Number 25

So this year will be my twenty fifth birthday. Turning twenty five really is just too weird. First of all I don't know for sure where I imagined myself being when I turned twenty five but I am pretty sure I could not have imagined that I would be whee I am now. So, to celebrate this monumentous occasion I have decided I need to be somewhere warm and fun....... So Orlando Florida it is... And Disney World!!! I am beyond excited! Ash! Kati, and I are going to have soooo much fun!! I can hardly wait!

The beginning of the end

This week I started my second to last semester of college! I am thrilled to be back in school full time and I cannot wait to graduate. My classes this semester are all psychology. I was very worried about them and if I could really be on school again! But it's like riding a bike and I feel like I am going to be able to get back into the swing of things. Luckily.

I had a really life changing thought today that I hope I never forget... So here it is..." Are we more familiar with being mean for sake of being mean or do we know kindness purely for kindness sake" Think about it.
