I just spent the last few minutes looking through my previous posts realizing how much has changed in my life in the past year. I've met so many great new friends Also, I can't believe it's already May.. 2012 is flying by.
A few things...
I've known this kid for almost 9 years now. I just counted and I'm kind of shocked by that number haha. 7th grade. Cute new boy. How could I resist being his bestie?! Hah He has made the decision to serve a mission for 2 years in Alaska. Although he will be doing great things in an incredible area, the selfish side of me wants to block his way to the MTC so I don't have to brave Provo without my bearded confidant. Sadly we didn't spend much time together between school and work and life, but when I'm with this guy it's like no time has passed and we're back to where we left off. He's really the best and the next two years won't be the same without him and I'm going to be totally behind in music, but I'm totally stoked to annoy him with so many letters and hear all the great stories about serving in the Alaskan wilderness. Alright, now I sound obsessed with this kid.. Time for some picture spam. Sorry I'm not sorry. <3
|Yup. That's us.|
This one time I decided to take a trip to see Aaron for my birthday/halloween and the city stole my heart. Firstly, my heart jumped when I saw this boy walking up to me at the train station. To say I missed him a lot would be an understatement. He's the one that keeps me sane at my lowest moments and I don't know what I'd do without him. I still miss him like crazy and I've decided that just going to move Chicago. The end.
ANYWAY, the trip was so fun, we went to the zoo and killed zombies with paintballs and I met lots of cool people and I dressed up like a flapper girl and he was a pirate and we saw a show and everything was perfect. I need to go back.
This place is where my heart is. But really. Best friends, great gelato, beautiful ocean, swap meets, concerts, hikes.. What more could a girl want?! I decided to go see some friends last weekend- best choice ever. The Death Cab for Cutie concert was the most amazing concert I've ever seen in my life and I was almost in tears.. Not even exaggerating. Hopefully I will make my way back to this glorious state in the near future. I've decided I'm also moving here. Yup.
Obsessed with Concerts.
City and Colour.
Salt Lake City
Love. Love love love.
Great company and unbelievable talent.
Front Row, crazy friends, free
signed cd, and terrific music.
|I have beautiful friends.|
DEATH CAB FOR CUTIE.
Gorgeous orchestra accompaniment, almost crying like 17283 times, and the most amazing concert hall. By far the best concert I've ever been to. I <3 Ben Gibbard.
|It was a sweet light show too.|
I'm comin' home.
So my plan was to stay in Provo for Spring term and take some classes and then go back to Texas for the rest of the summer. Then I went home after finals, got some crazy stomach virus and missed the first week of school. Which is pretty much like missing 2 weeks in a normal semester. Plan. Annihilated. I decided it'd be a better use of my time to go home, get my nannying job back and just play for the summer. I'm stoked. It's going to be a fun summer with some great friends and yummy food from my mama. Priorities people.
Speaking of my mom.
|Take a look at this beauty.|
Oh dear, how I've missed this woman. Pride and Prejudice + Rocky Road Blue Bell is our favorite past time. She knows the right things to say at exactly the right moments and will forever be my best best friend. I love this woman so incredibly much and I'd be lost without her. No matter what, she's always there. She makes great cookies... and great everything to be honest. She's a doctor, a chauffeur, a cheerleader, a teacher, an alarm clock, a shoulder to cry on, a live-in chef.. I could keep going forever but I don't want to make all of you jealous. Happy Mothers day to the bestest mother I could ever ask for.
I love you, mommy.
|Some of my favorite people.|
|I just don't have an explanation for this.|
I don't even think I've included half of the things that have happened in the past year, but this is getting obnoxiously long. School has been crazy, but I've been doing well so I can't complain. Plus, I'm almost DONE! No, I don't know what I want to do with my life anymore.. But I'm young so I'm not stressing. I know I want to travel the world with the people I love and work at an orphanage in a third world country and be happy. So that's a good start.
Until next time..
Much loves <3
