Life As I See It

“I Am” (Inspired by Coming Up Roses)

August 2, 2014

I have been running a little low on inspiration for posts besides my weekly topics. However, when I saw Coming Up Roses “I Am” post, it was like a lightbulb went off in my head. I saw this post a few weeks ago and since then I have been mentally forming a list of things I can write about. At one point I had over 30 ideas. It began to feel excessive. I had to parse it down. So, after weeks of thinking about it and my growing excitement over this post, here is who I am.

  • The youngest of three and an aunt to six amazing nieces and nephews
  • An amateur blogger with an overflow of ideas and no clue what to do with them
  • A mac enthusiast who is a little too plugged in sometimes
  • A college senior with major anxiety and excitement about entering the real world of teaching elementary school
  • A speed reader who doesn’t utilize this skill enough for books I want to read (not school required texts!)
  • An avid tennis player who still prefers singles over doubles (even after a whole summer of playing in doubles tournaments and doing well)
  • Someone whose favorite seasons are in a constant battle between fall and summer (have you seen the color of leaves in New England in the fall?)
  • A closeted girly girl who every so often loves to paint her nails pink and wear dresses
  • A terrible flyer who loves exploring the world
  • Obsessed with my Nikon and taking pictures of anything and everything

Who are you?

    EMILY! Thank you so much for posting your own I AM. I love it.
    When in doubt of what to write, just brainstorm openly and let your words come and flow as they may. Sooner or later, you’ll have a blog post or two and a million more ideas!
    Bring on the nail polish and dresses.
