Here Comes...

Spring Break!

It's that time of the year. The time where midterms are here and spring break is around the corner. The time where school becomes hard to handle and you just cannot wait for spring break. Here are 5 things to look forward to for spring break:

1. Good food

There s nothing better than the transition from college dining hall or dorm food, to home-cooked meals or restaurant foods. Spring break is the most amazing time to indulge in this food.

2. Potential sunshine

If your school is located in the snowy cities and your home is placed somewhere in the sun, you are lucky. Or, if you're going away for your spring break somewhere to the sun, you are also lucky. Tan advantage of this sunshine and enjoy the warmth while it's available.

3. Vacation

It is vacation time! Relax. Take a deep breath. Clear your mind and enjoy your time off from the chaos that college brings.

4. Relaxation

With college comes very little relaxation. Hence, a break is the perfect time to utilize relaxation. Kick your feet up and do what makes you happy. Take this time to do stuff you don't have time to do during school. Relax!

5. No homework

YES, NO HOMEWORK! For the most part to say the least. Enjoy the minimal work you have over break, it doesn't happen very often that you will have nothing to do. Especially as years go on and you get older.

If You Give A Girl A Little Brother

You've given her the world.

I remember back to my childhood, standing at the top of the steps yelling down to my parents "Why did you decide to have another child?" I remember riding in the backseat yelling "Mom, was I not good enough for you?" as my brother threw snow at me .

I remember crying when my mom made us share our first cell phone. I remember playing in a pool at a waterpark, and my dad couldn't play with me because my brother couldn't swim and needed my dad to be with him. I played by myself, thinking "They must have not wanted a girl when they only pay attention to him."

But now, at almost 22, I realized that the best gift God has ever given me was my little brother.

Give a girl a little brother, and you give her a pain in her ass.

Oh, he'll be annoying. He'll get in the shower just because you said you were going to. He'll start talking every time you do. He'll pull stupid pranks, he'll make you listen to bogus music, he'll make you watch stupid tv shows, he'll smell up the bathroom (and probably smell himself.) and boy, I promise there will be day's you will resent him. But he's just training for living with your husband one day.

Give a girl a little brother, and you give her a role.

As a big sister, I had somebody copying all my moves. If I did something, so did he. If I didn't eat something, neither did he. If I didn't like somebody neither did he. He was like a little shadow that did everything I did, so I was always motivated to make good choices and make him proud of me.

Give a girl a little brother, and you give her a rough side.

I wouldn't have done half the things I did if it wasn't for him. Play basketball in the drive way, spend hours on our bikes, spend the summer days in the pool, or down at the park. I wouldn't have learned that it's okay to get in the dirt and have some fun. I wouldn't have played half the made up, imaginary games we played every day. I wouldn't have played with Hot Wheels, or Lincoln Logs, or Leggo's. I would have played with Barbies by myself all day long, and what's the fun in that?

Give a girl a little brother, and you give her the best friend she'll ever have.

In the end, when our parent's both pass away, I won't be alone, because I will have my little brother. When the world gets tough, and everyone turns away from me, he will always be there. No matter where he end's up in life, I know he will drop everything and come running when I'm in need.

For Christmas this year, I bought my brother his first tattoo. We got matching tattoo's on our sides. Our lives our different now, because we're grown up and live on opposite sides of the state. But no matter where we go in life, if we look up, we will be looking at the same sun and moon. We are made up of the same matter, 'made' by the same people, and love each other more than I think we'd like to admit.

Alex is my true other-half.

Give a girl a little brother, and you made her whole.

Waco, TX Is So Much More Than Just A College Town, So Here Are Some Things To Do There

It's more than just a college town.


Waco, Texas is home to the Baylor Bears, but it is so much more than an empty little college town like I once thought.

When I first got here, my immediate thought was "Thank goodness we are not far from both Dallas and Austin," because there is "nothing to do" in Waco, right? Wrong. If you ever stop by the little town of Waco, you need to check out these fun activities that will make you think differently of this little town.

First, the obvious, you should go check out Magnolia Market Silos! If you are a fan of the show "Fixer Upper," this is a must. Grab a bite to eat from the food trucks, take some cute pics and shop till you drop.

Next, you should grab some OMJ (Oh My Juice!) and hit the shops at Spice Village.

Now one of the most exciting things for me is the Cameron Park Zoo. Seriously, go. It's magical.

If you are here during the warmer months, take the fam to the BSR Cable Park and float through the lazy river. If you're a real one, you'll go down the giant slide.

If you want to know if you are gonna be single forever, go tortilla tossing off of the Waco suspension bridge. So, rumor has it that if you throw tortillas off of the bridge and make it onto one of the pillars, you will find your husband here at Baylor. If not, you're doomed.

Finally, you should take a nice hike through Cameron Park and become one with nature.

Hope this gives you some ideas on things to do next time you are ever in or driving through my beloved Waco.
