Carpe Diem

On the last day of school before fall break, Me and my best friend Willow were heading to 4th period. We were almost kind of dreading another hour and a half before we would be out of school for UEA. The class was seminary, which is the only reason we did go. :) haha but just to give you a little background on me and Willow's seminary class; There is about maybe 5 sophmores in that class, and then the rest is all juniors and seniors. That class is always quiet and we never talk. Usually when you have a seminary class you are supposed to bond and be a family. You should be comfortable with your class. But this class just isn't comfortable with each other yet. So Me and Willow show up to seminary, and surprisingly there is a substitute. His name was Mr. Rapp. He greeted us at the door and learned our names at heart as we walked in. Me and willow grabbed our scriptures and took our seats. Once class started Mr. Rapp started taking roll. He asked each of us two questions as he called our names. We spent the entire class period laughing and getting to know each other. It was the class period that we needed. I felt so comfortable. As Mr. Rapp broke down barriers between the classmates of our Seminary class, we all started to open up to each other. Then He let us start to ask him questions. One of the girls in the class raised her hand and asked "how did you get wrapped into this?" The whole class laughed and Mr. Rapp asked "is that a punn?" we all giggled including Mr. Rapp. We spent an hour getting to know everyone in the class. We didn't have a lesson that day. But sometimes those are the class periods that we get the most out of. We learn from each other. Mr. Rapp closed the day by saying "Think about it, two hours ago we didn't know each other. But now after an hour and 15 minutes I know each and every one of you guys, and I will never forget you." He then made one more joke. He said "Carpe Diem. Live everyday so that tomorrow you have no regrets. Carpe Diem, Seize the Day. The old YOLO. you never know what will come upon you in your life, but take it head on and stand strong." Having Mr. Rapp come into our little class of silent, awkward, high school students was exactly what our class needed to break down barriers that were put up from day one. That day in seminary we had two of the students that never show up come to class, and one of the kids in that class that usually doesn't participate and just comes and sits with his head on his desk and his earphones in, he actually started talking to us. Having that substitute some to class that day was in a way a miracle. An answer to our prayers. It was a great way to end the weekend. Carpe Diem everybody.
