Kevin's Two Year Date
Sometimes when I don’t feel like explaining that I’m waiting on a missionary, I just tell everyone he’s in a band.
I always miss the Saturday sessions of conference because of work.
Ugh. So I’m still waiting on a form from my school, and the w-2 from my last job. It’s annoying because I can’t do an e-z form this year, and will probably have to do long form since I am also factoring in tithing (anyone else doing that?).
I’m just stressed out, and want to get it over with already. I’m also worried that getting them done will cost more, or be equal to what my return is. I’d like to at least get something back :/
How are things going with your taxes?
If I can wait four years in agony for Fall Out Boy to come off of hiatus, I can certainly wait two years for Kevin to come home.
Co Worker: Does your boyfriend go to school in Portland also?
Me: Not right now, he’s actually away on business.
Co Worker: Oh, a suit and tie kinda guy huh?
Me: Very much so :)
My best male friend wants to take me on a date today. I think it’s like a friend date because he knows how much I have been missing my missionary lately… But he told me to get cute and dress like it’s a casual date and I just. Abort mission.
Kevin and I never talked about this.
Anonymous said: can mormons be friends with non members? does it prove to be more difficult if the friend is one that goes out and parties, and gets drunk/does weed, or sleeps around? I'm kind of struggling with this. Also were you raised mormon or are you a convert?
I’m a convert, and have been a member for about two years. I have many friends who aren’t a part of the church, and that’s ok. I think that as long as our friends love and accept us as latter day saints, that we should be able to love and accept them for whatever they may be also. We don’t necessarily have to be a part of, or agree with their personal habits, and they don’t have to agree with our habits either. I think friendship is very much possible as long as there is a mutual respect; I mean, I wouldn’t want my friends to pressure me to do things that make me uncomfortable, so I try not to pressure them to do things that make them uncomfortable, or constantly tell them that the things they are doing aren’t good according to my beliefs, (because of just that: they are my, personal beliefs). And if you are really uncomfortable with something, it is always ok to say so, because you’re friends, and not many people intentionally want to make their friends uncomfortable. In personal experience, compromise has always been a help (like, one of my friends goes outside to smoke, or they don’t ask me to come over if they plan on getting crunk. Stuff like that) I hope this was of some help to you! It’s hard sometimes, but very possible. Thanks for asking :)
Even after not seeing me for 11 months, Elder Holm noticed my hair cut when we skyped on Christmas.
A+ boyfriend right there.
To make sure that I was going to be at his house on Christmas to talk to him! I missed his first call, and he left a voicemail. THEN HE CALLED BACK. It was just a quick like “hey I love you, you going to be at my house? I haven’t sent Christmas stuff yet, I’m sorry, but I love you sweetheart,” type conversation, BUT STILL.
I’m on cloud nine today guys.
I haven’t had a lot of time recently, but today, it is happening!
It’s basically going to be me singing love songs badly in the car, and buying things for Elder Holm’s Christmas package.
