I *Finally* wrote an "About Me" Post


Hi :)

Welcome to my blog! I am a 22 year old girl who is completely obsessed with YA literature. I started this blog in June 2011, in an attempt to bring attention to awesome books and make friends who share the same love of reading that I do. I've only been at this for a few months, but so far I'm having a blast!

When I'm not reading, I'm busy working my butt off in graduate school. I will be graduating in May 2013 with a Master of Science in Speech Pathology. I. CANT. WAIT. I have always wanted to help people and have a challenging profession, so speech path was the perfect choice for me. I am either hoping to work with people who have suffered from Traumatic Brain Injuries (TMI) or with children who have impairments related to language and literacy. I've already spent time doing literacy intervention with clients, and I LOVE it. There is nothing like seeing a reluctant reader find a book that he or she is actually EXCITED and WILLING to read! 

When I'm not reading OR working, I enjoy spending time with my boyfriend and the rest of my family. I have a squirrel obsessed rat terrier named Katie and an unrealistic desire to have a pet velociraptor.

I'm always looking for more people to interact with in the blogging community, so feel free to leave a comment or look for me on twitter!

  1. That's so awesome that you are going to school for that. After being hurt in Iraq my brother has TMI but a mild case and has to see the doctor every month. so I know first hand there are people out there who are going to really appreciate what you are going to school for. :)

  2. What kind of challenges is your brother having with his TBi? War injuries are becoming the #1 cause of TBI :( Thank you for your supportive comment! I love the idea of helping people regain life skills, whether they be organizational, language, balancing a checkbook, or anything else. I hope your brother has a speedy recovery.
