Hello and goodbye - all in one!
So this is the mandatory introduction. You always need something like this whether it’s in an essay or at a job interview, so why not make it formal on my blog, too?
My name is Lara Heinz. No, I’m not related to the condiment franchise (though I always get extra pickle pins at the House of Heinz in Grove City!). I’m working toward my BFA in Graphic Design and BS in Marketing, and I just finished up my first year at Seton Hill. The year went by super fast, but I loved every minute of it! My hometown—Austinburg, Ohio—is about 3 hours away, which was close enough that I made it home when I needed to but far enough that my parents weren’t finding reasons to visit me every weekend. I’m pretty active on campus; I am a Student Ambassador, on the Eye Contact staff, a SHGA Senator, the SAAC treasurer, and I run cross country and track. In addition (to too much already!), I’m going to be a Resident Teaching Assistant (RTA) for the freshmen in Havey Hall next year
That’s really probably MORE than you want/need to know, but it will at least give you some background when you read some of my entries and wonder what I’m talking about. Or if you have any questions about any of those clubs/activities/programs/whatever, feel free to contact me because I would LOVE to answer prospective students’ questions (sounds lame but I’m really that excited about talking to prospective SHU students!).
Also, I’ll be studying abroad from May 22 - June 28 in Barcelona, Spain and I will be updating this from abroad! It’s awesome what we can do with technology The plan is to put up photos and updates from my trip while I’m there, so you all can feel like you’re there, too (okay, okay, that’s pushing it). This is my first time abroad so it will all be new to me and hopefully my story might inspire some of you to go abroad, too, if you haven’t already!
On that note, I really should stop procrastinating and start packing. Wish me luck!

How exciting!! I look forward to your updates and photos as I will travel with you "vicariously"! ~ That might be the best I get to a vacation this year! Have fun!
