Back to America...

Hmmm....I will not lie. I did NOT want to come back. And, I will also say that I would go back traveling in the blink of an eye. After a month of traveling, planning things out the day before or even the hour before, I got so used to fact, I really, really liked it. I do not like that I have to come back to reality, but I still doooooo. I planned on moving back to California, but there was 1 job in Utah that I decided would make it worth it to stay. So, 5 days after I got back, I got the job (at United Way). Scary, since I thought I had a month before deciding anything! The Lord doesn't work on my timetable though. I get to work with volunteers and help make the volunteer programs of partner nonprofits more successful. I also get to work on tons of service projects and hopefully get lots and lots of people involved. I'm a bit nervous, but this is something that I love and have always thought to be so, it will be great. I'm still feeling a little bit returned missionary like. haha. I'm not sure if that makes sense, but I feel kind of awkward and uncomfortable with most people. It helped that 2 weeks after I got back, my family surprised me and came to Utah for their spring break. I got to play lots of basketball with my brothers, games with everyone, go running/gym with my gpa and brother, go to conference with my two youngest brothers (who have never been), eat lots of yummy food, visit other family, run around the neighborhood on easter with bunny masks on delivering treats to widows (it was as ridiculous as it sounds), and hug my brothers lots and lots. Now, my sister will be up here in a week!

My 16 yr old brother is 6' 2 1/2" as is not done growing. His arms are disgustingly long, BUT they work great when it is freeeeezing outside. I really love my brothers.

Conference center babyyyy. Some really nice family sat behind us and took the picture afterwards. They told me about 5 times how sweet and cute my brothers and I were with each other. HA! I sure tricked them.

Just the precious little family in blue. Just look closely at Baci's smile.

Megan LOVES to get these shots of me. She is tricky. But, I did spend lots of time holding that cutie's hand. Better than any other boy.

He is a giant. and I am asian.

Congratulations on the job! So are you in Salt Lake then? More reason for me to come visit. I heard "Party in the USA" yesterday and totally thought of you. Miss you terribly!
