So the first couple weeks of school are over now and things are pretty good. I am getting really settled into my new apt and ward and starting to really like it here. Now I just need to figure out my job. They have been cutting my hours lately and I need the money pretty bad so if anyone hears of jobs or knows of one already, let me know. Other than that I have just been going to school and playing the occasional video game.

So I have been in school and in my new apartment for 2 weeks now and there are some definite pros and cons. First I really like this new ward a ton more than my old ward. I went for an entire semester in my old ward and when the summer started people were still asking if I had just moved in, that is if they even talked to me at all. This new ward I already have made some new friends and there is even a cute girl that I am going to have to ask out sometime. Next I have a freaking hot tub! So people can come over and hang out in it anytime they want and just the other day I went in and worked out the soreness from my weekly basketball game that I missed for about a month so when I went again it about killed me. Funny part of that is that the already mentioned girl from the ward was also there with her roommate. Good times. The biggest downside is that I miss seeing Rob, Lilly, Maggie and Henry all the time. Maggie and Henry are the funnest little kids to play with and I loved walking in and having Maggie run up and start asking me what I was doing with Henry close in tow. I also miss talking with Rob and Lilly about how life is going so I will have to find my way over there from time to time. Oh also my Mom and Dad want to find a house here in Utah so everyone should keep their eyes open for good ones that they could look at. Another thing to keep your eyes open for... a new job my is cutting my hours lately and it is not cool at all. So hopefully I can figure that out and work somewhere awesome.

So I am mostly moved in for the third time in about a year, fourth if you count moving into my mom and dad's house after my mission. Moving is not all that fun but it does make me look at all the crap that I have accumulated over time, lots of which can go. First random thing that I have rediscovered, a plastic football signed by the Snowflake High Lobos. I now need to find a place of honor for it in my room. Second thing I found was my yearbooks, so I decided to read some of the old comments left nearly five years ago. I think I must have totally spaced when reading through them before because in the front cover of my senior yearbook is written, "Dear David, you are the sunshine of my life. I have watched you for years and longed to have you in my arms. I love you David McDowell. Look me up after your mission- kekscn." I mean how could I have not read that before and had it sink in? The only problem- the name is not ledgible. So now I am left to wonder about this mystery entry and ponder who it could have been. I think I should make a reward for anyone who can decifer the name or tell me who would write such a thing in my yearbook. Ah the good ole times. Well I still have 5 or 6 boxes of stuff to unpack but welcome to my new blog and reading my happenings.
