Hi readers!

My name is Mary Helen Kelly, and I am a sophomore at Furman University. I’m 19 years old, I have dirty blonde hair, and I have blue eyes… very basic, if you will. But there’s more to me than meets the eye.

I have created this blog as a space to showcase my work for my Digital Communications class as a part of my Communications Studies degree. Before you check out the rest of my site, here is a little more info about me and what you can expect from me! 

People see me as an organized overachiever, which often times I can be, but in reality there are two sides to me that you should know as you read my blog.

about me

As I was thinking about what I wanted my readers to know literally ABOUT ME, I decided to go with the old saying, “A picture is worth a thousand words.” These two photos are my life: one side is crazy, fun, just want to hang out and chat attitude, sometimes unprepared, and unbalanced (with only half my peace sign even making it in the selfie) AND the other is organized, put-together, composed, and ready to take on the world and anything that comes my way girl.

The ultimate struggle for me is balancing these two. Do I want to spend all day hanging out with my friends and relaxing, or do I want to get to James B. Duke Library to crank out my work? I have to be intentional in my school work, my personal life, and my every day decisions that one side doesn’t get the best of me.

So as you read my blog and view my content, here are a few things to keep in mind:

  1. Who knows what kind of day I had when I was working… could have been either way and who knows how it went (#fingerscrossed, it went well!).
  2. As I try to balance both sides of myself in my life, I also try to do so in my writing, but sometimes funny and easy-going while at the same time academic and focused is hard to accomplish! I’m still #working on it.
  3. I try to #enjoy all my posts. Even when they seem tedious, I want them to be the best they can be (my overachiever side shining through). I appreciate comments and suggestions for what can be done to improve my work, so feel free to let me know what you as a reader think!
