cubical final words

I am sitting at my computer tech cubical for the last time this year and it feels a little odd. It feels odd in the sence that it seems like we have been in school for years and haven’t had a break, yet at the same time it feels as if the school year has flown by. I am supposed to be working on my final project that is due at the end of class today. My teacher has already entered them into our grades to show us what we would get if we didn’t do it. I have an A so we will see how much of that actually gets done. YOLO!

This year has been good, though not my favorite. I have grown a ton this year. {not literally… I’m still only 4′ 9.5″ tall} I have increased much in wisdom. I survived Mr. Conners class and enjoyed every second of it. And well, I learned to drive a car this year {not an easy task}. I have increased in stature by strengthening myself at tumbling as well as recovering from an injury so I could compete. I have increased in favor with man by learning to talk to people more and to say hi to other first. And I think the thing I have increased the most is in favor with God. It has been a great year for strengthening my testimony and I am proud to say I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Later Day Saints and I know the church is true.

I thought I’d share with you something I thought was funny.

This is my blog.
Scroll down a bit and you will find this.

Now notice the thing circled in red.

I find this funny. There is supposed to me a Book of Mormon there. The school district has blocked the Book of Mormon link at the school. I’ll show them!

Look at this people! Third blog post in TWO DAYS! I am on a roll! Please check out my fundraiser post! I would love your help if you live near me. Y’all are the greatest.

So can anyone guess where I am? That’s right! Computer tech! My teacher just turned off the “internet” little does she know that blogger still works. {muahaha} So I am blogging. She says we have to do extra credit when we are done. I’m sorry, but I refuse… I already have an A. {I know, I know, I am a terrible student.}

So it is Wednesday. Sadly, it isn’t Friday yet, but we are getting there. Endure to the end my friends. I can’t wait for the weekend to come, why is it so far away? I will stop there so I don’t make any of you cry.

I have spent my time in class scrolling through the pictures of blue lily photo at http://bluelily.squarespace.com/. These guys are pro and I can’t get over how great they are. I have tried to mimic their photography as of late and my photography teacher keeps marking me down saying “your pictures are too light.” Well teacher, all I have to say is “feel my sunlight”. {See what I did there?}

I don’t really know where this post is going. I guess I will leave you with my favorite poem. Last year I was known for always presenting tumbling powems in theatre. I love them and this was my favorite.

Patience is man’s greatest virtue
Or so the saying goes,
A gymnast must have said it,
For a gymnast surely knows.
 
That in this funny sport of ours
Discouragement runs high,
And at times the very best
Will find the virtue’s passed her by.
 
When hands are ripped and throbbing
And every muscle sore
Can a gymnast still have patience
To limp back in for more.
 
Can you admit you’re frightened
Yet not give into fears
Can you conquer pain, frustrations
And often even tears.
 
When someone else does something
You’ve tried so long to do
Can you feel really glad for her
And not just pity you.
 
When you’ve lost old moves
You used to do
And progress seems so slow
Can you still have faith in better days
And not feel so sad and low.
 
And when success seems so far away
Your efforts all in vain
Can you force yourself to wear a smile
And disregard the pain.
 
If despite these tribulations
You can say, “I won’t give in”
Someday you will discover
That it’s now your turn to WIN.

Computer tech blog time! I decided on Monday night that I am NOT going to scratch my meet this Saturday. I mean how can you walk away from this?
 
 {yes, I did steal Justin’s pictures.}
 
I know… So come what may, I’m competing. It may be rough but I’m not going down without a fight. I even bought a brand-spanken-new leo to wear on FRIDAY when I’m NOT AT SCHOOL and am WARMING UP with athletes from ALL OVER THE WORLD! whew! This keeps getting better! Except the whole taping/acebandaging/bracing the ankle thing. That’s not so fun. But you do what you’ve got to do.
 
 
I’m pumped. I’m excited. I’m ready. My body on the other hand, is not. But tumbling is 99% mental anyway right? So my compeditors had better watch out!
 
Have you ever been so excited about something that you just can’t even function. Ya, that’s how I feel right now. It’s a mix of relief that I am going to be able to compete, buckets and buckets of excitement, and well… nerves. (I know it’s kinda early for nerves but AHHHH!) A great gymnast once said “If you loose the nerves, you loose the sport.” And let me tell you, I haven’t lost the sport.
 
So I hope you enjoyed that little rant on my meet this Saturday. I doubt anyone but my team mates and my mom have made it all the way through. So congrats if you did! I’m excited and the bell is about to ring. Love you all!

a chain reaction

Can anybody guess where I am? That’s right! COMPUTER TECH! I just thought I’d write a quick post about kindness while I sit here in my cubical doing nothing.

I have felt much kindness today and it is only the third period of the day. Starting with the wonderful student that stands outside the seminary building and holds the door for everyone EVERY DAY without fail. You are fantastic. Thank you for taking your time to perform a service that may seem small enough to pass unnoticed, yet is truthfully monumental. Then to the people in my seminary class who didn’t know me, yet made an effort to get to know me and to talk to me and make me feel welcome. I feel your love and send it right back to you. I also want to say thank you to the kids in my seminary class who talk to me outside of class. This realy helps bring us together as friends and helps me know there is someone else out there in this corrupt world that is living the same standards as me and that I can talk to. Then to the friend in my computer tech class who is always quick to pick up my book for me and is always so free with compliments. Your kindness warms my heart and I just love being around you because you always make an effort to put others first. You guys rock!

These wonderful people have inspired me to pass it on and to strive to be a better person. To try say hi, to compliment people without thinking about it, to be kind. I make this challenge to you. Start a chain reaction and see what happens.

I have this theory               
        that if one person
can go out of their way           
          to show compassion,
          then it will start a chain reaction
          of the same.                       
                        People will never know
 how far a little kindness        
                 can go.
