Update from Spring Break Land

So I'm writing this in a 110 minute line at Harry Potter world. Worth it? I think yes.

I'm on a seriously wonderful spring break trip to Orlando with two of my favorite Swat friends. Probably the most wonderful part is that I'm wearing shorts and a tshirt and my Chacos. Warm weather is my favorite. And we've been up to fun things. We did sea world on Saturday (Shamu is actually pretty cool, who knew?), and Disney World/Magic Kingdom yesterday (which brought back my childhood but also made my feminist senses tingle in rage) and today is Harry Potter world, which is shaping up to be awesome and totally worth the line. Also, sleeping in a hotel bed is incredible because I'm pretty sure the mattresses at Swat they bought second-hand from the prisons.

I celebrated the existence of break by reading the Hunger Games trilogy in 2.5 days. It was not well written, but I'm okay with that, because it was lovely to get sucked into a story for a while. I rarely read books for plot these days, and sometimes - like after a busy week at school - it's the best. Also, I can't get over how well cast JLaw was in that movie. And I'm not just saying that because she's probably the second-most incredible woman alive (Hillary is obviously number one).

Oh! Also in the news is that my mission call has been assigned! We went on "it's a small world" yesterday and I literally almost threw up I got so excited/nervous. Every time a new (fairly offensive) representation of a country came on I was like "I could go there! Or I could go there! Or I could go there!" I'll get to actually open my call a week from today. Good thing I have theme parks to keep me entertained until then.

Sorry, I know I promised not to turn this into a missionary blog, but that's pretty much the only thing on my mind.

Anyway, I'm about to go into Hogwarts, so I guess I'd better sign off. I'll let you know how the butter beer is.
