Summer Life

Summer, the time during the year that you have a break from school and time to relax and get everything ready for the next year. This summer I'm staying in Canton, because the DeGraw's are just cool like that. But yes, I am still alive...

Elder Price:
Ever since I was a child I tried to be the best
So, what happened?
My family and friends all said I was blessed
So, what happened?
It was supposed to be all so exciting to be teaching of Christ 'cross the sea,
But, I allowed my faith to be shaken.
Oh, what's the matter with me?
"I believe" From Book of Mormon Musical

Blogging+school= not good

Sorry, I haven't blogged much. College is hectic.... changing majors+honors+sorority events+boyfriend= VERY crazy schedule.
  • I do thank heavenly father for everything that he enables me to do.
  • And I love my Tri-Sigma sisters as well, living in the house has been a blessing.
  • Spending 9 months with an amazing man, who I can have toilet paper fights and dance with.
  • Musicals... keeps me sane..'nough said
  • DU boys, they're like my brothers.
  • The DeGraw's, who are my family.

Temples


Something I can't wait personally to do, is go to the temple in Navaoo. I watched a video a on pictures of temples. Then I burst into tears while watching the video. Because of these inspiriting images, I want to do temple work as soon as possible. I know I've got some family I know I'd like to preform baptisms for the dead. A couple years ago, I had an aunt who passes away and she had disorder which kept her in a wheelchair and as far I knew she couldn't make an actual sentence. My aunt, kinda inspired me to do baptisms for the dead. And, I don't know if she was introduce to the gospel and I want her to get to paradise.

Dreams

Dreams, we've all had them; like being the president, ballerina, doctor, lawyer, whatever. How many people actually became what they dreamed of becoming? A very very small percentage. Personally when I was probably in middle school and early high school, I wanted to be a hairstylist or an work on dig sites in Egypt. Well the first one kinda sorta came true, cause I cut people's hair. But those dreams are something we need to hang on to, like blanket. Hopefully with my business degree within marketing, I can hopefully work for a major salon chain to do their marketing or within the arts because it was always something that was in my life and will always be.
