Years have passed.

I don’t know what I’m doing with my life quite yet. I have no clue what I am feeling and quite frankly I don’t know what the future holds at all. I am kind of freaked out.

I keep telling myself everything will work out but I get the feeling something big is coming and I’m really quite scared.

I just hope I’m ready for whatever is to come.


Day 15 – 9/20/12

I’ve gained quite a bit of weight. Ugh.


I feel like I haven’t done anything in the past two weeks. CRAP.

Maybe I’ll go to the Valdez’s today.

Day 0 – 8/4/12

Said goodbye to my best friend. He left for college today.

We stayed up all night (besides the few times I fell asleep, and woke back up) watching tons of movies, and just laughing.

Woke up at almost 8 am after falling asleep at 5:30. They left, I cried, then they came back 30 minutes later because they forgot something. It was quite funny. The second goodbye is so much more awkward than the first because you already thought they were gone…

But they’re officially gone (parents come back Sunday, however).

So mostly today I will be working, cleaning, and hanging out at my lovely home away from home.



Usually, my family fights Sundays. I DON’T know why, but my dad is ALWAYS all agitated EVERY sunday, and argues with everyone.

BUT TODAY! Today has been amazing(: me and my dad had a little (okay, medium) sized spat earlier, but it’s been perfect besides that.

And just a few minutes ago, Shannon was super sweet to me.

It’s definitely not a normal day. But I’m loving it.

She says to me, “Amanda, WHY don’t you have a boyfriend yet. You’re so good looking.”

Exact words. “Good looking.” I don’t know what eight year old says that, but it doesn’t matter. It made me so happy. (I think she was thinking about it though because while she was playing dolls, Tinkerbell was trying to look for a boyfriend… SO it wasn’t completely random.)

And gahhh . I just love today. This morning my mom and I went and did like a 3 hour long photoshoot for me out in some park, and on The Mound. The pictures were just ehh, because most of them are VERY posed, and I was hoping to do a more not-so posed photoshoot like all the kids are doing these days. But I forgot my mom may be really good with a camera, but mostly for posed shots.

But that was fun, and then I came home, changed, and went to church. Which I kinda zoned out of the entire time, but it still was good. Then Sis. Eppley talked about making our homes a more peaceful and happy environment, and that’s what I want to do.

So now, I’m inspired to SUPER clean my house (once again, and try to KEEP it clean), DECORATE it (there’s nothing pretty on the walls), SCHEDULE dinners, and help make them (we REALLY need to eat healthier… LIKE reallyyyy badly), and lastly, just spend time with my sisters more. I love them to death, and I want them to know that.

I hope everyone else is having as great a day as I am(:

The guitar necklace Evan gave me – (YES, I looked it up, I had too… AND now I’m wondering if HE has the guitar pick that says “lucky” on it)

Church, church, and more church…


WOW. There are A LOT of churches out there…

Too many to be exact.

It’s kind of crazy. How do people choose one? There are Muslims, Amish, Mormons, just plain Christians, Buddhists, Jewish, Protestant, and a heck of a lot more… (sorry if most of those are divisions within Christianity. They are just off the top of my head.)

I am already part of a church, but I’m not so sure about it. Then again, I’m young. But, I am very curious about other faiths, and other people of those faiths. And after researching about a lot of them I found a lot of shocking things, that I guess shouldn’t be SO shocking?

I found so many articles of rape, murder, and many other extremely saddening things that are happening within these religions. But, people are people, and even if they look good, they apparently can be bad. Very bad.

Is it true there’s only one true religion? Couldn’t there be more than one?

Or couldn’t we just be good, repenting, and prayerful and be good enough?

Healthy Eating Love

Lately, I’ve been eating SUPER healthy. My meals have been basically:

-Breakfast Fiber One’s bran cereal (the yummy one w/clusters of something &raisins), OR yogurt with 2 tbsp. of wheat germ mixed in (it’s high in fiber and has practically no taste!) and half of a grapefruit.

-Lunch- sandwich w/flat whole wheat bread rounds (from ) or Pita chips w/humus, and some sort of veggie.

-Dinner- more veggies, chicken breast or fish, and salad w/ Ken’s light raspberry walnut vinaigrette. 🙂 yum.

But for the last two days, I’ve been kinda bad about sweets. Today I only ate 3 of Pepperidge Farm’s Verona cookies. So good, so far.

BUT (another but..) I have been feeling kind of sick. I don’t think I’m getting enough nutrients or something. Because it’s ridiculous that I’m getting sick from eating healthier than I did.

Then again, I am used to eat sugary things 24/7…
