You're gonna miss me when I'm gone...

       Hiya! This blog is going to be for friends, family, and anyone else who enjoys reading the sarcastic comments of an awkward 17-year-old who is attending Brigham Young University. I hope you enjoy reading about my failures as much as my successes, because I will probably prove that it's possible to make stupid mistakes even without alcohol (BYU is the no. 1 most sober campus). Anyway, the time is about to come for me to move out and leave behind my family, best friends, and pretty much everything I've known for the past six years. No big deal.
        I can say with one hundred percent certainty that in 9 days I will not miss my mom's random singing or my dad's jokes. I definitely am not going to miss laughing til I cry with my siblings or late night Steak n' Shake runs with my squad. I will not miss my high school or my job or any of the other things that I am used to seeing on a daily basis.

(Okay I'll admit, that entire paragraph was a lie.)

      Despite the fact that I'd love to pretend I have no feelings, I really am going to miss everyone and everything that I love here in Ohio. I have to admit that it's going to be really hard to move away (1,748 miles to be exact). But that's not a bad thing. I'm so grateful for the people and experiences I've had in my life because they're truly what made me my quirky, ambitious self. As a Pinterest addict, it would be impossible to not live by a quote I see on there so frequently--"Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened." Yes it's ridiculously cheesy, I know, but it's still good advice.
       I am going to my dream school. I can remember being on the campus at seven years old and saying "This is where I'm gonna go." Well now I've made it, I've accomplished that life-long goal. So when I leave Ohio I will take all the wonderful memories with me, and go after my dreams.

Thanks for reading and go Cougars!
