The time is finally coming where my papers are in, I got a job, and everything seems to be going okey-dokey-atichokey. *knock on wood*. I've always heard from former missionaries that the months before leaving on their missions were pretty hard- they faced a lot of opposition. And yeah, I've had some of that. But you know, I think it's finally starting to get good now. I was worried that I wouldn't get a job, leaving me below what I had set out to pay for my mission and leaving me with absolutely no fund-age for when I come back home, but I have a job now, paying me more than I had expected, so there's one up. My papers officially went in last Monday, so I don't need to freak out any more; all my prayers are for the mission call to come ASAP. So there's another up. And last, nothing bad's really going on. Yeah, I'll melt into a puddle if I step outside the door, but there's plenty of good things to do indoors, right? It just means that I can spend more time with my wonderful family and get caught up with putting together this website. It's actually pretty time consuming.
I'm trying to prepare the best way that I can, but it's hard not knowing where I'll be going and what topics I need to focus on learning better. I don't even know what language I'll be learning if I even learn a new language. Anyways, ciao for now and hopefully my next post will be my actual mission call! *screaming inside*
I'll write back soon!
