Merry Christmas!

It definitely feels like christmas, with the snow coming down as i write this! Beka is getting ready for bed as we speak, waiting for santa to come!

being home is very relaxing, and i love it. Seeing old friends is awesome, but its weird to think most of them are going on missions and I wont see them again for two years. Im growing up, and i dont know if i like it or not!!!!

I miss all my friends back at USU though, and I miss dance parties! me and caitlin and alycia went over to the Pike house the weekend before finals and plugged my ipod into their stereo system downstairs and had a dance party. it
was interesting, to say the least. Atleast we know how to have fun! :)

I wish it was spring already, I hate the snow.
This is one of the very rare times you will see me out in the snow, and smiling about it! My roommate Jac took me snowmobiling while i was visiting her after finals and we went snowmobiling. I got a little chilly, but I actually had fun!

I was driving back from christmas eve service tonight and almost spun off the road. luckily our tahoe has good tires. :) But i still dont like the snow! the only time its okay for it to snow is on christmas. and its supposed to be clear and sunny this year. God sure has a sense of humor...haha.

Santa is coming. I must go to sleep!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

First Semester, complete!

one semester of college done, ten million more to go. :)

the most insane 4 months of my life so far, and i love every second of it. Where I am now I would have never thought i would have been 6 months ago. I have grown so much as a person and realized more about myself than I ever thought I would.
The rest of my college career is going to be a wild ride, and I am so ready for it. Im ready to create my future and my life the way I have always imagined it. :]
Ive learned to accept myself, and learn that people that you dont like really arent worth keeping in your life. Its not going to do me any good to have someone in my life who just causes me to stress constantly. Ive also learned that being alone isnt that bad, and sometimes it can be a good thing. And being single is great. I am waiting for the right person to come sweep me off my feet. But Im willing to wait. :] God is taking care of me, and I know this because without him I probably would have already failed.

Ive also learned that people will come in and out of your life, but the true friends are the ones you stay by your side forever. I have a lot of new friends in my life, and they mix right in with the old ones. My roommates, my AXO sisters, and everyone else Ive met at USU have all been amazing people that i wish to keep for the rest of my life. But along with them I have my old friends, Ash, Jorge, Jaren, and all of you who i love :] who have still stuck by my side no matter the distance, and we still act crazy together and dont let anything hold us back from having a good time.

My family has supported me through all of this and i wouldn't have even made it this far without them. They are my rock, my support, and my go to. My parents are the whole reason I'm here, and I could never tell them how thankful I am for that.

High school is only the beginning, and for those of you who are in high school, enjoy it while you can. its fun, easy, and you have to be there, so make the best of it. because when you leave you realize that the rest of your life is way too short to waste time hating what your doing.

all and all, i love my crazy beautiful life. no matter how ugly it can get at times. :]

My To-Do list at USU:

Become a true aggie(officially)
go to midnight pizza at the junction
attend as many basketball games as possible
clean the sink at angies!
....I know theres more. but i just cant think of them right now!
