Why is it that we have to trade in the fun things we did when we were kids for the responsibilities of adulthood? Why can't we just have both. I don't think you can ever be too old for a late night bonfire, or a picnic at the park.
Life right now for me is trying to figure out this new growing up thing. Thanks to the mission I have my priorities straight. Church--> Family--> School--> Job--> Fun.
@Church: I have a great calling. I don't think I could ask for any better place to serve. Teacher's quorum adviser is one of the funnest and rewarding callings one could have. I love watching the 1 teacher I have progress in the gospel and scouts. You can see how it effects his life. Home teaching is one of the funnest things I have ever got to experience, I love my families and am so excited to know that I am doing what I am supposed to.
@Family: With my dad passing away and all, it has been kinda hard. I think I put on a really good face and try not to let my emotions get the best of me, but I fail every once and a while. It's hard when people ask how you are doing. Do you really tell them, "Horribly I miss him terribly." I've found it a lot easier to say, "We are doing good!" At least then they don't give you any lectures :). I'm glad I'm with my mom though. She is the best example to me. I'm getting to learn everything I can from her while I'm still at home.
@School: After a lot of prayer and promptings it just didn't feel right to be leaving Vegas to go to Idaho. I visited Rachel a couple weeks ago and it just wasn't the place for me. I felt that my place was at home by my mother. A place where I had a job, scholarship, and free room and board haha. CSN meet the greatest student you'll ever receive!!
@Job: I don't think I could be any more lucky. Not only did a land a super sweet job (Thank you mission blessings) but I am working for the man who has been more role model for nearly 11 years. If you can't count that has been since I was 10. I'm working for Cameron Steele at AMS Insurance. I couldn't be more excited.
@Fun: Finally after 2 years of hard work its time to enjoy what God has given me. The great thing about fun, is that it can be anywhere. Fun isn't just something you do when your done with everything else, fun is something that can be found while doing everything else. I'm excited to be able to go get Slurpee's and Sushi with friends (not at the same time).
I have a great girlfriend. She is so amazing. I am so glad I have such a good friend. She helped me through some of the hardest times that I have ever lived through. She's there whenever I need her and always makes me smile. She's super cute too! I love her a lot.
Growing up is tough. I miss being young, but getting old happens, but it takes skill to still be young! Life is epic so live it up!
