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 living in Washington, D.C., where I just finished my first year at Georgetown Law (sorta—I did the second half of the year away from the city, because, ya know, plague). For my undergraduate degree I majored in English, Political Science, and Philosophy, and minored in Public Policy and International Affairs at Southern Methodist University.
This past academic year I really enjoyed Georgetown's Curriculum B program, which combines the traditional first year classes with a philosophical look at the basic biases and underpinnings of the law. For this summer, I'm working (remotely) for Georgetown's Annual Review of Federal Criminal Procedure, as well as for a DC non-profit that does criminal justice reform work. I sure do miss the city and the ability to walk to the farmer's market, but I'm safe and healthy where I am, so it's hard to complain. Here's hoping things get back to normal soon.
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.
