#GivingTuesday Alzheimer’s Association of Orange County!

Hi all, hope you had a great Thanksgiving!
If you follow me on other social media you’ll know that I’ve partnered with the Alzheimer’s Association of Orange County for a #GivingTuesday awareness campaign as part of my Thesis exit project. We are going to Barry’s Bootcamp at 4:15pm, TODAY, 11/27 to participate in one of their amazing classes. A healthy body = a healthy mind!

If you want to participate in the class it’s only $24 & the proceeds will go directly towards the Association. If you can’t make the class, donations are always welcome, even beyond today’s mission! Please share this opportunity amongst your friends & family – you never know who this could effect.

Alzheimer’s disease is the THIRD leading cause of death in California and 83% of caregivers are friends and family. 25% of those unpaid caregivers are from the “sandwich generation” – meaning, they not only care for an older person, but also have children under 18 to care for. This disease takes an emotional, physical, mental, and financial toll on all those it effects. We need to support the Alzheimer’s Association in their efforts to advance research, provide and enhance support for all affected, and promote brain health!

Hello all! It’s that time of the year for students – FINALS!!! I’m in the process of writing a TWENTY page final for my Tourism Attractions class at CSU Fullerton. This paper focuses on the Marketing and promotional techniques used by a local attraction – Glen Ivy Hot Springs. Part of the paper requires me to conduct a survey, which you will find below!

Please click HERE to take my super short survey & help me finish this paper!!

Thank you to all who participate, you are amazing people!

Announcement! Grad School

Happy December!

I can’t believe 2016 is almost over – thank goodness! It’s been a weird year for all of us it seems, so let’s hope 2017 brings some much needed positive change. Speaking of which…I posted about something on social media earlier – @MissAl_Leigh on Twitter & Instagram – that I also wanted to mention here.

I have been accepted to Cal State Fullerton’s Graduate School where I will earn my Master’s Degree in Communication Studies with an emphasis in Tourism & Entertainment!

I’m really nervous for this new adventure, but I’m excited to be going back to SoCal.Β While it seems like I would be even busier,Β I anticipate having MORE time to spend on the blog/vlog as I will only be in school two days a week with no job YET. I’m sure that will change as I find work & school picks up, but we’ll climb the hills & valleys together as always πŸ™‚

Thank you for the continued support & stay tuned for upcoming vlogs like Food Friday & a Winter Haul! As always, please FOLLOW, COMMENT, SHARE, & LIKE!
