An older, more knowledgeable you.

I've spent the last hour or so looking at student loans with my mom and talking about life, it sort of inspired me to write this. I really could of used something like this when I was younger. Hope you are all having a good day/night. :)

Dear Amanda,

You're 15 now, 16 will come soon enough. Stop worrying about boys so much sweetie, trust me, most of them, aren't worth your time. A couple years from now, when you look back at this time in your life, you'll see what I mean. Be single for now, be 15, have fun. Boys will come and go, sometimes your heart will break, but not for long, and yeah, you will break a heart or two yourself, and that's growing up girl, its life, but please, do me a favor and don't worry about this right now, you're so young. When you graduate and go on with your life, nobody will care if you dated the popular boy.

So your "bff" hates you, she won't forever, friends fight, and not all friends stick around, but every friend that comes in to your life is a blessing so hold on to them while you can. A few of your friends will love you forever, as time goes on, it will become increasingly clear to you who these people are.

Don't worry so much about your parents, I know it's hard, but I promise you there is nothing you can do. People fall out of love with each other, and if they get divorced, stay strong, have faith in God, and cry if you need to. Everything happens for a reason, you're strong, you'll be ok.

Most importantly, love yourself. Be your own best friend, and trust yourself. This is probably the best advice I can give you. It's ok if you don't understand your feelings all the time. You are still growing, and becoming the person you're supposed to be. Realize that you will never be perfect, all you can do is try to be the best version of yourself. Everything happens for a reason, and life is hard sometimes, but it's so beautiful, and you have so much to be thankful for!

An older, more knowledgeable you.

Living, Breathing, and Following Oprah?

Ok so my goal to get in shape was delayed a bit, because I was sick last week. I did continue to watch what I was eating, but I couldn't motivate myself to run or anything. I did lose...3 pounds. Not a lot, but a small victory.

So I started following a new blog today, check this out.

I thought it was pretty interesting.
Let me know what you think? I am curious as to what you guys think.

So, I have decided that I need to get in shape.
Not really to lose weight, but really, just to be a healthier person.
I started with that today, worked out for 40min or so,
had a salad for lunch, and some grilled chicken and fruit for dinner.
Doing pretty good so far, and even though it's only been one day, I'm pretty excited. Hopefully within a couple weeks I will start seeing some results.

....Today has been mostly un-eventful.
I found out one of my guy friends has made the decision to serve his country and become a marine. I really am happy for him, but at the same time, I don't want him to go, I'm scared of what could happen to him in the future. :(

Let's see....what else......
I go back to school on the 20th, yay college!
Because of the conditions on my scholarship, I have to at least keep up a 3.5 grade average, so that is sorta scary, I really can't afford to lose it. I'm blessed in that way though, school always came pretty easy for me, except for math, that's my c subject. Numbers are stupid.

Oh! This is random, but kind of funny, I was talking to someone who lives in Idaho tonight, a distant cousin of mine actually, but anyways we talked about music, and he's a big 30h!3 fan, and had no idea they were from Colorado. It made me laugh, he thinks I am the coolest person alive now, just because I live in Denver. I thought everyone knew they were from here?

Well, what is new in your life?
Give me all the details. :)

Something I wrote in like, maybe my freshman year of high-school for a story I had to write. It's sorta old, so it's not great, but I don't think it's terrible.
Have a good day. :)

Promise me, you will love me forever, regaurdless of my mistakes.

Love me even though I'm always changing my mind.

Love me, even though sometimes I cry for no reason and sometimes I say ugly, and terrible things.

Love me, even though sometimes I am selfish.

Love me, even when I lie.

Love me, even though I don't always think your jokes are funny.

Love me, even though I can't stop smoking.

Love me, even when it's hard to, because I promise to love you, always.

I promise to be your rock, your foundation. I promise to love you, even when you are being a pain in the ass. I promise to love you, even when you leave the toilet seat up, and when you forget to put the lid back on the toothpaste. I promise to love you when we fight, and I promise to forgive you. I promise to love you even if you forget it's Valentines Day, and I promise to love love love you, with everything that I am, because as cliche as it is, you complete me. Sometimes I think we are destroying each other, but I don't want anything else. There isn't anyone else in this world who would put up with me, and I know that, and you know nobody else could put up with your mess, so please, Promise me?
