i realize this grand announcement is a little old-newsy, and some might argue that it doesn't quite deserve the hype that i'm going to give it, as it is going on 6 weeks since i first discovered the news.
the news that i am going to be serving my mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in:
BERLIN, GERMANY!!! for the next 18 months of my life.
[pretend like you didn't know that already and get WAY excited for me ok?]
i enter the MTC on dec.7, which also happens to be pearl harbor day, and rest assured that my dear history-loving heart fully recognizes and appreciates that fact.
i cannot even wait. i'm already obsessed (yes, i'll admit it) with anything and everything German. also, i enrolled in german 101 and learned that "mustache" in german = schnurrbart. say that out loud and NOT laugh, i seriously dare you.
so. there you have it. this blog posting of my mission call pretty much equals in officialness as the letter of acceptance i sent to the first presidency, right?
