Hi everyone, my name is Darlene Drum, I’m from South River, NJ, which is only ten minutes away from New Brunswick. I am starting my fifth year here at Rutgers University. I am a history major and an art history minor but I only have one required class I have left to take, then I have to take a few classes just to make up credit from my early years where I had too much fun. That is partially the reason why I am in this class. I also decided to take this class because I love to read and write and I had taken a different creative writing class two years ago and I loved it. I am also taking horticulture classes with the intentions of hopefully opening a florist one day. I plan on going to Middlesex County College after I graduate to take more classes on it there and I am currently looking for a job at a florist. I spent most of my summer working, teaching gymnastics, but when I have the opportunity I like to go to concerts and festivals with my friends. This past summer we went to the Phish festival in Saratoga where we camped out for four days. I also went to the Peach Music Festival in Sranton, PA where we saw one of The Allman Brothers last performances. With my family I had travelled to Boston for the first time ever and fell in love with the city. I would love to move there one day, not forever but temporarily. I loved the quaintness and old vintage feeling of the city. I am unsure what my personal blog will be about for this class but I most likely it will pertain to the different cities I enjoy visiting with my friends and family. I am excited to see what everybody else is going to write about!
