life's an awkward journey we all have to go through, so we might as well entertain others as we do it!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I hope you've all had a wonderful day of Irish celebrations. :) Even though St. Patrick was originally from Scotland... I love this holiday! I'm terribly sorry for not posting consistently with the challenge -- end of term is super stressful! I'll catch up on it this week though hopefully.

May the luck o' the Irish be with you!

Good Day

You know those times when you're driving down the street and you're stopped in a long line of traffic at the light? Well, you just so happen to be in no hurry to go anywhere and you feel super confident and happy after your job interview you just went through, and so you're smiling and loving the wonderful sixty degree weather you're having today. Well, a car needs to pull into a parking lot, and no one is willing to stop for them, so you're like 'hey, I'm not going anywhere in a hurry,' so you wave the car through and wait for the cars next to you to stop for this car that just wants to park already.

Yeah, you feel pretty good that you helped that car out instead of making them wait for a long line of traffic full of cars with places they think they need to hurry to. You're happy you got to help them out and enjoy life in the moment. 

Helping people out is a pretty great feeling. I mean, you both win. What better feeling could there be?

Favorite childhood memories:

1--A home video of me telling my dad about how I went to the mall with my aunt Molly and sprayed some JELLO perfume in my mouth. Apparently it wasn't very good. I also got my Little Mermaid piggy bank and was enjoying my delicious french fries and chicken nuggets -- with a lot of ketchup OF COURSE.

2--Going out to eat at "vrick" oven (Brick Oven) with my family. Definitely still a favorite.

3--Helping give my aunt Molly shots -- she is also a Diabetic.

4--The Wasatch Family Fall Festival in elementary school every year. And the dance festival at the end of the year.

5--My purple party for my ninth birthday. Everything purple, Lizzie McGuire movies and CDs, and all around fun with my favorite friends.

6--Reading and hanging out with my best friend Angela. One summer before fifth grade we walked around the neighborhood with matching t shirts, a CD player, and a cooler full of popsicles and ice cream bars to sell. I don't even remember how much money we made, but it was a ton of fun.

7--Running around bare foot in the summer, swimming, being outdoors and just doing a lot of crazy stuff that only kids can pull off.

8--Laughing. I've always loved to laugh.


I had a pretty great childhood.

What Makes You Happy?

Well. This is a very good question. I'm not quite sure how to answer it.

I think the things that make me happy are good books, beautiful writing, poetry, movies, art. Definitely people. I love looking at the lives of others and sharing in that. I love being around other people (especially the cool ones with unique life stories). I love being around my friends because they make me happy. I love being around my family (for the most part) because they make me happy. I love Irish Step Dancing because it makes me happy. I couldn't live without any of these things. I love books. I love music. I love dancing.

What do all of these things have in common?


Life makes me happy.
