events that defined 2009

In 10th grade, I started debate. After Christmas break, Ms. Hyer would have us write down a list of all of the big current events that happened the year before and then all of the big events that happened in our own lives. After we wrote it all down, we would have to give a speech on the events that defined our year.
Since i'm no longer in high school, i wanted to keep that tradition alive. I always thought it was a nice way to sum up the year.


in january there was Jr Prom at WX with Ryan. It was our first real dance together as a couple. way fun.

in April, we went to WX's Senior Ball. My dad was the DJ and it was at the capitol. It was the best dance EVER! thanks Ryan!

WX homecoming in September... yeah thats right... i totally super-seniored it.

I got the T.H. Bell Scholarship which was super exciting!
I started an internship at IHC as an EKG tech. I learned a TON. and made a bunch of new friends.
Finished my last year of debate and as Debate VP.
Won 1st in state at HOSA and had the opportunity to go to nationals. I wasn't able to go because of my job..
And of course, GRADUATION!!!!!!!!

I had the BEST summer job EVER this year! I worked for Lagoon entertainment and LOVED IT! I really hope i get the chance to work there again!

and then for frightmares, I was a Witch! so much fun!

After summer ended...
I got my 1st apartment

and started college at USU!

oh yeah, and I LOVE my roommates.
seriously. i love them. thanks Bonnie, Rebecca, Brittney and Mckayla, you girls are great!

My family moved in October! we have always lived in the same house in kaysville. so it was hard to imagine moving. but i love our new home!

I got to be there when my aunt Suzanne delivered her second baby, Oakley. It was an amazing experience. Thanks for letting me be there Suzanne!

In may, Kirsty Sargaent passed away. She fought a really tough battle with cancer. I am so happy I got to be a part of her life. I was able to help her out for a summer when she was receiving treatment. She was an incredible woman and anyone who knew her was forever changed for the better. we love you kirsty. thanks for the memories. thanks for sharing your love and life with us.

November. MY great Grandma Carma died. I had the opportunity to get her ready after she died. It was a special experience to have and i will always remember that.

and in december Scott left us. Scott was one of the most special people i have ever met. He was a friend to all and we all loved him. even my cousins remember him playing games with them. he was such a kind and gentle friend. I was just reading through all of the cards and notes that he wrote me over the years and it brought back so many happy memories. he will be missed greatly. i love you scott.
