So here was today in a nutshell: Woke up late so went straight to work at 9. Left just after 1 to take my Business App test which I did really well on! 967/1000 and a pass was 660. Then I went back to work for 30 minutes, prayed, napped, studied, organized clothes, raced to get ready and then went to Speech Banquet. All six speeches were SUPER good.

While life at college is crazy but it has really added perspective and makes you appreciate the little things in life. It is certainly the happiest I have ever been in my life. It’s amazing how that if you are organized (which I could...

Sunday, March 13: Robbers Cave Edition
So on Wednesday morning we left for Robbers Cave. I wasn’t feeling the best so I slept on the way, but once we got there we quickly set up our beds and then went for a hike to Robbers Cave!! It was lots of fun. We took a short cut under a fence and across a dam type thing to the river. The guys helped us across and then we went up to Robbers Cave. Some of the guys ventured into a bat cave...
