Even though this is the shortest month of the year I feel that I have made some real progress towards a few of the goals I have set for myself. Goal 1: I have been good about keeping up with reading. This month I have read four books (and am about half-way through another). Three […]Read more "Personal Goals Updates: February"
Hello, 2017 2016 was a crazy year (and I am sure that 2017 will be just as crazy), but if I have one hope for this New Year I hope that it is a more productive year. Even though I went to Europe last year, spent three months on the island of Lesvos, Greece […]Read more "Hello, 2017 (The Road Ahead)"
I returned to the United States on the first day of July, but I feel like I left behind my entire life in Greece. It is a strange feeling, and after almost a week of being back, the strangeness continues to linger. Honestly, this is a very hard post to write – every time I […]Read more "Back, but Not Home"
On a much-needed day off last week, I set off with three companions on another island road trip. Once again I feel the need to mention that if you are going on holiday this year, Lesbos is the place to go. It has a beauty like no other place in the world!

I have been here about two weeks now and it has been an adjustment in several ways, though not all of […]Read more "Molyvos, Lesbos, Greece"
Hey all! I know I am super behind in posting blog updates, but I have been a little busy with my travels (and if I am being honest, I have put off getting a universal adapter for my laptop, but now that I have I am ready to share!). After a very long (30+ hours) […]Read more "Ireland – March 2016"
Hey all! Well the countdown is officially underway. In 7 days I will be leaving to begin my journey to Europe and in 10 days I will officially be there! I can’t even begin to express how excited I am. I have wanted to go to Europe for such a long time now; it is […]Read more "The Countdown Begins"
Here is another post I felt was in need of reformatting (I am currently re-doing my entire blog as I was not completely satisfied with how it look, but I’m getting there). So if you missed it the first time, here is a little snapshot of my amazing trip to Seattle last April: Today, I […]Read more "Seattle, WA Norwescon – April 2015"
Again, as I was looking back through old posts, I noticed that this post had bad formatting, so I am republishing it with the corrections, I hope you enjoy it: My birthday is always a hard one to plan around. Most of my friends are gone on Christmas Eve to be with their families for […]Read more "Haiti 2014/2015"
