Now Hiring: Life Planner

It's high time for an update! So, my mental health has drastically improved since we last left off. Days of rest and then another AMAZING (albeit last minute) week of EFY fixed me right up. Now I'm finishing my last week of work before I'm off to Lake Powell with my favorite group of people...the J-ru Crew! Earlier this week at work I got to sit in on interviews and be a part of the "hiring committee." I'm not gonna lie, it was pretty fun grilling people and asking them questions that obviously made them feel vastly unprepared. I like seeing what people do when the unexpected gets thrown at them. Anywho, that was fun and I'm glad I've worked my way up the hierarchy of Special Collections to enjoy such a task. Among other things, I'm currently homeless and bouncing back and forth between Salt Lake and Provo. Starting to hate that little 45 minute drive too. It's all good though. Now for the real juice....

Current life decisions I am having trouble making: (if you have an opinion, feel free to comment)
Should I finish my application to the English education program?
Should I finish my degree in English and work on a minor in editing?
Should I defer a semester and go teach English in China?
Should I apply to a study abroad program in England next summer?
Should I put in mission papers for next summer?
Should I let a certain person know I like them?
Should I quit my job at the library and get a real one?
Should I quit my life and become a vagabond who lives in box?
Should I return that purple shirt I bought last week?

Ok so the last two weren't really legit, but the rest were! Sometimes I think it would just be nice to have someone make all your life decisions for you. Shouldn't you be able to hire people for that kind of thing? Perfect. I am now accepting applications for anyone who would like to be my life planner. The pay isn't great, in fact maybe we can work something out where I bake cupcakes. Ha!

Ooh, ooh, I love these decisions. Life is so exciting.

No. Unless it's a master's program. Then yes.
Yes. And say hi to Jennie and Doris from me.
Yes, after England.
Wait a bit longer and read Alma 32 with relationships in mind.
Yes, so you can better pay for all your adventures.
