About Me

My name is Clarissa. Writer. Former intern at The Everygirl. Mormon. Thrift store enthusiast. Foodie. Dog lover. Grad student. Chicago girl. Seattle native.

I'm a 20-something trying to find her place in this world. Currently, I work as a department assistant at DePaul University where I'm also pursuing a graduate degree in journalism.

These days I'm learning more and more the value of living in the present. 

A little more about me...
  • I love blogging and reading lifestyle publications like The Everygirl and Matchbook Magazine.
  • My alma matter, Utah State University, is close to my heart. Go Aggies!
  • Fall is my favorite season with spring coming in second place.
  • I've never been a big fan of summer (weird, I know).
  • Target is one of my the happiest places on earth. 
  • Thrifting is a favorite hobby of mine. 
  • I have a strange love of ducks. 
  • I think hot chocolate and grilled cheese sandwiches are the ultimate comfort food.
  • I dream of becoming the editor of a university magazine.
  • Baseball is my favorite sport.
