Good question.

This blog is just another one of the millions of blogs that exist.

It started as a study abroad blog in 2014 when I spent five months studying in Costa Rica. I picked it back up again when I spent the summer of 2015 in Guatemala City. Throughout documenting these cross-cultural experiences, it dawned on me that writing had become both a hobby and a therapy.

So, here we are.

I invite you to follow along as I blog through the day-to-day and try to find the extraordinary among the ordinary. Here you will find a random assortment of musings, rants, stories and commentary from my THRILLINGLY normal life.

My one hope is to always leave you laughing, mulling over a new thought, or resting in the knowledge that you’re not alone.
