August 8, 2010

Hey All,
This week was maybe the fastest yet. Fast enough that I really don't remember it that well. It is very hazy in my mind.
Oh yeah, sorry for this email being so late. We had a little bit of a different schedule today. I was with the Zone Leader running some errands and stuff. SO here is the email finally.
One of the errands was one I am very excited for. President Nelson approved it for us to go to a Mets game on Thursday. I am super excited. I was sad that I didn't get the chance, but in my last week, the chance came up. I am super excited. So today we went and bought our tickets. We are in the mega nose bleeds, keep the tickets cheap. Haha. But it will be a really good time.
Also this next week I have my departing temple trip coming up, on Wednesday, which I am really looking forward to. I have not been to the temple for over a year, and I really miss it. So that will be really good.
The feeling of leaving are still very weird. But they are not really noticable, as everything is still a surreal dream, so it makes the feelings not happen. I am sure I will have an onset of emotions when it becomes real. It will be hard to leave everyone here, but it is reassuring that I will be back a lot to visit. As long as money permits. Haha.
Diamond Bar is really close to Los Angeles. It should be really fun. We have already made some big plans. I am really looking forward to it. Elder Furlong and Nagaishi are great.
For the record, I do have my nametag on in my picture that is on the announcement thing, you just can't see it. It is attatched to my sweater, on my left hand side. Just so you know. And it does look super New York in the picture. It is actually one of my favorite. I think it turned out well.

I recieved your package. Thank you. It was great. It will be a nice little snack for the last week, though I better be watching what I eat for this last week, so I can make sure I go home looking good. Haha.
So one other interesting thing that happened this week is that I had my departing interview with President on Friday. You know like in the movie the RM where your mission president tells you to get a job, get and education, and get married, not necisaraily in that order. Haha. It was really nice though. He expresssed his appreciation for me and told me good job. I also asked him about getting a letter or recomendation for jobs, perhaps for the translator job at McKay Dee. He said he would be more than willing. He might be an alright recomender for McKay Dee, as he was its CEO a year ago. Haha. So it went really well.
Well, I don't have much time, but I love you all very much, and I will talk to you all next week.
