It's Been a Teenage Dream

Last week marked a milestone in my life...I turned 20!! Now everyone can take me seriously since I'm all grown up, almost.  My actual birthday was pretty uneventful.  I had six hours of class and a fieldtrip scheduled for later in the evening.  This left me with a couple of hours to celebrate with mi amigos. I had been thinking about what I wanted to do and decided that since I hadn't been to the Garden Tomb that I would go as a present to myself.  The Tomb is by far my favorite place in the whole city!! It's so peaceful and beautiful.  It remains fairly untouched.  It is gardens and the Tomb and nothing else.  It is so easy to imagine Christ being there.  My time that I spent there that day are treasured moments that I will not forget.
While I was eating dinner later that night, one of my friends asked what I wanted to accomplish in the next year of my life.  I am sorry to say that I did not have an answer.  I had never really thought about making resolutions at my birthday.  I have thought about it quite a bit since then have come up with a few things that I want to do in the next, so here they are :)

  1. Run a half marathon
  2. Break a bad habit
  3. Become a 'morning person'
  4. Learn to cook better :) 
  5. Attend the temple once a week while I'm at school
  6. Manage my time better
  7. Write in my journal everyday 
  8. Develop my Spanish
  9. Learn to play guitar
  10. Take more pictures!
