ACC Championship Game

On Saturday, I was lucky enough to be able to go to the ACC Championship for the first time ever. I had gone to the evening tournament games on Thursday with a friend thanks to tickets from Craigslist. It was so much fun! When it came to be that the final championship game would be Carolina and Notre Dame, I realized I had to get tickets for my dad, because I had learned on Thursday that although he has been to countless college basketball games, he had never been to an ACC tournament game. On top of that, he has always been a huge UNC fan and we both hate Notre Dame (pronounced Noh-truh Dom).
Tickets had skyrocketed on Craigslist once Notre Dame won against Duke on Friday, and I immediately regretted not getting tickets earlier. I'm not good at navigating Craigslist, but thankfully, my friend Yadavan is. He somehow found some really cheap tickets for me and my dad and before I knew it, we were at the championship game! 

The game didn't have the outcome that we expected or wanted, and millions of people were crushed. But my dad and I had a great time, and that's all that really matters in the grand scheme of things. I can sit here all day and say whatever about Notre Dame, but they really did play a great game. And it's just that - a game! At the end of the night, I was just really glad we got to go be a part of the experience. The ACC Tournament won't be back in Greensboro for five years, so I'm very thankful we got to go. Going to basketball and baseball games has always been me and my dad's thing - something we've always done together. He's the one that raised me to cheer for the Tar Heels!
So glad this happened!

SSP for Warby Parker!

A couple years ago a friend told me about this really trendy site where she ordered her eyeglasses. I had asked her where she got such cute eyewear and her answer was  "Warby Parker!"
I went to the website and was overwhelmed by all the choices! Not only were the glasses trendy, but there were many traditional looks, and awesome colorful frames as well. There were countless options for both men and women, in prescription glasses, non-prescription, AND sunglasses!
I feel like sporting glasses rather than contacts has made a comeback in a big way, and now glasses are an accessory and make a bold statement to complete your look in addition to helping you see.
If you order from WP, you can have FIVE pairs sent to you if the glasses are "available for try-on" before you actually buy them! I have a friend who did this, and it was so easy and fun. I feel like many times, people are wary of ordering frames online since they can't try them on and see how they look, but Warb…

Riches I Need Not, Nor Man's Empty Praise

I haven't written anything on here since MARCH. ...not anything from my own spiritual journey. I've done promotions for two companies and that's all I've posted. I am realizing that when I write, I am a better person. I can't believe I haven't written on here in seven months. It makes me sad. I've felt a void!

Ironically, though, what I came here to write is the same topic as what I last posted about - what others think. I found a version of "Be Thou My Vision" that I really love about a month ago, so it's been on repeat. As I'm busy with everything going on in life, I have to constantly remind myself to keep my eyes set on Christ. The line that has stuck out to me the most over the past month is
"Riches I need not, nor man's empty praise."

I'm teaching 9th and 11th grade this semester. In both classes we are reading books set in the Great Depression. We've had discussions (sometimes debates) about how money can't …

Fix My Eyes on You

On the day I called You answered me And the hope in my soul increased I lift my hands And turn my eyes To the God who heals my heart And gives me peace
You are more than My words could ever say You are Lord over all Over all of my days I will see this season through I will fix my eyes on You Only You ~Hillsong
I heard this song for the first time the other day when I was really anxious about some stuff during my planning period at work. I didn't feel good and my mind was a little overwhelmed.  During those times when my mind is so boggled, it's hard to just sit back and have peace.  During those tumultuous times when it seems like everything is going the opposite of what you'd planned and everything seems to spin out of control, it's hard to remember that God, the Creator of all being, is in control. During those times of change and confusion, it's hard to trust that everything is working out just the way God has planned it to. During those times when life's just p…
