I can't believe I just created a blog

I don't know what the heck I was thinking, but all of a sudden I got the urge to create a blog. I can't quite explain it. All I know is that a few days ago, I was talking to a good friend, Emily Chambers about journal-writing and I decided tonight that I wanted to share some thoughts that I get every now and then. Bueeeno! So here I am.

Many people know that I've established this semester to be The Semester of Dallas. Since the beginning of October, I have been planning out what my new schedule would be like for this semester. Everything worked out great. The only change I made had to do with Accounting 210. I was going to take it but then decided against it. Instead I'm taking a history class which covers a GE requirement. Exciting. Seriously. I love history now for some reason. Three years ago, before my mission, I hated it. I hated reading. Ironically, I also told myself I would never ever make a blog. How stupid I thought it was. Look at me now. Put a 180 degree change on each of those things and that's a little somethin' somethin' about me. There's a song from the Brady Bunch sung by the kids in an episode when they were recording something during the time Peter's voice was changing, and in a real funny voice he would sing "It's time to chaaange and to rearrange." Crazy. That's kinda what a mission has done to me. I feel like I've been rearranged. Me gusta. Me gusta mucho.

I'll lay it out upfront; my reasoning for creating a blog is primarily to put down my thoughts. What a person constantly thinks about is what they become, so the plan is to make it good. Based on that logic, hopefully I don't become like Peter and have my voice change...again. So hopefully I don't completely forget about this die off. I think it would be fun to put down my thoughts. Get in my brain!!
