Counting My Blessings

Oh...I am so blessed! So very blessed! 
This year was my first year at college and it rocked! 
Going to college by myself. Blessing 1: Getting the best roommates I could have ever been blessed with. Heavenly Father definitely knows me more than I know myself!
I applied to be an RA at my apartment complex and my second semester the assistant manager quite and I was hired. Blessing 2: Assistant manager position with a fabulous boss who became my mentor.
I also applied to be an Ambassador at my university and got it. Blessing 3: Getting to know some of the most amazing people of my life and becoming a better leader.
One of my friends recommended a job opening to me and I took it! Blessing 4: Getting a job learning Spanish testing out a new Spanish learning system at the MTC. Did I mention I'm getting paid? To learn Spanish? For my mission? Booyah!
Choosing to go on a mission. Blessing 5: Working to improve my communication with Father in Heaven leading me to be in the right spot at the right time and taking the opportunities that have presented themselves.
Going to the temple. Blessing 6: This has been the best!!! Honestly, I love the temple! I love knowing I'm worthy to go there! I love learning there! I love the Spirit there! I lovelovelove it!
My family. Blessing 7: My the best. For reals. I could never be in the place I am now without them. They are thee best!

My Mission Checklist

Well dang it! I thought I would be better at this blog posting thing...turns out it wasn't meant to be! Despite this post being to remind me that I still have a blog I think I'm going to make a list of everything I still need or want to do before leaving on my mission.

  • Make a tulle skirt! I saw a Pinterest (I know, how typical sis mish...right?) tutorial and it looks so easy and cute and I want one!
  • Organize and create a binder to help me come back to real life after the mission instead of floundering around:
    • how to get back into school
    • my class schedule
    • housing
    • plan to start looking for a new car
    • plan to start looking for a new job
    • financial budget
  • Move all my stuff from my apartment back home
  • Sell my car
Ok, I think that's it! My to do list, guess we'll have to see how it works!
