It's been a while!

I know I've been a little MIA for a while but I thought a quick update was in order. I am nearly halfway through my senior year and it has been so busy. I have applied to college! What? I cannot believe that it's already time for that. I just feel like I knew this would happen someday but I didn't feel like it would come so quickly! I applied to SUU, Snow College, BYU Idaho, UVU, and Utah State. In all honesty I think it will come down to SUU or Utah State. I have heard nothing but fantastic things about both of them. I have decided that rather than becoming a Journalist I want to be an Accountant. Quite a leap. I have discovered a new love for math and accounting. Weird. I know. I'm pretty nervous about starting this whole new chapter but I am beyond excited as well.
Aside from the college stuff, I have been working at Target since June and I absolutely love it. It is a great job and I work with great people. I have learned a bit about money management and real life. Who knew $200 dollars could go so fast? Or where it went? I love the people I work with and encounter every day. It's so fun to meet new people and just a get a little glimpse of their lives.
All-in-All this has been a wonderful year. As sad as I am to know this is my last Christmas living at home, I am so grateful for my parents and my siblings for making it such a joy. My parents are an amazing support and it is so amazing to have them to talk to. They push me to try things I would never have dared try and it has been such a blessing. I am grateful that even when I move away my family will be here when I come home and that I can always call.

Especially at this time of year I am especially grateful for my Savior as well. His life is an incredible example and his sacrifice is a blessing. I am grateful to know him and to be able to involve him in the hard decisions ahead of me, and above all I am grateful for the gospel and the foundation it gives me for the future. Merry Christmas!
