Hi there! My name is Mary, and I’m 18 years old. I’m currently a freshman in college majoring in veterinary technology. I’ve always had a huge passion for animals, especially dogs, so deciding to go to school as a vet tech was a no brainer. Before college, though, I was homeschooled from my sophomore to senior year. Apart from school, my favorite hobby is hiking. I went on my first hike about 2 years ago, and I fell in love. I get to hike all over with my German shepherd, Bella, by my side. From January to December of 2019, I completed over 100 hikes, totaling more than 300 miles. I’m so glad you’ve decided to take a look at my blog. I talk about what I’m experiencing in my life, as well as give college, hiking, and homeschooling tips. I hope you enjoy!
