Blog Assignment 1

Hey, My name is Martha AnnMerritt Taylor. I go by my middle name, AnnMerritt. I was born in Birmingham, Al and lived there until I was around 9 or so. Then I moved to Fairhope, Al where I lived until I graduated. I moved to mobile and attended South for my freshman year. My sophomore year I moved to Auburn and attended school there. I moved back to Fairhope and am halfway through my Junior year at South. I am majoring in Secondary Education/English Language Arts. I am aiming to attend Graduate school at South, which is why I moved back here to finish my undergraduate degree. I am majoring in secondary education because I'd like to teach literature or creative writing at a college level. I plan on continuing my education to get my Masters degree and PhD. (Hopefully!)

I am the oldest sibling, cousin, grandchild, everything in my family. I turned 21 on January 12th and spent this past weekend celebrating with my friends at The Beau Rivage in Biloxi, MS. I have a younger brother who is 18 years old. He attends the University of South Alabama and is Phi. My younger sister is in 3rd grade at Bayside Academy. My dad lives in Birmingham, Al and is co-owner of "Sweet Bones Alabama" which is a restaurant in The Summit. If your ever there, you should try it! The food is great! My mom lives in Fairhope, Al and has been remarried to my stepdad for over 10 years.

I play guitar and sing. People tell me I have a great voice, but I definitely can't say the same for my guitar skills. I do it mostly for fun, and when I'm alone to save other peoples ears, ha ha. I love doing anything that involves the water like tubing, wakeboarding, boating, white water rafting, etc. Growing up I played 2nd base and center field in softball and was a cheerleader, cocaptain one year and captain another. I really miss playing both sports and would love to get involved with them again one day.
