It's Official..

I've never been much of a risk-taker. Anyone who has ever known me knows that my life has order and I really like it that way. Recently I have been pondering the next phase of my life. I will finish my AA degree at the end of the fall and the next step was to decide where to go from there. Stay at home? Find a college in Florida? Apply to BYU and try to live out of state? Well, after much prayer and support I have decided the next step on my journey is to move out west. On July 28, 2012 I will begin my 2000+ mile journey to Utah. I could not be more excited and scared at the same time. Basically my whole life I have lived in little 'ole Lake City. I attended elementary school, middle school, high school, and part of college here. This is the place I know, this is the place I will always call home. I have applied to BYU to start in January 2013. I will not find out if I get in until the end of October. Like other Universities, I am not 100% sure to be accepted. I hope and pray that I will, and if I don't I will have to figure out where to go from there. So the plan for now is move out the last week in July, find a job, find an apartment, take my last 3 classes at FGC online, and start my new life. It's not easy thinking about leaving here. My family, my best friends, and my great job are here and leaving that all behind is a big risk for me. I am so excited to see where my life goes. I am putting both feet forward and taking the next steps in my life. I have full faith in where I'm going, and I know that no matter what, as long as I stay close to my Savior everything will turn out the way it is supposed to.

BYU. Westmore. Anxiety. Family. Trusting. MY 5 YEARS IN UTAH.

For me, it’s usually night when all the feels start hitting and I get all sorts of nostalgic. August brings so many challenges for me in many ways. Once August hits it means summer is finally coming to an end and even though I’m usually ready to go back to work, the stress starts to creep in. Going into my 4th year seems bizarre. I don’t feel as if I’m a seasoned teacher, but since I’m not worried about the first day of school I think that says something. August also is the month where 5 years ago I took a big risk and moved to Utah. I left the comfort of my sweet southern home and stepped out on my own. Since 5 years seems like an eternity and a second all at the same time, I decided to write down the 5 most important things that have happened to me since I moved here.
1.Attending and graduating from BYU. I loved my time at BYU. I ran through my experience and I don’t regret that at all. I always knew the college lifestyle wasn’t for me, so getting through it fast was a blessing. I …

A Letter to Asher Rae.

Baby Asher,
Your momma is currently in labor and in a few hours you'll make your grand debut into this world. From the moment I knew you were coming I was in shock and how much my heart could grow. I work with sweet children all day and I love them so much. The love I already have for you is so different. You'll be the first grandchild of my parents, and you'll be my first ever niece. You're coming into a world that is incredibly hard and difficult. With your amazing parents in your life you'll be taught how to be strong and to be valiant in all circumstances. Your dad, my brother, is an excellent human being. He is dedicated, he is a dreamer, he is a hard worker, and he will be the most amazing father. Your mom is so beautiful. She is loving, she is patient, and she loves your dad so much. Your grandma, my mom, is SO excited for you. She will love you and spoil you, but she will also help you when things get hard. Your Grandma Forsyth is a tough woman. The toughes…

Coming to an end.

Considering my last post was in October, this morning I woke up and finally wanted to let the fingers type and do the talking. Since October my life has changed and I have grown so much. I always knew I wanted to be a teacher and I also always knew that I have both of my parents running through my blood. What this means for me is that I have this incredible drive to push myself to limits that haven't been set. My beautiful mother gave me passion for education. She constantly sets the example of the most excellent educator and one day I hope to be as successful as she is and was in the classroom. My mother gave me the realistic expectations that come with teaching, such as not always getting my way or having things work out in the way I would like them to. Bless her soul for being my constant supporter. My father gave me the drive to work hard and to never give up. He works construction and there hasn't been one thing that he hasn't finished once he set his mind to it. He …
