First off, thanks for checking out my blog. My name is Samantha Mohun and I am a 24 year old recent college grad. In between doing research, applying for grad schools, and planning my future, I love to write and take pictures.
I have been writing in a journal since (literally) the third grade. Writing has always given me a way to process my feelings, a shoulder to cry on, and a way to remember some of my favorite memories. I have to thank my 8th grade English teacher, Mrs. Hita, for always encouraging me to write. She let me fill up my journal with my thoughts and patiently watched as I developed my style. Thank you for encouraging me to continue writing.
I am typically a very private person but I’ve finally decided to share some of those stories with you.
Taking pictures is also one of my other favorite hobbies. I’ve definitely gotten that from my dad (we’re basically the same soul born 40ish years apart). I love to shoot film because the process is so rewarding to me. Plus, I believe film pictures just come out better. I also shoot with my digital camera and my iPhone 7. But I love the way pictures are a way to express yourself with no words. Also, everything I post on here, including the pictures and writing, is my own.
The things I write about and the things I take pictures of will say more about me than this about ever will.
My hope is that you find either a story I wrote or a picture I took that makes you feel something.
