Soonerthon: Why I’m FTK

Soonerthon: Why I’m FTK

2017 was my first time to do Soonerthon. I had heard about it since before I started attending OU via social media from friends + acquaintances that were already here, and I always thought that it sounded like a lot of fun. 2017 was my first year to be involved and I was bummed I hadn’t done it sooner.

And it’s finally that time of year – on Saturday, March 3, I will be participating in my second Soonerthon Dance Marathon as an OU alumna with a fundraising goal of $500. Last year I reached my goal of $100, and I knew that this year I wanted to do more. It’s just such a FUN and fulfilling experience to be a part of, and here’s why.

7 Confessions of a Dog Mom

7 Confessions of a Dog Mom

My decision to get a dog in the first place was kind of sudden. Every so often I would look around the animal shelters in town and make myself sad that I don’t have a dog. But a couple weeks ago, I found a puppy at the shelter that I felt incredibly drawn to. I went and looked at her during my lunch break, crunched some numbers, and realized I’m more capable of being able to own a dog than I previously thought – so I planned on going back and getting her after work. However, she was adopted not long before I got off. I was a little bummed, but knew deep down it was probably for the best.
