Holiday Humbugginess...

I don't mean to brag but during the holidays I am one of the most spirited people out there. I'm talking one level under the old lady wearing the ugly Christmas sweater and the blinking light necklace spirited. I listen to Christmas music BEFORE Thanksgiving, yes I am one of those people. I absolutely love everything about Christmas; the lights, the colors, the music, and well EVERYTHING!!! but I am sad to say  this year I just wasn't feeling it. Maybe it was because my dad's side of the family didn't come to town. Or maybe it was because I had to work the entire week up until Christmas eve night. it may have been because Tucson; which is normally all Christmassy with lights and decorations; was in fact NOT Christmassy with lights and decorations this year. it could also be that Arizona is a million acre litter box and never sees any white Christmases in the valley. Either way I just wasn't feelin it and it made me really sad. It felt like a normal day that included some presents and really good food. And i even forgot to bring home leftovers back to tucson!!!!! I am hoping that this bah humbug mood will pass with the new year and that things will start off right. its a new year with a new major, love and job so hopefully it will be a great one and wont fly by as fast as the last one did. But seriously where did that time go!!! I feel like it was yesterday that I was setting up show rings in Del Mar.

 Oh a little background, I worked in Del Mar, Claifornia this summer for a month at the San Diego County fair in the livestock barns. It was a good time and I made a lot of money and met some pretty awesome people. But back to time flying by...I feel like one minute it is dragging on but the next it is gone in the blink of an eye! for example Christmas day feels like it was eons ago, yet it was only five days ago!!!! Maybe a certain package from a certain someone will lift my spirits and bring me into the holiday mood again. Unfortunately since my boyfriend lives in New Mexico we couldn't spend our first Christmas together. (insert sad face) I am waiting for him to get his present and honestly I can't wait for him to get it!! Casey if you are reading this.... you have to wait and see what it is I am not going to tell you... even in this post!!!

I am almost more excited for him to get his present than to receive mine...almost. My sister and I were talking about this on Christmas day. We are reaction whores. We are almost more excited to see the persons reaction to our present than actually receiving a present. It's weird I know but don't judge.

Well since now I am rambling and making absolutely no sense I will just end this post right here...IN UTTER CONFUSION!!! Just kidding :) night everyone.

Let's give this a try...

Well I decided to create a what?

I will just start from the beginning. My name is Kearsten and I am currently attending the University of Arizona in the lovely Tucson, Arizona (insert dramatic eye roll here). I am now a junior and am an agriculture business major otherwise known as AREC. I was in an agriculture sorority but had to deactivate due to the fact that I had to prioritize and also grow up and work more!!! YAY!!! (insert heavy sigh here) I was born and raised in Arizona but do not plan on living here after I'm done with school... unless of course hell freezes over....then....hmmmm, no still don't plan on staying.

I played volleyball and softball in high school but my true passion is rodeo. I love it with every piece of my soul and it kills me every day that I cannot compete in college...due to the broke and college going part...see how I tied that in? Anyways I miss my baby boy, pride and joy, and all around perfect horse tanker so much! Going home is just that much better because I get to ride and really the only things better than that are...well.... nothing. JUST KIDDING!!! Of course I love my family, friends and boyfriend more but on the rare occasion tanker takes the lead over all. Don't even start to judge you know the truth in that statement!!
Since I have mentioned them I will talk about the family, friends, and boyfriend. I have the best family anyone could ever be blessed with...even though we drive each other crazy sometimes...but what family doesn't. I have my two parentals and my little sister who is undoubtedly my best friend and go to fashionista on anything. I would go crazy without my little sister she has helped me through some really rough times and even though she is a smart ass I'd be lost without her.

I am also blessed with the bestest friends imaginable. My best friend of over 16 years, who lived right down the road from me is now in Texas for college. being that far away from her is weird and I don't like it! But i guess that is all part of growing up. I am lucky enough to live with my other best friend, and also Big...btdubbs she also has a blog and you should go read it, its pretty awesome! Its called Life and Times of a College Cowgirl if you were wondering. As I said my roomie is also my Big, from that agriculture sorority I mentioned earlier. At this point neither of us are actives anymore (sad face). I still love all of my sisters and the two amazing littles I had. i made life long friends with these girls, whether it was old friendships with my rush class or new girls from the last rush class. these girls helped me through some really REALLY bad times and reminded me of the person I was and the person that I want to be. They are my family away from home and would not have had such a great past three years without them. Okay now we move on to the boyfriend. last but certainly not least. He has made me believe in love again. Every day I thank God that he walked into my life and that I am blessed enough to be loved by him. I wasted too much time on guys who weren't worth my time and the heartache they caused but it all lead me to Casey and I wouldn't have it any other way.

Okay enough with the mushy gushy lovey dovey crap. that is my life in a nut shell and there is probably way more that I forgot, but hey I could always add it in later.
