The End

My first year at BYU is now drawing to a close and it has me reminiscing. I've seriously loved this year, I think it's pretty safe to say that it's been the greatest year of my life so far. I'm not big on change, especially drastic permanent ones like this year ending, me flying back to Kentucky, and not being able to see my guy friends again. (and the ones I do see again it'll be 2 years before that happens) That's extremely difficult for me. I've been dreading the end of this semester as soon as we got back from Christmas, which is probably why it's flown by. I haven't done a very good job of recording all of the amazing things that have happened this year so I'm going to attempt to go over a few of my favorites now.
The Keith Urban concert: it was like the 1st week of school and Michelle Metcalf and I got tickets to the concert. We needed one more person and I happened to have Cameron's number so I texted him and he wanted to go. It was so fun! My 1st concert ever and it was the 1st time I really hung out with Cameron. I started dating him like a month later.
The shaving cream war: EPIC to say the least. Tons of us out in a park throwing shaving cream at each other... awesome. Can't say I've ever done anything like that before, although I should have because we used to do it at girls camp but I never wanted to.

Hiking the Y: Cameron invited me to hike the Y the day after the shaving cream war, haha all of these memories are the first 2 weeks. what can I say? we were excited! Anyway, Cameron and I had fun together and later that week he asked me on a date, so I must have done something right that night. It was fun going up there and seeing the city lights then we had to hike down in the dark, that was an adventure!
Floor sleep over: We went up to Kristin's cabin and all hung out. I think this helped so much with the amazing unity that we all have now and I'm so thankful for that. I'm going to miss all the girls!

True Blue: We went and got covered in blue foam! it was so fun! And yes, this is slightly a Cameron memory because we met up there and hung out the whole time. Once again, it was something that I never would have been ok with if I wasn't at BYU.

Corn maze: a huge group of us went up to Thanksgiving point and went through the corn maze. It was amazingly fun! This sticks out to me because Cameron and I started officially dating a few days later. (I'm not meaning to tell the story of my relationship but those are the memories that stick out to me.)

Halloween: We got the amazing idea to dress up as the Scooby Doo Mystery Gang and it was a huge hit! I've never enjoyed Halloween so much! Random people were coming up and taking pictures with us because we looked so good. (Not to brag or anything)

BYU vs Utah game: The 1st time I really truely got into a football game. It was thanksgiving weekend and I had hurried back from my Granny's house so that I could make it to the game. We ended up winning in overtime! It was so exciting!! After the game a small, really random, group of people went to Bridget's Aunt's house and watched a movie in the movie theater room in her basement.
My birthday: It was a really good day. That night Cameron, Colton, Bridget, and I went bowling and I broke 100 AND won! When we got back we played Disney Scene It and I won at that too!

Kristin's birthday: We had a surprise party for Kristin! She had no idea! It eventually turned into a crazy dance party... so great...
Cameron's mission call: It was a thing that I was both looking forward to and slightly dreading. Where in the world was Cameron going to go? ... without me. selfish, yes, but honest. He got called to Curitiba, Brazil! His call has completely changed our relationship in ways that we never thought possible, for the better. I'm so excited for him and yes, I'm going to write, and no, I'm not going to wait.

Valentine's Day: I've never enjoyed it until this year when I got a dozen roses from my boyfriend! :) not to be superficial or anything, just having someone on that day is so much better than being single like I've always been.

Festival of Colors: It was a Hindu festival where you throw a bunch of colored corn starch at everyone, it's amazingly fun, it's just really hard to breath for a minute when the colors first go up. It gets everywhere too, but it's so worth it!

This is just a few of my memories.... and this is a REALLY long post. Oh well, not very many people actually read it anyway :) this is more for me to help me remember things anyway. Gosh, I loved my freshman year!
