I broke up with Jessica a couple of weeks ago and feel good about it. She is a great girl with a lot of awesome qualities, but I just couldn't see a future in it. So, I am learning little by little more and more about what I want and more importantly what I need in a wife. Other than the cankle thing which I have know for a long time. ha ha. I am trying to make sure that I do all I can to find a girl here in Provo if I am supposed to. I have a good feeling about Jerusalem too. You know any girl who is courageous enough to go study in a war zone (well not really) but a fairly risky place is what I am all about. There will be 2 girls to every boy there, so I am excited about that.
I went and reserved a cap and gown the other day and took a sweet picture with Cosmo the BYU mascot, but I don't have a digital copy of it to put up. So just imagine me with a stuffed cougar making a tough face. I can't believe that I am about to graduate from college! April 26 is the University commencement and the 27th is the one where I walk with the other graduates in my College (communications) so that is pretty exciting eh? Anybody who wants to come is more than welcome. I realize that you probably can't but the invite is there. Crazy!!!!
I ran into an elder that I taught in the MTC earlier today. He was a great elder and has now been home for 8 months, which means I have been back for a long time now. But as I talked with him and reflected on the things that I have been able to do over the past 2 and a half years, I gotta say that I am pretty dang lucky. Holy Cow. I lived a lucky and blessed life. And I have the most amazing family there is. From M&D changing the world to Charity "dripping with passion" in Jerusalem to Noah and Kristi in the dust in NYC to everyone in the desert to Saydi and Jeff hanging out with their African neighbors is Malden. What a family eh?
Had a great dinner up at my friend Ashley's house from London tonight. Her parents invited a bunch of us from Londy up for Steaks tonight. mmm boy. On top of the places I have been, I have really met some incredible people, friends that will last a long time. Well, it is late, got lots of reading and writing to do this week and the Pothiers are coming to Ptown for a visit on their way up to SLC tomorrow. Life is beauty. My hair is really long to the point where I get looked at funny on campus. I have a phobia of haircuts. It is those darn Japanese haircutters. Love you all.
