Big, hairy, smelly, sasquatch! On May 6th I started summer semester at UVU (Utah Valley University)! I'm loving it! My professors are all amazing and understanding of my disabilities and kind of cater to me. I feel very much like Harry here. It makes me uncomfortable that so much of what we do is based around me.
But it's also a nice thing because...
I've had to literally scratch, fight, and claw my way back into things. After taking a year break from life, it was tough trying to get back into the swing of things. It took about a 3 days to adjust.
It's been interesting watching people walk down the hall, look at me, then adjust their course trying not to make it obvious. But it IS obvious. I hope I didn't do that to others who are disabled, before my accident. But there is good in everyone and I've learned to accept more help from others. It's been humbling.
I am taking photography from the most incredible, positive, and inspiring professor in existence. Then I have public speaking from a man who reminds me of my gpa Jack Walters. I follow that class with english. I've always hated english but when I went to this class, the professor has a different way of teaching. I like it and I now LOVE english. Amazing what a good teacher can do for you and your perspective on the course subject. I'm also taking 2 institute courses that are both amazing. First I have the 2nd half of D&C followed by Teachings of Pres. Monson. I love learning and pushing myself more than I normally would. On June 24th, the 2nd block of summer begins and I'll have Social Work and P.E.
I'm living with my brother Dustin in Orem so I am mucho close to campus. We have 3 roommates who are all RM's so that makes it fun! We love our ward so far! In fact, I just got a calling today! Ward prayer chair! I'm so excited about that! I haven't had a calling in over a year! Weird.
Well, I hope life is treating all of you well. I need to run again. Busy, busy, busy... and loving it.
