Apprenticeship Alum

Joined 5 years ago from New Buffalo, Michigan. Last activity 7 days ago.

I'm Melanie and I'm a chemistry major at Purdue. I like foreign languages, cats, ballet, and rain.

I like to blog so much that I blog about blogging (yep, that's a thing.)

I'm an ENFP, coffee lover, scarf addict, rock collector, programmer, and a couple other things.

In my free time, I find things to do so that I don't have free time.
