Introduction.

Hello, everyone! My name is Jessica and I’m a senior at Oklahoma University (I will be graduating later this year!). I’m a Liberal Studies in Arts major, who plans on continuing on with my graduate degree in Museum Studies. I was a transfer student from Cameron University and after some long, hard work I was able to transfer to my dream school. So, to graduate Sooner is a huge thing for me, makes me tear up just thinking about it.

I didn’t originally go out to work in the world of art. I was bent on being a English major and write the next big novel. Alas (yes, alas) that was not meant to be. Once I started my Liberal Studies I fell in love with learning about all sorts of cultures and the art they represent (and etc) I knew that is what I wanted my career to consist of. I have been incredibly lucky to have taken some pretty amazing classes and could never choose just one I like the most, but I do have a few that made me grind my teeth in boredom and terror.

Enough, of school related chit-chat, we hear it all the time. I’d like to consider myself an avid reader (even though I’m already slacking on my Goodreads challenge this year, I have no doubt I will finish or at least get really close to finishing. I usually tend to go towards YA novels, even though about ten years passed the “acceptable” age of reading them. I’m also head over heels for Doctor Who and Sherlock. I also have no shame in saying I have a Doctor Who collection. This is why I’m going to wrap this up and just say ALLON-SY! and lets have a FANTASTIC class!

  1. Jessica, it’s really nice to (virtually) meet you and read a little bit about your life! I think it’s so great how you love OU and always dreamed about graduating a Sooner. Your major is really interesting, too. I don’t think I’ve met anyone going into the Museum Studies field. I’ve never watched Doctor Who, but my sister loves it. I could never grasp the different doctors and the plots of the show. I’m looking forward to reading your Week 13 Story!

  3. Hi Jessica!
    I don’t know I made it to the end of the semester and not having read your introduction page! I love Doctor Who and YA novels too! I am wayyyy beyond the age appropriate for such things, and I am not ashamed to say ppffftt! I guess my inner young adult had great taste then and I like to feed it often! I find it hard to read for fun during class semesters, but when I get breaks I binge read on my Kindle and binge watch television shows on Netflix and Amazon! I ran across Doctor Who a few years ago and I have been a fan nerd of it every since!
    Congrats on graduation! Good luck in all your future endeavors in life!

  4. It was nice reading all about you and getting to know you a bit better! Museum studies sounds like so fascinating and fun! When you said you were a reader and that your style was YA and joked about being old for it, I definitely feel that too! But they are so enjoyable so I say why the heck not! I had never heard of goodreads so thank you for the link!

    1. Your welcome for the link! Also, thank you for the incredibly sweet comments on my story. There was occasion in on my past classes that I was told I was not a good writer. So, it’s nice to read the opposite.

  6. Jessica, it is very nice to meet you! I actually transferred to OU also, but I originally went to Baylor! I am so glad that I can be a Sooner also! I too try and read as much as I can. It gets harder during the long semesters, but I try my best. Also, congrats on the upcoming graduation! That is awesome. Good luck in your future academic and professional career!

  8. Hmmm… Comment did not go through the first time, but I will try again here. (I”m logged in with my Twitter account… that should work).
    It is so great to have a Liberal Studies major, Jessica. Fabulous! Just today CLS did a write-up about another student who was in Indian Epics last year, Morgan Sowell. Her project is still online, and it’s about horses, which is her passion: Horses Divine. And Museum Studies is such a great field! A lot of my favorite accounts to follow at Twitter are museums. I hope this class will not be a cause for boredom or terror… and I bet you can find a way to make it into something museum-related if you want to do that! A really fun museum Storybook from a couple years ago is this one: The Ramayana Museum of Art

    And… I am also Doctor-Who-obsessed. I grew up with Tom Baker, so what a delight to have the Doctor come back to accompany my grown-up life too!

    Quick note about tags: the idea is to do separated tags, not combined – so you will have a bunch of different assignments labeled Week 1, and a bunch of different assignments labeled Storytelling (a new story each week)… so you want to do that as separate tags
    Week 1
    Storytelling
    If you do them combined, you lose the power of the tags to collect related items together in a group if you see what I mean. So in Week 2, start doing them as separated tags and that will work out great: your story will have the tag “Week 2” and ALSO the tag “Storytelling. I hope that makes sense; let me know if you have any questions about that! (Tags or labels; I know WP gives you both as an option, and either way you want to go with that choice is good.)

  10. I love the style of this page. It definitely has some fun accents.

    I hear you about being a Sooner. I went to OU years ago and am just coming back to finish up. I could have gone to a school here in San Antonio and it would have been a ton cheaper, but I really want a degree from OU so forking over the cash for it. 😛

    What type of art do you love the most? I’m not so much into impressionism or abstract art. I’m more of a realist or surrealist lover. This weekend I was on a cruise that had several painting by Thomas Kincaid that I thought were amazing but a complete departure from his normal house in classic rural town under snow.
    Also have you checked out the painting by Norman Rockwell at the OU art gallery? I couldn’t believe it when I saw it!!!!
