No one is going to Argentina. Where will I be going?

This week was really good! It is still really hard but I am learning a ton! I find out either tomorrow or Friday if I am getting reassigned! I haven't heard of anyone going to Argentina yet. There is a rumor that starting in September Argentina will let more missionaries in but that is all I know. I have met so many kids going to my mission and a ton of the kids I meet are going Argentina. I got a haircut today. I buzzed it and it feels awesome! On Sunday me and Elder Thurgood had to teach a 50 minute lesson. It went a lot better than I expected. I do almost the same thing everyday. I usually have gym first thing in the morning. I play basketball when they let us and its way fun! When they don't let us go into the gym I run around the mtc a few times. I have gained about 10 pounds! I hope I can gain a little more. After gym time I have personal study for 1 to 2 hours. Then I have breakfast. I am not a big fan of the breakfast here. I love the cereal but the meals are not that good. I eat a ton of fruit but I am starting to get sick of it. They only serve cantaloupe, pineapple and honey do. I eat a bowl of those every meal and I am starting to get super sick of them. After breakfast I have 3 hours of class. During class I usually teach for an hour and then learn new Spanish things for the rest of it. After class I have about 2 more hours to study and then lunch. Lunch and Dinner are not bad but they serve chicken with everything so I am starting to get sick of that. After lunch I have another 3 hours of class. After class I have TALL for an hour. Its a language computer program. After tall I have dinner. After dinner I have 1 to 2 hours of Language study. Then I plan for the next day and have about 30 minutes of free time before I go to bed! That is what I do almost everyday. There are a few things that switch up but its all pretty much the same. Some days can go by slow but for the most part they go by fast. When I came into the mtc we had five districts in our zone and now were down to 2 and we didn't get a new district today. Church will be weird with only 16 people there. I eat lunch every meal with my district. I usually only see Jordan at meal times but everyone just sits with there districts. The only time I get to off campus is when I visit the temple grounds on Sunday and when we go to the Marriott center on Tuesday nights. Everyone that has spoke at the Marriott center is a General Authority. I have no idea who they were but they were really good. They give me 6 bucks a week at the book store here. I don't really use it that much. I don't really need anything. The new scriptures are coming out this week so do you want me to buy them down here??? Also should I dry clean my suits before I leave? And dad you never told me if I should buy a card reader here at the mtc. Most computers you need one to upload pictures here. Also when I buy stuff should just use my card or should I use the cash I brought with me? Its looks like Yellowstone was a blast! That's crazy football has started! I cannot believe Jaxson is playing this year! I wish I could watch him! He will be awesome. Try as hard as you can to get him on Maxfields team! Max and Ryan, I bet you guys are super excited! Mom Your packages are the best. Everyone says thanks for the packages. I am loving it here but would also love to get into the field. I love learning so much everyday. I miss you all so much! I love you!!!
