Hi, I'm Marissa.
I'm 23, currently working to live/pay off student loans/eat delicious food.
This is going to become the About page of the site, with modifications, I'm sure.
I am a college graduate with a degree in Liberal Arts, concentration in Humanities and Social Thought, focus in Literature, minor in French.
I have a cat, Éowyn, who is really mean to me in general and doesn't let me pet her, but is really cute when she wants to be.
I have a dog, Bentley, that my boyfriend and I rescued from a shelter. He is super cute, and is slowly growing on me.
I have a boyfriend, Casey. He's pretty cool.
I have a mom, dad, and three siblings, one younger sister and two younger brothers.
I love cats (I'm definitely a cat person), I'm obsessed with food, I think that textile art is the best kind of art (especially crocheting, knitting, quilting, weaving and spinning), I adore the novels/mind of Louise Erdrich, and my family and friends are what keep me happy.
I love to read, I'm interested in clothing and makeup as much as I can afford to be, and if I could own as many pairs of shoes as I want they wouldn't fit into my closet.
I want to learn how to: speak French fluently, weave, spin, promote feminism, be more kind, run an educational program (for kids or adults, the topic is flexible), do more good in my community, cook, bake, sled, camp, take portraits, decorate my home, and more.
The purpose of this blog is to give myself a creative outlet where I can express my opinion and practice writing to an audience without feeling self conscious about my opinions. So exciting, I know!
I'm not sure the frequency with which I will post, I'm new to this so I will be learning as I go. I'm hoping to do at least one post a week, though.
You can also find me on Tumblr, Pinterest, and Instagram, by clicking on the Other Social Media tab in the site navigation.
I hope you'll visit again soon!
Opinions, product reviews, craft projects and other various interests I want to share with the world.
