What comes next + GREAT news.

For the next few weeks you're going to get lots of talk from me about ME! As I have already announced, I am moving to Utah August 3rd. Although I know this is a good step in my life, I have been a bit concerned that maybe, just maybe, I was making the wrong choice. One thing that scared me the most was leaving my wonderful job, and then moving out to Utah and not being able to find a job at all. Let's face it, Provo is a college town and there are always college kids thirsty for good jobs. I have been silently stressing about it, keeping it under the radar how concerned I was about not being able to find a job. Once I started working two years ago I knew that I would want to work until I started having kids, and from that point decide what I should do from there. Last night I was doing my nightly "creepin" on Facebook and happened to stumble upon a status that made my ears perk up. It said, "If anyone is looking for a job in the Lindon area please let me know," (Or something along those lines). So I looked up how far Lindon is from Provo. The answer I got? 10ish miles. I then proceeded to message Sarah(the wonderful amazing person who made this all possible) and tell her that I was looking for a job. To make a long story short, I ended up writing a resume last night, emailing it to her, she showed it to someone at her work today, I had a phone interview, and got the job with Pinnacle Security! I start August 7th working full time and making good money (much better than the minimum wage I'm used to). I am so blessed! I could not be more grateful and happy at this opportunity. I will be referring to these next few weeks in my blog as "what comes next." I will be sharing with myself and everyone the steps I take on this journey to Utah. This is just the next step in my life and I cannot wait to see what comes next.

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 …
