I love meeting new people.
It's one of my very, very favorite things.
But most of all, I like when people take the time to meet me.
I really don't know how people can be so quick to judge.
I mean, I know it only takes 7 seconds for a first impression, but still.
The real them, not their outward appearance, or the things you hear, not the things you think.
It's really crazy how many new people I've met in the past five months of starting MATC.
I've made new people though attending school there, and by me taking clients.
It's such a great profession.
Helping people feel beautiful, inward and outward.
"You can't feel pretty on the inside
when you're not confident on the outside."

listen has the same letters as silent.

sometimes it's better not to think too much about it and just see what happens.
sometimes things don't make sense, it just feels right.
sometimes we need to be with someone who values your worth and the way you're treated.
sometimes it's what the person does, not says.
sometimes we should listen to what our brain says, not just our heart.
sometimes you just have to keep an open mind, and go with the flow.
sometimes you have to remember we're capable of our happiness and self worth.
sometimes words can only be forgiven, not forgotten.
sometimes mistakes help us find the good in life.
sometimes we shouldn't change for someone else, we should be loved by someone who loves you.
sometimes we forget we're responsible for how our lives turn out, not life.
sometimes it's not what we do, it's how we do it.
sometimes someone comes into your life that changes everything. 
-raises standards
-makes you laugh
-makes you feel like... you.

but until then, you wait.
for the sign to make a move.
if you're suppose to move.
do you move?
do you stay?
are you stuck?

Darn, seems like my little website has slipped through my fingers.
I've been on pinterest for about a year now, and it's beginning to become so popular.
Oh well, it was bound to happen.
It's an amazing site full of the worlds most common interests.
I've been getting cosmetology ideas and everything off of it for so long.
It's really an inspiring website! <3
It's crazy because I haven't had a blog post in a really, REALLY long time.
I'm gonna come back, I promise!
Anyway, I'm tired. Goodnight :)

if you need a friend, you've got my hand.

I can't believe school starts in TEN days. 
I googled everything but the first two.

My summer has consisted of some great memories,
and I want to thank all my friends and family for helping make them.
I sure do love memories. 

One of my favorites this year would have to be Girls Camp at Flaming Gorge.
Sorry, Shawn. I love you and we've made amazing memories this summer, but this is my only vacation... ALL SUMMER.

And here we are, bright and early in the morning already to head up to Flaming Gorge.
I'm stoked, actually.
Besides the fact it's 8 in the morning during SUMMER, I had never been to Flaming Gorge.
Wow, what a wonderful place that is. 

I had only wake boarded once a few summers ago, and got up my first try. And I can't even get up behind my own boat, but lo and behold, I popped right up behind the Grahams boat.
I even grew a pair and went out of the wake, 
(Don't ask what injurys occured while trying to get back in it though...)

Waiting for the boats to come back in for another load of chitlins was tons of fun too. 
Me and Mellie waiting on the tube, chattin'. Probably about inappropriate and dirty things. 
But hey, what are friends for? 
 And here we are after a long day of boating. That blanket was so warm, 
especially since mine was soaked 100% of the trip, since the boat would always take a nose dive 
and my towel was conveniently at the front of the boat. Lovely.
 Oh, and this is the typical us. Trying to see how far we could go until the leaders busted a gasket.
Hahahah, I really do miss these days. No makeup, hair not done, personality showin' through cuz no one gives a crap. Yeah, I love camping with these girls because of THAT.

Oh geez, this picture has a thousand unspoken words behind it. This was taken right before the tube was deemed the "TOE RIPPER". We definitely went for a run of this little baby, I skipped on top of the water after being thrown off the tube about 7 times before sinking into the water, I kicked myself in the back of the head and then Jordan's poor little toe ripped right down the middle. We rushed onto the boat, she got a blessing and Melissa, I, Ondra and Christine went with Jordan to the ER. 

That has another story. Wanna hear it? Keep reading. If you don't care, gtfo my blog. ;)
Well, we sat in the ER for a good hour and a half before they even took Jordan back to get her all stitched up. While that was going on, another two hours pass, a lady carrying her five or six year old comes in screaming for help. We all jumped out of our seats immediately, and tried to help. We knew we couldn't do anything but we all just pointed to the doors for her to take herself and daughter through.

That's a moment I will never, ever forget.
We all sat back down with tears in our eyes and chicken skin.

 On a better note, this is one of the funnest tubes I've ever been on.
So, awesome. I know. 
After three pops and one unrepairable rip down the side, it rests in peace.
We ran this tube to the ground.
Thanks Kev, for the best tubing rides of my life. <3

Ah, summer. I love that word. Ah school. I kinda like that word too.
I'm stoked to start cosmetology school.
There's so much random stuff I want to express on this blog post.
You might as well quit reading, it's just be rambling.

I've been doing hair for so long, and now I'm finally going to be DOING IT FOR REALZ!
Lol, the "z" at the end added effect.... Anyways.
I seriously am so nervous excited. I just can't believe my dream is coming true.
Hopefully I like it.
Oh, and this picture? If you can't tell I'm obsessed with Breast Cancer stuff. 
Long story... No I don't "like" Breast Cancer... Smart Alec
This summer has been wayyyy to short.

All I ever do is work at the SnoShack.
But that's okay because on the bright side all I ever do is deposit money in the bank ;)
I love work, don't get me wrong.
I just envy those girls who sit around and get anything and everything they want all summer long.
I wanna sit and play Black Ops zombies, but no, life's not fair.
Maybe someday...

Hi, my name is Taylor BreAnna Jensen.
Nice to meet you. 
I'm the youngest of  two children.
Family with a mom and a dad.
I currently have three pets. Oscar, Frank, and Graycie.
I’m horrible about telling my sister how much I really care for her.
Yes, I am covered in freckles. No, I’ve never counted how many.
I love music in all sounds, colors, and genres.
I have the capacity to love unconditionally.
When I get nervous, I tuck my hair behind my ears consistently.
My dream car is a pink Bentley sports car.
Eventually, I want to have children. An even number of them.
I’d rather mow the lawn than do dishes.
It seems anything that has to do with computers comes naturally to me now.
I have a knack for doodling on anything in sight.
I'd rather be deaf than blind.
Water served in a glass tastes like fish water.

all I took, was taken.

"The rain falls because the cloud can no longer handle the weight. 
The tears fall because the heart can no longer handle the pain."

"The past can hurt. But the way I see it, 
you can either run from it, or learn from it." 
- The Lion King
"If there ever comes a day when we can't be together, keep me in your heart and I'll stay there forever." 
-Winnie the Pooh

"No one can change a person, 
but someone can be a person's reason to change." 

"I think that if you don't thank God for the good times, you shouldn't ask him anything when you're going through tough times."

Times are tough, and they're only gonna get tougher if I don't toughen up.
Geez Taylor, get a grip and realize you're going to be okay.

No, you're not. :(

redbox summer.

We're friends, you and I. And the thing about friends is, they talk about stuff.
So here it is. 
The paved surface below my feet is a refreshing change from that of the rest of the Mike Klauck Subdivision. The smoothness is, admittedly, a little disorienting; after being thrown and flipped for the better part of the day, I can't help but anticipate some hazard looming on the horizon. So, I'm anxious. Each foot is placed with heightened uncertainty as I feel increasingly more sure that the ground will suddenly fall from beneath my feet. I'm scared because I don't know what to expect next - I just can't be positive. I'm alone for a week, to fend for myself. I have friends I forgot I had. I have discovered a new part of myself, and I'm a little unsettled with the freeness, but I'm following myself back home. I'm on my own, and I can't wait for my support to be back home. But what do I know?

Yet another blog post I've wanted to come across for a while, and haven't gotten too.
It's just funny to me. I know it's a common theme to my posts, but things are changing. I don't have children of my own yet of course, but I'm starting to see what my parents went through while they were raising me and it makes me really, really, really appreciate them. More than I already do. Yeah, they denied me candy bars when checking out at Allen's. Yeah, I was disappointed and pouted the whole way home. But you know what? That was good for me. I needed that. It's got to be difficult to say no to your kid (and I'm sure that my parents lost lots of sleep over it. Haha), but I understand why it needs to be done. Sometimes "no" hurts, but it's the right answer in the long run. Some things just have to be denied so all things are not expected. 

That said, we all need limitations and restraints if we are expected to become civilized adults.

There really is no cool in school. But then again there is.
I'm going to be graduating next year! What in the what?
Where is all this time going? Really, who's taking my time?
I neeeeed it! I want it all back! Goodness I'm gonna throw a fit.
I think someone has cut down the amount of days in a year and forgot to tell us about it.
Isn't it crazy how you can look at a picture, and you are there?
You are captured, through light, on a permanent piece of paper.
How does that happen? Reflection is one thing I still don't understand.
I looked at a picture a few days ago of me and my fifth grade teacher sitting on a couch,
it was her birthday, and we all got her random items.
I remember just BARELY sitting on that couch, really. Fighting with josh because I wanted to sit next to Riley.
I remember it like YESTERDAY.
Now, I'm a freaking senior.
Sounds like sayonara.
Definition of sayonara: good-bye.
K so it doesn't really sound exactly like it, but I don't like goodbyes :(

Wanna know something on the good side though?
Freakin' ya.

you smile, I smile.

There's not a day that passes that I don't think about you, and how perfect our worlds are together.
We ended up this way because of all our hard-work and never ending friendship.
We always work together on anything that goes wrong, and get through it hand in hand.
I have unconditional love for you, and there's never ever a day that I don't try to give you less than that.
There are so many reasons why I love you, you are my own personal angel.
You're in my life for a reason, and I'm willing and able to let you help me and guide me in any way possible.
We may not always agree on everything, but when you smile, I smile. And that's all the reassurance I need that we can get by anything.
I am the luckiest.
I love you more than I could ever begin to say, or express. So I try to express reasons why I love you instead.
You are such an amazing example to everyone around you, and your never ending friendship gives everyone a motive to be better. Especially me.
Even when some people don't deserve your friendship ;) you give it to them anyway. Whether I like it or not!
You have the sweetest smile that gets me weak at the knees, especially when I'm the reason behind it.
I love how we don't always have to be loving on each other to know that we love each other.
We are different, and I wouldn't change it for the world.
We've had our fights, and our mistakes, but the worst thing a person could do is use someones past as a weapon. You should never judge anyone by their past, because they obviously don't live there anymore.
And we're both great with that. We've picked up baggage from past relationships and helped one another move on, or throw it out. I love you for that.
Even when we weren't together, we still were mentally.
Even if we aren't together, we always will be in our hearts.
You're the best thing that has ever happened to me, and I am so glad you are growing up to be such a wonderful handsome son of God.
You're graduating and moving on to the real world, you'll be serving the Lord soon before you know it.
And when you come back, you can teach me all about it. Now it's up to me what I want to believe, but I know you'll help me. And I'll help you with whatever you need.
We're growing up so fast, and I am completely amazed that I've only known you for three years.
It seems like a lifetime.
Maybe we were good friends in a previous life, because I can read you better than you can!
Maybe I was you in a previous life O_o
Shawn, Congrats with your graduation.
You'll go off and achieve wonders and dreams.
You have no idea how fast you make my heart beat, knowing you're mine through thick and thin.
I hope we stay this way forever, and I'm sorry for the pain I've caused.
I know you're sorry too.
I love you, don't forget that okay?
Love love love love you.

color scale.

This just proves why girls see so much more in life, and why we're so 'confusing'.
Because boys are dumb, and girls have a huge wide range perspective. :D

shawn chose.

it was fun.
