I’m Shannon 🙂
This blog was created with the intent to show my work that I had done through the school newspaper, the Dynamo, at the University of Mount Union and also to display the pieces that I wrote for the Hermes Sports and Events newsletters while I interned there during the summer of 2010.
However, it has evolved due to my love for writing and I have posted on the site about anything and everything that crosses my path.
The name was changed from “The Rambling of a College Student” to “Kaleidoscope” in February 2012. I was driving back home from my parents house and I discovered that that title would describe this blog as well as my life quite perfectly.
|noun /kəˈlīdəˌskōp/ kaleidoscopes, plural
I feel that throughout my life, I have evolved due to changing environments, various people I’ve come across, skills I have acquired, placed I have traveled to and things I have experienced. None of these times, people or places were necessarily better than one another; just a change. Beautiful colors mixing together and creating something amazing.
That is what this blog symbolizes. You won’t come here to read solely about my love for running, wedding planning antics, information about my personal life, my strong opinions on certain topics, or for my advice on things to and not to do in the real world. However, you will come here to find it all.
My life has never been a bore. And I intend to keep it that way.
