Date My Friend: An Adventurous Photographer In Phoenix

If there's anything great about life, it's that it offers us some great adventures that we just have to take. There are so many moments to seize that make life memorable, whether it's a spontaneous hike in the mountains or a late-night talk with a good friend.

No one understands this better than one of my best friends, Cierra Norton. She's one of the most adventurous people I've ever met, so if you're looking for adventure and the experience of trying new things, she's the perfect date for you!

  • Age: 20
  • Height: 5'3"
  • School: Grand Canyon University
  • Job: Future Photojournalist (hopefully for a nonprofit organization)
  • Location: Phoenix, AZ
  • Hometown: San Diego, CA

Cierra's Preferences:

  • Dogs or cats? Both! Especially two special puppies named Reece and Porkchop.
  • Night owl or morning person? Night Owl
  • "The Bachelor" or "Keeping Up With The Kardashians"? To quote Cierra herself, "lol, neither" (she loves watching National Geographic documentaries)

Never has Cierra ever lit a candle.

If there was one funny story from Cierra's life that perfectly describes them as a person it's this:

If there was ever a story to describe Cierra, it would be that one day, when she was on a hike, she got so hopelessly lost on the trail that she took a delay that lasted several hours. She ended up encountering a rattlesnake and a deer carcass, but in true Cierra fashion, she took it all in stride. She even managed to capture some great photos on the way.

Four qualities Cierra is looking for in a partner and one they're absolutely not:

  1. Loves Jesus ✓
  2. Always down for a spontaneous adventure ✓
  3. Dark hair ✓
  4. Loves McDonald's (especially their sweet tea) ✓
  5. Cierra is NOT looking for someone who is disrespectful of nature ✗

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
