37: "As we grow up, we learn that even the one person that wasn't supposed to let us down will. You'll have your heart broken more than once, and it's hard every time. You'll break hearts too, so remember how it felt when someone broke yours. You'll blame a new love for things an old one did. You'll cry because time is passing too fast and you'll eventually lose someone close to you. So take too many pictures, laugh too much, and love like you've never been hurt because every 60 seconds you spend angry or upset is a minute of happiness you'll never get back..."

41: Living in Jacksonville, Florida has been so wonderful! I have the most wonderful friends and I have had the greatest experience. In my short life I have faced many trials and tribulations but I have always had great friends to help me through. From cheerleading and different trips to just going to the movies and hanging out with friends, there was never a shortage of things to do. But all of that is about to change because on July 1, 2010 I will move from Jacksonville, Florida to Mobile, Alabama.
