Recently, I had the opportunity to go renew my driver’s license at our local DMV as my old license would expire shortly before I returned to the states from my LDS mission. The short version of what happened is basically that I couldn’t get a space in my last name even though all of my legal documents spell my name correctly. The system simply refused to allow a space. Let me tell you about our adventure.

Yes, I am recovering from a cold. I really quite despise them.
On Saturday, my sister and I went and planted the seeds necessary for our family garden which we have in our awesome backyard. After cleaning up the yard, we proceeded to mix up the soil, re-grid the boxes, and proceed to plant the seeds. It was quite the adventure of planting and watering.
So, it has been a few weeks now since the end of the semester, and I can proudly say that I am doing well and being rather productive. I’ve got my job back at Burbidge & White as a runner. It is loads of fun, and is a very good job to have for the summer before I head out on my mission. It is a great thing to have a job for the summer so that I don’t just waste my time away doing nothing.
Well, I did it. I made it through my hardest semester of school yet. It was a pretty challenging time for me, but I was able to power through the last few weeks of school. As I predicted, exams were very hard and took a lot of time. For my physics 123 exam, I was in the testing center for 3 hours and 15 minutes working as hard and as fast as I could. It was a very challenging test, but I feel that I did pretty well given the amount of time it took me to take the test. The other tests weren’t quite as challenging, but they posed a challenge as well. College work sucks…
So today I had to make up a physics lab due to my foot acting all strange like last week. This lab is probably one of the funnest that we’ve done all semester. We had 2 speakers: a tweeter and a woofer. The tweeter is a small speaker built for a higher frequency range and can handle that range very well with little interference and damaging. The woofer is pretty much like a sub woofer, but built for higher frequencies that we can actually hear and not feel.
That’s right, classes are officially over. The 2nd hardest phase of the week is over. I have completed all of the assignments that are due and I am ready to start studying for these finals. It is going to be a whole ton of work, but I feel like I can do this. It is just one last push before I am allowed to have a little over a 2 year break. I’m super stoked for these exams, even though they might end up killing me. In other news, I love the cloudy weather.
In case you didn’t know, Finals are approaching. That’s right, the worst part of the semester is just right around the corner. I am up to my neck in craziness with my studies and assignments, and I feel like I’m about to burst. The last 2 weeks of the semester are never fun times and it is about to get crazier.

Yes, it is officially spring. Isn’t that lovely? The coldness is finally going away, and is scheduled to not return in full force for a couple seasons. It is truly a lovely thing to be out of winter and be able to enjoy the amazing warmth and feel-goods that come with spring.
