Introducing: Freshmen Assemble8:00 AM
I'm proud to introduce *drumroll*
When this project idea popped into my head, I literally couldn't get it out until I had typed down the (horrible) first version of rules and topics and sent a few emails out to other bloggers I knew were headed for college this fall. Two of them replied and that's how this whole thing got started. They're awesome and I can't wait for you to meet them! I will be linking to their posts on each of my Freshmen Assemble posts (we will be covering the same general areas), so make sure to check them out and give them comment love. :)
Introducing the participating bloggers:

My name is Ashtyn or Ash. I am a college freshman, as I’m sure you have guessed. I have lived in southern California my entire life and am taking the leap up north and moving to Washington to attend Western Washington University this fall (go Vikings!). I’m excited to start classes and intend to major in Creative Writing, although I have yet to declare. I’m most excited about learning new things, trying sports and activities I never have before (I want to kayak so badly), and meeting new people. I’m half excited, half absolutely terrified and I’m ready to share my experiences with you.
You guys already know me, but I thought I'd hop in and do this for fun anyways. The pseudonym I use for blogging is Skylar Finn, but my real name is Selena. I blog about books and life right here on Life of a Random. It's my favorite thing. Seriously. Besides constantly tweaking the blog design and reading, I'm getting ready for my first year as an Art major with an emphasis in Design at Tennessee Technological University which is around two hours from my house. And...which I'll be moving too. I'm super excited but also super nervous because people. I'm a shy introvert (Woop!) and this whole socialization thing is tricky. I think it's pretty safe to say I won't be getting into any sports activities (unless the coolness out does the painfulness) but I might be checking out things like singing or photography.
And that completes the introductions. Our posts will start tomorrow and end on Friday. We hope you'll follow us on our college experiences and maybe learn some useful tips on the way. :)
