Hello, I'm Gen (short for Geneviève; I'm French, from Ontario, Canada). I have no problem admitting I'm 25, though I really don't feel like it (does anyone really feel their age anyway?!) and I'm still a student; well, a graduate student, doing my masters in Biochemistry, which is finishing up! I can't wait to finish my studies, I'm so over being a student!
Ever since I moved out of my parents' a couple years ago, I've been learning the art of "house keeping". Yes, I think it's an art: balancing cooking, cleaning, laundry, shopping, budgeting, school, organizing, decorating, crafting, and whatever else life throws my way! I have to say, I really enjoy it, though, being able to do everything my own way :)
I'm also so happy I'm not living alone, either. I don't think I'd have much motivation for all of it if it weren't for my boyfriend of 3 1/2 years. He's also still a student, currently in the externship portion of his M.D. degree. He makes me laugh on a daily basis, and I love him to pieces, which makes this whole experience that much more worth it! Especially since we're 2 hours away from our family and friends. We can't wait to move back once this portion of our life is done, but right now we're making the best of it.
About the Blog
I think my blog name is pretty descriptive- Color Me Domestic. I wanted a place where I could share my adventure of becoming independent, in a "housewife" sort of way, minus the wife part, and well the house part seeing as we're still living in an apartment. I like to blog about home organization, DIY projects, sewing, a bit of cooking (but not too much since I'm really not that great of a cook), tips and tricks, with crafts thrown in the mix. I'm also really into technology (an other reason why this blog was born) and like to share some tips about that too.
I will try my best to give a tutorial/how-to or point to one when showing you what I made. I am here learning all this new crafty and DIY business too, and I understand how helpful tutorials can be- knowing where to get the materials, why I chose to do it a particular way, exactly how it was made. If you think you have a better way of doing something, please don't hesitate in sharing with me. As I said, I am learning, I don't know what the heck I'm doing most of the time! And I'm probably too lazy to do proper research ;)
Just know that I am a full time masters student, so this blog is my side project. I cannot post every day, and most of the time it's only once a week. I do however try to post more frequent updates and sneak peaks on Facebook, you know those things that don't necessarily warrant a full blog post all to itself.
