If you are reading this, I’m sure you are wondering, “Who is Cassie and why is she posting on Good Books and Good Wine?”
I will start with the first question, I am actually April’s younger sister. Now that that’s out of the way, I’m 22 years old and I work full time in marketing for an engineering firm. I graduated college this past May with a BS in Communications and minors in Computer Art and Public Relations. In my free time I like to play video games, read books, spend time with my boyfriend, and watch Netflix cuddled up with my cat, Callie.
Why am I posting on my sister’s blog? Well, the simple answer is that I’m looking to start new hobbies. I’ve worked multiple jobs throughout high school and college, which led to me having very limited free time. While my friends were out having fun, I was spending time stocking shelves at Lowe’s or setting up for programs in the student union. Overworking myself took its toll on me, but I welcomed the busy lifestyle. Upon graduating in May, I now only work 8pm-5pm Monday through Friday. For the first time in at least seven years, I have nights and weekends completely free. I have so much free time, I don’t know what to do with myself. I mean, you can only spend so many nights on the couch with your cat before you start to believe you are the crazy cat lady at age 22.
Now, I am trying new activities and hobbies to find out what I really enjoy doing. Through many hours of teaching from my boyfriend and several Pinterest links from April, I’ve started to learn to cook. I also completed a 6 week session of Hatha Yoga and recently started another 6 week session of Vinyasa Flow Yoga. I’ve enjoyed learning the art and getting into shape. However, yoga only takes up one night of my week. Upon conversations with April, I mentioned my interest in possibly starting my own blog. Without hesitation, she offered me a spot on Good Books and Good Wine, for which I am very grateful.
I quickly accepted her offer and here I am writing my very own introductory post. April has also given me free reigns to write about whatever I feel like. I plan to discuss anything and everything ranging from movies to video games (and of course books). I will leave you with a picture of Callie.
Okay, maybe I am a crazy cat lady…
