so its that time of life...when all my friends have grown a foot or two and are now venturing out into the next part of their lives...their missions. yup pretty much every single boy that i met this past year at byu is currently either preparing his papers, submitting his papers, receiving his call, going to the temple for the first time, in the mtc, or out on their mish. and basically i wont see any of them again for two years. which is really crazy to think about. but yeah anyways, so i thought that i would, each time one of my friends leaves for two years to serve the lord that im gonna blog about them on here. one to show all my friends and family all the cool guys i know, and two to brag about the sheer number of missionaries that i'll be writing for the next two years. hahaha anyways so the first new elder that i am going to blog about is my good friend Daniel Wood.
elder wood will be serving in the indianapolis, indiana mission for the next two years and left for the mtc this past wednesday. my apartment first met daniel on our very first sunday there in provo walking to church. and let me tell you it was awkward. our ra had come around and told everybody that the snow hall boys in our ward wanted to walk us up to church and to all meet in the lobby before leaving. almost immediately the whole situation brought back those horrible moments at efy that each girl experiences when they have to be escorted to all the different places and you know that no one is going to choose you and it just really awkward cuz everybody else knows it too. (unless of course you are drop dead gorgeous and you have all the guys barreling over each other trying to get to you) but yeah so we started walking up to church (without escorts, thank goodness, everybody just kinda walked in a blob) and daniel hears us talking about how we should of drove to church and he starts talking to us and sits with us in sacrament meeting and that is my first memory of daniel ted wood and how our glorious friendship began. (i later found out that he decided to talk to us because he realized that malaysia looked black and he just wanted a black friend hahaha)
so yeah daniel was pretty much the first friend we made as an apartment and was a great friend throughout the whole year. he was always over hanging out and was there for a lot of the fun time we had. our nerf gun war, turning his apartment's pee blue, blanket fort movie night, ice blocking ,walmart trips. haha oh, and i cant forget his song! at the beginning of the year we tried to pick out sings that fit everybody perfectly and his was break your heart by taio cruz cuz all he ever hung out with was girls. hahaha im super excited for him to be on his mission though and i know he's gonna be a great missionary. i also cant wait to write and tell him that i finally blogged about him since he's been asking me to do that forever. haha and um yeah...there was a lot more that i was going to say when i was thinking about post at like 3 in the morning last night but i kinda cant remember any of it...hahah hopefully these will all get better as more of my friends leave on their missions =] peace and blessings, peace and blessings.
