This blog is about my daily life and the crazy adventures I get myself into. While life is more on the calm side at the moment, the next great adventure is always just around the corner 🙂
Here’s a breakdown of livetraveleatcreate:
LIVE – because we’re all just living through this crazy thing called life and it’s our responsibility to make sure we live it to the fullest
TRAVEL – I literally live to travel. I’ve been to 15 countries outside of the US including: Australia, Belgium, Canada, China, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, France, Greece, Italy, The Netherlands, Nicaragua, Panama, Switzerland, and Vatican City State.
I lived in Costa Rica for 5 months in 2010 for the spring semester of my sophomore year of college (by far the best decision I’ve ever made in my life). Greece and the DR were also undergrad study abroad trips, though they were 2-week summer programs. In grad school I spent a week in China and two weeks in Italy.
EAT – because everyone’s gotta do it! I love food. I really do. Especially chocolate. I’m a borderline vegetarian so most meals I make/eat don’t include meat. In 2009, I quit eating beef and also cut out soda. I tend to eat on the healthier side, but can’t resist a good dessert 🙂
CREATE – Pinterest has bascially taken over my life. Not really, but I may be a bit addicted. It’s inspired me to do all sorts of crafty things. My sister and mom are also super creative and sometimes it rubs off on me. DIY projects are right up my alley.
Now about me:
I’m a twenty-something who is used to being the youngest person around, which I don’t mind at all. I’m a college graduate and have a degree in International Studies. My second major was Spanish. I went to the University of Southern Indiana and it’s one of my favorite places in the world. I then got my Master’s in International Higher Education from Loyola University Chicago online. I currently work in the study abroad office at a big university and I LOVE IT. I have a serious case of wanderlust and am always looking for cheap travel opportunities. Oh, and I have a twin sister. For some reason people get mad when they aren’t told this up front. I like to remind them that they don’t introduce themselves by stating how many siblings they have, so why should I?
