I wasn't ever home sick at all, but I was a little sad waking up that morning and realizing it was a little different, but it wasn't necessarily a bad thing at all. What kind of phone did Sawyer get? How is everyone? I'm doing really well here.
Today we had a HUGE nerf war again, and we actually waited till everyone was out of the building, and we played this awesome nerf game where two people escorted "hostages" and there were kamikazies and assassins with the nerf guns and things, and it was such a blast. We played for literally about an hour and a half, and we didn't even realize it.
The temple is closed so we have a big chunk of time to fill, and it was hilarious. I've also got some other funny things that happened this week. I got really good at "fake throwing up" on people, and I have been putting that skill to good use, and it's pretty funny to see the reactions.
I think instead of typing everything out, i'll just send you a copy of my Christmas schedule, since it'd take way too long to type. But I saw Ben on Wednesday, bad news is he's in a completely different building and things so I haven't seen him since, but I made sure to know what room he's in, so i'll go visit him sometime before I leave. We'll probably get our travel plans on Thursday, and i'm so excited. Tomorrow we've got a new district coming in, with 12 Elders, it's a big district. Me and Rogers always shine their shoes for them the first night and get to know them, so i'm looking forward to that tomorrow night, it should be a lot of fun. It's getting a lot better being a Zone Leader, it's not as stressfull anymore and we're having a lot of fun. I think people are getting really attached to us though, and it's going to be really hard to leave in 2 weeks.
I've been really trying to help people out, and it's working to help me be a better person, and it helps others gain more confidence. We took a lot of pictures the last few weeks, and i'll try to get those developed. I had printed about 50 last week but something with the machine went wrong and it didn't work, so now the next time I print them they're be like 100. I'm still trying to figure out the videos, because we have a ton of different ones eating the pies, and Harry Potter beans and stuff, and they're hilarious, so i'm thinking of just sending the whole card home instead, and having all of you just look at those, and just buy few more memory cards here. They have every size, and they're pretty inexpensive so i'm not worried about it. I'll let you know what i'm doing.
Ties- I'm good on ties right now too, I have been trading so i'm staying fresh on those. MP3- Just put like some Mo-Tab on there, and if you would, please put Franco Devita on there, and all the spanish songs dad showed me. I want so show the guys all the songs i've been singing. (Like Sera, Te Amo, Inconditional, Solo Importas Tu, and all those) I think it'll be hilarious to sing. Most of them know the whole thing of Te Amo, so I need to show them what they're missing haha. Oh also, will you make sure people know I leave January 9th, and if they have anymore letters or anything to send me, make sure they know it has to get here before then so I dont' have mail coming after I leave.
So if anyone asks, just have them give it pre-stamped and everything to you and you can do that.
Advice of the week: Be the Leader that people look up to you because they WANT to, not because they HAVE TO. I've actually been making a lot of cool quotes and i've received some cool inspiration on a lot of awesome phrases and things i've been writing them all down. I'll have to take a picture of them and send them to you.
I'm doing really well. I don't know if there is anything else to say as of yet. I'll send you my christmas day stuff and that'll be fun to hear about. And I'll probably write you some journal incerpts in there so you can hear some other funny things. Thanks for everything for Christmas, i'll explain that more in those letters, but they were all amazing and I loved it so much. I Love you all so much, and hope all is well, thanks again. Talk to you later.
