Day 10: That embarrassing moment.

So I have this theory...
you know how whenever you ask someone 
what their most embarrassing moment is
they...draw a blank?

That's how I feel right now.
I have this theory that most embarrassing moments
are repressed from us.

I have an embarrassing moment though, 
if you want to read on.

It was the summer before my sophomore year,
and it was Cody, Josh and I on the tramp.
They were having a contest 
as to who could do the best tricks.
due to my lack of skills
I got to judge.

I did have one trick, 
I could a pretty good two touch.
So in my brand new pink birthday capri's,
I yelled, "Hey look what I can do!"

And then there was a riiiiiiiiiiiiiip.
my pants had split from my butt to my knees.
The boys couldn't stop laughing, 
and I had to wear Josh's pants.

I just remember sitting there 
waiting for them to bring me a blanket inside
and blushing as pink as my pants.

Day 9: Ten people who have influenced me

In no particular order, these are the ten people who first came to mind. I would just like to say before I list them, that there are countless people who have influenced my life, and I would like to thank them all.

1. My mother. She taught me to be a good person. She taught me to be selfless and forgiving.
2. My 9th grade Seminary teacher, for helping me regain my testimony.
3. Bishop Craig Roberts. He has cared for my family when no one else did, years after leaving his ward boundaries, and he being released from his calling.
4. My cousin Alex, for teaching me to love myself again, and giving me someone to share moments with that would have otherwise been painful and empty.
5. Kaitlyn Livingston. When at the end of a terrible friendship, she came in and pulled me out of the mud. She was there for me in moments when no one else would have been. I stand in awe at the strong and amazing person she is.
6. Michael White. He has been such a wonderful friend and example of selfless service.
7. J.T. for similar reasons as Michael.
8. My father. He showed me that it is never too late for a change of heart. He has grown so much, and I've been able to lean on him in ways I was never able to before.
9. Brennan Davis: for showing me what love was like, and giving me the chance to find an even better one.
10. Abbie Starkey, for teaching me to have a tougher skin, and helping me to learn that people express love in different ways.

Day 7: The dream career

When I was 11, I wanted to be an ambassador.
In high school I wanted to be an elementary school teacher.
My absolute dream job is to be a therapist through LDS family services, and help families grow stronger in the gospel.

The little things

I woke up this morning to my roommate bringing me breakfast in bed.
My study buddy made me dinner.
I didn't have to make a single meal today.
There are always people out there that care,
 you just have to keep your eyes open long to see them.

The hardest thing I've ever been 6

I've blogged about it before, and probably will again.
The hardest thing I ever went through, was losing my life-The life I had planned with the person whom I had been promised eternity. He cut that promise short by a few trillion years, and went and married my friend. But no sob story here. I'm still trucking. It happened October 13th 2011 and it still affects me, though a little bit less every day. I would never take back the love I had, because I learned what love was like, and I know exactly what to look forward to.
