September: 30 Day Challenge, one second of video a day

If there’s one thing you should know about me, it’s I love to film things. I think I get that trait from my Dad. Growing up, I can always remember him with a video camera. When we were really young, it was a huge one that he carried on his shoulder. Thankfully, for the health […]

Write it and Run with it

I’ve been involved in a few different sports throughout my life: basketball, cross country, track, softball, and volleyball. I think the biggest reason I got into sports was because of my older brothers. I wanted to do whatever they did. The two that I enjoyed the most were basketball and running. Through high school, I played intramural basketball, but […]

A few weeks ago, I traveled with my boyfriend and his family to Yosemite National Park in California. I realize I keep calling him my boyfriend, as if he doesn’t have a name. So y’all know, his name is Zach. So back to my train of thought, I went to Yosemite with Zach and his […]

Gigantically, (is that a word?), isn’t […]

Griffin for Life

On April 5th, I attended the scholarship gala at my college, Chestnut Hill. This was my third year on the planning committee. Giving back to CHC has become so important to me and I’m grateful I can do so. I not only received a great education there, but I learned invaluable life lessons. The people I […]

Sentimental

A couple weeks ago, my brothers and I went to my mom and dad’s house to begin cleaning out the remainder of our things. I “moved out” of the house two years ago. I put moved out in quotes because I’ll be honest, I’m there a lot for dinner. I spend the night sometimes just to […]

Published

I’ve been published! I’ve been submitting to a variety of publications since finishing school and I finally got a story published. It’s a pretty cool feeling. I remember when I was in graduate school my teacher told us that we would get our fair share of rejections. At the time, I thought it wasn’t very […]

Back to regular programming/New nephew
