These are a Few… Part 2!

29 Jul

Last Friday, I wrote a post about a few of my favorite things; here’s part 2! Three more random things I love include…

My Nook

For Christmas this past year, my fiancé got me a Nook, & I love it! I love the convenience & portability of an e-reader; I’ve been able to take it with my everywhere this summer to keep myself occupied as I was forced to play the waiting game on many occasions!

Currently on my Nook? The Hunger Games & the current issue of Shape magazine!

The Kennedys

Nerd alert! Ever since a family vacation to Cape Cod in the Summer of 2006, I’ve be fascinated by the Kennedys!

My family & I were on a boat tour that took us near the Kennedy compound, & then we went to the JFK Hyannis Museum where my interest was really peaked! If you don’t know much about this family, & you’re a “history buff,” I’d suggest doing some research – there are some good stories behind this family! Here are a few pictures from our peek at the family’s land:

College

 
 

I think I mentioned this in a post a while back, but I went to the University of Delaware & loved every minute of it!

UDel Delaware was the perfect fit for me. It was close to home, but not too close. The campus is beautiful & centered around an adorable Main Street. And of course, there was lots of yummy food readily available (which I’m sure is the case at most colleges). I attended UD from 2004-2008, & was an active member of Alpha Sigma Alpha sorority – such a fun time!

Where did YOU go to school?

    Gosh, all of this Kindle love is making me re-think my firm stance against them! As a Literature professor, I just ache at the thought of losing the tangible experience of holding a book and creasing back the pages!

    I went to the College of William and Mary. I loved it! I got married at the Wren Chapel on campus, where my husband proposed. We have vowed to go back every single year to visit and we do!

    I love UD. I remember applying there for my Ph.D. They have an awesome English department!

      I was skeptical about getting a Nook myself! I really, really like it though!

      William & Mary has a beautiful campus! I visited the campus when I was on vacation in VA with my family.

    I went to school at a university in Kansas…. Fort Hays State…. Yep, noone has ever heard about it, but it was GREAT! I loved college, I do wish I would have made more time for fun though. Too much studying was done… HA!

    I LOVE my nook!! 🙂

    I went to school at the University of Memphis. I really miss it too, especially our basketball games. If someone wanted to pay me to go back to school I would SO do it. My dad prob wouldn’t like that idea…
