For those of you who know me, I invite you to join me on this journey of blogging, and for those of you who do not know me- I'll provide a brief intro. I am a Research and Teaching assistant, pursuing a Master of Arts in Communication at a mid-size university in the middle of the United States. My academic interests include religious and organizational communication, sociolinguistics, semiotics, and rhetoric. Outside of graduate school, I enjoy photography, travel, reading, and fashion. I love Jesus, my family (Mom, Dad, and my 3 brothers- and all of my extended family), and my friends. I speak English, and Spanish, and I used to know a good amount of French- but I regret to say that a lot of it has escaped me. Other random things about me include... I like to swim, I love going to Starbucks with friends, I want to be a professor, and I secretly enjoy rainy days almost as much as sunny days.
