Hi everyone, if you have stumbled upon this page it means one of two things. 1. You are trying to get to know this girl behind her MacBook or 2. You have no idea where you are and aimlessly clicked the about me tab. Whichever the case, welcome.
For those of you who clicked here on purpose, some of you may have followed me on one of my previous blogs… you may be wondering why I have decided to show my face. Why I am no longer a hidden face behind my MacBook. When I was 14 and had just started blogging, not only was I afraid of stalkers (stranger danger… thanks middle school for teaching me something) but I was embarrassed. I had a weight loss blog and was terribly embarrassed of my weight and size and skin and just my whole life.
I’m 20 now. I’m a college student who is trying to live her best life (while simultaneously trying to get my shit together) and I have nothing to be afraid of anymore. I am no longer embarrassed (of my body anyway… my dance moves are a different story).I am comfortable in my own skin and comfortable sharing my life; past, present, and future with all of you with no shame whatsoever.So, here’s to the past of hiding, and to the future of being confident, extraordinary, and visible to the world.
I started writing because it has been something I could always do. I’m not an artist but writing is still art without the headaches (okay sometimes I still get them). I’ve lived in the suburbs of the Windy City (Chicago… and no it’s not called the windy city because of its wind but nice try) for the past 20 years. Minus that one year I spent studying at San Diego State. Yes, I loved that school, the WEATHER, and everything San Diego had to offer, however, California (specifically Southern California) just really wasn’t where I belonged. So, after a gap year and a trip to Peru, I ended up in a small town in Southeastern Ohio, where I’m currently studying to be a Spanish teacher!
On this blog, you will find a modge podge of my life. I like the term lifestyle blog but hate how people use it. Some people post strictly fitness, others strictly fashion. I am not just a college student, not just a vegan, I am so much more. This is why you will find a lot more than one subject on my blog. There was a time when I tried to make a general theme here. I later realized that I am too much of a messy bitch to have a mere one to two topics here. That being said, you will find a mix of fashion, fitness, veganism, mental health, recipes, life updates, and a whole lot of sarcasm.
So, take your coat off and stay a while.
