How did it happen?


I know that there are some of my friends who will be upset when I say it, but for me...

THIS IS THE LAST WEEK OF SCHOOL!


As exciting as that is, how did it happen?

This year has flown by. Seriously! This has been a "kick the bird out of the nest, now it's off and flying, but hey...where did it go" kind of year.

I like that the year was filled with so many great things and neat experiences. But man, if time keeps flying by in this "crazy-busy" way (I'm quoting my blog stalker, Mary!) than there will be NO amount of magic that my friend and awesome hairdresser, Rochelle, can use to fix the color of my hair.

So...I'll have time away from school, but how do I make the most of it? After all, summertime flies even faster than school time!

I have several things to do professionally that will help me in my job (plus, I really don't know how to actually "have the summer off" and none of my friends do, either!)...and there are always things around the house that HAVE to get done now because they don't get done in the fall... but I want to enjoy the time available to me this summer.

I want to savor the time. I want to appreciate the time. I don't want to suddenly look at the calendar, realize it's back to school and think.... "what the" (see previous post for more details on this phrase).

It's not easy for me to slow down. I feel like I should always be busy. So any suggestions? All are appreciated!

Thoughts for Today...

  1. Accept that some days you're the pigeon and some days you're the statue.

  2. Always keep your words soft and sweet just in case you have to eat them.

  3. Always read stuff that will make you look good if you die in the middle of it.

  4. Drive carefully. It's not only cars that can be recalled by their maker.

  5. If you can't be kind, at least have the decency to be vague.

  6. It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply be kind to others.

  7. Never put both feet in your mouth at the same time because then you won't have a leg to stand on.

  8. Nobody cares if you can't dance well. Just get up and dance.

  9. When everything's coming your way, you're in the wrong lane.

  10. Birthdays are good for you: the more you have, the longer you live.

  11. You may be only one person in the world, but you may also be the world to one person.

  12. Some mistakes are too much fun to only make once.

  13. We could learn a lot from crayons... Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull. Some have weird names, and all are different colors, but they all have to live in the same box.

  14. A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour.

  15. Every moment matters so... ENJOY TODAY!

What up!

(I just wanted to use that phrase!)

Seriously, I have nothing to post (yet) but I will (soon).

After all, I had the awesome opportunity to take a long weekend and go to Utah for BYU Women's Conference with my sis and my parentals (aka: the mom and the dad) and it ROCKED (minus the "run" back to campus from Brick Oven, eh sis!).

So, I promise to share (even if you don't want me to!). But first I have to go through the pictures. For some strange reason, my memory card is full. Hum... how'd that happen!
