I have so many things to be thankful for. I try not to just let it be the one day a year I give thanks. I come from a loving home with two wonderful parents and an adorable ten year-old brother. I was blessed to have the opportunity to go to a religious school from elementary school to my freshman year of high school. I have a faith foundation that is strong and a wonderful church that is my second family. I am thankful for the many friends I have and how they are there for me in any situation. I am SO thankful I can go to college and get a top dollar education. I’m glad I can walk around without fear of being targeted because I am a woman. In the United States I have so many freedoms that over half over the world does not have. I am passionate about the United States and grateful for our forefathers who founded this nation.
Goooooo Eagles!! November 13, 2009
This week my blog post topic is school spirit. I am a True, Blue, Georgia Southern Eagle. I am passionate about my university and show it in my actions. One way I personally show my spirit is my various affiliations with Georgia Southern. I have been involved in many different organizations on campus. A few of these are BUILD, Southern Ambassadors, LeaderShape, Football Recruitment, Grand Slam Marketing, and Campus Recreation and Intramurals. Each of these organizations benefit Georgia Southern and its students. Southern Ambassadors is probably the best way I show my school spirit. I get to talk to hundreds of students and parents interested in Georgia Southern. I am able to show my spirit through this organization. I put in many hours of my time for free.
I also enjoy going to sporting events. I have been to every home football game except two since I’ve been a student here. I think we are so lucky that we are able to attend all of the games so I take advantage of it. I also enjoy going to baseball and basketball games. The men’s are women’s basketball teams are playing tonight at Hanner. Check out their full schedule.
Comment on a Friend’s Blog November 6, 2009
My classmate, David Zaremba, wrote a blog post about the hassles of registering for classes. I want to second his thoughts and say it’s time for a change in the PR Department!

My favorite books as of right now are the Twilight series by Stephanie Meyer. I was very reluctant to start reading these books because I thought it was plain weird. I was finally convinced, and now am obsessed! I’m on my third time reading through them. They combine humor, romance, and action into one book.
I just got my mom started on reading them two weeks ago. I gave her the first two books, and she’s already read both. She can’t wait for the most recent movie, New Moon, to be released. She’s waiting to read the next two books after she sees the movie.
Reading is one of my all time favorite hobbies. It’s hard to be consistent with reading non-school related text books during the school year, but over the breaks, I will make up for lost time. This past summer I read around 30 books. Sometimes I’ll go through a whole one in one day. I am a nerd, but I can’t help what I enjoy to do.
