Going to Church with President 39

My boyfriend and I have a list. This list is referred to as simply "The List". The List is comprised of things we want to do together at one point or another; including lofty goals such as a coffee and bagel date in NYC and more obtainable goals for broke college kids, like a Goodwill date. We began the list… Continue reading Going to Church with President 39

18 Things I Learned In My 18th Year

Today is my birthday! I am officially entering my last year as a teenager. If you've read my blog posts up until this point, then you know I've not been quiet about the fact this past year was very trying for me. I learned a lot about myself and those around me, and now I… Continue reading 18 Things I Learned In My 18th Year

A Tapestry of Me Book Club: Yes, I’m Already Slacking on My New Years Resolution

Yep, I'm that person. Unfortunately, I am here to report that I did not finish my book for the month of February. Maybe it's because I had three days less than every other month or maybe it's because I started binge watching multiple shows on Netflix. (Side note: The Assassination of Gianni Versace is incredible.)… Continue reading A Tapestry of Me Book Club: Yes, I’m Already Slacking on My New Years Resolution

Happy New Year!

How lucky am I to say that another year has passed? I'm a little late on posting this, but to be honest I've not had the time to sit down and write (for about a month, actually)! Every year I like to reflect on the past 365 days with gratitude, regardless of what has happened. And… Continue reading Happy New Year!

I Visited A New Church And You Should Too

Let me preface this by saying I love my church. I love our community outreach programs, I love our social events, I love the casseroles at the social events -- I love all of it. I have went to my church since the day I was born. I have sat in the same row, shook… Continue reading I Visited A New Church And You Should Too

What’s Really The Matter With Eastern Kentucky

I wrote this essay in December 2017 to use for a college application. I rewrote a few parts to reflect what I have learned, felt, and experienced since writing the original piece. This is one of my most passionate pieces I have ever composed. I hope you enjoy it.  --------- June 26, 2014, Annie Lowrey… Continue reading What’s Really The Matter With Eastern Kentucky

What “Her Campus: Guide to College Life” Didn’t Prepare Me For

A few days ago, a friend brought me a thoughtful graduation gift: Her Campus: The Guide to College Life. I'll be the first to say I'm not much of a reader -- I can think of maybe two books I have read cover to cover willingly -- but this one has kept my attention. I… Continue reading What “Her Campus: Guide to College Life” Didn’t Prepare Me For

The Blog It Is A-Changin’

Navigating the waters of blogging is tough, especially if you don't have a foolproof map to reference. From the beginning, I've used Instagram models with perfect themes and thousands of likes as a guide to what pictures I should post, and I've tried to create blog posts inspired by basic writings from The Odyssey that… Continue reading The Blog It Is A-Changin’

A Walk To Remember

It's hard to find yourself anywhere other than the center of the equation sometimes. In your small world of who you know, what you see, and how you feel, it's easy to get caught up in the "Me, Myself, and I" mentality. I found myself doing that this week. Even on vacation in Fort Walton, I… Continue reading A Walk To Remember
