Bruno Mars in Concert!

Had to share this awesome photo of Bruno Mars and his band from last night. Doesn’t this picture just look like it’s straight out of the 70s? I love it. My fanhood (is that a word?) has increased tenfold for Bruno after last night’s concert in Orlando. He was energetic, talented, and put on one…

The E-Book vs. The Printed Book

I’ve been on a major reading kick lately. For anyone that knows me, they can vouch that I’m an avid-reader by nature, normally polishing off one novel per week – on top of my school and work commitments. For my birthday, my husband surprised me by purchasing the four major Kerouac books I’ve been dying…

Opportunities

With graduation less than six weeks away, I really feel like the momentum is building. I’ve gone through two interviews for internships. I’ve sent out samples of my writing to multiple companies, colleges (yes, thinking about grad school), and potential employers. This is really happening, folks. I found out last night that the owner of…

The Beauty of Silence

One of the things I marveled about during my hot air balloon ride last month was the weight and the power silence can have. There were sixteen people in my carriage, all chattering away, and it wasn’t until we were thousands of feet off the ground that people noticed it. The stillness. True, utter silence.…

Books I Couldn’t Live Without

Anyone that knows me would definitely recognize that I’m a book-lover. I’ve been a bibliophile since I was a child, constantly spending my allowance at the Scholastic Book Fairs and then begging my parents for more money because I wasn’t satisfied with the stack of books I’d already purchased. One thing a lot of people…

Twelve Weeks.

As of tomorrow morning, I am officially twelve weeks away from my last day of class at Full Sail University. Three classes. Three more grades. Just eighty-four more days of instruction and this chapter of my life comes to an end. I cannot believe how quickly time has passed. I started working on my BFA…

Core Values

I am very blessed to work for a company that truly has it’s priorities in the right place. In a bad economy, most organizations are focused on: “What can we do to improve the bottom line?” Where I work, they are focused on: “What can we do to elevate our employees?” As a result of…

Even an optimist can use a hand some days…

In case you’re new here, I’m Victoria Elizabeth and I’m a die-hard optimist. Normally. Today, I was feeling a bit out of my element. You see, I received some bad news this morning (news that I’m not yet ready to share with the general public, unfortunately) and I found myself – for the first time…

A Thousand Splendid Suns

I’ve been missing in action for several days on both of my blogs. Despite my personal life slowing down [no more brothers or sisters to get married, woohoo!] and my school schedule leveling off, I’ve not found time to post on here in several days. Why, you may ask? A few nights ago, after getting…

Hiatus

My apologies for the long hiatus! As many of you know, my husband and I moved into our new place a couple of weeks ago and we’ve only just gotten our cable/internet transferred over. A life without TV and home internet access has been interesting. Instead of surfing the web, we’ve been talking over dinner.…
