Sorry for my lack of quality emails. No excuses I'm just getting lazy. However, I always get motivated when I see my buddy Dallin still sending funny emails despite the fact he's been out 3 weeks longer than me. I will not be taken down.
Well, to be honest not a lot happened this week, so maybe this would have been a better week to skip the email. Oh well. I'm already writing so bear with it.
This week I got a migraine and was knocked out most of the week. Not much more needed to be said than that lol. Talked to a specialist and he told me that I am what they call migraines. It's hereditary and nothing much I can do without medicine. Told me to just stick it out and get the medicine when I'm home lol. Funny guy I caught up a lot on my sleep and for the first time in 22ish months I felt really refreshed and lively again lol. Sleep is magical.
Let's see.... did anything else happen this week.... hmmmmmm
It was my birthday on Sunday and lots of people made that day very special. Not sure if it's because of how nice people are or because they felt a feeling of obligation. You see my birthday is on the first week of the month of May meaning that I have my birthday on fast Sunday once every 7 years.
(Okay some people reading this are not members (the majority) and thus don't understand fast Sundays....---> in our church we choose to not eat two meals on the first Sunday of every month. We have many reasons including: wanting to show our love and commitment to God's commandments, to become more humble, receive more blessings, etc...) there is a very brief summary of what it is.
If you understand nothing more just keep in mind I couldn't eat until dinner time (for us missionaries 8:00 or 9:00 at night). Never more have I wanted to pound cake in my face than the day I was restricted since 6:30am haha.
Well, it's been a while, but fasting when you get two cakes made for you is extremely difficult. It's okay though because I pounded basically a full cake that night :)
I'm enjoying life here and am really trying to soak up the rest of the time I have here.
As a buddy of mine once taught me in a time of need: "we always need to be raising the bar, so that we don't recede in our progression" Thanks Elder Hymas :)
Anyways, thanks for the emails, love, and support.
Hope you have a great week!
