Yes, April was the best name I could think of for a title.

Well, its been quite a long time since I've written, sorry about that. This semester has been crazy though! Great, but crazy.

First classes: I have absolutely loved my "Old Testament Roots of the Book of Mormon" class. I have never worked so hard or been so satisfied with a research paper before! It is insane how much I have learned.

Second, I have a growing entourage of Doctor Who friends. They just seem to pop out of the woodwork! We haven't been able to watch any together, but it is so nice to have friends that get my Doctor Who references. I haven't seen the new episodes yet, and it's driving me crazy! Did you guys record them? Please save them till I get home!

Third, lately I've been reading a ton. All of my classes basically had everything due a few weeks ago, so it was completely crazy, but then I didn't really have much to do till finals. So I read Pride and Prejudice, then Emma, both by Jane Austen, and then Graceling by I forget who (that one was good, but not spectacular. Eventually it just felt like I was just reading about the Hunger Games characters put in a different world. Their names were even Katsa and Po. Sound like Katniss and Peeta, anyone?) Then I read Wizard's First Rule by Terry Goodkind, the first of the Sword of Truth series and Hood by Steve Lawhead, the first of the King Raven trilogy. Both were great, but I don't think I'll read the rest of Sword of Truth, however, I do want to read the rest of King Raven.

Fourth, 12 DAYS TILL KEVIN COMES HOME FROM HIS MISSION!!!!!!!!! I am so excited to see him again! (for everyone out there you can see his letters home here.)

Fifth, I had Easter dinner with cousins and friends. Ellen and I made a big ham, as well as scalloped potatoes and carrot cake! Then other people brought sides. It was such great food and great company.

Sixth, I went to the French Club Cheese Night! I got to try like 6 different cheeses. I liked most of them, but the Bleu D'Auvergne was much too strong for me. And that's also the only name I remember, so that's what you get to hear about!

And that's some of the recent highlights of winter semester. It's been a lot of fun, and I'm a little sad to see so many of my friends leave on missions. I'm excited for them, but sad that they won't be here. Now it's just finals and then I get to head home!
