Missionary

Since I've been here in college, life moves fast! This Wednesday one of my life long dreams will open in a quiet meeting with my bishop. I will begin my missionary papers for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I suppose my impatience with waiting until my 19th birthday will be put on hold while I fill out my paperwork, but the impatience will probably be focused until April 7th when my papers are eligible to be sent into Salt Lake City. I have been so excited to serve a mission, and I hate waiting. I've been counting down since my 18th birthday for this occasion, and it is 3 days away, and my papers are can be sent in 39 days! I've even found my missionary scripture I would like on my plaque! Alma 29: 9

-"I know that which the Lord hath commanded me, and I glory in it. I do not glory of myself, but I glory in that which the Lord hat commanded me; yea, and this is my glory, that perhaps I may be an instrument in the hands of God to bring some soul to repentance; and this is my joy."

39 days until my papers get sent in! I'll keep everyone posted on the missionary process!

English

I'm sitting here in English pretending to pay attention, but it's just not happening. My English professor has the most intense tangents. I thought my 12th grade English teacher was bad when she went on a tangent about Tiger Woods and gang bangers. We are currently reading the book, "The Lucifer Effect," which is about the Stanford prison experiment put on my Dr. Phillip Zimbardo (It's a pretty interesting book, I would recommend it). Anyway we were discussing about one of the "prisoners" in the book and went off on a tangent of President Obama's latest screw up in his presidency. Then suddenly he threw a wrench in the process and changed topics completely by discussing the end of the world in 2012. 5 minutes later he brought up a new topic: Female athletes in romantic relationships with sociopaths. Finally he brought up his latest topic: Evil babies are born more on Tuesdays than any other day of the week! Needless to say I don't ever have a dull moment in my English 1010 class... oh wait... It's a hour and 20 minutes of pure dullness. You'd think these random tangents could be something exciting to talk about right? Nope... Also here is the latest update in his thought process: Having the impulses to throw your clothes at random people. In specifics your underwear.....
