I started school at the U and it was definitely a drastic change. It is a massive school that isn't a church school and it was hard to get used to. I really missed Hawaii and I didn't know anybody and to be honest, I wasn't liking it very much at first. I was just doing my own thing and going on with my life, not paying attention to anyone around me. But I can say that I have started to adjust and things are going good now. I still miss Hawaii and all of my friends out there, but you have to move on with your life sometimes. This was just a change in my life that I had to get used to and I'm starting to get used to it. I've met a few people in my classes and I'm getting in to the swing of things so it's not as bad as it was at first. Plus, I got a job so that's been keeping me pretty busy. It's at a place called the Corner Bakery Cafe and I'm a server/cashier there. It's actually really good. It has good food and I like the people I work with, for the most part, and it's fun to socialize with the people that come in. However, it definitely does suck sometimes, not gonna lie. But I guess that's the case with any job right? So school and work are still going good. Just going to class, doing homework, going to work, and going to sleep. That's my life right now!
An exciting thing that happened was the fact that I bought a car!! After 3 weeks of looking everywhere and dealing with car dealers I finally found one that I liked that fit my price range and was approved of by my parents. It's a 2008 Mazda 6 that only had 41,000 miles on it and I actually got a good deal on it so I'm happy. Now that I've driven it more I love it even more! That is what is pictured below. :)
This past weekend I got to spend some time with my 2 little nephews Braxton and Preston and that was a lot of fun. We built a fort in our front room after Kaelyn's mom's wedding (which was my idea haha) and then I got to spend some time with them before and after church. So that was a lot of fun. Here are some pictures. The first is us in the fort and the second is right before I left for church.
As for anything else, today is my 21st birthday and I can't believe it. I feel so old! Sometimes I don't even feel like I should be in college and I'm already in my 3rd year of school and I'm now 21! Pretty crazy... It's been a pretty good day though. Nothing too exciting happening. Just my awesome friends and family saying happy birthday to me, which is great! I'm going out to dinner to the best Chinese restaurant tonight, Asian Star, and I'm so excited for it! I can't even remember the last time I went there, probably in May for Dustin and Kaley's wedding dinner thing! Holy cow! So needless to say, I'm excited. My parents are taking me and my sister-in-law, Kaley, is coming with us too! It should be fun. Then Sunday is my birthday dinner with my family and we're having spatzle. It's going to be really good and fun to see everyone because Lauren is coming down for her Spring Break so it's going to be awesome to see everyone. I think that's pretty much about it! Hopefully I remember to take at least 1 picture of me on my birthday and try to remember to put that on here.
P.S. For anyone out there that's interested, Elder Zachariah Miller comes home in 8 weeks from today!! 56 DAYS!!!! The end. :D
