Hey everyone, my name is Erin and welcome to Living Erin :)
Just a little background on me…I am from Ohio (Go Bucks!) and I am currently a 5th year undergrad at Ohio University (Go Bobcats!) and I will graduate this spring with a degree in Event Planning and a certificate in Entrepreneurship (Quick update, I did it! I graduated!!). Now, this isn’t my exact degree title but it is kind of complicated so this is a simplified version. And before you ask, no - I have no idea what I am doing after school…that’s a whole post on its own. I am currently 23 and that is just crazy to think about…wow. I am also an intern for my university Athletic Marketing and Sales Department (Yay sports!) I love animals, wine, sports, antiques, the color pink, exploring, events, and other random things here and there. I’m all over the place, it’s fine.
This is me and my buddy, Toby
So, why a blog? I have wanted to start one for a while because I love to write but I have always been scared to put myself out there. What if people make fun of me? What if people don’t read it? Literally every scary question has been going through my head. But, I decided..who cares??? Also, I couldn't figure out what type of content I would create. I thought that it needed to be specific to one thing..you know..beauty or cooking or DIY, etc… but I decided that I am going to make my own rules. I have been reading some marketing books lately and they have been a big motivating factor for me to do this. I also just think this would be a great outlet for me and I think a lot of people could relate to some of the things I will talk about, or not, it’s fine (Grey's Anatomy is my favorite show, if you can’t tell).
So, what is this blog about? Everything. If I am inspired to write about it, I’m going to. And something to note, this isn’t going to be a blog filled with “how to…” type of content. It’s going to be journal style, reviews, some “how to”, my experiences...It could be about my experience with anxiety, it could be about school, career searching (which will move into just “career” once I get into a job), food, movies/TV, rants… LIFE. I am also not going to have a posting schedule to begin with. Like I said, I am a college student…I am busy. I also don’t want this to feel like school or a job, I don’t want to have a deadline and force content out because I HAVE to, you know? I’ll shoot for twice a month, but it could be more or less…who knows really. Another thing to note, the grammar isn’t going to be perfect…okay?
Well, I think I have said everything I need to for the first post. I hope you’re into it and I see you here again sometime. But if not, thanks for reading this one!
P.S. Meredith and Christina say “I'm fine” a billion times throughout Grey’s Anatomy if you didn’t catch that reference :)
