One Day....

One day I will have more money and I will be able to do the things that I want. I will find a great job related to nutrition and I will have a big nice house. I will be able to travel. I will find someone I am compatible with and I will have a family.
One day I will live in Hawaii...But until then I will keep dreaming, working hard, and picture the things that I want in my life!

Emerald Bay

Camp Emerald Bay is a special place to me. I was lucky and had the opportunity to work out there for 2 summers. It is a boy scout camp on Catalina Island. I worked water front- teaching merit badge classes and driving ski boats. I think about my time out there often. I swear there's something in the water that gets you hocked! I am not sure what it is about Emerald Bay that really struck something inside of me...maybe the scenery- clear emerald water and desert rolling hills, or just the fact that it's an island, or living and working with great people (you really get to know people out there), or spending your only free time on Saturday nights dancing at the I, or being surrounded by scouts. The experience and people I got to know at camp will remain spacial to me!

I Heart U

The heart is a remarkable organ in our body. It not only keeps us alive but it endures our pain and happiness. It handles a lot that goes on in our lives. No matter how many emotions we encounter it keeps beating. I know mine has been through a lot over the last 5 years and I am sure it has more to bear in the future. I think heartache is one of the most painful experiences but you just have to keep breathing.
Life does not always work out the way we have hoped or planned. That's one of life's mysteries...we don't know where our lives may take us. When you get knocked down or question why something is happening in your life just believe there is a reason for it. Don't dwell on past mistakes or compare the past to the present. People grow and change that's the journey of life!

Time to Change

I am committed to changing my more back and forth. Yes, I have moved back to Utah and to be completely honest I thought I would feel differently about it, like a something inside of me would change instantly. But I have come to realize that only I can make that happen, not a place, not a person but myself. I have to really work on changing the way I think and see things. There is so much that I want to do with my life...I just want to go and travel and experience all that I can. But I guess I feel like something is holding me back from just taking off and money has a lot to do with it. I am applying to the Peace Corps, it is something I have given a lot of thought and I truly believe it will help me grow as a person and reevaluate my life.

My Sister

I really miss my little sister. When I moved back to Lancaster last April I lived at my dad's with her and we became close. It was really nice since I had not lived near her for 2 years. She became my best friend. I was really sad to leave her. We talked on the phone tonight, which was nice and I hope we will do that frequently. Amie and I are really different but I think we balance each other out. I hope one day we will live near each other again.

Back to Utah

Well, I have moved back to Utah in search of finding a "real" job. I think there is more opportunity in the health field here. So today it has snowed all day...don't know if I really missed that. I am glad to be here and living with my mom! Here is to a stepping stone in my life.
