God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
I am a happy-go-lucky kinda girl, with a good amount of realism thrown in there. My mom’s nickname for me has always been her “sunshine”. I try to be a positive influence in all that I do, little acts of kindness make a huge difference. And my family and friends are the center of my world!
Another major happy is the boyfriend. We’ve been together since December 2010, and are currently rocking the long distance thing. I love having him as my adventure partner and friend, and so much more!
I love food. Few things make me happier than creating something delicious in the kitchen. However, at college and sans apartment, this is a bit difficult. But I am not one to turn down a challenge (seriously, ask anyone who has played Sorry with me!), and have since learned how to create delicious, healthy meals with a little creativity and microwaving!
I love trying new, weird, healthy foods- thank you mom for teaching me to love fruits and veggies and Trader Joe’s for
giving selling me endless new foods! When I was two years old, we were at Denny’s and the waitress asked me what I wanted, I said “I need a brocolli!”. Two decades later and it is still my favorite vegetable!
For some not-so-healthy, but so-delicious, I love creating cakes. Fondant is so fun! But, I rarely have an occasion to make them. This is my favorite, I made it for my little sister’s red, white & black Sweet 16.
& The Me
I am a California girl through and through- I was raised near Palm Springs, but now I (finally!) live by the beach. I’m studying at UC Santa Barbara and absolutely love it! I’m a Kappa Alpha Theta, and I love living with all of my sisters. Best friends & the beach? Doesn’t get better than that!
After I graduate in Fall 2011, I plan on getting my teaching credential so that I can teach high school English. I am very excited for this coming year and all that it has in store for me!
