This blog has had several lives over the years. It was originally intended as a way to document my Peace Corps application process, after that it was a way for my friends and family to follow along while I served for two and a half years in Paraguay, and finally once my service ended I had enjoyed blogging so much I wanted to keep it going.
But, it was the quintessential blogging burnout story. I found myself catering my posts to what I thought I should be doing, instead of what I enjoyed doing. It’s been almost 3 years since then (wow, feeling old), and a lot has happened. I moved home from Paraguay, moved back in with my parents, got an adult job, went through the hellish visa process so my boyfriend (now husband!) could come to US, got married (twice! two ceremonies), moved to DC, and started Grad school.
After a while I really began to miss blogging, so I finally decided to come back; and this time I’m do it my way. This means writing about what I want to write about. I am a firm believer that no matter what your circumstance in life, whether you work a regular 9-5 or a more non-traditional schedule, whether you are in a relationship or not, are on a tight budget or unlimited resources, you can always find adventure. Adventure in the classic sense of the word, traveling to different places, trying new activities; or adventure by going to a unique restaurant with your friends, taking a class to learn a new skill or following along on someone else’s adventure in a book, podcast or movie!
