And here you will find my various globe-trotting stories. I’m assuming my mom will be my most avid reader. And I adore that. But if I get to share my stories with more people that would be awesome too.
Born and raised in a small, farm town in California, I live the wonderful cliche of being a small-town girl with big-city dreams. I was always one to have a journal in my backpack and an idea I had to write down, whether at the grocery store or in the middle of an appointment.
But my real love for writing blossomed right after college. After graduating from UC Irvine, I was craving the sense to MARVEL at the world. I was tired of being so focused on my own life plan. I wanted to learn about the world. So I traveled, studied, and worked in India, Greece, London, and Southeast Asia. Amidst my travels, I wanted a consecutive way to keep in touch with everyone back home. That aside, I needed a way to make sense of the breathtaking but startling new experiences my home and college towns did not include. So what did I turn to? Writing! I journaled every day. When people asked me how I was or what India was like or how all of this made me feel, it was always so hard to answer. All I could do was assure people I was okay, but really I knew nothing made sense except writing it out. I became obsessed with it. In between meals or on the train to anywhere, I was writing.
Today I live in LA, and while I’m so enjoying setting roots, building my home base, and learning to marvel at the beauty of everyday life- I will always have the globe-trotting flame in me. Right now my posts in this blog end in 2014. I have many travel stories since 2014 to still post, but since this is the first place I shared my writing, it will always be a special blog to me. To keep up with the rest of my work, check out my writing portfolio!
My goal is to live and write with wonder. To find it, mine it, and never lose it. To find wonder in people, food, landscapes, and the pursuit of a curious wake. I find this life fiercely magical, and I hope that by reading any of my words you find magic in your own life too.
