New experiences

How did I become a blogger? I honestly have no idea, until I remembered: I’m in college, that’s how.

I am a sophomore student here at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point after being here for less than a year and a half, I have tried and experienced more new things than I ever have before, so I decided to add blogging to that list.

I am from Lake in the Hills, Illinois, (a town most people have never heard of) so I chose to say I’m from the Chicago suburbs because it is just easier and sounds neat. It’s not a small town though, I attended Huntley High School with a graduating class around 630 students!


Graduation: May 2014

My current major is communicative sciences and disorders (CSD), but being the indecisive person that I am, I am considering changing it to health promotion/wellness (HP/W). What I have learned in my CSD classes have already shaped me and taught me aspects about hearing and speech that I never knew existed, but as I go through college I grow each day and I get one step closer to finding out what career will really suit me best. I am excited to change my major and start a new learning path.

One thing I am sure on is my minor is Spanish. I have been taking Spanish classes since I can remember and it is something I enjoy. With the credits I earned in high school, I will finish my minor by the end of my junior year.

Now considering this is only my introduction and first post, after writing this I am much more excited and confident to share my ideas and stories about my life as a UW-Stevens Point Pointer.
