When One Thing Ends Another Begins

I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted something, but I have a perfectly valid excuse: SCHOOL IS ALMOST OVER!!!

Yay! I’m so excited to be done with my first year of college. I can’t believe how much has changed this past year of my life. To think one year ago, I was busy taking AP exams and trying to stay awake in class. I also had an 11:30pm curfew and volleyball was pretty much my life. Now I am getting ready to take college finals and I still struggle to stay awake in classes; but there is so much more…

I am headed to Australia in 70 days. Going on a mission was nowhere near my radar as I moved into my first dorm room over the summer. It was still not on my mind when I moved into my current dorm room for Fall and Winter semester. It was not until October that I realized my future would entail putting off college for two years to go on a mission.

While excitement to finish school is dominating the majority of my emotions right now, nostalgia is definitely present. I have made so many friends here at BYU that I have grown to love dearly. I know we will always be friends, but when you are separated for two years, things will doubtlessly change, and that makes me a little sad. However, I know that serving a mission is the right thing to do. I will not be punished for serving the Lord; of this I am sure.

In order to celebrate friendship, this past weekend my friends and I went down to Las Vegas for our last “hoorah” before finals began. It was amazing. Don’t believe me, just look at the pictures J
