Hello everyone! So this is the actual Sister Bracken. I leave for the MTC tomorrow and I'm just trying to get everything set up for my mom. Man, what a crazy day! My friend Nikole Smith and I went to the Bountiful Temple this morning (she's entering the MTC tomorrow also, going to Chicago Illinois, spanish speaking). Then a trip to the Distribution Center and to Wally-World. Then I had to say good-bye to Craig, and then I got set apart! I'd packed a little earlier, but now we're in the hard-core stage. I'll be entering the MTC tomorrow around 12:40, and then the REAL adventure begins! Luckily for me, the MTC will be chock-full of people I know. My cousin Reece, my friend Allison Long, Nikole, and my other two friends who are also entering tomorrow, Jen Moore and Katie Robinson. I might even see a few familiar faces amongst the employees (from my year at BYU). I'm not going to lie, I've cried a few times today, I'm sure from a healthy mix of being tired, overwhelmed, and having to say goodbye to people. Hopefully it will get better! Wish me luck!
