If you caught the news clip on me you'll have noticed the toward the end they metnioned that my parents have no idea Im doing this. Well that used to be true. My fathers response: "What the Hell is that kid doing?" My mother, however, sent me a wonderful email encouraging me to be safe and applauding my efforts to find out the draw and the undeniable allure of the minimalist life. It made me feel so much better about what I am doing! And I am bringing her out here in two weeks to celebrate my birthday with me and my aunt too and am SO SO excited to introduce her to my life and all of my friends out here in Utah!
Here is what has been going on lately:
I then went to the campus of BYU to use the internet and ran into some old friends who did not know how I had been living and were very surprised. I told them all about the goals and things I was learning and sort of was able to sway them to liking the idea. However I could not sway my bishop! See Im Mormon (duh, Utah) and my bishop is like my Pastor or Priest. He sent me an email saying that he had caught the news and seen me. He sounded so caring and worried for me and it broke my heart! And he wants to meet with me on Sunday, to gently scold me no doubt! Not looking forward to that. Wish me Luck!
