What's In Our Backpack Vlog

April 26, 2019

In this vlog, Abby & I share what some of our backpack essentials are for college.  Every day looks a little different in college, so it’s always great to be prepared! Check out this vlog to see what you should pack on your pack!

My Nighttime Routine

April 26, 2019

Let’s be real for a moment - college can be pretty inconsistent.  Between juggling classes, friends, work, and sleep…every day looks a little different!  That’s why having a consistent morning and nighttime routine is extremely necessary. 

So without further ado, here is my favorite nighttime routine!

1. Chatting with my Roommate:

This is the part of the routine that I never forget!  This may not be the case for everyone, but my roommate has become one of my best friends this year.  I love coming back to our room and talking about how our days were, laughing together, being there for each other on the hard days, and celebrating the good days!  Our little “home” here at Liberty has been the biggest blessing of my junior year!

2. Pick Outfit/Pack Backpack:

I’ve mentioned this in a previous blog, but this truly is a game-changer! I always choose my outfit for the next day and pack my bag at night so my morning a little bit easier.  If I wait to pack my bag or choose my outfit until morning, there’s a bigger chance I’ll forget something or run late!

3. Schedule My Day:

I use the calendar app on my phone to keep my life as organized as I can!  I love to check my schedule the night before so I know where I have to be and when for the next day.  If you haven’t already noticed, I love being organized.  I’m all about it.

4. Tea and a Book:

I absolutely love drinking a warm cup of honey lemon tea and reading a few chapters of a book before bed!  I’ve noticed that if I’m on my phone or laptop before bed, I don’t sleep as well.  Because my days are often busy, it is always so nice to have the chance to relax a little bit!  For those of you that don’t love to read, I also love to journal!

I hope you can use these nighttime tips to get a little more sleep and stay a little more organized!

How to Network in College

April 3, 2019

It seems like ‘networking’ has been a popular buzzword for quite some time.  You hear it often, you’re told to do it, and you think you want too…but what does it even mean? How do you network? Can you network in college?

I’m definitely not a networking expert, but I have learned a few things about it in my communications classes and from personal experience!

The dictionary definition of networking is: “the action or process of interacting with others to exchange information and develop professional or social contact.”

I’ve found that networking comes naturally when the intention is getting to know someone else.  Some people may think that networking only happens in a professional setting, but it actually happens anytime you meet someone!  I’ve made connections with people at church, in the dining hall, on my dorm, walking to class, and more!  Networking isn’t always about being professional, it’s about being yourself, sharing your story and passions, and giving other’s the space to do that as well!  It’s about helping each other out, building relationships, and bringing what you have to offer to the table – whether it’s getting a new job or volunteering at a local ministry!

Networking is all about getting involved and meeting people, even in your everyday life!  Instead of going to class and leaving without interacting with others, meet the other students around you.  Talk to your professor, ask questions, and build a relationship with them!  Be open to interacting and building relationships with those that are different than you!  It’s easier to befriend those that like the same things as you, look like you, and talk like you…but your networking will be limited if you are picky with those you choose to interact with. 

Another great way to network is to join a club here at Liberty and get involved in what you are passionate about!  I was a part of a club for two years and even served as the Vice President.  That experience brought me many friendships, connections, and hands-on experience that has shaped who I am today!

The Career Center is another incredible resource that Liberty offers students.  The Career Center is the best place to get help with resume building, setting up a LinkedIn, job hunting, and more!  They also host job fairs throughout the school year, so make sure to take advantage of those events.  Job fairs are a great way to network and meet some faces that represent organizations and possible future employers!  So many students miss out on the resources that the Career Center offers by not utilizing it.  It’s there for you, so make an appointment!

Whether you get involved in a club, serve at your church, or do a summer internship, don’t forget to be who God created you to be.  You’ll make so many friends and connections by being yourself and allowing other people to be themselves!

Happy Networking!

5 Favorite Budget-Friendly Weekend Plans!

March 19, 2019

If you know me, you know I absolutely love game nights.  I love playing Telestrations, Werewolves, Mario Kart, and any other game that will make my friends and I laugh until our stomachs hurt!  Not only are game nights hilarious and so much fun, but they’re also free!  I love finding ways that my friends and I can have fun and keep it budget-friendly. 

Here’s a list of my 5 favorite college budget-friendly weekend activities that won’t break the bank!

1. Game Nights!

            Like I mentioned above, game nights are my favorites! Invite some friends, and head to and your common area, a friend’s house off campus, or even in the Montview Student Union, bring some games, and have some fun! 

2. Fan the Flames!

            I love supporting our sports teams and cheering them on! My favorite is football season, but I also enjoy watching our basketball and baseball team as well!  Grab some dinner on campus and head to a game with friends!  You’ll have so much fun, make some great memories, and it’ll be free with your Flames Pass.

3. Coffee Shops + Concerts!

            There are lots of coffee shops here in Lynchburg to get homework done, hang with friends, and grab a coffee!  I do that often, but I also really enjoy going to the free concerts that coffee shops host at night.  It’s a great experience hearing different artists perform and supporting their passion!  Grab a tea or hot cocoa with your friends and enjoy the music!

4. Thrift Shopping!

            This is a pretty common activity to do as a Liberty student.  Liberty students are known for hitting up Goodwill or other thrift stores and finding cute outfits for a great price!  My friends and I have spent hours in Goodwill and leave with a few cute items for only a few dollars!

5.  Watercolor/Crafting!  

            My girlfriends and I have been doing this since freshman year.  We’ll put some music on, grab some snacks, and do some crafting!  I like to make cards out of watercolor paper and paint something for a friend.  We’ve also made some pretty paintings to hang in our room or give as a gift.  This is a great way to get creative and relax a bit!

I hope you can enjoy these budget-friendly weekend activities as much as I have during my three years here at Liberty!
