A Night With Therm

I'm almost 100% positive I just melted the hearts of every female that just read the title of this post. I have been hearing rumors that people are having a hard time pronouncing my name... it's just like it is spelled, Therm (Thurmm) You can remember it easily because I am hot like a thermometer, or you better not be wearing thermal underwear on a honeymoon with Therm... sorry, that last example got a little steamy.

Back to the post.

I went on my first date since I have been back. School started and so did Tute. (that's institute for those less righteous) I am taking marriage prep on Monday and Wednesday, because I have priorities and goals. After class I "ran into" the brown eyed pearl of great price I had my eye on in class. I don't know if it was really a date or not. We never left the institute building, but we did talk to each other for a good 25 minutes eating free doughnuts. Does that count as a date? She gave me her number and I wrote it in my daily planner! She will be counted as a potential investigator.

A quick THANK YOU to Cannwin, turns out Provo is seeing somebody who is indecisively in love with her, and she is certain he is worth it. She will be counted as a former investigator and I will be staying in Mesa.

Day 3: Magic Potions

So apparently when I left to the A.C.M for 2 years (honorably released) the economy went down the toilet. I really wish I could be knocking doors right now bringing people the Good News. I had figured that finding a job would be one of the first things I'd be blessed with upon my return (honorably released). I went to the University of Phoenix to apply, I'm told they love us RMs, but they have changed the requirements for hiring. That really bummed me out, but "it's always darkest before the dawn." -President Ross. And it is dawn!

A friend called me and said "Hey Therm, you want to make money?" I responded with haste saying,"oh snap! You know I do." A few hours later I found myself in a meeting that I am sure will be the beginning of my new posh life.

Did you know liquid nutritionals is the new craze? Why swallow pills? Spiritually guided indians found a godsent berry that cures cancer, juiced it, put a famous Doctor's endorsement on the bottle, and have left it up to me, or us we'll get to that later, to make as much money as I(we) want off of it.

It really is pretty simple:

-I take you to a meeting.
-You try the juice.
-You think about it. If the toilet is the thinking spot for you, you'll have plenty of time after trying the juice to think.
-You get other people to try the juice.
-You get a BMW. Oh... and health like you've never known it.

Let me know if you are interested.

Day 1: Girls, Coldplay, and Revelation.

Welcome to my blog. If this post is short... I am sorry. I can't go into my study time, which I have dedicated to be at 8:00 pm every day, or else I will be breaking a commitment I have made to myself, and that is the "prelude to inactivity" as President Ross said. Inactivity is my greatest fear.

I have titled my blog "The After Life." Meaning life after the mission! I know it is pretty sachilarious... but I thought you'd be entertained. I have been home from The A.C.M (Arcadia California Mission) for almost 24 hours now. Last night I decided to go ahead and dive head first back into life as I knew it before I left... so I drove over to my friend Ashley's house to say hello. On the way I tried listening to one of my old faves Coldplay. I grieved inside because I didn't realize how irreverent that band was until that moment.

Seeing Ashley was fun. It was mostly a good experience because it provided me with my first post mission revelation. Ashley had tricked me into staying up and watching "Despicable Me." (It's on my movie list) Right around 10:00 pm I was feeling super guilty for being alone with a girl that late at night. And it came!! My revelation! If I set aside the late portion of my evenings to do my personal study, I wouldn't find myself in that position again! Luckily I had turned Coldplay off on the way to Ashley's or else I may not have been in tune, and I would have  missed that little tender mercy. Life is so good, and I feel so blessed. I am excited to find my wife! I will post again soon brothers and sisters.
