Konnichi wa The MTC is still hard work. Our district has developed a motto, "Work Hard, Play hard." For us this means we study when its time to study and are serious when its time to work, but when its gym time we play hard. This is to mine and everyone's benefit as we have been recognized as one of the hardest working districts. We are always learning more and more and the days start to blend together and I cant seem to separate them anymore. We get up at 6:30 and go to gym at 6:40 till 7:30. Gym is an enjoyable time then we head to breakfast, then to class until lunch, and then more class after lunch all the way until dinner. Its crazy how much we study and read. Because of all the sitting I have decided to start running at least a mile every day in gym if not more and its great I'm definitely not Carnea but I'm still fast.
The Care package was nice and the b-ball hoop is much appreciated. It hangs on my closet so when I'm lying in bed I can sill shoot hoops. Now all I need to do is train the ball to come back to me and things will be much easier. I have also learned that the MTC food is not what makes you fat, but the candy that all the parents send. My companion had two boxes of cookies and I told him we need to get rid of some, so I just started handing them out to everyone, with his permission of course, and I still couldn't get rid of even one box.
Besides my running in gym time our district has decided to pick up playing volleyball together at least twice a week. Its lots of fun and a couple of the shimai (sisters) played in high school. As of yesterday, all the missionaries that came in on the same day, are now considered senpai, or senior missionaries. This is great as we want to help the cohai, younger missionaries, do the best that they can. Well that's pretty much all that's going on here in the MTC.
