I’m starting a blog, and here’s why

“Writers write.”

It’s simple. It’s innate. It’s true. And it’s one of the most valuable lessons I’ve learned since starting my journalism career. (Thank you, Scott Winter.)

Writing is how I cope. Writing is therapeutic.

This summer, unlike most incoming juniors majoring in journalism, I don’t have an internship. Instead, I’m skipping out on a summer where I could have my third internship to immerse myself in another culture by spending five weeks studying abroad in Cusco, Peru with 42 strangers. And so I write.

I know, I know. The world doesn’t need yet another study abroad blog. I get it—at least five study abroad blogs pop up in my newsfeed on a daily basis. But writers write, and I’m currently a writer with no writing outlet. I do plan on continuing to blog somewhat regularly once I return home. I promise. But until then, you’ll just have to deal with one more study abroad blog popping up on your Facebook page. And I make no apologies for that.

So, there you have it. Stay tuned, folks.
