Just another update

Hey guys, I’m here again, because I decided that for the time being, this will be my journal, essentially. Anywho, so I wanted to say that one, I have been SO excited about my glasses all day! Lol. It’s been great. And the other thing I thought I ought to mention is that I get the opportunity to go out to North Carolina this Saturday! Then my mommy also thinks I should update you on school and my volunteer job, so yeah, I guess I’ll do that too.

So yeah, about me and my new glasses. It’s just been funny how obsessive I’ve been with my new glasses. I can actually see things now. It’s crazy! I often times will push my glasses down to remind me of what I saw yesterday, then put my glasses back on to see how I can see now! Omg, it’s amazing! I wish I could better describe to you the miracle that has just taken place in my life, but oh man, it’s been a miracle. Anyway, so I’ve been super happy all day today (which is unusual). It was kind of funny, in my drama class today I went up to some people and I just said, all peppy, “hi guys!” and this girl in my class named Kimmy was like, “wow, Shannon you’re really happy.” Haha I thought it was great. But yeah it’s just been like that almost all day, just because I can finally see, and I’m so excited about it!

Anywho, so enough about my glasses (for now). Let’s talk about my adventure! I get to go to North Carolina to see my brother, sister-in-law, 2 nieces and my nephew this Saturday! I’m so jazzed! It really is my sweet, little, adorable nephew that has kept me going through some of these hard times (besides Brian Regan of course). Austin’s SO cute! Anyway, so I get to fly out there on my own on Saturday and then I come home on the 23rd, so I’m still here for Christmas. But yeah, I’m so super excited.

So about school. I surprisingly enough have all As once again. Except one A- but it’s in an AP class, it’s not the end of the term and it’s because I haven’t taken this one test but as soon as I take that it should go up to an A! So yeah, it’s okay that I have one A-. The most amazing thing I think about all of this though would be that I have an A in AP Biology, which would for sure be my hardest class. Anywho, I think that’s it about school……

Finally, volunteer job. I don’t know if we ever told you that I volunteer at the hospital every week, but I do. However, I think it would be the most boring thing EVER. I am on the pediatrics unit so I thought I could maybe play with the kids or something. Turns out, I was flat out wrong. Instead, all I get to do is push a button when a visitor comes and wants to get in to the pediatrics unit of the hospital. So I guess you could say that I am in charge of the security for the pediatrics unit on Mondays from 1:30 to 4:30 but I wouldn’t necessarily call it that. That sounds much more exciting than it really is. But it looks really good on college applications! Lol.

Yeah so I’m pretty sure that’s it. At least for right now. But please, let me know if you have any other questions!



  1. Hi Shannon,
    I just wanted you to know that I still read your blog and check for new postings frequently, so I have been excited to read your entries the past couple days. I hope you have a great trip and I will be excited to see you on the 23rd. Give Austin, Emma, and Brooklynn a hug for me.
    Love you,

  2. do we get to see pictures of your new glasses?

  3. yeah, eventually i will take a picture to show everyone

  4. Hey Shannon,
    I was in your dad's BYU ward and have been following the blog since the accident. About the volunteering: If you want to play with kids, change over to the Kid's Crew at Primary Children's. You do indeed get the opportunity to play with kids most of the time.
