Part 2

{I thought about cramming everything in my mind into one post but that would've ended up being a novel sooo I'm posting twice. In one day. WHOA.}

After listening to Conference, I felt like I could conquer to world and basically handle anything. There was so much on overcoming trials, having faith, and scripture reading, which were all things I really needed to hear. I'm not even sure if there was a specific talk on this but I left with the distinct feeling that I need to trust Heavenly Father. Completely. A couple weeks ago I was just having a really hard time knowing what I should do. After stewing in indecision for a while, I realized that I don't have all of the answers and never will. So I've decided that if I'm making the best choices that I can and being the best person I can be, then things will work out. I've learned that I need to trust in a higher power and to not rely on myself for everything. I've learned this but I'm still working on the application part. It's coming though.

I've also realized how blessed I am. I have an amazing family that loves me and sends me goodies in the mail, great friends, and fantastic roommates. One of my roommates, Hillary, is engaged and I'm so excited for her! She's getting married in December so we might have a new roommate next semester. But I'm so glad I've gotten to know her. She's so funny and silly. She makes me laugh on a daily basis. I'm so happy to be living with Jessica and Carly as well. I know that I can go to them if I need anything. It can be from needing advice or a hug to wanting to run to 7/11 for Ben&Jerry's Half Baked {I'm addicted..}

Look at how beautiful they are :) {Plus Jilly of course!}

Jessica: This girl is amazing. I can't even begin to express how much she's impressed me this year. She's my other half, my partner in crime, my cousin, and one of my best friends. We've had so many great conversations, runs to Redbox, and "what do I wear?!" moments. I'm glad we're roommates and that we've gotten closer. And...I love her closet.

Carly: She is one of the best listeners I have ever met. I've had some of the best conversations with her during the year I've known her. She's got some of the best one-liners I've ever heard. I'm so happy we're living together and I'm excited for everything that is to come.

I'm so lucky.

Man, I love college.
Especially BYU.
