LaboUr Day

What a lovely holiday! I hope everyone's labour day was as good as mine. Last year on labour day I went to lagoon with a couple of goons. It was so much fun! I really wanted to go again this year but unfortunately, I couldn't find a way to get there. Maybe another time I'll be able to go. Hopefully. Anyway, yesterday my roommates and I went to Deer Creek with some people in our ward. We weren't really sure what we were going to do because when we were invited, they said that it was a kayaking trip.. None of us had been kayaking or to Deer Creek before so we didn't know what to expect. Well turns out Deer Creek is actually a lake. And the kayaks were these inflatable things that were for two people rather than the one person kayaking down rapids like the olympics kinda deal I was picturing. We also didn't know how many people were going to go and if it was going to be worth going. We didn't really have anything else to do so we just went. What the heck right? It was a beautiful day, just a tad bit too windy for my liking. We played volleyball, ate good food, swam in the lake and did these kayak thingers. It turned out to be a really fun day! Unfortunately, I didn't take any pictures.. I totally brought my camera. It just never got out of its case. Next time!

Well kids.. I'm back at BYU. Its been one week already. It flew by but at the same time dragged on. I am loving my classes so far. I surprisingly like all of them. I'm taking Human Anatomy which has a lecture and a lab, Human Development, New Testament, Geology, Music for Dancers, Jazz, and Contemporary. As of now, my two favorite classes are probably Anatomy and Contemporary. My anatomy class is just right up my alley. Memorization woot woot! That I can do! I can name all the bones in your skull and spell them too. Not to mention all the little holes in your head too. Impressive right? We have a guest teacher for the first two weeks of Contemporary and I'm loving it. Her choreography is different from anything I've ever done and it is so much fun!

I love my roommates already :) I am living with my goooooood friend Arielle who I roomed with my first semester. Its a hoot. She's crazy. But that's why I love her! We are also living with a girl named Kelsi Gormley who knew Arielle and then Kelsi's friend Ingunn who is from Norway. Lotsa fun these ladies. I'm sure its going to be a good semester. Kelsi and Ingunn are both returned missionaries. Kelsi served in Brazil and Ingunn served in Minnesota. I can tell that living with them is going to make me a better person :) I can feel the spirit in our apartment already which is something that I have to say, I haven't always felt before in previous apartments.. Not that other apartments I was living in lacked a feeling of the spirit, its just stronger here right now. Or maybe I'm just more susceptible to it at this particular time in my life. Who really knows eh? All I know is that its good and I want to be part of what is making it possible to feel the spirit in our apartment. 

Another thing that I am really excited about this semester is something called RED5. Our ward is going to all read the Book of Mormon together this semester and if we follow the schedule, we will have it read by December. My roommates and I started reading together as soon as we got home from church today. I like that. I'm excited, I think that it'll not only bring us closer to each other as an apartment, but also each individually closer to our Heavenly Father. 

On that note, I didn't mean for this post to be a lil spiritual rant.. but that's what it turned out to be. As I was in church today I was thinking that I should probably share my testimony more often and I have, for some reason unknown to me, always been a little apprehensive about sharing my testimony on my blog and I know I shouldn't be. That's gonna change a little bit. 

The Book is blue and the Church is true.
