3 weeks late

Yeahhhhh, I kind of suck at writing on this blog. Since I haven't been working I haven't had the time.
Since that totally makes sense right?
Usually a regular person would have more time to do things when they don't work. But somehow, I found the time to when I did. Because blogging whilst at work is obvi the most productive! WHATEVA.

Okay, so I told you last time that I would tell you how my talk went. That was 3 weeks ago and I forgot how it went hahah SORRY!
But basically all you need to know about my little 7 minute talk was that:
  • The only thing people remembered from my talk was how many times I said the work 'like'
  • B (my BFF) started counting halfway through and counted me saying it 20+ times. 
  • I was hilarious
Basically that's it! Also, let me expound on the third bullet.
Humility level 2: EVERYONE LOVED ME
I was totally being hilarious without really trying and everyone was dying. No bigs. 

Okay, back to being humble again.
I am super grateful for my ward in WV. I took it for granted. I never realized how much I felt welcomed, loved and the strong spirit that was there. Being in West Virginia for the little under 2 years that I was there, my testimony grew immaculately. I never knew what it was like to go to church because you want to go and learn rather than going because everyone does it and it's apart of a weekly routine. I never knew how much courage it took to go to church by yourself when you have no clue who anybody was. I never knew what it was like having to start over and make new friends. But because I was blessed to live in WV for the time that I did, I am now able to say "I know what that's like." All of the people and missionaries that I've met in WV have definitely influenced my life for the better and I couldn't be happier to have  met them. It is true about the saying that's like: you don't know what you're missing until it's gone, or whatever. Because I sure miss it there, WAY more that I thought. But, it's been a fun run. I'm not planning on going back after my mission. I don't think it would be the same, no matter how much I would want it to. But I'm glad I'm moving on in my life and taking the steps of growing up. 

The church is true!
