    Either is "correct". Normally the first would be preferred, but there are contexts where the second would be more idiomatic. – Hot Licks Sep 27 '16 at 22:33

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.
