I Can't Seem To Make Up My Mind.

My blog is UGLY!! I've been struggling with making it look cute. I need to learn how to do it cuz it's been making me mad!

Anyways, I've had something eating away at me in the back of my mind all day today. It would've been an important day, but when your good friend STOPS TALKING TO YOU COMPLETELY, things happen to change. Apparently doing good for others isn't ok with some people, but oh well. That's all I'm going to say about it.

On a brighter note, my dad and I invited some family to the Spanish Fork Fiesta Days rodeo last night. It was way fun! It was my cousins' first time at the rodeo too, so I like to think they had fun as well. While we were watching all the events, the announcer kept saying how much money they made in that season alone. Holy crap! Cowboys make bank! This made me come to the conclusion that I'm marrying a rodeo cowboy. Why the heck not? They make a lot of money, most of them are extremely good looking, and they're on the road a lot so when you get sick of them, they'll just go ride a horse and buy you pretty things. ;] Haha I only wish. I know that's not how life works, but a girl can dream, can't she?

I tend to "dream" a lot. I change my life plans every 2 months. In some cases every two weeks. For example, while I was in high school, I changed my career choice ALL the time. I started out wanting to be in the medical field. It was only natural, almost everyone in my family is a nurse. First I started out wanting to be an RN, then it went to paramedic, then a post-op nurse, then a chiropractor. After that I chose not to be in medicine at all. I wanted to be a photographer. I did really like it... Until I took photography classes. So after the photography, I had no idea what I wanted to do, but that's when I found the special needs field.Working with people with special needs is the most rewarding thing I've ever done in my entire life. I absolutely love it. So after high school I got a job at a charter school as a special needs aide. That's when I decided I wanted to be a special needs teacher! Yeah, not going to happen. So there I was, jobless and changing my mind yet again.

What was I going to do now? Well,  I've always done really well with kids, so that summer I was going to be an East Coast nanny. I was serious about this too. I found an agency, put my application in, and pretty much got a family, but then, I got my current job with Danville Services. Bye, bye nannying. I decided to stay here and earn money. Staying here isn't settling well with me though. I'm in that phase of life where I just have to get out of here and experience something new in life. So what do I do? Look for an apartment in St. George! Danville has a branch down there, so I was just going to transfer and start a new life for myself. Hah. That lasted literally 2 weeks. Don't get me wrong, I was serious about that too, but something came up. Beauty school, actually. I've always had a passion for the beauty industry. I love doing make-up, getting my hair, nails, and eyelashes done. It just fascinates me so much. I've looked into many different aesthetic programs but I never had enough money to start.

I always figured, if I'm going to do aesthetics, why not do hair as well? I was mentioning this to my friend that does my eyelashes, and asking her if she thought hair school or apprenticing would be better. I was thinking I'd do better apprenticing, but I didn't really know. Anways, my friend said apprenticing is better in her opinion and her boss is actually looking for someone to start in December! Boy, did this catch my attention! I talked to her boss about it and I can afford it, and my schedule at work allows me to be able to do school as well as work. All in all, the point of this very long novel of a post is that I want to start doing hair in December. Hopefully this isn't just another one of my decisions that won't last. I want this soooo bad, and I really, really would like to go through with it. I'm going to call the lady looking for an apprentice tomorrow and tell her how serious I am about it, and maybe she'll consider me.

So here's to moving on with life, and figuring out what you want! Wish me luck!

I Brake For Birds

Why is it when someone mentions a fundraiser, or anything of the sort, people ignore it, but when a party is mentioned, people go nuts over it? I don't know. But it drives me nuts. Now you ponder upon that.

Anywho, today, as I was driving home from work, there was a lil baby birdy in the street. It didn't start to fly away very fast, so I found myself slowing down so I wouldn't hit it. I then realized I do this quite often. I also realized I scream the same whether I'm about to hit a child, or a bird. I've come to the conclusion that birds get bored with their lives and like to play "chicken." Kinda like how deer play "frogger." Silly animals. Didn't your mothers ever tell you to look both ways before you play in the street?

I'm not really sure what the point of this post was... I just felt like blogging, I suppose. I'm probably a bit more tired than I actually think I am, but I shall leave you at that. Have a beautiful day, children.

Happy Birthday, America!

Why I love the 4th of July:
  • I'm a very patriotic person, so I love when everyone gets together to celebrate our freedom.
  • I love summer and it's a day to cram all summer festivities.
  • I spend the entire day with my family and friends.
  • Barbecue's!
  • Playing in the sun.
  • Thanking veterans and soldiers for what they've done/are doing for us.
  • And last but not least, putting my hand over my heart and saying the Pledge of Allegiance, singing The Star Spangled Banner, and just respecting that small symbol that represents such a big thing
The Fourth of July is definitely my favorite holiday! Well... The day time part of it at least. As I've mentioned before in one of my posts, I have a phobia of spontaneous loud noises. So as you can guess, fireworks don't settle well with me. Now that they've made aerial fireworks legal in Utah, I feel like I'm in a stinkin' war zone! I tried watching some tonight and I had to literally book it into my cousin's house. It makes me feel dumb, but I honestly cannot help it! Not to mention that one of them bolted me in the leg! It hurt me. Haha, I'm ok though. Just a lil bruise. All in all, I can say that today was a great day! I had so much fun and I can't wait til next year!

Happy Independence Day!

We Kind Of Did It

Yeah, Morgan and I pulled off the Benefit Concert. BY OURSELVES! To all ya'lls that said we couldn't do it, IN YO FACE, SUCKAS!

Anyways, I would like you to go look at the information on our blog for Cole, so please click here.

Planning this concert was one of the most stressful situations I've ever been in. Morgan and I shared the tasks equally, but we also had our fair share of emotions. All the tears, anger, joy, depression, were well worth it. We did something so amazing, and despite what I've said, we did enjoy it. It made us proud regardless of any negative emotion or encounters we had to face. Not to mention we're kind of experts on fundraisers now!

Our goal for the Keller Family was to raise $8,000. So far, we've earned about $7,000. We're so close to our goal! We're not going to stop there, either. We're going to continue earning money, but the fact that we reached our goal so fast, is awesome.

 It. Feels. Good.
