My mom asked me a question today.
And I quote:
"Do you think you're going to make it at West Dean?"
This is the moment I decided to go to England, become a kick-a conservator, and make conservation friends (who in no way will replace my American friends).
Side note: This makes me wonder if my mom is asking me this to make sure I'm not wasteing time and money or to get me fired up...something I tend to do when people question my abilities. Guess I'll never know, but if it's the latter it worked.
Another side note: The other girl from BYU that went to West Dean sent me a couple emails asking if 1. I wanted her to leave her cell phone, hair dryer and desk fan for me (H YES!) 2. She told me all about the amazing ward out there and how much she loved the bishop and that they are her English family (cough cough) 3. She told me she got a job at the Yale Center for British Art (HELL YES! That's amazing!!!!!)
Love you all. Miss you more than I could ever say.
