Cocoa Beach, Fla.

Yikes, I’ve been horrible lately! I got pretty busy with school leading up to Spring Break last week, which. Was. Awesome. As you can probably see from the picture above. That was just a short walk from our hotel room in Cocoa Beach, Fla., which was beautiful and relaxing and amazing. My spring breaks usually consist of going home and working to save some money, but this year, we actually got a vacation! I went to Florida with my mom and sister, where we spent a few days in Cocoa Beach then made our way to Orlando to go to Universal Studios. Where we visited…

That’s right, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. I’m a big Harry Potter nerd, and not just a movie fan (those aren’t REAL fans in my opinion, haha). I started reading the books in fourth grade so they were pretty much my childhood. When my mom and sister even brought up going to Florida for Spring Break, I immediately thought of going to Harry Potter world. It was everything I dreamed of and more! haha But really, it was pretty cool. I’ve got lots of pictures uploaded to my Flickr stream, a few of which are to the right, so feel free to take a look!

After the beach trip, we flew down to Austin, Texas, for my cousin’s wedding. My cousin that used to babysit me during the summers of elementary and middle school. It was so weird but awesome to see her get married. We also had lots of fun at the bachelorette party.

This picture is so us.

I had so much fun with all my family all week! It was tough to get myself back to Stillwater and back to reality. I can’t believe we only have about a month of school left, so hopefully it goes by quickly!

What did you guys do on Spring Break? Chill at home, save some money like I usually do or head to the beach like I gladly got to do this year?


Cinema Scoop

The last few days of my life have been consumed by creating a podcast.  It’s been stressful at times, but a fun ride overall.  If we worked it out right, my partner Greta and I spent about 10 hours total on this project, whether it be recording, interviewing, working in class or editing.  Late nights were spent in computer labs, but I’d say I’m pretty happy with the finished product.

We talk a bit about the Oscars, talk to some movie experts from Oklahoma State and give ideas for movies to watch if you happen to be stuck at home over Spring Break…much like Greta and I will be.
