Today, I had an interesting day while at work. All I really want to say about it is stand up for what you believe in. Don't allow anyone to tell you differently than what you feel is right! Sometimes, it may be hard, but always think down the road. If you don't speak out today, the next time something happens you may need to use the last offense in this defense.
To recap my last few months... I've been steadily working away at the NMC. I went to Colorado for my 99 Class reunion. Suprisingly, I really enjoyed myself at the reunion. I knew I'd love seeing my old friends and hanging out in the gorgeous mountains that make up the Rocky range. But to actually go the reunion, I was a little skeptical. I really enjoyed seeing people that I haven't seen in a while. I shook hands with people who I didn't think knew me in high school, but knew my name and were actually excited to see me. We toured our high school and saw a lot of great new additions and changes to it's structure! I really wish I could have seen a few of the teachers, but it was still so much fun. I loved hanging out with some of my close friends while traveling through the great state of Colorado! It sincerely was such a great trip. Before my trip, my new roommate Michael and I found a great place to live. I was the only one to scope it out before the actual agreement was made; I was a little concerned with all that pressure. But it turns out to be a great place indeed! My old roommate/landlord wanted me out by the end of July, but I was in CO during that time. He and my new roommate were kind enough to move all of my stuff to the new apartment for me! It was such a relief to come home and find everything already moved! I settled in for a few days and then another great friend of mine came down for a week. I took off another week and we did things that frightened fish! We went to Avery Island; the Laura, Shadows on the Teche and San Francisco plantation homes; and then toured New Orleans. It was great to catch up with Stephanie; we haven't seen each other since before my mission, about 8 years ago...eek! We both have changed but for the better, we decided. We've matured and it was really neat to see someone who knew me when I was a "kid" and to now see me as more of an adult and notice the difference. Right before Stephanie got here, I developed a crappy cough. I took some meds/herbals/vitamins and I still have an annoyance version of it, but nothing too serious. It's so much better, except for when I "honk" in the middle of sacrament meeting.
