Hi everyone! My name is Mallorie Sanders and I am a sophomore at Texas State University majoring in electronic media and mass communications. I am currently a videographer for my college’s radio station, KTSW 89.9. To start off, I will tell you some things about me so you can get to know me better. I am someone who enjoys the outdoors, especially hiking or soaking up the sun. I also love animals and spend majority of my time volunteering at animal shelters. I like to explore new restaurants or things to do with my friends, so I thought I would make a blog and write about the activities I find to be either extremely interesting or just a waste of time.
I live in San Marcos, Texas, which is just about 40 minutes outside of Austin, Texas. I always enjoy going to Austin, which I thought would be the perfect location to explore various new activities or restaurants that I have yet to try, but have often heard about. Austin is popular for its live-music scene as well as its food and many parks that people are able to hike or bike at. A lot of Austin’s trails also feature swimming spots that are really well-known in the area. However, there are many hidden places that only people from Austin really know about.
I will be trying out as many restaurants and activities that I can in Austin in order to see how they really are and give my honest opinion of them. I will also be including photos in order for people to actually see each place I’m describing. There are many websites that list things to do in Austin, such as Do512 or 365ThingsAustin, which explain many activities for people to try. I will be following these lists as well as other popular places that people from Austin have told me about in order to hopefully help visitors in Austin or people who are just new to the area, decide which activity they should invest their time into. I am hoping to find some new favorite places for me to share with my friends and family in the process. I wish to also expand my page into becoming it’s own Instagram page in the future.
I hope you all decide to come with me along my journey of discovering Austin!
