Just a Hop, Skip, and a Jump away..Right?

In today's world people are extremely to busy, always. I have become one of those people. I shall warn you now nothing good will come from reading this post except maybe a smile to bask in my 17 year old busy pity party. Ahhh. Graduation and the freedom of the summer is coming veryyyy slowly. I feel as if each day gets longer and the hours get shorter. How that is possible I'm not to sure. As many of you don't know, I used to have a lot of free time. I loved my free time and I loved not having a lot to do. I remember as if it was just yesterday..oh wait. It was. Last semester I was living the life. I was taking one college class and the rest were easy classes. I also was jobless. Then I got this amazing and fantastic idea(at the time) to get into an AP Government class second semester along with two online college classes. So I accepted the challenge. Then over Christmas break I got a job! I am now an employee at McAlisters Deli & I love it. It has been such a neat exp…

Making you cry was the best & worst thing I've ever done.

Dearest Francis,
I first want to start off by saying it is very typical of me to do this, and you know that. I have never sat down and told you flat out what an impact you've had on my life. I have not known you for very long at all; two years at most. In those two years you I can admit you've made your impact on Shelby Jean Forsyth. At the moment you probably think that you're making me rebellious when instead, you're making me, more me. The day I made you cry(for reasons only we know) was the worst day of my life. To have to sit there and see you cry partially because of me made me grow up pretty quickly. From that experience I have found out that making you cry has made me the friend I am to you. I could spend hours listening to you ramble on the phone about the various topics we face in our lives. Even though you do 80% of the talking most of the time(haha) I wouldn't trade those memories for anything. We've faced a lot together. You've sat and listened …

"Unification & inspiration through servant leadership"

As delicious chocolate chip cookies are cooling down a bit I thought I'd take a moment to share my thoughts of the day! It can be divided into positives & negatives(like most days).
Negatives:
1. I despise blow drying my hair. I know it may not look as if I have a ton of hair but in all honesty I do. It takes at least 20 minutes which adds up when you do it most days.
2. Cold feet(literally) are no fun. There is very few things I hate and having cold feet ranks pretty high on such a small list.
Positives:
1. I am sooo excited about the direction SGA is headed. We finally are seeming to get things together and I am thrilled. I am learning to love the members more and more each time we accomplish something amazing. Today we had a meeting(very, very long meeting) & got through a lot of things. We developed a mission/vision statement for Student Government which is, "Unification and Inspiration through servant Leadership." All of our projects will now be centered around u…

New Year, New Resolutions, Not-so-New bad timing.

Hey everyone!
First off, I'd like to personally welcome 2011 into my dear sweet blog. It's been an amazing 2010 but I am not sad to see it go. In 2011 I have some resolutions, some funny, some serious, but in all I hope to improve myself as a person. So once again it's time for you to sit back, relax, giggle a little, and enjoy yourself a bit as I spill my new found desires for 2011!

1. Be more spontaneous. If you know me, you know I'm pretty set how my life goes. I like schedules, I like knowing what I'm doing, when I'm doing it, and how long it will take me. I am a firm believer in a planner and most anyone could tell you I live out of mine. I want to change this..some. I am not wanting to forget when I have test or when my next doctors appointment is. I do want to do things when I want to, because I want to, and more importantly because I can.

2. I have found that "killing them with kindness" is actually killing me slowly. I tend to care wayyy to muc…
