My name is Natalia Perez, and this is my blog theARTSiLifestyle.
I am currently a sophomore at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, majoring in Music Performance and Chemistry.
That’s right, a Tarheel born and a Tarheel bred. Naturally, I hate all things related to Duke. My family and I originally lived in New York/ New Jersey (we lived in both), and we moved to Greensboro, NC.
I’m an iced coffee addict and a Broadway Musical fanatic. I play soccer and the clarinet. I also enjoy singing. I spend more time at the mall then I spend in my own home, and I watch way more Glee than I should. There isn’t a genre of music that I hate (besides maybe rap). I send at least four snapchats a day, but picking out the perfect outfit is probably the best part of each day. I live my life for the experience, and I live for taking chances. My favorite numbers are 3 and 19, and my favorite color is lime green. I have a phobia of spiders, and my accessory of choice is a scarf. If I could marry one celebrity it would probably be Darren Criss.
As for the blog, the idea hit me one morning as I walked out of the music building. Across from one of the music buildings is the home of the UNC’s Art Department. I looked up and saw a sign, “TheArtsyLifestyle,” and thus a blog was born. I already write for a music magazine, and frankly, there’s nothing I know more than music. This blog is essentially my space to air my opinions on the arts.
