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! 🙂
