The Look into Aubrie's life


       The look into my life is a wonderful adventure. My life hasn't always been so sweet, there has been some spice in my life. But, like I always say, no matter what comes in your life, there is a always a positive that may come out of every negative. The moments in my life that has been the " negative" has taught me life lessons that the supposedly "positive" hasn't. I use to wonder why we are so focused on trying to avoid the negatives in our life, I mean don't get me wrong I'm not saying become a negative person at all. All I am simply saying is to learn from the mistakes or " negative" in your life and grow from it.
     Our lives are what we make it believe it or not. The more we just sit back and let time pass us by, are the moments that we will regret that we did not enjoy. Also, enjoy your love ones. The little time that we have on this precious earth, we should enjoy our love ones as well. And we think that we can just treat people any kind of way and we can always make up for it, but no, life doesn't work like that. We are not promise tomorrow or today, Love the ones that love and care for you the most and don't worry what other people think. This is our life that we have to live with, you have to live with knowing that you didn't show much love to your love ones and when their gone, you can't do anything about it. So, that's why I say, just live your life full of joy and love. Be at peace with yourself and others around you.

                  USM Celebration of the 100th year

    The University of Southern Mississippi celebrates their centennial year of being an academic intuition. The centennial exhibit is there to provide students, as well as others that may come on the campus, a sense of knowledge about this school. From unseen athletic photos to how the school was founded. Some unknown facts about the university are that it started with 120 acres of land with only five buildings, the first football team started with only 13 men, and the school only had 227 students with 17 faculty members. So, being as it is today The University of Southern Mississippi has grown to over 16,000 students with about 500 or more faculty.
     Also, another interesting fact is that the only dorm for female students was Hattiesburg Hall, (which is an honors dorm now) and the President’s home (now the Ogletree House) which serves as the Southern Mississippi Alumni Association. Although the University is missing some gaps in this rich history of ours, the exhibit still provides us with appreciation on how far we came and the progress we have made and will make over the years.
