I think this is going to be a summer of changes, in a completely different way that summer 08, but just as epic. I'm going to really try and not be home except to sleep and eat, and spend as much time as i can out side, in the library, and working out. I need to make summer 09 count ever more than summer 08.
I THINK WE SHOULD START TAKING SUGGESTING FOR A TAG-LINE FOR SUMMER 09
I think it should be "choose your own adventure" like Iowa state, and those games. That seems to fit.
Summer 08: Make it count.
Fall 08: It was great, but it could have been epic.
It was actually pretty epic, well a few days were at least.
Summer 09: ???
Here are my GOALS for summer 09:
Get my grades up: I would really love to get a 4.0, but since I've never done that in my life, i will set a 3.5 as acceptable, but bottom of the barrel.
Go to Devotional every week: I've learned, especially lately, that if you put in even the tiniest bit of effort, the lord will make it rain (blessing wise) on you. Example: I went to institute for the first time in a few weeks this past week, and on the way home I really wanted some ho chocolate. I went to Kwik Trip and tried to get it but the machine was not working. Because I "had trouble with the machine" the girl behind the counter gave it to me for free. Coincidence? I don't believe in Coincidences.
Don't skip any classes: Seriously, just go skate after class. It's like 2 hours wait.
Don't skip church, or even "just go to sacrament" unless I'm deathly Ill: Nuff' said.
Stop sipping haterade: This has been one of my goals for about a year, but its HARD. Especially when people I'm around a lot complain and talk negatively about people they know. I never want to call them on it because I hate the feeling when someone calls you out... I'm going to try really hard this summer though, and friends, please keep your haterade off me.
Write a poem/song/piece a week
Always have an art project
Be one of those people that is ALWAYS reading a book
Here are the PLAGUES of summer 09:
Skipping Class, Devotional, Church, Relief Society, Prayer
Wasting energy, tears, and time on people that aren't worth it
Putting myself first
I am so excited for summer 09. I am excited to be back in La Jolla, I am excited to be back with Amy and Beki and Makana. I am excited to be living with Kaitlin. I am excited about super sketch, half baked plans of going to California, to Arizona to visit Monica, and to Portland to see Maria. I am excited for my classes--hopping I get the ones i want. I am excited to see what this summer holds for me. I think the thing i am most excited for though, is to continue to see how missionary life changes Max, Dallin, and Taylor.
