Why I won’t be serving a mission
*Disclaimer* This post is not meant to be rude, controversial, or judgmental. It’s just my thoughts that I’m hoping will help others.
This doesn’t mean I don’t have a testimony of my church, this doesn’t mean I don’t love God. In fact, it means I love him enough to obey him, even when I don’t understand. It doesn’t mean I’m not good enough to serve a mission, it doesn’t mean I wouldn’t be good at sharing the gospel, and it doesn’t even mean that I don’t want to go. I do want to. But I’m not.
Father’s Day and things
Friday the 13th wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be! I finished up my last class of spring semester (YAY, just final projects and tests left to do!) Seriously I wasn’t sure if I was going to survive this class. It involved doing two news stories a week, on top of the regular classwork, my other class, work, and being a college student. All in all, very stressful but very good. I learned so much and I’m really happy with how everything turned out.
So now the rest of my summer is filled with:
Working (Take a listen to The Matt Townsend Show to hear what I do)
Internship (I start TOMORROW)
Playing (I have a lot of bucket list to complete)
Family time (I think I’m going home almost every weekend this month for one thing or another)
Movies (I have a mile-long list of things I still need to see)
Reading (Is a book a week too much?)
And being very, very happy.
Life is grand folks. Anyone who tells you differently is selling something.
No for Father’s Day. My dad is one of the greatest people in the world. I am so lucky to have him in my life, and I wouldn’t trade him for anything. I love you Dad, more than anything! Thank you for being the person who showed me what I deserved from guys, and for always pushing me to do my very best. I love you FOREVER!
Why am I so bad at blogging….
I am the worst. I had planned to post a big long thing for my sister’s birthday and blog a lot more and be better…hello two weeks later and I haven’t posted a thing!
So here’s what’s been going on:
So first of all…MY SISTER IS 17 YEARS OLD!! Darling Olivia is such an amazing person. She is so caring and wonderful, and I’m so lucky I got to be her sister, and friend. I love you Livi Loo, you are my sunshine and make me smile and I wouldn’t be who I am without you. I hope year 17 is just delightful and full of laughter and smiles.
Also in the past few weeks I have been:
Missing this best friend of mine. He’s off being the best EFY Counselor out there, and having way too much fun!
Working my tail off for school. Just two more days. I can do it…right?
Losing half of the pictures/texts on my phone. So that was a bummer. Back up your phone ladies and gents.
Attending lots of ward events with these two, and sometimes they even match!
Visiting Catholic mass for a class assignment, it was wonderful by the way.
Practicing to float the Teton River with my family by going fishing. Something about fishing makes summer real. Also. Thoughts on my hair….I’m thinking of chopping it like this!
Seeing bits and pieces of my amazing family.
Writing weekly letters to my favorite missionary.
Working at BYU Radio and loving every second.
Gearing up to start my internship NEXT WEEK.
Visiting with friends, attending bonfires, reading lots of news, trying to find time to read books and go to the pool, living and laughing with Court and Rachel, blasting music in the car, wearing too many blazers, meeting all kinds of interesting people, and mainly just loving life.
So happy June so far my friends! I promise after my classes are over I’ll be a zillion times better at blogging. And if I’m not…well…punch me in the arm.
I love you dearly, and hope you are all having a fantastic summer!
Happy Wednesday everyone!
Last thought…I’m considering changing my blog title, theme, general idea….to something other than about being a redhead. Let me know what you think:)
