On New Life in Utah and Grad Schoo'

Well, as you readers may have noticed, I haven't had a whole lot of time to devote to my blog. In fact, I should be doing some reading for tomorrow's class but I am kinda sick of looking through theory and research books, and decided to take a little break to report a little about what has been going on with me.

I left Recife on August 15 and spent a whole week in Florida visiting my aunt. I had a blast! She is super fun to be with and I also got to go to the beach a couple of times and work on my tan :) In Brazil it was hard, because it rained a lot during the time I was there. So Florida helped me :)

I arrived in Utah a week later and stayed for almost two weeks at my friend Camila's house. I was in the process of finding a place to live and was still debating whether I should move to Provo or if I should stay in Draper. It looks like the Lord wanted me in Provo and I found a great deal at a cute house! It's just me and two other roommates and they are super laid back and cool. Also, the house is VERY CUTE and newly remodeled, which gives me motivation to stay organized and also to cook rather than going out to eat every single time. It will also save me some gas and it's been nice to be in a calmer place.

I started Grad School as well and this is my third week. There is a lot of reading involved and I am still trying to catch up with so much information at once, but I am excited and happy. We have an excellent group (only 10 people) and everybody seems to get along pretty well. There are also a lot of new things that I am learning. The Grad School language/jargon/whatever you wanna call it, is completely different from the Undergrad. So, yes, I am having a hard time adapting.

In the meantime I just want to express my gratitude for all the blessings that I have received. I love this life and also my Savior, for providing me with such blessings.

I'll be posting more soon!
