On Life...

Well, since I first started this blog, I have thought often of writing in it. The problem is that I have a very organized mind, so I felt I had to write things in the order they happened.. Since that obviously has not happened and probably never will, I want to write a quick update on my life (for those I don't keep in touch with often). Then I will let people know this blog actually exists and can hopefully blog more routinely. :)

So... I finished all the requirements for my Bachelor degree in Social Sciences this summer. Yes, that is a four-year degree completed in 10 months, 7 days! I'm now waiting to graduate from Thomas Edison State College, a regionally accredited school in New Jersey, sometime in December.

After finishing my degree, I ended up spending a month traversing the country; in Virginia for a camp called iGovern East, back to KS for a couple days, up to Nebraska to see grandparents, drove out to Colorado for iGovern West, stayed in CO for a week after camp with my family who is out there for awhile, back to KS to plan a Bible Bee and now planning to head to Pennsylvania this weekend! It's been busy, but fun.

In the midst of all that, I started a job with CollegePlus!, the organization that helped me plan and achieve my goal of getting a degree "Faster, For Less and For Sure." I'm currently coaching 18 students to do the same thing I did and enjoying it so far.

I am also hard at work organzing a Bible Bee in Wichita. We have around 40 contestants and are down to the last couple weeks before the competition, so there is a lot to do.

On a more personal note, I just spent a wonderful couple of days with my best friend and am off to Pennsylvania this weekend to spend some time with another great friend. For those of you who know I was hoping to go to China--well, I didn't. My dad left this past Saturday, but because his schedule was so full, I was not able to go with him. So I'm going to PA instead and hopefully can tag along the next time he heads somewhere. (He did mention Europe...) ;)

Well, hopefully that brings you up-to-date on my life thus far. I will hopefully elaborate on all the exciting things I'm a part of later on. I just wanted to let you all know I'm alive and well and that I DO plan to keep up my blog--somehow.

God bless!


  1. Hi Brittany! Wow! How in the world did you do that? ...the college degree thing in 10 months, I mean? Last time I heard anything, you had accepted a scholarship to Patrick Henry and were attending there. How was that, and how did it all culminate in such a rapid finish? How politically active are you these days? I need a name for a campaign manager for Sumner County for Sam B. if you have any suggestions...I had to say no, but agreed to send along recommendations. Lovely hearing from you, and glad to be able to keep up!

  2. Hi Mrs. Hathaway! I earned my degree with the help of an organization called CollegePlus! They assisted me in planning and completing all the courses necessary for my degree through CLEP and DANTES testing. I was at PHC, but came home after a year, was introduced to CP! and started the next fall.

    Hm... no one comes to mind for Brownback. The problem I have is that most people I would recommend are off to college somewhere now! :) But I'll keep it in mind and let you know if I think of someone!

  3. Great to read about your life, Brittany. I actually wondered, at times. ;-) I like your blog, and I look forward to reading more of your writings. :-)
