Waiting On The Call / Teach Me How to Blog

  So this is my attempt at blogging. Bear with me cool kids, I'm tryin'. It only took me 78 minutes to figure out how to make one but hey, babysteps my friends. Babysteps.

My papers were just submitted recently and I'm now A N X I O U S L Y waiting for a frantic call from my Mami letting me know that it's here!! I decided to serve a mission years ago along with my best friend at the time, Marlin Lopez. We were both around 17 years old and promised we'd do it together!
   Ever since then I have had the desire to serve a mission and knew I would. When conference rolled around years later and it was announced that 19 year old girls could serve missions, Marlin was engaged and I was diggin' the single life at Utah State! I knew that if I wanted to save myself from some hunk sweeping me off my feet into marriage I needed to go, and go FAST.
 I immediately started making my bishops and doctors appointments so I could leave after my first semester. But after much prayer, thought, 3 availability changes, and several pints ice cream, I have decided to finish my freshman year at USU, work hard all summer and set my availability for August. I am too excited to find out where I'll be serving!!
  I am also preparing to keep from drowning in a pool of my own sorrow as I rid myself of my short shorts and summer dresses. #ThingsICanNeverWearAgain. It will be a painful process but one that I am happy to go through. Kind of. Not really... But I know it'll be worth it. I'll be happy about it later. Hopefully.
