Wow.

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!

Just thought I’d post a little happiness for the first day of school.
I’m starting my senior year tomorrow so that’s pretty rad!!
I decided I’m going to embrace it.
I’ve spent too much time stressing about school these past few years.
Totes not worth it.
Keep cool party people!!

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!!

A quote I heard at school…

“What we are today comes from our thoughts yesterday, and our present thoughts build our life tomorrow…our life is the creation of our mind.” -Buddha

I guess I’ll just keep thinking of being on the Ellen Show!

Things have been a little hectic lately.

I’m in the process of finishing up another semester of school and things got real after spring break.

As a result, I haven’t been able to pay much attention to this project.

That doesn’t mean I have given up or that it’s over yet. I definitely plan on keeping at this for a long time…even years.

Just because Ellen hasn’t contacted me ¬†yet surely does not mean she won’t.

I still have high hopes and goals of getting to Ellen DeGeneres someday.

In the meantime, I’m still dancing through all the ups and downs in my life, recording all the memories of each day and envisioning that moment when I’ll get to dance on the Ellen Show set.

Please keep following and dancing and doing things that make you truly happy.
