Spring Break


My Spring Break doesn't officially start until Monday, but I figure since I don't have classes today, today is the day! I am busy, like I haven't been in months. I work 5 nights a week, and go to school 2 days for 8 hours. I have had a midterm exam once a week since the 11th of February. I have never studied so much in my life. I've made new friends and for that I am grateful. This Spring Break is the first that I haven't been able to go home and I am sad. I have a ton of stuff to do. I need to write two book reports, 1 long essay, rewrite 1 paper, and write a another analytical essay. Believe it or night, thats not because I procrastinated, thats if I prepare early. All these things plus more exams are due after Spring Break. There is light at the end of the tunnel, however, I only have 5 weeks left of school. Summer!!

I started working with a personal trainer at the first of March. I do weight training 3 hours a week. She has taught me some really good techniques and I feel stronger already. I'm hoping this is the thing that will help me get to a healthier state. As the temperatures get warmer I look forward to spending alot of time outside.

I also have begun looking through my fabric collection, and am planning on making some quilts on my own. I plan on starting one this weekend. My friend Brittany comes home from Honduras on Thursday, its hard for me. I feel like after this all my connections with my mission in Honduras will be gone. Its a harsh reality, and I feel like it was all a dream long ago. I got the chance to drive home for one day this week, and participate in Missionary week. It was a great opportunity. My Seminary teacher Bro. Doria, wants me to think of becoming a Seminary teacher. I don't think that I am spritual enough to do that. I will have have to look into the program here at the U. I love being with the youth, and I know that they do need many positive mentors that love them. I have alot of prayer and soul searching in front of me. I am really trying to figure out what to do in the future, and as the end of my university grows near, I am becoming even more anxious to determine my plan. Alas, I have no idea. Nothing seems to come to me and say "do this." I very much look forward to figuring out my life. Enjoy your Spring as much as I plan too. Warm weather means a happy whitney. Adios
