I’m so glad you took the time to read through my blog. Seeing as how you are on this particular page, I assume you would like to know more about me. I’ve never been good at talking about myself in a formal setting and prefer to “show” what I am all about by putting up pictures and writing about daily events and my hobbies. However, writing so openly about myself and what I am about makes me feel like I am on a date (which I am horrible at) You know what I mean right?!?! The awkward “So tell me more about yourself?” and then you either draw a blank, ramble about something that makes no sense or you just end up sounding self centered because you can’t seem to shut up! Yeah, that’s how I feel.
But what the heck! I’ll give it a shot. So here goes nothin
I’m a twenty something college student, double majoring in Political Science and International Relations with a double minor in Women Studies and Middle Eastern Islamic Studies (Whew, that was a mouth full) Needless to say, I will be in school for the rest of my life. I’m really into volunteer work and activism. Equal rights and opportunities are my main goal & yes! I am a feminist.
Now, feminists get a bad rep for being “man hating, unsatisfied lesbians.” I’ll most definitely be writing a lot about the this subject at some point to debunk that common assumption. The main thing to know about feminists is that though we have the same goal (equality for all), we do not agree on all of the same subjects or have the same view on certain topics. For example Playboy. Some feminists would say it is a way to express one’s sexuality without shame, others would say it is the objectification of women. Sticky situations, these issues.
Now I have blogged on and off over the years, but took a break do to my hectic schedule with school. So I decided to start this one as a new slate. I look forward to gaining new readers and starting new connections with fellow bloggers.
What else..what else?? hmmm. Oh, I really enjoy reading. Seriously, I could read a novel a day. I prefer classic, controversial novels for the most part. I have an insane mix of music, you can literally find every genre of music (except screamo) in my iPod. I’m obsessed with art, photography, cooking, baking, road trips and mini adventures. That’s pretty much all I got, but feel free to email me any questions you have or just comment. I absolutely love reading all comments that my readers leave me.
