A New Year

So as you all know a new year is arriving! 2013! My graduation year! I am super excited because this is the year that I will pretty much have to change lifestyles. Since I am going off to college in the fall, I have to prepare myself to take that big step without my parents or family around. I still have another several months left of my senior year, but that will come to a closer fairly quick, and I won't have time to make the changes I need to in my life in order to live at school and away from home. It will definitely be hard and I'm sure I will get homesick quickly, but college is what it is all about. It is going to be an amazing experience that I am ready (or will be) to challenge. I will make friends that will become the best of friends and even maybe meet my future husband! I don't know what college will have in store for me but I know that it will make me, well, ME! Wish me luck! I love all of my followers, well the 2 that I have! Byeee

Hey y'all. So Christmas has passed and I am currently blogging on my new Samsung Windows 8 matte screen 14" laptop! My parents got me this gift for college and I was lucky enough to receive it right now for Christmas! We had a wonderful day and later my Aunt Tina, Uncle Marc, and my two cousins Shea and Brandon came over for dinner and cards. Today though, this day was completely horrible. I don't think I've had a worse day in my life. I can't really talk about it right now, but I'm really in pain and I'm hurting so I hope I can get through this. I'm sort of at a numb stage right now and I'm hoping that things will get better soon. Congratulations to Alex's mom for having her new baby Norah! I bet you guys are loving her like crazy right now! I wish my life was going as well as yours. Anyway, Merry Christmas.

Chirstmas Plans!

How is everyone doing?! Today I mostly sat around and video chatted with my best friend Alex :). You all know her. We are still video chatting as a matter of fact! We also watched the movie Superstar. It was really funny and I really enjoyed it, and so did Alex. It was the first time we had ever seen it! Right now I'm watching Alex make her mom's bed and earlier I was cleaning my room. Now I have to wait for the laundry currently being done to be done so that I can clean my clothes and sheets! I also have to vacuum my room and de-clutter which I have done mostly. My room was really messy and it was about time that I clean it! I really don't want to go back to school but I'm excited for Christmas! I can't believe Christmas Eve is tomorrow!! I am going to go to church at 8:00pm with my family and hopefully the mass won't be too long! My Aunt, Uncle, and cousin are also coming over for dinner so I am going to dress up and it will be fancy!! I'm pretty sure I know what I am going to wear! Today, the same Aunt that is coming found out that her half brother passed away. It is really sad but I know that he is with God now, even if he had some issues of his own. We all do. My prayers are with him and will be with God tomorrow night at mass. I hope my Aunt is still able to enjoy the holidays this season. I love her and hope she is doing good. She is strong. I hope you all have a really nice holiday season. Goodnight everyone! :)

Video Chat Sleepover

Alex and I are video chatting right now and we have been for 1 hour and 10 minutes and it has been awesome!! I just made ginger snap cookies from scratch and might I say that they are delicious! I am so excited for Christmas because it is baby Jesus' birthday! Alex and I are listening to a vlog that her and her brother Ethan made today. She is on her oxygen right now and I am sitting here waiting for my giant ginger snap to cool down so I can eat it! I will try to put at least one picture on every blog that I write. We are both chewing on our fingers, it's pretty funny! We are going to have another sleepover tonight so I am really excited about that! I am drinking a coke, or drank a coke lol and we are ready to party forsureeeee! Sorry I haven't posted in awhile!!! I haven't gotten around to it lately! I might watch a movie laterrr.... IDKKK

Botanical Gardens!

YAYYYY!!! Christmas Break officially began today!
Tonight my friends Maddy, Rachel, and I all went to see the Botanical Gardens and eat gelato in Bellevue Square! It was so much fun, although it probably wasn't the best idea to wear dresses because it was really cold. If you don't know what the Botanical Gardens are, they are a garden full of donated Christmas lights that volunteers go to help turn into beautiful flowers and trees and even animals. We saw a Loc Ness Monster made completely out of Christmas lights that someone said it took 200 hours for volunteers to build. I was amazed! 
I wonder what it looks like during the day! (not good I suppose)
2 of our friends were planning on coming with us but they decided to ditch us for someone else which made us pretty mad. I, fortunately, confronted them about it and it is settled now so we can be at peace with our treaty. Just kidding we aren't nations lol, although right now in senior issues we ARE doing Model UN! Wooo! Damn I shouldn't think about school on break! It is sooo hard... just clear your mind Lauren, you crazy Bafoon....

Anyway, here are some pictures from the Botanical Gardens!
Sorry, the one of us is blurry!

So a lot of people received blizzard warnings on their phones yesterday and stuff, but I haven't gotten them, probably because of my California area code...
That would be awesome if we had a blizzard tonight though because I wouldn't have to go to school tomorrow and take my math TEST! But then again I want to take it so I don't have to take it after break when I forget everything that I just learned!
I'm super excited for Christmas! Who isn't! Christmas time is absolutely my favorite time of the year!!!
I hope all of my readers have a wonderful holiday whether you celebrate Christmas or not!!!
(I don't even have any readers hahaahaha) WHATEVERRR #yolo#realtalk#swagmaster

          Alexandria is my best friend in the whole world! We both have CF and she has been my inspiration for 5 and a half years. We met on youtube and after a couple awkward video chats, we pretty much know each other's families and friends :) We have had a few sleepovers and we had our most recent one last night! We video chatted for almost 17 hours straight! That was our first video chat in 4 months! We haven't been keeping in touch very well for the past couple of months because of how busy we both are. It's my senior year of high school and she is a freshman in college, but she also is very busy with the hospital visits and keeping up with her treatments and healthcare. No one will ever know me the way she does, or will be able to make me as happy as she makes me. I owe a lot to her and I try to support her as much as I possibly can because that's what best friends do. I hope that one day we will be able to meet each other in real life once we are either cured or she gets her double lung transplant. She fights so incredibly hard to just take a breathe everyday and if I could, I would take her place in a heart beat. It has been extremely hard for me to watch her deteriorate over the past 5 years and I know what will inevitably happen sooner or later. I know that she is strong enough to hold on long enough until she is at the top of the transplant list. I only wish the best for her. I have to be positive because I know that God has her in his arms. He will do what he has to do and I trust his choice. Alex was placed on this Earth for a very important reason. That reason is to inspire everyone she meets or even sees on the street to be a better person and to be grateful for the life they live and especially the air they BREATH.  Breathing is something that too many people take for granted in this world and it is her duty to spread awareness of Cystic Fibrosis. People are dying everyday from it, so they only thing we can do now is keep our heads up and wait until it is our turn to leave this Earth and go to God, or to hopefully beat this disease and live to inspire others to as well. Alexandria is my best friend in the whole world, and I will never let her go. I don't know what I would do without her. 

Alex, I am so proud of you for making it this far.
I love you.

You and me together,
Always and forever,
Nothing can tear us apart,
You'll always be in my heart. 

Right now I am video chatting with my best friend and we are having a blast!!! We have been video chatting for 5 hours and 20 minutes and this has been long overdue! I love her with all of my heart and we are going to have a sleepover tonight :) She makes me laugh so hard and I have missed her. The last time we video chatted was in August over the summer! Her name is Alex and she has Cystic Fibrosis just like I do! I know that we will meet someday when we are cured or after she gets a double lung transplant!! I will definitely blog about her a lot because she is such a big part of my life! We are going to go to sleep now!!! Good night!

Hello! I am currently about to reply to WSU saying that I will be attending their school in fall semester of 2013! I an going to request a dorm as well which I am still in the midst of choosing. My college path is becoming clearer and is approaching with rapid speed. I also came into contact with a local veterinarian who I am planning to job shadow next week for my Culminating Project to graduate! First semester of my senior year is quickly coming to a close so hopefully I can get a few of my grades up in time! Woooohoooo!

It has been a really long week and I am really glad that it is over. My doctor told me that I could have a stress fracture in my lower spine. I hope that it isn't true. Im going to get a MRI sometime next week hopefully to see if there is actually a crack. I haven't been able to gym whichever has made me really sad. We had a home meet last night and a lot of my friends came but I couldn't show them my routines so I was really bummed. Tonight is my gymnastics team's Christmas party! We are doing a white elephant so that should be exciting. I have to go get a gift. I hope my back starts healing. 2 more school days until Christmas Break!!!

I am laying in bed right now and I just installed blogger, the app, on my phone so I can post from wherever I'm at now. I am contemplating my schedule tomorrow and desperately want this week to be over. I have exactly one week left because we have school next monday and tuesday. I cant wait for christmas! It is my favorite time of the year and i love spending it with my amazing family. Better get to sleep! Good night World

Today was nothing special. I went to school and saw all of my friends. I took a quiz in AP Calculus that was pretty easy so I think I did pretty well on it. I also worked with my Model UN group in Contemporary Issues on a project that is due on friday. I also have to start planning my CP. I am currently doing my TOBI aerosol at the moment and am watching the Voice. One of my best friends named Alexandria (she also has CF) was tested yesterday for CFDR (Cystic Fibrosis Related Diabetes) but she ended up not having it. I am thankful to God for that. Tomorrow I have doctor's appointment at the sports doctor for my back. I'm not sure what is wrong with it but it's been hurting for the past month and I've had to take a break from gymnastics which sucks because I have my first home meet on Thursday. All of my friends were going to come watch me but now I probably won't even compete. It is my senior year too. We will see what the doctor says tomorrow!


Hello new followers! 
My name is Lauren, and this was going to be anonymous, but I decided to just post my first name.
I will be talking about my life with Cystic Fibrosis. 
This will sort of be like an online diary that people can read and maybe get advice from.
I hope this helps you with your daily struggles!
