About Me

I go to school at Georgia Southern University and am a Junior PR major. I have been here for 2 years now and previously went to school at Charleston Southern University in North Charleston, South Carolina. I transferred because the school was only 4,000 students and I wanted to get closer to UGA because that is where my brother goes to school. He and I were very close growing up so being far away from him and hardly seeing him was hard to do. I am originally from Pennsylvania and have moved a total of 9 times. I have a Bouvier named Oscar, which is a type of dog, who is now 3 years old and I miss him like crazy! I only get to go home for Christmas break and during the summer. This year I hope to get an internship back home otherwise I will work at the KinderCare Daycare and teach pre-school which is what I have done for the past 5 years. I miss my family like crazy and can not wait to see them when the school year is over! If you have any questions feel free to ask!!

Trouble!

I am having a lot of trouble trying to figure out how to put a link in my post and have a different name show up instead of the whole address. I have tried to use the chain link above the text box but it never seems to work. If anyone has any recommendations or if you can tell me what I am doing wrong please let me know!

First Time Blogger

I am in a Public Relations Writing class at Georgia Southern University and a requirement is to blog. Prior to the class I had heard of blogging and thought it was stupid. When I found out that I had to do it for this class I was not thrilled. I set up the account and began to blog. I did exactly what was needed and nothing more. I was just on here trying to figure out the posts that I need to put up for the week and realized that I was doing it all wrong! I had my separate categories for all the different parts for the class but I kept editing the already posted blog. I would open and add what was the next needed thing. When I was on my teacher’s website there was a video about each new blog and I knew something was wrong.

So I have not slept all night long because I have been hyper and rolling around trying to sleep so decided that I should try to be productive. Looking at all of the work that I needed to accomplish this week is lighter than the past two hectic ones. Although this would give some time to really concentrate on my blogs. This morning fooling around on here I saw the button at the top of the page above my site name saying New Post. I clicked it and of course it is what I was supposed to be doing all along. Whoops! I guess I will leave my previous ones the way that they are so that it does not look like I am just getting started. Luckily now I understand this whole blogging thing better and hopefully I just keep improving!

Fat Tuesday and Ash Wednesday

Today is Fat Tuesday and when I was little my family would always celebrate today. We would wear clothes the colors of purple, green or gold. Then at dinner time my mom would either buy the “King Cake” or sometimes she would bake it. This cake is always round and is actually twisted bread. There is a white icing that is on top and then sprinkles by color of purple, green and gold. Inside the cake there is a little plastic Baby Jesus and the person who gets the slice with the baby is supposed to have good luck for that year. In our family if you were the lucky person to get the piece with the baby then it was also your job the following year to buy the came or at least help my mom make it.

I am Catholic and this Wednesday is a special day. It is called Ash Wednesday and I go to a church service. At the service the Priest will apply ashes to my forehead as a sign of repentance. This day marks the first day of lent which lasts up until the day of Easter. Something that some Catholic’s do is from Ash Wednesday until Easter we do not eat meat on Friday’s. On these Friday’s we are also supposed to cut back the amount of food we eat and not pig out. We are also not supposed to eat meat on the day of Ash Wednesday. Many people think this is crazy and that they wouldn’t be able to do it but it’s not as hard as it sounds. If you forget it is not a big deal you just have to try hard to remember. During lent another thing that some families participates in is giving something up. Every year from Ash Wednesday we have to give up something that we do a lot of eat a lot. We do not have it at all during that period and then once Easter arrives you can do it again. I usually give up candy, soda or something unhealthy but lately I have been eating healthy. Any recommendations?!

  This is an example of a king cake! So yummy!
