One of my favorite quotes is from Batman Begins and it says "Why do we fall Bruce? So we can learn to pick ourselves up again." It has applied to me so many countless times in the past few months, and this is also the same reason I have not updated in a while:) So many things have happened between family, friends, school, courage, strength, weakness, pain and most of all happiness.
To begin, my parents returned home from their much needed Cancun trip, and I finished my last days at lagoon.

Three days after my parents returning, me and my four other awesome friends left for the happiest place on earth! DISNEYLAND! Many of who read this probably have heard already so much about this trip. We had an amazing time. We crunched into Kasie's PT cruiser and hit the road driving from 8PM to 4AM to Anaheim, California! We stayed down the road from Disneyland at a hotel Kasie's uncle was so awesome to get us for free, and then ran down to Disneyland for two days! It was hardly busy at all, zipped through lines pretty fast never waiting longer than twenty minutes. Brandon (aka Nods) hadn't ever been to the magical place so we had a lot of fun showing him around and taking him on the rides. The whole group was amazing to go on this trip with. Our third day was a Sunday, and we took a nice rest and went to Huntington Beach. We went to a little restaurant called Ruby's Diner and had an awesome waitress names Jessica that was the coolest waitress ever, and I highly recommend their burgers. [Even if you don't eat them! they are the tastiest burgers I've ever had!] The beach was so beautiful, we took a lot of pictures. We spent the drive home stopping at some cool places. We stopped at Buffalo Bills and went on their Desperado roller coaster which was cool, though being all Ride Supervisors from Lagoon we all were a little scared at the conditions of the coaster and its operators...:#!

November came and went, and December hit like a Snow storm, quite literally. We got tons of snow, and it was tons of fun. I love snow because its so beautiful, and just watching it makes you feel warm inside. My amazing family came over for Christmas and I feel so incredibly blessed to have every single one of them in my life! They each have something amazing that they bring to our family, and I love each one of them! Now its the year 2009...I have started my new calling with my ward, started a new semester, and had a fun birthday with all of my friends. I am so grateful to have all the happy times I have had, because they way they make me feel is ten times better than all the bad that happens in the day and age. I know that I am truely blessed.

Well, this week has been crazy fun. There was a lot of homework, but a lot of friends also as my best friend Jessica got married to our friend Russell. The brotherhood was all home and present, and many of our other friends were there that hadn't been seen for a long time. Though several were very missed.

I returned to work for the weekend to start the Frightmares season! It was very spookie, and very wet after being rained on all Saturday! The family was then down for conference weekend. I really enjoyed President Monson's talk in the Sunday morning session when he spoke about living for today. He talked about forgetting yesterday and living for today for the tomorrows are only determined by our today. It reminds me of a quote that I was once given:
"This the the beginning of a new day. god has given me this day to use as I will, I can waste it or use it for good, but what I do today is important because I am exhanging a day of my life for it. When tomorrow comes today will be gone forever leaving in its place something I have traded for it. I want it to be a gain and not a loss, good not evil, success not failure. In order that I shall not regret the price I have paid for it. Today I will keep my eyes on my ultimate goal: exaltation."
I have had so much fun, though I found myself at the beginning of the week with NO voice quite suddenly.

Well, the number four season at Lagoon is almost over and a lot of our wonderful internationals are leaving for home :( I will miss them so much. They are such beautiful people, and they helped us out A LOT this year. This is Yulianna she always worked in my area along with Eleanora and Dimitar. This was their last day and me and Jen went to go say goodbye to them. I would thank them for everything they did this summer. They were some of the hardest workers, and yet they always seemed to make my day better just by talking to me. Dimitar taught me some Bulgarian. To my Bulgarian friends "Lipsvash Mi!"
