Final Analysis

 
This quote from Mother Teresa has helped me get through the past couple of years.
She was a wise woman.
 
People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered. Forgive them anyway
            If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives.  Be kind anyway.
            If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies.  Succeed anyway.
           If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you.  Be honest and sincere anyway.
            What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight.  Create anyway.
            If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous.  Be happy anyway.
            The good you do today, will often be forgotten.  Do good anyway.
         Give the best you have, and it will never be enough.  Give your best anyway.
         In the final analysis, it is between you and God.  It was never between you and them anyway.

Baby Steps....




The past couple of weeks have been pretty hectic...and it's only gonna get worse as the semester comes to an end. I  just need to take things one small step at a time and hope for the best. I know it'll work out eventually.

 Graduation is basically a month away!! I can't believe it! This pass week I've been a BYU/UT-hater, so I'm going make a list of the things I love about BYU.
1. Great people: from my professors to my best friends, people at BYU are for the most part  good examples and great to be around.
2. School Spirit: Go Cougs!! 
3. Great environment: clean campus, friendly people
4.  Nursing Program: I loved learning the Healer's Art and mixing secular knowledge with spirituality
5. Devotionals: I have learned many things I want to apply in my life
6. Mountains: Although they are not green like the ones in HI, the mountains in UT are still pretty to look at
7. FOOD: Bombay House, Shoga, Guru's, Zupas, Cafe Rio...the list goes on and on
8. Professors: I've seriously have had some of the most knowledgeable and humble professors at BYU. 
9. Friends: I have made some really good friends I hope to keep in touch with forever
10. Hair: squirrel girl, bump-its, pineapples, slut humps. Hair at BYU defies gravity. BYU girls have never ceased to amaze me.

Once upon a time....


Amy and I went to see the Princess and the Frog
It was magical 
Someday I will have my happily ever after : ) 


This movie was pretty good too!
Amy and I want to move to Ireland...
And meet hot Irish men
Someday...

The good old days....

Lately, I've been wishing that I could be a kid again
Free of major responsibility and not concerned much about the future
Right now everything is up in the air....
I need to make decisions, but I didn't think it would be so hard
or that I would be so torn about doing what I want to do and what others want me to do
ultimately, it will be my decision...should I take a chance, or do what is expected? 
Growing up is harder than I thought it would be...
I know things will work out like they are supposed to
Opportunities will come my way and things will work out 
I'll figure things out

March On...

It's amazing how time flies....52 days til Graduation!  
I can't believe it's already March!
Cap and gown have already been ordered!
Hopefully spring comes soon!
Things are still pretty busy, but manageable as always...
My future is still uncertain, hopefully I'll  figure things out soonish
xoxo,

"I must learn to love the fool in me--the one who feels too much, talks too much, takes too many chances, wins sometimes and loses often, lacks self-control, loves and hates, hurts and gets hurt, promises and breaks promises, laughs and cries. It alone protects me against that utterly self-controlled, masterful tyrant whom I also harbor and who would rob me of human aliveness, humility, and dignity but for my fool." -- Theodore I. Rubin, MD
