I'm 19!!!

by Grace 9. February 2019 11:30

Hey everyone!!!

As many of you know, I turned 19 yesterday!!! I had a wonderful day. I actually went to work, but my sweet coworkers signed a card, gave me chocolate, and brought me coffee cake, and I enjoy work, so hey! A day at work isn’t as bad as people make it out to be sometimes. ;)

And then I came home and ate a special dinner of quiche, bacon, and waffles with my family and then we had a southern gospel music fest of sorts out in our front room. What happened there… Stays there. XD

Here’s a few fun facts about what has happened over the past year:

 

Last year at this time I:

1) Was working at the high-school cafeteria

2) Only had my driver’s permit

3) Was a high-school student

4) Shared a bedroom

5) Was working on my paralegal program

6) Was 18!!!

 

Now, I:

1) Work at the Freedom Foundation

2) Not only have my license but have managed to roll and total a car :/

3) Am probably still high-school age… But I’m graduated nonetheless

4) Have my own bedroom for the first time in probably 17 or so years XD

5) Am interning as a paralegal!

6) I’M 19!!!!! WHAT HAPPENED?????

 

If you all have any other questions about things that have changed over the past year, serious or funny, ask me and I’ll answer them in the comments!

What are 3 new experiences you've had over the past year (places you've gone, people you've met, something on your bucket list, something you never thought you'd do, etc.)?  How many new songs have you written over the past year?  What was your 3 biggest 18-year-old accomplishments (these can be general like graduation, or personal like a special song you wrote)?  Happy birthday again!!  Smile

Hmm, let me think... Three new experiences...  I went to Kentucky, I did a college program, and I went to a lights festival in Seattle Washington. Three biggest accomplishments... I finished the paralegal program, I rolled a car (actually that doesn't count lol) I started a desk job, and I wrote "There is Love." That's a very personal song to me. ;)
Great questions Grace! Took me a little while to think of those, that's why it took me so long to respond. XD

Hi, Grace!
It's been a while. I guess we have some catching up to do sometime. I hop onto your blog every so often, just to see  what's going on. i saw that you turned 19. That's so exciting! Happy birthday! I'm glad you're big day was special.

Today is my youngest brother Joseph's 10th birthday! I still remember the day he was born. It's kind of sad that he's growing up so fast. He's still a very sweet boy, who seems more like 6 or 7 then his ten years. He has a very tender, innocence about him. Friday, the day before your birthday, was my dad and mom's 22nd wedding anniversary! They went out to eat, for which I'm glad. They deserve to do something special like that together, just the two of them. It's been a while since they got to get out of the house for an outing.

Well, I don't know when we'll be able to write again, but I'll at least tell you that I got a new job back in January at a place called K&W Cafeteria. It's a whole lot better in many ways than my previous job, but I still really do miss my co-workers, some more than others. I'm thinking of paying them all a visit in March...

Has your Mom had the baby yet??

I was wondering if your mom had the baby too; congratulations! Is the baby a boy or a girl? Did you see my post in August about my brother being born? (He came in the car!)

Congratulations on the Birthday, Grace! I hope you've been doing well. Sorry I haven't been commenting of late... my family and I have been busy of late, as we have moved to across the state and had to deal with all the hullabaloo that accompanies that.
I'll try to keep up with your posts on here; they are fun to read! Smile

Thanks J.S.!!! I have been doing well... I actually got a job as a paralegal! You haven't really missed much, I've only just gotten back to blogging regularly. ;)
Congrats on the move! Do you like your new place better than your old one? I've moved... I think eight times. ;)
I'm glad you enjoy my posts! I enjoy writing them. XD

Wow, congratulations! I'm thinking that I might apply for a job as a paralegal sometime in the future, although I no longer to think that song law will suit me as a long term career. It's good to know that I haven't missed too many posts. I'll have to get into the habit of blogging again.  Smile

Thank you for the congratulations! I think the new place is great, although I do miss our old home and its large acreage. But we're closer to everything where we live now, including our church. (We used to live in the middle of nowhere, so our situation is better in that respect.

Thanks! I'm really enjoying it, although I don't know that I'll necessarily pursue it long term either. I'll probably stick with it as a while. Do you have something else in mind that you think you'll pursue long-term instead? I can see myself forming some sort of musical career in the future or just settling down with a family.
Yes, you should get back to blogging! I really enjoyed reading your posts. ;)
I understand missing a home. I still miss our old place, and I've lived where we are now for several years now! I'm glad you enjoy the place where you're at though, and that's great that it's much more conveniently located. Smile
