Real Quick.

First of all, I love watching Re-runs of Glee :] It makes me  happy! I was disappointed in this last episode so I needed something to cheer me up!
Second thing, I've been playing around with the design of my blog and I still feel like an idiot. but oh well :)
Third thing, I like working out in the dark.. why? You may ask.. I have no idea :)

Love you all,
Peace & Blessings.

& here we go again.

    First off, I just need to express how much I love my job. I sometimes feel like I have the best job ever, yes... there are those days that are super draining, but its seriously ALL worth it. I work at The Learning Center where I'm able to interact with disabled children. I specifically work with one autistic child. It's so hard to sometimes understand the way he thinks and why he does the things he does. But every day is something new, I'm never bored and believe me.. something exciting always happens!
video     There's this one kid there who I have just fallen in love with! (not real real love you freaks) but he has down syndrome, and is just so adorable. We were riding in the van to go to community (Reeds Dairy) and he started singing to me, it was so adorable. Eventually I started singing with him :) best day so far! Then the next time I was working we all went to the park and as I was swinging he came up to me and started signing again! and held out his hand and grabbed my hand and in the middle of the playground started slow dancing with me... haha what a charmer eh? I loved it! I love these kids so much, and I leave work feeling so accomplished knowing that I helped them in some way that day that will help them have better skills, no matter what it may be.
    (This is my friend.. singing to me :] )


So now you know about my job :) The job in which I love! If you ever have the chance to learn more about a person with a disability, or have the chance to work with them, dont pass it up. It is amazing what they can teach you :)
Peace & Blessings :)

Shake it off & take a step up.

    So on Thursday night I went to Pocatello for a Sara Bareilles concert & oh my gosh, it was sooo worth the drive and 12 dollars :) She is seriously so talented! One thing I really enjoyed about it was that it was just in like a ballroom/gym. So they were on this little tiny stage, it was great. At first we didn't have front row ( as in standing next to the railing) but thenn... these creepers started talking to us and said "well hey, you guys are short, take our spots" :) it pays to be short people! So Maggie McClure is who opened for Sara Bareilles, talk about the cutest little thing ever! I really love her music, I bought a shirt from her and her CD, definitely check her stuff out... except, she was a little frantic when signing autographs and accidently signed her name on the chest, i put on the shirt the next day and was like... grrrrreat! haha. Then the beautiful Sara Bareilles was up! I knew it was
going to be a good show when they started out playing "You make my dreams come true" Absolutely LOVE that song :) She put on a great show, I couldn't stop smiling, although she does enjoy using the "S" word (<< that was funny to typ) and the "F" word every so often, she super funny and reminded me of Hayley Reese because she loves to make awkward moments :) It was fabulous. I've been gradually posting videos on  my facebook, so you can check those out. I'm so glad I was able to go to this concert, definitely one of the best.
I was able to go with Courtney Williams and her friend MiMi Fetzer... i think thats her last name haha, anyways we went to Buddy's before and that was a great experience. We talked about a lot of great things :) I love girl time haha.
NEXT TOPIC!
So church today, was really really good!
 A guy gave a talk on adversity. and why we have it in our lives. He started telling us that we need to stop wishing our life away and waiting for the next best thing, we need to live our lives right now to the fullest! and find the "joy" in our life ( i've already found my JOY) but anyways, he then began to read a story about this boy who said " man.. i can't wait utnil im out of boy scouts, i wan to be in high school like my brother and have a car" then he said " man i can't wait until i'm out of high school and go to college, then i can have my own car and wont have to listen to my parents, man i cant wait until im out of college and on my mission... blah blah blah" you get the jist of it. so in the end the boy is now and old geezer and says " man.. i wish i was a boy scout again, those were the best days of my life" and thats so true, if we're waiting around of opportunities to arise, we are missing out on all of the ones that are passing by right in front of our faces. So think about your life, are you happy? If so, keep it going my friends :) If not, do something that will make you happy, it's your life, do with it what you may :)
Peace & Blessings
