Walk a Mile in Her Shoes!!

This past Saturday was Walk a Mile in Her Shoes!

The goal for walk a mile was to raise over $20,000 and we raised that plus some! And more than 300 people were registered to walk. It was an amazing experience and I am so glad that I walked! It was so funny to see all the guys wearing heels! Some of the guys even ran with the heels on! All in all the event was a huge success even though it was cold and rainy out! I am so glad that everyone came out! Thanks to everyone that donated! I really appreciate it!

Tornado Watch!

We have a tornado watch here in Springfield today! I love storms and tornados so I am a little bit excited! I don’t like that tornados can kill people or destroy homes, but I do think that they are amazing things that nature can create!

Also tomorrow is sports day for Springfest, but the weather is suppose to be crappy! I hope that the sun shines because I really want it to be nice out since we are going to be outside, but either way it is going to be fun!

Also tomorrow is Walk a Mile! I met my goal of $100 raised online and I also will get to donate my part of the bake sale money! I didn’t think I was going to meet my $100 goal online but thanks to an anonymous donor I did! They donated $50 to me! Thank you anonymous donor, you rock!!! I really appreciate everyone who donated and it is going to a great cause! Everyone should come out and watch me try to walk a mile in my high heels! Ha! It is going to be a good time!

I will definitely try to post pictures from walk a mile tomorrow so that everyone can see how awesome it is! There is going to be a lot of people and TEAM UIS has raised over $1,000 online!!! Thats not including the $600 from the bake sale that we are donating! GO TEAM UIS!!!!

Springfest

This week is Springfest. It is a huge celebration/competition. Last night we did a scavenger hunt and it was so much fun! We went knocking door to door trying to get items from people. It was unreal how many students participate in Springfest! There were a lot of students! Tonight it is trivia night, and I am pretty excited! We all got matching tshirts, and the team works together pretty well! Tomorrow, we have to build a box on the quad and then stay in it all night! I am not able to do that since I work at Lanphier in the morning Thursday, but I am sure if it is nice my team will have a lot of fun!

I had a presentation today for my Psychology Senior Seminar Class. It went really well. I got a 50/50!! I am so close to graduating I can feel it! I am definitely excited about it! I am ready to start a new phase in my life and I am pretty sure UIS has prepared me well for the new life!

Well I will leave you with my countdown!
32 days until I graduate!
39 days until my cruise!

Today I did a presentation for my sport psychology class. It went really well. It was over how much weight I have lost and working to be able to complete the police test! Everyone was really supportive and great! It was a lot of sensitive information so I am glad that everyone understood that! I hope I get a good grade on my presentation! I think I will because I feel like I did an awesome job!

Springfest starts tonight! Springfest is a campus wide competition that students do, where we competei in different activities. I am definitely excited about it! Tonight is the scavenger hunt! Wish my team luck!

FOUNTAIN!!

You know it is officially spring when UIS turns their fountain on! Today it is finally on! I was so excited when I saw it walking up to advising today! It is a beautiful fountain that is located in the center of campus surrounded by places to sit and hang out! It is such a gorgeous day out today, I am so glad that they have it on! I am thinking about taking my lunch out there and sitting by it while I eat! I can’t wait! This means that summer is going to be here soon, which means swimming!!! I love going swimming and I can’t wait until summer!!!

36 days until I graduate!!!
43 days until my cruise!!!
Then I start my new job in June!!! So Excited!!! I can’t wait!!

I love getting my nails done!! Today I went and got a pedicure and got my nails done! It was amazing!!! There are a lot of places around campus that do an awesome job of doing nails! I also got my haircut today!! I love the guy that cuts my hair but there are a lot of salons around campus where you can get your hair done at! Luckily Springfield isn’t that big and it doesn’t take to long to go anywhere in Springfield!! If you need any recommendations, ask me or any uis student! We will be glad to help you!!

Working ahead!

It feels so good to have time to get homework done way ahead of time. This is probably my first semester in college ever working ahead but it actually feels good to not have all kinds of pressure on you to get work done the last minute!! I figure since I am graduating this semester, the less pressure that I have on myself, the easier the semester will fly by!!

Tonight I am going to Yogalates and Kickboxing and I am definitely excited about it! I love yogalates and I havent tried kickboxing yet but it sounds like a blast. It is awesome that the TRAC here at UIS has the free classes for all of us students to take! I dont know what I am going to do for fitness when I graduate! I better start thinking about that now!!

I love that UIS has a pool place right around the corner!! My friends and I always try to get together there and play some pool! Lots of good times!! It’s an awesome place called Mowies and you are able to go there if you are 18 and older! Always a good time so definitely check it out!!

Softball Season!!

I am so glad that it is finally softball season! I went and watched some of my friends play in a softball tournament this weekend, and I also got to play catch with one of my friends! It was awesome throwing the ball again! I also got to ride my bike this weekend because it was gorgeous out! Yesterday the high was 84! And the best part, I was off all day yesterday! So I got to enjoy the marvelous weather!!
My softball season starts this Sunday! I cannot wait for it to be here! I am incredibly excited to start playing again! Especially for the exercise because I am getting tired of going to the gym everyday!
By the way— I graduate in 40 days! I am so excited! Especially now that I have a job lined up for after I graduate! Before I got the college advising job, I was super nervous and scared about graduating! I did not know what I was going to do. But now I have a plan and I am so ready! It is smooth sailing from here on out!
Speaking of sailing, my cruise is 47 days away. I feel like my whole life is a countdown right now but I know it is a countdown to bigger and better things! Graduation and cruise time here I come! There is no stopping me now! I am definitely the happiest I have been in a long time! I know that I have accomplished a lot and that makes all the difference.

Job Offer!!!

I GOT THE JOB FOR THE ILLINOIS COLLEGE ADVISING CORPS!!! They called me today and offered me the job! I am so excited! I cannot believe that I have my first big girl job!!! It is soo surreal! I got the job that I really wanted for right after graduation! It is so exciting! I want to be a cop also but ever since I heard about this position, my police dreams were put on hold! I love the fact that I will be working with high school students and helping them achieve their dreams of going to college! The job is only a two year position, so after I finish with this job, I can go back to the policing dreams!

I am so thankful that I got this job! I am incredibly excited and will keep you all updated on anything else I find out about this job! I can’t wait to graduate and start my new life! 6 weeks and 1 day until I graduate!!!!
