I am in my second semester of college this year :) i am taking:

English 101F
Psychology 101
Philosophy 101
Criminal justice 101
All added up to 15 credits

WOW is this difficult! I love college though. I love how there is absolutely no drama; i don’t have to make friends if i don’t want to, and most importantly... i am actually learning new things every day. Philosophy is my hardest class, but taking it helps me feel more intelligent. SURPRIZE!!! I do have a brain. Everyday i am becoming more independent (a little at a time) i am happy to say i do not miss high school what so ever.

More information to come :)
I’m happy with my life.

Since May of 2009, my life has drastically changed. I’ve graduated from high school, Basic Training and AIT. I have been enlisted in the Army reserves for 2 years now. In training I meet John whom I have been in a long distance relationship with since September 10, 2009. I have visited the states of Missouri, Wisconsin, Georgia, Texas, and Washington ßtoo many times to count. My relationship with my parents is no longer a bad one.

            First things first, I attend UNLV and undecided major. This semester I plan to declare biology army major and minor in Criminal justice. My ultimate goal is to become a medical examiner. In order to accomplish that goal I must first have a medical and law degree. So for now I aspire to be a coroner and earn my law degree in the future. In the fall of this year I plan to attend Gonzaga with john and continue to be enrolled in the ROTC program.

            In out one year and four month relationship john and I have grown very close. Being so far apart has helped us get to know one another. I am happy to say that he is my best friend, and I love him very much. I am fortunate to have such a person in my life. Also that my parents like him (yes even my dad) which was very hard to come by. I miss him every day; I just tell myself when I get up in the morning that today is just one more day closer to spending the rest of my life with him. I love you john <3

            My family is very supportive of me and my decisions. All they want is the best for me I have come to realize. I no longer play the childish games I once played in high school. I have become a completely different person because of the army and my family. High school is a thing of the past, memories to keep in a box under my bed.

Yeah I know… It’s been a LONG while since I have updated anything. I’ll start from this past November. On November 26, 2008 you all know that I enlisted in the army reserves at MEPS (Military Entrance Processing Station) in Salt Lake City, Utah. Before I went I was told it is the hardest part of joining the military. All MEPS is, is a HUGE doctors office. It’s an all over physical. They check everything from you head to toes. In my opinion it wasn’t that bad at all. The only thing I wanted to do was eat some darn turkey and get it all over with. So about ten hours later I swore in and officially became a part of the United States Army Reserves.

My MOS (Military Occupational Specialty) is a chemical operations specialist. This will be my job in the Army for the next 6 years. I don’t know much about it yet. A chemical operations specialist deals with Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear hazards in the air. I am NOT one of those guys that walk around in a big white suite like you saw in E.T. I will actually be working with a vehicle called a BIDS (Biological Integrated Detection System) here are some pictures of them…

i am told this is the beast. It's the brains of it all

TODAY WAS MY FIRST DAY IN MY FIRST RESERVE WEEKEND!!! I know exciting huh. This is my new job and so far... I LOVE IT, if you couldn’t tell already. Today was all of my in processing so I didn’t do much. But tomorrow my day will start at 7 in the morning with some PT (Physical Training) LOTS of acronyms in the military. I gotta get used to it.

Well I had a pretty fun day, amazing and different. I met a lot of new people today. Thank goodness they all wear name badges or I would go crazy.

wisdom teeth

on thursday at 2 in the afternoon i had two of my wisdom teeth EMERGENCYLY REMOVED from my face. it has been a fun adventure. so two days before we went to the dentist so he could tell me what i already knew( by the way nice man, very funny) i was scared yes..i have never had any sort of surgery, never been put to sleep, never had teeth taken out, and never Have i had an IV in my arm, untill thursday.

when i was brought in to the room where they were going to do their MAGIC, they sat me in a chair. it looked like a death chair. i mean the arms of it had arm straps..(not scary HA) the woman tried to calm me down with small talk so we started talking about Dr.Pepper of all things. And i LOVE Dr. Pepper. then another nurse came in and injected something that relaxed me, and boy did it relax me. the doctor came in and bam..i was out like a light. when i woke up i realized i was missing one of my flip flops and my mouth felt like half of it was swelled up like a balloon. oh and i was missing two teeth. YAY. thank goodness i couldnt feel my mouth cause im sure if i could then i dont know what i would have done.

i got home layed down on the couch and feel asleep. i remaind asleep for the rest of the night and a remainder of the next morning. that morning is when ALL the fun started. the pain in my tooth cause me so much agony i was litterally sick to my stomach. the toilet became my best friend.

i feel much much MUCH better today. tomorrow is my last day of summer and im happy i will spend it healthy, happy and excited. wish me luck on my new year..

Happy Face

school is starting and its really exciting!! its my last year of high school and it WILL be the best. before now school had just been tedious work..and very annoying. waking up at 5:30 pushing myself to get out of bed and attempt to look good. and this year i have a reason to JUMP out of bed. IM A SENIOR! top of the school, head of the school, its an amazing feeling.

knowing that this will be the last year i have in school with my best friend and my beloved sister. though we will never depart. i will always be by her side and she will be by mine. it may not always be physicaly but in my heart ill always be here for her. she may not know it but without her i would wonder where my other part is. i would always have a feeling like something is missing. but since she is here i will never be alone. it feels amazing to share the world with her.

i have soo much to look forward to this going to 17. and soon after that i am planing on joining the Army Reserves. that contributes to a BIG part of my excitement for this year. ending high school will open a new beginging in my life..College.its a new big step in my life. i am almost ready to be out on my own, to make decisions for myself. i have so many ideas and so many plans for the road ahead. its all to exciting and over whelming. i know what i have to do and ive already got my hand on the door just waiting for the perfect time to open it.

so back to high school...

i have had many ups and MANY downs. there are two people that have pushed me and pushed me to make the right choices and behave, to do my homework and pay attention, be a good example and have fun. these two people have and will always be here for me. they will love me no matter what and they will alway be behind me. they are my parents. my mommy and daddy. i would not be here if it werent for them. i really didnt do good at all last year and they were behind me PUSHING me harder and harder to be better. and i did it. i got through with their help im done with my childish games.

high school is only the begining to my understanding in life. life is full of challenges and hills and mountians. its a big roller coaster.

I AM A SENIOR IN HIGH SCHOOL!! only the begining.
