Marketable Skills

Hello All,

A few weeks ago I got an emails from Webucator asking me to write a post about what skills I thought were important to have when looking for a job. I thought this would be a fun post because as a college blogger I know that a lot of my readers are around the college age as well and soon we'll all be looking for our first real job. 

1. I think you need to know how to handle yourself on social media
I don't think you should be bad mouthing your boss, co-workers or company online as if comes off bad not only on yourself but your company as well. Although I don't think you should judge one what you do during your personal time either. 

2. You should be able to use basic computer programs (i.e. word)
All the classes I've taken say that word, powerpoint and excel are programs you will use time and time again so just make sure you can do the basics.

3. Being able to continuously learn & problem solving.
Learning new things is a way of life. You are constantly going to thrown curve balls and you need to be able to find your way around it. 

4. Be flexible
As much as you like things a certain way things won't always go that way so you need to try new things as you go. 

Those are what I think are important when starting your first real job, what do you think is important? Let me know in the comments below.

Disney Cruise 2014 Recap: Trip in Review {1}

Hello All,

I'm back from my cruise and I have so many ideas for posts and I can't wait to start writing them but I am pretty exhaust so I figured I start with a quick one for my recap feature.

The 11 days went so fast and we did so much so I figured I should start with a quick review.

Day One Friday May 16th:
Fountain in the lobby of the Grand Floridan
I flew down to Florida with my Grandmother and checked in at Grand Floridan for the night. We explored the resort and had dinner with the rest of our travel party.
Day two - Saturday May 17th: 
The Entrance to the ship
We headed over to the ship and boarded the Disney Fantasy for our cruise! We spent the day exploring, going to the welcome show and just hanging out.
Day three - Sunday May 18th:
One of the paintings in the Royal Court
Our first full day was a sea day, which was once again spent exploring the ship!
Day four - Monday May 19th:
Meet and Greeting Ariel
On our next sea day, I met a bunch of characters and went a exploring on the ship while his parents enjoyed themselves for a while.
Day five - Tuesday May 20th:
A view of the beach!
On Tuesday we docked at St. Martin and had a beach day. It was so relaxing and fun! 
Day six - Wednesday May 21st:
On the boat ride to St. John
Our second port of call was St. Thomas/St. John and we did a tour of St. John and saw some really beautiful sights.
Day seven - Thursday May 22nd:
Donald soared like an Aqua Duck
Thursday was our final sea day! We had bunch at Palos and just kind of lazed around the boat.
Day eight - Friday May 23rd:
Anchor on Castway Cay
Friday was our last day and our Castaway Cay day. This one was such a fun day and I can't wait to write about it.
Day nine - Saturday May 24th:
Chandiler at Bay Lake Towers
Today was the day we got off the boat and headed over to Disney World. We were staying at Bay Lake Towers and lazed around because we were all so tired.
Day ten - Sunday May 25th:
We spent the day in Magic Kingdom and saw there new parade! It was really good and I have pictures to share.
Day eleven - May 26th:
I didn't take any pictures on the day we flew home but I went on editing spree on my flight home and chatted with Mama J for like 3-4 hours when I got home.

On my blog I will sharing posts about different topics and aspect about my cruise in an overview basically. If you want a more detailed account, then you can read about. Before I started blogging I joined a website called Disboards which is a Disney Fan discussion website. On Disboards people do these things called "Trip Reports" where they give detailed accounts of everything they did. If you think that reading a more detailed account is something you'd be interested, I would love for you check it out by clicking here.

Unlike blogging I don't have a schedule, I post whenever I get a chance and the post are normally slightly more detailed then an averagve blog post. Because of that I will be posting the links on my Facebook Pages for anyone who would like to check them out.

Now, I'm done with my shameless plug but I have one more aspect of housekeeping to mention. Much like Getting Ready to Set Sail, these posts will be posted every Thursday and the occasionally Tuesdays, making this the feature that replaces getting ready to set sail.

Okay, that is all. If you have any questions about Disney Fantasy or Disney Cruise in general feel free to the live the questions below and I'll try my best to answer them.

Selife Esteem

Hello All,

About a month ago I wrote a post about things I never thought I'd do. Everyone who commented on it remarked on the same thing. That they thought it was awesome that I gotten to a point where 8 out of `0 times I think I'm pretty.

I started thinking about when I started to feel this way. And then it hit me, I started to feel more confident when the selife craze started. 

When the craze really started I couldn't understand why someone would constantly wanted to take pictures of themselves. But one I tried it and I've been addicted every since.

One thing I've noticed is right around that time my confidence sky rocketed. Some may say it was because I found away to hold my head or because there are instagram filters that brought out my eyes. 

But I think its something else. Every time I looked at the picture I saw something beautiful about the color of my eyes or the way my hair would fall. But when looking at the pictures I didn't see the girl in the mirror that I felt like I saw when I brushed my teeth in the morning, I saw someone who was confident and would think "Damn, I want to be that girl!". And I was!

I also created a personally rule for myself. I refused to take selfies unless I was having a good day. I don't put my forward facing camera on if my face feels like it was breaking out or was too sleepy. That way I wasn't taking ugly pictures. 

For a lot of those reasons I think that the selfie craze has brought up a lot of girls self esteem.

Summer Goals 2014

Hello All,

I'm back!

I had a fantastic time on my cruise and can't wait to tell you all about it! I have some ideas for post pertaining to the cruise and can't wait to share. I just got back last night and I'm in the process of unpacking, getting back to reality and edit my pictures to share.With that being said it will be a few days before I start completely bombarding you with Disney Cruise related posts!

Also before I beginning today's post I want to thank all my fabulous guest poster who took over my blog while I was away. I hope you all enjoy reading from them as well as found a few new blogs to read.

The week before I left on my cruise was a lot of wrap up for my sophomore year of college and I wanted to get it all out of the way before my cruise. As I mentioned in one of the post this past school year has been the hardest year of school yet. So, I wanted to be done with those icky wrap-up post before I left now we can focus on summer and the results of my trip.

Sorry, that was a bit a tagent but the whole reason I share it was because one of those post were the results of my Sophomore Year goals. That made me realize that by sharing my goals at the beginning and then going back and sharing how did, held me accountable. 

So, I decided there was somethings I wanted to get done this summer so why not create Summer 2014 goals!

1. Redecorate and Reorganize my Home Bedroom
Even though I spend about 8 months a year in a college dorm, I really want my home bedroom to show my personality. I feel as if I have never had a bedroom at home do that. But 2 factors made it a little easier, 1. last summer I moved into basement at Mama J's house and 2. For my birthday Mama J got me some accersory to help decorate my room at go along with the theme I want. As for the theme you'll have to wait and see if and when I finish the room. 
2. Read & Review on the Bloggy 3 Different Books
One of my New Years Resolution was to read 7 books this year and before my cruise I had not completed one. I just don't have time during the school year but I'm thinking if I read most nights before I go to sleep I should be able to read 1 book a month. And of course when i finally finish a book I till tell all you wonderful people out there in internet world what I thought of the book. 
3. Try a New Food Each Week
So, I'm a really picky eater. But this summer I want to try a different food each week so that I can expand my palate. What are you some of your favorite interesting foods you like? Let me know in the comments, maybe I'll try them.
4. Go on 4 Different Cool Day Trips or Adventures
This summer is going to be different then any other because this summer I will have a job, a car, money to put in a gas tank and some amazing friends. So, this year I really want to go on some awesome day trips so places I don't normally go.
5. Get Back into Shape
Although I've never really been in really good shape but this pas year while I was dealing with everything else working out was put on the way back burner and now I am so out of shape, I am ashamed of myself. But this summer I'm going to get back into it and maybe one even be able to cross some running goals off my bucket list.
6. Visit My Different College Friends
I have made some amazing friends this year and last year but when I go home I feel like I never get to see them. This year though I'm not going to let that happen and go and visit or invite people over. 
7. Relax, Renew and Prepare for Junior Year
After this last semester all I can think about is sleeping all day, everyday but that isn't going to work. Instead all of the things above are in some way going to help me have a great summer and that is exactly what I need. 

Do you have any goals for the summer? Let me know in the comments below!

Memorial Day 2014

Hello All,

I want to start today's post off by first off saying thank you to all the Men & Women who have or are currently or might one day serve in our Armed Forces. As well as the strong families who support them day in and day out. I want you to know you are in my thoughts and prays. 

Today I am currently flying home after my 10 day long vacation! I'm so excited to share with you all the amazing things I did and am working on creating a feature for the blog to share it. I also plan to do a few videos for my vlog channel and share LOTS AND LOTS of pictures. As of Saturday night there were about 100 edited photos from the first 3 days! 

I have some ideas of what I want to share with all of you but if you have questions or want a specific post done let me know and I'll try my best to accommodate your wishes. I'm crossing my fingers I'll have the first post ready for Thursday but between traveling home and getting back to reality and I can't make any promises.

Pack Your Bags...5 Tips for International Travel {A Guest Post}

Hello All,

Today's lovely guest post is by the lovely Kelly who is an expert on traveling. Check out what she has to say about traveling internationally. 

Hi, I'm Kelly. I am a wife, teacher, foodie, traveler and author of the blog, A Lovely Life Indeed. I live in the Boston area and also, part time in a tiny coastal village in the Northwest corner of Galicia, Spain. I write about love and marriage, about travel, both in Europe and around New England, and also, inspirational musings on life and wellness. Join me. 

Now that spring is here, people may be starting to plan their summer vacations and summer time is a popular time for international travel. If you have your passport and you're ready to go, consider these five tips to put your mind at ease before you even get in line for security.

1. Scan your passport and email a copy of it to yourself. Make sure your photo and passport number is visible. If for some reason, you lose your passport, it will make it easier for you to get it re-issued if you have evidence of the documentation. You can access it from any computer in the world.
2. Call your bank and credit card company. Let them know your travel dates and that should reduce any chance of your charges being denied overseas...perils of living in times of identity theft.
3. Speaking of banking, make sure you have a 4-digit pin for the ATM; otherwise you may not be able to use the foreign machines. You can always change it back when you get home.
4. Call your bank and find out their partner bank overseas. If you use these for your ATM withdrawals, you will not have to pay the ATM fees.
5. Find out what your credit card charges in foreign transaction fees. One of the main benefits of the Capital One Ventures card, in addition to miles accumulation, is no foreign transaction fees. If your card charges exorbitant transaction fees, make sure you have cash and save the credit card for only the emergencies. Save where you can. 

They're simple tips, but they can make a real difference. Knowledge is power and having things taken care of before your trip can save a hasty decision in the heat of crisis. 

Buen viaje!

Thanks for all the great advice! Hope this advice helped some of you as well. You can also find Kelly on: TwitterBloglovinInstagramPinterest and Google+.

What I Love Wednesday....Blogging {A Guest Post}

Hello All,

Today I'm at St. Thomas and St. Marteen, I have no clue what I'll be doing but you guys should all check out this awesome guest post I have planned for all you lovely people so check her out!
            Hi! My name is Natalie and I write for a little blog called Finding My Voice. I am so excited to be guest posting for Emma today. I am also excited to be writing about a topic that Emma and I talk a lot about. And that is, blogging.

            I’ve been blogging for a while now. In August, I will be officially be a blogger for four years, the first blog running from then to April of 2012. I guess that it’s a safe assumption that I love blogging. The question is why? However the answer to that question isn’t as simple.
            I like blogging mainly because it pushes me to write everyday. Writing is something that I’ve always enjoyed. I’ve been writing for my school’s newspapers (both high school and college), since I was 15 years old. I however recently decided to make my blog into a career, and actually become a writer when I walk the stage at graduation in a couple of years. To be a full time writer, you have to do a lot of writing to pay your bills. Needless to say, blogging prepares me for that. 
            Someone whose close to me often says that music is therapeutic for him. Well, in some ways, writing is a sort of therapy for me. Blogging has been there for me to vent when I’m mad, as a place to work things through when I was upset, and a place to just let me express myself, and my emotions. In high school, I used to post more personal posts about my personal life. I remember a post from Notations called “To Someone”, where I basically wrote about the guy that I was in love with at the time. I was really upset, and writing that post was some sort of therapy for me to get all of those hurt emotions out. Unfortunately, my crush decided to read that blog. That was kind of awkward.
            One of the nicest compliments ever is for someone to go up to me and say ‘I like your blog’. I work hard writing entries, and I often compare myself to being the next Carrie Bradshaw. Writing in some ways, is a part of me. I always worry that my writing isn’t the greatest, which was a fear of my early days of blogging. Over time, I’ve noticed an extreme amount of improvement in my skills as a writer. Because of my blog, I honestly can sit down to write down a long paper and have no trouble writing it. I think that’s important too, because it’s something that I will need to be able to do as I begin to have more than a blog, and articles to worry about.
            One of the biggest things that I like about blogging is the sense of community that I get from being a part of it. Bloggers are everywhere, if you look careful enough. They are great people, and they love writing, and they have feelings too. We love it when people comment our posts. In my case, it still shocks me that people read my post. The sense of support that you see through out the blogger community is strong, because you can feel us being there for each other.
            I’m a blogger. I’ve written about love, I’ve written about music, and I’ve even written about Newtown. I’m proud of that title, and no matter how many editor titles that I hold, that’s the one that I will wear with the most honor. 

You can also check me out on my blogmy blog's facebook page and its twitter.

Your Perfect Pup {A Guest Post}

Hello All,

I'm so excited about this guest post because its all about one of my favorite topic...PUPPIES! So, please enjoy this lovely guest post by Lindsey!

Hi ya’ll!
I’m Lindsey from Lindsey’s Thoughts. Emma asked me to guest post for her and I jumped at the chance! However, with finals and such I’m getting this to her rather late, so I’m sorry if I caused you angst! However, Emma was generous enough last November to feature me in her College Blogger series, and I have wanted to repay the favor ever since. This is the perfect way!
Anyways, I was looking through Emma’s posts to find something to write about that would be relatable to ya’ll and came up with the perfect idea: puppies and what they entail! I’m looking forward to getting a corgi pup next year (right after graduation hopefully!) so I knew this would be a good topic for me to research to get prepared.

First off, I googled “how to find your perfect dog breed”. I’m definitely smitten with adorable little dogs because I can’t lift an 80-pound lab. I decided to do two of these little quizzes that help you out in deciding your perfect breed.

I started out with this one at Pedigree.

These were the top picks for me! And thankfully, cardigan welsh corgi is one because that’s my dream pooch!

Thankfully, a corgi is in both! Obviously, I’ve already planned out my future dog. I blame Paige from The Sticky Note Addict....

To continue, I thought about where to buy stuff for your new furry daughter or son. I have friends that love their pooches very much and go to Petsmart and the like on almost weekly bases to buy a toy or a treat for their dog. I’m not going to do that because you can buy dog toys and treats at places like T.J. Maxx, Marshall’s, and Home Goods! I found the perfect dog bed in Home Goods the other day for less than $30. They also have a large selection of toys, treats, bowls, and even poop bags. And really, who wants to pay full price for a bag you’re just going to throw away? #notme. If you want to get really thrifty with your poop bags, reuse grocery bags!

Now, I’m a sucker for a well trained dog. To save money on going to a trainer, look at books on Amazon (and don’t forget about Amazon Prime free 2-day shipping!). Likewise, you can find dog food and other puppy necessities there for only a percentage of what name brand stores would charge you. I think the biggest mistake people make is chaning up the rules for the dog. If you don’t want your dog on your furniture, then your furry friend can’t sleep on your bed. It’s only fair.
Also, make sure to socialize your pooch! Our dog always had a cat around so she was well prepared whenever she went to the kennel if we went on a trip.

Definitely watch YouTube videos. I personally love watching Mocha the Corgi find herself in the mirror. It’s always a good time. And yes, my roommate doesn’t understand how I find it so entertaining, but I do.

Be ready for your puppy to trash things. My family was really lucky and our dog never really chewed anything. However, most dogs do. One of my best friends has a toy poodle who loves to untie shoes. So, make sure everything is neat and tidy (and where your dog can’t get to it).

The last crucial thing I have for you: make sure to spend time with your pup. Especially when you first adopt/buy. This way, your pup can find its place at home. So, go on Friday after work so you have all weekend to play and get to know your knew son or daughter!

I hope ya’ll have a wonderful day! 

Thank you again Lindsey for guest posting. I have to say that I agree with the Pedigree quiz because I got my favorite and dream pooch the English Bulldog!

Good-Bye School, Hello Summer {A Guest Post}

Hello All,

I'm so excited to share this awesome week of guest posts. The first one comes from one of my favorite bloggers, Lauren from Little Lion Gal. She is so sweet and has some awesome advice to rewind after the semester. Enjoy!

Hey everyone! I’m Lauren and I blog over at Little Lion Gal. I just finished my first year of college as a nursing student and will be starting summer courses this week. I’m the oldest of 3 with a ton of cousins and family I love. My blog is centered around college, and everything a young teenager goes through. You’ll find tips for college, lessons on life, wishlist, my dream wedding, and so much more on the blog.

 Every college student knows you end of the semester is extremely stressful. You have finals and papers due. Many hours are spent studying and I'm sure everyone has had their breakdown. But guess what?! It's all over! You can relax and distress. Leave those bags and boxes packed up they can wait.

Here are my tips on how to distress from the semester and start your summer off right. You deserve it after a long year. 

Binge watch your favorite show! Or try a new one. I would throw in some movies while you're at it. I know I'll be watching Gossip Girl and possibly a new show.

It might sound crazy to read after you just got out of classes but nothing's better than reading a nice book out in the sunshine. Make sure you read light, airy books I help you relax. Maybe a nice summer book to get you into the season. I'll be reading Jenny Hans Summer series books. 

Manicure and Pedicure
Having someone else do your nails is so relaxing. Plus it's nice to have pretty toes and finger nails for summer.

Yep this is probably one of the best things to do after a long semester. All of us college students are sleep deprived, especially after finals week. All of my friends have been sleeping away the last few days.

Paint or Craft
One of my favorite ways to relax is to paint or do some type of craft. I promised a few people paintings so I will be doing them this summer. I'm hoping to do a scrapbook for my first year of college, and a smashbook for fun this summer. It's always fun to be creative.

Sit Outside and Listen to Music
Sit back, relax, listen to some fun, upbeat music, and enjoy the start to summer. It's nice to not have to spend all day in the library.

Meet Your Friends From Back Home
You just spent months away from them. It's time to meet up and catch up. It can be so relaxing to just sit around and talk with old friends. Not much is involved.

I know that I love to shop. Honestly I think every girl loves to shop. If you need an excuse to shop it can be that summer is here and you need new clothes. Nothing wrong with that! 

I hope everyone had a great end of the semester and they have a wonderful summer. Wear your sunblock and spend some time relaxing!


Thanks Lauren for the awesome tips, I'm definitely going to do some of these when I return from my cruise! 

You can find Lauren on TwitterPinterest & Instagram.

Sophomore Year Goals Wrap-Up

Hello All,

I know that over the last week I have been bombarding all of you with end of Sophomore Year wrap up! But this one is going to be last one, at least from what I see now. This one is the one that I have sort of been looking forward to because I want to see how I did on my goals. (You can see where I started here and where I was after fall semester here)

As I said many times over the last few days I feel as if I have grown leaps and bounds the past year. But a lot of the growing up I did over the past few months are in places I didn't even realize I would grow up. But I do know having goals helped me this year. I always knew I would share how I did with all of you and that help me stay accountable to myself. Now that I said all of that let's see how I did with all of that.

Work in progress
Not Even Attempted

1. Get My G.P.A. Up!
I did a really good job fall semester getting my GPA up and I came in for the spring semester ready to work my ass off and keep getting my GPA up. But I had two classes that I just was struggling in. I'm not ready to give up and this goal is one that I will bring back for my junior year goals.

2.Stay Organized
Looking at my room at the end of the semester you probably never would have guessed that the organization had improved at all but it had I swear. I also found a way to organize my planner that I think I like, plus I might have found a way to organize my notebooks that I like. Much like my GPA I think this goal will follow through to my junior year goals. 

3. Make a To-Do List
This semester I really tried to make to do list but I really only did it when I was stress. So much like the other two I will continue to try this junior year.

4. Be the best officer I can be
As you all probably know I have decided to step down from being the secretary of my future teacher club mainly because I am no longer an education major. I know that I had my ups and downs as an officer but I think that I did the best job I could do and no way regret anything that I did.

5. Create a Budget
I really wanted to be good and create a budget but I never got around to it.

6. Eat Healthier and Get In Shape
I did so bad on this goal I don't even want to talk about it.

7. Have a Friend Come to Visit from Back Home
One of my best friends Tori came to visit. You can read about it here.

8. Make a big life decision
This goal was already crossed out at the end of last semester. But for those of you who don't know, I decided to no longer be an education major. I just want to thank again all those people who helped me make this decision and have supported me since.

9. Become More Social
I am so proud of how social I have become this year and can't wait to see what the next year will be as I know I will become even more social.

10. Keep Up With This Blog
I must say that I did a great job keep up with this blog. I create a traditional that I go blogging hiatus when finals come around and I took one other week off when I need it. So, thanks for the support and for reading my blog. 

And that's how I did on my goals this year. I think 5 out 10 complete, 3 out of 10 in progress and only 2 our of 10 not never attempted isn't too bad. I'm ready for a break from school and I have some ideas of what I want to work on for next year. 

And right now or later this afternoon, depending on what time you read this I am flying to Florida for my cruise! I'm so excited but I will miss you guys while I'm gone. Make sure you come back here Monday-Friday and the Monday after to see all my awesome guest post that will happening. 

Thursday, May 15, 2014


Hello All,

I know I have been bombarding you guys with post end of the semester posts but its Thursday which means...

I leave for Florida tomorrow! And let me just tell you I am jumping off the wall! I was looking back at my notes of what this week's topic would be and I honestly can't remember what I was going to write. 

Although recently I found out that I would be doing 2 port adventures while on the cruise, one on each island with the exception of Castaway Cay which is fun to just sit on the beach and relax. I'm bring my camera so I will be sure to take pictures and share all about it with all of you.

At one point I was going to do research and find a bucket list of things I wanted to do on the cruise but then time got away from me and I decided that all I want to do is: spend time with my family, enjoy and soak up as much fun times as possible,collect pictures and stories to share with all of you and get some much needed reading in. I actually picked up copies of Fault in Our Stars, Gone Girl and Maze Runner. I don't think I'll get through all those books but still I would love to get some reading in. 

With this feature coming to end, at least for now, I wanted to leave all the links of the other aspect of these features for you to check them out if you are inclined.

When I return I plan to start another feature much like this recaping different parts of my cruise. I have one final post written for this week and then all next week and the Monday after will feature some awesome guest posts written by some awesome bloggers! Please be sure to check them out and show them some love.

10 Ten Moments of Sophomore Year

Hello All,

Although this year as been one of the hardest year by far I feel like I had a lot of great moments this year and I want to celebrate that as much as I want to celebrate the fact that i survived. I did a post like this last year which you can check out here.

Through the ups and downs of semester I am grateful for everything I got to experience. So, find out which moments/events were my favorite.

10. Being an officer of my Future Teacher's Club
It was a lot of work and sometimes a lot of stress but it was a lot of fun and I'm grateful that I got to work those two lovely ladies pictured above for the whole year and the 4 others who only serviced a semester. I learned a lot about myself and how to work as a team.

9. Relay for Life 2014
Relay for Life is one of the most awarding moments that my college does. I love that the future teacher club has a team each year. This event is always fun!

8. Homecoming
This year was my first year of going to homecoming, either at college or high school. At my college they have parade that different organization has the opportunity to take part in, they also have a tailgate and of course the game. It was so much fun and I can't wait to go again next year.

7. Found Out I Was Going on My Cruise
Although my cruise isn't until next week and didn't actually take place during my sophomore year. Finding out that I was going on this cruise got me through this past semester by having something fun to look forward to.

6. Apple Banquet
This event was so much fun because everyone who went got a chance to celebrate all the hard work we put into our club this year and we got to celebrate all our accomplishments.

5. Big E
 This was my first year attending the Big E and all the food was yummy and we got to see some awesome exhibits.

4. Hunter Hayes (Both Concerts)
Yup, that's right I went to two Hunter Hayes concerts this year. The other was just a couple a weekends ago. But I have to say Hunter Hayes is one of the best performers I have ever seen life! Hannah and I both had so much fun together.

3. My bestie, Tori, came to visit me!
Tori is one my best and most trusted friends. It was great to get to see her especially because when I see her I can tell her anything and that weekend I had a much needed rant session/ Plus I always love seeing her, we always have bundles of fun no matter we do.

2. Wicked!
My amazing roommate brought me to see Wicked for my 20th birthday. It was probably one of the most creative gifts I've ever been given. Plus seeing Wicked was on my bucket list and I got to cross it off!

1. My First Byline!
Seeing my name in print was probably one of the most exciting things I've ever done. I got to cross getting something off my bucket list and in all honesty I never thought that it would actually happen. EVER!

Although life isn't always easy I am hopeful for what this summer will bring and I can't wait to see what happens in Junior year.

Also much like last year I made my Sophomore year video with all the pictures and videos from sophomore year. I encourage you to check it out! You do so by clicking here.
