Last night on North Field some friends and I had some Good CLEAN Fun! We got a huge tarp, lots of warm water (cause it was chilly) and tons of soap and made a huge slip and slide! It was a blast and something we put together for free! Look for the pictures in the slide show above! As a college student money is pretty tight so anything that costs little to no money and is fun is always something I am looking to take part in!!!

ME! I end up moving in and out of college so many times in one year it is completely ridiculous! I am back once again for my job as a Summer Conference Assistant. Like I did last summer, I am living on campus, in North. I am looking forward to what this summer will bring. I am sure it will definitely be a roller coaster of events. I am only here for three days and its already been an up and down! I also started a Math class...I hate math, so we will also have to see how that… Continue

Well...Congratulations Class of 2009! It was a long and hot ceremony but you stuck through it (and so did I). Not going to lie...I was crying before the class even entered Shirk Stadium! It was definitely an emotional day. AND I AM NOW A JUNIOR IN COLLEGE! WOW, I can't believe I am halfway done....how exciting it has been...I am nervous/excited to see what the next two years will bring....But now summer is here! However, the funny thing is...I can't wait to get back to Albright!

So I open up the Albright Website today and what do i see??? My face! I am once again featured on the site when you open the home page. The entry refers to one of my older blogs about the library! I really do have a love-hate relationship with the lib (as we call it here)!
Well quick update while I have you here....
It's FINALS WEEK! AHHH! But right now the only thing I am stressing about is moving everything out of my room and cleaning it! It's a disaster and I am NOT… Continue

JUST KIDDING! But I feel like its been such a long time that I need to reintroduce myself.
Things have been CRAZY busy the past few weeks. The thing that took up most of my time was planning my sorority Formal that happened on Friday night. It went so well I couldn't be happier. We also had Oozeball (Volleyball in the Mud), I had a field hockey tournament at Shippensburg and we had SGA elections too! I won Recording Secretary. I can't wait to start a new term!
It's pretty rainy… Continue

Soooooooooo recently I have been IN LOVE with mtvU! The TV station is awesome! Through Albright it's on channel 28 and I listen to it pretty much everyday. The thing I like best about it is the fact that they play a little bit of everything. It ranges from Flo Rida to Friendly Fires to Death Cab for Cutie.
I really don't know what I would do without music. It can really change my mood in a hot second. The past few days I have been listening, nonstop, to the song Skeleton Boy by… Continue

I've got the bug.....the travel bug that is!!!
It's time for me to go somewhere new and exciting....I am not saying that Reading isn't exciting, but for me, a local, it isn't that new! I love, love, love to travel. For me, going to a place where the people and culture aren't anything that I am used to is SO refreshing! I am pretty lucky so far...I have been to various countries in Europe and I hope to go back soon! ( I love Germany the most!) This might seem silly but I also LOVE… Continue

HAPPY NEW YEAR! I can't believe it's 2009 already! It's a bit sad because I have a ton of friends who graduate this year and I really don't want them to! haha But with the new year comes January and with January comes the Albright Interim!
For the month of January I am taking a class called Educational Theatre. So everyday I will have this class from 1-4 for about 25-ish days. I am looking forward to getting back to school but I will kinda miss my bed at home!

The weather outside is frightful... and that's just how I like it! Especially at Albright! So when the wind blows and the temperature drops and the snow starts to fall, the first thing on my mind is let's go outside!! Some of my best times so far at "The Bright" have been sledding down the various hills after a nice coat of that fluffy white stuff covers the campus. Last week we were lucky enough to get about an inch and a half. So I grabbed my boots, my warm winter hat and my makeshift black… Continue

Large white snow flakes were falling as myself and other members of the SGA prepared for our Bon-Fire nite (unfortunately it didn't happen though...the wood was too wet!). But I had trouble focusing on the huge pieces of wood because I couldn't stop thinking about the sunny Florida weather that I would soon be basking in. As a member of SGA I was lucky enough to travel to Orlando for the NCSL Leadership Conference.
I certainly learned a lot at the conference. We talked about our… Continue

"Life moves pretty fast...If you don't stop and look around once in a while...you could miss it."
Have you ever wondered what you'll be doing or where you will be in fifty years? It's a strange question to think about but time flies by so quickly I think fifty years will get here sooner than I think!
But I brought up this question because of a tour I gave the other day to two elderly gentlemen...
When I entered the Admission's office for my daily Monday shift I was… Continue

Here we are into the fourth week of school and things couldn't be crazier! With school, SGA, ADPi and Field Hockey my schedule is pretty packed. So when I have the chance to just sit down at my computer and go on facebook or check my email, I find it's basically the only time I am relaxing!!! But something that always catches me off guard is when I take a seat at my desk, in my messy room, and type in albright.edu and all of a sudden, BAM, I see my face. I swear every time it scares me a… Continue

It's quiet in the Library...real quiet. It's a great place to go and get your study on, away from the noise and distractions of the dorms or campus center. But it is so quiet in there. Those cubicles are a great place to sit and bang out a paper or fill in the most recent Spanish workbook assignment (My cubicle is located 5th window in on the second floor...so leave that opened for me! I would never even think about climbing the stairs to the third floor-no talking=no way for me!). I love the… Continue

As a member of the Albright Field Hockey team the summer is an excellent time to get in shape and build one's skills. However, for me, finding the time to get to the gym has become extremely hard considering I've misplaced my running shoes.
I have looked all over campus, as I do my many summer activities, for those shoes. They didn't turn up at the Admissions office where I am a Student Ambassador. The shoes weren't sitting under my desk in the Summer Conference office where I am currently… Continue

"Soulja boy I tell 'em....Hey I got a new dance fo you all called the soulja boy....
(Yoooouuuu!) You gotta punch then crank back three times from left to right (Aaaaaaaahhhhhhhh yeeeeaaaah!)"
Everyone should be familiar with the opening lyrics to the popular hit "Crank That" by Soulja Boy and for me, more than anyone, this is the song that defined my freshman year and continues to help me in my dancing adventures. Whether it was our pre-game warm up for Field Hockey or when I… Continue

So I died today. At breakfast to be exact. I sat down to eat my delicious nut coated sticky bun when all of a sudden my friend and fellow co-worker runs up behind me and the last words I hear are "Bagel to the Chest!" Before I could make a move a bagel hits me right in the chest and i was done. Now clearly I am not literally dead however I am dead in the game of Assassin that my fellow co-workers of Summer Conference and I have been playing this past week.
Assassin is just one of the silly… Continue
