Just a little short something today.

I just want to say how blessed I feel to live in this time.
The biggest problem I have is not having a good air conditioner in my home!
And we still have fans! Hah.

I'm so happy I have great friends and family who love me.
What a happy life I live.

First day of work is tomorrow. (:
I'm excited and nervous.
Those two feelings tend to be paired up a lot. Hah.

Well.. good Sunday.
Went to church with my friends and sisters, then had dinner with my family and with two friends from church.
We had good conversations while eating stake, baked potatoes, cauliflower, and carrots.
And we had some good laughs.
I like to laugh.

Wrote a good friend on a mission an email.
Hope I get a reply.

Ready for a new week, to bring good times. We're going to Sunriver!
Well.. good day. (:

SPF 50.

This might be my last Saturday that I'm able to sleep in really late and just lounge around the house.
How sad is that??
But kinda not, cause that means I get to be productive and not just hit the refresh button over and over on Facebook, and I will actually know what to do with my time. Plus, since I'll probably be working on Saturdays, that means racking in the dough! Woohoo!

So today has been a good day. Like I said, I slept in real late, and did my normal Facebook, Youtube, and Instagram browsing while still lounging in my bed. Then I got up, had a few bowls of delicious Honey Bunches of Oats cereal with almonds. Yum.

And a good productive part of my day was when I was able to go outside with my mom and dad, and plant some beautiful petunias in our backyard. So I lathered up with some of that good SPF 50, put my cap on, and went out in the beating sun to make some beauty.

So my mom laid out all the flowers where she wanted them.

Then with my gloves and little shovel, I dug a little hole, and placed them all in, being sure to cover them up with the surrounding dirt.

And voila! My work is done, and you've got beautiful flowers.
I even had this spiffy little stool to sit on!

And whenever I look out our windows to the backyard, or go outside to read, I can see them there and know a good afternoon of hard work has not gone to waste. (:

Now I know how much work my mom goes through each year to ensure we have a beautiful view of flowers in our yards. It was actual work! But satisfying nonetheless.

So.. that was the big part of my day. Of course I did get a yummy bagel sandwich with mayo, ham, tomatoes, avocado, and sprouts afterwards! Um.. Yum!

So to finish off this nice Saturday, I will be going to the movie in the park with my friends where we will play on the playground, then enjoy the awesome movie entitled The Amazing Spiderman. Me gusta Andrew Garfield!

Overall, a perdy darn good day. It's nice to take some time with family and create beauty around us.
To take the time to stop and smell the roses. Or... petunias. (:

New look, new theme, new me.

So basically, soon my life is about to take a big leap forward.
Things are happening, and I think it's time to document it.

So.. In this past month, a few changes have taken place.

1. Graduated from stinkin high school! (Believe it or not, that was an actual achievement.)

2. Registered for college classes! That's right everybody, it's official now.

3. Got my first job! Heck to the yes! And it's not fast food, bonus.

Basically three big important steps in starting my future. Not scary at all.. ha.. ha.
But I'm really excited, and nervous.

Thus, with so many life changes, I felt it fitting to change a couple other things too.
That being, this blog. Of course, if this is you're first time on here, you wouldn't really know that, would you?
Well.. it looks awesome and more colorful, and I like it. (:

I also felt, maybe I could attempt to change the theme of this blog too.
But I haven't really pinned down anything, so you'll just have to wait and see.
Maybe the theme will be multiple topics.
I'm thinking.. music, cooking, photography, deep reflections, basically life. We'll see where my thoughts take me. (:

So, with all these changes, an update on the Sydney department is also in store.
Not changing myself literally, but just beginning to learn more about who I actually am.
As I'm getting ready to start my new job, and go to college, I have to figure out who I really want to be.
I can start completely new! Blank sheet of paper.
So let's get coloring like madmen!
