the past four years

Deep breath. Take it all in. Remember, these moments are precious seconds you'll never get back.
You're lucky to be here. Your experiences are so special and unique. They have made you strong and built you into the independent woman you are today.

These past four years have been some of the most challenging, most life changing, and most memorable of my life.

I am truly blessed.

the swing of things

Epic weekend! We had a blast and it was a nice break from reality!

...but now I'm back and have to jump back into the swing of things...

This week is Senior Week for Gamma Phi Beta and we have lots of fun and exciting activities throughout the week! I'm cherishing every moment, because time is running out and my four years of college is coming to a close. I want to hang on to all the little moments I have left. I'm excited to graduate and move on, but it will be really hard to say goodbye.

the hours

Oh my gosh...this has been an intense week! So much to do! I'm trying to keep my head on straight and make it out alive! The best part is, it only gets crazier after this week...this week is nothing compared to the next few weeks to come.

There simple aren't enough hours in the day...

But I'm leaving tomorrow to spend the weekend with all my friends relaxing in the sunshine. With some fun activities like water skiing, wake boarding, and tubing!! It will be a well needed 'vacation'.

Not trying to be a buzz kill but I will have to bring some homework with me and try find time in the late hours of the evening to get it done....wish me luck! :)

Parker here we come!

the road not taken

The Road Not Taken
Poet: Robert Frost

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

the changes

Life changes and you have to let it change...
Because how boring would it be, if everything stayed the same…

the girls

I love every moment we get to spend together! I love being able to go through this roller coaster of life together; with tightly gripped hands, screaming at the top of our lungs! This is barely the beginning; there is so much ahead of us. The next couple years will be interesting...but everything feels better knowing I have people like you in my life.

the moment

"Live in the moment
and make it so beautiful
that it will be worth remembering"

the night

By BFehr
Denver streets
Are watching over me
And I believe there is nowhere I'd rather be

To whisper would be the loudest thing tonight
We're not going to forget this
Our hands touch and lips kiss

This isn't going anywhere, anytime soon
It will carry through until tomorrow
Where every we go, our hearts will follow

I know what your thinking
I don't want you to worry
We have nothing but time, I’m in no hurry

Everything is so safe tonight
Don't worry, we will be alright
Even if it is only for one night

the lessons learned

"I've learned that we don't have to change friends if we understand that friends change.

I've learned that no matter how good a friend is, they're going to hurt you every once in a while and you must forgive them for that.

I've learned that true friendship continues to grow, even over the longest distance. The same goes for true love.

I've learned that you can do something in an instant that will give you heartache for life.

I've learned that it's taking me a long time to become the person I want to be.

I've learned that you should always leave loved ones with loving words. It may be the last time you see them.

I've learned that you can keep going long after you can't.

I've learned that we are responsible for what we do, no matter how we feel.

I've learned that either you control your attitude or it controls you.

I've learned that regardless of how hot and steamy a relationship is at first, the passion fades and there had better be something else to take its place.

I've learned that heroes are the people who do what has to be done when it needs to be done, regardless of the consequences.

I've learned that money is a lousy way of keeping score.

I've learned that my best friend and I can do anything or nothing and have the best time.

I've learned that sometimes the people you expect to kick you when you're down, will be the ones to help you get back up.

I've learned that sometimes when I'm angry I have the right to be angry, but that doesn't give me the right to be cruel.

I've learned that just because someone doesn't love you the way you want them to doesn't mean they don't love you with all they have.

I've learned that maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you've had and what you've learned from them, and less to do with how many years you have lived.

I've learned that it isn't always enough to be forgiven by others. Sometimes you have to learn to forgive yourself.

I've learned that no matter how bad your heart is broken the world doesn't stop for your grief.

I've learned that our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are, but we are responsible for who we become.

I've learned that just because two people argue, it doesn't mean they don't love each other. And just because they don't argue, it doesn't mean they do love each other.

I've learned that you shouldn't be so eager to find out a secret. It could change your life forever.

I've learned that two people can look at the same thing and see something totally different.

I've learned that your life can be changed in a matter of hours by people who don't even know you.

I've learned that even when you think you have no more to give, when a friend cries out to you, you will find the strength to help.

I've learned that credentials on the wall do not make you a decent human being.

I've learned that the people you care about most in life are sometimes taken from you too soon

I've learned that you cannot make someone love you. All you can do is be someone who can be loved. The rest is up to them.

I've learned that no matter how much I care, some people just don't care back.

I've learned that it takes years to build up trust, and only seconds to destroy it.

I've learned that it's not what you have in your life bout who you have in your life that counts." true...
