Quit, Don't Quit. Noodles, Don't Noodles...

I really like living here. I love our little apartment, I love our ward, I love our downstairs neighbors, I love living so close to Anna, I love being able to walk to the Library, to the grocery store, and to church. I love that it is warming up and soon I will see this "summer" that everyone keeps telling me is beautiful here. Also, people are really friendly here. I love it.

Sometimes I get frustrated with the small-ness of the town and the fact that either no one online lives here, or no one here gets online, but I think I just have to adjust. Things are going really well here and I am enjoying myself.

When I attended my first activity here in this ward, I met this wonderful girl in my ward named Iris. She is from Mexico City and thus speaks Spanish and English. She is so nice and I liked her right away. I thought about it all week and the next Sunday I finally worked up the courage to ask her if she would teach me Spanish. She said yes (hooray!) and ever since then she will come over to my house on Monday and Wednesdays and give me Spanish Lessons. She is a great teacher. I already feel like I've learned so much. I already know how to conjugate "er" and "ar" verbs and am learning "ir" verbs. What's that you say? Prove it? "Yo escribo fenomenal!" That's probably bad grammar, but you get the idea. Tu Madre. I really look forward to her lessons, not only because I am loving this whole Spanish thing, but because she is so much fun.

In conclusion, no more worrying about what will happen when. I will enjoy my life now, because my life is enjoyable now. As a wise turtle once said;

Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That is why it is called the present.
