i'm not dead, i promise.

i don't even know where i have been the last month and a half. to be honest, my desires to write diminished rather quickly and unexpectedly. to say i've been extremely busy would be an understatement. between work, school, and my rapidly changing family i have not had a chance to breathe until recently. but enough's enough, here's the low down..

  i passed my astronomy class. it was a miracle. 

christmas eve dinner, best meal ever. 

christmas jammies. she was pissed they had sharks. 

i was definitely spoiled christmas morning. 

my best friend came home from his mission. best day ever. 

i dyed my hairs (RED) on thursday. i'm a ginger. picture coming soon. 

other non picture worthy events:
i've been fighting a cold for like a month now. 
my brother got married (we have pictures just not available)
i started a new semester, academic probation free i might add. thank goodness. 
i've been spending much time with the previous best friend mentioned above. 
my grandfather fell and broke his hip and lost his mind while doing it. he's (almost) back to normal though.

twenty years old.

i turned twenty years old on wednesday. i am no longer a teen but i've been a legal adult since i turned eighteen two years ago. it's quite the confusing time if you ask me. 

as always, i love my birthday more than a normal amount. i anticipated it for weeks and convinced my mother to give me my iPhone a week and a half early. (i am in love with my phone) i received numerous birthday texts, calls, facebook messages and cards, to all who wished me a happy day i say thank you. i was given a balloon from my most fabulous coworkers and had a date with my most favorite people-my mom and sister. it was quiet and low key, i wouldn't have had it any other way. the best friend and i are celebrating tomorrow with a trip to salt lake. it's nice that our birthdays are five days apart. 

nineteen was a hard hard year. i leaned on my faith more so than ever before and i learned more about myself than i think i have in a long time. i also grew more this year than ever before. i really had to take a step forward and leave my past behind me. i am looking forward to what the year twenty brings me. maybe it will be love or perhaps it will a step forward in my career and maybe it will be both. i don't know. and that is the beauty of a birthday. it's a chance to start over and start fresh. it's a chance to take everything that you learned a year younger and use it to become a better person each and every day. i'm grateful nineteen was a hard year because it made me who i am as a twenty year old. here's to a year older and the adventures it awaits.
