Westmini....turns out thats the cool way around here to refer to Westminster.

Today was moving day. It started out to be a very emotional day; as was stated in the last post [haha]. But here I am...happy and with positive feelings toward this college experience. :) Who whouldda thought? Today I was met with several things that put my heart to rest. Here are just a few of the happy things that I discovered upon moving up to beautiful Sugar House.

#1 I HAVE MY OWN ROOM!!! Man, I don't know how I got so lucky to move into the upper classmen dorms but here I am....301A all to myself. I had no idea all of us would have our own rooms so this was a great surprise. I am a girl who needs her own space...and having a place where I can retreat to and have all to myself (with a door that locks!) is such a blessing.

#2 Great institute program! After I got here we went down to meet with the different organizations that are offered here on campus. Our first stop was the institue/student ward- so great! Everyone was so friendly and welcoming- what they say about the church is so true, you really do have friends everywhere you go. I am looking forward to getting involved with the ward!

#3 Theater Box Office Job! Well this isn't for certain....but its looking good. I qualified for Work/Study so that automatically puts me as first priority. I'm just glad I won't have to work fast food.

#4 Good Drinking Water! K, I know this sounds silly but I was pleasantly surprised when I took a drink out of the drinking fountain. Turns out all of the water on campus is "filtered and chilled." Score.

#5 Mailbox in the lobby! I was super excited about this; getting letters in the mail is my favorite thing! I am looking forward to writing and receiving letters for/from my friends on missions.

Thats enough for now. I will sleep soundly in my ikea bedset tonight. Love to you all!
