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.

Valentine’s Day


It’s a four letter word some people enjoy to hear and others snarl at. I’m one of those former people. I love love. I suppose Valentine’s Day is a bit more enjoyable when you have someone to celebrate it with. I am lucky enough to have a significant other to share the day with.

Part of Valentine’s Day had to be celebrated on Saturday this year due to the business we both had coming forth on Monday. We had meetings from about 6 p.m. up to 10 p.m., leaving the prospect of eating Farmville dinner a bit rushed. So we decided to go to somewhere new on Saturday. Well, I decided. Nicole and I tried out The Dutch Rabbit, up on North Main St. It’s a quaint little place housed next to Big Dogs, a bar and hang-out spot.

The food was plentiful and delicious. We both had to leave with a take out both. We’ll be going back soon I’m sure since we both couldn’t stop talking about it the rest of the night. We decided it would be best to do presents on Monday so we’d have something to do on Valentine’s Day now that dinner was out of the way.

We were both pretty busy all day Monday but managed to see each other¬†spastically¬†throughout the day. I got dinner from Moe’s for us to have in The Rotunda office (Monday night is pre-publishing night, so we try and get as much done as possible). Once I was finished with my meeting, at 10 o’clock, I headed back to the room to grab a shower and clean a bit. Nicole had a few things she needed to do in her room so we could hang out at 11.

We did gifts first when she came over. I got her a miniature rose bush (which produces more roses than a dozen, I hope) and a few other sweet-nothings. She got me a fish! I made a remark a week or so ago that I wanted a fish for my room and she said I’d be a bad parent. I guess it was her way of saying “No. I’m getting you that.” Either way, the last time I had a fish I was still picking my nose. Still have to name it, something other than Mr. Fish.

We then watched Valentine’s Day, which is, if you haven’t seen it, one of the best movies I’ve ever seen. It never gets old and you notice new things each time you watch it.

I had a wonderful Valentine’s Day and I can’t for many more days with you, Nicole. I hope that everyone out there can find a love like I have. Just remember, no matter what, there is someone out there who loves you. Who loves you lots.
