On Nature and Working Hard

I love nature.  Especially fall nature.  So I take pictures of it to get my mind off of stress and such.  I also have decided I want a Canon 60D.  I love that camera so. so. much.  For realsies.

I also love hand lettering.  Have I told you that?  I love so many different letterers (is that what they are called?)  And I have recently started doing my own lettering.  Something about that just calms me down, and gives me time to think.  I might have found my calling in life.  And I can't talk about it and not show you, so the last picture is of one of my favorites.  I'm working on another right now that I think will also be placed into the "favorites" category.  So stay tuned for that one.  Enough words now, on to pictures!

Crunch leaves and....

Autumn sunsets... What more could a girl ask for?

Isn't fall beautiful?  Ahhhh....

Doesn't this quote just sum it all up?  Work hard and be nice to people.  Simple.  And I love the satisfaction that comes from making something that I like, other people like and makes me proud.  See, hard work... :)

I Wrote This Yesterday...

There comes a point in everyone's lives where they think to themselves:

What the Heck is going on in my life?

That day for me was today.

Today I'm supposed to sign up for the SAT, write an essay I could seriously care less about, Finish half of an online class (which isn't going to happen by the way)... OH!  And try to act like a normal person who doesn't bite people's heads off when they talk to you.

(Let's just say I didn't do well on my goal to be less sarcastic today.)

One out of four is looking pretty good right now.  I signed up for the SAT.  Oh, but UVU was completely full so I have to go to Sandy to take a test to maybe get a scholarship.  Maybe.

This is what I get for thinking "Dang!  I have a really easy senior schedule!" on Monday.  Word of advice:  Never even think those words or life decides to play a cruel, cruel joke on you.  Well played, life.  Well played.  Or should I say:  I kind of hate you right now...  It's one of those.

But you know what?  I'm so excited for college.  I'm ready to move out, to learn for myself and to get started on real life.  I mean, high school is totally real life, right?  Ha.  Ha.  Ha.

On a lighter note:  I wrote a killer essay for a scholarship earlier this week.  It reaffirms the feeling I got when I saw I got a 5 on the AP Language test.  (Which- might I add- the feeling was quickly abandoned upon re-entering Mr. Rutter's Creative Writing class...)  So there's one thing I actually feel good about this week.  Scratch that- there's the only thing I feel good about this week.

But- now I have to go write an essay.  Joy.
