Hey everybody,

I haven’t ended world hunger, found a cure for cancer, or won an Olympic medal, and that stresses me out. I’m just a typical soon-to-be college freshman – basically a pro at being average – here with you to continue my journey in discovering that even the most ordinary people in the universe can be the happiest and most influential.

If you have low self-esteem and are looking to bring some pizzaz into your life, no matter how run-of-the-mill you think you are, this blog is just right for you!

I’ll be a student at the University of Alabama at Birmingham studying Biomedical Engineering this fall, and I currently work at Bentley Systems. I enjoy watching an unhealthy amount of Netflix, cooking, reading comics, jamming out to my record collection, traveling, and creating just about any DIY idea that comes my way.

As the legendary Michael Scott fromĀ The Office once said, “Sometimes I’ll start a sentence and I don’t even know where it’s going. I just hope I find it along the way.” I’m not a professional writer, but one of my goals includes improving my writing skillz- and keepingĀ The Office references to a minimum.

Embrace the basic,

Lauren Barr
