Summer Break

The first few months of 2015 have been a whirlwind, with barely a moment to take a breath and catch up on life. I spent nearly four months serving as the producer on the morning news show, The Daily Buzz, while balancing my full-time job as a Supervisor of Admissions. It was a dream come…

And so it starts…

On Monday, the Spring 2014 term at Rollins College officially starts. I will attend my very first MLS class on Wednesday, January 15th. I’m nervous. Anxious. Excited. Prepared. I’ve been waiting for this day since the moment I exited the stage from my BFA graduation ceremony. In many ways, I feel like most of the…

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…
