Hello all! Once again I apologize for my long absence. I am back at BYU! Woo hoo! I am living in my old apartment, and it is very nice to be back. My computer is dying, and I only have time for a short update. I am taking classes this term, and things in general are going well. Naturally there have been some bumps, but that is to be expected. I have been thinking a lot lately about change. I was thinking about how my life has developed over the last two years. Two years ago I never could have imagined that I would be where I am right now. If you had told me that I would get into the school of music, I would have hoped you were right, but at the same time I would have been afraid that it was all just a sick joke. Then if you had told me that not only would I get into my major, but I would have the chance to learn German, live in Vienna, and sing there for three months with some of the most talented people on the planet, I would have absolutely never have believed you. I have had so many beautiful experiences, but more importantly, I have been fortunate enough to make friends with the most wonderful people imaginable. I am grateful for all the people in my life, and for the growth and support that I feel. My path has taken many unexpectedly fantastic turns, and I know that there are many more on the horizon!
