its that last day of September

i have a 10 pm deadline looming over my head.  so i'll make this quick.

i find myself staring at the curvy lines of the fake wood at the provo library.

gasp, i think i found my new 'place.' i already feel inspired by the bound books at my side, and the clear desk before me. sigh, i love libraries. and i'm still wondering how i'll be able to fit one in my home someday. its just one of those basic necessities. every home needs a kitchen, a bathroom, and a library.

tonight, i went venturing back to September 2012 on the blog...and i found my sophomore college-self, living the same life i do today. i just have lived different experiences.

today, marks two months home from Argentina. and you bet i admit shamelessly that i think of Argentina, people, companions, streets, houses, moments, lessons every day. its still my life.

but, i'm in 2014 now. sigh. reality and i are still figuring things out.

on a completely unrelated note, i feel so happy that i was able to teach the women of my church on Sunday. this is the first calling i've ever had in my life--that wasn't a musical calling. we learned about improving our personal prayers.

one, i love the gospel. two, i love people. three, i love learning about the gospel with people. so. teaching let me feel true happiness.

so, when my tests are done, and homework is mostly finished, i'll get around to sharing a new thought or two about prayer. maybe it won't help you get into heaven, but it just makes me love prayer alittle more.

  1. I'm glad you value libraries. You will always be learning with that love. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on prayer.
