|Lauren and I at Denver Broncos |
football game in Dallas, TX
Hello, my name is Lindsey Edwards and I am a sophomore at South Alabama. I am an Elementary Education major and can't wait to have my own classroom. I have lived in Mobile since I was four years old and that is how I found out about USA. I live with my mom, dad, and my twin sister, Lauren. We are identical twins and she is also a student at South studying Pharmacy. All of my extended family lives in Mississippi, about an hour away, and I am so blessed to have an amazing family and support system. When I am not busy with school and other things I enjoy just spending time with family, friends, and my boyfriend Justin.
I have always loved children and being around them always brightens my day. Several members of my family are teachers and I have grown up watching them, as well as hearing stories. I have always wanted to go into education to make a difference in the lives of children. I know this is what God wants me to spend my life doing.
The most important thing in my life is my savior Jesus Christ, and I strive to live my life for Him and His glory everyday. I am very involved at my church, Moffett Road Baptist, as well as Baptist Campus Ministries here at South. I have met so many amazing people through the BCM and have had some amazing opportunities. One thing would be getting to serve as a summer missionary, where I spent every single day spreading God's love and the gospel. I was a day camp leader and got to be a part of various childrens' ministry. One of my other passions is traveling. I love to experience new places, people, and cultures. I also really enjoy the beach, it is one of my favorite places to be.
Dr Pausch Time Management
I have never heard of Dr. Pausch before, but I found his video very interesting. I am not very organized and I definitely need work in the area of time management, so I found this video to be very helpful. I have never really considered the value we, as Americans, place on money rather than time, but find it to be very true. As a nation, we are consumed with the idea of wealth, but waste our time doing pointless things. I also found the suggestion of doing the ugliest things on your checklist first to be a great idea and it makes a lot of sense.
