I feel like when February 28th gets here, this month will seem like the blink of an eye. As a matter of fact, time is just flying by in general. Like this craziness for example:
Elder Pinsent is home in 7 months! I am getting pretty excited (obviously just a little more than I was before). He is doing so well. Recently he told me I will have to forgive him when he says in the future that he misses his mission. I will for sure because I know how important it has been to him and how much it made him grow. I love that he love his mission! I also love this journey that we have been on, however I don't think I will miss it all that much once I have him back!! :)
This month just seems like it is going to be busy, busy, busy! I am super cramped with school work right now. I am happy that I am able to find a good balance however. I really like getting my work done at least a couple days before something is due. I just hate being last minute and I do not work very well under pressure with papers and assignments. I have a couple group projects though and those are usually a little easier to do under the wire because there is a combined effort (or at least there should be!). Luckily, my group projects this semester (4 presentations and 1 paper) are with people that I like, get along with and I know are as dedicated to school work as I am.
Cause you wanna know something? As crappy as it is sometimes, to feel stressed and tired and just feeling like I want this semester to be over right now.... I really really like school right now. I like my courses (except I am pretty close to officially hating sociological theory, but my prof is too great so I can't) and I like the little life that I have. I like going to school, I like getting dressed up cute for school and feeling scholarly. I like coming home and spending time with my family. I like making dinner with them and sitting around the table all doing our work. I like that we are all doing something productive in our lives. I feel blessed with the opportunities that myself and the members of my family have. My heart could not be happier.
On another side note, I went to my business communications class tonight. The topic we learned about tonight was social media in businesses. Throughout the class, I couldn't help but think how much I like social media. I like posting photos on Instagram and tweeting. I also like communicating with people who live far away via Facebook. OF COURSE I would like so much more if I could have conversations with some of these people face to face more often, but Facebook often does the trick. I also watched an interesting video the other day that a friend had posted how although we have social media, we cannot neglect the real life interaction with others. Speaking of which, I hope I can hang out with some of my besties soon. I miss my friends. School is consuming all of our lives wahh.
I think that's about all for now. Because another thing I love about being a University Student and living at home... I eat whatever I want at 10:30 pm! I deserve it ;)
