5 Simple Words Could Lead to Scholarship Money

Have you ever thought about what the future holds for you? I’m not talking about which college you plan to attend or what major you will choose. No, I’m talking about life after college. I know when I was a senior in high school, I envisioned a life filled with adventure. My plan was to become a veterinarian and head off to Africa to help endangered animals. I was particularly interested in studying the big cats. I would dream about hiding in the brush just a few feet away from a pride of lions or playfully tagging along with a cheetah during a hunt. Eventually, I would settle down and open a sanctuary to help increase awareness about these majestic creatures.

Unfortunately, I never made my high school dream a reality, but that doesn’t mean my life isn’t filled with adventure. In fact, I have two feline friends at home who keep me on my toes. They may be small in size, but they have attitudes to rival any jungle panther or African lion. And, instead of helping endangered animals, I’m helping another struggling species — broke students, which brings me to the reason for this post.

Ice Cream Scholarship

Ice Cream and the 4th of July – A Perfect Scholarship Match!

I don’t know about you, but there’s just something about the 4th of July that screams summer is finally here! Maybe it’s the backyard barbecues or the family outings to the beach. Maybe, it’s the brilliantly colored fireworks that make us all feel like kids again. Or, quite possibly, it’s simply because it happens to fall during National Ice Cream Month.

5 Reasons to Love Five

5 Reasons the Number Five is Fabulous!

The number five is everywhere – in music, literature, sports and more! Without it, some things just wouldn’t be the same. For example, could you imagine how weird it would be if there were only four Olympic rings instead of five (sorry Australia!) or the Pentagon had only four sides? Don’t forget about your feet. Flip-flops would never look right with just four toes. In England, children can start drinking alcohol at the age of five (at home), which may explain why the U.K. is number six on the list of ‘Smartest Countries in the World’ and the U.S. is number two. Even nature is hooked on the number five. Cut open an apple and you’ll find five seeds. Many species of starfish have five arms (Patrick!) and wild roses have five petals. It’s easy to fall in love with the number five when you see how much influence it has in our lives. Here are five other reasons why I think five is fabulous!

Make Me Laugh

Laughter is the Best Medicine

Did you know that August 16 is National Tell a Joke Day? It seems like the perfect opportunity to share a good laugh with a friend or spread a smile to someone who may be having a rough day. My kids seem to come up with the corniest jokes, and although many are not that amusing, watching them deliver the punch line is always entertaining. Even when I am in a horrible mood, it is literally impossible not to laugh when something is truly hilarious.

Flavor of the Month

I Scream. You Scream. We all Scream for Ice Cream!

There’s nothing I love more than heading over to my local ice cream shop for a huge scoop of my favorite frozen treat. On most occasions, it will be something in the chocolate family, such as mint chocolate chip or chocolate peanut butter, but sometimes I step outside my comfort zone and try something different. One of my favorite haunts, Bruster’s, serves up some of the most unusual flavors I have ever seen. My kids are partial to their Cotton Candy Explosion (Pop Rocks in a sweet, blue mixture), but my husband drools over the Monkey Madness (banana ice cream filled with chocolate peanut butter balls and marshmallows). Personally, I love their fall flavors, like Pumpkin Pecan Cheesecake and Winter Wonder (white chocolate with peppermint flakes). With so many wonderful flavors, it could literally take years for me to sample every one of them, but I am certainly up for the challenge!
