It doesn't matter how many times I have experienced fall, it still amazes me how beautiful our nature is and how great our Heavenly Father is. It clearly takes a broad imagination to create a world like ours.

A lot of changes happened this week, comfortable and uncomfortable ones. One that I can share is that my education plan has changed. Dum dum duuuum.. Don't worry I am still doing News Media. However, I'll probably be minoring in two other majors... one that I know for sure will be, International Development. Why? Well, the journalism program I am applying for only offers their classes, Fall and Winter semester. Which leaves me with an empty spring semester and whole lots of credits I have to take in order for me to be a full-time student. Also, due to me being done with all my Generals, I have a lot of "spare time" in school. So... It's very complicated and stressful. I have so many options to choose from. I could either go home and work during Spring/Summer semester, I could do two minors and major, OR I could double major. How sick is that..! I figured out that majoring in News Media, have two minors in different fields and an associate in applied communication would be the ideal thing to do. So this being said, I won't graduate in 2019 as planned but in 2020.

Something I've realized this past year is the way you plan your life is not the way God plans it. Some uncomfortable or unplanned changes are meant to happen and there is a reason behind it. You just have to accept it, embrace it and see what's next to come. This change was not something I had planned and it made me worried about my future and finances and stuff cause being international IS NOT easy and cheap. But with God on my side, I really believe that everything will work out.

How is it possible that it's already October? Fall is officially here. The leaves are making their way down, covering the asphalt in beautiful colors. The crispy air is as thin as nothing and it is so easy to breathe. I love fall; oversized sweaters, rainy days, boots, hot chocolate, movie nights, books and so much more. I can't wait to enjoy this upcoming season. 

This weekend was the semi annual general conference for my church and I just felt God's love for me and all of his children, as I was partaking of his words through the apostles and elders that spoke. It amazes me how great his work is and how happy this gospel makes me. God is real, people. I just know it. deep in my heart, he has blessed me in so many different ways and seeing his hand in my life brings me peace. I try to worry less cause you know, he has a plan for me, and for all of us.

Life's good. I'm breathing. I'm smiling. School is hard, but it's going. I won't lie to you, being in such a professional environment, aka BYU, makes you feel very small and I'm not really used to feel this way. I feel like people around me are so intelligent, smart and knows their stuff ... It is overwhelming but it also makes you more humble. I heard that it is common to feel this way but I honestly didn't think it would hit me like it did. It forced me to take a step back, take a deep breath, remember who I am and what my goals are. Don't get me wrong, I love being here and I love BYU. It is very very different from anywhere else I have lived, but it's different in a good way. I've met so many amazing people here. I just love how this institution brings me closer to my Heavenly Father. So, what I gotta do tomorrow is to get involved in the campus life and get my game going. This was a messy, short post. I just wanna say that I'm alive. I don't update very often anymore and I need to change that. School and friends are just keeping me very busy and I liiike it.

Peace out.

The funny thing is, I wrote in my last post that I wasn't planning on working this semester, due to my full schoolwork load. However, I kinda didn't live up to that statement. So the day after I posted my blogpost, a woman from the university, contacted me and asked me if I wanted to work. I had no idea how she knew who I was but someone had told her about me. So yeah, I was offered a position as the Swedish Language Café Coordinator . So basically, I'll be talking Swedish and helping students that are taking the Swedish classes on campus. I'm super stoked, to help them out and just talk Swedish haha. Today I went to out to the different classes and introduced myself which felt SO weird haha, I just started this new uni. and I'm already visiting classes. I feel super blessed though!

Today marks my last day of summer. School kicks off tomorrow and my guts are telling me that this semester will be fun but a hard one. I am signed up to take 6 classes but I'm considering to drop my Political Science class. It would just be too stressful to take 17 units, and also, my POLI class isn't necessary at the moment. Interested in what classes I'm enrolled in? Well, I'll be taking "Intro to News Media," "Mass Communication and Society," "Writing and Rhetoric," "American Heritage," "Doctrine and Covenant" and "Political Science." I decided not to work this semester so that I can focus 110% on school. The second week of January is when I'm gonna have to apply for the School och Communication Broadcasting Program, and I'd have to have good grades in my Comms classes and also take a grammar test, write essays and go on interviews just to make it to the program. I'm so nervous but excited as well. So that's why I have to give my all on school.

However, I want to join the BYUSA, BYU student association and involve in service events in our community. So I might stop by their office tomorrow.

Well, that's it for me right now. I'm about to head out to spend the night at Kaiya's new place. I hope you all have a good Labor Day!

OH MAN. What a week. I have had so much fun this week. Wedding reception for Kaiya, NSO orientation, new friends, food exploring, music festival, salt lake city, baking the Y and so much more. I couldn't end summer in a better way honestly. It just so awesome that there is so much to do in this town, there's always something going on which is fun! I can't wait to get to know the place better.

Happy labor day weekend!

Its official! I'm officially a proud Utah resident! I got here on Friday but I've been too busy to be active on the blog. So yeah, I drove all the way from California to Utah, mind you it's a 12 hour drive, by myself. I woke up at 4:30 am and hit the road around 5:30 am Friday morning. I did three stops. The first one in Baker, then Las Vegas and a last stop in Nephi. I believe the highest heat wave a reached was 105 degrees (40 C) in Nevada. I was so scared my car would over heat and I'd have to pull over but thank goodness everything went well. There were so many cars on the side of the road with cars that had broken down.. Thanks to some good music and good food, I was able to drive 12 hours straight without getting tired.

Utah has been treating me good. We stayed at Yajaira's new house the first couple of nights which was so nice hence to being homeless. But we moved into our new apartment on Monday and I'm sooo satisfy with it. I have my own room, my own vanity and entrance to the restroom in my room. When I'm done decorating my room I'll snap some pictures!

So school doesn't start until sep 5th but my Political Science professor already gave us readings to do.. 100 pages a week and that's only for one of my five classes.. haha imma die this semester..so I have to do some reading before I go to bed tonight 😂

It feels good to be here. What feels even better is that Mosiah is home for the summer, I've missed his face so much. 8 months without your best homie is hard. No we're not a couple haha, but he is still mine though, maaa beeestiie for life. Everyone should have a Moh, just makes life more fun to live.

I'm bummed that I'm leaving this place, however, at the same time I'm so ready to move on and begin new adventures. My car is now stuffed with all my belongings, so I'm pretty ready, set and go.

So I need to tell you, flying with American Airlines was bomb. So Jennie and I flew with Qatar airways to London. We stayed at my aunties house. Gosh, it was so good to see my family again and the fact that I now have two cousin families in London is LIT. Anyways, that flight was so uncomfortable and it felt long. BUT, from that point it only got better.. We flew with American Airlines from London to Los Angeles and maaan let me tell you, THEY SLAYED. Spacious, nice air, FOOD every other hour. We got a mini pizza and ice cream, like what? It felt like I was flying first class. They asked about the ice cream twice. For the first time in 2 years I actually ate the airplane food. We got some mashed potato with beef, bread, crackers, butter, the laughing cow, berry pie and just so much. We could also ask for drinks whenever, so yeah, I think AA are now on the top of my list. I've flown with Qatar airlines to Sri Lanka, which is one of the best airline companies in the world but, AA took the game to a whole other level.

I've flown probably over 30 times but I still don't feel 100% about it. I'm not scared of flying anymore, I just don't like the thought of not being in control of where I am. Being up in the air for 11 hours won't help it haha however, I might have had the best flying experience ever with AA.

Breakfast, lots of breakfast. I went hardcore on eating breakfast at some of our cafés my last week at home, cause that is one of the things that I miss about Sweden. Our simple but amazing breakfast. I usually miss Swedish dairy product. America should step up their breakfast game lol. Anyways, I went out eating with two of my main chicks, Dianna and Gaby. It was so good to see them again, even if we talk often, it's so hard us to find a day we're all available to hang out. Because of that, we decided to meet up in the morning at like 7 am haha. Adulting is so hard sometimes, but kind of fun.
