Gym Time/Spring Break

It's almost Spring Break which means that I have started hitting the gym along with every other person who is wanting to get in shape for Spring Break or just in general. Tech Fit is a nice gym but during the hours they are open its so crowded that I don't want to go in there so I've joined Maxx Nutirtion not to far from the campus so that I can go at my own convenience. Maxx is open until 1 am and my roommate, Charissa and I go together because its always nice to have someone to talk to while your working out.
I've noticed since Charissa and I have started going to the gym together that we have grown much closer. We discuss everything from politics to our love lives. Its a time for us to just let loose and be ourselves without anyone else's criticism.
Spring Break is coming up and with that comes my birthday as well. March 14 YAY!! But my spring break this year will not consist of beaches, sand, and an ocean but the inside of a movie store. MovieTown is where I will spend my spring break because I am a broke college student that needs money to pay her bills. So many things to do just not enough money to do them with. I have a list of things I want a Northface jacket, Vera Bradley tote bag, a new tattoo, new shoes, a Delta Zeta bag, and a Delta Zeta jacket. The list goes on and on. Clothes are definately something that I want and need more of these days so these are my reason and my motivation for working all of spring break while my friends are all out on cruises or beaches.

Sisters for Life

When I joined Delta Zeta I didn't realize how much there was under the surface of just being in a sorority. The day I joined Delta Zeta I had no idea that I was joining a life long sisterhood. I have two sisters at home and they are always there in the blink of an eye but when I came to college there was no way for them to truly be there for me. By joining Delta Zeta I gained 60 new sisters who are there through thick and thin. This first year of college has been hard for me here at Arkansas Tech but I get by with a little help from my sisters. Being a true sister means never giving up on someone, being their shoulder to cry on when boys are dumb, just a phone call away no matter what time of night it may be. There is a bond between my sisters and myself that no one could come between. They make me happy even on the cloudiest of days. I find a peace of mind in each of them that I wish I could find in myself sometimes. I know that I could move thousands of miles away and still talk to them like it was yesterday. My big sis, Erica Hill, has been a huge influence on me this past semester. Throughout high school I had friends that would come and go and I had those few close ones that I still talk to every once in a while and when I came to college I told myself I wouldn't just have random friends I would have best friends with bonds that lasted forever and the first person to step into my life that I know will never leave my side is Erica. She has counseled me through former roommate problems to boy issues she sticks close by me and I know that no matter the distance we will always be closer than best friends could imagine.

all you need is love

The Beatles inspire me to write. Not only do I want to write I want to sing and dance and just have fun and be wild, young, and free. I love my life right now espeically since the Beatles are what is playing throughout my room. They are so amazing. Their words inspire me and motivate me more than anything. When the world goes cold and there is no one there to turn to I turn to my music. Music is my escape from the real world.
This week has been extremely hectic and sometimes I just need to stop and breathe and listen to the Beatles and think about John Lennon because he always makes me happy or I could just look at my amazing tattoo on my foot with his lyrics:)

Rain, Rain Go Away!

The rain is getting a little old Mother Nature. Once again it is raining here in the glorious Russellville, Arkansas. I am so sick of the rain! I want some sunshine in my life again. Spring break is just around the corner and everyone is starting to go on their so called diets but not me, this spring break I get to stay home and get my wisdom taken out. That is exactly what I dreamed of doing for my first spring break in college...NOT!! Honestly I am ready for summer to be here but who isn't ready for the freedom and the warm weather. I don't have a job here in Russellville but I do have one back home so I really need to go home and work for a couple of weekends. I love my job back home, MovieTown. It's a lovely little hole in the wall movie store that pratically everyone in Van Buren uses all the time. We have an all girl staff at the store which is great at times then not so great at other times. I love going to the store in the summer time and just being able to meet new people or converse with an old customer but in the winter no one wants to stay and chat for long or come out of their houses half the time so I get bored. So work is the first thing I am looking forward to this summer then there is the lake. I love going to the lake. My family takes so many trips throughout the summer but just simply taking our boat out on the beautiful Arkansas lakes is probably my favorite thing. Its the simple things in life that make us happy such as laying out in the hot sun in the middle of July in a boat surrounded by your family and your very best friends.
