About me

img_2420
After ending my 12 year volleyball career, 4 of those years in which I played at TCU, I struggled a bit finding a new identity.  While I never felt like I was defined by volleyball, it took up about 40 hours of my week. When people asked my hobbies or what I do with my free time, my answer for the last 12 years was “volleyball.”  So once that was gone, I didn’t really know where I wanted to dedicate my time anymore.

After about a month into volleyball retirement, I found a passion for writing. Not only does writing act as an outlet for me when I’m upset, but it is something I can get lost in for hours. I love spilling my thoughts onto a word document as soon as they come to me, and then reviewing and editing theTCU_OU_VB_2633.jpgm until they sound coherent.  I’ve even been known to edit my friends’ papers for them, not because I want something in return, but because I just enjoy doing it.

In addition to writing, I’ve always had a passion for social media. Instead of just living in the moment, I’m normally documenting it. Sometimes I wish that wasn’t the case, but I also don’t see it as a negative… It’s just how I am.  I’ll never understand someone who accidentally leaves their phone at home and realizes it hours after the fact. I notice after my phone is missing for 5 seconds. I’m guilty of having to charge my phone multiple times a day, and refreshing Twitter multiple times before a new post comes up. I love how I can be in my room by myself, but if I watch my friend’s Snapchat Story, I feel connected to her, despite being thousands of miles away. I think social media has a lot of negatives, but the positives greatly outweigh those.

Combining my love for writing and social media is what led to this blog. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I loved creating it.
