Life Has Been Good To Me

Well I told you I would keep you updated, and I keep my promises! I'm am an SUU O-Leader for this summerr! I am so so so so so excited. Dreams really do come true thats all I have to say. I was really scared I wasn't going to get it, and then they called me. The story goes something like this.

I was at friendsgiving on thursday night, eating, having a good time and my phone starts to ring. So I pick it up and I hear "This is Sheana from Orientation how are you?"  I left the room, and I was like who? She says, "Sheana from Orientation I'm here with the whole team." Then i was like oh my gosh this isnt happening. Shes asks, "Would you like to be and O-leader?" Then I start to cry and say yes. They ask me if I'm crying and I say maybe just a little!

I really still can't believe that I Lizzy Brown got a spot out of 200 kids that applied. I'm just so excited for this amazing opportunity  I get to have. I get to learn new skill, grow as a team, and change the lifes of the incoming students.I'm just so excited. So if any of you that are reading this are Incoming Students to SUU I could very well be your O-leader!!! :)    

Life just don't seem real right now. I feel like I'm in a great dream and I havent woke up yet. But this is real life, and I do get to be an O-Leader. I wanted this so bad, and I'm just so excited! 

Thanks life for being so good to me. :) 
Confession of Lizzy Brown: Saw Catching Fire. IT WAS AMAZING! So good, probably the best movie I've seen all year! They did such an amazing job! I'm going again, as soon as I find a date! :)

The Future

The question that seems to be asked very often in my life is one you probably all heard; "What are you going to do with your life?" Well I have no clue. I have some great ideas, but I just can't give a set answer these days.

Plan #1- Become a Summer Orientation Leader. This would be such an amazing experience that I really want to have. I would work all summer having fun and giving tours of the school, and telling kids where the parties are and how to succeed in college. You know tour guild Barbie, but tour guild Lizzy B.  What about that doesn't sound fun? I have my second interview on Monday so we will see how that goes. There is only 12 opening and about 35 people have second interviews. Like I have said before, I'll keep you posted.

Plan #2- Work in Disneyland this summer. DUH This would be the second best job for Lizzy Brown. Spending my days in the Happiest Place on Earth. I would enjoy myself too much I think. If my O-leader thing doesn't work out my friend Keeks and I are going to check it out. (That's if she doesn't marry her missionary before then.)

Plan #3- Internship at a Hotel. I got to go to Vegas today and tour a few amazing Hotels that offer some pretty amazing Internship. One hotel has a paid Internship and then you pay $25 dollars to live there. YES, only $25 dollars, and that's without a roommate.You work all day and party all night, super fun. And by party I mean watch movies in my room, because I'm not 21. #Bummer

Plan #4- (which is the least likely) Get Married. hahahahahahahaha. That is just a funny joke. Lizzy Brown wont be getting Married at 19, but I thought I would put some comic relief in this post. So there you go, did you laugh? Good.

My life is just up in the air right now, and I really have no control over it. Yes, I've had a few anxiety attacks, no big deal. Good thing I have some faith in the Lord. All I have to say is I'll go where you want me to go dear lord. (I would prefer O-leader, but I'll take what you want to give me.) :)

Confession Of Lizzy Brown: I've finally made it to that point where I know I'm a real college kid. I have no money so I will be eating Mac and Cheese for the next few months, till things pick up at work. :) College life still rules! :)

Eleanor Brown

I've been trying to write this post for weeks, I just haven't been strong enough to do it yet. I'm ready now.It's also good timing to in honor of thanksgiving coming up and such. 

This is my best friend Ellie Brown and I just really miss her. She was the craziest grandma in the world and I loved her. Her favorite place in the world was Vegas, she took me there on my 15th birthday she taught me how to gamble that was fun.

 She never lived in one place for more than 3 years. She always was moving around and redecorating. She lived with me for a 3 years and those were some of the funniest and hardest times of my life.

She loved to go to movies, she was my movie buddy. She would check me out of school sometimes just because she was bored and wanted to go see a movie. 

My best friend pasted away from cancer a little over a year ago. She was such a fighter. The first time she had it, she was not going to let it stop her from living her life. She still traveled and gambled and did the crazy things she did, balled and everything. She was in remission for about 2 years before it came back. She was a fighter at first when it came back around the second time, then it was just too much for her little life to handle. 

She in a better place now, but I just hope I'm making her proud. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of her. I go to the movies all the time and just wish I could call her and get her opinion on it.\

Dear future husband, We will be naming one of our daughter Eleanor I think is a beautiful name and that name needs to live on in my family forever.

Grandma Ellie, I love you.

Confession of Lizzy Brown: I got the second interview for the Orientation Leader job. Wish me luck. I really want this job.

Who Am I?

Who am I? Who am I? I'm Jean Valjean! 

Just kidding I'm Lizzy, but I know you were all thinking it. :)

I've been reflecting a lot lately on who am I? Well I'm Lizzy Brown a student at SUU. But who am I? My answer kind of came to me today when I was walking around campus. 

So let me introduce myself.

I'm Elizabeth Brown. My friends call me Lizzy, how it came about I'm not really sure, I've just always been know as Lizzy. I have blue eyes and curly eyelashs. My thighs tough and I've been told I have a Kardashian butt. No big deal becuase I have a small love for the Kardashians. I love to perform. I love the feeling you get just before you are about to go on stage. I love the sounds of clapping after you have performed, and you know that is all for you. I love to dance around my house and put on shows for my roommates. I don't have the greatest voice, but I have one, and I love to use it. I was really scared to share it at first, but now I know its a small gift from god and I need to share it with others. 

I'm not perfect, far from actucally. I make mistakes and I've hurt peoples feelings. If I could take all the pranks and rude things I've said to people I would. I would take back the times I yelled at my parents or all the fights I had with my dad this summer.  I hate when people are mad or disapointed in me. It just really upsets me, all I want to do is help people, and make their lifes good. 

I always seem to find myself in the lifes of others who need my help, and most of the time I don't know how to help them, so I pray and my answer comes.Those people often times teach me more than I think I help them. Like,  how to love a person, how to care for someone other than myself, how to just be there when they need someone to talk to, to cry to. It's a gift I'm blessed with and I wouldnt change it for anything. I love being there for others.

There is just a little you need to know about me. Maybe even a little too much. But I love me, and thats all that matters.

Confessions of Lizzy Brown: I have just felt prometed to share this post and I'm not really sure why. I hope someone out there knows if they need a friend I'm here. :)

I Like Where I Live

It's a beatuiful fall day here in Cedar City. The weather was just perfect, not to cold, not to warm, all you need is a light jacket. (Name that movie) 

I live in such a beatiful place. I really believe there is a reason I am here. I thought I picked this school, but I'm slowly starting to think The Lord placed me here for a reason. Thanks Lord for looking out of me. 

If you have never been to cedar let me explain. It's bigger then Heber, but smaller then LA. If it was just a little bit bigger I would probably live here the rest of my life and raise my little babies here. One side of the town has the red rock that I'm just in love with, and the other side of the town has the green Heber looking side.  Every morning when I'm driving over this little hill to get to school I can't help but smile, because its such a great place to live. 

This place is just beautiful. I like where I live. 

Confession of Lizzy Brown: I'll be making homemade oreos tonight. Yes, you can stop by I'm willing to share. 

Please Write

Hello good friends, family, fans, (if there are any) and to whom may ever be reading this.

Do you want to know one of the sadest things to ever happen to a college student? It's going to open your mail box and never having anything in it. It's sadder than not having money to buy those super cute brown ankle boots I saw at the mall today. I have had a few letters come to me and I was just so happy! :)

 Do you want to know what would make my day? If I went to my mail box and opened it to letter from a friend, family memeber, or just someone who just wanted to say hi. That would make my life so much happier, knowing someone still cares and loves me somewhere out in the world. Even if it was just a letter with your autograph I would probably hang it on my wall in my room.

So if you want to write, draw me pictures anything. I would just LOVE it. Now I'm going to give you my PO Box. Are you ready for this?

P.O. Box 9375
Cedar City, Utah

I will even write you back. :)

Confessions of Lizzy Brown: My Orientation group interview is on Monday and I'm super excited and extremely tariffed. I really really want to be an O-leader. Wish me luck!
