Lately I have had a lot of little nudgings/promptings that I need to explore all my options as far as careers go. I know, without a doubt, that I could teach seminary the rest of my life, and be 100% happy. I. Love. It. But, just in case that doesn't work out. I have started exploring all my options.
I had to take some things into consideration. First off, I am not anywhere near getting married, so I don't have to worry about where my husbands job or schooling will take me (which isn't a bad worry), and second...with my major, there are a lot of different paths I could take.
I was recently down in Salt Lake visiting my brother who was in the U of U hospital with a collapsed lung and some other things due to him having Cystic Fibrosis. While I was down there, I made a decision.....
University of Utah Medical School......here I come. I am hoping to get accepted into their Nuclear Medicine program starting next July. Only 6 people get accepted a year.....wish me luck. I am heading down there in a couple weekends for an interview with one of the heads of the school of medicine there (a requirement before turning in an application) and we will see where it takes me.
All of this is new and exciting....I am hoping for the best.

I hope I can remember how to do that, because I am in the process of making a huge decision.
I know it will be good. It will always work out, because my life has always been very good and has always worked out. However, sometimes I don't know why once you think you have things figured out, you find out, or should I say, get a little gentle nudging to change things up a bit. (AKA: a LOT)
We shall see what happens.

I seriously have the best roommates in the world. This is just 3 of them, I don't have pictures of the other two, but I have never ever been this blessed with all solid roommates. I've always had a few each semester that I click with, but this semester I have 5 awesome roommates that are so so so so fun! I wouldn't change it for anything! So, Kylee, Mary, Lex, Mikelle, and Casey, let the good times continue to roll!!

So, for day #1, I am SO grateful for my family. I have been reminded lately that we never know how long we have with our family members, we never know when one of us is going to accomplish our missions here on earth, and be called back home to our Heavenly Father, so we need to make every single day count.
I seriously have the best family in the whole entire world. We aren't perfect, and sometimes we will have our minor disagreements, but we have so much fun together. It is amazing to me that we can have so much fun together doing the smallest things.

However, David, (the one in the striped shirt in the picture) has taught me a lot especially lately. He has once again reminded me of the importance of never giving up and always being positive. If I had CF, I would not be a pleasant person, and yet with him, you would never even know anything was wrong, other than thinking he had a cough.
So, thank you Dave, for once again reminding me of the importance of hanging tough and being strong. You are a great example of faith and diligence.

I am loving teaching the D&C and being able to relfect on some of the feelings that I had while serving in Illinois and the faith of the early saints. It has been great.
