About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Go to every city that is famous for its coffee...then pick a favorite...then have a rematch.

ABOUT ME

I'm a twenty-something women who has lived in Washington state all her life. I've only gone on a few out-of-state trips with friends and want to do more. I plan on living in more than one country and travelling while I study journalism. I'm a big fan of coffee, tea, and new foods. I'm also big on natural and man-made history and would love to see as much of it as I can! What I'm not is an adrenaline junkie, though my boyfriend of two years is. He can ride rollercoasters all day while I sit in a coffee shop, talking with the locals.

PHILOSOPHY

I've only recently realized that I am not as limited as I've always thought. I used to think that my life was going to be spent in a job I only accepted with a future marked with family vacations and an unpublished book or two. Recently, many of my friends have picked up...and left. They've decided that New York is home or that a year in China sounds great. They've made these insane, amazing changes...and that means I can too, right? So I'm doing it. I'm going back to school, back to Mexico in October (for la Dia de los Muertos and to explore the surrounding areas) and want to find a way to Europe next year.

I live my life because I figured out that I CAN. My goal, right now, is to find the balance between contributing to those long-term goals while having fun right now.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

There is a hidden pool in Deception Falls: it's cool and green, even in summer, from all of the trees hanging over it; and the stones around it have been washed flat. There are only two or three fish that swim languidly, waiting for enough rain to be swept further downstream. That pool was something like an intense source of peace. It was also cold to the point of numbness when I got in - I couldn't pull myself back out without help!
