This is me

Now that you know that much about me (and I’ve already put myself in a box), let me introduce myself. I’m Lauren Eissler (nice to meet you, reader!), and I’m a junior journalism major at Cedarville University. But that’s just part of my life. Journalism is a big part because of my classes and my job at the student paper, Cedars, but that’s not all there is to me. I love telling stories – either my own or others’ through journalism. Through this blog, I will be telling my stories. Part of that will be about my journalism experiences, but other parts might come through cooking or reading books.

Here’s a sampling of what I’ll be writing about:

  • Cooking dairy-, corn-, tomato- and chocolate-free

    This doesn’t sound too intense, and for some recipes it’s not. But then there are others that are full of these foods. So I’m currently working on finding good alternatives to homemade spaghetti, chips and salsa, and cheesecake, just to name a few recipes. There’s also a lot of simple substitutions to make that I’ll be sharing also!

  • What to do with old magazines

    Last semester, I had a magazine subscription. Even though I don’t have the subscription this semester, I still have about 15 magazines hanging out in one of my desk drawers just waiting to be turned into some Pinterest-y craft.

  • Books I’m reading

    For Christmas, I got a Kindle. This year, I’ve set a goal on Goodreads to read 40 books. So far, I’ve read four. I still have a ways to go for this goal and a lot of year left to get it done, so I’m excited!

So come on by and join as I embrace blogging and share my stories with y’all.

    Lauren, I am looking forward to reading about your cooking adventures. Actually, I think cooking dairy-, corn, tomato-, and chocolate-free does not sound easy at all! Nice AP style on that suspended hyphenation as well. 😉

    Read 40 books this year. What an awesome goal! I'm always beating myself up for not taking more time to read for fun. I can't wait to hear about some of the books you're reading now.

    Life without dairy, corn, tomato and chocolate sounds to me like no life at all. Heck, life without cheese would be unbearable. Props to you for experimenting with alternative recipes! I'm excited to see what you've got in store for us 🙂

    I'm really excited to read this blog, especially about your recipe experimentations. As someone who can't have dairy, I know the struggle! And, as an avid reader, I can't wait to hear about the books you read!

    Lauren! What fun topics. I feel like this will be an indepth blog into the mind of Lauren. I'm looking forward to learning more about you besides the journalism side. Although I don't know about these recipes. . . Perhaps we could have taste-testing days? Although, if something doesn't have chocolate, is it really worth eating? The questions of life. . . anyway, looking forward to getting to know the other sides of Lauren!

    Lauren, I'm looking forward to reading your blog and learning more about you! I cannot wait to see what recipes you come up with but like Madison is it really worth eating if there isn't chocolate?? haha! I'm also looking forward to see what books you read. 40 books is a lot but I believe in you! 🙂
