blank'/> Laughing Through the Silences: March 2013

Saturday, March 23, 2013

This totally happened.

Good thing I'm always so caught up on everything and never procrastinate and I always get things done on time. Oh wait...I don't. In other words, sorry I'm such a let down, guys! Judge me. Whatever.


Here comes a massive picture overload. Enjoy!


On our way to Salt Lake!

The grass was wet, so she carried me to safety. What a sweetheart! Haha.

I sincerely LOVE these girls. We're the three seniors... AHHH!!!


Once again, MY HOMEGIRLS!

We were washing windows and he couldn't reach the, he was jumping on the roof. If you knew this man's personality, you would realize how hilarious this is. I wish you all knew him. Now this is just awkward...Oh gosh. Sorry!

On top of the conference center!

The most MASSIVE bathroom I've ever seen. Rows and rows and rows and rows and rows (you get the idea) of stalls.

The whole group.
Honestly, this was one of the very best trips ever. We had a similar trip last year and I was not excited at all for that trip. It ended up being the funnest trip. Same goes for this year. I was not excited. At all. I did not want to go. But, guys, I ended up going and I had a blast. Actually, a blast and a half. Plus another half. So, that's basically two whole blasts. That's how fun it was. I love these girls. Every single one of them. And, we have great leaders and a wonderful bishopric. I'm so blessed.



I had the best date ever...

...and the best group ever!

So, I'm laughing quite hysterically in this picture because I was just chillin with my peeps and then I realized that I had no idea where my date was and I was kinda the awkward fifth wheel in this picture. No big deal.

The ladies
 Guys, prom was pretty dang fun! We went Geo-caching and we also played ultimate croquet. was the bomb!

Anyways, this was an extremely long post but you're welcome for all of these awesome pictures!!!!

Peace. And. Blessings.

Well, that's slightly frustrating!

Alright. Google Reader is retiring. No big deal. But, for funsies, why don't you just go ahead and follow me on bloglovin now!

Guys, there's even a neat-o mobile app for bloglovin and it is 152% the easiest thing to move all of the blogs that you follow from Google Reader to bloglovin.

I'm pretty sure that you'll all love it!

Also, one day, I'll tell you guys about prom. And the laurel retreat. But, first I have to make my life calm down and take a breather.

Thank you, come again.

Guess what!

You'll never guess, guys. I went out of town AGAIN this weekend. Fun, right?!

Can you say

I'm excited to tell you guys all about this. You're just gonna have to wait until I can get the pictures, though. Sorry. Be patient! Patience is a virtue. Actions speak louder than words. Home is where the heart is. Two is better than one. The way to a man's heart is through is stomach. The watched pot never boils. Twice up the barrel, once down the side.

Anyways, there's something else exciting that I still haven't told you all...I got asked to prom!

The question:
"Your date, should you choose to accept it, will be with Scott Mershon at 19:00. You will be picked up by a person wearing a bow tie. This box and my heart will self destruct if you fail to go to prom with me."

The answer:
I decided to use a secret code to answer him so he got these papers through out the day. It ended up saying, "Of course I'll go to prom with you!" Also, I just HAD to put major monogram on the decoder, obviously, and it says, "WWMMD? What would major monogram do?"

My date and I are basically superstars. Sorry it took me so long to tell you guys. I'm probably the most inconsiderate friend ever! I can't believe I held this from you! 

You'll have to forgive me.

Love you ALL!

Earlier tonight, I was in a meeting so, naturally, my phone was on silent.

When I looked at my phone at the end of my meeting, I had around 96 texts.

I basically got a trillion messages like this:

: (
:  (
:    (
:     (
Ask me, "Why the long face?"
: (
:  (

Guys, I have such cool friends....

And now I am in the process of receiving a thousand more texts. We're at 28 right now.

KEEP 'EM COMIN, GUYS!! I CAN HANDLE THIS!!! I just don't know if my phone can handle this...

I've been doing some growing up and I've made a few decisions!

You know those friends that are like, "Hey. Let's be friends forever. I'll ALWAYS be here for you. You can tell me everything and I'll always be here to support you," and then hard times come along and then they're like, "I'm out of here!"

When my friend like this decided to just ditch me, I tried the whole "heartbreak" thing for a couple of hours. Guys, it just didn't work for me. I cried into another one of my friend's arms for awhile. Bless her flippin soul! She came over at midnight last night to console my crying self. I love that girl.

When I say the heartbreak thing didn't work for me, I'm not saying that it doesn't hurt. It does. It hurts very badly and my heart really is pained. What I'm saying is that I'm not going to shut down and stop functioning. I've just decided. And, you know what else? I'm not gonna even feel bad for myself. I'm just gonna BE. And, I'm gonna try my hardest to be happy.

I'm not saying that I won't ever cry again. Guys, I'm just a crier. I'll always cry. That's what I do!
I'm not saying that I'm not upset and angry. I am. I'm very angry.
I'm not saying that things will be easy from now on because of that choice that I made. Things are still gonna suck. I just know it.

But, I will not YIELD to my grief. It will not control me anymore.

That's my nugget of wisdom for the day.

In other news---------

I had my last violin festival today. My last violin festival EVER! Also, my last youth orchestra concert. Yayyyy!!! Now all that I have left is district solo. If those words mean nothing to you, that's okay. Just know that I am very happy that this is all ending.

My super cool stand partner, Parker, gave two of my friends and me graduation presents. He's a, he's quite a bit younger than us but he certainly knows how to make my day. I do love that kid!

Alright. Let me just finish this lovely post by saying a massive THANK YOU (if you're a directioner, that meant something to you...massive thank you) to all of you who read my blog and comment and such. You guys are super fantastic and incredible and I love you all!

I love you so much that I'm going to share this song with you. Honestly, I just love the Honey Trees. Listen to all of their songs, friends. You rock.
