I am all packed.

Tomorrow I move back to the unique college life known as Provo.

I have mixed feelings.

Yesterday I attended the "I just got home from my mission so I'm going to tell you about it in the context of the topic I've been given" talk in church of two of my friends from high school. These are the first two boys that were in my grade to return home from their missions. And within the next year, most of my friends will be coming home as well. This realization brought about all sorts of thoughts and feelings.

I have been graduated from high school for over two years. Oh wow.
Two years seems long when they first leave.
I can't believe how fast two years actually goes by.
What have I accomplished in the 2 years since I last saw my friends?
How much have I changed?
How much have they changed?
I will be 21 in two months. Oh my heavens.
I'm filled with joy at the thought of seeing old friends again.
I am a Junior in COLLEGE!
I hadn't realized how much I missed these boys until I thought about them coming home.
I love reminiscing about our old adventures.
We used to be crazy and do outrageous things.
Have I become boring since they left?
I can't believe my brother is almost old enough to go on a mission.
Time is a funny thing.
My friends are a funny thing as well.

Woes of the Camera-less

Sometimes I like to take pictures. And when I say sometimes, I mean all of the time. If I had the ability, I would photograph every single thing I did in my day. I just think that would make for some interesting viewing. Sometimes I think that if I was creative, I would be a photographer. But then I remember that I am not creative. Also, being a photographer requires the possession of a camera. Which does not describe me.
I used to possess one of those fancy contraptions, and I took many fabulous pictures like this one:

But alas! It was not meant to be. My camera was rudely stolen from me over 2 years ago while I was dancing my heart out at Senior Dinner Dance a couple weeks before my high school graduation. It was a tragedy.
But let's not dwell on the past.
Let's dwell on the present.
I don't have a camera.
This can often pose a problem.
Luckily for me, I have roommates and friends who often take their cameras on our adventures. Downside: it often takes a long time for those pictures to make their way onto my computer. This leads to a problem: I have had some fabulous adventures as of late, however I don't feel I could do them blogging justice unless there is photographic evidence. Therefore, you will just have to wait for them in anticipation.

I teach.

I teach swimming lessons.
I love teaching swimming lessons.
Sometimes I get sunburnt when I teach swimming lessons.
I always put put on sunscreen.
But sometimes the sun decides to evade my layer of UV protection and burn me anyway.
But I still love teaching swim lessons.
Small children are funny.
They are particularly funny when they think they know how to swim.
Usually they don't actually know how to swim. At all.
This is why I teach them.
I enjoy swimming long lengths on my back.
I also enjoy pretending to know how to do the butterfly.
Mostly I just enjoy teaching swimming lessons.
