Hello world!

Hello!

I’m taking the plunge! This marks my foray into blogging and I am so excited to embark upon this journey! While I did dabble in the world of xanga and live journal when I was younger, I wanted something more mature. So, I have started this blog as a way for you to have a glimpse into my life and personality.

In order to further enhance my web development skills, I have chosen wordpress. That way, I can learn how to use it both as a blogging platform and as a CMS (content management system). Eventually, I hope to become adept at creating custom themes.

Ok, a little bit about me… I grew up in Maryland with my sister who is 4 years younger than me and attended Jewish summer camp for as long as I can remember. I started at Beth Tfiloh day camp when I was 5 years old, and at age 10, for 6 amazing summers, I went to Blue Star (a sleep-away camp in North Carolina).

I went to public school until I started at an all-girls private school in 7th grade and continued on to Muhlenberg, a wonderful small liberal arts college in Pennsylvania.

At Muhlenberg, I was an active member of my sorority – Phi Mu, as well as the Soul Sound Steppers and MC KnitWits (the knitting club – dorky, I know). My junior year, I studied abroad in the south of France (Aix-en-Provence) and had the most amazing host family! I graduated with a degree in Media & Communication and a minor in French and now work at Innovative Party Planners, a boutique event planning and décor studio.

I am also a part-time student at the University of Baltimore, working towards a Certificate in New Media Publishing through the School of Information, Arts, & Technologies. My courses have peaked my interest in website development, hence the start of my own website and blog.

One day in the future, I would like to own my own business designing and developing websites. But for now, I will continue to explore and learn until I get there.

So, that’s me in a nutshell… stay tuned as I write about the joys, passions, struggles and challenges of a 20-something Jewish gal in today’s world. Your feedback and comments are appreciated and encouraged.
