About Me

Untitled design (3)My name is Tori and I am currently attending school in Thousand Oaks. I started this blog to keep my family updated about my life. They are such big supporters and have made a huge impact in my life that I wanted to share my journey with them. I am 20 years old and my goal in life is to be a teacher. Now this blog has transformed from a personal blog to a college informational blog.

About Me:

I love Disneyland with a passion, I live about 30 minutes away so I was basically grew up with the magic of Disney.

Untitled design (4)I am a SoCal girl born and raised. I love the beach. I love the sun. In fact, I am a lifeguard at a girl scout camp on the beach. I could not ask for a better job because it is at the beach, and I get to work with children.

When I graduate college, I want to be a teacher. When I was a little girl, I always wanted to play school and be the teacher. I am a strong believer in the quote, “If you have a job you love doing, you’ll never work a day in your life.” This is what gives me inspiration to become a teacher because I know it is my passion and gift in life.

Untitled design (2)I love traveling and have been enough countries to the point where I can not count them on my fingers anymore. I love airplane rides (except for turbulence) staying in cabins, cruise ships, camping, and anything that has to do with adventure. I have gone parasailing, swam with dolphins, snorkeled with sharks and sting rays, made friends with moneys and much, much more.

I have never owned a dog or cat in my life, but instead I have a turtle and a fish, whom I love so much.

Harry Potter. This book series is what got me into reading and has made a huge impact in my life. I have been to Harry Potter World, Alwnick Castle (where Hogwarts is based off of,) and love just about anything involving the characters, actors, books or movies.(P.s. Have you ever had Butterbeer before? I have and it is AMAZING.)

I live off of organization. I love Pinterest. I can not survive with out my daily planner which I love with my whole heart.

I do not consider my self an artist, but I do believe I am creative.  I love doing DIY projects and decorating and washi tape.

About this blog:

    Hi Tori, you have no idea who I am but your Grandfather, Glenn Haas is my cousin. He is the oldest living Cushing relative and I am the second oldest.

    I am not an avid blogger but this is the one we did for the three trips we made to Africa. I taught Pastoral Theology, Marriage and Familly Counseling, and Spiritual Formation for one semester during three different school years at Nazarene Theological College.


    Wonderful to hear your refreshing thoughts and that you too, are a Child of God.
