If you read Lavender's last journal, you'll see that she left me to maintain her DA for her during her mission in Chile.
So, this is what I do (errr... rundown of every day life here in the MTC). I get up at 6:30, have personal study at 7:00 (usually reading scriptures and studying things from how to teach people the gospel). Breakfast at 8:10-8:45, then study/speak in Spanish and do other class work. We have gym time, and more class, then lunch. We are often given an investigator. Usually the investigator (someone who is interested in the church and/or wants to hear our message) is a member, not a member, or a less active, or our teachers asking us questions about our lesson or the church. We (my companion and I) have to teach it all in Spanish. It's sooo hard!
I miss you all (gives them and you my love)
Oh wow! Random change of subject. During gym we play 4Square here a lot, and guess who is the 4Square champion? Guess who says king the longest out of the girls? That's right... me! I am the king! ((//shot)) Haha, it's fun to play and it can be a competitive game. Hope I don't break any noses. //shot again
My companions name is Hermana Skabeland. She is way awesome! She has short brown hair and is kinda sporty like me (LOL). We get along great. OTL I am only allowed to write family and friends once a week.
Oh! I found out you can use DearElder.com You can write an email and it will be sent to me on the same day! () They do read it first, so if it has some bad words (swearwords), crude jokes, or anything bad in it I won't get it. But, I do get it in the same day you send it, I can only respond in letters on Wednesday (and no email OTL). It's free too, so you can use it if you want. : ) Mae and others can use it too! (*Jumps up and down*)
Overall my experiences here have been amazing!
Oh gosh such a long letter. I hope it makes sense. My bird misses Tristan a lot... he even misses the stubborn cat Alley! (*laughs*) Haha, well, I better go write his letter to Tristan. ^_^ Silly traveling bird. (*Pinches his pink cheeks and fixes his messy long hair). Haha.
Speaking of birds... there are so many cute robins, sparrows, even crows and ravens (Yes, I love crows and ravens even if they aren't cute to others) here! They aren't afraid of people, so they hop around on the ground and sing all the time! I just want to pick them up and huggle them! (*grabs my bird instead since he can't get away from me. >: D Hehehe) Even as I write the birds hop around the bench and in the flowers and bushes (*writing outside in a park-like area). Well, off to write some more. Bye sis! (*dummy glomps & vanishes*)
((~Misachi-Chan: And the rest is what she's written for and by her character Partuce Windsor. :,D
Setting/Background of Letter + Partuce:
He woke up early in the morning to set out from Tristan's house. Traveling by day and sleeping by night. He passed Opalstone Town (lol pokemon again!) and continued to walk along. Following the road, well, backroads around countrysides. He stopped at small towns to eat food, and stayed in hotels at night, unless he felt like sleeping in trees. He had plenty of money from work. He liked to wave and smile at people. Sometimes they would give him strange looks, or just wave back without caring. Echo would sometimes stay in his pack, or walk alongside Partuce like a strange cat or something. He liked the small-town folk, they are much friendlier. Sometimes he would stop and help or offer to help random people with tasks like lifting or moving things. He never used his magic and always wore long sleeves and a pair of gray gloves to cover his hands. The small towns had libraries and he would sometimes go in to read some things. Magic books didn't have a lot in them, so he didn't stay long. He had a long conversation with a shopkeeper asking for some directions but he soon had to run out because Echo bit the shopkeeper's leg (OTL). Every shop they go in, he is careful not to pick up or touch things that look neat and shiny... just in case. Overall he walked a lot instead of taking a train or bus. He had lots to think about and the fresh air and grassy hillsides lifted his spirits. ((Ok... er... think of Howl's Moving Castle like country. No large cities... yet. OTL I hope you can read my handwriting. Er... Par's //shot. If not... I shall do it in print next time. : ) ))
Hey, can you believe it's already been two weeks since I left? It feels like more. Echo and I have been fine. We have been doing a lot of walking mostly. Why? Well, the country is so wonderful. I love the clean skies and open grassy fields. It makes me feel free, I guess. The towns are nice, not too big or crowded. The people are friendly and cook great food! Have you ever had a chicken wrap? If not, go to Opal and get one, they are great! Well... I would be lying if I said I didn't feel... homesick. I really miss you... and Natalia. I even miss Alley. Haha, you keep that stubborn cat out of trouble, okay? Yeah, she is great. I hope she's still not mad at me... wait, is she mad at me? I don't know, I really try not to scare her or others when it comes to magic. In fact, I don't use it that often. I may draw attention or something, and I don't want that. I helped out a farmer yesterday with some of his horses. I think I am a little lost, but no worries, I got directions from a shopkeeper. He was nice. The libraries in the small towns don't have much information on magic, but it was nice to settle down and read for a bit. While I was eating in a small diner a man came over and started to talk with me. He asked if I was from some kind of theatre company or something from the city. I said no, but we talked and he gave me a map to the city he was talking about. He used to work in the theatre and said something about the shows there. I think they are looking for actors or something. I'm not interested in acting, but maybe I will go to the city. I usually don't go there because of the noise and crowded streets. But I'll just check it out. Echo may like it, he is getting bored of the country, I can tell. My birth place is very far, actually across a large sea. Deep water isn't my favorite thing to cross over. Well, I won't go in a boat for a while now, I am still a long ways away. Well, the sun has already gone down, Echo is asleep on the floor. This one room place is too small, but it has a bed so I am fine, it works for me. Take care Tristan, don't worry about me, I am doing just fine. Please tell me how things are going, I'd love to hear from you brother.
