Update. :)

So, I haven't really given any stories from my life since prom. Right? Right. Well, a lot of new things have been happening. Hmm.. Prom was... in April. Since then, I've done a lot of things! Let us start with... The musical.

  1. Jerome High School put on a spring musical called Guys and Dolls this year. Guess what?? I was in it. :) I actually got to be a lead named Sarah Brown. She's the girl that falls in love, gets her heart broken, is still in love.. and gets married. It was a lot of fun. There were some very awkward stage kisses I had to participate in... but they're over now. Phew! I got to stretch my singing and acting talents and really, It was a blast! I miss performing with my cast-family a lot. We put on a splendid show together. :)
  2. Now, I changed my plans and will be attending the College of Southern Idaho this fall. I would say, "God said 'Psych!'" but Mary told me that God doesn't say 'psych'. When it came down to thinking about college... I realized that I took my desire to go to Utah State and just decided to make that my answer to prayer. After praying more about it, and getting over my beef with staying in the Magic Valley, I know that I'm supposed to go to CSI. I know this is where I need to be, and I know God has a plan for me. I just need to remember and trust that. So... I'm going to CSI.
  3. I got to perform one of my old clogging dances at our end of the year assembly and... I rocked the stage and the audience and my dance. It was pretty much the :) I hadn't performed that dance in a year and I re-learned it a few days before performing it. Doing my dance woke up a forgotten love of clogging that I am so so glad to remember. I also had my national competition and my recital this month. They both went really well! At my studio, I received the Dancer of the Year award. That was pretty cool. I also get to teach clogging this summer and coming school year. I
  4. lost my cell phone last week on Tuesday morning at school. I thought it was left at school... I searched every single place I could think of and more. I tore the school, my bedroom, and my house apart looking for it! Yesterday, It showed up in the band room. No wonder I couldn't find it...! I was worried. Now I'm not.
  5. Sunday I graduated from Seminary. Actually... I didn't! I didn't turn all of my makeup work in on time, so they gave me a paper that told me I'd get it when I turned it in. My bad... ! I turned it in on yesterday and got my diploma.
  6. I graduate tomorrow at 6:00PM. I'm really sorry... I haven't sent out any announcements yet... :S I'm a slacker. I still AM going to send them... just after I graduate... I kind of already feel graduated. That's what a big move does to a girl I guess.
  7. I'll probably work at Old Navy this summer. :)! Discount clothes, YES! I can't wait.

So!, that is my update. I tried really hard to add photos... but tonight my computer is being really S...L...O...W. slow. I'll get some on here soon. :)


I find that on my worst days...
  • it always feels good to stomp on some tulips.
  • laughing is a splendid medicine.
  • tears are sometimes necessary.
  • a warm embrace warms my spirit and lifts me up.
  • chocolate dulls the ache.
  • finding ways to serve others takes away the sting.
  • a long run clears the confusion and relaxes the senses.
  • it's a lot of fun to yell nonsense all alone in the car.
  • I like to pretend that it isn't a worst day.
  • they sometimes come because I'm feeling sorry for myself.

A Little Random

I found this a couple days ago. I wrote it my Junior year in U.S. History on a VERY boring day. It lightened things up a little bit. :)

Short Story
There was once a little toothbrush.
He said his name was Fred.
He had a squishy on his bosom and some bristles on his head.
He also had a girlfriend.
Her name?
Well, it was Fran.
She was really very bright.
She didn't have a tan.
They enjoyed to bristle-hug and smooch quite a bunch...
One day Fred was very glum and sort of had a hunch.
Fran broke it off and moved along.
She got a new boyfriend.
Thanks for reading my short story!
Now this, it is The End. :)

One LoNG Paragraph

I got to write this for my clogging recital because I am a Senior. My recital is this Tursday, and this One LoNG Paragraph will be in the program or something. My mom's been hinting for a while that she wants me to blog so... Here is my One LoNG Paragraph...

Once upon a time, there was a girl named Becca. Oh! That’s me. I’m Becca :). So… like some other girls, I haven’t always been a dancer. Up until the 5th grade, I was a hard-core soccer girl. Goalie and Forward were my favorite positions. I dreamed of playing for the pros when I grew up. Well, being in a family always brings surprises. I wasn’t the only one in my family who played soccer… My three siblings all also were soccer kids. That meant our Wednesdays and Saturdays were soccer; soccer, soccer, soccer. My parents were a little tired of attending soccer events all day on their Saturdays, so… My mom introduced us to clogging. Clogging? I had never heard of it before in my life. When I got to my first lesson, I was very confused. What is this Hill-Billy dancing?? Well, before I continue, thank you, mom, for introducing me to what very quickly became one of my greatest loves. Clogging is now my outlet, my soul, my song. When nothing else makes sense, clogging does. It’s always there when I’m maxed out with stress. It calms my nerves and is also there through my joys. Many of you may not know this, but at the end of this last August, my family moved to Jerome from Utah. When coming to this team, I won’t deny it, I was very nervous. I didn’t know what to expect. Within a few weeks, all my fears were washed away. Thank you, all of you on my team for being so accepting of me in all of my awkwardness. You quickly went from team to being a splendid family. Your hard work, light, and love bring so much to this group. Thank you, for letting me be a part of it all. Thank you, Hailey, for being so willing to be my duet partner. I am so grateful for your friendship and our rambling talks. I really will miss you as you’re away. You’ve been working so much, I already miss you! Thank you, thank you, for being such a great example of friendship and light to me. And to Shannon, Thank you for taking me in. You’ve taught me names of random clogging steps, helped me gain an identity as a dancer, and taught me to have fun again with clogging. You’ve helped me develop as an individual and helped me to be brave. I can’t even express all the ways you’ve been there for me. Thank you again, Mom and Dad, thank you for being there through all of my clogging years. Thank you for introducing me to this love and for helping me remember why I’m still here, because I love to dance! :)

That's all. :)
