I got here Thursday the 5th.
I LOVE IT!
It is wonderful. Everyone is super nice and friendly. We have prayers constantly, even after talent shows!!!! The boys are actually gentlemen, and semi-mature. I usually don't like orientation stuff, but it wasn't been so bad. Classes haven't started yet, so that's always good ;)
Oh yes, and...
I have the BEST roommates. There are four of us. We are in a kind of apartment-like set-up. Kitchen. Living room. Bathroom. And two bedrooms.
Sorry, my laptop isn't downloading the photos from my camera, so you'll have to bear with me.
Oh and each of the girls have two pics. They kind of ran into each other.
She didn't show up until we had all been here for a day and a half. She is super sweet, hard-working, and helpful. She is always willing and wanting to be the leader. She has already been
here for a semester, so she has been ridiculously helpful; a huge asset. She's been way good for tours and the "ins and outs".
She is way fun! We're actually from the same stake and knew each other. How crazy is that!? She is way easy to talk to (we do a lot of it) and up for anything. She is fluent in Spanish (my mom told her that she expects me to be fluent by the end of the year). She has never had mac and cheese or nutella!!! So, it was fun introducing her to those, since, of course, they will be the main food staples throughout college.
And my room roommate... Sara.
She is super fun, ridiculously nice, and happy. She is also very neat, so I guess I have to step it up and actually keep my side of the room looking nice. But at the same time, she is really laid back and easy-going. She has a hilarious sense of humor and definitely keeps us laughing.
They are all amazing.... so far ;)
We all stick together super well. We all started getting along really well right off, which isn't hard to believe, being at BYU, where everyone gets along. We had a meeting today. We decided we are going to have morning and evening prayers together (family prayers if you will). We figured out our jobs for cleaning. We decided how we are going to do our meals and such. I am so excited. We are all on the same track. None of us are trying to be "different" or "rebel" or anything. It is fantastic.
Classes start tomorrow. Church was today and, as always, was fantastic. Testimonies were way better than I thought... no too many "... and I have been blessed with the best roommates."
I really want to give out my address and email, but I really don't want to do that over blogger... so... if you have any ideas, let me know please. If you have my number just call me and I'll give it to you (only if you want it of course), otherwise, we'll have to get really creative. I've emailed the info to the people whose emails I have. Love and miss you all!
