I came to OilerNation from a very small town in the middle of cornfields called St. Marys, Ohio. I’m involved in both choirs on campus, Circle K International, Circle K International’s Dance Marathon, Habitat for Humanity, and Campus Ministries! So to say I’m busy is kind of an understatement at this point… but I wouldn’t have it any other way! I’ll be documenting lots of my crazy days here on my blog, you won’t want to miss it! Enjoy!
Somehow, time has flown by and this year I started my third year here at the University of Findlay! For a pre-physical therapy major, junior year is usually pretty stressful due to *cue scary music* the PT graduate school application. On top of the crazy and intimidating graduate school application, I have also taken on a couple more responsibilities within the organizations I am in. So, while my class schedule is a little more relaxed, and I am indeed taking less credit hours, the hours I have been putting in with my organizations and my application have all added up to the reason I am just now getting to working on my blogging. Sorry to keep you all waiting!
As I mentioned earlier, I am currently working on the Physical Therapy, non-direct admit, graduate school application. If you’re a pre-physical therapy major, this is … Read More »
The last few weeks of the semester are always the hardest. Suddenly, everything that you put off because “It isn’t due until the end of the semester” is now a giant stressor because abruptly it becomes “This is literally due tomorrow.” It’s usually a crazy, stressful and not fun time. Many are usually running on pure coffee instead of running on sleep. You might see someone sleeping in the College of Business or the AMU and instead of thinking that they’re strange, you wonder why you didn’t bring a blanket so you could do the same thing. It’s definitely a very strange time on campus, where you can do almost anything and everyone will just shrug it off and remark, “It’s finals week, so it’s fine.”
This being my fourth semester at UF, I thought I would share with you some of … Read More »
More than likely, someone in your life or someone you know has been affected by cancer.
In 2008, when I was just 10 years old, I lost my grandpa to cancer. When he passed away, my grandpa no longer looked like my grandpa. Cancer completely overtook him. This disease didn’t just destroy my grandpa, it destroyed my family too. Losing him at such a young age was hard for all of us. I never really understood what was going on. I realized he was sick, but I never thought that he could be here one day and gone the next. Since he passed away so young, he never got the chance to see any of his grandchildren graduate. He never got the chance to see any of us go off to college and he never got the chance to meet the … Read More »
Being a health science major is exhausting! Honestly, just being in college is exhausting. My days are often busy, crazy, and filled with lots of coffee, which is also a very normal “college thing.”
This vlog is just a quick sneak peek into what an average Monday in my life looks like! I usually start off the day getting up around 7:45 a.m. or 8 a.m. Insert first cup of coffee here.
Next, I head over to my art class, a nice and relaxing class that I’m taking to fulfill one of my undergraduate requirements. I haven’t taken an art class since elementary school, and it’s been a ton of fun. This class is also a great way to take a little break from my crazy stress.
Usually after art, I head to one of my favorite places in Findlay – George House! Insert … Read More »

When you move away for college, everyone tells you that you’ll have the time of your life. They say you’ll meet new people, experience new things and make new memories. I think all these are true, and I have already met some amazing people and made great memories in my short time here at Findlay, but what happens when that one person you want to experience all of these things with is three hours away from you?
When I started dating my boyfriend, Johnny, in 2013 at the end of my freshman year of high school, no one prepared me for the journey we would take together. I thought the hardest things we would ever have to tackle were prom plans, long football practices, and having … Read More »
