One of my favorite things

Hello! How was your weekend? I did one of my favorite things this weekend…IMG_4898Jimmy and I went ice skating! I love, love, love ice skating. People in my life who are close to me think it’s funny that I like ice skating because I dislike being cold and I usually hate moving at fast speeds (in vehicles, etc.), but I love ice skating super fast like a speedskater.

Jimmy even tied my skates for me. What a gem.

I also attended Pittsburgh World of Wheels this weekend. Jimmy loves cars as much as I love ice skating, so we both had an enjoyable weekend. Some of the cars from the Batman movie were at the show because parts of the movie were filmed in Pittsburgh. Batman CarsPghI just had to take some pictures of Pittsburgh because the view from the convention center was nice. This photo was taken on my iPhone with a fisheye lens. I love photography.


Sorry I haven’t been blogging as much. Life is just busy lately!

School is pretty tough this semester, but it’s a good tough. I’m in a lot of classes for my specific major (journalism), so I have been learning about things that will hopefully apply to my future career… whatever that will be.. haha.

lifeI have been spending a lot of time studying, learning, snacking, running, and stretching. I have found that running is such a stress reliever from school work. I love to just zone out on a run and think of nothing and everything at the same time.


So, life is busy, but it may become even more busy because today I have an interview for a possible internship that I’m really, really excited about.

I’ve been praying about it–not that I will get the internship–but that I will be happy with whatever is in God’s plan for me.

Sometimes I think about all of the things I have to do, and it really makes me miss the calmness of winter break, but it makes me think about Ecclesiastes 3, and how there is a season for everything in life. That chapter in the Bible really comforts me!


Well, I’m going to get started on some homework and hope that the ice covering the streets of Pittsburgh has melted by the time I have to leave for school!!

Have a great day!


  1. Glad you were able to go ice skating. I like it a lot too (which is surprising considering I’m so clumsy). Life gives you lemons, make lemonade. I enjoy your updates but I love that you are enjoying life and the semester more. Are you training for anything right now with your running or running for the pure enjoyment? (I am enjoying the latter myself right now…pure awesome).

    1. I’m not training for anything now… just keeping up my base! It’s just so cold that I don’t even want to think about races haha. I am loving the pure enjoyment as well. Hopefully I’ll be fresh for some spring 5ks/10ks/halfs!

  2. “it’s funny that I like ice skating because I dislike being cold and I usually hate moving at fast speeds”
    ha! I’m the same way….except I don’t like ice skating! In addition to disliking the cold and fast speeds, I also dislike falling down 😛

  3. Did you skate at PPG? I haven’t been ice skating in awhile, but when I do, I’m always so paranoid I’m going to break a bone or something (I fall down A LOT, haha). But I always end up having a great time though! I’m glad to hear you and Jimmy had a great weekend!

    P.S. I hope the roads were clear for your drive to school. Can’t it just be spring already?!?!

    1. No, I didn’t skate at PPG… I wish! It’s so fun there! I totally thought I was going to break my arm yesterday. I was like, “Jimmy… I just have this feeling I will break my arm today. He was like, “Don’t say that!!” Haha.

      I leave for campus at 3p.m., so hopefully the roads will be clear. It’s been warming up a little! When are you flying to your dad’s?!

      1. Haha, that sounds just like me before I go skating! I am flying in on Thursday…I’m crossing my fingers that the higher temps will stick around for awhile!

  4. Studying and stretching… two things I never do but really should. I’m so jealous you went ice skating! And running- obviously you know my feelings on that haha

  5. I love your blog because you are so down to earth. You are such a great Christian and I really admire that. I too agree that God has a plan for everything and everyone. And rather than worrying about what’s going to happen, trusting in God will always comfort you. 🙂

    Very nice. 🙂

  6. I haven’t been ice-skating in ‘forever’ but I used to love doing it!!! 🙂 And you’re right… you never know what God has in store for you, when it comes to the internship or even when it comes to the career that follows! But if you wait for His guidance and direction, you can be sure that it will be amazing!! 🙂

  7. Good luck on your interview!

    I used to love ice skating when I was a kid – it was even a birthday party one year! I used to go to North Park – have you been? Haven’t gone in ages.
