Life is....

always made better by BYU Creamery Chocolate Milk....even when life is already going great!

Life is also funny sometimes. I love BYU and I've missed it. It's funny because I definately did not feel this way two years ago. In fact, I hated it here. I did not know why so many people liked it when the classes were so hard, you were just one of the many faces, and everyone seemed so wrapped up in their own lives. A lot has changed since then I've learned what a great place this is. Here are some reasons why.

- The Mountains. Beautiful, but also gives a sense of direction.

- The Classes. While hard, you always are learning something and professors are always willing to help you outside of class. They even manage to learn your name.

- Campus. It's always clean, the walkways are clear in the winter and then come spring, there are always tulips.

- Devotionals and Firesides. Sunday night I saw President Monson and today Elder Holland. I didn't use to go to devotionals on Tuesdays, but I find them to be a great way to relax during the week and re-evaluate my priorities.

- Friendly People. I used to think they were always fake (which sometimes they might be) but then when you've had two great classes, listened to devotional, did homework and drank creamery chocolate milk, you really are just happy, so why not say hi to strangers?

- Friends. I've made fantastic friends and I've been able to learn something new from all of them. I love running into them on campus and remembering the great times I had with them.

- Church. From great devotionals, to fun wards, to sharing testimonies in class, BYU has been a "spiritual high" like everyone has said. It's a great environment to learn in and it also is a great way to see the Lord's hand in everything.

Yep, I turned into an advocate of BYU. And just think, I did that without ever having gone to BYU football game. :) But I still bleed

Oh yeah, and add the Creamery to the list. It provides a place for freshmen dates, great ice cream, and of course, CHOCOLATE MILK!
