So what is a person to do when they are bedridden over a long weekend?
Start a new blog, of course.
After all, when you’re ankle is ice and elevated there is not much to do besides catch up on Game of Thrones and begin writing.
I have a blog under Google’s Blogger platform that I began in graduate school titled HESA Hero (in training). ‘HESA Hero’ was a phrase I coined because I love alliteration and was in the Higher Education & Student Affairs graduate program at IU. While there are some good posts over there (a blend of personal and professional), I feel like I require a fresh start now that I am entering my post-graduate career.
I read a lot of blogs (student affairs, feminism, social justice, etc) and have spent some time reflecting on what I want this blog to represent. Initially I contemplated focusing entirely on my profession (student affairs).
But ultimately, I am more than my job. I always love it when bloggers focus on the personal as well as professional…and many times going through grad school I wrestled with questions that I didn’t see other bloggers in the field discussing. So this blog will include multiple topics related to the lifestyle of a student affairs professional – with an emphasis on life, humor, and passion.
And gifs. Many gifs.

- Higher Education & Student Affairs
- Dating & Relationships

- Life as a Twentysomething (until next May when I turn 30!)
