So sorry! Life is hectic!

Guys this had been a busy week!! School work is getting pilled on, and hair school starts in 16 days! 
And I hurt my knee pretty bad, gotta get a MRI done to see exactly what I've done to it.. I'm a crippled soul;) only few will understand hahaha:) 
Well it's been a pretty good week school is long but going good:) and I can't play tennis till we get this knee problem figured out so hopefully we will!
Lets see oh! 
Okay so a couple of my friends talked me into asking my principal if I could talk to the student body you know just on how attitude helps with everything! So it turns out that ill be doing just that! Not sure when yet but ill figure that out latter. When I say a couple friends I mean like all of them which is a ton! I'm excited but I'm nervous! 
The news cast!! Sorry I forgot to tell all y'all! Okay so since all the bad stuff in Egypt and the fires around here have been so bad they had to move it around Labor Day so it should be coming soon. I'm pretty nervous about it I want to see it but again I don't. If you know what I mean! 
Well it's late and I know this isn't inspirational ill come up with one soon. And I'll try to update as much as possible but with school, hair school, homework and church stuff I don't know how much that will be but I will as much as I can! Thanks for all the support you guys have given me through our everything!
This is me and my favorite girl cuddling knows when I nee it. Love her to death! Ill write on her later!

Tribute Tuesday! It's time to thank someone special

   Well it's been awhile since I've done one of these. Sorry bout that, school is starting to take over! 
   I should've done this one a long time ago. But it's been crazy, and I have a lot of people that I got to get to. But this one is important! 
   This person is an incredible artist, and medical engineer! The person is Paul Tanner! Yeah he is pretty great! He is the one who gave me what Ive wanted all my life; My ears! I can't even begin to explain the first meeting when he walked in and basically told me yes and shaved the spots where they would go! It was one of the greatest days of my life! Not including the day that I got my ears! 
   Out of all the doctors I've had in my life thus far. Mr. Tanner is by far my favorite:) 
I wish I had the picture of right after I got the ears and I hugged him! Ill get all those pictures soon though! I'm excited to see how they turned out! 
    Mr. Tanner thank you so much for giving me my ears! I love them so much!! Thanks for all the time and effort you put into them! seriously I love them like they are my own children!  People keep complimenting your work so of course i give all the credit to you! Thank you so much for everything!! Ill get that picture on here soon I hope! 
  Oh and guys either tomorrow or Thursday KSL is doing a small segment on my experience! So tune it at 10! Illput the   link on here as well afterwords! 
   Thank you so much for all the  support you guys have given me it means so much! 
You can kind of see my ear there but the main thing are the earrings! I'm in heaven! Love wearing them! Some people take them for granted but not me!!

My rant on fears and random stuff

  Well hair school is starting next month and I am in my last year if high school now. So lots of homework is coming soon. It's going to be hard to post everyday. But I'll write at lest once a week:) 
   It's been a busy week. Living up high school, loving be surrounded by my best friends! 
   I don't really have anything inspirational to write..  Wait hold on yes I do!! 
The topic of today is fear.
  People seem to think that because I've had so many surgeries and so many other things that I don't have fears! I'm sorry but it's a stupid thought. Everyone has fears, I don't fear going to doctors but I do hate it. But I do have a fear of going into major surgeries. They freak me out! Major surgeries may have major complications! 
  I also have a fear of earthquakes and volcanoes. It doesn't help when you live by a sleeping volcano and earthquake territory.  
   I have plenty of fears of small and big stuff. Life is meant to overcome your fears, not to hide from them. And once you overcome them you feel as though you can conquer the world. Ill admit there are some fears that are hard to come by. 
   Sorry it's just been bugging me that people think that just because I've had so many things done that I don't have fears. NOT TRUE!! Life is full of fears. But you just have to overcome them one day at a time:)
   Well that's my rant for the day.. Not really inspirational but hey I gotta get it out:)

Last first day of High School

  Sorry I haven't been writing regularly it's gonna be even harder now that schools started! 
  This is my last year of High School! It's so crazy to think about that! It only seems like yesterday that I was walking to kindergarten with my sister Lyndsey. Mrs. Smith was her name, and Megan McCool was my best friend:)  we are still friends thanks to Facebook! 
  Now I'm driving to my parking spot with no hand to hold getting ready to face my last year of being a kid. It's time to turn into the adult, I've been mistaken for a senior for many years now. But it's actually true and in about nine months I will be walking through the D with my very best of friends, my mentors, and my classmates. Dixie High School is the best I will forever be a flyer! 
CLASS OF 2014 let's do this!

   Sorry I've been celebrating these past couple days about my ears so I haven't posted. I got my ears Friday afternoon about 3. My first thought when Paul was finished painting and let me turn around was, oh my gosh are these for real?! I flipped out! I was close to tears but I held them in:) the only thing running through my head was wow, wow, WOWZA! I first hugged Dad then Mom, Finally the master painter and sculpture Paul Tanner! 
   We had a photographer come and take pictures on te story, I'm so excited to see them! Amy thanks for taking the pictures! I can't wait to see the rest of them! 
   Ahh I still can't believe that I have them! They look so real, and Im just in love with them!! 
   Can't thank Mr. Tanner enough!! Thank you all so much for all the support you have given me through out all of this! 
 The excitement is way too much!! Love you all!!
 Thanks for reading!

   Well less than 24 hours and ill be walking out of the office with my ears!! Gah I can't even begin to tell you how excited I am!! I've waited 17.5 years for this and it's all happening tomorrow!!!
   How we finally came to the conclusion to do ears? Well mom and dad said that this would be my last surgery so I could get my ears that I've wanted for years! But my infection came and now we are talking about doing another jaw type surgery. But I made them keep this promise that this summer was gonna be my ear summer! I mean come on its my senior year what person doesn't want to go to school with something different? Well my is kind of extreme but still:) senior year gotta go out with a bang!
    This whole week we have been up in SLC had a minor surgery( 34th) to expose the screws and stuff then have been moulding an fitting these past two days. Didn't today they needed to sit in something for 24 hours. So tomorrow we  go and make any final changes we want, then paint them to my skin colour then bam I'm done!! So crazy to think about it!! But I'm beyond excited!! Feels like my whole life has lead to this point!! Oh and yes of course the ears are gonna be pierced, I have a couple sets of earrings already!! 
   We are having a photographer come to capture the moment when I put the final set on. I can't wait to see those pictures!
Well we have to get up early and go to the fitting and everything but ill write as soon as we are done!! Good night
Thanks for reading! 
This is the first mould.

Tribute Tuesday & throwback Thursday.

   Guys I'm sorry it's been a while since I've posted!! I've been so tired these past few days helping my sister travel and move in. And coming back to Utah. We finally got into the house,so we spent a few hours unloading and stuff on te first day.and we spent three more days but still not all the way finished! But When my other sister Tara came to help; she came with a surprise ticket for me to go see Wicked with her and her family!!!
   This is where my tribute Tuesday and Throwback Thursday comes in. I wanna spot light Elphiba AKA The Wicked Witch of The West. Now I know I said I was gonna spotlight a guy but when I saw this I started thinking that she has inspired me without me even knowing. Elphiba, is a girl who nobody wants to be around because she looks different. People think that because she looks different that she is different. And her whole life she has tried to convince people that she isn't.
   Life is full of these types of people, the people that try and tear you down. the ones that are always out there trying to convince you that you shouldn't be allowed to live or whatever. Elphiba has taught many people including me that you can't let what others think about you get to you. Even though she did most of the time she eventually learned that lesson also.  You have to be strong and never give up because we all have a reputation that we have to keep up. for her it was im green yes but im also very smart and I can beat the crap out of any of you with my super awesome powers.
She was also amazingly strong through out all of her life, at one point in the play the wizard ask her," Aren't you tired of being strong all the time?" I love it because of how true it is. We are all tired of being strong in out own way.
    Elphiba only had one true friend in her life Glinda the good, they had a lot of differences. But the differences made the friendship stronger. I have a ton of friends, I have many true friends that make all the difference in my life they help me through all the ups and downs  in my life. Friendship in my opinion is one of the strongest bonds of life that there are.
   Sorry once again that its taking me so long to update my blog ive been slightly busy and tired. I just had the second part of my ear surgery yesterday so Im still recovering, getting the ears though this week!! Ill be updating more frequently from now on! Sorry guys! feel free to leave questions and or comments! Thanks for reading guys!! im tired so if none of this makes sense this is why :)
