a little girl with great big plans.

So part of me wanted to write out a super long blog post about my life as of late.  But then I realized that it would end up getting too personal and I'm not very good at talking about my feelings on life with my friends let alone the blogosphere.  So I decided to get some professional help from some people you may have heard of: Taylor Swift,  Missy Higgins, James Morrison, Adele ... just to name a few.  I spilled my guts and told them everything on my mind and they kindly put my feelings to words and music.  Thank you Heavenly Father for giving these people such amazing talent.


Jar of Hearts - Christina Perri
Someone Like you - Adele
Love is Hard - James Morrison
Whole Wide World - Mindy Gledhill
Words I Couldn't Say - Rascal Flatts
Where I Stood - Missy Higgins (I swear, this song is on every playlist I ever make)
Daughters - John Mayer
Wonderful - Everclear
Mean - Taylor Swift
Never Grow Up - Taylor Swift
Enchanted - Taylor Swift
Let It Be - The Beatles

One year ago today my beautiful baby niece was born at 3 in the morning!  I still remember when my sister called to tell me she was preggers.  I screamed so loud I'm pretty sure all of Heritage Halls heard my excitement.  Even though I don't get to see her very often, our whole family has been so blessed by this beautiful little girl.  She has us all wrapped around her tiny fingers and I don't think I've ever met a human being more loved than this gorgeous girl.  So happy birthday Isabel, your Tia loves you!

Izzy Bellies at Christmas.  She was so tiny!

Today at the mall, a lady in line asked my mom what school I go to.  My mom explained that I go to school  in Utah... because I am in college.  I met her shocked look and said, "I know I don't look it, but it's the truth."  She looked at me and said in her southern accent, "Well I thought for sure you were goin' into the eighth grade or somethin."  Thanks, Lady.  Thanks.

But little does she know, not only am I no longer in middle school but in twenty-eight days I will be starting my third fall semester at BYU.  I am officially an upperclassman.  

I'm registered for seventeen credits: one spanish class, five business classes, and an on-campus internship.  On top of all that, I am going to be a peer mentor (slash TA) for a freshman student development class.

And crazy as it sounds... I can't wait to start!

I miss school.  I miss studying.  I miss the library.  I miss doing something important.  I miss challenging myself.

So, even though in twenty-eight days I will become an anti-social, all I have to say is: bring it on.

And to all my friends: We have just a few weeks left.  Once this semester starts, I will see you in December... after finals.
