RIP, Zach Millhouse.

Last Wednesday night, a really great guy was taken to a better place.  Unfortunately, that place isn't with his family, his friends, his girlfriend, or his fellow tribe.  Whether you knew him well or not, Zach Millhouse is going to be extremely missed at Donegal.  I remember all the classes we had together, and what a freaking hilarious guy you were.  You could turn the most boring class ever into a fun one.  Never ever gonna forget, the was seriously one of the best days of my 8th grade year. 

My heart goes out to everyone that was really close or related to Zach. I'll be praying for everyone who was close or related to him, that God would give you the peace and strength to get through the days until we'll all be reunited with Zach again.  I know the hurt of loosing a loved one, and it's near impossible to deal with without a strong community back behind ya.  I'm sure
 he's smiling down at us, seeing how we really do have that here at Donegal.  We showed it last Friday with our sea of green, and we'll continue to show it every day because he had such a big impact on us all.  Zach would be so proud to see our small, little school come together at this time to grieve and remember our favorite memories. I know it's what Zach would wanna see, even though we'd all like him to be here again more than anything.

What I've learned this week is that things disappear quickly.  I know your life may seem really hard, that nothing's going right for you, that everything just sucks sometimes.  But we needa remember to always be grateful for what and who we do have, because God can take them back at anytime.  I think it's safe to say that Zach's taugh us all that this week.  Can't wait to see you tonight Zach, rest easy. <3

New year, new start.

Oh whatta year it's been. I'm not gonna go through and list my every little awesome thing that happened, even I think that's boring. But obviously I've learned alot & had experiences I wouldn't trade for anything in the world. I've learned about myself too, and who the most important people in my life are. I don't have a single regret, and I can't wait for an even better year in 2012. :)

New Year's resolutions are always lame, but I DON'T CARE.

1) Stop worrying about stupid things that don't matter, & just live my life. I've realized that this is so much easier than it sounds, but I'm freaking 17. Why not leave the stress, drama, and anxiety for when I'm older?

2) Get on Facebook less. Kinda relates to #1 :b
3) Have the best summer of my life, and spend as much time as I can with Jenna. I'm gonna miss her more than I even wanna think about right now, so we're gonna go hard this year <3
4) Not fall in love, but find someone that I can be happy with. Why? 'Cause I'm young, & I'm over believing that stuff's actually gonna work right now. When you're in highschool, you shouldn't be finding your soulmate, you should be having fun. :)

5) Keep all my wonderful friends that I have now, get closer to the ones that I don't talk to as much, leave that ones that aren't worth it, & make lots of new ones.

Yup, that's all I can think of right now. So Happy New Year to everyone that blogs or reads this, <3
