Thanksgiving was lots of fun, always have fun with my cousins. It seems like every family gathering we have a new joke that we base our lives around. This time it was FOREVER alone and Herp and Derp comics. So funny. Here is a sample of each.

Me and mckay tried to make our own Herp and Derp Faces..doesnt look right. BUTTT we did a cousin picture (minus Tanner) of us FOREVER ALONE! outfit looked so amazing on Thanksgiving! And my mommy looked great too! We took some awesome mom and daughter photos. So grateful for her!

Thanksgiving was just so much fun and now it is time for the HOLIDAYS! Getting my Christmas tree up, getting Shea's advent gifts ready, just love this time of year!

I leave you with a family photo.

Keep Calm and Jingle On,

It is such a scary thought being a junior and having to plan the rest of my life! This thought came to me today and I printed out 10 scholarship essays to do this weekend, and researched my dream collage. It has been my dream collage since I was like 9.
I was looking around the website looking for the journalism degree, but later on I figured out that to get a journalism degree I actually get a major in communication with a focus on journalism.

At the conference I went to for newspaper, I took a class on people wanting to get a degree in journalism. The speaker highly recommended that you get minor in something else you like. This way it opens up many options for you. I was looking between history and political science, and the political science classes seems so much more exciting. That might be my minor.

It is so hard to think that in less then a year and a half I will be on my own in a different state, cooking for myself, meeting new people, and handling everyday life. At the same time it is exciting that I can be with other LDS members, make new friends, and possible meet my eternal companion.

I emailed the communication department, and I am trying to set up a tour at the campus and for their department over spring break. Wish me luck on my journey everyone. Now I am off to memorize a scene of Shakespeare with a group.

Keep Calm and Carry On,

I love fall time, when the trees change colors, and holiday spirit starts! It makes me so happy around this time of year and I think it must be because my mother has rubbed off on me. In Young Womens we made a THANKFUL banner for our home as decorations and this inspired to say the top 10 things I am thankful for!

1. My family is of course number one! It is for like everyone. I am thankful for my Mom and Dad, Step Dad, Uncles, Aunts, and cousins. Too many family members I am proud of to name.

2. My friends, but most of all my friends who have got me through the most; Bruna, Anna, Konner, Marissa just to name a few. They have no idea how thankful I am for them to be in my life.

3. My school. Most countries don't have the opportunity to get the education I do, and without school I wouldn't have a reason to wake up to get me motivated.

4. Church. I am a proud Latter Day Saint, and my church is my life. Without it I don't know where I would be emotionally. It is my stability in life.

5. Hard work that everyone puts in to making this country run. If one person didn't do their job out world would be less stable, and every job is one that the country needs. I am thankful for all people who work.

6. I am thankful for my country, being the land of the free. This allows me to express my freedom of speech(which I really need with my mouth).

7. I am thankful for all the people who create art and make such beautiful things to make the world more pleasant and gorgeous.

8. This may sound naive, but I am thankful for technology. Without it I don't know how I would get school work done, or anything done, or have friends. jk

9. I am thankful for the house over my head and the food on my plate.

10. I am thankful for all my pets for giving me happiness, comfort and protection.

Keep Calm and Be Thankful,

My computer broke :(

SO i am now using the laptop till further notice, because every time I would do a google search and click on a link, it would take me elsewhere. EVERY TIME! I thought it was a google error, guess not. Anyways, I attended Youth Summit with the Northglenn Youth Commission, we have some great things in store for the city! Then Shae spend the night and we watched my favorite childhood book that was also a movie; A Little Princess. At first she didn't want to but she loved it! Then today we woke up did our homework and tons of other fun stuff.

Tonight is going to be a truly special spiritual experience. I get me patriarchal blessing. It is revelation you can receive in a special prayer done by a patriarch, and tells you of blessing you will receive if you stay on the right path. Here is a link to better explain;

and i also have a profile;

Keep Calm and Pray On,
