A post of awesome stuff...

I suddenly have the urge to write on here. Funny how that happens, eh? Well, we've just got back to school (on Monday) after a two week Easter break. It was really nice to have a break, and pretty much much needed. Now it's the final sprint before the end of college. Just eight weeks to go before exams are over. I cannot wait. I've actually been revising - not a ton - but quite a bit. I really do want to do good in them. I need to get the grades if I'm going to be allowed on the BYU campus.

Talking of BYU, I am SO SO SO stoked to be going... It's seriously so exciting. During the Easter holidays, I got to pick a room to, so now everything's so much more real. For some reason, I was one of the last males to get to choose, but I've got an apartment in the Wyview Park, and I've already looked up one of my roommates, Kallan, on Facebook. He's really awesome, really Spiritual, and we both like the same kinda things. Like Owl City, Nutella toasties, and girls. :) Just a few of the best things in life... Now, I've just got to endure to the end of this academic year, and then it's summer, and then off to the Y...

The Easter break was good though. Some days I did almost nothing, while other days I was revising, working, cleaning the car, going on a bike ride, all that kinda stuff. We ate out as a family a couple of times, which was great. And one of the coolest missionaries ever came back to our area on a swap, and we had them over for dinner. Conference was awesome. I always feel the Spirit so strongly listening to Conference, and at the end of the weekend I feel like Alma, when he says that he wishes he was an angel so he could preach repentance to all the inhabitants of the Earth. I love it... It makes me want to be so much more righteous, and I feel so much closer to my Heavenly Father...
One Sunday, Jake and I went to visit Natasha and Lauren in their ward, and then they had us back for films and a gorgeous roast dinner. It's so nice to just go and meet friends and hang out. Like after work on Saturday, Jake and I decided to hang out in the evening, and then ended up cruising to Adventure Island. We had an hour there before it closed, but it was really fun. Then the cherry on top of the evening was when Jake was sick on some lady's jeans at the end of the ride! Apparently she didn't even notice. We got off, and he was like, "I've just been sick...", and I hadn't noticed, and thought he was joking, but he really had! Poor guy. It was funny though...

One evening at the end of the holidays, I went with Dad to see the Under 21s British Speedway Championship, like last year. It was so good, and some races were so intense. The main three riders competing for the #1 spot were Tai, Lewis, and Joe. They were in the final, and they all really wanted to win. In the end, Joe managed to take the lead, with Tai in 2nd. It was a great evening...

So, this has been kinda random, but it's good to quickly write down fun things that have happened. The weather has been so nice recently as well, with the sun shining beautifully. It's been good to go on bike rides and go swimming, and enjoy life... Now, I've gotta focus on school work and revision for just a couple more months, and then it's all over. Not just college, but probably life in England for quite a while. I know I've said it already, but it really is exciting. I can't wait...
