Did I get your attention? Were you hoping I would tell you the secret to life? Weight loss? Getting Pinterest projects to actually turn out the way they should? Happiness? Or maybe getting the perfect career or spouse?

This June it will be have been four years since I graduated high school. Say what? Where did that time go? Scrolling through the endless home pages on Facebook and instagram I've noticed a lot of my fellow classmates are married, having babies, returning from missions, getting into their career, traveling the world or graduating with their bachelors degree this spring.

I had no voice. I still have no voice. It’s been about four frustrating days since I had my tonsils removed, and I think it would be safe to say that I am ready to talk. Or sing. Or communicate faster in general. So much sympathy goes out to my Mermaid friend, Ariel, who essentially loses her voice for legs and true love. Ever find yourself extremely frustrated while watching that show because you just want her to be able to blurt her name out to Prince Eric? Well, I’ve found myself extremely frustrated with myself these past couple days just wanting to blurt out a simple “thank you” or “hello.” I’m sorry for my lack of patience, Ariel, and a huge shout out (in typed form, of course) to my family and friends for their patience with me.
