Companion: Sister Carnahan
General feeling: Good, excited.
Troubles: Staying awake.
How long it feels I've been here: 2 weeks
Sister Carnahan is my companion. I have a hard time saying her name. But that's weird because of the SCA I should be able to get names that are a little bit different right? Oh well. I think I've got i down now.... maybe. We struggled a little bit in the beginning but I'm taking Mamma's advice, be blunt, upfront, and honest about your issues and you'll get it worked out. Now we just joke around and have fun and don't really care about the ish. She's a lot of fun. Maybe not the most reverent.... okay, so not reverent at all sometimes. But that's why we love her. We should always have people in our life that make us smile.
I am really happy to me at the MTC and NOT in the field right now. Oh heavens... Teaching these lessons to real investigators would be... Interesting. The lesson we taught today was MUCH better than yesterday though. We actually talked to Jamie and got to know her before we started the lesson. That helped TONS.
I'm getting the set hours of sleep a night but somehow it doesn't seem to be enough. So I just make sure that I sit in the back of classes and stand up when I need to. I hope it gets better when I get out into the field. But you know, this technique seems to be working just fine... for now.
I know this is only my second full day. But it feels like I've been here for two weeks. SUPER glad I unpacked when i came because otherwise it probably wouldn't feel like home (not that it does anyway) and it would add to my subconscious stress level.
Anyways, that's all folks. Until next week!
PS I met an Elder Martineau in the MTC and we're related... go figure! We swapped James Henry stories and found that his Great grandfather's name is Leland and mine is Stanley... It's awesome to see so many family names. (Both are sons of Joe Hills).
