As I was reading Shanna's wildcard blog, it inspired me to write a blog about myself also. I am 24 yr's old, born and raised in Connellsville. I have 2 older brothers, one lives here as well...the other, a make-up artist at Bloomingdales in Manhattan. I have an Elementary Ed. degree and am currently substitute teaching for Connellsville and Southmoreland School Districts. I am attending Seton Hill to get my Art Ed. certification...art is my passion.
I am into astrology (It must be a Scorpio thing Shanna) and I LOVELOVELOVE to dance. I enjoy meditating to relax myself because I am like one big stressball all the time. The winter time is my time to go snowboarding (only when it's not too cold. I hate the winter). My favorite place to go is the beach. My dream is to one day own a beach house with big picture windows, so I can sit and gaze out at the ocean while I paint. Also, since I am a prospective teacher I will have my entire summer to lie on the beach and chill!

Yeah!!! What types of dancing do you like? I enjoy all kinds of dancing. When I see dancing in the midst, I always find myself in awe over the skillful movement. I always wish I were that person dancing so well. I am so busy with classwork and just life in general to take classes, and to become a skillful dancer. I must find time though. If and when you have time, I would really like to talk to you about your ideas and thoughts about art ed.

There are lots of Scorpios in this class...when is your birthday?

All the art majors make me want to be a more creative Katie; however, I am not able to make beautiful anythings from any medium. Now, I am inspired to write poetry - but it pretty much is not so good, at all.

I hate the winter, too and want to spend as much time as possible on the beach in the sun. Do you think English and Art degrees lead to that time of relaxation later in life?

Thank you for commenting on "The Raven." I am still thinking about this poem and how meaning really changes everyday because everyday you are looking through new lenses.
