence. i don't have pictures, and probably wont until i'm moved into my new place. then, trust me, i will unload my camera and you'll have more pictures to view than you'll know what to do with. but right now, as you know, grandma doesn't have internet. i don't know how to blog pictures from my phone. there lies the problem.
i get to move into my apartment on october first. i'm a little excited about it. sometimes i lay in bed at night and think about life in my new apartment. i get so excited i can't fall asleep. that may sound silly, but let me remind you that i have not had my own apartment since april. that will be 5 months that i've been transient/homeless/living out of other peoples closets/not fully unpacking my bathroom kind of living. i'm very excited to get settled and start the "roomate life" again. not reporting to people. not having to worry about what time i'll get home. not having a place to stay up late and watch movies with friends. maybe this makes me sound ungrateful for my current living situation. nothing could be further from the truth. it's been wonderful living with grandma, and i'm lucky for the time i got to stay at my sisters house. at this age, i'm anxious to be in a more independent living situation.
my job. its wonderful. i love the people i get to work with. i love the new things i'm learning. have i mentioned i have alot to learn. i mean, ALOT. it can be overwhelming at times, but everyone is so good about answering questions and helping me out. all i can say is that we have fantastic doctors who fix peoples eyes. it's incredible to me the things they do there and the care they have for patients. i have learned so much in such a short time. i can't wait to learn more and contribute to the care of the patients. i'm a lucky girl. plus, they have these sugar cookies over in the university cafeteria that are to die for. what? please tell me to stop the maddness.
i have a ward. i love it. i got a calling today. i don't know that i understand what it is...i mean, i know it's relief society, and that's enough. i've missed relief society (after a summer of ward hopping due to efy). i went to a ward campout this weekend. i love being involved in my ward. we have fhe tomorrow. ward temple night this week. yee haw. welcome to salt lake.
my efy boss posted a video on facebook - a review of the summer. gosh, we are funny people. i couldn't help but watch it and laugh out loud. it also made me realize i miss the hoedown throwdown.
