While I'm still in my lower twenties.

These things I know for sure: 1. When something is a really big deal - I'll always lose the ability to form complete sentences and formulate complete thoughts.

2. I honestly, without a doubt, have the best friends in the entire world.

3. I'll always see my dad's big brown eyes staring back at me in the mirror.

4. I was born prepared to conquer anything life can throw at me.

5. I don't think I'll ever be able to handle awkward situations, even though I know feeling that awkwardness roll over my skin, means I'm truly living.


With mere days before I wear a pair of sparkly shoes to the Cougar Club Welcome Party, I'm so excited to be at this point in my life.

I hope to live a life my grandkids will envy.
