Happy. Happy. Joy. Joy.

First off, I would like to thank everyone that has wished me a happy birthday today!
I seriously have the best friends/family in the world and feel so blessed and loved.

As most of you know, birthdays are not my favorite thing in the world. I am not a fan of all the attention and such that comes with getting older, (Thanks Momma haha).

I am pleased to say that I have successfully made it through the teenage wasteland! I'm sure many of you were hoping and praying that this day would one day arrive, and it has. I am sorry to say that maturity was not given as a going-away present as I exited the wasteland.

I know in my head I am really not old at all, but it still feels slightly odd and freaky. I am now 20 and can no longer blame my unpredictable, goofy, free-spirited ways of life on my youth....but on the happy side, only one more year until I can go on a mission! :)

Now, where am I on the age map of life? Too old to be young, and too young to be old....I have thus decided to continue to claim youth. I am at that awkward transitional spot in life where now the creepy old men at the laundromat say "If you don't mind me asking" prior to asking my age. Honestly old men, I mind you asking if I don't mind if you ask know?!

My lovely roommate, (who has successfully survived being 20), made me feel extremely happier about this whole situation, she said...

"Right now you are perfect! Yesterday you were a teenager, next year you will legally be an adult, but for now you are a nobody....and nobody's perfect!"


I am really loving this opportunity to be a nobody and plan on living it up!

Come on life, bring on the gray hair and wrinkles!

Vitamin D!

I have BIG NEWS, and am thinking this may be the first 'personal' posting I have done since my teardown/restart of this blog. Don't get used to it though. I'm a firm believer in real life relationships versus creeping on someone else's internet void. By the way, you really can comment on these posts....I can't tell you how many people talk to me or send me FB messages about something they read. You can comment my loves, it's probably quicker and easier for you.

Today the sun was shining in Rexburg, (which is quite the rare event this time of year), infusing me with happiness despite the wind's attempts at robbing me from that. It was marvelous! Hence the title of this post....Vitamin D! Love it!

Alright, here comes the BIG NEWS!

Happy News #1:
I am officially decided in my educational ways! What, may you ask, is my secret to loving life..?
Major: Financial Economics Minor: Communications
Super happy, right?! I am extremely happy with this decision and am going to run with it to graduation. Yes, I realize you are probably doubting this due to my frequent life plan changes, but for now I am happy, and that is all that really matters.

Happy News #2:
I have decided I really want to go on a mission! I phrase it as such, because I have not received a green light from the 'big guy'. Seeing as I will only be 20 next week, I have to wait a whole year until I could even go. While I would love to say I am definitely going, alas I cannot at this moment in time. All I can say is that I am preparing now to hopefully go, and if I get to it would be amazing! Time will tell.

WOAH THERE! I have officially dumped all of my most recent thoughts/feelings into the void. I hope you are enjoying your lovely lives....but most of all I hope you are keeping me updated on your lovely lives. :) May our dear friend, Vitamin D, visit you all in the nearest future!
