2010 Recap

In 2010, I...
  • I became a citizen of the United States and words can't even express the amazing experience it was. 
  • My boyfriend and I hit our 5 year anniversary of dating. yes.5.years. Where's the ring right?
  • Took summer classes so that I could finish my nursing pre-requisites quicker. 
  • Boyfriend and I got a puppy, an American Bulldog who we named Puma. 
  • Was introduced to the Hunger Game Series. Seriously, if you haven't read these books you need to. 
  • I had my 21st birthday. It wasn't as exciting as when i turned 15 and had my Quinceanera, or when I turned 16 and could drive, but hey it was another year of life that Heavenly Father gave me and I am thankful for each and every day I'm given.
  • Eclipse, the movie, came out and loved it so much.
  • I was accepted into the Nursing Program at my school.
  • I started blogging again and have met so many new people in just the past 2 months. i love you all and treasure your friendship.
  • Got straight A's fall semester.
Has been the hardest month because I experienced my first lost. 
I lost my best friend to cancer.  
I think of her daily and I know she's with me. 
I also realized the love that's out there in this blogging community as you guys held my hand through this difficult time. You can't even imagine how much I appreciated your kind and helpful words.
December has also been a good month because well, we had Christmas! 
And I also received my first blogger award ever which made me jump with joy. 

Good Bye 2010,
Thanks for the memories.
