A Preview of Good Things To Come


It really pains me that I haven't kept up on blogging. It's not that I didn't have the time, I just didn't feel like I had anything to blog about!!

Or maybe I just got hit with a nasty case of severe laziness, due to the comfortableness of my bed and the fact that college is hard.

You decide.

BUT! That time has now passed. Hardworking Kaela (who is blogging instead of studying for finals) is back! I promise. Because good things are ahead. Great things. Things that are (finally) blog-worthy.

My friends, I really hope you remember this.

Blogging Basketball/Volleyball Co-ed was such a golden thing to blog about because such strange stuff happened every day. The walk-out, the pants incident, archery...and the list goes on.

To be honest, strange stuff happens to me every day. Too much to blog about. But...yeah. Most of you should know that about me by now.

Anyways, I've been waiting for something to come along with similar potential, but it's been difficult. I could have blogged about working at Seven Peaks this summer, because that certainly had the potential, but I never had time. I could be blogging about the dorm life, but that would just be story after story of Maggie and I making weird sounds at each other, and regular complaints about trying to take a shower during visiting hours. Aaaaaaaaaaaand mission talk. Lots and lots of mission talk because that's all I really think about! So I've been sparing you, up to a point.

But I think I've found something with the golden potential that Basketball/Volleyball Co-ed had, only I feel like this will be a much more positive experience.

As of today...or maybe yesterday, or Monday or something, I am officially an employee at the MTC. The one in Provo, in case any of you were confused.

Anyways, my job is to go in at 6 AM every morning and do various custodial tasks. I would explain more, but you'll just have to wait for my first post. Even the whole interview process was blog-worthy, so look forward to that.

So, I got a job, and I'll be blogging about that soon. I'm pretty excited because hopefully I'll have both funny stories and actual learning experiences that will help me prepare for my mission that I can share on here, because those are always good.

But that isn't the only thing to look forward to! I've got ex-boyfriends leaving on missions, which means I have TONS of great stories I've been waiting YEARS to blog about. For example, The Awkward Date of Spring Break 2011. A more golden story has never been told. Failed duck hunting and manly competitiveness....good times.

Awkward journal entries from middle school about people who I've been waiting to leave on their missions? Check.


Most importantly, though, as much as I try to make this blog funny, I'm also in serious mission prep mode, so hopefully I'll be posting more stuff on here about what I'm doing to prepare for a mission, insights about the gospel, you know, spiritual things and all of that good stuff. Which I used to be pretty good at blogging about, but like I said, I've gotten really lazy.

So be excited!! Because I am. Many good things are ahead.
