After falling out of the shower and bashing my head on the toilet, I realized that the shower is, in fact, NOT the best place to try and learn the "Running Man" dance. True story!

But on a more serious note, I love to have fun and interacting with people. Although if you ever see me on campus I am probably jamming out to my IPOD, so sometimes I can be oblivious to the people around me. Recently I have become very involved in activities throughout Longwood University and the community. I am the President of the Longwood Young Dems club, the treasurer of the Criminal Justice Fraternity Lambda Alpha Epsilon, and a member of the Honors Sociology Fraternity Alpha Kappa Delta. This summer I took on a role of a Common Good Summer Fellow to help campaign for Virginia's 5th district Congressman Tom Perriello, and have built up several relations with people in 4 surrounding counties that will last me a lifetime.

Best for Last

The week between Christmas and New Years day brings us a plethora of “Top Ten” lists in every area of politics, culture, media, and sport. I figured I would take part in this annual tradition! This list is comprised of my interests spanning from personal moments to the all encompassing things of the year. ENJOY!

POLITICS (not in any specific order):

January 9: Republican Scott Brown took the lead over Martha Coakley in the Senate special election.

March 25: Congress passes the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010.

April 23: Republican Gov. Jan Brewer became the face of the anti-illegal immigration movement when she signed Arizona’s controversial law, S.B. 1070.

May 8: Republican Sen. Bob Bennett of Utah was ousted by the GOP. He was the first incumbent to go down in flames in 2010, Bennett’s loss served as a warning that no incumbent was safe.

June 8: Primary elections in 10 states and a runoff in Arkansas set the stage for some of the most compelling and crucial races in the country.

July 2:  Michael Steele came to losing his job was after he suggested during a fundraiser that the war in Afghanistan was not worth fighting.

August 28: Glenn Beck’s “Restoring Honor” rally in front of the Lincoln Memorial offered a high-profile demonstration of the cable television host’s and former Alaska GOP Gov. Sarah Palin’s following.

August 30: GOP took a 10-point generic ballot lead with the general election starting in full that week

October 30: Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert, the founding fathers of fake news, drew throngs of exuberant supporters to Washington for a joint rally that crowded streets, taxed the transit system and flooded the Mall.

and now I know I am going over the generic ten, sue me….

December 20: The Senate ratified the new START treaty – the most important arms control agreement in almost two decades – in a bipartisan vote.  In so doing, they demonstrated America’s leadership on non-proliferation issues, reinforced America’s relationship with a key ally, and made America safer.

December 22: Washington brought an end to the longstanding injustice created by ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.’  Ending ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ was the right thing to do for America’s military and for America as a whole.  Never again will patriotic American service members be forced to live a lie or leave the military as a result of their sexual orientation.  America upholds the ideal that all men and women are created equal, and the repeal of ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,’ firmly establishes that ideal in the law.
