this was my first week back to school and i can already tell the semester is going to be awesome... there really isn't anything i love more than school (weird, right? you'd think someone like me would never say something like that..). my classes are great, the people are great, i'm making friends, and i'm just really excited for the next few months! i'm taking 13 credit hours, which is more than i've been taking in the past. i'm nervous but, i know passing my classes isn't going to be a problem. it's just going to take up a lot of my time. plus i have service learning hours, among all of the homework and class time, that i have to fit in the semester. but i'm really looking forward to that... working in an actual classroom is going to be awesome and scary and exciting! everything is becoming more real!
other than school, i've just been hanging out with my friends and doing crazy things 17 year olds should be doing! i don't have much time left until i'm (legally) an "adult" so, i'm trying to live it up!
kaley and i have been going to the temple once a week for the past little while and it's been a really cool experience. i had only gone to the temple once before when i was 12, so when i went the first time i was really, really nervous haha. each time after has been easier and better, and i always look forward to going. it's nice to have a friend who's willing to do something like that with me! most people would want to spend their time doing other things, but i love that i have a friend who's willing to take time out of their day to help me get back into the things i need to be doing!
also, i got a calling in church a few weeks ago. i'm a sunbeams teacher. it's 100% crazy and fun and stressful haha. i love the kids i teach already, but they are... rowdy little suckers. but, if i want to be a teacher then what better way to get practice?
so, anyways... life is real real good! :) i'm constantly doing homework or studying or with my friends or at a football or baseball game... i feel guilty right now for writing this and not doing homework haha. but, i needed a break.
oh also! tucker comes home next week.... like from his mission.. that he left on two years ago. what the heeeck?? that is totally crazy. haha i can't believe that. i'm freaking excited. and jack hits 8 months in the next few days. time flies!
i found this shirt the other day. i was pretty excited about it!
