So a lot has happened this week.
First, let me just say that I've started school and I am loving SUU. I love living on my own, except for the fact that I have no money. I have really cool roommates, we're still a little standoffish, but not as much. I'm sure we'll get to know each other really well. I really love the SUU campus. I was walking around the east end (near where the Shakespearean festival does their green show) and it is so beautiful. I feel like I'm walking through the woods there are so many trees and it is so green and peaceful.
Second, I did finally get some semblance of a job. I am now working on campus in the English Department. I only work 5 hours a week, but it is a start. Pretty much I just lock up all of the classrooms and faculty offices, make copies, and do whatever the secretary asks me to do. I am working at Tuacahn on Saturdays still at least until the end of October or until I find something else in Cedar City. If anyone has any odd jobs that need to be done, and are willing to pay give me a call. I'm almost willing to do anything at this point.
Thirdly, I've become very active in my new college ward. I've gone to the firesides, ward prayer, family home evening, and I'm getting to know people in my ward. I'm trying to be more outgoing and talk to people...and guys, and am getting to know some really great people.
Funny story...so at FHE (family home evening) on Monday I tried to get to know a lot of people in my ward. I met and talked to the Relief Society President (who was just called on Sunday) and the next day (Tuesday) I got a call from the bishopric asking if I would come in and talk to them. (They had to call my roommate because they didn't know my last name or my phone number, but they knew that I was Jessica from Apt 11, so my roommate comes to me and says the bishopric wants to talk to you). So I quickly change and drive to the church and go in to talk to the bishopric. Now as soon as I got off the phone with them I knew that I was going to be getting a calling. Well as I got to the church I went to the clerk's office and I saw the relief society president in there talking to the bishopric. When I saw her I was thinking, "hmmm, this can't be good." So the 2nd counsilor of the bishopric took me aside and started asking me how school was going and where I was from and all that fun stuff, when he says: "We were wondering if you would be willing to be the second counsilor in relief society?" My first response was a mix between a laugh and a pfft. I wanted to laugh, in fact I did laugh as I walked to my car. Of course I agreed. The really funny fact of the matter is that my friend Kim, (who I hang out with a lot) was also called to be the second counsilor in relief society in her college ward only a week earlier. So I called her as soon as I was in my car and we laughed about it for a good ten minutes. Needless to say I am now in the relief society presidency in my ward, and I'll admit that I'm a bit nervous. So if anyone has any advice for me feel free to share it with me. Also, I guess that I am over Enrichment Night so if anyone has any good ideas for activities feel free to share!
