From blogging and developing written content for university mailings to reminding people they used the incorrect form of "your," writing has always been a passion of mine. I have a love for religion, so you'll find my personal blog littered with a whole mess of religious stuff. If that's not your thing, you probably won't care to read it. That's okay. I just channel my opinions there instead of aggressively through Facebook or YouTube comments (although YouTube commenters are among the highest caliber of people in the world with an exquisite ability of turning the English language into a smoldering trash heap... Which I love).
RESEARCH & CASE STUDIES
Being a grad student (in communications, no less) means research, case studies, works cited, and lots of words. I found the classes became much more enjoyable when I chose to focus on subjects and topics that interest me. My Catholic faith has instilled in me a passion for women's (esp. "reproductive") health—a recurring theme throughout the work I've done in my graduate program (Journalism & Mass Communications, Integrated Media Communications).
