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.

“Patience is a virtue, Possess it if you can, Seldom found in woman, Never found in man”

This quote might not mean much to many people, but it does to some. I often wonder what life would be like without having to wait for things. For old age. For next week. For the next bad moment in your life. For happiness eternally.

No matter what it is, patience is  gift. Some, unfortunately, do not possess that gift. They have a worrisome heart and little patience. Instead, they can only ask for the hurry in life. They don’t take time to relax. I know I don’t do it enough—I’m always on the go, never seeming to find the time to slow down and breathe.

But I know what patience is. I also know what not having patience is. This time of the year is a bad time for the latter. Knowing that the end of the semester is just around the corner, it is easy to be tempted to throw in the hat and decide the end is a breeze. This is very true for seniors who only have an exam or three in front of them and a degree. However, we must remember, as we have just under two weeks left, the importance of waiting till the end.

Good things come to those who wait. Maybe a good grade. Maybe good news. But among all else, a good feeling. Be patient and then be happy.
