Hello to everyone. I know I haven't written in well over a year, but at times, writing seems senseless. I am sure everyone can relate to a moment when life is too full of emotions to write...a time when writing down events that feel like fantasy would take away from the magic........

writing makes things real

******************************

Anyhoo, my life has changed now. My life is still complete, but I have added to make it more full.

On May 16th 2008 I graduated from Baldwyn High School. I will be attending Mississippi University for Women in the fall as a recepient of over $28,000 in scholarships. I am very proud of my awards.

Throughout my senior year, I became more of a person than I was before.....Last March, before the Josh Groban concert, I was quiet....but then, at the meet and greet, I met some friends that I will never forget....and we were all so hyper and happy and we all shared something in common:Josh.

It sounds crazy to say that a concert changed your life, but afterwards, I was more accepting of who I was.....

So, I started my senior year off right by campaigning to be student body president. I even gave a speech to the entire student body.....and I won against a cheerleader. That was a great accomplishment in my life.

I also became great friends with our exchange student....and he has been a great inspiration to me....He is from Seoul, South Korea, and I will visit him one day. He has been a great friend to me and I will always remember him.

Another thing I did this year was traveled to colleges trying to find one that was right for me. I took a greyhound bus (by myself) all the way from my home in Mississippi to Wisconsin to audition for a college. From there, I went back to Kansas City, Missouri, where I stayed for a few days with my host mom with whom I had stayed when I volunteered at the camp for disabled children...and I realized just how much I miss that place...it felt so much like home....But to my disappointment, neither college accepted me into the program of study I want due to my saxophone skills. In mississippi, I play saxophone well, but in other states, I am well underskilled....

But that is Okay!

MUW is going to be a great college for me!

I am going to be a Music Therapist.....I want to help people portray their emotions through music...life is music.......

That is enough for now. Maybe I will write in this journal a bit more often from now on! ^.^
