Memorial Day Weekend

For Memorial Day weekend Michelle and I had a great opportunity to go to Del Mar and have a mini vacation! Since we aren't married, it is hard to get away and stay at different places. But our friend works for Air1 and got us free passes for Spirit West Coast and I stayed in a hotel room with other guys and Michelle stayed with some girls. We had an amazing time! It was such a refreshing time for both of us. Here are some descriptive pictures!

We were boomin' to Toby Mac!

The Newsboys were sweet.

Some older guy parked his wheelchair in the parking lot. It was funny!

We heard Nick Vujicic speak. He is truly anointed.

We were able to spend a lot of free time at the beach. It was wonderful.

There is a park that overlooks the beach. It is one of my favorite places!

We are so O.C. with our Starbucks at the beach.

Stoppin' for a pic.

The beaches are nice because they do not have soft sand.

Overlooking the beach.

We decided to go to Coronado Island! This is on the bridge.

We visited the famous Hotel del Coronado.

This is on the top floor of the hotel.

Pretty sunset =)

I had a wonderful time with my love <3<3<3


Thank You Mexico!

In honor of Cinco de Mayo, my class had a celebration with nachos and horchata! It was fun! Yum, I really like horchata!


They Have a Good Philosophy About Education

Berea College in Kentucky is truly a remarkable school. I believe they have a great philosophy on education:

At Berea, which was founded in 1855 as the first integrated college in the South, all 1,530 students work at least 10 hours a week in a campus or service job, earning $3.80 an hour and four years of free tuition. Eighty percent of the school's operating costs are funded by its endowment and the rest comes from donations.

Instead of hiring workers and spending tons of money, students receive free education but they have to work at the school and maintain it. Obviously there are ways they have to spend money (room, board, transportation, etc.) and there is funding that is given because the teachers need to be paid. But I think this is a great opportunity for many low income families.

Their motto is:

“God has made of one blood all peoples of the earth. Since its founding in 1855, Berea College's scriptural foundation, "God has made of one blood all peoples of the earth," has shaped the institution's culture and programs. Founder John G. Fee, an ardent abolitionist, asserted that Berea was founded "in the midst of many privations and persecutions to preach and apply a gospel of impartial love..."
