A Look Into Me

Emily Stephania Holycross, CMU junior studying journalism.

Lately I feel as though those are the only things defining me.

It is difficult for me to try and think of something that allows me to stand out. The more and more I think about me, the less interesting I become.

While I enjoy writing and photography, I sometimes find myself steadily approaching a road block, perhaps a dead end.

I credit most of my happiness to my dogs. It may seem silly to some, but I truly consider my dogs my best friends. Peppermint is a half Miniature Pinscher/half Shih-szu.

I walked out on Christmas morning when I was 4 years old to see a large cage wrapped in bows. I don’t remember much from the day, but what I do know for sure is that I will never receive a better gift. She makes me genuinely smile, and that is something I will never be able to repay her for.

Django, my 3-year-old English is my sweet little baby boy! He knows how to brighten any and brings so much unconditional love to our family and my life.
