maybe i still am a caterpillar? just a little bit. maybe.

I think I like the "idea" of a blog more than actually keeping my own up to date. I was just browsing through some of my friends and I can't help but feel a little insecure about my own little blog. Everyone is just so dang wity and profound. While I like to devote mine to picture I am going to turn a new leaf and try to actually give this "blogging" stuff a try. So here goes...

Monday I head back to college for my very last semester...well at Idaho at least. While for YEARS I have been counting down the units until I could finally leave what I thought was an empty and lonely state. Why is that I always find myself looking to the future rather than trying to enjoy where I am at? All I can say is that it gets old and I have been trying my hardest to love myself and what I am doing here and now. BUT I am not going to lie I have been anticipating this semester for a long time and now I have butterflies going crazy in my stomach. I am just so excited and yet so scared. What the heck am I going to do after I graduate? Where will I go? What do I actually want to do? Is maybe a masters in the picture? So many exciting options to keep open. I keep begging everyone around me to figure it out for me but truth is I actually get to be a grown up and pick my own path. YIKES. How exciting!!!!!!!! So hopefully I will keep you updated on this next few months on my journey through life!!!

So instead of trying to be profound and wise I thought I would leave you with this little quote:

"Just when the caterpiller thought the world was over, it became a butterfly."

It makes me a little sad that you do not love, love, love Idaho. But caterpillars are pretty great. I always loved "The Very Hungry Caterpillar". It mystified me. How he could eat so much.
