Why the Title?

So, this title of mine, what’s that about? Why “A Swallow in Spring”? Well, I was born in April, and my mother likes to say that every year the swallows return for the spring just in time for my birthday. We like to pretend they are flying back to the birdhouse under our roof not in response to the dictation of their migration patterns, but purely to celebrate my birth.

And now, like the swallows, I am gearing up to head back to Portland late this spring to enter into that phase of my life that involves the terrifying and electrifying thought of stepping out into the so-called “real-world.” With this realization comes a barrage of questions. Am I taking the right classes? Am I doing the right activities? Where will I live? Where should I apply for a job? Where can I get a deal on a fabulous interview suit? When all is said and done, will I have what it takes?

That said, the main point of this blog is to present an accurate, interactive, and accessible overview of my academic and personal achievements, characteristics, and experiences, as well as to document this transitional stage from a personal standpoint.

Here’s to a fabulous senior year. Cheers!
