Despite the problems my mom and I went through, she's still been there for me the most. She always gives me that motherly advice, takes care of me when I'm sick, and hugs me when I'm sad. She's always calm and patient with me, and listens to me when I'm having a bad day.
I love my mom and I'm so thankful to have her in my life.
Yeah, I made that picture. Now, to understand it, let me explain the story behind it.
Sam Cassell is an NBA player. He used to play for the Boston Celtics and everytime I saw him I would scream, "HE LOOKS LIKE AN ALIEN!!!"
Seriously, the guy is creepy looking. I used to be terrified of aliens when I was younger, so his look doesn't rest easy with me. I don't like him! Maybe he's a nice guy... But he better cover that crap up before I'll be talking to him.
Anyways, with that said, I got the bright idea of putting Sam Cassell in place of ET. It's probably just funny to me because of my personal opinions on his look, but I laugh everytime.
Come on, you can't tell me he doesn't look like an alien. He totally does.
For this one, I'm choosing two. Long term would be my dad. That man is my hero. Short term, is my cousin Morgan. She's become my best friend in a little over two months. Not that we weren't friends before, our relationship has just gotten stronger over the last little while.
Warning: I'm about to get mushy!
This girl is amazing. She's beautiful, kind, caring, smart, I could go on forever! She's also the reason I've changed my lifestyle completely.
I've always struggled with where I stand as far as religion goes. I just didn't feel like anything was right for me. But that's before I started hanging out with Morgan as much as I do now. Having Sunday dinners and joining her whole family for FHE, really inspired me. I just had this overwhelming feeling that I should give the church another chance. She's helping me so much and I don't even think she knows it.
She's a great influence on me. I've gained confidence in myself, I'm more motivated, and I feel I'm all around a better person because of her.
I'm so blessed to have the amazing family I do.
Morgan, thanks for all you've done for me. I really appreciate it, and I love ya!
My Dad, Keith:
My dad is definitely the rock in my life. He's always there for me, helping me, supporting me. He just wants the best for his kids and he tries his hardest to give it to us. Which he does. My brother and I are so lucky.
My dad shows me that no matter what happens in your life, you need to stay strong. I've never seen anyone as strong as my dad. No matter what is thrown at him, he takes it in stride. He gets through it and never complains.
I've grown so close with my dad over the past couple of years because of what we've been through together. I love him for everything he does and I'm the luckiest girl alive to have a father like him.
I'm the master at making stupid faces. It's my specialty. Probably 75% of my pictures, have me pulling some pretty interesting faces. I love being crazy, and having fun, so this picture, is perfect in showing my true colors.
I ruin my nails all the time! I'll rip off my fingernails when they get too long. I don't do it the proper way, you know, grabbin' the file and fingernail clippers. At least I don't bite them anymore. I also pick at my cuticles and make myself have hang nails. My fingers are gross looking. I need to stop.
This is Lindsey. She's the craziest girl I've ever met. The things that she comes up with and that come out of her mouth are just amazing. Half of the time, I don't even know where it comes from. If you ever need an adventure, here's your girl.
This one is tough. But right now, graduation is a wonderful memory for me. I know it's pretty recent, but it was always such a huge deal to graduate. My family didn't think I could do it, and neither did the faculty at my school. Well, I did it. I've never been so proud of myself. It was kind of like an "In your face!" moment for me. It made me feel fantastic, and the fact that everyone else was proud of me too, was great.
Well, I started a blog. Only cuz one of my students has one, and I wanted to be able to see it. Along with some other people's. I can tell you it's not going to be much of a blog though. I might drop a line here or there, but I don't really have anything to say. So that's pretty much the jist of it.
