Ok, so I wouldn’t go as far as calling myself a scaredy cat, but it worked for the title!! Just go with it…

If you’ve seen my other blog pages, you would most likely discover my study abroad blog.  I studied abroad twice (that’s right folks, I’m a double dipper!), first for a semester in Erfurt, Germany and secondly for a faculty-led Spring Break trip to Costa Rica! I LOVE to travel and explore new places. So far I’ve been to 9 countries and 21 states, but I dream of seeing so much more!

I am currently a senior at the University of Mary Washington and I have no idea what I want to do with my life after college, career wise. If it were up to me, I would travel for a living, but I need to find a way to fund all of my future adventures…

Cooking, gardening, rock climbing, photography, and volleyball, in no particular order, are other hobbies of mine.  I love taking pictures, but editing them is another ordeal in itself.

Music and movies are fun forms of entertainment when I feel like being lazy. I like most types of music, except for Country. Comedy, Adventure, and Action movies are my kind of movie! I’m not a big fan of Rom-Coms or Scary movies, and with that being said, we’ll see how this course goes, since the theme is Horror… What did I get myself into!?
