It has come that time for me to leave the MTC and go preach to the world!! I leave on Monday, straight to Phoenix. I cannot believe how fast these weeks have gone by. It does not feel like it has been 5 solid weeks. It´s crazy but pretty awesome. My spanish has improved an insane amount! I can get the gist of what people are saying, but responding is still the challenge. Oh well, I´ll get there someday. This week has been weird because I have mixed feelings about leaving. I got my flight itinerary yesterday. I fly straight to Phoenix. Most of my friends have to leave at 2:30 in the morning or so, but I get to leave here at 10:30 in the morning. Lucky me I can actually stay and sleep! It´s awesome that I can say that I am graduating missionary school. lol. It has been a crazy adventure here, and I am excited to see what the field brings. I know that I am going to have to teach lessons in English as well as Spanish, which is going to be weird because I have done nothing but speaking Spanish for the past 5 weeks. I have never taught a lesson in English haha.
Every week is just about the same here so I don´t have too many new things.
It rains pretty often here, and when it rains, OH BOY DOES IT RAIN! Last week, we were in one of the computer labs and there was lightning that struck a light pole right oustide. It was so sketchy hahah.
Also, I am not sure if Hailey Lusk, Mrs. Lusk, reads these but I wanted to thank her for the spanish she taught me! It honestly helped. The way she taught was awesome. Sometimes I will sing the songs in my head or do the actions of the verbs that we made up, and etc. It´s a good way to memorize! hahah thank you!
NOTE: Oh, I got a haircut today! The ladies here are aggressive like goodness gracious. (See below)
