Blast From the Past: April 1994

Bump n' Grind by R. Kelly

In April 1994, I was 8 years old and a second grader at St. Aloysius Catholic grade school. My life revolved around playing "teenagers" (my sister was and still is obsessed with Beverly Hills 90210) and Barbie dolls and hoping for a shih-tzu puppy (I would get one for my 9th birthday the following year). While the TV shows I mainly watched included the likes of Salute Your Shorts and Clarissa Explains It All, when it came to music, I was the equivalent of a gang banger. When my Catholic school had Friday night skating parties at Romp 'N Roll, I was the first kid to the DJ booth to request a couple skate to this number. Oh, memories.

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States
I'm living life in beautiful Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I hold a journalism degree from West Virginia University. I have worked in television news, fashion marketing, PR, and cosmetic sales. My love for writing and sharing with the world my various passions is strong. One of my many ambitions is to be published and continue creating in the fields of digital and print media, literature and film. In my free time, I enjoy listening to music, going to concerts, reading, following Pittsburgh sports and traveling as often as possible. Some of my favorite things include beauty, style, architecture, books, tarot and astrology, thrifting and my shih-tzu, Ireland. I’m engaged to the love of my lifetimes and we look forward to starting our next chapter together. If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you!
