About Me-chelle

I’m currently a senior at the University of Michigan-Dearborn. I major in English, minor in Journalism, and contribute to the student publication, Lyceum: Literary and Fine Arts journal.

I like long walks on the beach, cozying next to a fireplace with a good book, and other cliché things. Since I don’t live near a beach or own a fireplace, I end up daydreaming most of the time. I suppose that’s what describes me best. I am a dreamer, but I’ve found that living in my head can be very isolating and passive. That’s why I want to share stories with you! Writing is a way to make dreams manifest; they have the power to change minds, moods, and attitudes.

This will be my first attempt at a real blog. It feels right since I spend most of my free time online anyway- usually to look at cat videos on Facebook. I have a feeling it will be quite strange to do something productive while browsing the internet.

A few years ago I wanted to be a nun. Like, full-blown habit and giant rosary, locked in a convent, nun. I thought that was what I wanted for three years and worked really hard to achieve that goal. But in 2014, it was as if God was saying, “Michelle…what are you thinking? You’re too much of a heathen to be here.” Or perhaps I realized how much I like gay culture and alcohol. Anyway, I turned my eye to the career that all heathens pursue: Writing.

Where exactly do I want to write after I graduate? There is no exact answer. I’m open to whatever comes my way.
