My goal to maintain a social life and get A's and have a job is all sort of happening, although right now I think I have more like A-'s and a social life on sunday and sometimes saturday.
This last monday, we did marshmallow freeze tag for fhe, which was outstanding. The next day I got an email from the housing manager person asking who was responsible for all the marshmallows she'd had to clean up. Apparently there is a $25/hour fee on cleaning up after people, so today on my bill there was a nice little invoice next to rent and utilities that read "Marshmallow clean up......$5.00" (it was split up between everyone involved) Still worth it. Plus utilities here are less than a quarter of what they were in my old place.
I'm at the year mark since being home from my mission (the exact date is a little hazy), and that's ridiculous. I was reading through some of the last journal entires I made from portugal, the mission life was so much more eventful and inspiring. My journal these days just can't really compete.
