Introducing myself and my journal: Oh... caught me on the spot

About Me:
Hi everyone,
My name is Molly, I am a senior at Lewis & Clark College in Portland Oregon, I am majoring in International Affairs. I just returned from a semester in Dakar Senegal where I studied French, Wolof (a local language), History of Islam in West Africa and Senegalese culture. I have never had a blog before so I'll need some practice with my narrative stream. I am very excited to be on PulseWire!

My Passions:
music, art, projects

My Challenges:
keeping my ambitions within manageable proportions

My Vision for the Future:
journal entries will be dedicated to this in the near future

My Areas of Expertise:
i'm not sure i'm an expert just yet but i'm working on it

Hello Molly,

Welcome to PulseWire!

It sounds like you are studying some interesting stuff. I have a permanent intention to improve my French - but alas, it is not going too well...

I'm sure you'll have no worries with your blogging narrative - we are a very friendly bunch, and there are lots of resources and features available through PulseWire to help inspire and connect with others. You should check out some of the groups available (or start your own). They are a great place to talk about issues that concern you, or find support.

Best wishes,
