Refuse to be Discouraged

Your little acts are not little.

Your efforts are worth it.

I refuse to be discouraged.

Just a little "Thank You"

Sorry I haven't written for a while. Busy times.

I went through the temple this last weekend and received my endowments. It was quite the experience. It has increased my faith in God and in myself.

A lot has been on my mind for these last few weeks, and I'm not really sure how to put into words what I've experienced. Satan has been working really hard to keep me from going on a mission on through the temple. He knows he can't shake my faith in Jesus Christ, so he aims for my faith in myself instead.

I'm so thankful to my Mommy and Daddy and all that they do for me. Both of them have been there throughout all the ups and downs of me choosing to serve a mission. Those ups and downs are still present, and my parents' are still incredibly supportive.

I'm thankful to my grandparents, my brother, my sisters, their husbands, and their kids in their support as well. It's been great to have so much family to rely on.

And I'm thankful to my closest friends. I love you all so much!

I'm actually leaving on Feb 8th, so no worries. We still have a bit of time.

I have been called to serve in the New York, New York North Mission - Spanish speaking for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (thus the Frank Sinatra: New York New York reference"

I am so grateful for this opportunity to serve and so grateful that it's time!

ɑɪlʌvmɑɪmedʒɚ. ɪfjukʌnriɾθis / θɛnjulʌvmɑɪmedʒɚtu.

Just a little message for you. If you can read this, please let me know :)

I am loving school so far this semester. I'm taking phonetics and anatomy of speech mechanisms, and doing really well in both. I know that I am in the right major because, not only do I enjoy the classes but I'm a natural. For the most part, I pick up this communicative disorders stuff so easily.

Work is going well too. I work every Friday night which puts a huge damper on the social life, but I'm surviving.

My roommates truly are the best. We are so close. It's slightly unnatural how well we get along, seeing how we didn't know each other 2 months ago.

I've got a special announcement coming up in a few weeks, but I think I'm going to keep you waiting with suspense for a while. And if you already know, no sneaking!

Jazz Hands

So this one summer, I worked at EFY and it was wonderful. I met lots and lots of great individuals. Thanks for an amazing summer everyone! Now school has started and I'm really excited about this semester. I'm taking phonetics, anatomy, history of jazz, human development, old testament (institute: make it a priority), and voice lessons. Lots of things to keep me busy.

I recently moved into a new apartment. It's an upstairs apartment in a super old school house. I call it the penthouse. I'm rooming with some super wonderful ladies Jeralyn, Dayna, and Jay. They are chipper, friendly, and easy going. With them, this year will be one to remember.

Okay, this is all good news. But the blog-breaking news is yet to come. One of the amazing people I met at EFY this summer is Kami. She and I set a goal to exercise more often. In order to start our exercise goal off right, she introduced me to this life-changing video... ENJOY!

Now that your life has been changed, I hope that you jazzercise often.

New Apartment!

My new apartment is all organized and decorated. I love my new place. My roommates are so sweet and kind. The apartment itself is really high quality. I have pictures for you! A tour, through my bedroom... my very own bedroom!

First thing, my bookshelf/drawers. Complete with approximately 10 books. Haha. My collection will grow eventually.

My super pink room that I love very muchly. Doesn't it just scream Lindsay?

Mirrored closet doors, AKA: Heaven.

Aaaand... my very own bathroom (also very pink).

Now that my room is beautified and all settled, It's EFY Season! I start this Saturday and will be in Provo until the beginning of July. Heeeere we go!

Boom! Roasted!

I like to keep my blog posts positive, but sometimes it's healthy to be negative.

I am a huge fan of The Office. It's probably my first love. There is an episode where Michael roasts his employees in the office. He says:

"Jim, you’re 6’11” and you weigh 90lbs, Gumby has a better body than you. Boom, roasted!
Dwight you’re a kiss a**. Boom roasted!
Pam you failed art school. Boom, roasted!
Meredith, you kissed so many guys you’re starting to look like one. Boom, roasted!
Kevin, I can’t decide between a fat joke and a dumb joke. Boom, roasted!
Creed, your teeth called, your breath stinks. Boom, roasted!
Angela, where’s Angela? Well there you are, I didn’t see you behind that grain of rice. Boom, roasted!
Oscar, you’re gay.
Andy, Cornell called they think you suck and you’re gayer than Oscar. Boom, roasted!"

I want to hold a roast for all the frustrations that I have now.

USU Advisors, McDonald's suits you better. Boom, roasted!
Boys, you smell. Boom, roasted!
Car, you may want to look up the definition for transportation. Boom, roasted!
School Loan, go pay yourself off. Boom, roasted!

Phew! Haha. That feels okay. Now I'm going to go write a gratitude list. ♥
