End of Summer Semester

Sunday, July 30th, 2017

My online class is DONE! I am so relieved to have completed another year of summer classes on a strong note. I think I’ve been taking at least one summer course for almost 4 summer straight! But that’s the sacrifice for the degree right?! This class wasn’t hard, but it was challenging. Computer coding isn’t a strong suit for me, but through virtual teamwork and communication skills I was able to learn a lot and to complete all of my assignments. I don’t know if I’ll ever use the skills that I learned in this class in my future profession, but that’s not the point, the point is that I’m a better person for taking this challenging course and that I am now more rounded in my education. Always take the challenge with an open mind and you may just end up surprising yourself! 

This World is Human

Thursday, November 24th, 2016

There is something truly special about wandering the world. The amount of knowledge, perspective, and acceptance you gain is simply hard to fathom. It is infinite. I already feel changed. I have met people from many different countries, carried out conversations with them, and been shown what it means to be human. We are all one. We are all special. And, we all have something to give to this world. My study abroad experience has been nothing short of extraordinary. This journey has surpassed all of my beliefs and expectations. I am fully moved by this experience. I am forever changed. I am forever connected to the furthest corners of the world, with friends from New Zealand, Holland, Sweden, and beyond. And, I am forever filled with wanderlust, a need for diversity, and a desire to continue opening my mind to the wide world of difference around me. What I have realized, is that no matter how different, how odd, or how quirky we are as individuals or as an entire culture, in the end, we are only human. We are all human. And, we are one.


April Wellness Challenge

Wednesday, April 8th, 2015


Well-U and Scholastica’s Physical Therapy Program are holding an Wellness Challenge in the month of April, and I have decided to participate. During any two weeks of the month, we are to exercise for a total of 240 minutes in increments of 30 minutes. I am a fairly active person anyways, so I figured it would be worth being a part of. Lately, I have been getting my exercise through rock climbing, hiking, walking, and yoga, but I might use this challenge as motivation to try something I haven’t done in a while.
