To the Graduates....

Hey Everyone,

This post is particularly for those who are getting ready to graduate, whether it be from high school or from college.

To high schoolers: I have 2 in my family that will be graduating from high school this year and several others that I have had the privilege of mentoring or even just know.  Here is my advice to you.  Don't be afraid of the road ahead.  Right now it seems scary and to be honest, nerve-racking.  Those feeling will disappear and all will be well. 

Don't lose yourself.  College is intended to help you develop into who you become for the rest of your life.  What you learned in high school will help you in college, and what you learn in college is what will be with you for life.  Be true to yourself and don't be afraid of change because it will happen.  Every graduate I know are strong people who will go on to do great things.  I have no doubt.  Whether you go to college, go into the military, or go straight into the workforce, remember who you are and what you can do.

To College Graduates:  I have the honor of knowing some of the best people in the world and I know that I will be seeing them famous some day.  They have been mentors to me and I am so grateful for getting to know them.  My only advice is to continue to do what you all do best, be awesome.  The next time that I see a lot of you, you will be receiving your diplomas and moving to the next stage in your life.  I wish you guys the best.

Thats all for now folks,

Love & Laughs

Life Continues...

Hey Everyone,

A lot has happened since the last time I was on here.  I have had great moments and I have had moments where I did not know if I could continue on living like I am.  Let me go into a little detail about what has happened, both the good and bad.

Some of the Greatest things that have happened to me are as followed:

I became the new Student Governor for Missouri Western State University.  For those who don't quite knows what that means, I am the student representative on the Board of Governors for the university.  It is an honor to be selected by the Governor of the state to represent MWSU.

Recently, I was selected to be a Western VIP for 2012-2013.  Basically, my job is to represent the university for Guests and potential students to the university when they come to visit.  Very few are selected and I was one of them.

News away from school, on Thanksgiving, I became a 2-time uncle when my sister gave birth to my niece, Nora Souders. (Her full name is kinda long so I will just give you her name every calls her)  I have not met her in person only in pictures.  I must say that she is one of the most beautiful baby girls I have ever seen.  I get to meet her soon when the family comes back to MO for my lil bro's graduation.  I is excited!

Thats another thing, my lil bro is graduating high school, let me say that again, my LIL BRO is GRADUATING HIGH SCHOOL!!!!  Where has time gone.  I feel like just the other day, he was starting high school and now he is graduating.  Since he is the last one in my family to graduate, my house back home will be basically empty.   I wonder how the parents will take that.  I get a couple more years with him since he is planning on coming to MWSU next year.  So there is a positive to every situation.

My older brother is getting married in June and is expecting his 2nd child soon.  He and I havent always been the greatest of friends to each other, but he has come a long way from where he was and I am really proud of him.  I know that we will be a great father. 

Today is my sister's birthday.  Blogging is really her thing, I am not all that good at it.  so if you want a good read, I recommend the following link.


One thing that everyone needs to learn, and I want to apologize right now if this kind of brings the mood down for everyone but here it goes.  "All good things must come to an end"  the sooner that you learn that, the easier life is.  I recently split from my girlfriend and my best friend.  We had the most amazing time and I will always treasure those moments, but due to circumstances that neither of us had control over, we decided to go our separate ways.  It has been extremely hard on both of us and we miss the time we had.  I still love her and always will, I hope life heals the pain her and I have.

Another thing I want to stress to my readers is the importance of family.  You would not be here if it wasn't for family.  Right now, I am having trouble with my family and it is extremely hard and at times unbearable.  It is my fault for the troubles and I know that.  I plan on trying to rebuild the relationships I have.  I know they will never be the same but I hope for the best we can.

Thats all for now readers, I hoped you enjoyed.  If you liked this, I recommend that you read the blog that is linked above......SERIOUSLY! Like I am not kidding you all.
