Anyway, today was the first day of General Conference! Tadah! This time they had the Women's Session, too, and it was a really good session. President Nelson gave a talk that was basically like look, we don't ordain men to the priesthood because they're more important, okay? And it was a lot of stuff that we felt had been said a lot and we wish it didn't have to keep being said, but if anybody can give a "women are awesome" talk that doesn't annoy me, it's President Nelson. And I realize my attitude about the whole thing is absolutely terrible, but...I don't know, I don't have any excuses. It's a good thing President Nelson is more loving than I am.
And then he made all the new temple announcements right there in the Women's Session. It used to be he'd save those for the very end of Conference. I think it was kind of a gift to the women, as a token of how much they appreciate us or something. I don't really know how to explain it.
The main thing that stood out to me overall from today's Conference sessions is that I need to step up and be more committed to the gospel. Like, I need to spend less time staring at silly mobile games and more time thinking of ways I can be helpful to people. It's not something I'm really used to, and we don't have a lot of people in our lives to be useful to, but there's always something! And the more I work on it, the easier it will be to find out what it is.
Today I'm thankful for three great sessions of General Conference, the love that was shown by all of the speakers, the adorable young choir that sang at the Women's Session, getting to watch Glaciator again, and Page being such a good kitty.
