“What’s new, Scooby Doo?”

So many new things have been happening in my life, it almost feels “normal”. Well, I’m definitely not normal and I’ve never had a normal life, so I guess I don’t really know what that word means; therefore I probably shouldn’t use it. Hehe.

I have been trying grow up and move on with my life a little bit. (So far the growing up part hasn’t worked out so well…) My sophomore year of high school, I took driver’s ed, just like any other teen. I graduated and was legal tor drive. But because of some meds I was on, how yucky I felt, and how unsafe I felt I would be as a driver, I decided that I shouldn’t drive. And we all know that because my heart transplant changed everything, Tuesday I went to the DMV office and took the written drivers test. Guess what?! I passed! I can legally drive (with a licensed adult), again! unnamed (2)








Also, I think back in August, I started my application for school in Salt Lake. I finally submitted it a couple weeks ago. The essay portion was killer! Thankfully, I have an awesome sister, cousin, and mom who were all very willing to help edit and critique them for me. Thanks again, guys!

This came in my email a few days ago:


I have had some time to think about it and I can tell you that it hasn’t really sunk in that I’m leaving in two months. I guess I better just start getting ready to go and hopefully my brain will register what is happening.


So, here’s to my sorta-growing-up-a-few-years-late life changes!

  1. Woohoo! Congratulations!! Wait…does that mean I’m supposed to grow up sometime, too!? Dang! I was hoping to avoid that another 20 years or so… =/

  2. I’m so proud of you, Sweetheart. Sometimes these things just take time, and now you’ve been given a whole lifetime of it. I love you.
