Who I Am and Why I’m Here

It’s not as philosophical as it sounds. I don’t even know if I’ll be able to make this long enough to capture anyone’s attention. But I’ve got to start somewhere, right? You already know my name, so I won’t do that awkward song and dance. Instead, let me tell you what makes me me.

Who am I?

I’m a student at Oklahoma State University, majoring in English with a Pre-Law focus. I’m a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I’m the oldest of three kids. I’m a fan of video games and an amateur stargazer. I want to become an individual who has a hand in helping North Korean citizens have a life free from oppression. I want to write novels and shoot short films.

There’s a lot more to me than what I’ve written here, but these are the things I think about the most.

Why am I here?

I’ve been meaning to start a blog for a really long time, in the hopes I could eventually make a habit of writing and get that novel out like I’ve always wanted. Funny that I actually need a class to motivate me to make a blog. My Games and Writing class will make a frequent appearance on here, at least for three months. Hopefully I will take more time for myself so that I can also post articles on law, how it (and many other things) connect to religion, and what I do each day to step closer to my goals of becoming an expert in international refugee law (and an author).

If you’re reading this, hello! Hopefully you will stick around to see where I go with this, see if I actually do with my blog all I set out to do in the beginning. We can definitely make that journey together!
