New Semester, New Year and New Blog!
Hello, everyone! I’m Keaton and I am a junior at Iowa State double majoring in journalism and performing arts. I’m super excited to be writing for Cyclone Life and sharing my adventure at Iowa State with all of you.
Since I am new to Cyclone Life, I figured I would give you some idea of what my life is like and what you can expect to hear from me and my blogs. I live off campus in a basement apartment with two of my best friends, Sam and Tara. I am currently working as an editorial assistant for Midwest Living magazine in Des Moines. When not at work or in class I am generally working on some sort of theatre project. During my time at Iowa State I have performed multiple times with ISU Theatre, as well as with the Des Moines Community Playhouse. Some of my favorite shows have been The Secret Garden, Little Women and A Chorus Line.
My winter break flew by with a trip to Memphis with my roommates for the bowl game, spending time with family, seeing old friends from high school and just enjoying some time off. Part of me was sad to see the break come to an end, but I’m also excited to be back at school and to see what this semester has in store for me.
Getting back into the swing of school is never easy and this semester is going to be even more challenging with an 8 a.m. class on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. My plan is to try and make myself a morning person, but we will see how long that lasts.
Whatever happens this semester, I’m excited to be writing about it for Cyclone Life and hope that you keep reading. Thanks for stopping by my blog!
