So... this is me.

I guess you could say this is my natural habitat since I love geology. 

I was born and raised in Kirkwood, MO and grew up down the street from one of my best friends in the whole world, Claire.

Not only is she prettier than me, but she loves her Savior so much and is basically my sister. I would kill for this girl and go to the moon and back if I had to. She's done so much for me and I love her to pieces. 

My two goofy looking nerds/best buds are Bradley and Ross, and they rank in this order as well. Bradley is basically a cartoon and Ross is a bean sprout and I absolutely love them both. I spent basically my whole junior and senior year screwing around with these guys playing super smash bros., rock band, and taking hikes around a local park with them (plus or minus a few nerds).

I met Bradley and Ross in band class. I actually hated Ross when we first met in our French Horn section and we really didn't get along, but through the years we've bonded and become good buds. Bradley is an incredibly strange and very caring person. He doesn't care a lot of stuff other than his family, his dog Lena, music and his friends and he really is a great friend. I'll never forget the first time I hung out with them; we played tennis at the park and listened to the Tron: Legacy soundtrack in the dark in Bradley's basement while playing ping pong. I knew I wanted to be friends with these guys since that day and I'm really lucky they randomly called me that day to hang out.

High school was full of a lot of ups and downs and I really enjoyed the experiences I had, but family life was a little rough at times to say the least. These guys kept my alive. Influences were also a big thing. I'm a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and everyone (except Claire) at my high school would do drugs/drink so it was pretty hard to work around that, especially since Ross and Brad did that stuff occasionally too. Just remember kids, BUGS NOT DRUGS. Nature and being alive is far cooler than any high you can get from weed or alcohol so STAY CLEAN. My life would be so different if I did all the dumb crap some of my high school friends did and are still doing in college. 

ANYWAYS, I'm now attending Brigham Young University after years of hoping, wishing and praying. 

This is the amazing view of Squaw Peak outside my dorm room. I could stare at these mountains all day.

I have a couple of amazing roommates and a bunch of really freaking tough classes that make me want to rip my hair out, but all in all, this has been an amazing experience and I'm so glad I came to BYU. I've met some amazing people that I hope I'm friends with for a long time.

Up to date to now, I've recently been called to serve in the Philippines Bacolod Mission speaking Hiligaynon(Ilonggo), reporting July 27th, 2016 to the Provo MTC. I'm so blessed for the opportunity to serve the Lord and spread his message of love to the people that I am called to serve.
