Today I woke up at noon.
This is crazy for me.
I haven't done this since I was a sophomore in college.

Don't worry...
It's only because I have jipped my usual sleeping routine.
Call me old fashioned, but I love going to bed early and waking up early.

During this Christmas break, I have consistently gone to bed at 4am.

Life is interesting now-a-days.
Here's a couple things scheduled to happen in my life for the 2012 year:

Don't get too excited.  It's definitely not a vacation.
I'm doing humanitarian work all summer long.
Remember how I teach nutrition in Jr. High?
(Maybe I haven't mentioned this, but I do)
Well I'm going to be teaching nutrition to Fijian women and children.
And I'm connecting this experience with my thesis for grad school.
Did I mention I'm a grad student?
So...... I'm going to be fundraising the shiz out of these next 6 months. 
I'll keep you up to date, cuz I will be creating a separate blog to inform people on what exactly I'm doing...

Well we will see.  Fingers crossed...
My sister, Rauni, is randomly moving to Moscow in a couple days.
Listen to how cool she is:
She is going to teach 3-5 year olds english through this really cool program.  She is going into Elem Education, so it's the perfect experience for her. 

After looking into flight costs, I discovered it's about the same to fly to NY, then London, then Moscow.  So I decided I'm doing everything in my power to go pick my baby sister up.  She's done in June, and I'm done teaching then too.  Me and Mandie are DYING to go, and stay with her in her flat.  The only hotels we will need will be in London because I have friends in NY.  By that time, Rauni will be an old pro in Moscow and will show us a good time.

Do you think I'm crazy yet?
Here are some of my goals for the new year:

Make my job full time.
Move out of my parents house.
Pray that the car since I've had since I was 15 won't die.
Raise at least 3,000 dollars.
Really go to the gym, and make it a habit.
Read my scriptures, and like it.

 I want to take a picture like this


 Words to live by

 New Years...

  Fun right? Besties
