The Always Awkward Ice Breakers…

Good evening beautiful blog world.

Think back to your first day of high school. Remember the weird people? The rude stares? The cafeteria food? And goodness, those terrible Ice breakers that teachers make you do before you even get the chance to catch your breath? It’s like: You’ve been running around, in a foreign place, all day looking for classes; you barely make it pass the bell, and already, the teacher wants you to stand in front of the room and introduce yourself.

Why????

  Let’s all be honest here: Ice breakers are no fun. You’d think, after you hit college, these instances would go away…but they don’t. Fortunately, the professors at MidAmerica want to know what you’re all about; they want to know what you’re majoring in, who you’re living with, and where you’re from. It’s weird, but the profs actually care–which isn’t a bad thing if you ask me. So today’s blog is solely going to be an introduction on who I am…minus the awkwardness, of course.

My name Is Britney. I’m crazy in-love with God. I am a sophomore with a major in English education and a minor in art.

I love to write! Whenever I think of a cool line or quote for one of my characters, I stick it on my desk!photo

I also really enjoy art. My grandmother is an artist, so I guess it runs in the family. I’m quite humble about my talent, and I don’t talk about it much, but I do have a strong passion for it. Here are a few photos!

Most importantly, I am crazy about my nephew–He actually resembles me a lot.  His name is T.J. and he’ll be three in October! He has a sibling on the way! Hopefully it’s a girl. :)

Welp, that’s me! I have officially completed an ice breaker without sweating, nervous jitters, and the thought of passing out. I hope I helped shed some light on who I am.

It would be awesome if I could hear from you all, too! I’d love to know about your weird first days of school, or what inspires you the most in life! To leave a comment, click on the title above! Remember: Ice breakers will always be awkward…but make the most of your awkwardness by getting to know the people around you! Trust me, no one is judging you. ;)

Talk to you all next time!

Love, Britney!

Welcome to Senior Year

September 9, 2013 | By | No Comments

Remember that one time when I wrote about living in California/Mexico for the summer? Well, my internship came to a close and I’m back in good ole Kansas. I traded the rolling oceans for this:

Kansas Sky

 

Strangely enough, the blank open space is refreshing after a couple of crowded cities. There’s no place like home! (sorry, I just vomited from my own corny-ness.)

The picture above is of my good friend Stephen and me sitting in Accounting class. Before the lecture started, someone turned around and said “smile!” and snapchatted it to me. Pre-collegiate friends who are reading, take note of 2 things:

  1. SnapChat is permanent, no matter what people say or what updates they send to your smartphone.
  2. Don’t put off your gen-eds until senior year. They may seem awful when you’re a freshman or sophomore, but they’re even worse when you are in your senior year!

Above is one of my roommates, Kassidy. We have already had time for a girl’s night out, event in the craziness of the first two weeks of school. She plays basketball and is like a sister to me already!

This is Tara, she is an admissions counselor and she is AMAZING! We also were matching on the first day of school!

It’s looking like a great year.

Hasta la pasta
