Life doesn't slow down does it

Well, it's been awhile since I've been on here and i even have the app on my Phone!!! Crazy isn't it.
 This is finals week here at ivy tech. I took 4 classes this fall so that means lots of studying and lots of finals. Last night(Monday) i came in a took my first final and then today i have 2. My accounting finals were supposed to be 2 parts but i took both of them today.

Ben and i aren't dating anymore. After only a week of being together, I felt like i could only like him as a friend and nothing more. So i started the conversation and we both ended as friends. We both are very different people, Ben, if you ever read this, I know there's a wonderful girl out there for you somewhere.

In 538 days, I can move to Sault Ste Marie. But i have to graduate first.

Well i have to go to my next class in 20 mins, so i should probably work on school.

Remember

"I can do all things through Christ who strengths me"

My tough decision

I had a very tough decision to make today. Some of you know about it and some of you I had asked to pray about it. It's still hard to believe that I'm writing this post about this.  
    On august 16th, I got a dog named Bentlee. He is the best dog,I've ever had. But bentlee protects very well and he doesn't do well with children. My parents have decided that we must get rid of him. That he's do better on a farm without children. He'd do better with lots of room to run and play. He'd do better with a job to do. Bentlee was the first dog that I've ever lived and cared about. 


I'll update later

3 years, 3 months

I've been writing on this blog for 3 years and 3 months. I started this blog in June of 2011. And here it is, September 3rd 2014. 
  For years I had counted down to 2013. Because that's the year I was going to be done with school!! I did graduate in 2013 but I'm not done with school…yet! 
So much has changed
When I started this blog, it was a rainy day in June. I would have been 16 not quiet 17, I would have looked sorta of the same. But I was a different person. I was a girl who hadn't seen the world by herself. I wasn't a girl who had drove nor had a job that  required her to wake up at 4am most mornings. I was a girl with childish dreams, and childish expectations. 
Now I'm different. I've seen what I can do. I've seen what others have done or haven't done. I understand that you can have dreams but it's up to you and God to make those dreams happen.  When I was 16, I thought I'd get married right out of high school. To whom you ask?!? I don't know who I thought I was going to marraging but I'm glad The Lord had other ideas! 

3 years and counting!!

Do I have time?

Lately the question on my mind has been... Do I have time? Do I want to lose an hour or so of sleep so I can do that? 
    Last week I started my second year of school and my first year going for an accounting degree. I'm hoping,lord willing, to graduate from ivy tech in may of 2016. I'm taking 4 classes:accounting 101, business 101, communication 101 and personal finance. Though it's a busy life, so far I'm surviving. 
On top of school, I'm also working around 36 hours a week, depending on shift she(sandra) has me work. 
Tonight we watched moms night out(2014) movie. I realized that I don't blog as much as I used too. So I looked up on the App Store and guess what?!?!? They have a blogger app!!! So here I am, blogging off of my phone. While laying in bed, getting ready to go to sleep so I can wake up at 4:15 tomorrow to be at work @5! 

My life is sooo busy! But I'm loving it(now I sound like the mcdonalds commercial!) 

See ya all
Cowboysgal! ;) I'll be back soon!

Can it get any busier?

Life is very busy right now. Let me tell you all that has happened......:)

In May, I finished my second semester of college, decided on a degree (accounting), Drove 6 hours by my self to Cleveland to see my BEST friend for the weekend, and started going to work on Fridays and Saturdays at 4 am!! May was nice. I learn that i had enough courage to tell a boy that i liked him and i also learn that God sometimes says NO for us so that later on we don't go "why in the world did i do that?".

In June, My Cousin came home. He was stationed over seas for over a year and now he's back in the states! They also came to. While they were here, we went to Holiday world in Santa Claus, Indiana. If you never been, you NEED to go! It's the best place in the world. Free pop, Free sunscreen, wonderful rides and a water park! On June 17th, I went with them back down to Virginia beach. i stayed at their house for 2 weeks and came back on my 20th birthday!!!
 On June 2nd, I had to come home, :( I didn't want to. Coming home meant going back to work (My wonderful boss let me have those 2 weeks off). and in turn with coming back home, I have to start training. Bradley, who normally came in at 5 on Saturdays, quit in June so we've had to replace him. Last Saturday which was July 5th, I just trained 1 person and i felt like a stood around all day. Then today i trained 2 people and i REALLY felt like i stood around! :) oh well, Sandra knows how i feel and she says i'm not just standing around.
This past Monday, My little sister Emma and i went Blueberry picking. We picked 24lbs in an hour and 15 mins! That was WAY more than we planned on picking.
This coming week  i have to go in at 4am 3 days instead of 2 days. So that's going to be challenging, but Sandra knows i can do it,

Busy life,

I have such a busy life!!!!! I haven't wrote on this blog since FEBRUARY!
 In Feb, I started my second semester of college at Ivy Tech. I'm just taking an English class. In Feb, I also applied for  The Disney Internship. But got turned down, Such a bummer.
   In March, I took a week off from work (spring break for school) and went to Virginia Beach. While i was there, I got an IPhone! I had so much fun in Virginia. My cousin (who's in the navy) will be coming home from Bahrain in June!!!!!!!!!!!
  April, such a big month..... I gained 2 new jobs!!! I work a Video Store once a week.  I'm also babysitting for a year old and a 2 month old. So it's been a really busy month. And it isn't over yet!!!\
 I'm actually at the Video store right now, and it's really slow compared to the bakery.
  With it being Easter weekend this week, at the bakery we're going to be very busy!! I work 5-1 on Friday and 5-1 on Saturday! So busy!

Got to go!

Missing Peru.

I really missing Peru. It's been so hard the last couple of days. I really want to go back and i want to stay longer.
 My first plan was to wait 3 years(2017) and go back. That would give me enough time to get enough money to go back. But Today we skyped with the Stilwells at church. It made me decide.
I can home and started looking up plane tickets. I'm thinking about going back next year. Maybe or maybe not.
Talk to you later

Indiana doesn't want me to leave does it?! :)

Hey, I'm sorry It's been 16 days since i blogged! Oops!
    Well on Jan 5th, Good old Indiana had a snowstorm that cancelled all the planes and left us with 12 inches of snow. Yep you read that right 12 inches. That would have been fine but it's what happened the NEXT day that caused problems.
  At 6:45 am on Jan 6th, 2014, It was -32 outside, our light went out. Yep, we didn't have lights from 6:45 am to 8:56 pm. It was a long cold day. We also had had high winds that night so we have really high drifts and Indiana was under an state of emergency, Well that would have been fine, if i didn't have somewhere to go.  ON Tuesday Jan 7th at 6:10 pm, i was supposed to fly out of Indy to go to Peru, south America.
    When i woke up Tuesday morning, i got on facebook to check if the Missionary's wife had sent me a message. She had. She told me that tho most of the flights are being cancelled mine was not cancelled. So my Father and I left at 10 after 12 to go to the airport. It only took us 2 1/2 hours instead of the normally 1 and 20 mins. But the roads were really bad. At 3:30, I checked my two bags in with one weighing over the 50lbs but the really nice lady just let it pass.
 At 4:15, I said goodbye to my father and Went through security. It was very easy. I didn't even have to take my laptop out or my bag of liquids. By then we knew my plane had been delayed from 6:10 to 6:45. still enough time to make my 11:55 Miami to Lima flight.
   I called Molly(the missionary's wife) before i boarded the plane in Indy. and I flew out!!!!


I landed here in Lima around 5:30 on Jan 8th. Steve and their oldest Daughter Lili came down to pick me up also there was another missionary who came in a couple of hours ahead of me, named Mr. Kenny.
  After they picked us up, we had to go the 8 hour drive up to their house in Huaraz. So I made it here safe and sound.
  I'll try to update late on about the rest of my trip!

Stupid Indiana weather

O I normally love snow. It's so pretty and last year we really didn't have that much snow. But this year.....
It was snowed when I'd rather it didn't!! I leave in Three days and tomorrow we are supposed to get anywhere from 4 inches to 12 inches! But knowing Indiana weather, we probably won't get that much but the temps on Tuesday the high is -5 and the low is -20! so i really hope my plane doesn't get cancelled or delayed! Please pray. Also if you have any tips about plane's beening delayed or cancelled please let me know
