Today has been...intense. But that's okay. Basically, I'll explain what happened when I know the outcome. Let's just say, I was big time disappointed and hurt over something that will all make sense later on. Luckily, after I cried for a minute, I remembered a quote I found last night from President Monson's talk, Looking Back and Moving Forward:

"Mortality is a period of testing, a time to prove ourselves worthy to return to the presence of our Heavenly Father. In order to be tested, we must sometimes face challenges and difficulties. At times there appears to be no light at the tunnel’s end—no dawn to break the night’s darkness. We feel surrounded by the pain of broken hearts, the disappointment of shattered dreams, and the despair of vanished hopes. We join in uttering the biblical plea “Is there no balm in Gilead?” 6 We are inclined to view our own personal misfortunes through the distorted prism of pessimism. We feel abandoned, heartbroken, alone. If you find yourself in such a situation, I plead with you to turn to our Heavenly Father in faith. He will lift you and guide you. He will not always take your afflictions from you, but He will comfort and lead you with love through whatever storm you face."

These past few weeks I've felt so lost and I forgot about the light at the end of the tunnel. But, through some recent events and conversations, I was re-reminded that I'm not alone. Not only do I have friends and family who love me so much and want me to succeed and be happy, I have a loving Father in Heaven who can see the whole picture. He knows that if I do the right things, in the end I'll be happier than I could ever imagine! I just have to be patient, and soon enough, this rough and confusing patch will be gone!

Oh and good news: Spring Break starts in 12 days!!!!!!!!
