Last P-Day of the MTC

Hmm where to start.... That is always my huge dilemma each week is that I just do not know what to write you about. As always, things are going really well for me, and am enjoying life. I guess its really hard for me to get down, but when I get down I go down hard:D so I will try to not let that happen. The language is always coming a little more for me each day, even though it never seems to feel like I am growing at all. I just have to trust my teachers and my district members I suppose.
 
Well, here are a list of cool things that have happened this last week:
 
1) I got my FLIGHT PLANS!!!!!!! Awww man, it scared me to death haha. On friday, they sent all the flightplans to our mailbox, and our district leader picked them up, and took them to the class room to distribute them. After handing out all of them, I still didnt have mine. They didnt come with the rest of my districts plans. On the inside, I think I might have been dying a little every nano second, but on the outside all I was was smiles and "They'll come, no big deal." Haha oh it was miserable lol. And then I headed down to Travel Services to find out what was going wrong, and it turns out that the P-file didnt download, so mine and Sorella Pearson's, who is a Sorella from another District, didnt get sent out. Needless to say, eventually all things worked out well and I have them in my hands now. I leave:
 
         Tuesday, July 27th, at 8:00 am. I have to wake up at 4:00 and be at the Travel Services by 5:00. I then fly from Salt Lake to Housten Texas, where I am laid over from 12:30 to about 4:10, so any phone calls I am going to make is going to be in that time. Then I fly to London, where I have another 4 hour layover, and from there I go to Rome, where I arrive about 4:00 in the afternoon on Wednesday the 28th.
 
2) In the gym there is a situp record of 1380 situps in a row, non stop, in fifty minutes. I broke that records, setting a record of 1401 situps in a row and it was one of the most intense physical things I have ever done in my life. Unfortunately, when I was at about 900, my legs started cramping up terribly, I had about 4 cramps in each calf and 2 in each quad. Because of that, I had to abbandon the good situp form I had to something that was pretty terrible because that was the only way I was able to keep going. I kept going though because I had made a goal that I would get 1400 situps or die. I kept going, and I was in terrible pain. Then, my world kinda shattered when I was at 1300 I learned that my record was not going to be valid since my situp form wasnt good anymore. I have hardly ever wanted to quit more in my life than when I learned that. It was going through my head that I should just quit since my effort wasnt worth anything anyways. I almost did. But then I thought, if there was one person that wanted me to quit when things didnt seem worth it, it was the Adversary, and that he wants me to learn to quit. It was then I decided that I would keep going if it was gonna kill me, even if it didnt count. And because of that, I now know that I can do that many, and I can say that the pain and struggle was extremely worth it.
 
3) My teacher, Sister Lewis, got married today. She is now Sorella Swensen.
 
4) My teacher, Fratello Auna, had his aunt make us candy lays since he is hawaian, and it was the coolest thing!
 
5) I had my last TRC visit yesterday. It was slighty depressing, but good at the same time.
