Loving it

Wednesday, February 10, 2010

Life is different for me now- we all know that! But it has taken some getting used to! (understatement of the year!)
At first it was SO overwhelming and i was quite homesick! But now it is better. I discovered something that made a HUGE difference!- A positive attitude!!! Yeah yeah go ahead and say "i told you so!"
But seriously... I thought about it, i have lots of exciting things happening this year..
VERY interesting classes! Seriously- Psychology is quite possibly THE BEST class EVER!!!!!!!!!! I just love it!
I am also only a ten minute drive to school, which is GREAT!
I live extremely close to my friends and can now do things with them after school on the way home =)
Dial up internet, and the plug is in the lounge- limits my time on the net =) I am trying to not be on too often. At first i had Facebook withdrawels but now it's all good!!!
I have a lot of time to myself. Which is fantastic because:
1. I am up to date with my homework
2. I am writing in my journal almost everday!
3. I am doing the proper amount of work for my art class (at LEAST one full page a day!)
4. I am reading lots of books! (GREAT help for my english writing class!)
5. I am reading my Scriptures LOTS which is great as Seminary starts on Monday- something i am looking forward to a lot!!!

So i had some time to myself last night (Tuesday)... Just chilling by myself. And then i remembered that i had a box of chocolates from Pres and Suzanne Walters.. So i did something i have always wanted to do! Took a bite out of every chocolate... AND THEN put it back!!!!!!!

It may not seem like that great of a thing to do, but they always do it on movies so i wanted to try it =) Try it one day- i promise it will bring great satisfaction =D

It was quite fun! It also made me feel VERY sick!!!!! Totally worth it though!!!
Plus- there is a whole other tray underneath that i can share!!!!!
If you look closely at the picture, you will see that i am in fact NOT lying about writing in my journal lots =) Very proud of myself!! Haha.

I am actually enjoying living here now. It is quite pleasant... Although there is no air con!!!! And only ONE power point in my room (what the!!!??)
But seriously, i am happy here now. I am being looked after- well as much as a 18 year old needs to be! I am being fed (LOTS!). Orn cooks WAY too much food all the time!
I have made lots of goals of things to get done.. I have HEAPS of things to look forward to (all through the year!) which helps lots!!! I still miss my family, but i can see them often! I even talked to Asha on the phone the other night- he misses me ;)
I no longer cry myself to sleep every night! ;) Everyone can sleep easy tonight, knowing i am ok!!! =P

Hey Makayla have you thought of getting a pre paid broadband stick for your laptop? They are so good, I got one for when we go away. Vodaphone have a 12g (I think) for $150n and it lasts for 12 months.
