Already the end of the summer.

I'd like to point out to everyone that the title of this blog is "Sporadic Thoughts from Tyler" I'd like to put an emphasis on the word, "sporadic."

So what's the latest in my life? I moved this past week into my new apartment in University Villa. I am in apartment 37, Stephen was in 38 last year. I am living with Bryan still and living next door to me are Trevor Guthrie and John Baird. We haven't met more than 20 or 30 people in the ward yet, so it is hard to give any true opinion of the ward, but from what I can tell, it is going to be a fun ward.

When we moved in this last week, there were a few things missing... hand soap, shower curtain, etc. Small things like that. Bryan's take on it? He doesn't mind showering without a curtain. Not if it is going to cost him $7 for a curtain. Sometimes his frugality impresses even me. For anyone who is looking for the rest of the story--I bought the shower curtain.

I start school next week. I don't really have any feelings towards it, it is just something that is going to happen, neither exciting nor depressing.

As I was writing this post I actually got an e-mail from an old mission companion. He is brazilian and is in SLC for a week. I'm going to drive up and visit him for the day tomorrow I think. That'll be awesome!

I also spoke with another Brazilian elder from my mission on facebook today, and he asked if I was married. I told him I wasn't, that I didn't have a girl yet, and that needed to come first. His response to that was:
"hey man many girls there
Just them
go and ask them for date"

I realized that for members down in Brazil, they probably don't see any reason why it can't just be like that. I realized there was no side stepping that logic, so I just admitted that I should date more. I definitely hang out enough with girls, but I am going to try and go on official dates a little more. I'm sure the girls would appreciate it too.

Well, that's about it for now. If anyone wants me to blog about things that I'm not blogging about, let me know, and I'll try to include it in my next post.
