Hey everyone! My name is Kim. I am currently a sophomore working towards a nursing degree. I am not a very experienced blogger, only making one blog my whole life with about 10 posts. I work part- time in a grocery store called Wegmans; therefore if I were to make blogs I would like to write about trying new healthy foods. I am always keeping an eye out on popular new products customers are purchasing.
Here’s a link to a blog I started in the past and wish to continue to work on:
From this class, I wish to learn more about how to make a blog look professional. I only know the very basics about blogging, such as making a post, adding a video, and adding a picture. In addition, I want to learn about all the features wordpress has to offer for making a blog. As a nursing major, I do not get many chances to take a class that allows me to demonstrate my creative side and talk about subjects not related to science or nursing, but is still important to me. I believe that reading blogs is a great way to keep up-to-date or see a different perspective on various subjects including, politics, movies, restaurants, etc. Furthermore, I noticed that blogs are not like a formal essay or research article. Blogging allows more freedom of expression. A blogger can definitely develop a unique voice on a certain topic.
Another fact about me is that I am a commuter. I take the train to school every day and I do not mind. The train is a great place to study and less stressful than driving. Rush hour in the New Brunswick can be a nightmare!
Some hobbies I enjoy include reading a suspenseful novel and watching various TV shows/movies on Netflix. I am a big fan of Game of thrones and An American Horror Story. Some of my all time favorite movies include Forrest Gump, Gladiator, and Saving Private Ryan.
I do not spend all my time on the computer or being a book worm as what my parents think. I am actually quite an active person as well. Growing up, I played a lot of tennis with my family. In high school, I even played on the girls varsity tennis team. Furthermore, I like to rollerblade in the streets, even though people think it’s a very 90’s thing to do.
In addition, I do not travel much. Actually, I have never been out of the country. When I do have a chance, I would like to visit Hong Kong and Australia. However, I have lived in other states. I lived in Rhode Island and Ohio. Out of the three states I’ve lived in so far, I enjoy New Jersey the best because it’s close to two big cities. In addition, there are plenty of nice beaches here. In Ohio, there was just a gigantic lake… haha
Also, I am a big animal lover. I took riding lessons when I was younger and rode on a pony named peanut. Peanut was afraid of rocks and one time, she walked off the trail path because it was covered with pebbles and I got a face full of branches! One of my dreams is to eventually own a dog, preferably a border collie. I can look at puppy videos on youtube all day.
