Livin My life

I don' t have much to say, so I guess I will just ramble. Life has been super busy. The semester is coming to an end. I only have one more day to teach my second graders and I miss them already. I really do think my class was the best class ever! I am so excited to enter into the teaching profession. Although the thought petrifies me at times, I am sure I will do well at it.

Sandra got me addicted to The Hunger Games series. I loved them! I am anticipating the third one in August. I am already looking for spoilers online. It's only been day since I finished the second book, but the suspense is killing me. Katniss and Peeta better end up together.

I started thinking about two things today. One, I wonder if my life is passing me by without be even realizing it. I seem to rush everything and I feel like I never have enough time in the day. Lately, I've been feeling guilty because I haven't seen my family as much as I ought too. I will miss them all when the move away. Guess it'll be me against the world when they do.

My second thought is about how little I know about other people. I wonder if I am too self absorbed and consumed in my own life that I neglect to notice various things about other people. Talking to one of my roommates today helped me realize this. She told me a lot and I realized how very little I knew about her after we had lived together for a few months. Maybe this is an example of life flying by as well.

Ginny got baptized yesterday. I am super sad I wasn't able to be there. I am so proud of her decision. I know that she has the potential to do great things in life and the ability to do whatever she chooses to do.

That's my life. It's full of To Do lists and homework and it's passing by to quickly. However, I love it! I have a wonderful family and great friends. Although my life is full of stress, it is also full of laughter. Even though I might not even know what I was laughing about the next day. Maybe its exhaustion, or maybe its happiness. I don't know.

Happy Birthday Pops!

I love my dad. He is one of the most exceptional men I know, even if he is a little crazy. I have several memories with dad. Dad has the strength of a gladiator. He is such a gentle giant. Dad also loves his scriptures. He taught me early morning seminary for four years, and I don't think I was the best student. It was not uncommon to see dad sitting at the dining room table reading his scriptures. The greatest thing dad ever taught me was to love the scriptures. Dad is also an extremely hard worker. He works hard to provide for his family, even when he hasn't always loved his job. I love you dad and hope your birthday has been amazing!
