It is a new year where things are definitely new for me. This is the first time in about 18-19 years that I am not in school. Graduation last semester was a wake up call that I am getting older which means it is getting closer to the day where I need to start acting like a grown up. This is extremely difficult to understand because I love how my life is. I love being able to pack my things up and head to vegas or Brasil and not have to worry about getting fired or people being mad. I know that this is going to have to stop one day, but a couple more years of it wouldn't hurt.

I am starting this new year out as a college graduate from Weber State and also a Certified Athletic Trainer. I am still trying to get all of my paperwork in to be "official" but I am still working for my dad. Some days I like it (such as payday), but most days I find myself just sitting here at the computer thinking of the past. Thinking of all of the good and bad times I had.

WNCC was a huge learning experience for me where I met amazing people that I still have friendships with today. People always ask me how I always get to go to Brasil, and this is how. All of the amazing Brasilian people that I met at WNCC give me the opportunity to visit them. All I can say is that I have never had families bring me in and treat me like their own like I have in Brasil. This last time was one of the best experiences and the pictures are good enough to make me cry and miss all of those amazing people.

As much as I enjoyed Weber State it was still nothing like WNCC and it is crazy how fast time goes by. I remember wanting to go home so bad while I was in Nebraska and as soon as I came home, I wanted to go back. Times is something that doesn't stop and that was shown to me the hard way. 6 months/one semester a lot can happen and such did as I would come home for break seeing that all the people that I used to hang out with have moved on, have started their own little families. Don't get me wrong I am very happy for them, and I wish them all the greatest, but it was definitely a hard wake up call. In the mean time, the friends in Nebraska were awesome. I will have crazy stories to tell for years and pictures and videos to back it all up.

I guess as life goes on we all learn new lessons. Time is going by so fast that some of these lessons are not easy to pick out until more time passes by. All I know is that I am a very blessed person for what I have been able to do in my life, and of the many opportunities that will come my way in the future. Many people have come in and out of my life and each of them have taught me something.

Life is too short to worry about what people may think of you. The time goes by so fast that its not worth living unhappy and full of regret.

I know I keep rambling and my grammar is totally shot to hell, but thats why it is my blog. To be able to write what I want and how I want, right? haha...I guess now that I have so much more time on my hands that I will be able to start blogging more. I find it a way to help relax me.

Happy new year
