Spring Break 2012 Pt. 3

Happy Hump Day (also known as Wednesday)

So my Spring Break 2012 is still going strong. But things are starting to get a bit more stressful as the week progresses (in a good way)


A lot more driving around today. Went to lunch with my wonderful grandparents at their favorite Chinese buffett. After that, I went thrift store shopping with my mommie. Got a ton of books and this amazing shirt! What do you think?

Afterwards, I went to visit my God-sisters and my 3-year-old niece. I haven’t seen them in almost a year so I was super excited that they were here.

Sounds like a pretty relaxig day, right? So why am I stressed? Well, part of the reason I’m home is because my family and I are planning a big surprise party in honor of my grandpa’s 66th birthday and retirement. It’s going to be a big fun family affair but party planning is super stressful. I have to make a iMovie out of old pictures of my grandpa, I have to take family photos, I have to cook,and I have to sing. It’s a lot to do!

So these next few days will be all about my Spring Break adventures/my Grandpa’s Birthday Celebration! Stay tuned!

Spring Break 2012 Pt. 2

Greetings fellow Spring Break-ers!!

I’ve been having a wonderful break so far just hanging out around the house. So many amazing and beautiful things have been happening and I’m going to share them all with you!


So, I drove to Norfolk State University to visit my good friend Nick and we took a drive to the lovely Virginia Beach!!! Isn’t it beautiful?

Unfortunately, my camera died after these two pics! So, Nick purchased a handy dandy disposable camera (real old school style!) Check out my Just Pics tab at the end of the week to see all of the pics we took when they develop.

So, although it is my Spring Break, I’m still working hard to make my mark on the journalism world. I got an email on Monday from the T-Howard Foundation, this really cool organization that helps diversify the media world. They help students (like me) find internships with big media companies and networks. So anyway, I finally got an email from them about an internship opportunity. Guess where it is? (drum roll please)

CNN in Atlanta, Georgia!

I’m so excited! Fingers crossed, I get the job! Wish me luck and look out for more great news about my Spring Break 2012!

Spring Break 2012 Pt. 1


Hi everybody ! I hope you’re all enjoying the wonderful weather (if you’re having wonderful weather like I am). My Spring Break (my LAST spring break) is underway! Now normally, I do community service during my breaks from school by traveling to Philly and tutoring and mentoring urban city students. But this year, I decided to relax and go crazy like normal college students (and by go crazy, I mean do basically nothing extreme) and I’ve decided to photo-document every minute of it! Here’s part one…


So, I drove to North Carolina to visit my best friend (7 hours from where I’m from in Maryland) so the majority of the first day of my Spring Break went like this:

But I did finally arrive and got to explore and experience life at a HBCU (Historically Black College or University) and it was so much fun! And I made baked spaghetti for the first time! Yum! What do you think?

After a long Day 1 of driving, I slept in on Day 2. My best friend and I cooked breakfast. Unfortunately, I burned the toast. But the omelets came out pretty good.

I had heard so much about the famous North Carolina “Cookout” burger and shake joint, I had to check it out. And I was not disappointed! The best burger I’ve ever received for under 2 bucks. And I had my first Cheerwine (I think I’m addicted)


I made my way back to my hometown in Virginia that afternoon. I spent most of the day with my family. My aunt insisted on sharing her chicken livers (it’s a country thang, YUM!)

Chicken Livers!

Be on the look out tomorrow for more of my Spring Break 2012 photo updates!
