Life lately.

And I'll fall on my knees
Tell me hows the way to go
Tell me hows the way to see
Show me all that i could be

Danger will follow me everywhere i go
Angels will call on me and take me to my home
Well this tired mind just wants to be lead home

I really really love this song. Check it out!

Well it's been a while dear friends! Lemme tell you what's new with me. I am now officially done with my CNA class! It feels so good to be done. Now I just have two tests left and then I'm certified! HOLLA! I've had 4-eight hour shifts of clinicals. My first day at the Nursing Home was great! I loved my CNA and I learned a lot. It was really neat to bond with the elderly. I just think they're so great! It was hard though knowing they hated it there. They just want to be able to take care of themselves, even though they can't. My second day was a little different, I didn't like it as much. First of all, in Nursing homes the nurses do nothing. Okay well NOT nothing. They just give medicine. The CNA's run the place. The Nurse on my second shift was a grouch. No fun I tell you! Get a new job lady. It's like teachers, if you hate kids, why teach? If you hate sick people, why be a Nurse? Oh well, hope she's not always like that. It's been super stressful and time consuming but I'm almost done! And let me tell you, I can't wait! It's been a good experience but I'm ready ya know?

Back to work! I never thought I would say this, but I was actually excited to go back to work. It had been a while. Ever craving some ice cream?? Come to Farr's! I will most likely be there. I love visitors.

I love Missionaries. Aren't they the greatest? It's just so amazing to know them before, and how much they grow, and how much their testimonies are strengthened. It's AMAZING. Thank you to all the young men out there serving, have served, or are about to serve. You are truly examples to us all. The the Lord loves you so much. Thank YOU.

The countdown begins! 11 days till california!! I'm too excited! It will be so nice to get away. Especially with my best friends! woot woot!  I'm dying for a vacation. I'm so burned out! It will be so good :)


Airplanes in the night skyyy :)

You know what I love?

Airplanes. I want to travel the world! I really do. The reason I bring this up is because the CNA class I'm taking is pretty darn close to Salt Lake International Airport. Every time I look in the sky I see a new airplane. "Take me with you!" I wish I could get away and see something new. I really do. There's so much more to see in the world! Someday :)

My CNA class is great! There's so much to learn, so much to do. Let me tell you a little run down of my week. I have had class every night from 5-10. But the class is in West Jordan, so basically with the drive and everything I am gone from 3:30-11pm. Long days eh? But it's alright! I'm basically half way there! I am so grateful my sister is doing it with me. I honestly don't think I could of done it without her! We help each other study and practice. It's so great. We've seen some pretty intense stuff lemme tell ya. Well actually I won't tell you in case you don't have the stomach for it. But it's been pretty interesting. We've been learning vital signs such as blood pressure, pulse, respiration, temperature, etc, etc.This next week is going to be more crazy than the last but bring it on! I'm excited to be done. I'm excited to be able to work in Hospitals.

Also, my favorite thing to do on our way home on the freeway is to look for the 3 temples in that valley! It's so neat to see the Oquirr, Jordan River, and Draper temple all at the same time. I love it. They're so beautiful!


A day of firsts!

Yesterday, was my *First* day in Relief Society.
And not in my home ward with my mamma, but in the Single's Ward.
Weird? You betcha. Super different? Yes ma'am/sir.
It will be good, I'm excited! But I will miss my home ward.
(I'm invited to go to my home ward, but as soon as I'm there they politely tell me to leave and go to the singles ward). Great. So goodbye Young Womens! It's been real. Thank you to ALL my leaders. You each are so amazing. I'll never forget your sweet spirits and testimonies.

Sooo Tonight I'm starting my CNA course! Have I told you about this? Basically for the next 2-3 weeks my nights are booked with class and clinicals. I'm excited! I'm nervous. I'm content. My lovely sister is doing it with me, thank heavens! For the past 2-3 years of driving experience I've been blessed to drive an automatic truck. Well my truck is going bye bye and we got a more inexpensive car for my seester. And guess what? Its stick shift. Do I know how to drive a stick shift? nope. But fear not! I am learning.. by my sister? Yes my 16 year-old-sister is teaching me how to drive stick shift. She's so rad. But anywho point of this car talk is that I need to learn so she doesn't have to drive to and fro every night for many nights ahead to class. Be patient with me young grasshopper, I'll get it soon enough. :)
