Most Of April

Hello All,

If you're reading this I'm guessing you are going to give my blog a chance! So, thank you. Since I'm starting this blog towards the end of April and so much happened this month I figured I would do a quick overview in one post. 

The first weekend of April I was able to go to a New Teacher's Conferencethrough my future teacher's club. It was really cool to get to go to a conference for real teachers. I would be sitting inclasses with real teachers and learn a lot of skills that one day I will use in my classroom. I will also have the ability to go to this conference ever year so I will be even more prepare when I become a teacher. 

Next weekend my future teacher club went to Color Combat. Color Combat is like field day for six schools in our state's future teacher clubs to get to socialize and have fun. Each team only had 1 member from each school. My team was the purple pirates and we end up winning the whole thing. 2 of the games we got almost a perfect score.

The next two weekends were super crazy but a lot of fun. 

First event was Pencil Pals, which is an event that my future teachers club does where we match up members with second graders at a local elementary school. At the end of the school year they get to meet their pencil pals. I was so excited for this event because next year that will be one of my main responsibilities as an officer. 

That Saturday my college hosted a Relay for Life. I relayed with the future teacher's team. This year Relay for Life's theme was Disney. I was totally in in my element. They were playing Disney music and everything was Disney related. My team's mini themed was Toy Story. We did a bake sale to raise extra money. I had a lot of fun. Bonding with the future teacher club and walking around with my friends.

The next Wednesday we had our final meeting of the semester, it was the first meeting that the new e-board got to run. I'm so excited for next year, I think the new e-board has some great ideas for the club. 

That night we had our last Literacy Night of the semester. Literacy nights are when we go to local schools and do activities with the students there. At this literacy night the author came and brought her dog to meet the kids. The dog was so cute!

The next night was Hannah's 19th birthday. Our campus had comedy show so we decide to go to it with our friends, Manid, Heidi, Marissa and Allison. The opening act was Brent Morner, he was really funny. The main act was Chris D'Elia from NBC's show Whitney, he was really funny too. After the show we got to meet the comedians and get pictures with them.

On Friday we had Apple Banquet, which is a dinner to honor the top most actives member in each future teacher club within our Student Program. At the event we had dinner, got certificate, watched a slide show and got to celebrate all the hard work we've done.

Yesterday was the last Future Teacher's event of this semester. This year we got a grant to do repairs and fix up an elementary school. We spent the day from 8 in the morning until about 3 raking, planting and mulching. It was so tiring but a lot of fun and totally worth it. 

Last night I slept 12 hours because this month has been so busy. I then spent the day with Mama J, it was awesome to see her because I hadn't seen her in about 3 weeks which is really hard for a Momma's girl. Now its time to prepare for finals. I can't believe my freshmen year is almost over and that summer is coming. I can't wait to see what this summer and sophomore year has to in store for me. Wish me luck on my finals!

XOXO, Em. 


Hello All,

My name is Emma, and I will be host or blogger. I've been looking for a place to tell my stories and share my life. 

I'm finish up my freshmen year of college! I am double majoring in Elementary Education and History. I live on campus and love spending time with my friends. This year I was super involved in my future teacher's club on campus and next year will take on the rule of secretary! I'm so excited to start that next year.
Some other things you should know about me is that I have a couple of fandoms. Gilmore Girls, Boy Meets World and Disney are probably my biggest. I consider myself a television nerd and will watch just about any television show out there at least once. And my guilty pleasure (even though its not really a secret) is reality TV. But something that makes me unique as a college student is that I don't do drugs, smoke and have decide that I want to wait to drink until my 21st birthday. 

Now I'm going to introduce you to some of the most important people in my life.

First my mom, we'll call her Mama J because me and my friends call her Mama *insert my last name that I won't share online here***

This  picture of us at my senior prom almost a year ago. She is my best friend, my hero and my inspiration. She believes that I can do anything that I put my mind to. I know that I won't be half the person I am with out her. This picture really sums up our relationship because we are always laughing and having fun together, unless were having a typical mother/daughter fights. But I truly believe that we are an example of a real life Gilmore Girls. 

Next is my father, we'll call him Father because when I talk about him I call him Father.

I don't see him often because he lives in a different state but he's still important in my life. He is the reason that I love Disney, this picture is actually a picture of our last trip to Disney. I also think he's the person to blame for my love of pop culture because he loves old movies. 

Next is my oldest friend in the world, Amelia.

This is my favorite picture of us in the whole world from when we were in like fifth grade.

I met her in pre-school when we were about 3 years old. We grew up in 2 different towns about 30 minutes away from each other but we manged to stay friends. Now we go to schools in different states but we still have stayed close. When we little we told people we were sisters and now she might as well be my sister. She is one person that I know will be in my life through thick and thin. 

Next we'll do my friends from back home:
First is Tori

This picture pretty much sums up our relationship. She is the first friend other then Amelia who I was ever completely and 100% myself around. We love to joke around take funny pictures and just be funny. She's finishing up her junior year in high school but were still super close. While I'm away at school we write journal entries to each other to keep each other up to date on our lives. 

Then their Cayla

This is us at my senior prom. We met in my high school drama club when I was a sophomore and she was a freshmen. We have kept in touch while I'm at college through facebook, twitter, instagram and skype. I think our relationship has grown stronger and I think we'll be friends for years to come. 

Last is Hannah C.:

We met junior year of high school. We clicked almost instantly and she is always there for me no matter what I'm going through. We are complete opposites but couldn't get along any better. She decided not to go to college so I only get to see her when I go home but I know when we see each other we'll pick up right where we left off.

Then I have my friends at school:

First off is the best roommate I could have asked for, Hannah P. (Yup, two friends with the same name) LOL

She is awesome, we clicked almost instantly and hang out all the time. We live about 30 minutes apart when we aren't at school and have a lot of the same interests. She's a nursing major and I think will make an awesome nurse one day. (Oh yeah she's the one on the right)

Next is Heidi:
I unfortnately don't have any pictures of her on my computer. I met her originally at orientation but we didn't really become friends until about last October. She's a library science major and works at a library already. 

Finally is Mandi:

We became friends, strangely through us realizing I was friends with her ex-boyfriend who is very social and almost EVERYONE on campus knows him. She gives me a run for my money with how much she talks. I talk a lot too. She's a pysch major. 

All though there are MANY more important people in my life these are probably the ones who I will talk about the most, at least at this point. I hope many of you will join along for my ride through the rest of my college career, itls bound to be exciting. 

XOXO, Em <3
