So I guess I’m becoming one of those people that blog now. I couldn’t help but feel it was necessary to document my glorious semester in Rome. I am a Program of Liberal Studies major at the University of Notre Dame, which means I read books and ponder the meaning of life most of the day. I enjoy writing, quoting Seinfeld, the smell of new books, New York City, my stuffed giraffe, Pat Conroy, shopping for clothes I don’t necessarily need, eating, and sarcasm. I write for Crushable and previously wrote and edited for Next Gen Journal, The Grindstone and The Observer. The ultimate dream is to write a novel that doesn’t suck. Until then, follow me on Twitter @kelseyMmanning.
