My Summer Abroad

My Summer Abroad

Time is a funny thing. Three weeks ago today I flew back to Alabama from Rome, Italy. Two days before that, I was wandering the streets of Paris with some of my friends. And still, the four weeks prior to that I was living in Salamanca, Spain studying Spanish and learning a thing or two about life. 

A Mindful College Pursuit for Juniors

A Mindful College Pursuit for Juniors

When I was a Junior in high school, I didn't even have college on my radar. I was content with putting all college decisions off until my Senior year. However, lots of my friends were already visiting schools, meeting with coaches and departments, and researching admissions requirements, so if you're not like me and want to get started on finding the right school for you, keep reading. 

Finding Yourself

Finding Yourself

Let me start by saying this: I cannot give you a step by step guide to figuring out who you are. No one can. However, I can give you some tips that have helped me decide who I am.

Where Are The Choctawkers?

By now, Spring Break is happening and the Choctawk staff is out adventuring and resting in all the different places.

For a small Christian university in the heart of the south, Mississippi College has incredibly diverse population. From the United States, 39 states are currently represented on campus, and over twenty international countries have students attending school here. 

Finding Yourself Abroad

Finding Yourself Abroad

I went to five countries in three months. And every country, wrapped and soaked and drowned in its culture, taught me brand new things about myself and about the world. 

Dream a Little

Dream a Little

So I started thinking about the smaller dreams: not the life-altering revolution that captivated my attention for years, but smaller gifts that I had taken for granted.  And when I got into the habit of living in the gratitude of these small gifts, I freely lived in the deepest contentment.

My People. My School. My Family.

My People. My School. My Family.

Quickly after starting college, I learned that people need other people. I learned that we were not made to do life alone and to walk through our journey without other people supporting us. We were made for fellowship and community and to feel loved. Walking around MC you can find some of the best people in the world and among them, I've found my own little family.
