I have been challenged by Brady, Leah, and Molly to not use Facebook, Tumblr, or Twitter until Monday after OT. If you see me on any of the above, please comment “Caught!” on this status so my challengers can see that I have been caught. Thank you, and see you on Monday!
When you meet ur friend after a long time apart
yup…. pretty much…..
when you hear a song by your favorite artist in the store and try to keep calm
After I packed up all my stuff from home in preparation for my second year at Emmaus, and after watching my grandpa tear up in my arms (which is rare) as I left from their house the night before, I got to thinking about the number of people who have had a great impact in my life. So instead of making a video about it, which was my original plan, I’ve decided to actually write this one out. So without further ado, and in no particular order whatsoever, here are a few people who have left a significant impact on my life.
(A quick note before I begin my list, for privacy sake I’ve decided to not specifically name these people.)
1. My Girlfriend - Ok, so this is the only one that is in a particular order because… obviously… she’s my wonderful girlfriend whom I’m so lucky to have in my life. You’ve helped me with so much and there are days I just don’t know how on earth I’d be able to get through the day without you. You’ve helped me find a glimpse of hope when I swore there wasn’t one. I love you so much and I look forward to a future with you. “I got you” will be our “always.”
2. The Fantastical Foursome - You guys have helped me through so much. I can’t possibly thank you enough. I also thank you guys for taking me “under your wing,” so to speak. It’s a good feeling knowing someone cares about you when you’ve spent a majority of your middle school life and half of your high school life feeling like hardly anyone (with the exception of my parents and a few teachers) truly cares about you. You guys have literally become my second family and it means a lot to me.
3. My Parents - Thank you for all that you’ve done and are doing for me. Heck, thank you for putting up with the pain involved with giving birth to me. Thank you for being there for me and always being willing to help out whenever I struggled to figure something out…. especially whenever it came to hard to understand homework questions. I very much appreciate the many times you showed me your grace and mercy and showed me love when I didn’t deserve it. You guys are what I strive to be like when I become a parent. So… translation of all this…. thanks for everything.
4. My Sister - Thank you…. for being you. You find ways to keep life interesting. I very much love the relationship we have with each other. I know you miss me… no matter how much you say you don’t miss me while I”m off at college…. I know you miss me. I do miss getting to have the one on one conversations we had at home over the summer while I’m at college, cause I know it can help you get through a lot of stressful life issues.
5. My Grandparents - In all honesty, I’ve felt bad for not spending as much time as I’d like to around you. But alas; loads of homework, projects I give myself, and shows I wanted to attempt to start and finish over the summer put a damper on that…. and I feel bad about it. I honestly don’t know what I’d do without you guys and I’m so glad to have you in my life. Like… I legitimately don’t know what I’d do without you in my life, just the mere thought of it puts me in tears as I sit in my friend’s dorm room trying to finish this post and try to look like I haven’t been crying before I head to my next class. To tell you the truth, you guys are the reason I’m writing this post. The night I left your house I began thinking about the very points I’ve written about you guys; you mean so much to me and I feel like I’ve done a terrible job of showing it these last few years. So with all that being said, I can’t possibly thank you enough for all that you’ve done for me and all the things you let Sarah and I do for breakfasts whenever we’d spend the night over at your house as kids. Those were wonderful times. Thank you.
There are many other people and groups of people I could easily list (such as my high school choir friends, my former high school choir teacher, my high school journalism department from my Junior and Senior years, the wonderful people of Berbersherp, my hometown youth pastor, the people on my dorm floor my Freshman year of college, and so many others each with their own unique way they’ve impacted my life), but if I did so my list would go on and on for quite some time. Honestly, this is a good problem to have. I’ve been blessed to be surrounded by so many wonderful people who care about me and who have helped me through thick and thin and I appreciate it more than you could ever know.
Thank you so much and DFTBA*

They didn’t give him a gun, they gave him a screwdriver to fix things.
They didn’t give him a tank or a warship or a X-Wing fighter, they gave him a call box from which you can call for help.
And they didn’t give him a superpower or pointy ears or a heat ray, they gave him an extra heart. They gave him two hearts.
And thats an extraordinary thing; there will never come a time when we don’t need a hero like the doctor.
