I am from the rural dirt roads of Botetourt County, Virginia. I choose Longwood because of its size and friendly atmosphere. I am heavily involved in my school and community both here in Farmville and back home in Eagle Rock, Virginia.

I serve as News Editor for The Rotunda, the student newspaper here on campus, and have been writing for the paper since March 2009. I am also a Sergeant-At-Arms for the Longwood University Judicial Board. I have spent this summer discovering the world of online freelance journalism and have quite enjoyed myself.

Cyber Time


Some people like to wake up at 3 a.m. Some people, like me, enjoy not doing that. Instead of taking part in the Black Friday tradition, I instead go for the Monday after the biggest sales. I head to Cyber Monday to take part in the better deals. By better, I mean that I’m able to sit at home and online shop. You know why that’s great? I don’t have to waste gas. I don’ t have to deal with the crowds. And I don’t have to risk being punched in the face by an angry grandmother.

All I have to do is have a quick trigger finger.

For the past two years, I’ve done the majority of my shopping online. I see it is a better option–quicker and more affordable in many cases. I like to go on eBay because they have the 25 days of deals–different deal sets everyday to choose from. A lot of eBayers also like to slim down their prices (including me) for the holiday season to get more buyers. I like it because it’s store-to-home shopping, something that doesn’t take me a lot of time or take away a lot of my sanity.

I invite you to give cyber shopping a try. Yes, Cyber Monday may have gone and past, but there is still a good chance to do some great online shopping. Why waste the time at the big shopping centers when you can grab some great deals online? I say don’t risk the big box stores when you can just click buy now.
