Why Move-In Day Is The Best Day At Saint Mary's College

What better day than the first day?

So you have done it. You have put in all the effort and hard work in high school to get to this point. You finally committed to Saint Mary's and now the day has come, move-in day! You are super excited but also nervous for what lies ahead.

You have now completed six trips up the elevator with your parents. You are exhausted but can't help but wonder what this new adventure will be like. You get most of the day to set up your room exactly the way you want it. Everything is in place, your fridge is working, and you have met your room mate. After getting your room keys, your id, and a million papers on what to do next, you are settled in your room and just want to take a nap, right?

Wrong! Your weekend is full of activities and different things to do! Most of the clubs will take this move in weekend to meet you. This means opportunities to meet them and new people! You honestly will make so many new friends and meet a lot of the faculty and staff. Take this time to really get to know your neighbors and be involved in the various activities offered to you.There are plenty of free merchandise, free food, and lots of laughs at the activities you will attend. Just about every night for the next few days there will be something going on. This will be the opportune times to make new friends and connect with people!

You will have many things to do your first day on campus but don't forget the necessities! The pizza in the cafeteria is a must, and after that you have to have a twist cone. You will get the chance to take a little tour around campus, go ahead and take it! You will learn new things and places from it and grow closer to some peer mentors.

This will also be your introduction to the next four years of your life. You will discuss your classes and your career path. This is your home away from home that is here for you. You get to spend this time at your dream school making friends and memories that will last a life time. Saint Mary's is full of many talented, brave, and remarkable women. Move-in day is the day that you add to that group of amazing ladies.

When You Make A Girl An Aunt, You Change Her World In All The Best Ways

When you make a girl an aunt, you make her the happiest girl in the world.


My brother and his wife recently blessed our family with the sweetest bundle of joy on planet earth. OK, I may be a little bias but I believe it to be completely true. I have never been baby crazy, but this sweet-cheeked angel is the only exception. I am at an age where I do not want children yet, but being able to love on my nephew like he is my own is so satisfying.

When you make a girl an aunt, you make her a very protective person.

From making sure the car seat is strapped in properly before every trip, to watching baby boy breathe while he sleeps, you'll never meet someone, besides mommy and daddy of course, who is more concerned with the safety of that little person than me.

When you make a girl an aunt, you give her a miniature best friend.

There is something about an aunt that is so fun. An aunt is a person you go to when you think you're in trouble or when you want something mom and dad said you couldn't have. An aunt is someone who takes you to get ice cream and play in the park to cool down after having a temper tantrum. I can't wait to be the one he runs to.

When you make a girl an aunt, she gets to skip on the difficulty of disciplining.

Being an aunt means you get to be fun. Not to say I wouldn't correct my nephew if he were behaving poorly, but for the most part, I get to giggle and play and leave the hard stuff for my brother.

When you make a girl an aunt, you give her the best listening ears.

As of right now I only listen to the sweet coos and hungry cries but I am fully prepared to listen to all the problems in his life in the future.

When you make a girl an aunt, you make her the best advice giver.

By the time my nephew needs advice, hopefully, I will have all of my life lessons perfected into relatable stories.

When you make a girl an aunt, you make her a number-one fan

Anything you do in life sweet boy, I will be cheering you on. I already know you are going to do great things.

When you make a girl an aunt, she learns what true love is.

The love I have for my nephew is so pure. Its the love that is just there. I don't have to choose to show love every day, I don't have to forgive, I don't have to worry if it is reciprocated, it is just there.

When you make a girl an aunt, you make her the happiest person in the world.

I cannot wait to watch my precious nephew grow into the amazing person that I know he is going to be.

Goodbye School, Hello Real World

I'm ready for ya!


It's starting to hit me.

I've been in school, year after year, since kindergarten. Maybe even pre-school!

Now, I'm about to graduate with my bachelors in communication and I couldn't be more proud of myself. I'll say it. I often sugarcoat it or suppress it but d*mn it. I'm going to applaud myself. It was hard work. It took a lot of motivation, determination, (caffeine), and willpower to get to where I am today. I worked my ass off.

That being said, I can't help but think... What is life without due dates? What is life like without scrambling to turn in an assignment that's due at 11:59 PM? What is life like with actual sleep? Sleep? I don't know her.

Like I keep telling my boyfriend and my parents, I don't have it all figured out. At least not right now. But I will, and I'm in no rush to land my dream job right now. If anything, I want to take a year to myself. I want to travel. I want to sleep in if I d*mn well please! I want to read as many books as I want. I want to write till my fingers fall off (OK, maybe not that).

You get the jist.

I'm free. I can do and be whatever I want. And you know what? That's terrifying.

I'm lost. I've followed this structure for so long. Now what?

I don't have all the answers yet. But for now, at least right at this very moment, I'm so thankful to have been able to receive such an amazing education. And to be able to say I'm graduating with my bachelors in communication at 21 is an accomplishment in itself.
