Surprises and My BYU experience

I did not think that getting up for an eight or nine o' clock class would be so difficult. I had early morning classes all through high school and it was fine, but now it is a little bit challenging. I just want to stay in bed! Sometimes 11 feels too early. But it is good for me because I really have to make myself do it. There is nobody there to tell me what to do and I love being able to make that decision on my own. I feel so good when I push myself to do something i really do not want to do.
I was also really nervous to live with two girls I did not know. I have been surprised at how easy it has been and how well we get along! I was nervous they would not like me or that they would really get on my nerves. But that has not happened at all. We all get a long really well and are becoming really good friends. I am really excited to get to know them more.
The BYU experience has been nothing but good for me. I am finding things out about myself I never knew. Also I love having the gosple involved with learning. At first it was really strange, but it has actually really helped me. It is nice to be able to be open about religion with out thinking that you are going get in trouble for mentioning it. Byu has been a lot of fun so far. I am only hoping it gets better!

My Adventure

I have been sick this whole week. I have tonsilitus and a fever of 102.9 I was not really able to have an adventure. But Thursday morning I was able to do lots of tricks into the foam pit even though I was sick, so that is what I am counting as my adventure! And I met a lot of the gynastics team which I have ALWAYS wanted to do!

The Healing Pool

This picture means a lot to me. Everytime I come here I always stop and look at this picture. To me the word patience pops into my head. Each time I look at this picture it means something different. At time in my life it reminds me that I need to do things on the Lords time, not my own time. Also to be obsevent, i may be recieving blessings or answers to a prayer but becasue i am not paying attenttion or listening to the Lord I may miss what He is trying to tell me, or not realize the blessings the Lord gives me.
