And now it's time for:
"Things in China I Just Never Quite Understood"
I am so lazy! I’m done with my field visits and I’m only working one day a week right now. IT’S AMAZING. I’m taking the time to recuperate after a full year and a half of straight school and work. I really should be getting caught up in school work, but here’s the thing; I don’t feel like it. My goal is to have everything done by Saturday night, and then I’m skipping school Wed, and spending almost all of next week at home with the family. This brings me joy inside.
The Lord really knows when you finally get some free time in your life. Just before all this settling down of activities occurred, I was called to be the Gospel Doctrine teacher on top of a Relief Society teacher at church. So far so good. It definitely keeps me up on my scripture study.
P.S.- I miss my friends! I haven’t gotten to go out west in a year because my school switched to semesters (meaning no more long weekends), and every break amazing opportunities would arise. I’m coming! I’m hoping to hop on a plane before New Years and celebrate with them!

Then we decided to walk into town to the park across from Kroger. On our way we were going past the road with the art museum! I was like “Hey! Let’s go!”…and we did! We were a little nervous because we had nothing on us and the sign said it was a dollar for students. Then we saw the fine print “Free on Fridays!!!” How lucky did we get?
After that we were back on our way to the park. Once we got there we looked around and to our surprise the swings had been taken out. We are pretty good at improvising so we still had fun.
Yeah, Andrea is wearing scrubs (just in case you were wondering why she was all decked out in purple).
Later I was off to
Monday night I drove home to wake up at 6am to go vote with my mom. Tuesday morning when we were leaving the house I heard the strangest and most unique noise. Mom said it was the rooster my dad brought home. I never laughed so hard over a chicken. You'd have to hear it. After a trip to the polls I had the whole day to myself at my home. I went for a walk on the trails, and just felt at home. I love it there so much. I just can’t see myself living in the city forever. That night was bitter sweet when the election was done. I’m just glad
This Saturday was my last Saturday at work. That broke my heart. I love my job, and wish there was enough time in the day to keep it. I’m quitting to be able to spend my final Christmas break at home with family and to travel to see old friends. Also, I’m hopefully student teaching next semester. I’ll have NO time to work.
