My name is Merril Ann Mullendore. I grew up in Pell City, Alabama and that`s the only place I`ve ever called home until I moved to Jacksonville just a few weeks ago. I am 18 years old and I have decided to study engineering in college. For me college is a whole new world. I graduated from Victory Christian High School in Pell City with less than 40 other people and I personally knew every student in my senior class, because aside from maybe five students it was the same class I had grown up with since I started kindergarten there when I was 4. We were all a pretty tight knit group and even though we didn`t like each other and get along all the time we were something like a family. That is one thing I have already begun to miss since graduating. Walking into a college classroom full of brand new faces is a bit of shock for someone like me but I`m sure that every freshmen feels this way to an extent.
While I was in high school I played volleyball, which I loved, basketball, which I only played for one season because I was terrible, and tennis, which is what I feel I was best at and that`s also where I got to know my favorite teacher/coach and now friend Miss Hillary Hathcox who we all called Miss H. I graduated with honors last May and have been looking forward to college ever since.
If you want to friend me or learn more about me you can go to my facebook page. I guess that`s all you need to know about me and my life up to now. After posting this first blog I`m really looking forward to blogging again.
