About Me: 
I am currently a college student at a local community college where I'm planning on finishing in the next few months then in the fall I will be transferring to a four year university. I love random useless trivia, laughing, quotes, music, and being a Auntie. Faith, family, friends, education, and volunteering are what I center myself around. I spend most my free time volunteering. I'm the third of six children all of us girls in my family, crazy? most of the time, but I wouldn't have it any other way! My three younger sisters are all adopted and have gone through some pretty terrible things so early in their life. It has made me see how lucky I really am. For the past six years I have spent my Spring break going down to New Orleans to help re-build homes. This is something that is very near to my heart and continues to be. I truly enjoy helping others and being there for people! Within the next two years I am planning on moving down to New Orleans to spend a year or more rebuilding.

Hey Brittain,

Just read Gayle's message below and she did not leave out any social media platforms! Did you happen to notice a new discussion thread started yesterday by our dear friend GML? She definitely wanted to cover all bases to show #ChaserLove to the one and only Frittain.

Hope you had a great birthday,
Stacey (Fab4tune)

Hi Brittain! I wanted to stop by your profile and wish you a happy happy Happy Birthday! (Actually I didn't want to leave out any of the social media platforms,{at least that I know!})!!!
A Super Day to a Super Chaser, and Lady!

Fab4tune's picture

Hey girl, I had to come back to remember what I wrote you in January! So excited for your upcoming trip to New Orleans and seeing the guys down there. Also noticed your birthday is coming up VERY soon so I know you'll have a lot of Chaser love coming your way that day! Can't wait to hear all about your continued great work in N.O. and your SNC show.

ChaserHugs, Stacey

Hey sweetie you're missing out on (mine & Karen's) Flat Brittain talk on "Seggie Love" thread - It's not like you to fall behind on those postings - DONDE ESTÁ BRITTAIN *wink*

EileenR's picture

You're welcome! Thanks for adding some more funny links to the discussion. I'm excited that people are having fun with it.

Betsyjeans's picture

Hi Brittain, it will be great to join the group at dinner and the concert, I'm so looking forward to it...and meeting all the fun-loving chasers!

GML's picture

Hi Brittain! Are you "chatting" tonight?

Tara Marie Ahn's picture

Thank you, Brittain! :)

sara_s's picture

thanks for all the comments!!!! i'm glad you enjoyed them :)

KarenPNWChaser's picture

Seggie is the easy one to talk to as he's so outgoing and funny!!! :)

KarenPNWChaser's picture

Yeah, that would sure be fun to get Seggie to sign a picture down there for you! He's fun to talk to and always cracks jokes! He doesn't make me stutter like Elmer Fudd like Randy does!!!

KarenPNWChaser's picture

Well, I could take a flat Brittain! If you happen to get a good picture of you with Seggie at the Seattle show, you can always email it to me, I can get a 5x7 print, and have him sign it. I can even have him address it to you! Wouldn't that be fun?!

KarenPNWChaser's picture

Brittain, well, we'll think of you and wish you were there! I'll be exhausted, but it'll be a blast! I'm like Gina and I usually get up very early (4am), so I'm going to be SOOO tired! But, well worth it! Will take lots of pictures!

ngj3's picture

I can't stay up that late anyway. My inner clock is hardwired to the early am thanks to work. Just look at it this way, we will get to read some great stories and see some awesome videos and peruse tons of photos! Something to look forward to!

KarenPNWChaser's picture

Brittain, are YOU going to NYE in Fresno? Kay, Beka, Beka's mom and I are all going! Meeting Jeanette! Would be a blast if you could come!

ngj3's picture

Sorry, Brittain! Just saw your post..... I would LOVE to go to NYE in Fresno. But I doubt I will be going unless my husband surprises me!

flyergirl97's picture

Brittain, Hopefully I'll have some more pics, as I just found out my neice want to go back AGAIN--Closing Night. You don't have to ask me twice. LOL Hopefully I'll some more good pics of Mike.

ngj3's picture

LOL You're on! ;-)

GML's picture

Hi Brittain! Glad the wedding went nicely! Family or friend?

I have no idea what they will send me! I'm pretty sure it will be SNC , so anything SNC will be very welcomed and appreciated, for SURE!!! (I still can't get confirmation that they've gotten my DM with my address! Otherwise, they won't be sending me anything!! Oh No!!!)

GML's picture

Hi Brittain! I'm doing well. How about yourself? How was the wedding?
I got my first tweet from an SNC member - Randy!! Did you see that I won something from the @THEDawgDay? I had to learn how to DM so I don't know if they got it yet, to send me whatever I won! I'm like a little kid - excited! Too funny!

GML's picture

Hiya Lady! Chatting tonight?

ngj3's picture

Hello again Miss Studious! That particular topic had been brewing for a bit before I decided to actually make it a thread. It originally started as a karaoke concept.....

Terry_4's picture

Thanks Brittain, I jumped on the Chaser Pre-Sale when they first made tickets available to us. We had front row seats for both nights that we were there. Quite an amazing time! Thanks!

ngj3's picture

Hey Brittain! (Great name btw! It's my second favorite country!) Glad you are entertained by my posts! It's helps to have others spur you on with like minded wit! I've been trying to think of another thread..... I may just have one...... ;-)

GML's picture

Hey lady!!
You had better not be on the SNC search for the next few hours, because you are suppose to be Chatting in a short while!!! (Tee hee) ;-)

EileenR's picture

Thanks for all the kind comments on my photos. I'm glad you're enjoying them!

xmanderrrrx's picture

Thanks Brittain!

GML's picture

Brittain,

Thank you so much for your kind Birthday wishes! You were the first one to wish me a happy day. That is very sweet of you!

I really like your new profile picture! Did you do something different with your hair? You look different. That color looks good on you too!

GML's picture

Hi Brittain! Yes, I'm trying! All the new fangled social networks...! I've tried three times to post this comment here!! I'm Gayle Lee on fb with birth date 8/3 and Angelchaser007 on twitter. I think I'm following you there!

So, how was camping? What happened to you last week in the Chat room? You were there and then you weren't!! Don't forget tonight!!

ngj3's picture

Thanks, Brittain!

ngj3's picture

Hi Brittain! Your first and my second! I'll be more than happy to help you celebrate! I will snag as many photos as I can for you!

Tic Tac Lady's picture

Hi Brittain! Yes, that's actually what I thought it said...AT FIRST GLANCE!! And yes, I had to do a double take...and I laughed myself..but thought I just had to share!! I think that's a question we'll all just have to wonder about.....^ ~ ^

I have been to Seattle/Tacoma area a few times...LOVED IT!! I was SO SURPRISED at how hilly it was the first time I went! So glad the hotel we stayed in (the round Westin..great location!!) was within walking distance of the Fish-Throwing Marketplace!!
The last time we went, it was recommended to go to "Leavenworth"..which we did! Wish we could have spent more time there! I just closed my eyes on the way back to Seattle...I'm not used to all the MOUNTAINS..give my my NICE FLAT CORNFIELDS of Indiana!
Anyway..great to *chat* and glad you got a good laugh!!!..and ADORABLE profile picture by the way!!!
..

KarenPNWChaser's picture

Trying to convince Gina from Portland (Hillsboro) to come up to the Seattle show...let's encourage her Chasers!!! She's already going to the Portland show!

GML's picture

To the proud Auntie of that sweet little "bundle of joy": I Love your new profile picture! How adorable! I'm so glad you posted it!

DottieK's picture

Love your new pic with your precious nephew! He couldn't' ask for a better Auntie!

GML's picture

Hi "Auntie Brittain"! What a fantastic report! It only gets better with time! They grow sooo fast! Have you seen Hayden, Charlie's baby? Already he is growing fast! I absolutely LOVED being a Aunt and I know you will too! Unlike a lot of people, I don't think we spoil each other ENOUGH!!! Have a blast with baby Conner. I know you will!!!

Happy 4th!

DaisyKary's picture

You're so welcome. I like to share my SNC experiences. I wish you coulda been there! This show is phenomenal!!!

GML's picture

Congratulations "Auntie Brittain"! How exciting! What a beautiful name ! Thanks for keeping me posted! Was she in labor long? Did she have him "naturally"? (whatever that means!) So how does it feel to have a little nephew and be an Auntie?
I wish, when my sisters had their babies, that I knew then what I know now!! I didn't realize, but found out that we are one of the few countries that do not (in my opinion) treat the mothers as they should be treated. The countries who seem to have it right completely take care of mother and baby for the first three months! Cooking, cleaning, laundry, etc.! All mom has to do is heal and bond with baby! Unfortunately we're not set up too much for that, and miss the boat there! (My sisters lived pretty far away, but I was able to be there for three months for one out of the three!) I'm sure you will be a wonderful Auntie and helpful sister! How close do they live? Or are they living at home? (I hope you don't mind my asking?!)
Such a miracle! Glad all are doing well! How is your mother taking to being a grandma?
Congrats again Brittain! Its a great time of year to celebrate birthdays! Continued prayers for all of you!!

GML's picture

Hi Brittain! How is your sister doing? When did baby arrive? Is it her first? How are you doing? Have you gotten any sleep? Prayers going out for ALL of you! Don't forget to take care of Brittain!!!

GML's picture

Hey lady! How are you doing? Are you coming to the chat room at 7:30 tonight to celebrate SNC's AC kick-off night? I hope to "see" you there!

Jennifer B's picture

Hi Brittain!
Yes, it is nice living so close to AC and being off in the Summer. I am very, very lucky. December 7th will be here before you know it. Your mom will LOVE them-I have no doubt. Anyone I have ever brought to a concert has become a fan. They are so great live. Good luck with your studies. If I can do anything to help you, just let me know ;)...I have taught all grade levels up through 8th grade. Good luck with everything!!

ChaserJulie's picture

I'll be seeing SNC on Monday!! Can't wait to see the AC show...2 months will be too long!

Hi!
I went to LaSalle University in Philadelphia, where you had to major in both elementary and special education and later got my Masters from Marygrove College. I did like teaching self contained a lot. It is nice to have your own classroom, with time to do projects and teach them all the subjects. Sometimes self contained classrooms become a dumping ground for behavior problems, so you need a lot of behavior plans in place. Good luck-there aren't many people who feel that calling-it takes a special person :)! I think you will love it and it will be rewarding to make a difference, even if you don't see it right away.

And yes..I plan to see SNC as much as I can. Atlantic City is pretty close, so I will there whenever I get the chance! I see you live far, are you making it out to any concerts?

Hi Brittain!
Thank you for the birthday wish! Very kind of you! :)
Cheers,
Alex

Jennifer B's picture

Hi there, Brittain!
Good luck to you! I also had a dual major in Elementary in Special Ed. The jobs were all in Special Ed, so I started there and never stopped. I have been doing it for over 10 years and still love it! I have taught all learning disabled children, from self contained classes to Resource Room, where kids are in regular classes, but come to me for Reading, Math, and Support. I love this because I get to go in the regular classes with them and work with other kids. I think you will love it!!! I don't know anyone who has become burnt out, and many have been doing it 25 plus years! (Summers off are a great benefit too!!) Let me know if you need any help or advice I teach in NJ. Take care!!!

ChaserJulie's picture

Oh Brittain. You're so clever. My birthday is a good news, bad news event. YAY it's my birthday and I'll be in Atlantic City to see SNC! And, oh, it's my birthday and I'm another year older.

racer8and9's picture

Brittain, I'm glad you had a chance to check out our blog! Did you read the whole thing? Sometimes I feel like we're just rambling, but everyone seems to enjoy it lol. It's our way of remembering our SNC adventures...kind of like a journal that we find pleasure in sharing with the Chasers! There would be too much SNC goodness rattling around in my brain if I didn't write it down somewhere.

Thanks for reading!
Megan
