Hello!

Happy November everyone! I thought I would do a quick blog post before all the big events that are coming up in the next two months.

A little update...
1. School. Always school first these days. I am reading or writing all the time. With my three literature classes, my one teaching literature class, and my fiction writing class, I swear I always either have my computer (to write essays and stories) or a book that I need to read attached to my hip. Next semester I get to apply to the teaching program, which means that I will have a year and a half left, including student teaching, after next semester. I am SUPER excited about it. Even with my classes this semester, I feel like I am getting closer and closer to doing what I want to do. I feel so fortunate that I have the opportunity to get an education and chase the dreams that I have had since I was little. So I am feeling really good about that.

2. Friends are fabulous. When I graduated from high school I was really sad at first because I thought that my world was suddenly going to get very small; I thought I would lose all of the friends that I had been so close to during high school. I've found that it is actually quite the opposite. I still have the wonderful friends from high school and also have met the cutest girls up here in Logan. I am pretty lucky.

3. Brookie is getting married in ONE WEEK!! Ah. I can't believe it. I'm so excited. I am sure my blog will explode with photos from the big day, so stay tuned.

4. Zach and Mackenzie's little girl is due here in the next couple of weeks. So so exciting. I can't wait to be an aunt and to absolutely spoil the little love.

I guess the common theme with all of those little updates is excitement. I am very excited with the course that life is taking me on. It's exciting growing up :)
