I have this grand notion. You see, I think of myself as an artist. Not the kind whose heart bleeds out onto the canvas, but instead the page. I enjoy painting and creating with my words. Taking these 26 magical l e t t e r s and transforming them over and over again to create something new. The letters are my oils and pastels, this blog my canvas, the internet my gallery, and you are my guest. I am inviting into my small world hoping to give you a glimpse of what goes on under these curls. Here you will find stories of my life, advice, anecdotal tales, and the occasional poem.
When I first started this blog I was a 22 year old college student a semester away from graduating and didn't hit publish until over a year later. (Anyone else know about that last semester grind?) I graduated with a degree in Nutrition and Food Systems, and the realization that I did not want to work in the field I had spent countless hours of my life studying. (Yeah internet friends- that stings!) My plans were flushed down the toilet in one semester. Flash forward to today I am 23, live in New York, and still have no idea what I am doing #yas. What I do know, is that I have a passion for writing, and I am not quite sure where it will take me. As I try to come to grips with all of this I am taking the advice of my father.
“The difference between where you end up in life and where everyone else ends up is not wealth or status. It is what you do with the opportunities given to you.” Basically his way of saying, you better figure it out kid just like every body else (Thanks Dad). As I write I will be sharing pieces of myself, the people who help create my world, and give it meaning. There is nothing I love more than sitting around with a bunch of friends enjoying a great home cooked meal and better stories. So grab a cup of coffee and join me Around My Table.
