-that someday it would ling me back to you
when i first watched it i laughed my head off! jonghyun really needs to improve on his english!

anyway, the weekend has officially come to an end :(
i feel like it was a good weekend though.
i felt really crappy when i had to wake up this morning cause i was up reading my PR notes and so when my alarm went off i thought it was the fire alarm and was soooo confused hahaha.
i must have really been out cause i didn't even hear sam's alarm go off or even hear her moving around getting ready for her 7am meeting hahaha.
church was so good!
we start with relief society now and today we talked about our theme 'learning to love' and i absolutely loved it cause i felt like everything that was said is really going to help me this term.
1. 'God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world' and therefore, God definitely did not send anyone of us down here to condemn the people around us.
2. Loving people you don't know well/strangers. 'Love people irregardless'
3. Find those that are struggling/need love or are perhaps not so loveable and love them
4. Open our hearts - be those with the little picket fence and the 'welcome' sign and not those with the barb wired fence and the 'no trespassing' sign.
-I especially loved this last one because it was so interesting how kim talked about letting boys in with regards to learning to love. Loved that she talked about letting them in even if they're not exactly what we expect them to be as well as not holding back because of fear. Super good advice for me esp. when im really trying to put myself out there now that i've been home from my mission awhile and everyone's encouraging me regarding stuff hahaha.
sunday school was somewhat along the same lines with an emphasis on humility: "We need to remember that though we make our friends, God has made our neighbors - everywhere. Love should have no boundary; we should have no narrow loyalties." (President Howard W. Hunter)
introductions in sunday school was really cute. we all had to say our name, where we're from and what superpower we want.

crashed immediately after church for like 3 hours and then woke up and got ready to go for break the fast. we had a breakfast foods break the fast and so it was pancakes, waffles, fruits, chocolate milk, juice, bacon, etc hahaha. it look and smelled good but once i was halfway through my waffle i felt like puking hahaha.
didn't really get to mingle as much cause everyone sort of just ate and left hahaha.
ward prayer was at our side of the BDA balconies today so yay! it was wayyyy cold though so everyone was shivering hahaha. and then once we were done, a ton of people just left real quick hahaha.
wanted to skype my grandma tonight but it didn't work out too well.
yeah so today was basically a really good rest day and im ready for another crazy week of school? haha
i really should go and iron my clothes and sleep so goodnight!

love,
char
