Meet Michaella!

Hello there!

I am currently a freshman learning to navigate my way through a Big Ten university. I am a psychology major and a Spanish minor. I am hoping to also minor in studio art in order to successfully complete my dream of becoming an art therapist. (Ever see 50 First Dates? When Drew Barrymore is in the hospital again and everyone is painting? That's art therapy in an easy, pop culture reference.)

I am involved in the psychology club, Best Buddies, swim club, FASE, Student Alumni Association, and IU Dance Marathon. Currently, I am enthralled to be on IUDM's Marketing committee, sub-co Event Documentation. Right now, I am training for the mini-marathon in May, being an ex-cross country runner. Recently, I became a member of Alpha Gamma Delta, so that makes me a baby squirrel. Also, I am a pledge of Alpha Phi Omega, a service fraternity here on campus. Last semester I volunteered a lot at the Midwest Pages to Prisoners Project here in Bloomington, and am hoping to do so more in the future. So that's a little bit about what I will probably be posting about on this dandy little blog.

A little bit about myself. I hail from Fishers, IN. In high school I ran cross country, track, and swam, plus being super involved in other things. I picked IU on a whim, and am more than enthralled to be here. I am a tumblr affiicionado, pintrest addict, and Hunger Games super-fan. (Not kidding, I pre-order Hunger Games inspired nail polish.) I love hoodies and old t-shirts. I am a book nerd in my free time. My favorite candy is all kinds, particularly Kit-Kats. I love Disney movies and Modern Family. Recently, I got into crafting stuff. I am very passionate about dumb things, like fun socks. I could live off of ice cream. I collect post cards. Carmel-apple suckers are my weakness, along with anything sweet. I have a foot tattoo commemorating my grandparents. Welp, that's all the random tidbits about myself that I can currently think about.

I'm on the left in the pink shorts!
