...What you're about to read is raw, heartfelt emotion from Elder Peacock in response to Utah Jazz head coach, Jerry Sloan's retirement. Skyler is the biggest Jazz fan there is, and this is hard news for him to hear tidbits about and not be able to really react to in the way he would normally react, which to be honest, IS a good thing. Let's just say, it's good he heard about this news while he was in the MTC, because otherwise, he might tell you all how he REALLY feels. :) ...
That makes me mad that Jerry just quit like that -- like I really want to cry, it's ridiculous. I heard they lost like 8 games in a row or something. But that doesn't really matter, so whatever (he is really mad...).
On a much happier note, I only have like 11 more days in the MTC and I'm so ready to get there! All I can think about is my new companion, the mission president, all the new people I get to meet, no more english, and my first area -- I'm so pumped! Portuguese is coming pretty good. I have learned so much. I'm not fluent by any means, but I'm so ready to just go do it. Oh! Way cool, yesterday we got our flight plans. So cool... So we go from SLC to Denver, then to Frankfurt, Germany (so awesome) and then into Porto, Portugal. Hahaha, I can't even explain how excited I am! Portugal is going to be amazing! I had an idea -- don't come pick me up at the end of my mission. Let's go back in the summer when the weather is nice and maybe when the temple is done, or at least started. :)
But not a lot else going on with me -- same good stuff. Oh, I met a teacher here from Turlock, CA and she knows Samuel and Trevor! Her name is Sister Holtzclaw, that was pretty cool. But let me know how everybody is doing. One last thing, I'm going to need some money in my account for when I fly out, in case I have to pay some bag fee. But I'm going to make sure everything is right before I leave, but just in case, I need money in there in case the airport people decide to be silly.
Oh yeah, and when I'm in the airport, I can call home :) so let me know what time is going to work so everyone can be there on the 22nd!
