News

Here are some news items that I'd like to share with all of you:

1. I'm moving in the next week! Lorie and Alec are getting married a week from today, and they want me out when they come back from their honeymoon (Selfish! They don't want me to share their house with them?). So I'll be moving into another apartment in our complex. My friend Jamie said that I could live with her for the month of December until I moved into my new place. And...

2. I'm moving back to Alta in January! Yay! I loved living in Alta before, and I think that it will be great to be back there again. It's such a short distance from BYU campus, the temple, and the English Language Center where I will (hopefully) be spending a lot of my time once I'm in the TESOL Certificate Program. And...

3. I'm applying for the TESOL Certificate in January! I've been working on making my online portfolio and resume better, and I've talked to a couple of people about writing me letters of recommendation. And I'll have graduated then, so my grades for this semester will be in, which I think will improve my GPA a bit. I really do feel like I've done well in my classes this semester. I just have to keep up the work until the end. I have group projects to work on in 4 of my 5 classes, so it'll be a rough end to the semester. But I can do anything for 4 weeks, and that's all I have left in the semester, including finals week. Yay!

Well, that's all my news for now. I am grateful for the developments in my life recently. And I'm so glad to graduate!

Is that building by the stadium sort of? I think I know where that is. Very cool. I am really excited for you! One of my old roommates really benefited from that.

I'm sorry I'm so selfish. I know most people would not mind having someone else live in their living room right when they get married, Alec and I are just cruel people...Actually, we are doing a service to the boys in Alta who I'm sure are anxious to have another amazing girl join their ranks. Don't worry Alta boys, you can thank me and Alec later for giving Merry reason to go back. :)
