No matter who you are, we all have memories that we hold dear. With my 29 years of living, I’ve come up with some that I will never forget. It’s almost like, I’ve stored them into a little pocket in my brain and every once in a while they filter out. Of course, some memories are really fun and some I wish I could forget. Whatever the case, I will share with you some of those memories that I hold dear.
My time spent with my great-grandparents, for some this may mean nothing, however for this girl it meant the world that I was able to know and be around them. Going to Gettysburg with my grandparents a few years back was amazing, it’s not anything overly exciting, but for a person who loves history… Mainly the Civil War, it was good. Ski trip with Camissa, which was fun until I was going down the slope and crashed, twisted, and snapped my knee. But at the end of the week however, after sitting inside with my leg up, I grasped the full understanding of Spongebob. In grade school playing Star Trek with friends on the playground, with may I say, my toy phaser and tricorder. I was either Troi or Geordi with my headband over my eyes. Yeah, it was very nerdy. Lastly, the trip to Scotland that I took with Liz this last year was all memorable, but for some reason this one thing stuck out more then the rest and it wasn’t anything spectacular. It was while we took a bus ride to Uig and after taking in the small town, Liz continued walking around and I took a seat on a bench just looking out onto the ocean. That was it, just me sitting and looking out watching the weather change faster then it does here in Kansas, it was soothing and peaceful. It’s those moments, those quiet moments that remain with me longer then anything else.
These were also fantastic memories… What stinks about this particular memory, is that they closed it up because it’s unsafe or whatever. Well, it was the best dang thing at the park! The rocket!
One of the biggest parts of my childhood was my Barbies and these guys…
These are the only survivors.. All my other ST figures went away. Still bummed about that.
Even though I didn’t match it up all the way, thought I’d be cool and take the same shot I took some 14 years ago for freshman photography class. The reason I’m showing this photo off, is because this photo gave me an A, this photo was taken to a show and this photo didn’t win, but my teacher wanted a copy of it. Why? No idea… I’m not a huge fan of it, but I was honored.
