I'm a college student from small town Nebraska. My major is Elementary Education with an endorsement in k-6 special education. I'm a bit of a nerd too, but really I'm just a 23 year old who's trying to figure out this thing called "LIFE" :)
Dear Diary (Pt. 1)
Dear Diary, I don't think I have done this since I was the same age as the sixth and seventh-grade students I now teach. I'm all grown up now, I'm 24. I've graduated college, got my bachelor's degree, and I have my own apartment. I've lived here since July and my life seems to go up and down.

It was a beautiful day, and I was in my bedroom playing with my baby sister Katie and her dolly she had named Cherry. I was sixteen. Katie giggled as I tickled her.
