Goodbye to old friends.

It was sometimes a challenge being the youngest in my family. My bed time was before my older siblings' bed times and I was always afraid that if I went to sleep that I would miss out on something and my older brothers were always watching some movie (that I really shouldn't see at that age) that I really wanted to see. I remember watching plenty of movies from the hallway to the living room. As I've grown older and have started taking closer looks at myself, I've realized that I am still in a way afraid of missing out. Right now I am feeling this quite strong because I have some friends that are moving across the world to Falmouth England. I met them at BYU-Idaho and they have really pulled me up the ladder with them. I said goodbye to them the other day and I am sad to see them go. I really wish them the best of luck and want them to do well but I kind of have that feeling that I used to get when I was a kid and I was told to go to bed while my siblings were still having fun.

Adam and Erin Taylor have been very inspiring friends to me. I met them in our Narritive Illustration class at BYU-Idaho. Erin has lots of amazing raw talent and Adam is very bossy (in a good way) and has always pushed me to try harder and get better.

It has been an honor for me to be invited into their lives. It was a growing and fun experience to be able to do and show our BFA projects together.

It has been great during all of the times I have been doubting myself to know that they have had my back and that they believe in me and my abilities. I really have been blessed with good friends. I just want to wish them the best! And I want to let them know that I know that really I am not being left behind but because of them I can now fly high and this is an opportunity for open doors for them and me!
