Hi everyone! My name is Natalie, and I run this blog for my Mythology and Folklore class. I'm currently in my last semester as a student at the University of Oklahoma. I'm majoring in professional writing and minoring in history. My higher education journey has been pretty wild. During my first semester of college, I attended Oklahoma Baptist University. I chose this university because of its creative writing major and proximity to home. Unfortunately, OBU wasn't a good fit for me. The next three semesters I spent attending St. Gregory's University. This one I chose because I swung to the opposite end of the spectrum. I had chosen OBU solely for its academics.

Getting up in the morning is worse than pulling teeth out of a stone statue. I'm easily overwhelmed because I prefer to be and take things slowly in a relaxed manner. This world isn'
I'll be the first person to admit I'm awful with technology. Even though phones were prevalent growing up with the first iPhone out before my tenth birthday, technology is always a challenge. I can write emails and texts, operate the Google search bar and Google Drive, and find my way around YouTube pretty well. However, if you ask me to do anything else, I'll have a time getting a grasp on it (yep, that even includes blogging). Most of the time I end up at my desk like this woman in the picture! A frustrated woman at a computer. Unknown photographer. (Source: Pikist ) My first experience with blogging came in the form of WordPress. For some reason, the layout frustrated me to no end. There was something about it I couldn't wrap my head around. It's safe to say I won't be using it for the semester-long project. Instead, I've decided to stick with the recommended Google Sites. My line of thinking is Blogger was recommended, and the site has
