Anniversary


Today is my grandfather on my mother's side, birthday and he would have been 91 today if he was still alive. He was an amazing man who really inspired all those around him. He was a fighter thorought all of his life. He fought in WWII, he fought many different types of cancers, had 4-5 heart attacks and a stroke. He passed away five years ago in April, a few days before I graduated High School. He was a strong believer in getting a education and learning as much as you can. He also loved to read, although I don't know if he did as much as I did of course. He was one of my greatest heroes, I always have looked up to him. I always felt really close to him, despite the age difference, I felt like I could confide in him no matter what. I will always remember him!!!

Shall I Compare Thee To A Summers Day?

This is a sonnet that I have always loved since I started reading from Shakepeare, it was the first one that I had to memorize and have had it memorized for the most part since. So I thought that I would share it with you!! 


Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
 Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
 Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
 And summer's lease hath all too short a date:
 Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
 And often is his gold complexion dimmed,
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance, or nature's changing course untrimmed:
 But thy eternal summer shall not fade,
 Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow'st,
. Nor shall death brag thou wander'st in his shade,
 When in eternal lines to time thou grow'st,
 So long as men can breathe, or eyes can see,
 So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.

New Place

Sorry its been so long since I have updated my blog, its been crazy here! I have been loving my job at Smash Burger, which is awesome! I get to work with great people including my sister Cali and her BF Roman, who is one of the sweetest guys!!! I have just found a new place to live, and I love living there so far. I have some great roomies, a great ward (from what I hear), and great environment. No more basement apt living YAhooo!!!! At least for right now anyway, I feel tired of living in basements, its good to live in a real house with a room on the main floor. Here are a few insights that I have gathered from yesterday!!! I was studying from the New Testament, in John 13 I believe, and it was talking about the symbolism with Mary washing his feet and with the Hosanna shout. As I have been studying the Old and New Testament you can see how much symoblism focuses on Christ and his purpose and mission here on earth. Which was for our sakes, because of His love for us all. I am dearly so grateful for all that He has done and will do. I am amazed by how great life is, when we look all around us by the astounding miracles that we are surrounded by that testify of the atonement and of Christ and His astounding love for us!!!
