so much to update you on

A new blogpost. A blank canvas. Hello!!!
I’ve been wanting to write for a while now, but every minute of free time I have in consumed with Coulsen… or sleep. Haha. I, if I’m being real with you, have no idea what this blog post will turn into. I don’t have an idea or a plan. Just me, writing my little heart out.
The last post I posted was in November. 2017!!!!!! Is that baffling to anyone else? I made a vow long ago to try to post once a week but I guess that’s not really happening, huh?.... Oh well. Sometimes we have goals and we don’t quite reach them but that’s okay. There’s always next week or next month or next year. And those things I’ve been focused on lately are all good things! So let’s cut myself some slack (remember to cut yourself some slack every once in a while, too).
Thanksgiving came and went. I went to Rigby (ID) with my dad and step mom and spent that short half a week with my step family. Luckily I was able to visit my bff Elizabeth and pick out her wedding dress wi…

the magic in my headphones

It’s been a while. I guess it’s been a while for multiple reasons, and those are because for one, I’ve been working, and if I’m not at work, then I’m traveling or at church or with friends. But being busy shall never be an excuse for not writing (I can HEAR Ernest Hemingway rolling in his grave and Stephen King laughing at me from wherever that crazy psycho- genius lives). The second reason is because this blog is meant to be my thoughts. It’s meant to be coherent and organized thoughts and ideas and events from my life but my life and my mind is ALL OVER THE PLACE THE MAJORITY OF THE TIME. To counteract this problema that I face, I enlisted some friends, and one in particular requested this topic. Hey, I thought I should branch out and try something new.
Oh, hey look, it's me. This is one of many pictures coming up guest staring people whom I love, and who were kind and generous enough to help me out with this blog. So, if you see a pic of someone listening to music, and see an it…

life and love and all that good stuff

Well, I can safely say this blog post won't be up at the time I intended it to be, but hey. we shouldn't give up now, right?! 
After finally adding together all of the results from the poll I conducted and the people I asked personally, I came to a conclusion about what this blog would entail. I actually turned out to be a tie between two!!! But, to validate all the answers I got, and to keep my massive fan base (haha) happy, I decided to post blog posts about the other two choices as well, just at a later time. Be expecting those both in the next week or two.

So what's been going on with me lately?

Well, since the last time I posted (in July) A LOT has happened. At the end of July I got to take a trip to La Grande to spend Trampis's birthday with him, see my cousins from Las Vegas, and see another cousin get baptized in Boise. I worked most of August, and in between got to hang out with friends A LOT, and go to some fun events (the beach, my sisters bridal shower, et…

dear blog

Dear Blog, Okay, for real? I wrote like... a whole long post about my life lately and you DELETED IT ALL. It's okay, I'll do this instead. I still love you to get my writing energy out, because I've had so much built up lately and no time to release any of it.

Dear Eastern Oregon, You are really beautiful! This valley was my home last year and it grew on me- lack of places to eat and things to do and all. I appreciate the weather (maybe not the wind, though) and the people it grew. EOU, I'll see you in September!
Dear Trampis and Jess, I can't say congratulations enough! To both of you for graduating, to both of you for getting engaged, and to both of you for taking the next steps towards your future careers. Tramp, It's going to be so fun to see you off and student teaching this year!! I can't wait to see you grow as a history teacher.
Dear Futon, You are NOT comfortable to sleep on, especially since I've been doing so for the past month... That…
