Due to many of my recent acquaintances and/or friends begging me to create a blog to describe my fabulous adventures overseas, I have finally surrendered in my efforts to remain blogless (okay, no one has really begged me to write one, but I think I am one of five people who doesn't have one here out of 79 kids). Not that I usually give in to peer pressure, but I was feeling left out as everyone went to blog while I would go check my e-mail, which only leaves me feeling empty and sorrowful inside when there is nothing new in my inbox.
So, here I sit on the top of Mt. Scopus in eastern Jerusalem, Israel, avoiding futile attempts to do homework. To sum up the past few weeks of my life in a nutshell: I upped and moved to the BYU Jerusalem Center from two weeks ago until April and I am loving every second of it! The city is beautiful, the people are great, the classes are hard, I'm running on little sleep and basically life couldn't be better. [Sidenote: I am also sporting my brand new camel leather "Jerusalem Cruisers" that were only a mere 50 Shekels so really, what could be better?] I hope to update you all, or at least my mom if she chooses to read this, about my journeys and findings here in the Holy Land!
