Hello to all,
This is Kaylee writing. And this, of course, is my blog. First off, I think a welcome is in order! Thanks for checking it out. I hope you dig it.
Ok, so what is this whole concept of "the patchwork?" Well, community is a pretty critical component of life, whether it be our community here at IU, in Indiana, in the USA or even the global community. We all bring our own unique square, circle, or do-decagon to the community, or in other words, the quilt. We are empowered as both part of the patchwork and as an individual patch in our own right. That my friends, is the beauty of it.
Do more. Be more. Love more. Give more.
And as for me?
I hail from Indy, the north suburbs. My town is called Westfield, affectionately shortened in this blog to "the Field." I am a freshman this year, studying environmental management in the School of Public and Environmental Affairs (SPEA), as well as Spanish. When I step back from all of that, at my essence I am a very outgoing person. My friends insist that it is impossible for me to get embarrassed (not quite true). I am a definite people person, and I'm pretty fond of animals as well.
Back in the Field, I live with my parents, younger brother, three dogs and a 20-pound cat, Oliver. Here in Bloomington, I am actively involved in Amnesty International at IU, serving as secretary, as well as Jubilee college ministries, a college/young adult group that focuses on community at many levels. Some of my many interests include Phineas and Ferb, dessert, movies, the great outdoors and, most of all, dinosaurs.
Chao for now.
