Before I start, guess what!!!!!!! In one month from today, I will be entering the MTC!!!! In Peru!!!! Sorry just super excited! So last week I talked about finding your own “batman” thing, did you find one??? If not, you will eventually! And I hope you’re still doing good deeds!!! Okay here’s my week!
So Monday I went to school, and I had my First Aid class, which I love and get epic stories from, and this week she told us this super funny story! If you’re the guy in this story, I’m so sorry, just know I’m not laughing at you, I’m laughing with you! So here’s the story (I’ll tell it like I’m my teacher): “So one day I’m working out at Gold’s Gym, and I’m on the stair stepper. There’s this guy next to me on the treadmill who’s getting married that weekend, and wanted to lose some weight. So I’m doing my thing, when all this sudden, this guy collapses, while he’s running, and hits the wall!! Everyone goes running over to him to make sure he’s okay, and he just says “Yeah I’m fine”, gets back up, and keeps running. Five minutes later, it happens again, and he gets right back up and keeps going! At this point, I’m silently laughing and holding back tears, because this guy just doesn’t know when to stop. So he falls a third time, the manager comes over and says “Go home”. Turns out the guy was super dehydrated, and he had all these scraps down the side of his face from falling on the treadmill!!”. Now just picture you looked like for your wedding day! Hahaha! Well I hope that gave you all a good laugh!
Monday night was really cool. This girl in my stake served her mission in Cusco, Peru, and came over to talk to me. I was happy to finally get some of my questions answered! It was so amazing! It helped me really get an idea for what I was going to be doing! I can’t wait to meet with her again, and make sure I’m on the track, with stuff I need, and with my Spanish! Tuesday my roommate performed in this dance thingy… I don’t really know what to call it, but two of her good friends came to watch her and we had so much fun! She did a dance to ‘Don’t Stop Believing!” and “I Dreamed A Dream”, and both were super good! I can’t wait to go to her concert in April! Afterwards we went to IHOP and my roommate ended up giving out her number to our waiter… unfortunately, nothing happened, but fortunately, what happened to me didn’t happen to her! Thursday is IMPORTANT! My roommate and I are having a competition. What kind of person would YOU prefer to date? A Batman fan, or a dancer?? PLEASE SEND ME YOUR THOUGHTS ANYWAY YOU CAN!! It’s a competition! It all started on Thursday… You know what? That story’s too long. Just answer the question haha. On Thursday, my roommate, a good friend, and I all went to the temple. I love going to the temple every week! It’s so refreshing! Afterward we went to Red Mango, super good. Saturday, I went home to Sandy, colored eggs (I made an egg that “looks” like me, a cusco/rainbow egg, and a “tribal egg” (P.S. Family if you’re reading this, don’t destroy my eggs yet!!! I want to take a picture!)… Anyways…), then I watched Breaking Dawn Part 2. Now before you get all “Oh so you’re one of them!!!!” on me, hear me out. I watched it because of one reason… There’s a scene where they show what the future could possible be like, and some of the dumb vampires and werewolves die. Yes it’s true and it’s amazing. It’s not real, but I waited so long, just to see some of them die. I was literally yelling at the screen: “YESSSS!!!!!!!!!!!! KILL EDWARD!!!! HE DESERVES IT!!! YES!!!!”, so that’s my reasoning. Today was great too, I went to a girl in my old ward’s farewell, which was super good, she’s going to Brazil. Then I drove all the way back to Orem to listen to my roommates super good talk about her conversion. Afterwards, I hung out with some of my friends in the ward, which was super fun, because we played telestrations, which left us all crying in the end, and ate homemade fries! Love my ward!
Now I’ve been so torn trying to decide what to write about today. Nothing really stood out to me this week, but there’s still so much I could say. Okay… I think I figured it out! Here it goes! So this week it’s really begun to hit me how close I am to leaving, and I feel like there’s still so much for me to do! I mean, there’s Festival of Colors, Boyce Avenue on the 13th (if you want to come, please contact me!), my roommate’s dance concert, and other things in between. There is so much to do!! I’ve been wanting to cancel things, so I can have some time to do whatever it is I want to do, but I realized ‘When am I ever going to be able to do this again?’. We only live life once, so let’s live it now! This week I had a friend make what I think was a wrong decision. It wasn’t a bad one, but I think it wasn’t the right choice. I just want to grab them, shake them, and say, “Why did you pick that? You have a limited time offer with this, and let me tell you, this will make you happier than that! Sure it’ll make you happy, but wouldn’t you rather have something you know is true, rather than something that’s just there for the moment?”. So we should do what makes us happiest now, and that’s something really hard for me to do. I have this terrible need to make everyone else around me happy, before making myself happy, which can make me sure indecisive. I kind of like to think of it as my “Ella Enchanted Curse”, because I ALWAYS try to make everyone happy! It’s terrible and it’s something I have to change. Anyways, back to what I was saying, we should live in a way, where one day we don’t say “Dang… I really missed out on that…”, whether it be doing something daring, such as skydiving, or dating someone you’ve liked for a long time and they like you back, or even doing small things, such as telling your parents you love them (I LOVE YOU MOM AND DAD!). You never know just when you won’t have that chance to do it again!
I know that this is so true! Everyday is a chance to do something, so make sure you take it! It could be gone in a blink of the eye, and you don’t want to look back and remember how you lost it, but rather to look back and think of everything you’ve ever done. Life is meant to be lived to it’s fullest, not to just cruise through it. What will you learn like that? Chances are meant to help us learn! So take chances this week and not let them pass by, because they may never come your way again! Good night and have a great week!
