I miss my family. They left a few days ago now, but it was so nice to have them here. I kind of got used to them not being around, but when they visited it made me extra sad when they left. They did promise though that we will see each other as frequently as possible so I can be in my brother's life in a big way. I'm not sure how often that will be- probably not too often- so I'm not getting my hopes up.

Homework calls.

...in a completely non-creepy way with my little brother. He is an absolute DOLL! I can't get enough of him! Literally every free second I've had since they got here has been spent with him. I used to think I'd be jealous if a new baby came along, but that is so not the case. This child is an angel, and he's adorable, and I want him to live with me! Obviously that's impossible, but I reallllly want to see him, a lot. I want to be in his life so he grows up knowing me as his awesome big sister, rather than someone who only visits from time to time. I asked Mom and Brett abotu this, and they said we'll figure something out because they agree it's very important, and mature of me to realize that :)

Awesomely enough, Mom and Brett are treking out here so I can meet Nicky! It's not tooooo long of a drive, and they'll just be staying with me at Eileen and Daryl's. I am soo excited! They're leaving and arriving here tomorrow. I can't wait! I'm totally spazzing out. I can't wait to meet NICKY! AHHHHH!

I have this particular candle from Yankee Candle, the scent is Mandarin Cranberry... and OMG it is heaven. It doesn't sound all that interesting, or even all that difficult to create, but somehow I am absolutely addicted to it! I love candles in general, but I cannot get enough of this one. Whenever it's burning, I keep leaning over to get a whiff. MMMMM!

Still no decision on when I can meet Nicky, but it's ok. I know it will come soon. One of these weekends coming up that I don't have a meet or anything, I think I'll take like two days off to go visit my family. I hope the coaches will understand... I assume they will, because I'll promise to train lightly at my old gym just so I don't lose anything at all.

New national rankings came out and I'm like 13th. How flippin' crazy is that? Crazy in a good way, of course, but crazy nonetheless. I just became elite recently, how could I be so highly ranked so soon? I'm not complaining, just very suprised!

I cannot believe it, I have a baby brother! He was born today, two days after the due date. His name is Nicholas Michael Doolin, but they're calling him Nicky. Mom sent me pictures of him online, and I REALLY want to meet him! Unforunately things are busy so I can't just yet but I cannot WAIT to go see Mom and Brett and baby Nicky! He is SOOOO cute, and AHHH I AM SO EXCITED!!!

♡ The new big sister, Karrianne!

I love meets. Even though I don't usually do too well in them, I'm still young and have time. So I'm excited. I just love competing, it makes me feel like this is all worthwhile, even if I don't do well.

I've been really tired lately, and I'm not really sure why. Maybe I should start drinking coffee or something. I know ti's not that good for you, but like drinking one cup every few days probably isn't too bad. I dunno. Time to stop rambling!

Hmm... I'm not really sure what to say today. Suprisingly enough, Karrianne Dower-Doolin cannot think of anything to say. Take a picture! This must be a first!

Haha. Anyway, some new girls have come to the gym lately which is cool. It's always great to have some more people to talk to! And there's this one girl Haley who is actually from Denver, so she knows a lot of people and places in the area, which really helps socially. But yeah. That's about it for now!

I really regret not updating in so long because I missed writing about so many things! But oh well. It's too late for that.

After the Classic, I went back and Tyler kissed me and we started dating... but then broke up in October. We're still friends though. Other than that, not too much to say right now but I'll be better about updaing! it's my new years resolution!

AHH! I am really... really... actually AT THE U.S. CLASSIC! We're in Tennessee... and it's definitely very different than Colorado. But I am soo stoked to be here! I am so excited that I qualified to be here at the last minute, and so soon after becoming an elite!

I am not expecting nor hoping to do too well tomorrow. I'm aiming for no major mistakes, that is my goal. I know I won't make it to Nationals, but if I stay healthy I might be able to next year, and getting to experience a big meet like this before will probably prove to be something very good. So needless to say I am very, very happy.

I am also very happy because my family has suprised me by flying out here to see me compete! Like, my entire family! It's really nice to see them all, and to see them all together, despite the fact that they're two separate families really. But the split wasn't too bad, and it's been a while now, so it makes me really happy that they can be united. Especially for me :)

I am also really happy because last night Tyler told me he liked me! We were on the phone, and I was telling him how nervous I am about this competition, and he was like, "well, Karri, I will be so proud of you no matter what happens. You're doing something so exciting and I wish I could be there with you," and then he paused and said, "I... I really like you, Karrianne. And I don't just mean as a friend." When he said that I kind of shreiked and I was like, "oh my gosh, me too!" But for some reason it got awkward immediately after that, so we decided to talk about it when I got back and he wished me luck and blew me a kiss through the phone. Aww :)

So yeah, no matter what happens I will be happy!
