If you’ve been following my blog the past few months or if you’re new you may be wondering who exactly I am and why I am here.
In short, I’m a 21-year-old college student, wife, dog mom, and writer.
I am an English major, writer at my university newspaper, and the voice of this blog.
I started this blog as an outlet for writing and sharing some of my experiences, in hopes that they may help or inspire others. I have found that my early 20’s seem to be a season of discovery and exploration. I feel like I am growing into the person I am supposed to be and learning new things about life and relationships that could be useful to others in this turbulent time.
This past year of my life has been beautiful, tough, and profoundly changing. I got married, changed my major, suffered some really low points, and went through some things that ultimately altered me and taught me some vital life lessons; lessons that may be helpful to other people who are struggling, or who are growing into themselves as well. I don’t ever want to pretend that I am, or that my life is perfect, and that’s something I want to be open about on this blog.
I am from a very small town in Eastern Kentucky, where I grew up spending the majority of my time sitting on the front porch of my grandparent’s home or reading a good book.
Reading and writing have been my hobbies since I was a little girl, and I think the decision to become an English major (rather than an English-Ed major) was something I was always on the path to.
Some of my favorite books are Tess of the D’urbervilles, Gone With the Wind, and Wuthering Heights which serves as the inspiration for the name of this blog! I also enjoy authors such as Sylvia Plath, Gillian Flynn, and Margaret Atwood. I love mystery and thrillers, and the odd YA novel here and there. I hope to cover some book reviews in the future, as well as give some recommendations, check out my post What I’m Reading Right Now!
As I said before, I recently got married to my long-time boyfriend and high school sweetheart. If you haven’t already, check out my post that encapsulates all things marriage and wedding related at Our Wedding and Love Story[Video] My husband, Austin, and I live together in our cozy apartment with our two dogs Oliver and Cooper. We keep an interesting balance between married couple and college students that looks a lot like cooking dinners together, him juggling a part-time job, studying a lot, and walking dogs at odd times of the day and night together. We are busy with our crazy life, but I wouldn’t want it any other way.
On this blog, I share a little bit of my life, the things I have learned and am learning, my struggles, and hopefully some inspiration and fun.
In the future, you can expect to read about travel, book reviews, general life tips I have picked up the hard way, as well as some of my experiences.
I hope you enjoy reading!
