Hello! My name is Julia Jarvis, and I am a rising junior at Connecticut College, double majoring in English (with a creative writing concentration) and Philosophy. After college, I hope to further pursue my passion to write, with an ultimate end goal of self-employment. I’ve known I’ve wanted to be a writer since I was two-years-old, dictating stories about Barbie’s little sister, Kelly, for my mom to transcribe in cardboard-bound books. My first book, titled “Kelly’s Birthday Party,” may not have been complex in plot, but it laid the foundation for my love of storytelling.
For an unknown reason, I believed colored hole punchings were the greatest decorations. It is strikingly clear that my shaky two-year-old hands cut both the cardboard and the paper inside. Bound together with just four pieces of Scotch tape, the book is literally falling apart at the seams.
Since I was only two, I had not yet mastered the art of quotation marks; in fact, I did not know what they were. Hence why some pages are written in first-person and some pages in third-person.
Fun fact: the left and middle pages are lyrics to a song I made up specifically for this book. I still remember how the incredibly simple tune goes.
I still laugh at the last page
