The Waiting Game

So…I timed my mission call exactly right. It’s coming the very last day of finals! Hurrah! Wasn’t that just the best timing?
I really hope you could hear the sarcasm in that.
Seriously though, this is the worst. Here I am, trying my hardest to study, when I get a text from my bishop telling me that the General Authorities should be assigning my call tomorrow.
I’m just a little bit excited. I knew the timing was rotten when I planned it, but as usual, I ignored the little voice of reason in my head. I couldn’t wait!
Well, now I have to wait, and my grades can’t. I was actually doing fine until that text. Well, my roommate opened her call yesterday (Lima, Peru!), and that kind of started my excitement. But the text…it pushed me over the edge. No offense, Bishop. That was my own fault.
(Side note: this girl is not a fan of Sponge-Bob Square Pants. I’m sitting at work, and it’s been playing on the t.v. in the lobby for the last hour and a half. I may scream. Or run out. Or both.)
Anyway, I just thought that ya’ll should know that I’m trying hard to focus. It’s a work in progress. Wishing all of my BYU friends a happy finals week, and may the odds be ever in your favor.  


  1. I think the timing is brilliant!! It gives you the best thing to look forward to once your finals are done...and then you can come home and celebrate/open with your family and not have to try to re-engage your brain for another final. you KNOW you wouldn't have the energy to reboot for a final final AFTER you opened your call. Our nephew should get his the same day as you--so we are double crossing fingers for both of you! Can't wait ti hear...but I know, Nicole, wherever you get called you will be wonderful!!

  2. That's so exciting! Clark said he saw on facebook that you were getting your call. DO YOU KNOW YET WHERE YOU'RE GOING!??! We are so excited for you. I had no idea you had sent in your papers. Every time I ran into you, you seemed so tired and frazzled. If there is anything Clark and I can do for you, don't hesitate to ask us! We love you and are so proud of you. We hope our kids turn out just like you. Your mom did an awesome job kiddo. And ps. Spongebob is awesome. It's one of the only kids shows we tolerate! ;)
