Have I told you lately...


It has definitely been a long time since I last blogged. I really am sorry about that. It isn't because I haven't had anything to say. Actually, it is the opposite. I feel like there is too much to say and I can't do it all justice.

Well...that's a part of it. I also worry about saying too much...but I'm not even going to think about that part of things.

Anyway. It has been pretty crazy lately. I have really been focusing on school. I am still having a hard time motivating myself to stay on task, but I've decided that it is more important to me to graduate with great grades than it is for me to be the social phenomenon we all know I have the capacity to be. It is really hard for me because the more involved I get with school, the more it seems that people pull away from me. For someone that thrives on social increases how lonely I have been feeling.

But, it's worth it, right? I mean...once I have my degree--I'll be able to fulfill all my dreams, won't I?

Who knows.

Sorry to be so depressed. I should be happy. It's Mother's Day.

Let me tell you a few things about some of my favorite women.

First is my Mom. I don't know anyone like my mom. She is such an awesome person. Seriously. Not only is she one of the smartest people I know, but she is also funny, bubbly, and overall just a great person. She sacrifices everything for the people she loves, and is THE example to me of what real strength is.

Next are my grandmas Nani and Phyllis.

My grandma Nani died a while ago. However, I was able to spend a lot of time with her before she died. Everyone loved my grandma Nani. She was always smiling and always serving others. She taught me the true value of serving those you love with no thought of yourself.

My grandma Phyllis is freaking awesome! :) I never really had the opportunity to get to know her as a kid, but we have become best friends in the last couple years. I tell my Gma Phyl everything, and she is always so patient with me. She is also an amazing example to me of service, independence, and finding the good in life. She always gives me awesome fact, she was the one that convinced me to go back to school. Anyway, I love her and I'm so glad that I have been able to develop a friendship with her.

Last is my great-grandma Ione. My great-grandma is such a cute lady. She is so sweet and kind. She is never judgmental, and never has a negative thing to say about anyone. She used to be the president of the international organization, known as the Rebeccas. She has a lot of really awesome stories from her travels with that group, and also just her normal life. :)

Anyway. I am so grateful for all the amazing women in my life that help me to become better. I hope eventually I will be able to have daughters of my own so that I can pass the tradition of amazingness on down the line. :)

Anyway. I hope you are are doing well. I'll try to be more regular with my blogging. :)
