Lets Play Catch Up Shall We?

my oh my, has it been a while since I have written in here.... Poor baby has been neglected for almost more than half a year now. Whooo... let's catch on up and get on track. [Im going to try to be better at this.]
As for the past while that I haven't written on here, a lot has happened in my life. Starting back at the beginning of this year, January 2012. Since the first of this year, all of my friends have been quickly trickling off onto their missions. This is quite a bitter sweet feeling I tell you what. As Ive come to realize as this year has gone on though, having their example and their love from afar, has been one of life's greatest blessings at this age. My life has done a 180 degree turn because of these guys, because I am inspired and encouraged to be the best me I can be! As for the UVU dance team, we went to Daytona Beach, Florida in April to compete for the NDA Nationals, where we placed fourth in our division 1 category. Not only did we dance on a stage, that was legit, on the beach, but because it was so hot and humid outside, the floor of the stage was literally melting into the ground... not good news. It was such a fun trip, regardless of the melting pot of stage, we stayed out till two in the morning playing pranks on  drunk people walking down the pier, being tortured with the adams family game, and getting a good laugh at my black lady impressions. I thought this trip was going to be nothing short of the bad, hot burning place down there, but it turned out to be one of the best vacations Ive been on! Now that the new UVU season has come to be, we have a team of 18 girls, mostly all rookies and I was elected in as president this year. I can't wait to start up this year and get to not only make a fool of myself with these girls, but also make memories that will be with me forever. Valley girls comin atcha. Miss Pleasant Grove was in March, and that was so much fun! I got to compete with some of my best friends from high school, and learn about politics and really learn what I have a passion for in this life. I received third attendant and couldn't have been more grateful! We have had to do a load of parades this summer, but our float is bomb, we win every time and we have the best time playing "your team". There's always beautiful people to see there. As for the present day, I love life. It is beautiful how everything happens for a reason, and things are starting to take their place in life, just like ive always been told it would. I recently received my patriarchal blessing this past weekend and what an incredible thing that is to have in my life. Ive never felt so much joy and overwhelming feelings as I did then, and now I couldn't be happier, my life has meaning and there is hope for me in the future! (cheers all around for that). Every couple of weeks I get a special letter in the mail, that is one of god's smallest and simplest miracles, and it gives me that little push to keep on going. I think ive found love in this...? I guess only time will tell! As for now, life is beautiful and kind. It's incredible how much you grow up after a year of college already and are continuing each and everyday. Here's to another year of life, and enjoying its blessings!

So it has been quite awile since I last wrote on here... it seems like years but tonight in the given situation im in, I feel like this is the one place where I can express all the feelings going on in my mind at this very moment and get it all out.
If you have ever felt this pain before, feel free to throw your hands up in the air and just sway back and forth with me like they do in concerts when theyre really feelin the music.

I started writting all my feelings down and this blog post was crazy. I found this song that will sum up just about what im feeling at this point. T swift take it away....

"Dear John"

Long were the nights when
My days once revolved around you
Counting my footsteps
Praying the floor won’t fall through, again
My mother accused me of losing my mind

But I swore I was fine

You paint me a blue sky
And go back and turn it to rain
And I lived in your chess game
But you changed the rules everyday
Wonderin’ which version of you I might get on the phone, tonight
Well I stopped pickin’ up and this song is to let you know why

Dear John, I see it all now that you're gone

Don't you think I was too young

To be messed with
The girl in the dress

Cried the whole way home, I should've known.

Well maybe it’s me
And my blind optimism to blame
Or maybe it’s you and your sick need
To give love and take it away

And you'll add my name to your long list of traitors who don't understand
And I'll look back in regret how I ignored when they said

'Run as fast as you can’

Dear John, I see it all now that you're gone

Don't you think I was too young

To be messed with
The girl in the dress

Cried the whole way home

Dear John, I see it all now it was wrong
Don’t you think nineteen’s too young
To be played by your dark, twisted games
When I loved you so, I should've known.

You are an expert at sorry
And keeping the lines blurry
Never impressed by me acing your tests
All the girls that you run dry have tired lifeless eyes
Cause you burned them out

But I took your matches
Before fire could catch me
So don’t look now
I’m shining like fireworks
Over your sad empty town

Dear John, I see it all now that you're gone

Don't you think I was too young

To be messed with
The girl in the dress

Cried the whole way home

I see it all now that you're gone

Don't you think I was too young

To be messed with
The girl in the dress

Wrote you a song, you should’ve known.

You should’ve known
Don’t you think I was too young
You should’ve known.

The best kind of blessings.

It's amazing how life's smallest and simplest miracles are some of the greatest miracles life has to offer. These last couple days have truly been an eye opener for me but I have come to realize all it takes is faith in your savior and believing he gave you these trials for you because your the only one strong enough to handle it and make it out on top. Life get's very overwhelming at times, being an 18 year old girl brings the stress of over thinking and analyzing everything for "secret meaning", getting your life in line for the coming year of college and figuring out where you want life to take you, relying solely on yourself for the things your parents use to provide for you, getting a job to support yourself through adult life. It all just seems to pack on and the stress and anxiety weigh us down to the point of breaking. I have reached this point in my life for quite sometime it feels like and its almost a feeling of suffocating but your almost to the point of breaking free and shedding away all the negative. This sunday I was blessed to have a priesthood blessing, to comfort me in my time of need. The impact it had on me during was absolutely amazing, it felt as though all my worries and pain had just been lifted from my life and I was getting a chance to start over with more strength to carry on. Im so grateful for having that available to me when I truly need a boost most, Im grateful for the greatest best friend being there for me, and crying as much if not more than me letting me know she cares the world for me. It's amazing how one little thing can change your life completely and give you hope to continue on. Sometimes, we think we can do it alone, but other times, it's okay to ask for help and let someone hold our pain for just a little bit. What a beautiful thing it is.

This is for you.

I never like people upset or hurt and I especially hate when people are angry with me or are offended by something having to do with me. As I thought this was somewhat of a good trait I had, it seems as though it's digging me a hole I just seem to keep falling deeper and deeper in. I get taken advantage of more than one person should, and I can't seem to understand why. I can't handle toying with my emotions anymore because they know exactly what sets me off, the ones who know exactly how to manipulate a situation to make me always on the end of the stick where I am left feeling guilty and alone. I have a hard time standing up for myself and not letting myself get pushed to the ground.Most people know I would do anything and everything for anyone at any time of the day no matter what it is,if they need me, I will be the one to be there for them no doubt. Im not one to always look on the negative side of life that's why I want to make sure everyone is happy and feeling welcome in this world, I want to fix any problem at that moment so there is no more pain. Pain is my worst enemy. I don't like feeling it and I can't handle watching others be a part of pain in any sort of form and I guess that might be why I do my best to avoid it all in a nut shell.

    It's time for a change, it's time for me to stand on my own two feet and know that I WILL be okay no matter the outcome, that this has only made me the strongest self I can be. You win some, you loose some and what's supposed to happen will happen. I am out of high school and it's time for me to grow up and take initiative for myself. I have also come to realize that all this time I have been on my knees begging him to just ease the pain, to help get me through, that I have had it this whole time I just have been looking for it in the wrong place. He gave me by far the most amazing best friends any girl could ever ask for. The one's who will talk you through the dating world, lift you up when your falling down, take you for coke runs just to let out a little steam, jam to katy perry and justin bieber just because it makes you happy, encourage you to go for what you want in this world and never give up, never make you feel less than you should, take pictures that make you both look like youve had one too many fast food runs, and just be your other half when you really need someone to take your pain for just a little bit. I also have my family who has always been here for me, although we don't get along all the time and they have made me come to realize alot lately, I know they love me unconditionally and will be here for me through thick and thin. Also for Ari and Sean, always given me a home away from home and taken me under their wing, teaching me about the newlywed life and the things to prepare for to be an adult. There my older siblings from another mother and father and well all that complicatedness. After a lot of thought in all this lately I feel like this blog should be dedicated to all those who have really, genuienly made me feel like im a part in one way or another and I would like to thank them all right now.

Just A New Chapter In This Crazy Thing We Call Life :)

As of June 3rd, twenty-eleven, I Chelsi Ann, graduated from your one and only Pleasant Grove High School. P.s graduation is by far thee longest ceremony I think I have ever sat through, and with an attention span like a 2 year old, it really took a toll on me. Talk about the most crazy rollercoaster ride of emotions. When I try to comprehend this all, it's come to a bittersweet feeling. I am very happy to see what is in store for me in my future, who's to say what could happen in the next year of my life, but im ready for whatever it may bring. Ive been having slight anxiety attacks over thinking I have to "act" like an adult, although I look nothing like one, I have some growing and maturing to do... Thank the heavens I am living at home first year, i'd be an emotional basketcase being on my own... oh deary. It's hard though, to know you may never see some of those people anymore. I will miss the unwanted " public displays of affection" in the hallways, jammed lockers a number of jackets that could probably save the whole school in a snow storm, never wanting to go to class but rather to float around and be the social butterfly.
You never really realize how many people influence your life throughout high school until its come to an end. I had the most amazing experiences in high school, and so many memories were made. Enjoy being young and being in high school, it all may seem hard and dramatic now, but real life will be so much different. Im so grateful for my friends and family who supported me through it all and I love them very much. :)

Me and Allie Howe like to be cute and match dresses or any other clothing that we might have that matches. Yes we are that cool :)

Best Friends are what have gotten me by, we are best friends by choice, but sisters by fate. I don't know how I got so lucky to be blessed with amazing friends, girls like these are hard to find. I love them all so very much!

Thankfulness of the day:

So it wasnt until the senior all nighter that I realized how much I truly worship this stuff. They had straight water... did they really think I was going to last till 4 a.m without a coke to keep me going? Puhhh lease! Think again pals. No wonder im still trying to catch up on energy. Coke completes my life, and makes any sort of ache go right away. I've even got the little tike attatched to it. whoops.

Hero of the day:
Janalee Jones:
My little seductive dancer. :) Jan earns the title of " Doctor Life". She knows anything and everything about what to do and not to do in life, her advice is basically the only reason I haven't been put into a crazy home. She knows exactly what to say and when to say it. I have never had someone sit and listen for hours on end and remember exactly what you said in that amount of time. She also is kind of a pretzel, she can do crazy things with her legs behind her head, but hey she will be makin big bucks of  that talent one day. She is an absolutely beautiful dancer, you never take your eyes off her when you watch her dance. She has been the greatest best friend anyone could ever ask for, I am so amazed with everything she has accomplished and she is going to go so far in life. I love my baby jay. :)

Sunday, May 29, 2011


So for quite sometime now, I have been a blogg stalker. I guess you could basically call me the "blogg creeper", name still pending. After endless days of reading Megan Abel, Aubrey Herrera, and the Rockstar Diary blogs, I have felt inspired to put on my big girl pants and make one of my own. With life changing so quickly in this next week, I have come to realize many things. Thing number one, its time to choose to be happy and stay that way, time to break the chains that bind you and let happiness find you. Everything happens for a reason, and trials make you stronger, the lord throws things at you because he knows you are the only one strong enough to handle it and make it through no doubt. Adult life,.... here I come.

Thankfulness of the day:

what would we do without love? many say we are far too young to know what love feels like, but who's to say? The feelings you have when you truly love anyone, family, friends, significant others, are those feelings which can never be replaced. Love is the ultimate high next to being happy and can be achieved anytime of the day. Spread the love everyday, overuse the words I Love You, and make everyone feel they have a purpose.

Hero of the day:

Brooklin "Nicole" Frampton.
Ohhhh this little phillie.... I aspire to be her when I grow up. She is an absolutely gorgeous dancer and beautiful girl. Brooke is a babe magnet and boys just come runnin. She recently discovered some unpleasant news about her knee, this would never stop this girl, she would continue to dance even if the room was on fire. Ive never seen someone have such a positive attitude about sucha thing before but it was so inspiring to keep pushing forward no matter the cause. Brooklin is my hero, being my sister on drill this year, we found we are the same girl, I was just stuck in a shorter body and blonde hair. She secretly has a black girl side to her, and in a dance battle she beat them all out. Whip yer hurrr brookey. I love Brooke with all my heart and am eternally grateful for her friendship and love.
Watch her dance, she will make you cry.

Everything happens for a reason. Smile and remember life is what you make it, your beautiful no matter what.
