First off I want to say that I was blessed to hear from an apostle of the Lord this past weekend. Elder Scott came to our Stake Conference. It was everything good and wonderful. I have a great love for this man. He spoke right to my heart. Oh the church is TRUE!!! I even got to shake his hand TWICE! I love love love the Gospel.
I realize that there has been a lack of posts on this blog. And my only response is because I have nothing to say. Shocking I know. This transition to the post graduated world has been interesting. I have my own room, a big bed, a TV/DVD, bathroom, living room, closet, shelves, and lots of time. Normally a person would be thrilled with all these things to them self. I admit it is nice. Yet, it's a bit lonely. During the day I hold down the fort while my "roommates" are at work at school. The dog, can be company, but it's not much of a social atmosphere during the day. I do enjoy spending time with my family and helping around the house whenever I can.
I try to find activities to fill up my time at night. I've started attending institute...this is a first for me. So far so good, but I've only been to one class. The singles ward has some activities during the week. I back to square one, I really don't have any friends so it's back to the basics. I keep telling myself that this is good for me, to get out of my comfort zone and make new friends. I forget how hard it can be at times. I am making a conscious effort to attend all ward activities and to be an active member of the ward. My dad said that being active will creative activity. I hope that I will be able to make some friends and have fun.
As for the job hunt, I'm in the process of elimination. Lucky for me I don't have to do the elimination I'm the one being eliminated from each job I apply for. The market is tough right now, but I have great hope and faith in the future. I'm really just trying to do my part and let the Lord guide and direct me. I love my field of study and it would be a dream to land a job in the area of recreation. But with the economy the way it is right now funds are being cut and it's harder to find a job. So, I'm looking elsewhere. As long as I am working with people and helping them make their life better in someway I can be happy. It's nice that I really don't have many expenses right now. So my bank account is completely depleting.
Now for those of you who do read this all the way through please know that I still am a happy clam. I know that the Lord has great things in store for me. I have found joy in the journey and that is the blessings that come from the gospel. I have a goal this year to read The New Testament. I'm coming to know my Savior in a new light. I've re-read a favorite talk -- A More Determined Disciple This talk has changed my life and brought more hope and faith. Please enjoy.
Now if any of you know of a job I could apply for please let me know, I am a hard worker.
