Being a college student at a large, urban university, the quick introductory questions that people ask upon meeting you are usually: name, year, major, hometown, and sometimes the awkward, “So you are single…?” So for sake of habit, here it goes:
I’m currently in my fourth (and final… eek!) year at the University of Southern California, as I pursue a dual degree in Political Science and Policy, Planning, and Development. I was born and raised in the cute and quaint town of Campbell, California, and although I love L.A., the San Francisco bay will always be home. Regarding my relationship status? I’m going to do what I do in almost every awkward situation I find myself in: quote SNL. In the words of Tina Fey, “You do you.” So, that’s what I’m doing. I’m striving to live my life with meaning and with purpose, and to do it for me and my own personal fulfillment. Not always the easiest thing in the world, but if it was easy, it wouldn’t be worth it.
So what does a blog have to do with all of this? Thinking back on my life, I can’t think of a single time when I was truly at a loss for words–or thoughts for that matter. I was nicknamed “Babbling Brooke” when I was about four, and I’ve finally decided that it’s time to stop babbling and to start typing! Everyday I am inspired by life and the amazing treasures that lie before me: people, relationships, this amazing university and city, and the countless and priceless experiences that I am blessed with every, single day. It’s my hope that I can share these insights with all of you in chance of inspiring new thoughts with a little bit of unplanned, yet absolutely welcomed entertainment thrown in. What about a 21 year old’s struggle through life as a poor college student isn’t worth making fun of? Exactly.
I hope you enjoy reading about the crazy and amazing events that manage to make up my life, and all of my thoughts along the way. Please feel free to leave comments or to contact me (see below) with any of your thoughts; I’m always open to your ideas and opinions. We’re all a constant work in progress.
Keep doing you, whatever that may be.
