Well It's official! I have 21 days left of being here in Seaside, until I return home! Wow, just yesterday it sure felt that I just got here and met my now All Star Family. Wow, I would have never thought I'd have a family. But it sure has been a crazy adventure so far. I am working hard and am doing pretty fantastic! I surely do feel saddened that we all have to leave. But we can't stay here forever. It's good to be realistic about stuff like that.

So amongst all my hard work here in Seaside I still have my life back at home. I am a student at Western Michigan University.GO BRONCOS It's pretty awesome. As who I am I have always been super duper busy with stuff. But still have managed to keep a social life :) I am on the campus colorguard. (You know the flag spinners that you see at parades and football games) I am highly involved with many student run organizations, I am going to be joining a music fraternity next semester. Phi Mu Alpha. I miss singing, so I can't wait to become involved. But as an All Star, we do year round work for advocation! I can't wait to go back home and use what I have learn to still be involved with the system. So hopefully I can put my skills and talents to work and help out!

Well other than that fun stuff, I had a wonderful day today. I went kayaking with some fellow All Stars and Steve. A few weeks ago I hurt my shoulder so I haven't been able to do much, So today it was super nice to get out and have some more good old bonding time. Steve and I had a wonderful time talking about lot's of stuff. It sure is going to really sadden me when I have to leave. He is pretty awesome! Other than that it has been quite an experience, I don't regret any of it. I have a lot of work to get done, so I am off to go to work land!

Question of the day!

Do you have any inspirations?

Of course I do! I have many inspirations out there. Just to give a shout out to the following people! (I apologize for forgetting people, honest) My Rex Family, you have taught me so well, and you have helped me tremendously on this journey of life. My Colorguard Coach, you have not only taught me what I know today in regards to colorguard, but you aspire me to do better. My friends You all know who you are and you all know that I don't like to pick and choose. So you are all my friends for a reason. My youtube community/fans. You guys are awesome! Random people that I have met that show kindness. It shows there are good people in this world and we're here for a reason. Josh Shipp. I have taken your slogan "Bitter or better" and used it to help me when I am at moments of weakness.

Last but not least: My New FosterClub Family for helping me through this all and making this experience, an experience never to forget. I would have never thought in a million years, that I would have an actual family. I have the most amazing group of people that a person could ever ask for. until next time:
