So i haven’t exactly been an avid blogger since i started with my… one glorious post, a good few months ago. I feel like that whole last sentence/fragment had horrible punctuation… but whate’er. I haven’t taken a real english class since AP lang. my junior year of high school. Which was a good 9 years ago. Minus like… 7 years. But still. I’m aloud to be rusty. Just not rusty like metal gets. Moving on.
I’m back in Georgia-land, which isn’t as glorious as i was expecting. I walked off the plane and breathed myself a nice glass of water. Everything is…. Lush and green and huge and buggy and hot and humid and hot and there’s trees everywhere- NOTHING like the west. I’d forgotten what the south was like in the summer and…. although it has its beauty too, i miss Idaho. I never thought i’d say the words, and somewhere a girl named Jamie Wadsworth just felt the power of those words and is rejoicing. But Idaho is awesome when it’s not raining and windy and miserable. I miss it. I miss the spiritual bubble.
But, i have to say, i love being around… let’s say all sorts of ethnicities. I love love love it. I love being the minority. There’s so many… white people in Idaho. Too many.
Nonetheless, here I am in the real world again for 7 weeks. Maybe shorter if i won the Jenny Phillips vocal competition and need to fly back out to Salt Lake City for recording a song on the next youth cd. Woot! I’m not expecting to win though. There’s lots of amazingly talented people out there, and although i believe i’ve got some talent, i’m not breath takingly spectacular. But if i’m meant to get my shot, i will. I find out August 7th.
Otherwise, i’m just chillin here till i go back to Idaho to be an I-Team leader. I’m super duper excited to do that. I’m figuring they’ll fix me up with my future husband or something, and we’ll go around together and help the freshies get established at BYUI and help them make friends and achieve all their hopes and dreams… maybe not that last part. But it’ll be a blast. i loved get connected as a freshman, and i hope to make it a good experience for those coming in.
I’m still a little shaky with my schedule, still hoping some classes will open up (i hate having low priority for registering..), but i’ve got some good ones. I’m taking mission prep with my bestie melissa. What are the odds of that! I took an amazing Missionary Book of Mormon Class this past semester too. Amazing teacher, Bro. Christensen (the older one). Made me super excited to serve a mission. That is….sigh… if i don’t get married. I’ve decided to stop being so stubborn about it. If the opportunity arrises and i pray about it and God’s like, “get married.” then i’ll…..sigh….probably do that. But if i pray and God’s like “What were you thinking? Those people in Chile need you Sister Verner!” (not that i’d go to Chile… i just heard that if i get called anywhere in South America i have to die my hair darker… lame…) then i’ll be like “Will you wait for me ____?” and he’ll probably be like “Eh, i’ll pass.” and i’ll just move on to someone far superior to him. Like Edward Cullen. (Just kidding… i’m really not that lame…)
This is way too long for a blog post. So i’ll wrap it up. Life’s awesome. I’m a happy person. I ate like 4000 calories today…
