About Me and This Page

Hello world! Hello beyond as well, I suppose. That would be flattering. My name is Destiny Rose Murphy. I'm 19 years old, female, and currently moving to Washington, D.C.. For my undergraduate degree I majored in English, Political Science, and Philosophy, and minored in Public Policy and International Affairs at Southern Methodist University. I just finished that degree and am now preparing to attend Georgetown Law in the fall, which is very exciting. For the summer, I'm working to get my personal finances ready for adulthood (and student loans), prepping for law school, and enjoying reading some fiction, which I probably won't get to do much next year!

This blog began because I got my tonsils taken out. During recovery I realized there wasn't a lot of good advice to be found online for people who wanted to recover quickly and strongly. So, I decided to write an article intended to help others out. Then, (partially because sometimes when I can't sleep I write about things, and partially because I wanted to learn more about coding), I decided to expand the blog to everything else I think about. I hope you enjoy reading the stuff that I like to write, and, please, reach out if you have any questions or comments.
