First Assignment: Introducing Me!

Well, hello, everyone!

You probably don’t know this, but I am working on the Blogging 101 course, (I’m focused on learning and becoming a better blogger. I’m so excited!!), and the first assignment is to introduce myself. I have already done this before, but hey, why not? Just in case you don’t follow me from the start, here‘s a link to my first post. On this post, I’m revisiting it and reflecting about what’s next for me.

Okay, for the ones who don’t know me (yet!), I’m Natalie, I’m from Puerto Rico and I’m a Human Biology student that also likes to read. A lot. You can read some more about me here. (If that’s you want!) I have had this blog for five months now and it has been a wonderful experience.

I ran a book blog before and I loved it, but I gave up when I saw that I had so little time for it -with college.- *insert dramatic dun dun dun xD* When I decided to blog again, I wanted to write about books again (hence the title of the blog). SB&ST has now become so much more for me, though. It’s my place to express myself, and in some way to become a better person.

My blog has helped me to organize my thoughts and my life. (It’s a work in progress, but hey! Life always is!) I have written posts about books, and I plan on writing more about them in the future. I mean, they are my favorite things in the world! (Apart from pizza. But we’re not questioning that, are we?)

I have also blogged consistently, which was definitely one of my goals. I usually don’t have the discipline to do something for more than a few months, and it’s nice to have something to spend my time on. That’s the thing. Blogging is more than a hobby for me now. It feels like a responsibility.

Even if I don’t have a lot of followers, there are a few people that do read what I write, and care. I hope to one day be able to inspire people, and if not, at least learn to write well.


Hello, world.

Hello, this is Nat. I’m studying Human Biology and this blog post is being written during the few free minutes I have between college, my family and.. well… my reading time.

I wanted to create a BookTube account, but who am I kidding? I do not have the time or the energy to become a vlogger, even if I really desire to do it.

So this is it, my book/life blog, in which I will start expressing my thoughts on science, books and silly things. (See what I did there?). I am aspiring to try new things and get out my bubble bit by bit, and I’m sure a blog will help me to start actually living my life. (I also need to perfect my use of English if I want to go on an internship next summer.)

So yeah, this blog will be about different things. (Mostly about books, as they are my life), but other aspects of my life as well. I want to keep track of what I’m becoming, and to have a record I can visit when I’m doubtful of my choices and my future.

I will also try to post as much as I possibly can, as I do have other responsibilities. (As Organic Chemistry this year.)

I guess I could tell you more things about me, but that’s what this blog is for. We’ll learn to know each other, one blog post at a time. That’s if you want to keep reading, I guess.

See you on my next post!

Me and my friend Bones.
