My Mythical Self By: Danielle Komro

As my third year at Stout comes to a close, I can't help but think about how lucky I am. I am lucky to be a part of a very unique major at a wonderful school. If it wasn't for Stout, I probably wouldn't be studying the type of program I am. Long live print!

The Stout Typographical Society (STS) has made a huge positive impact on my life here at Stout. I enjoy learning new things that we don't learn in our classes. I am so thankful for the new friendships I've created from being in this club. Every spring our organization goes on an industry tour. It is the one activity I look forward to the most. The trip is a great eyeopener to see large and small companies do the one thing we all enjoy, PRINT! I always kick myself in the butt for not joining my freshman year, but I am happy I decided to join.

I was born and raised right here in west-central Wisconsin. I grew up just twenty miles south of Menomonie, out in the middle of nowhere! My home is on top of a huge hill so it is always windy. It is a blessing when we finally get a calm night to have a huge bon fire. We definitely take advantage of those nights!

Everyone knows how much Wisconsin winters suck. Well, it sucks even more when living on a huge hill. To some, this hill is even scary during good weather. To us at home, it's no big deal. The best part about our drive home, is capturing beautiful moments like this.

Here's a quick little preview of the Komro family! My brother, Alex is a senior in high school and will be attending CVTC in the fall. Linda, my mom, works for the Durand-Arkansaw School District. And my dad, Rod, works at Wieser Concrete.

Introducing the newest member to the Komro family, meet Hemi (yes, like the Dodge engine). Alex got her last June and I honestly don't know how we functioned without a dog in our lives. She is full of energy, curiosity, and strength, but also likes to take naps occasionally. I am prepared to fill my phone memory with photos and videos of this rambunctious dog!

"It's been said that everlasting friends go long periods of time without speaking and never question the friendship. These friends pick up like they just spoke yesterday regardless of how long its been and how far away they live, and they don't hold grudges. They understand that life is busy and love is there." - Unknown

Thank you for viewing my Sparks Story!

As Rhett and Link say at the end of every episode, "Be your mythical best!"
