Don't you just love that word? fearless. Brave, bold and beautiful all at once.
To me, being fearless is not being without fears.  It's taking chances. Risking it all. Living life to the fullest. Letting your heart soar to what you love.
I love how Taylor Swift puts it.
(the whole quote is on pinterest - go look it up. It is totally worth it.)

Being fearless isn't just about us.  It's about making the world fearless for other people too.
Today in Health, we watched this video called Validation.
And I loved it.
So much, that I came home and found it on Youtube. Ha. (:

This is absolutely perfect. (And definitely worth the 16 minutes. hands down.)  I love the way the people lit up when he told them something.  It just makes you want to go out and hug everybody. Although that might be kinda creepy...

Lets just stick to the compliments for now.

This next week, lets be fearless. Take a chance, make a change, let others know you love them. Put some sunshine into their day.
Be fearless.

In-School Update. Ha.

Right now I am in biology. And we have computers so that we can finish our End of Chapter assessment.  But who's got two thumbs and decided to blog instead!?
this girl!

Sometimes, you just wanna run away from school.

Run Nikita, run...
(And this my friend, is the reason photoshop was invented.)

But really, highschool is the bomb diggity. Seriously.
First of all, I can tell you that a glue stick will not glue your lips together. How do I know this?  Because we tried it on Emma last week in French. Ha.

Second of all, don't you really dislike those people in your gym class who try to make running laps like a race?? I mean really though.  "Calm down bro! It's P.E. not the olympics!!" Sheesh.

Funny story. So I'm walking down the hallway, heading for Algebra 2. And right when I walk past a group of boys, I hear "Josh, look! We're matchers today!"

Oh ya know, I just seriously love highschool (:
And because it is only second period, and I'm hungry, I have posted this lovely picture from Full House.

i'm a mormon.

And I love it.
And lucky for me, it is that time of year again, and we all know what that means - general conference.
I absolutely LOVE conference (which is two days where you listen to great LDS church leaders give AMAZING talks). Really. I mean what is better than watching tv for a total of 4 hours, sitting around in your pajamas all day, eating yummy food, and listening to inspirational talks!?
Well, lemme tell ya, it doesn't get much better than that.
Anyhoo, back to the subject.  This year, conference has totally made my life. Because they have changed the age of when girls can serve a mission from 21, to 19.  19!! I've always wanted to go on a mission, but the fact that the age you can go is 19 just makes it 100 and 1/2 times better!

I'm pretty sure everyone else is excited too.Why? Because my news feed is stuffed full about it, my friends and I were talking about like ALL DAY today, and right when me and my family heard the news, we started screaming. And awkward dancing. And it was awesome.

I am so happy that I have grown up in the church. I know that it has blessed my life, and I have seen this gospel working in my life today. 
In one of the talks we heard today from Ann M. Dibb, she says "I'm a mormon. I know it, I live it, I love it."
(I am slightly obsessed with this. Just a little bit.)

Hope everyone has had a terrific Saturday.
