Why A Small College For Me

Saturday I visited a public University to go to an art meseum for my art class and as I'm walking around I see how different a big university is compared to my college.  And I came up with the following reason's why a small college is for me!

  1. Small Town Atmosphere -- not only is the college in a small town, but with the college is smaller, you know more people if not by name atleast by their face!
  2. Anywhere on campus that you need to get is in like 5 minutes range!  You could not do that on a big campus.  To get across campus on big campuses you sometimes have to drive or take busses!  CRAZY!
  3. Biggest class size is 30 people!  That is a tiny class size in a big university!  I love that the professors know me by need and I can feel comfortable going to them with any questions.
  4. The teacher teaches the class not TA's!
  5. Just the atmosphere in general:)

I couldn't imagine going to any other college!  I love my small town college!

This time of the year

It's that time of year.  You know what i'm talking about!

The time of year when school is wrapping up.  The time of year when it is finally starting to get and stay nice outside.  The time of the year when the sun is out until 8pm.  The tiime of year that everyone is outside.  The time of the year where kids are counting down the days of school.  The time of the year where lot's of test, exams and papers are happening.  The time where students (like me) are finding there motivation slipping.  Faster and faster.

All these things are definitely true!  All i want to do is a whole lot of nothing.  Every break I have and time spent at home, makes me ready to be home for the summer!  I have so much to do these next couple weeks, and I don't want to do any of it!!  Many people are in the same boat, leave a comment if you feel the same way so I know i'm not alone! :)  

To add on the busyness of school, I will be working more these next couple of weeks.  To add on top of that i have places I have to visit for papers.  Exams to study for and trying to find time to keep my sanity!

SO if you don't see much of me the next month, you will know why!  May 15 needs to hurry up!  22 days and counting...not that i'm counting ;)

Easter 2014

Happy Monday after Easter!  I hope everyone had a great Easter and got to spent time with family and/or friends!  Today I won't have classes, wohoo, but have to work back in the town of my college in the early afternoon so not really a day off!

Anyways, this Easter we spent it at my dad's girlfriends parents house.  We had a delicous meal, got to participate in an easter hunt and had a good time!  Here are some pictures from afterwards back at our grandma's!  She went with us for a couple hours, which I was glad to see her getting out of the house!  She is such a strong women!

 The fam!  I'm sad I am the shortest :(
 Grandma with Drew (my brother) & Me!  She's such a strong women!

He actually took a picture with me!

It was a great day and I definitely was worn out by the end of the day!  Let me know what you did for Easter!

Happy 7th Birthday Sam

Happy 7th Birthday to my Half Brother Sam!!!  I CAN'T believe he's 7 already!  Seems like just yesterday I found out mom was pregnant with him.  Or found out he would be another stupid boy (as I put it).  Or going to the hospital once he was born.  Or having him with me every single second possible while he was a baby!  And in a blink of an eye he's crazy!

Dear Sam,
Words can't explain how much I love you.  I don't think I would ever know when mom got pregnant with you about how much I would love you.  Your a crazy little boy, but you have a great future ahead of you.  I know you will make us all proud of you!  I don't know what I would do without you!

Happy Birthday chubba lubba!
Love Always,
Your Sister

Relay For Life 2014

Friday from 6pm til Saturday at 6am I participated in Relay For Life at my college.  I had never been to a Relay so I had no clue what to expect.  It was an amazing experience and I am so glad I took part in it!

Photo taken by Jenn N.
I had to be there at 5pm to help hand out ribbons!  Everyone that walked in got one, our team made them!

6pm was the start and opening ceremonies.  They did the survival walk, which was very cool!  All of my friends were there which was nice!  Plus some of the parents!
Photo token by Jenn N.

I spent the hours doing random things.  I walked tons of laps, just and talked with friends and parents, watched events going on like Jenn doing Locks of Love, Miss Relay, Best Friend Contest and other things.

My mom and Grandma also came for almost 2 hours so I got to hang out with them too.

It was a great time and i'll stop talking and show you pictures!!

 The entrance.  The Jungle was the theme!

These two are the reason why I relay!  Hope to get to do it for years and years to come!!

The track during Luminary ceremony. 
We used glow sticks to put in the luminaries.  
 One group did nail painting and I paid $5, but sadly they smudged so I had to take them off already!


 These were taken at 5am so not many people still around!!

Me and my RA!

These two are the soul behind why I relay <3  In honor of them.  I know they were looking down and smiling during these events.  I just know it <3

I actually had a lot of energy during Relay!  I also had to have 2 pops during it :P   When it got over at 6am,  I went to back to the dorm and then crashed!  The rest of the weekend was a lazy one!!
The we survived and are very tired picture!!
