Loving Life the Way It Is

So, i have come to the conclusion that i am a person who has always desparately grasped for a bit of control in different aspects of my life. Whether it be in my acting, my love life, or anything else, i have always wanted that sense of control over something. I was cleaning out my room the other day and found a saying that i had written down long ago. It says, "God, Grant me the serenity to accept the things i cannot change; Courage to change the things i can; and the wisdom to know the difference." Well, i have not used the wisdom to tell the difference in a long time and it has caused me undue stress in my life. Now that i am looking at my senior year of college and wondering where i will end up by this time next year, i have decided to stop sweating the small stuff and to let my heart lead the way. Wherever i am meant to be, i am trusting that God will lead me there. I large weight has been lifted off of my shoulders and, instead of looking at my senior year with fear and uncertainty, i am looking at it with excitement and impatience for it to begin.

My Crazy Life

A lot has happened recently. Since Daniel and I broke off our engagement, guys have been coming out of the woodwork saying that they have been interested and/or they are currently interested. Its been crazy. I had a wonderful vacation with my family in Florida this past week and then went to Pickwick for the first of many (i hope!) annual Pierce family weekends at the lake. My whole family was there and it was good to be all together at some other time of the year other than Christmas!! I love my family so much and they are such a great support system for me. I dont know what i would do without any of them in my life. I went to Starkville last Thursday and had an amazing visit with my friend Ted! We have been friends for 7 years and it was great to reconnect with him again. I went and spent that weekend with my wonderful sorority sisters for a formal recruitment workshop and stayed with my friend Jamison at his apartment. Soon he will be moving home to Memphis to go to school there and I am excited to have him back!! I will be leaving for Hattiesburg and Southern Miss in mid-august to start my final year of college!! I may have a crazy life, but i wouldn't trade any part of it for the world!

Long Summer of Missing my Friends

So, i am halfway through the summer and i miss my sisters and friends terribly. It is the toughest summer i have had in a long time, but everything that is passing is making me stronger. I have wonderful friends who are missing me too. I am hanging out a lot with my friend Nathan, enjoying the true blood books, and plan on visiting my best friend from high school in Starkville a week from now! Things are starting to look up. I went to Graceland yesterday, got the VIP tour, and got a picture with Elvis and a set of stationary note cards so i can write to people when i go back to school for my senior year in college. I want to try to act and hopefully, i can convince a couple of friends to seize our youth and move to Los Angeles with me after we graduate. There is no time like when we are young to do something like that and take a huge risk. I dont have a family to take care of, so it would be the best time to move out there and go for it. I am excited about this new chapter in my life. I feel ready to do my best, to step up and really reach for my impossible dreams. Hopefully, i can be successful with my craft, not neccessarily rich and famous, but able to make a living with what i am passionate about. I will start updating more often, but for now, adios!
