An angel has received her wings.

A friend from high school passed away today. After a brain aneurysm, and several surgeries, her family made the best decision, and the decision that she would have wanted.

She has passed on, and I hope she is in heaven looking down upon us all, realizing how much she will be missed.

This is proof that life can become incredibly short incredibly quickly.

Rest in Peace Kayte Mosher

Anyone know where all the time went?

I posted 4 times in 2011...Jeez. Ok, maybe this year I'll be better about blogging....maybe.
Anyway, I have the day off from school because of MLK day. I don't mind that so much I get to relax some, do homework, not change out of my pajamas. I do recognize the importance of the day, but seriously, I'm not the only college student who is enjoying the day off.

I've been thinking (yea I know scary)...this is my last semester...I'm graduating in June. I still gotta pass LDAC (which I will) then I'll be an LT. But damn, it's been 4 years! Where did the time go?....Am I ready?

Well I guess I'm gonna have to be.

Welcome to 2012, please take your seats the show will commence shortly

Yep, it's a new year. It's always the new year, new you thing...well really its the old you trying to make you better. Yea...see...not as much fun is it? Did you think you were reborn as a completely new person after you woke up from being passed out from your champagne induced coma? No. You are not a butterfly, you will not sit in a chrysalis for a period of however many hours you are passed out for and emerge the pinnacle of health, morals, and whatever else you want to add to it. Trust me, the torn dress, worn out make up, mussed up hair all agree with me. (For those of you who made decent decisions on new years...this still applies)... I give credit to those who make resolutions (I being one of an extent) but you will receive no accolades from me unless you make it through February (or longer ) on that goal...and its a goal, not a resolution. Set goals for yourself....don't resolve yourself to be better, set goals to be better...somehow it makes you feel better on the inside.

This year is gonna be a good one, or at least better than the last.
