sing for the years.

Fearing unknown and the mysteries of life, God asks us to step into the fog, and go forward with faith. It's sad to say goodbye to many loved ones, so uncertain what the future will hold. But God has a plan for me and I'm headed into this dark and scary world to preach His gospel and defend his faith. 

After my mission, I don't plan to keep up this blog. It's time to start a new chapter in my life. This blog has so many memories of so many petty experiences in my life-- memories that will mean little as I begin my new adventures. This blog also shared some of my deepest feelings and emotions throughout my high school experiences and into my first year of college. The song lyrics, the pictures, the drama-- it all meant something to me then, and I'm glad I can remember it through my blog. 

So thanks to the 4 people who read it throughout the years and sharing your petty deep thoughts throughout the years with me and the world wide web. Maybe one day I'll create a blog as hilarious as Meg Morley Walter's or as inspiring as Nie Nie's. Until then, catch ya on the flip side. 

Thanks for the memories.

paint with all the colors

Nothing I can think of that's more fun than throwing chalk all over each other with my favorite people, then jumping in the river to clean it all off. College is the best thing ever. 44 more days until I say goodbye to it and this all becomes a memory.

 Life is unreal.

a long road to wisdom

Reminiscing about the times when a football game or a homework assignment or a Saturday night meant everything to me. Looking back at all those people who taught me lessons and laughed with me. Most of us have parted now to spread good news across the world. Cleveland is 96 days away. Pretty soon, all of now will be but a memory.

Growing up is sort of unreal.

it takes a boy to live

What will be your Space Jam? 
Whatever it is, make it awesome.

anything but typical

There wasn't anything paricular about them.

But together they decided that this was happiness.

what happened to thinking that the world was flat?

Suddenly the world is a much bigger place than I imagined and the possibilities seem endless.
My bed is a little smaller and my dreams are growing every day.
I've never been more nervous and excited and at peace all at the same time.
Things are working out and I couldn't be happier.

keep that breathless charm

“I walked over to the hill where we used to go and sled. There were a lot of little kids there. I watched them flying. Doing jumps and having races. And I thought that all those little kids are going to grow up someday. And all of those little kids are going to do the things that we do. And they will all kiss someone someday. But for now, sledding is enough. I think it would be great if sledding were always enough, but it isn't.”
