It's August Already?!

This summer has totally flown by! One minute it's May and the next it's August and I haven't done hardly anything I've needed or wanted to! Whatever, life is busy, but only because I make it that way. I was working setting up educational conferences around the state, which was incredibly fun and rewarding, then they didn't know how they were going to pay us for the whole summer, so we bagged that. I still haven't found a job for the fall, people just aren't hiring. That's OK though, I'll just substitute, it's more flexible and pays fairly well, plus there's no pressure. After that, I'm thinking Grad school, but we'll see. First I'd have to figure out how to pay for it.
For those who might read this and not know, I am LDS, a.k.a. a Mormon, the following paragraph contains updates on Spiritual events in my life, enjoy:
I recently got called as the Laurel Advisor in my home ward (I was in a single's ward for a while, but it just wasn't my thing) and that has been a very rewarding experience. I get to teach pretty much every Sunday and it's been so great, mostly because I get more out of it than the girls do I'm sure.
In other spiritual news I recently (Tuesday!) took out my endowments at the Salt Lake Temple. It was an awesome, life-changing experience and I'm so blessed to have had it. Since I have a little more time on my hands, I've decided to go as often (maybe daily!) to the temple until school starts at the end of the month. If you want to come, just give me a call or shoot me an email! Please note, I work part-time in the evenings so I would be going during the day.

All in all, my 25th year is shaping up pretty well. Also, in reference to previous posts where I bemoaned the lack of birthday cake, I would like to note that the reason for not having cake was because we did something else. None of us now can remember exactly what we did, but we did do something.
Life is good.
