The antics of my life continue……… I have to do a dynamic range camera test and ISO test but I am lacking the motivation on the account that is absolutely mundane! But there it is. So Monday has come around again. An the Craziness of this week must be evaluated.
The week started with a message from facebook. Someone very special from my mission got baptized. I wept like a child! I remember the first time we visited him he wouldn’t talk to us he hid from us but I remember the first time I saw him I knew his face. I could of sworn I had seen him. We still would go back his wife joined years before and his son was the first to join as a child at 12. His son is now 18 and about to serve a mission so that gives you and idea of time and how long missionaries have been trying to talk to this man. I remember praying like crazy to know what to do and we had the idea to go an get a watermelon and give it to the family. Then we went back an my companion and I had the idea not to teach him but just go and visit. NOT at all orthodox. The third time he asked us to eat with him and we did again I didn’t have the feeling to talk about our message. Love this man get to know this man. IT WAS AMAZING! as we spent that time with him he asked us to come back and teach him. I remember him thanking us and crying because he said that no other missionaries had really taken the time to know him. I will never forget that. He never went to church but I was transferred pretty quickly from every area but I will never forget his son’s testimony at church saying when he saw us teaching him and he never thought it would happen and he knew he would accept the gospel. HE DID!!!!! The family contacted me to say thank you and if it wasn’t for us he may never have had the chance to be taught. MAN HOW AMAZING! I love my mission I am seeing the fruits of it now which is even cooler! I was so blessed to serve in Olongapo.
Then last Monday I broke my skpe record 2 hours and 17 mins. I love skping the other hemisphere it’s seriously like time travel. How is that even possible? What did we even talk about!!!!!!!!!!!!! Crack up though I enjoyed that time spent which consisted of me asking question after question and his crack up responses. Let’s be honest here I was pretty much integrating him…….. My favorite part was when his Mum called.
“I’ll call you back in 5 mins.”
An hour goes by…opps that’s alittle longer than 5 minutes.
“hey mum call you back in 25 minutes….” His face was priceless I found it crack up so I had to laugh. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA… dang it I need to control my laughter…
“Who’s Laughing……….. Is there a girl in your room! There better not be a girl in your room.”
Dang it! I got him in trouble….. I would like to say this isn’t the first time but lets be honest I have gotten him in trouble before. Poor Sister Querido and the water fight and welp enough said. Basta I have gotten him in trouble a few time and he is a champ always takes it on the chin! Poor kid now his parents think he is probably breaking the law of Chastity hahah. Welp no need to worry Sister (insert his last name) I am from Australia and your son has no romantic feelings towards me in the slightest but he is rather amusing hence the laughter. Sorry po.
Which brings me to the next random event of my life……….. I GOT A JOB INTERVIEW!!!! which was awesome on the account of the fact this HIGHTLY AWESOME COMPANY CONTACTED me. SUPER RANDOM! So I have a friend that works there he talked to his boss and BAM they emailed me. I was like WHAT ONLY THE BEST/ MOST SUCCESSFUL COMPANY IN THE WHOLE WORLD! But hey long story short it was a group interview and chances were slim of getting the job in the first place. I will be honest I have never even really had much to do with their products. But I really enjoyed the 2 hour mysterious interview at a hotel. It was by far the coolest job interview ever!!!!!!Also there was a cool team member who’s name was Darrell who seriously reminded me of Carroll man. His boat shoes were the same and his name rhymes even more random. ALSO HE IS HALF FILIPINO!!!!!!!!! but doesn’t understand tagalog. FAKE FILIPINO BUT STILL COOL! Also some of the most bizarre response where made I will never forget some chick saying that her interesting fact about herself is she is racist against Asians!!!! WHICH IS NUTTS I AM OBSESSED ABOUT ASIANS I LOVE ASIANS!!! even stranger she is asian. welp she probs got the job. I then got a rejection email….. oh man! I was still smiling because that was the most craziest/coolest job interview ever.
So I have been going to the temple a lot. I went with my friend mel and the funniest/ random experience. I was waiting in the last part of initiatory please keep in mind the ordinance has not been completed in the middle of the prayer. This temple worker comes racing in looks super worried!
“SISTER MCNAUGHT!!!!!! YOU MUST HURRY AND GET DRESSED INTO YOUR DRESS BECAUSE YOUR HUSBANE IS WAITING FOR YOU!”
“WHAT!!!! HUSBANE!” hahahhahahahhahahah cracked up laughing…….shocked expression then I continue”Hey please introduce me to him! Because I don’t have a husband.”
That was a moment Mel and I will never forget.
Which brings me to Samoan man. So I end up going on another date with him. It was really intense but cool we ended up doing a sealing session and sealed his Grandparents together……. YEP SEALING SESSION! Date number 3. hahah Then he played piano for me and this has been a fantasy of mine since I was little it was rather AMAZING. One thing that now may be ticked off my bucket list.Considering this is the second time anyone has ever serenaded me and I must say the second time was a lot better compared to the crazy man in Calapucuan during a lesson 2. Then we had lunch and well it was strange but somehow my shoe decided to fall into the river!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SOUTHBANK for the record has no shoe stores so we walked around trying to find shoes but didn’t happen. NO SHOES…….. I can’t go on the bus with no shoes and I AM NOT WEARING aussie thongs from the gift shop for the Japanese’s and Korean tourist….. which are mostlikely the only customers. sooooo I have my temple slippers so I reluctantly put them on…….. END OF DATE!!!!……………well so I thought.
I go home and then decide to take Eden (my little ranger sister) out and screen print at Uni. I get a text from this guy.
“hey what are you up to.”
“at uni then taking my little sister to the movies.”
I THOUGHT THIS WAS JUST CONVERSATIONAL…… but no he turns up…… I was kind of shocked. He lives an hour away from southbank. So he buys us tickets and we see GARDIANS OF THE GALAXCY. ……. not my kind of movie….. I didn’t mind it but EDEN WAS DYING…. She layed down on the chairs to go to sleep! Oi EDEN. Be good!!! So she watched the movie. I found myself thinking man that actor looks like an elder I served with only with a beard……Random. The movie finished at 12 am ahhhhhh grabe naman. 2 dates in one day that is a first for me!
So I will end this week on ………
A result of procrastination I must read this book because it is Hilarious. I love the titanic quote.
“He’s gone. Poof. Vanished into thin air. Well, there’s no mixed message here. He’s made it clear that he’s so not into you that he couldn’t even bother to leave you a Post-it
“Alone also means available for someone outstanding.”
“But he was so great!’ Yes, and the people who got on the Titanic thought they were going on a vacation”
“big plans require big action”
“Wasting time with the wrong person is just time wasted.”
“It’s hard. We’re taught that in life, we should try to look on the bright side, to be optimistic. Not in this case. In this case, look on the dark side. Assume rejection first. Assume you’re the rule, not the exception. It’s intoxicatingly liberating.”
“You picked a lemon, throw it away lemonade is overrated.”
"Unless he’s all yours, he’s still hers."
“He’s just not that into you if he’s disappeared on you. Sometimes you have to get closure all by yourself.”
“There’s nothing worse than having no answer, in business, friendships, and especially romantic relationships. But the bad news is, no answer is your answer. He may not have written you a goodbye note, but his silence is a deafening ‘see you later.’”
He’s just not that into you by Greg Behrendt and Liz Tuccillo
One thing I have come to learn this past week is one IMAGINARY FRIENDS ON THE OTHERSIDE OF THE WORLD ARE NOT REAL! Nor are they healthy. Two I am going to see someone that is all of the above quotes in the next week and I am scared spitless because I must keep in mind all of the above. The big overriding fact he’s just not that into me…….which is completely normal/ fair enough. Three being single is better than being unhappy/ getting played like a deck of cards………Or worse pretending that something is going to happen when it isn’t. You can’t like someone you don’t, even if you try…… you can’t make yourself feel something you don’t. You can’t get someone to like you either. Hence love when it really is found is a fetching miracle! A thing I am yet to have found but I believe it exists. Stabenow, she’s found it and I wish I could go to her wedding!!!!!I’m in the wrong country!!!!!!!!!!!! I heard a horror story this last week about marriage, kids hating their mother and divorce and I am like wooooh I am freaked out man. I love seminary!!!!!Slowly getting better at it and the training meeting I learnt so much. Welp that it.
Love you all
