It's been a little while, I figured I should get back in the habit before this blog meets the same fate as my last two. Today was a pretty awesome day. I didn't have to work, and don't have to work for the next two days. This works especially well for me, because when I only have Saturday free, I feel guilty if I don't cram it full of things I don't normally get to do during the week. But when I have Friday AND Saturday off I'm a little more lenient with myself. I got up at 8, watched "Bones" online while eating cereal in bed, then went jogging to a park that is about 2 miles away. It was about 10 at this point and the weather was BEAUTIFUL! I played on the swings and sat in the sun and listened to pretty music and just enjoyed time to myself. I then walked the two miles back home because all my sitting had cooled me down to the point where my body did not want to pick up the pace again, and I was okay with that. It was nice to just walk and not be in a hurry, not caring if I made the lights at the intersections or not because I had nowhere to be. I tidied my room and made a trip to the BYU bookstore to get some supplies for projects I'm working on. I sat and worked in my nice clean room with the blinds open and sun coming in both windows and it was awesome. Thank goodness for simple days where nothing big happens, the sun shines brightly, and you are able to do things that feel inherently good.
In other news: I am registered for Winter semester! I am so excited I can't stand it! The closer it gets the less nervous I get about the future and just want to jump in head first. I HATE transitions more than just about anything, and I have nothing BUT transition to look forward to at work for the remainder of my time there (granted, it's my own fault) but whenever the in-between period hits I just want to hit fast-forward.
I am oh so slowly but surely starting to make friends within my ward. Making friends is hard, and I have an extra-hard time with it for some reason, but every day I like my ward more. Well, it's getting late so I will update some more later!
