Stay Tuned.

I don’t really know how to begin this post. So much in my life has changed so quickly…

I graduated from college on May 18th and the following week was thrown into a whirlwind of job interviews. Another week passed and before I knew it, I was on my way to start an internship in Minnesota. I packed up a few things and moved in with my cousins. However, life was about to change yet again.

The first day of my internship, I was offered a full-time job at an advertising agency (what I went to school for). This was my goal! Excitedly, I moved back home for another week, traveled to my new city to look for a place to live (two times), and finally made the big move. During this time, my life was so busy between moving several times and starting a new career that I let Dancing For Degeneres slide. I regret stopping with all my heart. It’s been three months since I’ve moved and I miss the positive vibes that this project provided me with. Now that I live solo and away from my family and my best friends, I need to learn to bring this happiness back into my life. 

I want to get back on the horse. Who says I can’t? Remember that life is what you make it. Everyone struggles sometimes. Everyone makes mistakes. But who says that your dreams can’t come true even after you’ve fallen down one time? I say that I can still show Ellen what I’m made of and learn even more about myself and my new city in the process. Keep on the look out. New videos WILL be coming soon!!!

Keep Dancing.

It’s already October. As always the first month of school whizzed right by and as I look out my window right now, the trees are decked out in their finest colors. I am excited for what this month has to offer, but I am so excited to share about all my awesome experiences from last month….

I realize that I haven’t written in awhile (or posted any videos), but there’s good reason for that. I decided that this year (my Senior year) I’m going to go out with a BANG and try tons of new things and meet new people and simply just have fun. Hence the reason why I decided to run for UWEC’s homecoming queen.

See, each year every organization on campus has the opportunity to run a candidate for homecoming court. This year, the organization that I am apart of (TV-10) decided to take part in the homecoming festivities. For those of you who don’t know, TV-10 is a student run TV station on campus. We produce various shows that play on channel 10 in the dorms. This year, we decided to take part in the homecoming festivities to get some publicity and band together as an organization. In conclusion, I was asked to be the representative and run for queen. It turned out to be one of the hardest and best experiences of my college career. I was so lucky to have some truly amazing people backing me up and helping me campaign all over campus. Seeing the people I work with come together to show their support for TV-10 was awesome!! At the end of it all, I did not win queen. However, that’s not what’s important. What is important is that I met new people, got my organization’s name out there, and got to hangout with my best friends everyday for a couple crazy weeks! I am so proud of everything we accomplished.

Now that I’m back to normal life, I would like everyone to know that I am still dancing for lady DeGeneres everyday. I am in the process of editing some videos and will get them up as soon as I can. Enjoy the fall weather!!

Stay Happy!

What a drastic difference in the weather from yesterday to today!!

With the weather being cold enough, I was finally able to wear a scarf and enjoy my first chai tea latte of the season. All of these things brought upon the warm feelings of fall and I am more than excited for the season to get rolling.

Like many, the fall is one of my favorite seasons and on my bike ride this evening I started thinking about why…

1. I like jackets…scratch that, I LOVE them. I have one in particular that is my ultimate favorite. It’s a bright green pea coat that I’ve had since high school. It completes all of my fall outfits and I even wear it into winter. I can’t wait until it’s cold enough to take it out of the back of my closet.

2. Hiking in the fall is beautiful. Just a few weeks ago, I visited Hoffman Hills in Menomonie and I highly recommend that everyone visit here come October. There is an observation tower from which you can see trees and farms for miles. It’s loopy trails make you feel like you’re in an entirely different place….very Hunger Gamesesque!

3. Corn Mazes because growing up my parents used to take me and my brother to the pumpkin patch every year. Once there, we would play hide and seek forever. I guess I still haven’t quite grown up and am always up for a good game of hide and seek. I went to an apple orchard last weekend and got lost in the corn maze. Hopefully I’ll get to do it again this year!

4. Warm Dranks! There is just something about a good coffee drank when it’s cold out. My personal faves are chai tea lattes and caramel apple spice lattes. Put on a crazy crewneck sweatshirt and grab a drank, you’ll feel instant happiness.

5. Roasts and pies and mashed potatoes. Just three of my fave fall foods. Once again, this connects to my childhood. Mama T’s apple crisp is most certainly the bomb. And I also just have a food addiction problem so there’s that.

6. Football games are great because you get to hangout with all your friends and eat food and be hardcore fans! Packers Fo lyfe.

7. Fall music. I have some personal favorite songs that remind me of the fall season and you can listen to them below. While I have MANY dance jamz (of course), these are the ones that I daydream to when I’m biking to class and walking on campus….

1. All At Sea-Jamie Cullum

5. Blood-The Middle East

I’m kind of obsessed with these songs. Credit to my roommate for sharing her music with me.

Anywho, just thought I’d update my blog a little bit and branch out from just posting my videos so you can get to know more about me!! Hope you all enjoy your fall season! Don’t stress out about school too much…do some dancing…it always helps;)

My friend introduced me to the song “Live Like a Warrior” by Matisyahu last week and it is a perfect fit for my newest video! I definitely recommend that everyone download it:)
Onto other things….my first semester of my last year of college starts next Tuesday!!! Eeeek!
I am a mixture of excited and nervous.Excited that I’m almost done with school forever. Nervous because I’m not exactly sure where the heck I’m going…although this is somewhat exciting also. I am trying to remember that I can’t plan for my future, only enjoy today and see what happens tomorrow. One thing that makes me happiest is that I caught up on posting these videos this summer so I can post new ones every week this fall:) I am so thankful for each and every person who has watched them and/or danced with me in them. This project has taught me a lot about life. It hasn’t always been easy to stay positive. I’ve definitely had my down time, but I have learned and am still learning how to keep a good outlook each day. Just last night, I looked back on a bunch of my videos and felt the happiness I felt when I danced in them.

I hope you all have a wonderful semester full of new and exciting experiences. Remember to do the things you love. Remember to step out and try something new no matter how terrifying it might be. Remember to try living in the moment.
And of course, remember to do a little dancing!!
