Upon reading Addario’s insights in the section of It’s What I Do titled “Prelude,” a variety of my own passions came to mind. While all play a significant role in my life, some emerge as quirky and whimsical while others possess a more serious side.
Back in the spring, I attended an Accepted Students Day while determining which college I wished to attend. With about an hour to spare, my roommate (a sophomore at the time) led a tour of Atherton Hall and the surrounding area. Being an avid caffeine lover, I proceeded to ask about the various cafes and coffee shops. This quickly sparked a conversation with no end in sight. From chains like Starbucks and Dunkin’ Donuts to local options, such as Irving’s and Bagel Crust, there seemed to be an infinite number of locations which serve as both study corners and delicious eateries. Once I told my current neighbor about the experience, we jokingly decided to try every possible coffee shop in the State College area. However, a passion blog would be a great excuse to try a new cafe every week!
Music emerges as one of my passions as well: one which I could take in a number of directions. My love for playing the flute serves as a more-serious hobby, but from it derives more whimsical ideas. On Snapchat, I send a daily music pun as opposed to the classic “streaks.” Maybe I could create a band geeks/ music jokes blog? Here I would attract a more specific audience.
While still uncertain, I believe I have found several solid pics for my first ever blog! Please let me know your thoughts and what you feel would be most interesting.
