A New Chapter

I'll be honest, going into this class I didn't really want to do the blog. I just thought of it as another two assignments to add to my weekly list, then I started to really enjoy it and while I was never one of the well known favorites, I'm proud of my posts. 

I guess I'll tell you more about me:
I moved from California to Utah when I was 4.
I have always felt alone in my family being the youngest of 5 girls and having my closest sister 10 years older than me.
I may feel alone but I love being the youngest. I have connected well with friends who are also the youngest with a large gap.
I went to Westfield Elementary for four years, then in 4th grade I transferred to a charter school for 6 years.
I gained some of my best, longest lasting friendships at that charter school.
In 9th grade I was the student body president of the charter school.
I love the rain so so much, hence my name. 
I still haven't decorated my journal cover because every time I try to start I get too scared of not liking it when I'm done. (I have some ideas now though so I'll start soon)
I hope that now that we're revealing ourselves we will still write with honesty.
I love writing, before this class I only wrote fiction, now I have found a new outlet.
Both of my best friends are fake red heads (and they both pull it off).
One of my best friends goes to Lone Peak, the other goes to AF.
I met them both at the charter school in seventh grade.
My room has been messy for two months and I need to clean it but I don't want to.
One time friends and I sticky-noted a teachers car, during school.
I've done some really stupid things in these 17 (almost 18) years, and I'm sure I'll do plenty more.
I've gone on amazing adventures and had amazing opportunities.
I love taking pictures, mostly of landscapes, not portraits.
I love reading, but I haven't been able to finish a book for a few months now and it's starting to drive me nuts.
I miss the days when I would wake up and instead of checking my phone right away I would grab a book and read for hours.
Coming up with a list of top 5 books was so hard, I feel bad leaving any out.
Iron Man is my favorite superhero. Loki is also pretty great.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is a fantastic TV show, don't listen to the haters.
I love music. Specifically my taste music.
I cannot wait to go to the Imagine Dragons concert and the Fall Out Boy concert this summer (two days apart, no less).
Once I fall in love with a song, it will always be in my heart even if in the moment I don't want to listen to it I never dislike it.
I love the Broadway version of Newsies. In the last three days I have listened to the entire soundtrack at least 4 times. I'm only a little obsessed ;)
I love acting.
I love swimming so much. 
There's a lot more I would like to tell you but that will have to wait for the rest of the term.
I'm sorry this isn't some beautiful, poetic post, but I thought you should know more about me before I told you my name.
