I can't believe it's been so long since we posted last, but it's just really hard to post twinteresting things when you're not with your twinner 24/7, ya know? And especially since we didn't see each other for a whole 3 WEEKS!


This post. This post right here.  It's amazing. First of all, Hello Yasuko is one of our favorite blogs. She is always writing thoughtful, genuine posts about real life - things that are very personal and make you think. We not only loved this post because we are fellow twihards, but we liked it because it's sooo unbelievably true!

"while my sister and i were watching twilight
and i thought about a little twihard somewhere in the world
who genuinely loves those books or movies
who feels like they have to keep it quiet
because there are just so many voices saying it's worthless and/or stupid
and that people who like it are some kind of uncultured yokels
who don't know the meaning of real entertainment."


We are all about sharing your opinion and being open to others. Sometimes we like to be the poster children for Twilight, but sometimes it is a little embarrassing to admit our love for it because so many people think that being a twihard is dumb. A lot of people don't realize that everyone is passionate about something - whether it be music, dancing, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, food, WHATEVER! When someone likes something that you personally think is "dumb", it means a lot to them and I'm sure you like something that they don't.

 Let us all give things a chance before we declare our hatred for it, and let's take the challenge to
"talk about what you love and keep quiet about what you don't."

The day finally came that we have been dreading since forever. WE'RE SEPARATED! We knew it had to happen sometime, but didn't think it would come so fast. Taryn moved back up to Utah State while Taylor stayed home to start her mission papers.


I have always been more open to the idea of us moving on and living life as Taryn instead of Taryn and Taylor, but this has been so hard. I didn't prepare or expect myself to be so sad! Yeah, I'll be home a lot on weekends because of so many farewells and such, but it's just not the same. We didn't live together our first semester up here, and that helped separate us a teeny tiny bit, but Taylor lives 2 hours away from me, now.....not 2 seconds. We've been with each other 24/7 since we were in the womb and now we're not. Sometimes it feels like the freaking better half of me died for crying out loud! It's just an emotional, crazy journey that we are beginning. 

Day 1 was so hard, but day 2 has been much better. I'm learning how to rely on my Heavenly Father for comfort and guidance, and I can already tell that being in Institute will help a lot. Even though we aren't together, we are constantly texting, snap chatting, etc. and every night I look forward to our long chats on the phone. This will be crazy, but the special bond that we share has already been strengthened to levels I didn't even know existed. I never thought it could get any stronger than it was, but it has - and I couldn't be more grateful for that. We are both being brave and preparing for what's ahead! Love you Tayda Bayda! Friday can't come soon enough :)
