A Happy Saturday

I started my job! We had a 5 hour orientation on Thursday. It was really I intense, but good. So now I'll be even busier, and so I'm a little stressed out, especially because I'll be representing the school. And I'll get to help with the orientation this Saturday. And I'm giving a talk next Sunday. And I have a new cousin! His name is Andrew Hess, my Aunt Micalea's third baby and first boy. He was born on the 12th. So now I officially have 3 cousins I haven't met. Grrrrrr.

I will be working every weekend now :( but I will get to sleep in and hang out on the weekend nights still. Morgann's family came to visit her yesterday (Saturday), and they let me hang out with them! We went out to Ruby Tuesday's, to Walmart, and walked around the shops in Lexington. There were the cutest little stores! Me and Morgann have been trying to go forever, and it was just as wonderful as we thought it would be. The weather was wonderful! The leaves were turning, the sun was out and warm...there was a football game so the shops were empty...and the ice cream we had was scrumdiddlyumptious. I was in heaven.

Then I got a blessing, which was a really good experience, then me and Morgann watched Robin Hood (my favorite) and The Duchess (I hated it) after her family left. Her family is so fun! And it really made my day. I was going to have a lonely day, but it felt good to be with family, even if it isn't my own. I love it here, but I can't wait to see my family.

I'm learning so much! I've had professors relate the menstrual cycle to the Atonement and the Second Coming. And we talked about Plato being one of the people that visited Wilford Woodruff in the St. George Temple in our Philosophy class. So life is still good. And I'm still working on being patient.
