I'm a college student from small town Nebraska. My major is Elementary Education with an endorsement in k-6 special education. I'm a bit of a nerd too, but really I'm just a 23 year old who's trying to figure out this thing called "LIFE" :)
Dear Diary (Pt. 1)
Dear Diary, I don't think I have done this since I was the same age as the sixth and seventh-grade students I now teach. I'm all grown up now, I'm 24. I've graduated college, got my bachelor's degree, and I have my own apartment. I've lived here since July and my life seems to go up and down.
Divorce Through the Eyes of a Child
Divorce. It’s a scary word, it can strike fear into some, and for others it brings up old memories of a broken marriage and a broken home. To me, it reminds me of my early childhood. I don’t have many memories from when I was little, most of my childhood memories are from after the divorce of my parents.
Six Things I've Learned From Being in a Seven Year Relationship
I’ve been in a relationship for seven years, and in March it will be eight years. No, we aren’t married, but yes we do plan on getting married. As of when, well that’s a good question. We aren’t sure yet, I’m still in college and we are waiting until I can find a good teaching position and we can at least start to plant seeds to start roots.
Worst Year of My Life
Seventh grade, what I used to think was the worst year of my life. Seriously, I did. It was a new school, new town, new people, and even a new house. My mother had been in a serious relationship with a man for about a year or so, and they had decided to move in together. Ace is a farmer, so it’s not like he could just pack up his cattle and come live with my mother, brother, and me.
