Good Things


So Summer term ended, I got to visit home, and now I'm back in Provo for the Fall semester. And this semester is looking great because of a few really good things:

1. Family
I have so much family here! Kevin is here, as well as Cami, Danica, Alyson, and John; and we all live close to each other! On Friday we all went to Alyson's and John's new apartment to play Apples to Apples and eat brownies. We had a blast playing through the entire box.

2. Classes
I know this seems weird, but I am so excited to finally start in on my applied math classes. Multivariate calculus and ordinary differential equations were fun, but it will be great to really delve into my major. More than half of my credits will come from my math classes! I'm also taking French 102, Old Testament, and beginning Latin dance. It will be a ton of fun.

3. No Textbooks
What? Did I say that right? Yup! I went to the book store the other day and looked at the book list, and I don't have to buy any textbooks at all. There's $200-300 I don't have to spend! And quite a bit of weight I don't have to carry around as well.

4. A New Job
This will be my first time working while taking classes, but I'm excited to start working as a tutor in the Math Lab. I start Tuesday! With that and my math classes, I am going to be spending all day in the Talmage building

5. Awesome Roommates
After all my roommates left on missions, I found myself in need of some new ones. I'm rooming with my friend Mandy for the first time - we've known each other since freshman year but never roomed together. There's also four other girls in the apartment and they all seem really nice. With this great group of girls, this year is going to be a blast!

Well, that's my good things list for today. I hope moving to Hawaii is going well! What things are you most excited about for this upcoming year?
