New Classes, Hair Cut, Life

Someday when my computer decides to cooperate and not give me an error when I try to upload pictures, I promise I"ll upload bridals and wedding pictures :)

But, in other news, I got my hair cut!

I ended up going a little shorter than I anticipated, but I like it. Plus, my hair grows pretty fast, so it's all good.

Here's a picture. Sorry it's sort of blurry.

Also, Friday night, Kyle and I went down to the Manti Pageant. It was our ward's June activity, so we all camped out at the Temple Hill Resort (aka RV and Campground). We had a lot of fun getting to know some of our ward members better.

The pageant was great of course. So cheesy, and I love it.

Sadly, we forgot the camera/I didn't want to carry it... So, no pictures. I know, boo. I always regret when I decided I don't want to take my camera places. We also were able to do a session in the Manti Temple the next morning, also with some couples in our ward. It was such a neat experience. Manti is one of two temples that does a live session, and it was my first time going through one. I loved it. I just love the temple, and the peace it brings. Kyle and I both have a lot of family history that involves the Manti Temple, so it was extra special for us. Again, no pictures... Sorry.

Now that it's the next day... I forgot what else I was going to write about.

On Sunday, Sarah came over for dinner, and we watched the Count of Monte Cristo! Which of course is an amazing movie. I also received a calling in my ward! I'm now the Relief Society Assistant Secretary. I'm not sure why we have an assistant secretary, but it's all good. I really love being involved in the Relief Society, and the rest of the presidency is so nice, and I'm very excited.

Classes started on Monday. I'm taking Cognitive Development and MComm 320 (Business Writing). Cognitive Development is going to be interesting. My teacher doesn't use PowerPoint (and let's be honest, I'm a big fan of PowerPoint lectures) so it's hard to keep up with him. Each exam is all essay, and he hands out the essay options, and then basically just goes through them for each chapter, which is nice, but still .... just a little different than I'm used to. He does have a lax grading scale though. I think it will be a good class. MComm is different. I think I am definitely going to like it, but let me just say that Management/Business classes are completely different than I am used to. Totally a different world. It will be a lot of work, but all really useful. Plus, she brings food. Yesterday it was fresh strawberries, juice boxes, and Costco muffins. Yum!

Cute haircut! MCom 320 was one of my favorite classes at BYU. It will probably be pretty intense during the summer. Good luck! :)
