Weekly Recap

These past few weeks have honestly been crazy. I haven't had a moment to myself since Christmas (at least that's how it feels). We had a family emergency a couple of days after the holiday which lead to my entire 15 person family going down to Florida for a few days, then I went over to Tuscaloosa to watch the National Championship football game (really disappointed at the outcome!), and now I'm finally in one place for a few days so I can start to re-focus on finding a job and getting started in the real world!

I only have a few links that I've been wanting to share for a while today. All of them are videos, and ALL of them are amazing and deserve your view!!


Michelle Obama Thank You Notes // Ok, I love the Tonight Show. I love Jimmy Fallon and his humor. I also LOVE the Obamas. Politics aside, I have loved how funny and graceful they have been for the past 8 years, especially in the face of such hate and terrible circumstances. Michelle Obama shined so brightly on the Tonight Show, but this was my favorite segment of the night!

Obama Surprises Joe Biden with the Medal of Freedom // Can we all just agree that Obama and Biden are friendship GOALS? I'm a big fan of Joe Biden. He has overcome so much, and has tasted the sourest lemons life has to offer, and still manages to be good natured and full of hope. His lifetime of service has impacted countless lives. This surprise is so, so sweet and makes me even more sad to see the duo leave the White House.

The Person You Need to Marry (TED Talk) // This is an oldie but a goodie. Since the New Year is starting out I really wanted to share it with everyone. Let's make 2017 the year where we all commit to loving ourselves before expecting anybody else to love us too.

UofSC Rhodes Scholar // Everyone who has ever won the Rhodes Scholarship is so amazing. This year, a student at my Alma Mater won the scholarship! Although I don't know Jory personally, I have seen him around campus and have heard stories about his amazing personality and all of the obstacles he has overcome and couldn't be more proud that we attended the same school.
