Hi, I’m Alexis!

I’m an 18 year old from San Bernardino, California and I’m currently a first year at the University of California-San Diego (UCSD). [For those of you who are familiar with how UCSD’s college system works, I’m a Muiron!] I am currently working towards a degree in Literature and I will most likely pick up a degree in Political Science as well.

Why I Started Blogging

I started this blog in early January of 2017 because I have always had an interest in writing, but I have never really had the confidence to really put myself out there. Plus, coming up with a topic that I won’t get bored of is extremely difficult. I’m being totally honest here, this is a complete leap of faith for me.

However, I decided to stick with college as my main focus. I’m hoping that this will actually turn out well because being a first generation college freshman is hard, and I have so much to say about college in general. This transition is huge and I’ve already made so many memories that I would like to share with you all. Additionally, this will be a really cute way to document my entire college experience, so stay tuned to get a taste of what it’s like.

Fun Facts

  • I’m an INFP- I’m an idealist, I’m an optimist and I always look for the good in others even when something goes wrong. I’m also shy and often misunderstood (probably because I have so many ideas that they get jumbled up).
  • My favorite book of all time is 1984 by George Orwell.
  • I dabble in the visual arts from time to time. Normally I just doodle in my sketchbook or take some cool photos.
  • I’m not really big on coffee (college student stereotype broken!).
