The (Obligatory) First Post

Welcome! Добро пожаловать!

I’m Natalie and this is my blog. I’m a student and I study history and Russian language & literature in the United States. This year, I’m studying abroad in the United Kingdom.

I like reading, writing, history, literature, classical music, and just about anything relating to Russia. I also like knitting and photography, though I don’t engage in those pastimes as much as I used to. I hope to do those more in the near future.

Anyway, be sure to return here for more posts that will certainly be more exciting than this obligatory introduction I felt that I needed to write. As Julia Powell said in the film Julia & Julia, “I could write a blog. I have thoughts.” It’s true, dear readers. I do have thoughts. Many of them.
