We're on the green dot!

I don't even know where to begin. Life couldn't get any better. I'm staying so busy. Almost too busy. During the week, I have to pick and choose what I'm going to get done and make it to. Work everyday from 8-12 is lots better than I thought it would be. I honestly didn't know if I was going to be able to wake up to my alarm. It still takes 3 alarms for me to actually hear it, but I eventually hear it. Infact sometimes it takes 3 alarms and 2 phone calls from my boss before I wake up......yikes. This happened yesterday, and I recieved a phone call earlier today to make sure I was up. Haha. Jamie is the best.I'm sure Yujin just loves being my roommate. :p I set one at 7:00, 7:15, and 7:30. That gives me 15 minutes to say prayers, get dressed, brush teeth, grab some fruit and run out the door.

Prayers have never been answered so clearly. I'll share brief stories.

Praying for missionary and service opportunity....got a call from the institute asking to co direct the missionary committee. Holy cow.

This is just one story. There are many personal stories that have truly influenced my life and so many decisions being made. It's amazing how the Lord works. My testimony of prayer and faith have been strengthened tremedously.

I'm loving being in the General Conference choir. Practices are always such a good experience and the spirit is always present.

Yujin and I have loved TaeBo lately. We both are so tired by the end.

Every weekend is amazing. I get to spend it with Derek, and either my family or his. I always have so much fun. I come back to school extremely tired, but I get to catch up during the week. This last weekend was so good. I can't wipe the smile from my face.

Here is a picture of Derek and I at a Japanese restaurant last friday.
A couple of weekends ago, we went to the planetarium and to a sushi bar. It was a blast.

Funny story about trying to find the sushi bar............So
derek plugs into his Iphone the name of the Sushi place and the starting point, and he hands me the phone to direct us. I led us in a circle a couple times by taking many rights. We finally pull up to a stop sign and I'm way excited because we're on the green dot finally!!! We were so close so many times when turning right over and over again. There is nothing around us! I was so confused! Finally derek looks at the phone and dies laughing. He then says, "The green dot is the starting point!". It takes a real dumb dumb to do something like that. It was super funny.

    Hi my cute niece Amanda! I've discovered your blog! Fun to read about you and what's going on in your life. Hmmm... this Derek looks interesting! I'd say "let's do sushi" someday, but then... maybe not (not a fan of sushi), but I would like to meet him someday! Singing in the choir for general conference??? Wow! I'll look for you... how cool is that? Happy day! Love, your Aunt Karen from sunny Mesa!
