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.
