I Have A Dilemma, and I Need Your Help

Hey y’all. So I have a dilemma, well two actually but we’ll get there.

First off, tonight I was playing church ball as usual and my back kept getting ran into so it hurt obviously. I thought I would be fine, but apparently I wasn’t because I got hit one more time and I was automatically on the floor bawling my eyes out. Don’t you just love crying in front of people? So now I’m stuck in bed praying that it doesn’t stay this way and reverse literally everything that has been cured after a year and a half of being in pain. And my dad was apparently calling me a wuss or whatever, so that was great. Yay for supportive parents. At least my brother is a sweetheart though, he put my shoes on for me, helped me put my warm-ups on over my shorts,and helped me get into the truck. A lady in the ward got me ice too which was very nice. Man I’m so bitter right now it’s kind of funny, I’m actually laughing.

Anyways, besides that totally chill and not frustrating thing, I have a concurrent (college) political science project due on Saturday that I completely forgot about. Long story short, I have a survey thing that I need people to take and I thought who better than the blogging peeps? So can you PLEASE take the survey it will take like 2 minutes max.

I’m begging you. Like, literally begging you. If you do it I will love you forever and ever, I really will.

A Mormon’s Review of the Book 0f Mormon Soundtrack: Part One

Hey y’all! So the other day I was talking to some peeps and that Book of Mormon musical came up. A few bloggers have told me about it and so I decided that I just needed to listen to the songs already. I thought it’d be funny to review the songs and make a post of my reactions. And please just understand that these songs are just jokes and not the actual truth of the church, so take that as you will.

Here we go!

First song, “Hello!”   I mean it’s pretty accurate starting off… then it just get’s funny . Not much to say about this one, but it’s really fun to listen to. Now every time I say Book of Mormon I’m going to be singing it in my head.

Second song, “Two by Two”  This song starts with talking about where one guy wants to go on his mission and right off the bat I started laughing. We have this joke in the church that you’ll get sent to the one place that you don’t want to go. My friends mom was okay with anything but South America and got sent to Brazil. After that I mean even if they are joking, mission’s are very important, but I can definitely laugh at it.

And I wish this is how people received mission calls, you really just open a letter that tells you where your’re going. And the chances of you going with someone you know is basically impossible.

The “soldiers of the army of the Church” part just reminds me of this song we really sing that starts with “And we are as the army of Helaman…” so I’m going to be singing that all day now…

Third song, “You and Me (But Mostly Me)”   “I wanna be the Mormon who changed all of mankind” actually really makes sense in our culture somewhat, not the church itself but just people looking to go on missions. We all want to be super powerful and get a lot done, but it does sound crazy when you put it this way.

And the part that mentions being 19 to go on a mission is now incorrect technically, now boys can leave when they’re 18 (I’m convinced that’s why the hot guy population in Utah has decreased) and girls when they’re 19 instead of 21 now.

In my head I’m envisioning an Elder missionary (the one who has been in the area/ on their mission the longest) singing this to his new companion.

Fourth song, “Hasa Diga Eebowai”  Okay well right off I clearly do not support what the saying actually means xD

Ah, the Lion King’s reference. Well this song gets pretty graphic really fast but it’s not even a two minutes in and I’m already bored…

I can totally see some missionaries going somewhere foreign and hearing about all this stuff they have no idea about. It happens quite frequently actually, they come back with some pretty great stories.

Fifth song, “Turn It Off”   The beginning of this song with the whole no emotion thing reminds me of my dad sometimes xD The main part of this song that I don’t understand at all is how the first part with the no emotion got associated with the church at all…

The 2nd part I get, but this isn’t how I want to address that, so no comment… If you really want to know then you can private message me.

And I had to comment on the Utah Jazz part, because for the first time in forever they actually don’t totally suck. When I was younger they were so bad though.

Sixth song, “I Am Here For You”  Can I please start saying “Tomorrow’s a latter day?” I don’t really have anything else to say about this, it’s pretty short.

I mean not giving up is always a good thing, you can make a difference, yayy

Seventh song,“All American Prophet”  FINALLY, I’m so excited for this song. Let’s see how many Joseph Smith jokes it makes. Well I can’t say I’ve ever heard him called the blonde-haired, blue-eyed, voice of God.

Okay well I mean yes Joseph did speak to God and Jesus, but I’m really disappointed I didn’t hear a joke about his age. (He was 14 btw)

And I hate to get technical, but there’s actually 3 more parts (The Book of Mormon, Pearl of Price, and Doctrine and Covenants)

The joke about him finding the golden plates in the Hill Cumorah was pretty good. Ah , good old Angel Moroni. I mean he is pretty important, he’s on the top of all of the temples.

And paradise= Zion=Utah which  is why all of the pioneers came here! Good old, Salt Lake City. (That’s where I live too, just in case you didn’t know)  Too bad Joseph never made it. I’m assuming you guys haven’t heard the story of how he was martyred, it’s actually really interesting.

Ahahha! Big Mormon families! So true, not even going to lie. I mean not every Mormon has a big family, but a lot do.

Eight song, “Sal Tlay Ka Siti”  Well this is clearly supposed to be Salt Lake City, and I’m definitely saying it the other way now. Okay so we do have waterfalls, unfortunately no unicorns as far as I know…

*Me during a job interview* “Yes, I come from a village in Ooh-tah”

Oh yes, the goat meat here is great… and the Red Cross has flour? What? We got some great Red Cross buildings, but if you’re looking for food, the Road Home is probably a better option.

Man, I really wish SLC was as great as she thinks it is… it’s a great place to live but I haven’t seen very many golden thatched roofs…

Ninth song, Man Up”  I think my dad wrote the first part of this song. He definitely wrote it. Although it is very catchy, I’m going to have to start singing this to myself.

Well, maybe don’t just always follow the white boy.. I’ve done that before, it doesn’t always lead to salvation. Just saying.

And where did Orlando come into this whole thing? Does he just really like Florida?

———————————————————————

Well, that’s it for part one! I hope you guys enjoyed it! Comment down below if you want to see the part two. I had a lot of fun writing this actually, I got a good laugh out of it. Just to mention again, just because I’m laughing at or making fun of it doesn’t mean it agrees with the churches standards, beliefs, etc.

Love y’all! -Aspen AKA The Author

P.S. I’m pretty sure that Joseph Smith was more of a dirty blonde…

 

The Stay Strong Tag

Hey y’all! So I was nominated by Jags to do the Stay Strong Tag which was created by Penny from My Life Anonymously Blog. I ‘m actually really excited to do this one, so let’s get right into it!

Here are the rules: 

  1. Put the Supergirl (or Superman if you are a guy) logo/image on the post
  2. Mention the creator of the tag and provide a link as well
  3. Tag 3 people to do this tag and let them know that they’ve been nominated

There’s apparently a few ways to do the tag, so here they are: 

  1. Talk about your own experience with suicidal thoughts and how you got through it and tips on how you got through it
  2. Even if you haven’t gotten through it, talk about it. Tell people your problems to show other people they aren’t alone
  3. Talk about if you knew someone who tried to commit suicide or actually went through with it
  4. Even if you don’t know anyone personally and you yourself haven’t gone through this, share some tips you might have anyways. Or make a post dedicated to people who have these thoughts and how you care.

 

As some of you may know, when I was 12 years old, my best friend Caiden committed suicide. I couldn’t tell you exactly why, but I do know something. Both of his parents committed suicide before him, and he found them both before he even turned 10. His older brother was the only one left to help raise him. I know he struggled with depression and felt responsible for his parents. At the time I didn’t understand how he could feel like that. I didn’t understand how either of his parents could leave him to find something like that.

Until I found him. That night was one of the worst nights of my life, but I understood. Now I know why he felt responsible and how much it hurt. Not even a day later the panic attacks started, it was so bad that I wasn’t even able to attend his funeral. Just a little while after I was diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

And while it still affects me now, I’ve come so far from where I was 4 years ago. Two months after Caiden died, my family moved to a new city and I was struggling more than I ever had. The nightmares and flashbacks never stopped, I could always see him in my mind, that night replaying over and over again.

It got to the point that I told myself I was done. I refused to live like this any longer, my life would be useless and I would never get better. Every night I would dream about finding him dead.

And to a certain degree I was right, I still dream about finding him dead every night. But I can do it, and I now know my life isn’t useless. Because of my experiences I’ve been able to help other people get through similar situations.

A year ago my mom’s cousin committed suicide and for the first time I was able to be in a situation like that without having a panic attack. I was able to help my cousins and family celebrate someone’s life.

Just a few months ago one of my cousin’s good friends who went to my school committed suicide. And as she cried I was able to hold her and know that I made the right choice. Horrible things will happen and you can’t control someone else’s choice, but you can control your own. I vowed to myself that I would never do that to the people I love. And that I would be here to help them like they helped me.

I promise you that if you feel useless and like you can’t get through something, it’s not true. You have a purpose and you are extremely important. There is always something worth getting up for. Whether that’s your blog, your family, your dog, even a cactus for goodness sake.

Never feel like you are alone, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I am always willing to talk and I can guarantee that there are at least 30 others in this community who are too. It is going to be hard, but you will learn how to feel better.

I have nightmares every night, I can’t watch certain scenes of movies, and I have random panic attacks, but I. Am. Happy. Happiness is never a constant, you need the sad times to recognize the happy.

The hard times are okay, the sad times are perfectly fine. But it’s okay to let yourself be happy, and not put so much pressure on yourself.

Here are some tips to help anyone who is struggling or just having a bad day:

  1. If it is that serious, please, please talk to someone. Find someone you trust (parents, friends, bloggers, etc)
  2. Going along with the 1st one,surround yourself with people that you get along with and like to be with.
  3. Music is always a great distraction
  4. Find something worth getting up for, or being happy for.

That’s all I can come up with right now,  I love each and every one of you. I hope you can all take something from this.

Epiphanies and Prom

Hey y’all! So Happy Valentines Day, I hope you had a good one. I had a good time, we had my favorite food for dinner (7-Up chicken) and my dad bought me my own pie (my favorite-double lemon cream obviously) and we went and watched Split (which if you know me, then you know I’m fascinated by serial killers) .

Anyways, the past few days have been weird for me. On Saturday while swinging at the park up from my grandparents house I was just thinking to myself when it hit me that November is only 9 months away.

I’m making all these plans for college when I’m not even supposed to make it through 4 months of senior year. School has been really hard lately. Junior year is all about prepping for the future and the only thing I can think is that it is all useless, completely useless.

Whenever I make comments about it my friends always just say “No, that’s not going to happen” Which I totally understand. But nobody wants to accept the reality of my future, which in turn can make it feel like everyone is just ignoring the severity if the situation. But I guess it’s fine, because I do it too.

The first thought I had today was that it was my last Valentine’s Day.

And I know that there’s a chance I’ll be okay, and I hope for that more than almost anything, but it doesn’t really make any of this alright for me.

I guess that’s enough of that, another topic of discussion is that I got asked to prom.

wp-1487138678384.png

I put a picture but it says, “It’d be so sweet if you’d go to prom with me” with a bunch of candy conversation hearts that had letters of his name on them. One of my good friends that I’ve known since 7th grade asked me which is really cool, and I’m excited to go! I am just stuck in finding an idea on how to respond… if you have any ideas please comment them down below. And shout out to Sav for the other ideas, I’m still considering the fortune cookie one.

That night while I was driving home from dropping Lauren off at home, Ryann and I were just laughing because she called that I would get asked legit the first week of school and I denied it up and down, but here we are xD (She claims she has Aspen senses)

Are any of you going to prom or any version of it? If not, have you been in the past or would you like to go?

I’m gonna head to bed, I’ve been exhausted lately. My doctors told me to drink a ton of water and for some reason it’s really slowing me down. Goodnighttt.

My Week In Pictures

Hey y’all! So this is a random arrangement of pictures that I’ve taken over the past month or so. I’ve spent a lot of time with my cousins which is great, we all had a sleepover this past weekend for Olivia’s birthday and it was so much fun. We had a talent show that was hilarious and ate a ton of junk and laughed for hours. I took a lot of pictures of the kids, and the puppy.

One of my friends, Emily, got surgery too so we brought her some stuff afterwards to let her know we care 🙂

Other than that, the scenery has been beautiful lately and I’ve got a bunch of cute handouts from church. So there’s also some pictures of that.

Twenty Nine

Hey y’all! So I’m assuming that most of you follow Elm’s blog, (if not click here immediately, just do it) anyways she did a post like this a few days ago so I asked her if I could use the same topic and she obviously said yes.

In her post she mentioned that a lot of things have happened to her on the 24th day, and as I was reading I found myself nodding along – because I have the same thing, only with 29 instead of 24. (Also, reading back I realized that mine are mostly to do with my “love life” just like she mentioned)

So I’m going to make a list of things that have occurred on the 29th of whichever month, and you can decide if its coincidence or not.

 

April 29th, 2000-  My eventually best friend Caiden was born. Little did I know that 10 days before his 12th birthday he would commit suicide. For a very long time both the 19th and 29th of April meant that I spent the day wiping away tears. I dreaded it every time April came around. It took me a long time to be able to celebrate his birthday and be happy that I got to know him and the life he did live, no matter how short.

April 29th, 2014- My “baby” (technically cousin) Ivy was born. I automatically had 2 things to celebrate. And as weird as it may sound, for me it was as if she came on the same day he did for a reason. She still helps me appreciate how precious life is, and the both of them have given me reasons to fight for mine.

July 29th, 1997- My (insert complicated relationship title here) Haiden’s birthday. No matter how complicated he’s made my life, I still love him and am so glad I’ve had the chance to know him. He constantly shows me what it means to be a truly caring and selfless person. He also showed me what love is, and what love can mean.

December 29th, 2013- First kiss. *internal Aspen thoughts- (Do I tell the story or not..) Ah why the heck not, right? So it was in Wisconsin and Haid and I had been playing basketball but there all of their outdoor hoops are made of metal chain link (at least where he lives)and they get frozen together so you can’t really play, but we tried and I fell (classic Aspen). Anyways, there’s this little cafe thing called Millie’s where we’d always go because they have the BEST hot chocolate, so we went there and sat in our “usual” seats in the back of the restaurant. And idk, eventually he just leaned over the table and kissed me and I was beyond shocked to say the least. (I was 13 okay? and we were just friends! Like my eyes were wide open after, like a fish. Real smooth, I know. But I mean all things considered it was pretty cute, not my face though. Not that part.)

 

July 29th, 2015- Haiden’s 18th birthday- we officially stop talking. Long story. Really, really weird for me at the time, we’d been best friends for 4 years at that point.

January 29, 2017- January 3-, 2017 (Because Aspen is a failure and forgot to finish writing this yesterday) But a few weeks ago I saw him again, and kissed him, and now I’ve seen him multiple times since then because he moved to Utah from across the country to go to school. Let’s just say if we were past the point of being friends before, not it’s definitely not a possibility.  He’s also the only person known to help get rid of my nightmares so there’s been a handful of nights spent at his apartment when my parents can’t handle the screaming in terror anymore. I have no idea what’s going on, and I don’t really want to figure it out even though it’s driving me crazy, because I can’t make my mind up about what I even want.

Oh, and did I mention that one of my vertebrae like popped out kind of? Yeah it really hurts. But oh well.

I really didn’t plan (or want) to write about any of this, or anything that involved him for multiple reasons. One being that I know the majority of people who read my blog (hey guys) and I feel like this will sound really stupid and you’ll think I’m dumb or ridiculous or something. But as dumb and ridiculous as it sounds, I can’t force it out of my head and I needed to write it down somewhere. Moral of the story is that boys suck and I only like them as friends. I’m also a liar sometimes.

I just can’t wait for what March 29th brings, wish me some luck maybe?

I hope you’re doing well, comment your least favorite day of the week below just for the heck of it (Mine’s Thursday, in elementary that’s the day I went home with my friend Jaydon and I always got anxiety that they would leave without me, and it’s just stuck xD)

400 Follower Answers!

Hey y’all! So I’m back to answer a your awesome questions, thanks so much for commenting!

  1. Liv asked: If you could relive any childhood memory, which would you choose?

Aw man this is so hard. I think I’d have to say just any old regular day where I got to spend it messing around with my brother playing all sorts of random games. We could run loose in the backyard and entertain ourselves for hours with the trampoline or “Ninja Seesaw”. And back then my parents wouldn’t make us do anything, if we were having too much fun they wouldn’t make us go to bed or anything. The good old days.

2. Sav asked: What would the name of your autobiography be? And if you woke up as a dog what would be the first thing you do?

Actually, a few years back my friends and I had a joke that if I had an autobiography it’d be called “The Life of a Teenage Dictator”. And I’d either go run everywhere as fast as possible or go back to sleep because, NO SCHOOL.

3. Ocean of fear asked :What do you think your Harry Potter patronus would be and why? What is your dream job if every job had the same pay? Favourite film?

I’ve actually never read Harry Potter so (I know, I know) but from what I’ve heard and some *cough* online quizzes *cough* I’m a Gryffindor? (I don’t know, leave what you think I would be in the comments below)

And  I would still want to be a doctor, the money isn’t really what makes me want the job. My favorite (sidenote: my computer is trying to autocorrect the ‘u’ out of everyone’s words, it doesn’t understand non-American English) is Phantom of the Opera, I have the whole thing memorized.

4. Brookie asked: When did you start basketball?

I started basketball in kindergarten so I would have been 5. It was my dad’s requirement in order for me to keep dancing. Woah, that means I’ve been playing for 11 years…

5. Liss and Dani asked:  If you could meet any 5 bloggers, who would you pick?

Well you definitely win for the hardest question, thanks guys. I’m going to say that you 2 only count as 1 blogger because I can, and then Gioia, Mit, Liv, and Colby then… Agh there’s so many people I want to pick.

6. Trish asked: If you could change one thing about your country’s politics, what would you change?

I’m going to assume that you’re wanting me to say the president, but I’m actually not going to for 2 reasons. First, I believe in the process of government this country was built on and taking him out would be disagreeing with that. And second, I would change who gets attention. For example, I would make it so that a good person with a good education and background with good ideas for the country had as much of a chance as someone who only has a blasted amount of money.

7. Elm asked: What is the best thing that’s ever happened to you? What’s your favourite character from a book or movie?

The best thing that has ever happened to me would definitely be meeting/knowing the people I do now. I don’t know how to explain, they and you guys just mean so much to me.

And I’ll do both my favorite book and move character. For movies, it’s Iron Man aka Tony Stark, he’s hilarious and sarcastic and a genius. So me! (Did I mention egotistical? 😉 My favorite book character is Will Herondale from The Infernal Devices. Again he’s super sarcastic and arrogant, but at the core he’s super sweet and caring. I just find these kinds of  characters really entertaining.

8. Abby asked: If you could only wear one outfit for the rest of your life what would it be? 

Well it’s freezing here in the winter, but also super hot in the summer. So I think I’d choose a comfy t-shirt, leather jacket, some type of boots, and then jeans I could like roll up or down depending on the weather…

9. Iridescence asked: Ice cream or pizza?

Okay I like pizza, but I don’t love it. And I LOVE ice cream.

10. Dzieyy asked: What’s your biggest pet peeve? Fav animal?The most weird experience of your life? Are there any bloggers you want to meet? Sunsets or moonlight?

My biggest pet peeve is lazy people who never do anything for themselves. And I don’t care who you are, I’ll call you out on it.

My favorite animal is a grizzly bear! (Which also happens to be our school mascot)

The weirdest experience of my life… umm.. the one that I can think of is probably when this like 20 something year old lady bought Lauren and I pie and we were being stared at by another lady and glared at by this boy and sitting next to a table of very drunk guys at Denny’s at like 2 am. I’ll link the full post here, Friends, Football, Freaks, and Free Pie.

There’s tons of bloggers I want to meet! We just need a convention or something.  And my favorite time of day is the evening, so sunsets for sure.

11. Luna asked: Which fictional character do you hate the most and what would you do if you met them? 

The fictional character I hate most is probably Abby from The Crucible. If you haven’t heard of it before it’s about the Salem Witch trails where a ton of women were killed after being accused of being witches. And Abby is a young girl (17 in the book, 7 in real life I think?) who played along and got them all killed to save herself. Her character in the book is pure evil and so needy and disturbed. If I ever met her I’d probably punch her a few times and then force her to confess so she could live the rest of her life as an outcast.

 

I hope you liked it! Again I can’t thank you guys enough. Love y’all! -Aspen AKA The Author

 

We Hit 400?! // Q&A

Hey y’all! How have you all been? I’m doing pretty good. My back is feeling a lot better which is amazing. I was able to actually play basketball for the first time in forever on Thursday which was mind blowing.

Basketball has always been a massive part of my life and one of the things I really enjoy, so getting even just a small part of that back has given me a lot of hope. So I’ll be able to actually play church ball (we have men, women’s, young men, and young women’s teams for every ward) and my ward is kicking butt. We’ve dominated in all of our games so far, so Region Championships is a pretty high possibility this year!

Speaking of young women’s, for our activity on Wednesday we took coats and blankets to this welfare home thing for kids. It’s basically a place where single (or not, but mostly) parents can drop off their kids for free so that they can get necessary things like Dr. appointments and job interviews done. It’s also a place for victims of domestic abuse, and more. In the car on the way to get ice cream, we were talking about how great it was that there was a place like this for struggling parents (mostly mothers) to get help with their children. Even thinking about it now, the most terrifying thing I can think of would be having kids and not being able to take care of them. My leaders said that it’s a mothers worst nightmare. So I am very grateful for the people who donate their time to volunteer to help those in that situation.

And last, but not least, A.K.A The Author hit 400 followers! FOUR HUNDRED! It’s absolutely insane! Thank you guys so so much for still supporting me and taking the time to read what I post, it means the world to me. I decided to do a generic Q&A instead of something else like I’ve done before, because I haven’t done one since 200 followers!

So leave any questions that you have down below! Thanks tons, I love y’all so much! -Aspen AKA The Author

Why I Consider My Life A Miracle

Hey y’all! So I’m sure you read the title, and I’m also sure that you now think I’m super conceited and self righteous. While I do happen to have somewhat of a “big head” as my dad says (I’m working on it, okay?) That’s not what this is about.

As most of you know, I’ve been dealing with really bad pain since last November. I lost the feeling in my hands by January, and have visited so many different doctors its insane. I’ve been to the ER, neurologist, cardiologist, fibromayalgia specialist, chiropractors, etc.

Then this past week my mom told me that she had scheduled an appointment with a very different kind of doctor. I call him a witch doctor only because I don’t really know what else to call it. He says he has a “gift”.

So we go into his office, he asks what I was there for so I said that I had been having really bad back pain. So he literally just hovered his hand over my back and said that I had scoliosis (which we already kind of new- it means that instead of my spine being straight, it’s an ‘S’ shape) and he also said that I had cracked my vertebrae in some sort of injury.

My thoughts at this point were, “Seriously, Aspen? How does one even crack a vertebrae? Good job loser!” But they quickly shifted after what he said next. Because of the scoliosis, when I had cracked the vertebrae it smashed my spinal cord. But it was apparently much  more serious than I was thinking.

Apparently, if I would have hit it any harder I would have become a parapalegic. And for those of you who don’t know what that means, it’s paralyzed. I can’t seem to wrap my head around how I was so close to having an entirely different life.

I can’t believe I thought I had it so bad when it could have been so much worse. I’m lucky that all I got was pain and losing the feeling in my hands.

And now to the even more miracle part. When my dad woke me up this morning, I could feel my pillow case with the bottom of my hand. I was yelling, “I can feel it! I can feel it!” And my dad basically just stood there in shock until I ran into the kitchen to show my mom.

And in the middle of explaining how I still couldn’t feel my fingers but I could feel my palm I got so overwhelmed that I just started bawling my eyes out. I can’t explain how excited I am just to feel again after a year. It’s still pretty weird to be honest, but I love it.

I should be dead, and if not dead, I should be paralyzed. And if not paralyzed, at least still in lots of pain without feeling in my hands. But life gives us little (or big) miracles, its just up to us to keep on looking and searching for them. It took me a year to find this doctor, but I did find him, and now my body is making progress.

I hope that all of you don’t give up before you find what you’re looking for. Thank you so much for all of your support and concern about how I’m doing, it seriously means the world to me. I just saw that I’m only 3 followers away from 400 which is crazy, I’m so glad you guys decided to follow my life through this blog.

I’m going to end this here, my grandma and cousin came up from Kanab for the weekend and we’re about to all watch some movies. Comment down below something that you consider to be a miracle in your life!

Love y’all!- Aspen AKA The Author
