Grades have always been important to me. I started taking college classes at the age of 15, and (finally) had my first summer off from classes just this past year. 144 credit hours later, I have a bachelor’s degree, and am two semesters shy of my second one. In my time at college, I have earned 35 A’s, 8 B’s, and 1 C. And I can tell you without a shred of doubt, that that one C taught me more than my 35 A’s and 8 B’s. Without further ado, here’s the tale of a princess sitting in her kingdom without a care in the world, only to become a damsel in distress. (Don’t worry, the story has a happy ending. And it’s also not that dramatic.)
I have been wanting to write this post for a long time now, but I never really felt that push to write it…until now. Recently, I came across a girl’s blog. I noticed straight away how similar we were: both southern, both blondes, both attending SEC universities, and both come from good families. Then I read it. The most striking similarity of all. My stomach dropped and my throat locked up. Because we are both survivors of an abusive relationship.
Hey guys! I’ve finally returned to Tuscaloosa after spending some time in one of my favorite cities, Nashville, TN. I’m already excited to go back! My purpose for this little day trip was to receive my training for the Music City Bowl. This will be my second year working with the Music City Bowl, and I couldn’t be more excited! The Nashville Sports Council is a great group of people who put on phenomenal events each year, and fans definitely won’t be disappointed with this year’s bowl festivities.

Happy Monday everyone! Let’s start off the week with a happy spirit and good vibes. Here are some items that I am currently coveting (and give me the good kind of blues). Click on the name of the pieces to get more details!
Last night, Saturday Night Live opened their show with a sketch making fun of Alabama football. Pro wrestler John Cena played the part of an Alabama football player giving his final science presentation. While he states that the main reason he is at Alabama is because of his “abilities on the football field”, he earnestly insists that he takes his academics “incredibly seriously”. In response, one of the teachers tells the player that they will treat him “like any other student”, and then proceeds to thank him for signing his Alabama hat. Another teacher makes a comment, wearing crimson and white face paint, saying light-heartedly, “Absolutely. Don’t you expect any favors from us.”
