"This Christmas, mend a quarrel. Seek out a forgotten friend. Dismiss suspicion and replace it with trust. Write a letter. Give a soft answer. Encourage youth. Manifest your loyalty in the word and deed. Keep a promise. Forget a grudge. Forgive an enemy. Apologize. Try to understand. Examine your demands on others. Think first of someone else. Be kind. Be gentle. Laugh a little more. Express your gratitude. Welcome a stranger. Gladden the heart of a child. Take pleasure in the beauty and wonder of the earth. Speak your love and then speak it
-President Howard W. Hunter

Being involved with student council I was strongly encouraged to attend the Junior prom even though I'm a senior. The monday before prom I decided to go but I didn't have a date. Mason, a close friend, was kind enough to agree to go with me. Next, I had to find a dress. Why did I wait til last minute to decide to go? I'll never know but luckily I was able to borrow a dress from Lynlee that she had worn in high school. A group of friends and Mason and I went to F to have sushi and then headed to the dance, I enjoyed myself and had a blast.

A lot has happend in the last 6 months. Summer break with trips including EFY and family reunions, my first college class (english 101), the first 9 weeks of my senoir year, with 2 AP classes (which i got all A's), another season of Varsity soccer (only 2 wins this year), my first homecomming dance, Junior Prom again (Pics to follow) and much more. I still want to do everything. I am the senior class Vice President, the Historian of National Honor Society, I'm volenteering at aim (an after school program for at risk elementary children), Jazz choir (also after school) and voice lessons. With all of this I am still able to have fun :)
