A month and a half ago, my friend @mentallyfitsam
nominated me to share 10 things about myself. In my usual fashion, I’m just getting around to it now 😂
1️⃣ I’ve been nomad-ing for about 5 years and I just moved back to the States to take over the family business. What’s the business?, you ask. Stay tuned 😉
2️⃣ I have been to 41 countries. My New Years resolution was to get to 44 by 2019. I think being only 3 short is pretty good.
3️⃣ I have been to 31 states and I’m hoping to hit all 50 before I move abroad again.
4️⃣ I am 25 years old. I have one sister and one brother, 20 and 18 years older than me, respectively. Our parents are in their 70s.
5️⃣ In addition to the Master’s in creative writing I just completed, I have a Bachelor’s in film studies & art studio with a focus in darkroom photography. I never learned digital anything in school and have been slowly teaching myself over the last few years.
6️⃣ I was a dancer for fifteen years. I started with ballet when I was 3 and studied all different types of dance (tap, jazz, contemporary, Irish step, etc.) until I was 18. I still like to choreograph from time to time to blow off steam.
7️⃣ I’m very passionate about politics. It was causing me a lot of stress - not sleeping, teeth grinding, hair falling out, the whole nine lol - so I took a year off and blocked out anything politics-related. It was a lovely reprieve but I’m ready to get revved up and back into it.
8️⃣ In junior high and high school I had a crazy obsession with Superman. My childhood bedroom is still decked out wall to wall with Superman paraphernalia.
9️⃣ I am a master of procrastination. Seriously. It took me nearly two months to write this post and doing it now is just so I can procrastinate from my other work 😂
1️⃣0️⃣ Per the recommendation of several doctors, I am going gluten free in the hopes of relieving my chronic joint pain. Please share your favorite gluten free recipes!
I hope you’ve enjoyed getting to know me a little better! If you share 10 things about yourself, be sure to tag me so I can read all about you!
