Week Two

Okie doke so not much changes week to week here at the MTC but I'll ty to say any interesting things.
-Since we dont exactly have a ton of free time, we make the most of it. The other night we got off the field after gym and hopped in the shower. i dont know who started it but we jammed hard. like the entire floor probably hated us an we sung/screamed at the top of our lungs but we arent even close to sorry.
-we also had a guy move up from the beginner class to the intermediate class with us. His name is Elder Menendez and he is quite the character. he always talks with a fake nacho libre type mexican accent. and also farts a lot. like with any one else it would be embarrasing and annoying but hes just hillarious. maybe its just cause we're a bunch of dudes but still. we doorknob him all the time (basically if he farts and we call doorknob before he says safety, we get to punch him till he touches a doorknob). He claims theres either a clown in his stomach constantly blowing up balloons or theres a zeppelin down there but anyway, enough of that.
-We have a lot of personal study time here so i decided, since im a bit of a fan of nature, to find a bunch of nature scriptures and such. a couple favorites
Doctrine and Covenants 88:45-46 "The earth rolls upon her wings, and the sun giveth his light by day, and the moon giveth her light by night, and the stars also give their light, as they roll upon their wings in their glory, in the midst of the power of God.
Unto what shall I liken these kingdoms, that ye may understand?"
Matthew 6:28-29 "And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin;
And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these."
but seriously. nature is so pretty all the time. i dont care how cool the next skyscraper or gizmo is, it cant compare to nature's infinite and constantly changing beauty. also i doodle a lot to stay awake during lecture type lessons so ya

-next while kinda on the subject, sunset soccer will never get old. i mean just look at this beauty #nofilter

also during the later classes and study times i try to be outside as much as possible cause stars are sweet.
-theres and oak tree right by the outside door to the building my spanish classes are in and it drops acorns and i dont know how to explain it but please meet Corporal Henderson

​ They both have compelling backstories and everything but ill save that for some other time.
-moral of the story, make dull moments great and have fun doing what your doing no matter what it is. have the most wonderful week and i love you all!
