My name is Maggie, and I am an introvert.
This blog, Maggie’s Musings, is my way of communicating my thoughts and ideas in the best way I know – writing. You’ll see a plethora of things here, everything from my favorite music to everyday life.
As you’ve probably already guessed, I’m a writer. I have a few projects I’m working on right now, and I’m always coming up with new ideas. Aside from writing, I love music (even though I can’t carry a tune), photography, reading, gaming, and a few other things on the side.
My Myers-Briggs type is INTJ, which I think means I’m destined for world domination. Or something like that. I also have a tendency to be sarcastic, though I try not to let that come through here.
I’m currently a student at Messiah College, where I’m studying English. If you ask me what I’m going to do with that degree, I’ll tell you: I don’t know yet. Perhaps I’ll be an editor or a journalist, or maybe a librarian. Who knows? All I hope is that I’m doing something I love.
And… that’s basically all there is to know about me! If you’re curious to know more, I’ve listed a few of my favorite things below. You can also find me on social media using the buttons in the sidebar there.
Also, I know that’s a nice picture of me up there, but in reality, I usually look more like this, with the lens-shaped thermos and everything:
A few of my favorite things…
