A Shout-Out To All The College-Goers

     This week is my little brothers birthday and I'm bitter sweet about it. He is attending his first year at college so far from home (CA) and I am really going to hate it when he boards the plane in a few weeks. It kinda brings me back to my days in college. I am a proud graduate of the University of North Carolina at Charlotte (Go 49ers!). I've received several emails from fellow NC bloggers, and I love speaking with each of you. I loved college and I can't wait to begin a new program. I have been working hard to save up for my Ph.D and came across a great tool that I will be taking advantage of, we all know that college is outrageous! Instead of buying all of my books and then hoping the school will buy them back at 1/3 of the cost, I will be renting my books. I found a great website that can help you save up to 90% on textbooks and the best part is that every textbook you rent they will donate money to Operation Smile. If you are interested in learning more head on over to to learn more.


  1. Luckily I still have one more year before my oldest heads off to college, my youngest has a few more years before kindergarten. Crazy I know. If you are still sending out copies of your year at a glance I would love a copy. I am doing my year at a glance this next week. What I am really struggling with is how to do writing differently this year. How do you deal with all the different levels of writers?

  2. Don't forget about UNCW either missy :)
