Und es begab sich...
Apparently, I've not much time, so I'll just throw words at the screen and hope they make sense.
Hey! How's everyone doing? I'm pretty okay, myself. I've become a note-taking FIEND like unto Rachel, though I've not had as much practice as her. I may have to switch to another computer.
Oh! my Normandie notebook somewhat broke at the spine, but it's still functional.
I'm writing in my journal every night.
The Spirit is so strong here!
You should be expecting a nice, long letter soon.
I'm not really sure what to say, except that I love you, and I miss you.
Send thicker knee-highs; my tan pair died a noble death. Also, some extra garments; exercise causes SWEAT, did you know that?
Ich lerne Deutch so schnell! Not so fast as I'd like, but you know.
The majority of my information will probably have to be in letters, though email is much faster, since I only get a half hour to read and respond. Abuse DearElder! I miss you entirely too much fiveminutesleftcrap.
Please, please, please tell people to write me! Stalk the blog! Anything! I feel like I'm on an island!
I've made a goal to read all of Alma before I'm out of the MTC.
My departure date still seems to be Jan. 7. If you could get Dad to work that out with Mark...? That would be great.
Um! David, keep playing. Maggie, keep singing. Chelsea, keep studying and stop stalking my blog so much! If you have time to read, write me!
Daddy, I love you, and I have your rules written in my Normandie notebook (the broken one, haha). Mimi, I miss your hugs (and your food).
Pa, I miss your hugs sooooo much.
Im Namen Jesu Christi, Amen.
Okay, so I found another computer. Apparently, they don't all have timers. (Just the one.)
So, where was I...?
Dear To The Heart Of The Shepherd is a new favorite hymn. I've been singing a lot of things auf Deutch of late, for some reason. I really can't imagine why. I'm learning it stupidly fast, by the way.
Also, send more ink, if possible. I've been writing so much I've going through it like Maggie through outfits.
Companions are summoning me. "I must go; they'll wonder where I am!"
