General Statement About Myself:
I’m a Journalism and Public Relations major, with a minor in Spanish and Apparel Merchandising. I'm from Mason, OH. I’m also a follower of Jesus Christ, and most of the time I really suck at it, but the great part about it is that He’s already forgiven me and I grown a little bit each day. It’s the most awesome relationship I have! I'm involved with a couple different student organizations: Cru, PRSSA, Media Scholars. I have a truly amazing family and some great friends who have stuck with me through a lot of ranting and raving. I’ve recently gotten into cooking because I have Pinterest and it makes me believe that I can repaint furniture, make complicated recipes, and sew . . . Even though I can’t do any of that.
 
 I’m trying to figure out college life even though I’ve been here for a while. I’ve decided to stop being a cynical grumpy-pants and start looking for the good things in life. I have some great friends and time to really enjoy Bloomington and IU. I don’t promise to always be positive, but I do promise to try really hard! I want to take advantage of great food, free exercise classes (those have to go together), people to meet, and events that happen almost constantly. I hope in the process of me figuring it out, you might get a little taste of how awesome life can be here if you just go for it without expectations.
