This is me pretending to be stoic and serious while hiking with my best friend Monica in the Badlands-but in reality, I laughed that entire trip.
In fact, I am often heard laughing. I like to laugh, smile, and be social – my mother says that I like to hear myself talk which is why I am always making noise. I don’t know that I wholeheartedly agree, but am not sure that she’s wrong either. I am often seen wearing an awful combination of mismatched clothing – my faves are flannel shirts, running shorts, and bare feet – and carrying around an ungodly amount of coffee and/or water. You can find me in the woods, along the lake shore, or at the local brewery or coffee shop. I am a try-er of new things, a lover of children – although I must think that college students are pretty great too since I am pursuing a Masters degree in Adult and Higher Education and wish to work in Student Service Administration at a college or university upon graduating – and a free spirit. I was born in Northern Michigan and raised by the Great Lakes, but as of recently am a transplant to Vermillion, South Dakota.
I am a storyteller, a communicator, and a mediocre writer – hence the blog – and it is my hope that I can share the most important stories, moments in time, and facets of my life here with you all – and that you’ll get a kick or a giggle out of some of it, too!
