Okay so I only decided to do this like three days ago but IT’S BLOGMAS TIME AND I’M PUMPED! I’ve been chatting with a few of my blogging friends all week and I’m super excited to be doing this with them. I’ll add some of their links at the bottom of this post if you want to follow along!
If you haven’t heard of Blogmas before, it runs from December 1st to 25th and everyone participating is supposed to post every day. Given that finals start next week and I’ll be camping in the middle of nowhere mid-December, I’ve decided to do a modified Blogmas of posting every other day #slacker. That’s still way more content than I’ve gotten up all semester, so be ready to see a lot more of me in your feeds if you’re following my blog (shameless plug in the spirit of Christmas – instagram / twitter). I wanted to take this first day to introduce myself and the blog for all my new readers coming here thanks to Blogmas, and just give a general life update for my longtime followers!
So I’m Jessica, and I’ve been blogging for about three years now on college life and blogging tips! I’m a third-year student at the University of Texas at Austin studying Computer Engineering, and my goal is to become a Technical Program Manager or Software Developer at a company that’s truly changing the world. I love drinking multiple cups of iced coffee, exploring new cities with a camera in hand, and trying out every dessert place in Austin. I also place a lot of importance on keeping my body clean inside and out, so I do my best to use natural products and eat a whole foods diet as often as I can. If you have any questions about my college experience or just want to say hi, my inbox is always open!
This blog is mainly focused on college life, healthy living, and the occasional blogging tutorial, but my purpose in choosing my own name as its title was to give myself the freedom to post about whatever I feel. I like to think that I’m pretty transparent in what I write, meaning I won’t post about products I don’t actually use or pretend to be someone I’m not. I always gravitate towards reading transparent blogs, so I want to be sure I’m giving my readers that same experience!
With that said, I can’t wait to get Blogmas started and I hope y’all enjoy reading along! I don’t have a solid plan of what I’m going to post and when yet, but I’m definitely planning on doing a winter apartment tour, a Secret Santa reveal, some winter-themed DIYs, and a camping trip recap! If there’s something you’ve been wanting to see, now’s the time to let me know in the comments!
