This is my first blog post for my Writing & Theory Practice class. I am introducing myself for the purpose of starting dialogue in the class. This is my second semester in my English Writing Studies Masters Program and I will be taking another three classes this semester. My pronouns are he/him/his and I am 23 years old. I am a black man, 2nd generation Jamaican-American black man, and I was born on the very second day of the 21st century. My interests are in creative fiction writing, music appreciation, walking in warm and cool weather, reading outside in good and cool yet warm weather, learning how to draw, writing my thoughts down, organizing my personal spaces, and learning to better myself as a person.

For this semester I want to engage more with others, as last semester I was more withdrawn and kept to myself more than I wanted to. Also, because covid-19 is still a problem I intend to take newer and safer precautions when going to classes.
