Today I was walking. It was a beautiful, sunny day, and I went to walk around the city. This is a new habit for me, for when I was just itching to move, to do something. So I walked down a street and was hit with deja-vu. I was standing outside of the hotel my family stayed in the weekend I visited Temple for the first time. The last time I had been outside of this hotel, Philadelphia was this great unknown for me. I was just at a random hotel in a random part of the city. And as I looked around today, the street was less unfamiliar. I knew where I was in relation to other parts I had also come to recognize. And as I continued walking, I thought about the importance of context. You can’t understand something until you are able to see the relationships to the world around it. So consider this the context to me, Amy Hackett.
I am a junior at Temple University, planning to graduate in December 2020 after 3.5 years of studies. I am a Communications Studies Major with a minor in Content Creation. I am from a small town in northern New Jersey that nobody seems to have heard of. And I have a million stories and questions and ideas about the world and the people in it.
