5 Fandom Friday: Black Friday Wishes


I am not one to do Black Friday, it almost disgusts me how much people can get into it and become vicious animals trying to get a tv that is on sale. Especially the day after we sit around and talk about what we are thankful for that we already have.

I had to go to Walmart last night because my mom needed some medicine and we had run out of milk. It was pretty terrifying. They had rearranged everything and I had no idea where anything was. I was almost run over by shopping carts loaded with TVs and other electronics. Twice. So I am not a fan of Black Friday. But if I were to do the crazy shopping day, here would be the 5 general things I would go for.

5 Reasons to Stop Asking College Students About Their Relationship Status



Even though I attend a private Christian university, my goal isn't to get married (Shocking, right?) I actually want to get a degree in something that I'm passionate about. Imagine that!? I would much rather learn about myself and who I am as an individual than begin dating others to try and find my "soulmate". How am I going to find someone perfect for me if I do not even know who "me" is?

Lessons from the Bird Woman


I recently was the stage manager for Abilene Christian University's 2015 Homecoming Musical Mary Poppins. It was the most magical experience ever. And throughout the production process, I learned so much about the stage management profession and about myself.

Today, I am going to talk about the most important lesson I learned from Mary Poppins, and it didn't come from the magical nanny herself, although she had many to teach. It came from a simple woman with one song in heart and a couple of lines. The Bird Woman. Now if you know of Disney's 1964 film version, it is pretty close to the musical adaptation when discussing the Bird Woman. There are some major differences between the movie, musical and books, like always, but we will talk about those later.
