"oh my gosh. i miss people calling me JENN. MY NAME IS JENN. BUT SHHH ITS A SECRET OUT HERE. its so funny. the english speakers i hang out with told me i don´t look like a jenn.... and i´m like.... reallly?
dude the time change wasn´t crazy at all. its weird how fast i got used to it. sometimes i´m like.... dude my homies in utah are still asleep. when i´m getting into bed at night (like 4pm for you) i wonder what everyone´s doing.
i got super homesick on saturday because i was dreaming of you guys. so i showed the sisters my pictures and told them stories and it made me feel better. no one has as many pictures as i do, its a bit embarrassing but also makes me feel cool. my comp is a nightmare. she had to go back to her hometown to take care of some business, and it was the happiest day and a half. if i could spend all day with the english speakers, i´d be completely fine. but there´s a lot of good people here other than that, and i love them all so much already. its bumming me out that today is my last day at the mtc. yeah dude, i get assigned TOMORROW. its crazy. but you should give out my email to the ones you feel like deserve it because i´ll have like loads more time once i´m out in the field. and right now i´m only writing you and my dad. its kind of sad. but i´m happy to hear from you.
I MISS YOU LIKE A WHOLE BUTT LOAD, (not like a representative of christ should speak) ITS WHATEVER.
did everyone like the cds???????????????? like i hope i didn´t emotionally scar anyone. i was geniunely worried.
my friend elder thorpe says you guys would get along. he peeked at my screen. he´s awesome. he loves beyonce and we´re basically best friends. yes, all true. i´m not just saying that because he´s probably reading over my shoulder.
dude, no joke i was singing some of our songs in the shower on tuesday. happy wolfpackaversary my dears. you´re my happy thoughts when i need to fly out here.
i´m very happy you´ve been hanging out with the thomas family. i miss sundays at their house. i just miss everyone. like if i could virtually hug you all right now i would. so virtual hugs!
i went to the temple on thursday. i´m going to miss waking up to it every morning. its just a nice reminder that thats why i´m here so people can someday go in there like i did and make sacred covenants. thats why i´m a missionary. good thing i have pictures to hang up once i´m out in the field. i´ll be able to go once every 3 months to the temple.... compared to twice a week... but hey i´m on the lords time not jenn´s time.
i´m going to send you a message for the blog with pictures. if it lets me.
DUDE OF COURSE I´VE BEEN USING MY 1D TOOTHBRUSH. since day one! sister seastrand and sister peterson sing to me everynight when i brush my teeth. they sing one thing because i played it on the guitar for them. haha btw seastrand is the american sister who is basically my favorite person, she´s from provo and peterson is from sweden and that girl is seriously an angel. she´s going straight to the celestial kingdom. seastrand is going to madrid with me but peterson is going to barcelona. i could cry.
also there´s a british elder and he´s awesome and loves john mayer and we´re also best friends. hahaha i make him speak to me in an american accent and its the best thing. i´ll have to get a picture with him tonight to show you.
anyways, i´m learning a lot but i can definitely testify that the spirit does not dwell in contentious situations. its almost sad when i get along with 22 other missionaries except for the ONE that i should be getting along with. but its whatever. i´m trying my hardest and thats all i´ve got. i know why i´m out here and i´m trying to give it my all because i know my savior lives and i have to share that with these people.
i love you and everyone so much. i´m constantly just trying to think of what i can do everyday to make everyone proud. i hope its working. peace and blessings ya´ll."
