Who Am I?

Hello readers!

My name is James George. I write this blog. I am a senior English Major at Dickinson College in Carlisle, PA. Before coming to Dickinson in 2011, I went to high school at Northwestern Lehigh. I grew up in a small, rural town called Germansville, PA.

I am currently taking courses at Dickinson, working as an editorial intern at America in WWII magazine, participating in extracurricular activities, and breathing for one minute a week. I started this blog as a semester long project for my Writing In/For Digital Environments class. I chose to write about art in Carlisle in order to explore a different side of the town/campus I’ve known for almost 4 years. On campus I am involved in a lot of creative activities, but I have never had the time to create visual art. At home I frequently collage, but at school I have neither the time nor the resources (my collection of magazines). Despite my inability to collage at Dickinson, I enjoy attending campus and community art events.

This blog encourages me to make time for something I love (which is a pretty good reason to have a blog!) and to connect and inspire others interested in art. In addition, this blog lets me combine my love of writing with my love of art. I have been exploring many different kind of writing in my time at Dickinson (especially this year), but blogging is one of the most fun and applicable. I can see myself continuing to blog in the future. It is a great way for a writer to keep his/her skills fresh!
