I’m a 25-year-old writer trying to find my way around in the real world. I earned a degree in English Writing from Illinois Wesleyan University in 2012. I’ve started this blog in an effort to keep myself motivated and writing as often as possible. Whether it takes 10 minutes or 10 hours, I’m going to write something, delete it, write something again, and hopefully post it here.
Here’s what you need to know about me: I love comedy, sitcoms (New Girl, HIMYM, Parks & Rec, etc), summer, traveling, physical copies of CDs, laughing, making people laugh, a good cry, Tumblr, poetry, cats, photographing my family/friends/surroundings, Chicago, NYC, and Australia. I’m a total sap/hopeless romantic. I find inspiration in people like Grace Helbig, Kristen Wiig, John Green, Kristen Stewart, and many others (i.e. professors, classmates, friends). In the last couple of years, I’ve discovered that I really enjoy Victorian literature (thanks, IWU!), Dante’s Inferno (thanks, Senior Sem!), and comedic poetry (thanks, Theune!).
In 2014, I wrapped up an awesome internship with The Everygirl, where I had the opportunity to interview some inspiring women, share my favorite music, and edit tons of content. I’m trying to get back into the swing of writing, so stay tuned and patient (if you’re good at that, kudos).
I’ll do my best to make you smile, think, laugh, and cry.
