The First Day of November

My favorite day of the year is the first day of every month. To me, a new month is full of excitement and opportunity; it gives me a chance for a new beginning. I particularly like November because one of my favorite poems, My November Guest by Robert Frost is centered around the month. I hope that everybody had an enjoyable October, and if you didn't, now is the time to make some changes and to shed your worries like the trees are shedding their leaves. November may be the beginning of cold weather and icy sidewalks, but perhaps we should take a cue from Mr. Frost and learn "to know the love of bare November days..."

...How will you embrace this new beginning?

I am a student at the Indiana University of Pennsylvania with two strong passions: education and travel. I plan to combine the two by teaching English abroad after I receive my degree in English education and Spanish education. But for now, I am enjoying my time at IUP and life in general! I feel that a day in which I didn't express myself is a day wasted. I love to develop my music taste by DJing for IUP's radio station. I also really enjoy cooking and adding my own twist to recipes - I hope to make a vegetarian cookbook someday! Finally, I have always had a love for writing, which is how I got involved with Her Campus in the first place. I started as a contributing writer, and now I am a campus correspondent for IUP's chapter of Her Campus. I look forward to working with all of the other students who belong to this great organization and cannot wait to see what will happen when all of our creativity and ideas mix together!
