*Me… in a Nutshell

The Blog – I want to see and experience the world. This blog has transformed into a place where I primarily record my travel moments and ramble about sporadic life stuff in-between. You’ll also find the occasional rant or arbitrary amusement of mine sprinkled around.

The Basics – I live in San Diego, California. After growing up in a frozen tundra known as the Midwest, I spent a week visiting a friend in sunny Palm Springs, and moved to California two months later. I went to nursing school, but switched my major to Finance. I stuck with my college job… banking; despite sucking at math. My passion is new places, people and things… and I can’t wait to move abroad. But until then… I travel and soak up everything I can.

The Good –  I adore… traveling, inside jokes, red wine, books, a good view, guilty pleasures, feeling awe, accents, coffee, uncontrollable laughter, European history,  kisses, lazy days, inside jokes, football, caramel chocolates, acoustic music,  art, random moments, all things Italian, pedicures, rollercoasters, and keeping in touch with old friends.

The Bad – I procrastinate, I have the patience of a toddler, I’m scared of birds and tornadoes, I have a short attention span, clutter stresses me out, I hate being ignored, my voice carries, regret is one of my biggest fears, I don’t like beer, I avoid scary movies or sad endings, and I have mild OCD about random things like not watching a movie before I’ve read the book.

So, yeah, that’s me in a nutshell. Here’s hoping you still want to join me along the way! 😉

  1. Hey T-dawg!!!! Ang sent me your blog… I feel like I now know a famous person!! I thought only like Perez Hilton blogged. I’m so impressed by your thoughts, expression and passions!! Talk to you very soon… oh yeah, are you coming home for the wedding?!?!? I heard a little rumor you might not. How the hell am I going to convince you to move home, if we can’t get you here for Ang’s wedding?!? BTW, a beautiful home right next door to me is going to be coming up for sale very soon… :>

  2. Your blog is just fabulous – way up there with Jon Bear’s. I think I’ll go hang my head in shame. Your photos are fantastic, and the words are great. Fellow lover of things European, I salute you (with a glass of nice, full bodied red of course).
    Cheers, Beejay

    • Thank you! I am hopeless behind and have many new adventures to add.

      *One can never go wrong with Europe and/or a glass of red. Cheers to that! 😉

  4. Bonjour! Thanks for the sub to my blog. I actually read through your posts and I must say I’m impressed by your travels (also reading Don Quixote!). Italy looks freaking unbelievable. Prague too. As soon as I get my degree, I’ll be following your example, that’s for sure. ANyway, good luck with your travels and stay safe.

    • Your blog cracked me up… first Frederick and then the post about the French!! I agree by the way… they found a great way to live life. Good luck with finishing your degree. (hopefully sooner than later so you can get on the road.
      P.S. Don Quixote is way more amusing than I thought it would be!

  5. I LOVE the layout of your blog and when I recently started my blog I envisioned it would look like yours. What theme are you using and how did you get your photos to streamline like a gallery?

    Oh, and keep up the good work! I love your writing style 🙂

  6. Just stumbled onto your blog and absolutely love your experiences abroad and your photography. Fell in love with your wordpress blog theme and now I’m considering changing mine! Keep up the AWESOME work. As a fellow (heavy) procrastinator, I say take it easy and don’t be too hard on yourself. “Why do today when you can do tomorrow,” I always say (learned that while living briefly in the south).

    • Thanks for your kind words! I like that motto, a good reminder when stressing about getting things done that CAN be put off. LOL

      P.S. I feel in love with this theme when I found it too. 🙂

  7. Hello! Do you use Twitter? I’d like to follow you if that would be okay. I’m undoubtedly enjoying your blog and look forward to new posts. agadebbddcak
