Sad Day

The California trip is off! Hair Genius has decided to move to Utah so she will be leaving on May 15. Good new, I get to drive up with her! The plan is to leave the morning of the 15 (if I can get work off) and then on Sat. the 16th get her settled into her apartment and everything then hang out and go to church on Sunday and I fly home that night. I am going to miss this girl like CRAZY!!! but I am so happy for her doing what is best for her and am excited for this new adventure for her!

On a happier note, only three weeks left of this semester left! That makes me very happy cause I am so ready for it to be done!! This semester has had some very interesting moments including my very first time of having to defend my religion. I am currently taking two History classes and one day before my 111 class some of the guys in my class realized that I am "Mormon" and started asking me question. It wasn't to bad but then more people showed up and it ended up being 6 guys "questioning" (berating) me. Whenever I tried to say something or answer something they said/asked they would interrupt me and I walked away from that experience almost in tears. I felt like I had let the Church and myself down. That is something I hope doesn't happen on a regular occurrence but was a very valuable lesson to me. I have nothing to prove to those guys and all I can to is bear my testimony of what I KNOW to be true.

...Here I come!! At least I certainly hope. My friend Hair Genius and I are planning a trip to Cali. in May just to get away and have some fun. Only thing is we created some stipulations for ourselves. If we do not meet our work-out goals we are not allowed to go! We are hard at work trying to get in shape and reach our goals so we can make it to here!

My new routine is I bought 5 Jillian Michaels. Her Cardio Backside, Cardio Kickboxing, 30 Day Shred, No More Target Zones, and Banish Fat Boost Metabolism. I had been doing her two cardio ones till I got the 30 Day Shred one in the mail on Saturday and I'm now doing it with my mom! Hair Genius decided she wanted to borrow my Metabolism one. We are getting down and serious cause we need this Cali. trip!!

Conference Weekend

Conference this weekend was AMAZING! There were so many good things discussed and all of them were applicable to everyone. The leaders of this church truly are Inspired men who love us and want the best for us. In honor of this last weekend here are some of my favorite quotes:

"Success is never measured by how strongly we are tempted, but how strongly we respond." (Elder Robert D. Hales).
"Every child deserves the chance to progress" (Sister Margaret S. Liffereth).
"Help with a smile and without being asked. Be able to say "I have fought the good fight!"" (President Henry B. Eyring).
"It is not important how a man died, but how he has lived" (Elder Rafael E. Pino).
"This IS the work of the Lord" (Elder Richard G. Scott).
"You can't be a lifesaver if you look like all the others on the beach" (Elder Dallin H. Oaks).
"You are never lost when you can see the Temple" (Elder Gary E. Stevenson).
"Our opportunity is to give people hope" (Elder L. Tom Perry).
"Try desperately to take Satan Down" (President Thomas S. Monson).

Obviously these aren't all of the great quotes, only a select few of mine. These quotes are exactly what we should be doing in our everyday life if we want to be able to make it back to our Father in Heaven. I hope that I am living my life in such a way that when I meet my Savior I will be Proud and able to look into his eyes and have his say, Well done ye good and faithful servant.
