Spring Wanderlust

23 Mar

At this point in the semester, it’s hard not to daydream. Classes are going well and keeping me crazy busy, so in those spare free moments I have strong urge to jet set to somewhere awesome. All the work will be worth it soon, but in the mean time here are some of the places that have been keeping me sane.

Adventure

9 Aug

Hi all!

It’s been a crazy whirl wind lately. I just got back from a trip to Quebec and Montreal. We went for a wedding, but it was really great to be able to check out new cities and get a feel for the area. Both of which are great. They have nice restaurants and cool shopping, but we found we just liked hanging out and seeing where we ended up, which served us well. We had so much fun. So, I thought I’d share some pictures.

I also head out for Indiana this week. So nervous and excited. I can’t really tell which side is winning. lol. But it’ll be a new adventure!

Happy Thursday!

My 5

25 Jan

The internet is a funny thing. I check it every morning to make sure the world’s still there, read my favorite blogs, drop in for a bit of Facebook and Twitter. I come to my blog to see what’s new and try to think of some new things to say to my wonderful readers :)

But those things aside, isn’t it amazing how connected you can feel to someone you’ve never met? Technology and I have always had a bit of a tumultuous relationship, but for all of it’s faults, I love it and will always come back with open arms.

The 6 Weeks of Bliss Challenge for this week was to share some quirks about myself. I jumped on this because these are the things you really wouldn’t know from the internet.

1) I collect journals. I don’t know whether it’s my general love of books, or my perpetual writer’s block but I find solace in surrounding myself with beautiful books. My goal is to fill an entire journal. It hasn’t happened because try as I might, I just can’t bring myself to sit down a write everyday.

2) I was in a play in middle school and got a boot stuck on my leg. It had to be pried off with a bar!

Certainly didn't look like this- but still!

3) I hate sailing. I was in a summer course while in the Bahamas that lasted a couple of weeks. I kept getting burned, hit with the boom and lost a girl’s shoe while capsizing. It was traumatizing.

4) I’m a travel fiend, but airports make me nervous. I always think I’m late, all the rushing and procedure. But I’m totally fine when I’m on the plane. Weird, right?

5) I love soft lights, so much so that I have Christmas lights up in my room all year.

I would love this

 

Your turn! Feel free to share some of the quirks that make you so special :)
