Blog Post #1

A little information about me!

Hello everyone and welcome to my blog! First of all, as you know my name is Makenzie Cunningham. I am a 22 year old newlywed from Mobile, Alabama. I was born in 1990 to my parents and four years later I got a baby brother. This past December, I married my best friend and we have been enjoying our journey together ever since! After graduating from Faith Academy (high school) I began attending college in pursuit of an elementary education degree. I began my journey at USA, but decided to transfer to Faulkner State Community College to get all my basics since they have the "cheapest tuition in Alabama". Now I am back at USA and completely driven to do my absolute best and finish quickly!

When I am not in class I enjoy spending time with my family and my husbands family, being at the beach, and scuba diving; however I spend a lot of my time working with our children's department at the church we attend. I find it very rewarding to volunteer a lot of my time with these children. My passion is definitely children in hopes of making a difference in their lives. My dream in life would be working in Baldwin County School Systems (or somewhere near a beach) and teaching children. Not only providing children with important knowledge they need to know for their education, but also showing them love and support along the way.

About the video!
I enjoyed watching the video about time management. I believe Randy Pausch is correct about Americans not taking time to manage their time. I like his idea to plan out my day, plan out my week, and plan out my semester. The biggest lesson I learned from this video was to break things down and to tackle the hardest or as he said "the ugliest" item first!


  1. Near the beach! Ah, now we know about your priorities!

    Do you know anything about Randy Pausch?

    A colorful blog!

  2. Yes, living near a beach is one of my goals in life, but I realize it may not happen as soon as I graduate.

    I do not know much about Randy Pausch. I have only viewed the video we were assigned to watch.

  3. Makenzie I absolutely love the color and contrast within your blog. The entire lay out of your page is very unique. The only negative comment I may have about your post is having a little trouble reading the font of the writing and the background is beautiful but maybe a bit too busy; however, that could just be my eyes! Your blog post #1 is lovely in that it tells a little of your past background and also lets the reader know a little about your present life. I too love the beach and have such a deep compassion towards children. I hope to be able to continue following your blogs and learn more about you as a person.

  4. Thank you so much for your positive and negative feedback! I have made some adjustments tell me what you think. Have I improved the font to make it more readable? After going back and reading through I had difficulty with the other font too.
