    Either is "correct". Normally the first would be preferred, but there are contexts where the second would be more idiomatic.

There is nothing wrong with either. However, the first is generally preferred because the second implies a connection between the two things that really isn't present. Repeating "I" helps to separate the two pieces of information to avoid that unwanted implication.
