So you have to "bear with me" as I plunge into the blogging world and take it on full force as one of your "Lamar University Bloggers"!! With that said...

I'm Chelsea!! The South Gulf Coast of Texas is where I call home

{humid salty air, and wild frizzy hair is my thing}

And the world of education is where my professional heart lies.

I can say I am a strong, independent person who is determined to make all my dreams come true [yes, I know so cliché] BUT, I also know how many of us are in school, with full time jobs, families, and a full plate of life still believe in the power of our "dreams" & I am definitely one of those!


I am not here to brag about or [complain] about higher education, but rather give advice, hope, and inspiration for those "I'm done!", "I can't do this!", "I'm gonna lose it!"; days... that I know WE ALL HAVE!

{& to make all the grammatical errors I please without a grade reduction. Just joking if any of my professors/ IA’s are reading this}


I, too, like you take on way more than I can handle at times, and I am constantly agreeing to do what sometimes seem like impossible tasks while still holding world champion titles like wife, fur mama of two, grad school, teacher to twenty-four rascals, aspiring blogger, living that "healthy three days out of the week lifestyle", ... AND the list goes on.

Don’t get me wrong there are beautiful, rewarding, and exciting moments to a full time life


for that reason I want to reflect all of it in my future blogs to YOU!!

So y’all stick with me and be on the lookout for all my latest snippets, tips, and sometimes cool tricks!!
