About Me

Hey reader! My name is Stefany and you have stumbled upon the “About Me” section of my blog. I am a Senior at Indiana University of Pennsylvania. I am studying Middle Level Education with a concentration in mathematics. Some of my hobbies are tap dancing, quad riding, and reading on my Kindle.

I have been tap dancing since I was 4 years old.

I have provided a video (below) to introduce myself to you in about 30 seconds.

Some more things about me:

I have an orange tabby cat named Lyda. She is almost 12 years old! She is also extremely fat. I am so used to picking her up that when I pick up a normal sized cat I am afraid I’m going to break it! I love my kitty and have always been a cat person. Don’t get me wrong, I like dogs too! I just seem to gravitate toward cats more.

My favorite book that I have read recently is “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children” by Ransom Riggs. My all time favorite series of books is the Harry Potter series. Another series I definitely recommend is the “Hunger Games” trilogy. I couldn’t put the books down once I started reading them! If you have any suggestions of books I should read, let me know!

My favorite Harry Potter book is "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire."

I have also written a poem to tell you a bit about where I’m from.

Where I’m From

(inspired by George Ella Lyon)

*          *          *

I’m from jaggerbushes,

from “cricks” and pop.

I am from Pittsburghese.

*

I am from camping trips,

sitting around the fire and cooking s’mores.

Swimming all day and playing cards all night.

*

I’m from family time,

from childish comedy and “the tickle test.”

I am from a loving family.

*

I’m from musicals,

playing the flute and tap dancing.

I am from the arts.

*

I’m from beach trips,

swimming in the ocean and tanning

with my immediate and extended family.

*

I’m from Steelers Country,

P. I. T. T. Let’s go PITT!

three strikes, you’re out!

*

I’m from Pennsylvania.

  1. You must read Hate That Cat (the sequel to Love that Dog)…I have it and you can borrow it if you like. I had cats growing up but I can just never get over the litter box…if I could potty train a cat or have it to be able to do its business outside, it would be great because I do LIKE cats…just not their boxes! 🙂
