A little bit about me

Welcome! This is not my first blog but it is my first WordPress account so please stay with me as I figure things out…

I am a student at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC). I decided to build a new blog as an online portfolio since I’m a communication student and part of my education is writing and online media.

My goal for this blog is to share tid bits about my life and what I do as far as education, my internship, and my hobbies.

From the time I was four until I turned 18, I danced. Although I retired, as I call it, during my senior year of high school, dance will always be a part of me. I can’t sit still, so to stay in shape I started running per the influence of my boyfriend at the time, who I am still in a relationship with. The more I ran, the more I wanted to run, and I ended up going out for the track team at UIC my freshman year. We had a good two years but as I progressed in my studies, I needed to get more serious in preparation for graduation next year in May 2014. However, I still run, which I’m sure will have a part in this blog as I prepare for local road races.

Other great influences in my life aside from family and friends is dogs. My family has two Shih-Tzus, whom I love, and when I moved to my own apartment downtown I bought a Miniature Schnauzer puppy.

I also love to do crafts and I get many of my ideas from Pinterest. I also love books but I lack the time to read.

Those are the main topics that I will be blogging about, so if I still have your interest, I hope you enjoy my writing!
