“As I stared at the books, I suddenly understood that I didn’t know a hell of a lot about anything. What it was that seemed to move me then was that learning was important… I vowed, right then, to learn something new every day. It was a deep revelation, something I felt throughout my whole self.”
I’m 24 and I live in Brooklyn, New York by way of Oklahoma City. I graduated from Oklahoma Christian University in 2011 and I’m transitioning into the adult stage of life, which is incredibly interesting and incredibly fun. I have a degree in English (emphasis writing) with a minor in accounting, with most of a minor in both international studies and Spanish, as well.
My free time is consumed with reading, writing, watching my favorite shows, and making jewelry. I also blog regularly over at A Big Picture Window, and I’m always looking for freelance opportunities! If you like what you’re reading here and you’d like me to guest post or write for you, please email me. You can find a link to my Etsy shop, Mustard Ampersand Jewelry and Crafts, right here, and I’d love for you to take a look around!
What does Mustard Ampersand mean? It started out as a whimsical title comprising two of my favorite things: the color mustard yellow and the ampersand, my favorite punctuation mark. That was two years ago. Now, when I label something with my m& title, I think of it as part of my creative body of work, my online persona, my digital presence. The essence of m& is creativity and innovation matched only by the hard work I’ve put into everything I put the label on. m& is the part of me that I put back out into the world for all to enjoy and to continue as part of a cycle of inspiration that keeps me creating daily.
If you have any questions about me, my life, or anything in general, feel free to email me.
