   Amanda's Adventurous School Days
By Amanda Calhoun

 Hi, my name is Amanda Calhoun. I am currently a junior at  
Valdosta State University in the  Early Childhood Education program. I transferred to VSU from Bainbridge College. I will hopefully complete my degree in December 2006. One day I hope to teach either Pre-K or Kindergarten in the Georgia Public School System. 

  I enjoy spending time with my boyfriend, Kevin. I also like to spend time with my friends and family. I am a huge Georgia Bulldog fan. I love to go to Athens to watch the football games. In my spare time I enjoy photography.  I also like to go the New Life Learning Center when I am at home and paint. I love to shop! I like music and I love to go to concerts. I went to the Gretchen Wilson and Big and Rich concert in Columbus, Georgia this past November and had a blast. Another great concert that I attended was the Alabama Farewell Tour this past March in Tallahassee, Florida. I have also seen Lynyrd Skynyrd, ZZ Top, and 3 Doors Down.   In the summer I enjoy going to Lake Seminole with my friends and riding the inter tube, as well as just riding the boat to the Flint River and to the Chattahoochee River.

I am from Colquitt, Georgia, a very small town in the  Southwest corner of Georgia. I have lived there my whole life and I absolutely love it! It is a very interesting and neat town. Colquitt is home to Georgia's official folk life play, Swamp Gravy. It is also home to the National Mayhaw Festival, the historic Tarrer Inn, the Henny Penny Production Company, and the Miller County Newspaper, my favorite newspaper. Since Colquitt is so close to the Florida coast I visit Panama City Beach as often as I can. There's nothing more relaxing than a day on the beach.
