My first Hello!

Hello uhm online world! I doubt that greeting is necessary because I don't expect anyone will read this (but on the off chance someone is reading I want to be inviting). But this blog is more for myself than anything else so I am perfectly okay with that.  I needed some way to record my thoughts and experiences and online seemed appropriate since I spend so much of my time online anyway (mostly because I am a college student and it has absolutely NOTHING to do with the fact that I am a shopaholic).

 Because this is my first entry I guess it would make sense to sum up my life to this point.  At this point if I did have a reader that last sentence probably sent them as far from this page as they could go haha but I promise I will make it as entertaining as possible! ...Mostly for my own enjoyment.  I am a freshman attending Brigham Young University. I will soon be leaving for a year and a half mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints! ahh CRAZY!  I have a wonderful family who I love dearly: two excellent parents, an older sister, a younger sister, and two of the coolest, funniest little brothers that ever lived.  My family means everything to me. I also have some of the best friends EVER! I suppose that is why college has been so hard... I miss being around the people that really light up my life and give me reasons to keep going everyday.  Don't get me wrong, I have met some really wonderful people at BYU... but there is nothing like comfort, and that is what I really miss.

I LOVE the sun and the warmth and the summer.  I'm from Oregon so I do also love a good rainy, foggy fall day that make you feel like it's okay to sit on the couch and read a good book or watch movies all day long.  I always think that I can't wait to get out of there but the second I leave home I crave big tall evergreens and wet gray skies to wrap me up and take me back.  I love nail polish, fuzzy socks, chapstick, flowers, Hunter boots, sweaters, reading, shopping, my cute "boyfriend",  learning, blankets, packages, the color pink, underwear, pretty much all things girly and cuddling.  I'm generally a very happy person and I like to think I could take on the world... but I just talk big. Here goes my little blog/journal experiment... Enjoy!
