Hello, friend! I'm Rachel. Welcome to my little corner of the internet. I'm a Californian, introvert (INFJ), entrepreneur, fast friend, and lover of the written word.

Writing has always been therapeutic for me, allowing me to fold experience and emotion into clean, structured sentences. As an introvert, I find great comfort in the quiet process of reflecting and writing. I began this blog toward the end of my high school years, when a friend jokingly called me "The Little English Girl" after my unbridled enthusiasm for English class. I had been searching for a creative outlet, so the name stuck, and the blog began. And now, six years later, this blog is still my place for reflection.

I recently graduated magna cum laude from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo with a degree in English (emphasis in Medieval Literature) and a minor in Religious Studies. While academia has always been my primary consuming interest, entrepreneurship is a close second. Throughout college, I worked as a videographer and voiceover artist for several startups and nonprofits. I am currently the Cofounder and Creative at a startup called gatherologie, which is a simple and beautiful online directory of California wedding venues and vendors. 

I'm the patron saint of aesthetics, golden-hour adventures, and witty banter. Intentionality is important to me. I love early mornings, denim-on-denim, the sea, and my golden retriever named Whiskey.
