Time On My Hands

Hey Everyone!!!

It has been a while since I last wrote, so I felt like it was time to let you all know what else is going on with me. I really have no idea why people read what I write, but I like to think I'm funny and brighten people's days somehow, so I will try to fulfill your reason for reading this blog post. First of all, I'm working two jobs right now. My first job is working in customer service for a place called Fin Fun Mermaid. They sell mermaid tails in which girls can actually swim.

And I want one.
This one specifically.

 I think it starts getting to your mind working there and seeing all the pictures. Look at the pictures long enough and talk up the product, you will start believing you need one as well before you know it. I know that most of you are thinking one of two things: "seriously, that exists?" or "what a great idea! I should get that for so-and-so." You could be thinking both for all I know, but either way, I love working for this company. They are super family oriented and shoot for quality, which is why they are growing as fast as they are. Well that, and it is a great idea.

Anyway, my second job is not as exciting, but I love it just as much! I work at the Distribution Center for Deseret Book. I get to be around products everyday that uplift and inspire people. What more could you want? Working two jobs sometimes makes me feel like this:

BUT, it has been a HUGE blessing. My time is jam packed and I get to pay off as much of my loans as I can before school starts in January. (If you didn't know but wanted to: I am an Economics major. Yes, I did change it once again!) :D

With all my time filled, I have found that I have been lacking in developing my relationship with my Heavenly Father. If I did have time, I didn't really want to spend it like I should either, so I found that I started to slowly regress. This is pretty much how I felt when I realized what was happening:

I've never been the kind of person who just accepts an error when it is something I can fix, so I pondered on how I could progress once again. What I came up with is updating my ipod. I uploaded General Conference and General Authority talks. My music is similar to what I listened to on the mission and I have focused my thoughts, every free moment I have, on the Savior and His Atonement. This has helped me resist temptation and focus on what really matters most. I am so blessed to live in this time period where good, uplifting technology is available to me. I know that I can change and be forgiven, and it fills me with joy that I can share that amazing fact. I love the gospel, the teachings of Christ, and His atoning sacrifice. Thank you for reading! I hope you thought it was worth reading this post. :)
