I don't think I've really talked about my roommates yet, so I thought I'd fill you in. My roommate Sarah and I have been friends for a little while now. We met at BYU, she was good friends with my cousin Brooke. She's from L.A. and is out here going to school to become an even planner. She's so cute, fun, and the tall, beautiful blonde type. Kate Fujikawa is my other roommate and she is actually from San Diego. We were in the same stake, but didn't really know each other. She's so funny and has the greatest laugh ever. She works in a law office here and is preparing to take the lsat herself. Katie McKinney is our other roommate and she is darling. She's from Alabama and recently moved here to work as an instructor at the Paul Mitchell Hair School. Some of our good guy friends recommended that we try to live together and I' m so glad they did. She's got that southern accent and hospitality that I love.
So basically I am really lucky to have such great roommates. I can tell fun times are coming! Here are some pictures of us (minus Katie) at Kate's B-day celebration at the Love Cafe.

Don't ever hesitate!

So the other day I was riding the metro and I was just minding my own business, when I kept getting this feeling to give the Book of Mormon I was reading to the guy sitting next to me. I took a few minutes to think about what I would say and to get my nerve up. Well as I was doing this the man next to me starts to get up. I panicked because I knew I needed to give him this book. So I said, "Have you read this book before?". He said no and I quickly asked him if he would like to. He said yes with a big smile as I handed him the book. He got off the train seconds later. Whew! I almost missed my chance because I hesitated. Since this experience I can't stop thinking about what things I've missed because I've hesitated. I certainly could have given him a better introduction to the Book of Mormon and even helped him feel the Spirit. I'm sure I've missed many other opportunities to share what I believe because I have hesitated. What friends or guys have I passed up? What new experiences or adventures did I hesitate on that could have been great? How much money have I lost on plane tickets because I was worried and so I procrastinated? (Thanksgiving)

It's something to think about: what have I missed because I've hesitated? Well I submit that we just don't hesitate. We should jump at opportunities to open our mouths, experience new adventures and learn new things. I'm in if you're in!
