Just a little over two years ago, I created this page as a means to immerse myself in the art of blogging (and, of course, to fulfill the new media requirements for an undergraduate journalism course). I had declared myself ‘truly novice blogger,’ expressing a distaste for the impending digital age, for the overtaking of gadgets and gizmos, for the loss of personal connection. I understood, however, that these changes were inevitable, that with the passing of time the virtual world would conquer all and that I would need to equip myself with ample knowledge to prepare for a new age in writing, in journalism, and the performance arts– for all the the fields I planned to pursue in life.
Fast forward to May 16, 2014. It’s over ninety degrees and I’m clad from head to toe in a cap, gown, heels and my lucky pearl earrings. I have a bouquet of sunflowers in one arm, my Master’s diploma tucked in the other, and I stop just for a moment under the burning hot sun to think about how far I’ve come.
I have indeed embarked on an extraordinary journey these last couple of years and hope to continue as I begin a new chapter in my life as a writer, a performer, an all around creative artist. This blog will serve as a place for my thoughts, my inspirations–the many words I may not always be brave enough to express out loud. Happy Reading…
