Snug as a bug (let's hope not)
June 18th, 2012
President and Sister Hall came last week to give the ward a fireside about covenants because a lot of people are taking a temple trip today. It was great as they also came by with some letters. I received 5 letters, all from "mission ties". So, I received the ones that are everything we have talked about, and I also received the recipes. So far this month I have received the two big envelopes and those next 5 letters. That's all, but I hope that July I will receive the rest, I never thought that getting mail and packages would lift my spirits so much, so if anyone else wants to write to me here is my addresss again: (Adam only gets mail once a month and it takes roughly 3-4 weeks to get from the States to him also)

I'm looking forward to hearing from everyone back home!!
Oh, before President and Sister Hall came, my bed broke and my pillow was flat. My bed broke because the side metal bars were cheap and they bent in half, so if you can imagine it my bed was kind of like a hammock, and since my pillow was flat my neck started to hurt. This went on for about 3 days...no good pillow and no actual bed frame!! But when the President came they both told us to throw away anything old that no one was using. So we did!! We cleaned house! Sister Hall bought me a new bed and a new table for studying and a new fan!! She is so awesome! It's not really a bed frame, its just the box underneath the mattress, but right now I have the nicest things for sleeping. Oh,
and on top of that I bought a nasa foam pillow, that too is awesome and I love sleeping with it!!!
So I sent two letters last week, but they shouldn't get to you for like another 2-3 weeks, because the lady at the post office was dumb and I asked one of them to be express and she did both of them as simple. Simple takes about a month. Anyway, one of them is a post card and the other is for Sean. I think Sean will like it. This week or next I am going to send another letter. This next letter will have my SD card and a picture and a video of me. I hope you will really enjoy my next letter and I think I will try to really make sure that the person at the post office puts it as express!
This past week.....I had - hey sorry about earlier. The guy who owns the LAN house turned off the internet so he could go to lunch. Really stupid I know but here I am again trying to write. Some things I forgot to say in the other first email....I heard a band called "lower lights". I like them a lot, especially because they sing songs that I know and they are appropriate songs. So if anyone else knows of them can you get some of their songs on a flashdrive for me?? Oh well thats about it I think for this week due to the interruption of my internet emailing. I will probably remember more to say after I am done writing......oh wait....can you ask Nic if he knows what "house sharing" is on itunes. If it means that I could get my appropriate music from home using this sharing folders then I would like him to go on to my itunes and turn on the home sharing thing. I think he will understand. If not, then maybe someone else can help him.
Anyways, I love you again and I still can't wait until July 1st so I can receive more letters lol.
