About The Blog

Hello there and welcome to Life As We Don’t Know It!

My name is Marga, and I am a college student at the University of Oregon. I’m a journalism major, specifically focusing on magazine and feature writing.

But with the technical stuff out of the way, let me explain to you what exactly this blog actually is.

People who know me tend to call me weird, but they know that I have optimism in everything around me. So, when my friends are down, or it’s raining outside, I try to help people see the “light of day” in an otherwise dark situation.

A few days ago, the rain returned, after a long period of beautiful sunny days. As the students trudged to and from class, I slowed my step and took in everything around me: the color of the grass, the sound of Jónsi, the smell of the purple flowers, and the feel of the rain. It was gorgeous. And that’s when it struck me: even in the most horrible conditions, there is something beautiful.

Thus, this blog formed.

My goal: 365 days of beautiful things, whether it is a song, video, picture, website, or quip

My hopes: people will view this blog and begin to see the world in a new light. Which is so desperately needed.

My anticipation: the next year!

It will be a challenge, but I daresay I will do it!

Welcome to Life As We Don’t Know It. And welcome to the world.
