CDN History

I will be home in 407 hours. I've had so many great experiences this semester, but as someone who hasn't been home since I moved in over three months ago, there's a multitude of things I miss about home. From my family, to my bed, to my dog, to my favorite hometown breakfast joint, I miss a lot of things. Here's what 30 other college kids, from multiple campuses, have to say in response to the question "What are you looking forward to about winter break?"

1. "No more stressing about studying for a whole month."


3. "My doggos! And spending time with my family. And eating food with flavor!"

3. "My mom's wedding!"

4. "Making money and seeing my man."

5. "My dog."

6. "Packing for studying abroad in Northern Ireland in the spring!"

7. "No homework."

8. "The CMPD Christmas Project and giving my loved ones their gifts."

9. "To go home and see people!"

10. "Going to Europe!"

11. "Seeing Slinky, my cat."

12. "Sleeping and seeing my friends."

13. "My hometown. Huntsville is magical."

14. "Spending time with family, seeing my dogs, and the food."

15. "Going to my grandma's house and not being in school."

16. "Much sleep."

17. "Mostly seeing my dogs and to see my friends, who I haven't seen in a minute. My family, I guess. Maybe there'll be a winter wonderland waiting for me. That'd be nice."

18. "Not feeling dead inside."

19. "More free time to read books, make candles, and make candy."

20. "Not being loaded with stress."

21. "To sleeping and not being sick."

22. "Eating Christmas cookies!"

23. "More me time! I barely have time to myself during the school year."

24. "Picking avocados fresh off the grove everyday."

25. "Not being here."

26. "Seeing my friends."

27. "Slowing down and re-centering myself so I can hopefully have a better semester after break."

28. "Eating sausage balls and not having a disgusting bathroom and shower."

29. ""Sleep. And going to Disney World and Universal."

30. "Eating food that isn't awful.

31. "Getting funky with old friends."

How I Went From Pro-Life To Pro-Choice

"No one can make you do this."


I was raised in a strict, Irish-Catholic family.

Trip to The City of Dreams

In a city that never sleeps, with constant bustling and hustling in the streets, my friend and I venture out to see what the "Big Apple" is all about.

Trip to The City of Dreams

There are so many ways for one to describe the beautiful city of New York. It is breathtaking, exciting and alive all in one.

God, What's Next?

We spend most of our lives waiting for something. Maybe you're waiting for a job opportunity to open up, or for a professor to email you back because you procrastinated on your assignment, or maybe you're waiting for the next chapter in your life to start. Whatever the case maybe be for you I want to let you know that your season of waiting is not in vain! It may seem like it but your season of waiting is a crucial part in your walk with Christ. You may not have a walk with Christ and I encourage you to be open to starting a relationship with him but even your time of waiting isn't in vain. Waiting is a hard thing to do but it is so worth it in the end. The Bible even tells us this in Ecclesiastes.
