Five Years Ago: Never Before Seen Footage!

You know what happened on September 24th, 2008? Do you remember where you were? And since this blog is all about ME, do you know what I was doing on this day five years ago??

 Well, it was a very big day for me. I entered the Missionary Training Center for a crash course in being a full-time missionary and learning the Romanian language in just eight short weeks. And I can't believe that it was five years ago. Time really flies. But I really want to commemorate that time of my life with a blog post, because the MTC really was a one of a kind experience. Many say that it sucks, but I personally loved it...most of the time.  
I spent all my time with these people...

And I got to meet a lot more amazing people who were being sent all over the world and learning every language imaginable. It was so exciting. In those eight weeks, we were only expected to study, learn, eat, sleep, work out, go to the temple, and listen to amazing speakers like this guy (seriously, this talk is amazing), this guythis lovely woman (another one of my favorites, and...I hugged her!), and many others.

Naturally, there were moments when we went a little stir crazy

Good times. Hope you enjoyed the glimpse into what goes on in the MTC behind closed doors ha. 

Anyway, happy five years to me, and any of my fellow missionaries reading this. So grateful for that amazing time in my life. I'm so glad I had the opportunity to do it!
