Life is filled with learning opportunities; last weekend definitely changed the way we view and value friendship. Steph and I went on a college church retreat to a peaceful and far-away-from-civilization conference center. There, our main focus was to learn about the church and to get to know other college students and youth.
Since this is our first post, we really wanted to start by giving a short introduction and share our goals for the upcoming year.
We love learning about the human body and how it works and functions, but we also really really love the arts. We enjoy DIY projects, cooking/baking, sewing, knitting, drawing, etc. We really wanted to create this blog as an outlet for a create side. Grad school will be hard, so we wanted to balance endless nights of studying science with blogging about fun and exciting things.
We really want to share our life and learning experiences with everyone. We hope to form relationships with and really get to know our readers. We want our topics and discussions to be relevant to you all. There will be four main categories that we will cover: health, life, beauty, and fashion.
For the most part, our blog posts will be written individually. While we will have some overlapping topics, Steph will focus more on healthy living and Jo will focus more on beauty. Nevertheless, this blog–Opal & Opal–will be a joint venture between us two!
We hope that you enjoy our blog!
