i met a new friend at my mission reunion a few weeks ago. we were both needing to get to utah county from salt lake so we went together. as we drove, i talked about my fears of taking the GRE that next week. go figure this new friend had taken it and had done pretty well. he had recorded a lot of the difficult vocab words so that he could listen and study. not expecting much since he had just flown in from chicago, i asked if he had a copy with him. =)
yep, because he is remarkable, he totally had them on his computer. so we went to my house and he downloaded them for me!! i listened to these words over and over the next 3 full days at work until i took the really fun test!
the reason i mentioned the call for service from the Relief Society site is because although this new friend is very much a man, he wins the service award for the year (nope, there isn't really an award that the presidency is offering, but if there were, i'd make sure it went to my friend . . . )!
let's just take a minute and list his great efforts in the last few weeks in my behalf:
- GRE words
- taught me that i don't need to pump the brakes on the ice - that was for the last generation of cars. who knew??
- patiently editing my essay drafts.
- he gives positive feedback and yet is honest with what should be deleted.
- let me knock him out a few times in wii boxing.
