An Inspiration for the Ages…

Louisville (local pronunciation Loo-a-vul apparently) has been more than wonderful, more than amazing; this town is really phenomenal and I am having a blast. Actually, it’s going to suck, for lack of a more PC verb, rather badly to go back to the mundane stresses of everyday on Monday.

But, if I’m being honest, my life never seems to take on humdrum qualities from day to day. The past two years have basically been an emotional roller coaster ride! (I know that metaphor is usually overused in very clichéd instances, but I can’t think of a single better way to describe these years…)

So, I’ll be hitting the ground running first thing next week. I start my documentary for the Art With a Heart organization, which excites me more than you could imagine! I can’t wait to take what I’ve learned here at the conference and use it to make my piece all the better. If you haven’t heard of this organization, puh-lease go to their web site and check it out! These artists are crazy good people with huge hearts! I love them already. 

Not to mention, I have only three weeks of rehearsals to get ready for the open of Little Women at the Atlantic Beach Experimental Theatre, in which I will be playing Beth. :) I’m pretty stoked about this as well….I wasn’t sure about auditioning when I first heard about it but I am SO glad that I did because I had forgotten how great the book is and the play is so timeless and funny and happy and sad and everything you could want out of a show!

Oh, there’s also that small endeavor I like to call being a college student (and an intern.) I have other classes as well and honestly I’m not 100% sure how I am going to jam everything in, but I know I’ll make it work. Power through…and take a deep breath. That’s my mantra.

I’m super thankful for everything that I am a part of and so grateful to be in this remarkable place right now to better myself as a professional journalist and a human being. In the spirit of that, I leave you with some great photos from my adventures in Louisville thus far! I hope to keep updating throughout the conference…….and maybe actually talk a little bit about the classes next time! Ha!

I HAVE to post some of the great (and quite hilarious) photos of my 21st birthday asap! It was so much fun and we must have taken a million photos. I wore the cutest black dress with some amazing gold sparkling pumps. I hope I can find an excuse to wear the pumps again some time soon!!

Anyway, there’s no way they are getting posted very soon because I am in Louisville, Kentucky! The Associated College Press National College Media Conference is taking place this week and I am in attendance! Kentucky is actually really beautiful and Louisville is pretty culturally thick.

I am attending a session this week called “How to Make Your Blog (and subsequently yourself) Popular” and some other broadcasting courses that I am pretty excited about.

Until tomorrow…..

            I can not wait to start my senior project! I did my THIRTEEN PAGE          (!!!) show treatment for my presentation of my documentary today. It is very detailed, though so it sort of forced me to make some decisions about the project, and I think this organized document will be helpful later on. Once the documentary gets rolling, I will blog about the organization I am profiling. They are a really great group and I am so stoked to make this film.

My friend Sara and I did some shopping tonight and went in search of a dress for me to wear next Friday for my 21st birthday bash! J I think I have found the perfect one, photos of the event will ensue! 

Can I just say i <3 this photo!?!

I think I look just like my sister in this pic! How weird! That's why I posted it!

P.S. This outfit is SO comfortable. This dress is probably the comfiest thing I own.

            I have decided that I am going to operate within my circle of influence this year, and not in my circle of concern. I’m reading this book “7 Habits of Highly Effective People” for my senior seminar class and it has had a very powerful effective on me. Recognizing that you just can’t control everything and everyone has proven a real positive outlook for my life. I always try to do everything myself and I allow the things that other people say/do to fester in me until it causes a real problem.
            Now, I’m a big believer in only worrying myself with the things that I can change myself. If not, then it’s out of my life as fast as it came in! Anyway, here is the broadcast that we taped this week! Check it out if you have the time. J

I have been a terrible blogger as of late! Every moment of every day has just been uber exhausting and I hate that I don’t have time to blog properly because I truly love it. I am going to get back to it ASAP. I found my camera(which was missing!!) so I can capture my outfits….I have had some pretty cute and creative compilations lately and I wish I could have shown them to everyone!! L But, on the bright side, IT IS FALL!!! Yeah!

I never thought I would say this, but Florida has got to be one of the most beautiful places in the world right now! It’s been in the upper 50’s in the morning and the 70’s all day! Gorgeous!! So, now I'm jacked for knee high boots, tights, and scarves! Yess...

Until next time…(who knows when that will be? L) I leave you with this awesome video from the amazing Florence + The Machine!!
