1. Back in school this spring, I kicked butt. Sometimes I feel really behind my peers since I won’t graduate until next December, but I don’t really mind. I have finally found a subject I am passionate about and I love my classes! The official name of my degree is Health Promotion and Education.

2. I have been working at The Kura Door since September, but just this week my schedule has changed so that I won’t work Friday nights anymore. This makes me SO happy.

The Kura Door is a holistic Japanese Spa. It is such a beautiful space. Even James like to come in, which I thought I would never see. On second thought, he may be a little shy about how much he likes it. 🙂

3. A few days ago I was having a panic attack (‘stressplosion’ as James calls it) while coming to my whits end about my calling as stake camp director. Thankfully most of that has subsided, since I have FINALLY found a good location.

I now believe in karma because when I was at camp, I would hide in my tent to avoid skits and other activities.  Now I’m in charge of planning skits and getting girls excited… this is really going to test my acting skills!

4. The best thing about summer is all the free time I have to READ!! I just finished the millenium series, or the Girl with the Dragon Tatoo series. Don’t start this series- It is totally graphic and disgusting. Having said that, it has great characters, writing, and addicting stories. I have a love/hate relationship with these books.

5. I am trying to become a decent cyclist. I went all the way to the top of emigration canyon (I had only gone up 3/4 way last year) and wasn’t even sore the next day. My goal is to do a century ride by next summer.

6. I have been in a rut when it comes to crafting and cooking the last few months. I have been too busy. I don’t know how people go to school full time and work full time. It is the worst. I am cutting way back this fall- I don’t care what we have to sacrifice, that is just too much to handle. Now I find myself reading with my free time. I started a zig-zag quilt in January and I am about 1/2 way done, but haven’t started it back up yet. Same with cooking…. I have lost the desire to cook more that twice a week, and then I don’t find any joy in it. Hopefully all of this will change before school starts up again.
