why i've been AWOL

i do like blogging. i really do. i like writing. i do!

i found out i liked writing on the mission. weird, right? not poetry or novels or anything like that. this kind of writing. bloggy-type writing. i got to do it every week with my email home on the mission. i had a captive audience and pretty much the best material anyone could ask for. paraguay and the mission provided for some pretty entertaining stories. turns out my real life right now provides for some pretty entertaining stories too. 

so why have i been AWOL for like the past million years? what has happened since my last post that was like back in FEBRUARY? 

i graduated from byu. (yaay!!)
vacayed in AR for 2.5 weeks.
started nursing school at u of u.
had the busiest summer semester imaginable.
almost died taking my pharmacology class. that class was a beast.
3 hours commuting every day. yikes. made for good study time though.
tried to maintain a fun social life for my last little bit in provo. summer in provo is just too fun.
i invested a lot of emotion dating a boy who told me he loved me. it didn't work out but that's for the best.
oh and i moved to salt lake. 

so needless to say, i've had a few things on my plate. but now things are a lot calmer. my semester is much more mellow. no 3 hours every day of commuting. no staying up way too late and waking up way too early. no more pharmacology (that in itself makes everything calmer). and i found myself missing writing. 

it's not the great american novel or anything like that. if anything, it's just the weird, jumbled ramblings of my random mind. but it helps me feel good.

  1. I love reading your writing and jumbled ramblings so please continue! Reading your emails when you were on the mission were my favorite thing!
