Good Morning Guys,
The clouds went away and it has warmed up to 48 degrees at night and about 70 degrees during the day. This weekend was really busy and very fulfilling. This weekend really got me excited. Friday I went to Salt Lake city with my sister and we went to the very nice Gateway Mall. Saturday was well overbooked and I had to make some decisions. I ended up doing service for about three hours in the morning and then I went to the football game.
Riding your bicycle to football games allows you leave later and come back quicker. Plus you get fantastic parking right next to the stadium. After the game was fun to relax and enjoy the beautiful day. Sunday was also pretty busy. Sunday afternoon we held a 17th Ward Reunion. The 17th Ward was my church group during my freshman year of college and since most of the guys have returned from their missions we got together and held a potluck. It was fun to meet with many friends who have been all over the planet and also to meet up with many of the girls who went off and got married and brought their husbands and babies to the reunion. It was a great gathering.
Then after the reunion we left and went to what is called Ward Prayer. It is an activity where the ward (my church group) will get together in the lodge (the club house located at our apartment complex) and we will have a spiritual thought, get-to-know-you activity and a prayer.
My classes are going very well at the moment and I don’t want to brag, but I have gotten 100% on my calculus test and quizzes that I have taken. My other classes are going well also. I hope to have a successful semester.
I was so full of energy and excitement today. Everything seems to be finding its balance. Things have been difficult but some how everything has just worked out. My classes and work seem to be working out. I have gotten into a routine and all I am trying to do now is maximize my efficiency (for those in math or economics, can you can make me an equation?). Things are good. There are a ton of things that I am going to try to do here in the future. I am full thanks to my friends and family who have been very helpful and insightful. I am keeping a very positive attitude and just charging forward like normal.
Football – this was taken Saturday at the football game. I was seated on the 7th row. The game was fantastic and here are some of our cheerleaders. BYU sent Utah State home without a single point.
Activity – this was actually the ward prayer. I shouldn’t be called a party, but it was a good activity to socialize and meet more people. You can see my roommate Mike talking with a nice girl (Carolyn) in the back of the picture.
Have a great night. Please keep in touch and hope that my letters are not an annoyance. Suggestions are appreciated. Love you guys much and hope talk with you soon.
