Ah, glorious spring break. This sweet week came just in time. Prior to spring break, I was extremely overwhelmed with the amount of work I had to get done. But, spring break came right on time! I know it sounds cliché, but it really was just what I needed.
For the first 3 days of break (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) I went to my friend Caitlin’s house in Roanoke. We spent time, just relaxing. We cooked, we explored Roanoke and we did girly things, like painting our nails and watching chick flicks. In Roanoke, I wanted to go to the mall because they have an H&M, which I didn't’ buy anything from. Later on Saturday we walked around downtown for a little bit, got coffee from Mill Mountain Coffee, and also went to see the Roanoke Star. After that we stopped by the cutest little bakery call Bubble cakes. They make the cutest and most creative cupcakes. I got a carrot cake cupcake (to share with Caleb, because carrot cake is his favorite) and a little red velvet cupcake because that is my favorite. I will be honest, I liked the carrot cake cupcake better, but nonetheless they were both delicious! That night we were so tired that we just got in our sweats, painted our nails and watched a movie. If you are wondering what movie we watched, it was Father of the Bride, a movie that you should watch if you haven’t already.
The next day we got up early and went to church! We came back, took a nap, watched silly YouTube videos and then went to the store to get stuff to make dinner for my boyfriend Caleb and Caitlin’s friend Ayla.
Over break I also got to spend some time with Caleb and his family. We hiked Buffalo Mountian, cooked, watched multiple episodes of his favorite show House, as well as, Big Hero 6. We went running together; this is where I found out how fast Caleb can run and how not fast I can’t run! So that was a sign to me that I should run more! I am really glad that we could spend time together and I really do enjoy being with his family.
He scared me to death, becuase he actually climbed up all of that!
I hope everyone else had a fabulous spring break!
The Liberty University Theatre Department put on the Musical “South Pacific”, a story about a military nurse who falls in love with a plantation owner with a sketchy past. I had the pleasure of being accompanied by my lovely boyfriend, Caleb Taylor, who looked rather dashing that evening.
We started out evening by hopping onto the closest 71 bus and heading towards North. Once we arrived at north, we had a lovely dinner provided by a fine establishment called SubCo. I ate a six-inch turkey sub, with lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, olives, cucumbers with oil and vinegar. Caleb ordered a 12-inch barbeque chicken sub. We both got bananas with our food and enjoyed good conversation while eating our meal. Once we were finished we headed over to the Tower Theatre to be seated for the musical. I had a friend who was in the musical, so I was super excited to see her perform!
Caleb and I sat stage right kind of in the back, but I didn’t mind because I could still see everything! It was just fun to watch students at LU perform in a non-worship setting! All of the singers were amazing; it felt like a Broadway performance. I had never seen South Pacific before, nor did I know what it was about. So as far as the story goes, it was pretty good. It wasn’t my favorite, but it wasn’t horrible! I think I like a little easier going and funny types of musicals. But I was very impressed with the performance by the Theatre Department.
I have a few tips for those of you who are interested in going to Liberty’s Musicals/Plays etc…
- Make sure you buy your tickets early! They go fast because Liberty is just that awesome and because people come from out of town to see their kids perform!
- Dress nice! You don’t have to wear a prom dress, but DO NOT wear sweatpants. This is a professional event where people are debuting everything that they have been working for the past 3 months.
- Go with your friends! Who goes to plays alone anyways?;)
- Make sure to turn your phone off during the play. It is just a matter of respect for the performers and for the people around you. Also, you payed to watch it, not to look at your phone.
- GO TO THEM!

So here is my second try at vlogs. I live in the new dorms called the Residential Commons and not only do we have Dunkin Donuts in my dorm, we also have Baskin Robins! This is good and bad. Good becuase Ice cream is good, but bad becuase Ice cream isn't the healthiest option. I am an optimist so I mainly focus on the good. In the video my friends and I were going to get Dunkin Donuts, but they decided they wanted Ice cream, so I conformed and get Ice cream as well. I think it was the right decision and I am glad that I did it :)
So if you are planning on coming to Liberty or you already go to Liberty you should definitely check out Baskin Robins. It makes your friday nights 10x's better.
Also, don't forget to have your own dance party while you're there!
As of recently I have been wondering who is looking at my blog! I am able to see what percentages of people are looking at my blog on/off campus and I am curious as to who lives on campus and is looking at my blog! So here is what I want you to do, if you see me, say HEY! Don’t be scared, I really like people and it is actually super cool when I get to meet people who read my blog. I mean that is if you want to meet me… if not that’s cool… we can still be friends.
But seriously, I am curious as to who is reading my blog. Like do I need to give you my class schedule or where I live on campus…
And who knows… maybe you could be on my next post!
In the meantime, lately things have just been busy! I went to the doctor twice this week, first for my eyes and second for my stomach! I haven’t had my eyes checked in a long time, probably since 2nd grade and recently Ive had a little trouble seeing far away. But they gave me a prescription and I will eventually get some glasses.
Below are some of pictures from the past couple of weeks!
This is my boyfriend Caleb and we went to get tea the other weekend at my favorite tea room in downtown Lynchburg!
Matt wanted to wear my scarf, do you think he can pull it off?
Dunkin Donuts is in my dorm... this might be a problem
Did I mention that Baskin Robins is right next to the Dunkin Donuts? ;)
I got to rock these super cool sunglasses...
Might be a weird photo, but here is my dialated eye! Cool right!?
So I am starting to make more Vlogs (video blogs) of things around Liberty. Hopefully, the videos will show fun things on campus and help you get a feel for what Liberty is like in real life! I am super excited to be getting to do this and hopefully it pumps you all up as well! My goal is to post a video a week, so hopefully I can work hard enough to do that! So make sure that you stay updated so you don't miss a thing!
Also leave comments of what you would like to see! Don't forget to change the settings to 1080p! :)
