Coming To A Close...


I'm aware of the fact that I've been missing from my blog for some time. I think it had to do with the fact that I had strep last week and I've been feeling weighed down from things in my life. And when things like that happen, sadly my blog suffers. Never fear, I'm creating a new goal to post at least three times a week from now on.
I move home a week from Saturday. It's a funny feeling. I can't believe that I'm finished with my first year of college. I can't believe that I'm even in college. I can't believe that a year ago, I was preparing to graduate from high school and move on with my life. I can't believe that I'm already moving out of my apartment. It feels like it was just yesterday that my parents helped me move in and left, and I cried on the kitchen floor for a solid thirty minutes while I unpacked my dishes.
My life didn't go as planned as I thought this year. Big surprise. There were many things that I didn't accomplish. There are many things that I did and I learned more than just what I was taught in lectures and from group projects. A part of me is disappointed with myself. I feel like I wasn't myself for a while this year. I feel like I hid inside my apartment more often that I should have and didn't meet as many people as I could have. But I'm hopeful for this coming year. I feel like my Heavenly Father has given me a second chance. He's placed me with a group of girls that's like an automatic group of friends. I'm hopeful. I'm positive. I'm stronger. I'm wiser.
I don't know what this summer will hold. Last summer was beautiful, wonderful, amazing, and parts of it were heartbreakingly hard to leave behind. Things can only get better.
I've been crazy blessed in my life. I just want to make sure I keep my eyes open wide enough to see it all.

Wreck This Journal Wednesday #1

I'm starting a new segment on my blog called "Wreck This Journal Wednesday". Ever heard of this book? It's all about overcoming perfectionism by wrecking the journal. I'm going to start chronicling which pages I've done every week and showing them here. If you have this journal, let me know and we'll link you up to "Wreck This Journal Wednesday"!
Happy wrecking!

When I Think About It, I Get a Squished Lung...

Lately, this has been on my mind. A lot. Thinking about not going back this summer makes me feel like my lungs are being squashed. I didn't think it would be this hard to say goodbye.
There goes my lung.

Awkward and Awesome Thursday

The Daybook has this wonderful thing called Awkward and Awesome Thursday. So many awkward things happened today that I HAD to create my own list.

-Eating jerky while sitting at the only available table near an outlet when there's a fan behind you and everyone can smell your jerky...Sweet and Spicy anyone?
- Ditching class only to find that on your way back home you run into every single person who's in your project group for that class. Walk of shame...
-Forgetting your checkbook at the DMV after you've already made 234234,04329 trips down there.
-Speeding like nobody's business on your way home to get said checkbook so that you can take your driving test. Ironic?
-Looking Chinese in your new Driver's Licence photo. Not that I have anything against the Chinese. I'm just...not.
-FINALLY getting my Utah licence. Except my heart cried a little bit when my Idaho licence got hole punched.
-Getting 100% on a quiz that I was not prepared to take.
-Buying things. Now I must refrain from it for a while.

Spring Fever Slump!

So, I've been a little absent lately. I'm hitting the spring fever slump since there's three weeks of school left. THREE WEEKS. Needless to say, I don't feel like doing anything, even blogging. But, I've been reminded by a few people that I need to update so here is goes...
Update #1: E is engaged.
Update #2: E made a newspaper dress that I then wore in a fashion show for one of her classes.
Update #3: My family came and visited me last weekend and I got spoooooiled. Taipan, IKEA, and Gateway Mall? Lucky, lucky, lucky.

Update #4: Thinking of changing my major here. Lately, I've been thinking of getting a degree in Marriage and Family Relations which would basically be like being a marriage and family therapist. Downside: I'd have to get a masters so that I could practice....8 years of schooling.
Oops. Did I just say that again?
