To discover parts of myself through the grace of others
I am a simple girl born and raised in the midwest actively pursuing my dreams of traveling the world. I am about to embark on a 10 week backpacking trip across Europe. I would love to meet locals in the areas I'm visiting so that I can learn a little bit about their culture.
Treat others as you wish to be treated.
Other words of wisdom I try to live by:
"You don't get to choose how you're going to die. You can only decide how you're going to live"
"It's a sad day when you find out that it's not accident, or time, or fortune, but just yourself that kept things from you."
"If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change"
MUSIC: Rock, electronic, hip-hop, classical, jazz, latin. I really love going to live concerts and discovering new music. I'm also trying to teach myself the piano, but I am NOT good.
DANCING: comes with loving music. I am an intermediate salsa dancer and would like to learn swing, tango and belly dancing someday.
ART: My primary interests lie in graphic design but I appreciate traditional forms of art. I also enjoy photography and just recently purchased my first dSLR camera.
FOOD: I loooooove food and trying new cuisines. ( I will never be skinny!)
TRAVELING: curiosity makes me want to see and experience the world
LEARNING: anything and everything, but more specifically I love learning about new cultures
