Dear Journal,

I got a package today from Mom.

Guess what was inside? A new
Digital Camera! Mom is the BEST!

She sent a note with it and some
Candy, Jerkey, Twizzlers, and
a bunch of other treats. The Note
said that she wouldn't be able to
keep up with all the film that I
would be sending home so she
sent me this new 12 megapixel
Fuji with a 30 gig memory card!

She is the best!

I wonder how quick I can fill that card up?

Dear Journal,

I have got to be the best photographer
that has ever set foot in the MTC.!

I have already gone through 6 rolls of
Film for my 35 mm Camera. Me and my
district are always finding stuff to take
pictures of, from the front gates to the
new batch of greenies, to the wacky
things that we do in our dorms!

Yesterday I took a picture of Elder
Dialtone picking his nose, It was

I sent them all home for my Mom
to develop, since it was her idea
to bring this dinosaur (You know,
the FILM camera)with me. She
said that it was my Dad's and that
it takes much better pictures then
a Digital Camera.

I just know she'll love all of those

Always buy Cotton-Poly!

Dear Journal,

Well today I got to see what the MTC doctors office looks like up close.

No, I didn't get hurt, but my Companion Elder Dialtone did. I think he was getting a busy signal there for a while!

I learned a couple of important lessons today.

NEVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, Buy the silky slick G's and NEVER run into the room and jump into your turned down bed that is up against a brick wall, wearing only your Silky slick G's at full speed.

I do have to admit, Dialtone looks pretty funny with that giant goose egg in the middle of his forehead, he's like a freakin 2 legged Unicorn!!!!

Anyway we both got a good laugh out of it and after his head ache goes away it will probably seem even funnier!

First Day at the MTC

Dear Journal,

Today I start the best 2 years of my life! I am so excited I can't even stand it!

OK, that's a lie, man I am such an idiot. Here I am starting my first day in the mission field and I am telling lies.

I hope that no one else reads this but....I am scared out of my mind. How the HECK am it going to get through the next 23 months 29 days and 3 hours.

It was really weird to get dropped off here at the good old MTC (Missionary Training Center) just incase you forgot.

They took us into this MASSIVE room, there must have been a thousand Missionaries there. I saw some freakin Hot Sisters there too.

Crap! there I go again, I am going to be up all night repenting for all this stuff..... Still there was this blonde, and I totally would have asked her out.

They showed us this video and I knew what was coming next... the old water show.

I knew that my Mom and Sister would totally loose it, so I pulled the Hug n Run move to avoid getting sucked into their tractor beam of tears! It worked, but I kind of felt bad after, though when I got through the door and stood in line with the other elders and sisters I was really glad I wasn't boo-hooing all over the place like some of them.

Anyway they gave me a companion..... Elder Dialtone, He seems OK. I guess we'll see more tomorrow.
