How Far I've Come

I've come far enough to know that watermelon is suppose to red, not yellow. I was unaware that it came in different colors. I sampled the melon, but admit that I like red better. This one has a really sweet taste. It looks cool if nothing else.

I've come far enough to welcome home Nicole. She got back from serving in the Hong Kong mission this week. She gave an amazing talk. It was so good to see her. We exchanged letters during our missions, but its nothing like talking in person. I look forward to many visits with her.

Yes, the goof troop minus one. We missed Pahulu. These are the sisters from my district in the MTC. Hermana Kylie Brown, and Hermana Rachel Jorgensen. We had lunch together on friday, and laughed about the good times in the MTC. They both served in the Barcelona, Spain mission.

As a side note, I have officially hit the two month mark. Yes, I have been home that long. It seems like yesterday, and then again it seems like forever. I still struggle with my yearnings to go back, but realize I must be home. Things are going good, and I know Heavenly Father will bless me. I got a job last week, working as a private tutor. The lady said she could feel a special glow about me. I guess its my firm desire to work with kids, and help motivate them. I will be teaching Spanish, Language Arts and History. I feel very lucky to have good job. I still am adjusting to the whole roommate, college life thing, and I know I'll make it. Luckily my roommates are sane individuals, and don't keep me up extraordinarily late. I love a good bedtime. As for school, my professors are still trying to indoctrinate us with their ideals, but what would the U be without that. It keeps me interested, because I refuse to be confused by their ramblings or rants. I love Utah, and I don't care if they think I'm a dumb girl with no idea what the world is about. I know what my world is about, and its about passing their class and moving on. I will love school, I just pray i start loving it this week. As for other news, I'm drawn a blank. Endure Well.

I am so happy that you got a job. Please send along some more details. How people will you be tutoring? Who exactly are you working for? When do you work? I love details. Details, details.
