Future Teachers of America- The Career Fair

Hello again!

In case you didn’t know, over Maryville’s spring break on March 9th, the senior education majors have to stay here. They are invited to a career fair where future employers sit down and interview them. Scary right? Well, it went really well. I am friends with some of the people who attended and they said it went really well for them as well. We had 27 students in attendance and 16 districts came to meet with Maryville students. That’s impressive!! I can’t wait until I get to do this next year!

Where did time go??

Hello everyone!

I cannot believe that we are down to our last two weeks of school! It is crazy how fast time flies when you are having fun. This week should be fun with all the activities going on. The talent show last night was awesome as well as the scavenger hunt that followed. It is nice that we have all these activities on campus before the stressful week of finals. I’m sure everyone is wondering how they are either going to make their dining dollars last or how they are going to spend those in such a short amount of time! All the craziness at the end of the year is new to me, but I am excited to say I have almost finished my FIRST YEAR!!

On another note, everyone should definitely go to the Hoodie Allen concert tonight. I mean it’s free so why not?

Have a great week before finals!

We’ve Got Plans, yes we do, We’ve Got Plans, HOW ‘BOUT YOU???

Hey Friends!

So a few weeks ago, we had the grad fair on campus! How exciting??!! For those of you who don’t know, the Grad Fair is for students who are graduating in May. Crazy right?! Well our office had a table at the grad fair. While people were going around and getting all their graduation needs, they would stop by our table and fill out a little piece of paper that told us what their plans were after graduation. At the end of every school year, our office goes through and has to fill out this spread sheet on all the graduates that says what they are doing. It’s very time consuming so knowing that some of them are already done, is wonderful! Until next time!

I Miss the Beach

Hey everyone!

I am back from Daytona Beach and am very tired. That was a long drive, but it was so worth it because I had an amazing time with my friends. We went to the beach everyday (which is good because the beach is my favorite place to be), we went shopping, ate some amazing food, and took a lot of pictures. I am happy to be home, but I’m not ready for all the school work and stress to begin again. I hope everyone had an amazing spring break though!

Over spring break I got a couple of pieces of good news! Number 1: I made the 2015 Saints Nation Team! I am very excited to be a part of this team and gain some leadership experience. Number 2: I did well on my Gross Anatomy exam and still have a good grade in the class!! I was jumping around in the shop in Florida when I found out and the guy working there asked me if I had just won the lottery. It sure did feel like it! It was a great ending to a great week!

Well time to get back into the swing of things! Only about a month and a half of school left! I can do this!

Time to rest up for classes next week!

Cali Here I Come!

Hey everyone!

Thank goodness this week is over. I don’t know about everyone else, but midterms stressed me out! I had three tests and a paper due this week. However, the only motivation I had was the beach. This week on top of tests, I had a Saint’s Nation interview. Even though, the interview was so much fun. Who knew an interview could be so fun!

It is crazy to think when we come back we only have 7 weeks. This year has flown by! I hope everyone has a fun and safe spring break, I know I will!

Let’s Go!!

Hey everyone,

Since it has been a while since I have posted I will try to fill you in on how much has gone on. This semester is chaotic for me. I have so many classes and they are all very difficult and time consuming, I often feel like I don’t have time to breathe. I have gotten one midterm out of the way so I’m feeling a tiny bit less stressed, but I still have a few more tests in the next couple of weeks. I cannot wait until next week is over! We will be about half way done with the semester. Time is flying!

Another reason that I cannot wait until the end of next week is because I am going to Daytona Beach, FL with some of my best friends for Spring Break! I am so excited to have a week to relax on the beach and not have to worry about homework and tests and papers! Oh, and no more snow! I am so tired of cold weather. I am ready to wear shorts and T-shirts again.

I am very excited because I am applying to be a member of the Saints Nation Team! We will be helping the incoming freshman class with their START dates, move-in day, orientation weekend, and much more. I am so excited to be gaining more leadership experience. \

I can’t wait to go home this weekend and see my family and my dog! I have missed them so much and am excited to catch up with them. I am going to see one of my friends perform in a musical for her school, am going to my friend’s aunt’s baby shower, and going to a birthday party for the little girl that I babysit for. She is going to be 2 years old and I cannot believe it. I have missed her and her family so much and can’t wait to see them. I am going to have a busy weekend, but I am still going to need to find time to work on homework and study for my exams.

Well wish me luck on my exams next week!

Freezing Tuesday!

Hello everyone!
I hope everyone enjoyed the snow day yesterday as much as I did. It was nice to catch up on homework and of course NETFLIX! However, walking to class this morning at 8 am was freezing. I feel like I need a parka just to stay warm. On the bright side, spring break is in two short weeks! Cannot wait, I will be spending my break in California with my friends from here at Maryville! So excited!

Hope everyone is staying warm!

Pizza With Professors

Hey Friends!

I hope you have been having a fabulous Friday! I just wanted to tell you about the awesome event that I helped with on Wednesday night at 6 in Buder! As most of you may know, I used to be an RA on campus. I put on an event called Pizza with Professors where students and professors were networking and getting to know one another outside of the classroom setting. The RA’s this year have continued this tradition and asked that our office join and talk about how to network and the importance of networking. We had such an amazing turn out! We ate pizza, talked about anything and everything, and got to meet new people. This is something I definitely would love to do again and I advise that you go too!

Serve Project!

Hello everyone!

Today I got an opportunity to go to Giant Steps to perform my SERVE project.  I absolutely love it there! Giant Steps is a school for children with autism.  Luckily enough, Maryville is allowed to go there and help out in any way we can.  Not only do we get to do some community service, but we also get to spend some time with the students.  My major is OT, so I get to shadow one of their OT’s as well. It is nice to get to go with some fellow classmates too.  Even though this was just our first day, I am so excited to go back next Friday and help out! I look forward to this experience and I encourage all of you, if you can, to join a serve project!

Have a great weekend!

I Need a Nap

Hello everyone,

I have been back in school for a few weeks now and the second I stepped into my first class I have barely had any time to breathe! I have been super busy with homework, quizzes, papers and projects. I just finished two major assignments, so hopefully it will calm down pretty soon, but looking at my calendar for all my classes, it doesn’t seem like that is going to happen. I am so tired all the time from early classes and working on homework late that my favorite phrase has become “I need a nap.” All of my roommates and friends hear that on a daily bases. Oh well, only about three and a half more years until graduation!

The other night, my roommates and I decided to have a dance party in the middle of our dining room. We are always doing crazy stuff like that or laughing together/at each other until 1:00 in the morning. We all have so much fun together but we still get all of our homework done and on time. It also helps that two of my roommates are in the same program so we all try to help each other out.

Gross Anatomy is still keeping me very busy, but it is a good thing that it is interesting and I like learning about it.

Hope you all have a good rest of the week and weekend!
