SUYL: Alma Maters



Today is show us your life over on Kelly's Korner, and I thought I would tell y'all a little about mine since I don't think I've ever talked about it!

It may come as a surprise to some, but I hold a bachelor's in History and a minor in Bible from Harding University. I started out as Early Childhood Education, but after my second year I just hated the classes. I feel bad saying that, but it just didn't feel "right". I LOVED my History classes that I was taking on the side, and just decided to switch over to being a History major. My original plan was to get my master's after college, but I just never got around to taking the GRE and after I graduated, I kinda got a sick feeling anytime I thought about writing a thesis. So...I decided to take a year off and just work. I had never actually had a job at this point and we had just moved to Little Rock and Josh had just started med school. I guess the longer I was away, the more I realized I didn't want to go to more school. I knew that all I wanted to do was become a mom, so we decided that it would be best if I worked until Josh started grad school. Sometimes, I wish I would have majored in Family and Consumer Science, because that would be infinity times more useful, but I honestly love History. I know it's incredibly boring to most, but I just love it! My favorite is Southern History. Mostly because I love the South so much.

Harding was a great school and I never thought I would say this, but I miss chapel and Bible classes. After going to a private high school and then a Christian college, I was a little burn out on Bible classes after I graduated. We had to take one every semester, and in my case sometimes two. But, now I really miss it! We had to go to chapel every morning and it was just 20 minutes of devotional time, I remember thinking I can't wait till I graduate and don't have to go to chapel anymore. Hahaha
Anyways, so here are some pics of us during our undergrad years!






I know, not a TON of pics, but most of our pics during college are actually printed out and I'm too lazy to scan them. And yes, that last picture is of Dixie!!! Wasn't she such a cute little puppy!

So where did y'all go to school?

  4. I go to Harding!! I was home last spring and I listened to chapel online almost every day (don't tell anyone). I really missed it when I didn't get to go every day. I'm an early childhood ed major. It's my favorite. I love it sooo much!!
