Internships and Triumvirates

      So some incredibly exciting news, I have received an internship!!! I will be a staff writer for a publishing house here in Lubbock, Texas. This is wonderful as it can open up a lot of golden opportunities and get me a foot in the door within my field. I shan't get into the details as far as how it all came about but I am rather excited. Hopefully this will lead to the fulfillment of my dream to be able to write articles from my own home after I am married! :)

      Happy day, happy day! In my classes I have been beginning to feel like a Law Student since I am taking a Contemporary Rhetoric class and a class on Constitutional Law. I have studying, reading, and discussing rhetoric, the sciences of persuasion, as well as court cases and legal jargon. It's certainly a challenge and I by no means wish to be a Law Student, but I am however enjoying myself immensely. As an example, a favorite quote from one of my favorite poets and rhetoricians:

                                           "There is no lighter a burden,
                                                 no more agreeable,
                                                        than a pen."

    Though he is not a part of the great Triumvirates of Rhetoric such as, Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle, he is perhaps my favorite. Besides he was a poet ;)

The First of Last Days

Wow two posts in one day, I'm feeling really accomplished. I did hint that there would be another one involving pictures and such so here it is.

   An important moment today was my very First Day of my Senior year!! My last "first chapel" I find it very strange that I have reached this point but at the same time I am soooooo excited to be here! I left school last time a simple incoming senior but I have returned as an engaged woman to a wonderful man. Such an exciting year its going to be :)

                                           My fiance and I before taking our Engagement Pictures :)

                                       A sneak peak of the wonderful pictures!
                                           One of my personal favorites :)
But enough of cutesy engagement pictures that the awesome Debbie Nevins took, now for pictures of my last-first chapel:

           Well that seems to be all for now :)

Hello World

A clever title I know, how very original, but frankly my brain could not think of a more appropriate post title for this.

   This is the first blog I have ever had where it's actually just about me which I find slightly strange but I've decided that I need to try to keep up this blog and share small pieces of my life with my family and friends. Why the long, slightly poetic title? Well, mainly because those are just a couple of things that make me happy.
    Beautiful things are meant to create pleasure and enjoyment and seeing the sunshine stream through stained-glass windows, and enjoying the simple things in life like the subtle color of a rose-colored glass is one of the many things that we as a people should try to enjoy. I guess you could say I'm a believer in moments. The little moments when you are sitting around the kitchen table laughing so hard you're crying, or introducing your favorite movie to those you love. Those little moments in life are what creates an anticipation for the glories of Heaven and being with our Creator. I suppose all of that fancy stuff to say that this blog is going to be about all of those fun, sweet, sad, exciting, wonderful moments in my life.

    I am going to try and post pictures and such with most of my posts but this will be a simple, short and sweet one for now. Though later I will probably have one involving pictures :)

That's all for now folks!
