So Rick has been in the MTC for a week exactly!! YAY! But this has no doubt been the longest week! I really didn't realize how much I talked to Rick on a daily basis! We were always in constant contact. I have been waiting so patiently for a letter to come and waiting for one has made this week drag on! I totally know that he is busy! I am just so anxious to hear from him! I really need to get used to just hearing from him once a week and it is actually growing on me somewhat. I honestly have just realized that I am always curious about what he is doing, how he is doing, what is on his mind. It showed me that he is one of the people I care about the most and I truly love him!! It is going to be fun to write each other once a week but at the same time it has been so so hard to not always be talking to him!! has been a great way for me to talk to him everyday it has helped me feel closer to him! It is going to be great to hear a response!
I have been running to the mailbox everyday with high hopes and I know that this is week is THE week that I will get my first letter! It will make me so happy and so relieved to know that he is doing ok! His family forwarded me the email that he sent them and it made a world's of a difference! It is going to be even better when I get to hear from him personally!! These two years are going to go by fast.... I know that these just first couple of weeks are a little rough but I wouldn't want Rick any other place besides on his mission! I am so excited to hear his amazing experiences and stories! They are gonna be so awesome! Especially when he gets to Nicaragua!
Anyways.... I am just realizing how much I care about him and how excited I am to hear from him!! LETTER.... COME NOW!! :) haha! His P-day was yesterday so either today or tomorrow will probably be the day!

Ok.... so I know that I am for sure not a bookworm by any means!! But my friend abby lloyd and I told ourselves that we would become bookworms over the summer so it will make us feel smarter! :) So I finished one book... (Dear John) I actually finished it pretty quickly but I can't seem to get myself back into another book again!! I just can't get in the mindset of sitting down and reading a book! My mind starts to wander and I really can't focus and if I do start reading I forgot what I read! HELP! Why is it so hard for me! I honestly want to read just for fun but it seems like a challenge for me! So hopefully I get better! I am starting to reread Eclipse again because the movie is coming out soon so I need to refresh my mind... I guess thats a start?!! Oh well we will see! Hopefully I can keep it up! I really want to start making it a hobby!

starting off

I was just on facebook and I have been noticing that many people are starting blogs and I think it is a great idea to start one to keep track of my life and with people I can't really stay in touch with...this could help!! This blog will be following me growing up throughout college! "Leaving Neverland" I thought was a good title because I have never wanted to grow up I have always just wanted to stay forever young and be stress free and not worry about the adult things. Well it is time to face the facts... I am an adult so it is now time for me to leave Neverland and become an adult!! No more being a kid...crazy I know! I have to start facing the facts of figuring out what I am going to be doing job wise... making sure that my major is a good fit for me.... ma keep swimming and grades on my top priority list..... staying close to family since I am not living at home anymore.... making friendships that will last a lifetime.... finding your best friend and the love of your life aka the person that you will be with me forever! This time in my life is when I need to take these things very seriously and no more just throwing them off to the side. These are the things that matter! Of course the people that know me know that I love to have fun and that will never change.... this is just following me growing within the next couple of years from a kid to a (somewhat) of an adult! Sooo... here it goes.... enjoy.... THIS SHOULD BE FUN!!! Real I come! :)
