Adventure (ad-ven-cher) (noun): an exciting experience that is typically a bold, sometimes risky, undertaking.

Hello readers, buckle up because you're in for a journey! Welcome to this wonderful blog of ME.

But, who are you?

Good question - I'm not sure I would be able to wrap that up in a blog post, or even many blog posts for that matter. I guess the first word that comes to mind is adventurer. I love a lot of things - learning new tech, discovering new places, trying out new places to eat, getting into new fitness routines etc. but don't see myself fitting into a specific "bucket" thus this blog wouldn't be just a "tech blog" or a "travel blog" or a "food blog" or a "fitness blog". It's simply going to be a mix of all things - all things that make me who I am.

I started this blog for many reasons that I thought I'll share.

1. Finding a hobby outside of coding

For those of you who don't know, I am a software engineer and I absolutely love it. Therefore, between work and side projects, I code ALOT. I wanted this blog to be a place of creativity for me outside of coding (although to be honest, it's slowly becoming another side coding project - when I started looking into how to launch a blog, I started discovering all this cool tech for blogs and oops I can't help it).

Any who, I have tons of photos and videos archived away and I really want to get back into editing and share all that with you guys.

2. Keeping in touch with friends.

I am a die hard Chicago girl - born and raised. After college, I moved to Raleigh, North Carolina for a job while others moved back home or moved elsewhere for a job as well. As an adult, it's getting harder and harder to keep in touch with all my friends since everyone is spread out across the country. I'm starting this blog in the hopes that I can share my experiences with my friends as if they are experiencing them with me.

3. Go out and explore

Do you guys ever live somewhere and been meaning to check out something locally but procrastinate on doing so because you can go whenever because you live here and then end up NEVER checking it out? Yup. Me too. Well having this blog gives me the perfect excuse to get my butt up and go out and DO IT! (all while being able to share recommendations with you guys - win win!)

4. Making new connections.

Moving to a new place is hard. Especially one where you don't really know anyone. Hopping into this blogging community in hopes I can connect with both local bloggers here in Raleigh and those of you afar!

5. Cute coffee shops!

I'm a sucker for cute coffee shops and this project here gives me an excuse to check out all the local shops to fuel me up on caffeine while I work on content.

Adventure doesn't always have to be about travel. As stated in the definition above, it can be used to define any experience. Starting this blog is an adventure in itself for me and I'm excited to see what it will evolve to. I want to take you all on this ride to share all my experiences and for you guys to share new things with me.

Once again, welcome to this wild ride, it's about to be a fun one ๐Ÿ˜‰

Put ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ป + โ˜•๏ธ together and ya girl is happy to announce that she is finally LAUNCHING HER BLOG ๐Ÿฅณ I feel like the word blog sometimes has a bad connotation - this isnโ€™t about me being an โ€œinfluencerโ€, this is simply a website about myself as a means of sharing (my thoughts, knowledge, art, etc). Most of my experiences I post via IG but hoping that having a blog will allow me to share more in depth. Why Iโ€™m starting this journey is on my first post - click the link in bio to find out! โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ € โ€” ๐Ÿ–ฅ: Link in bio โ €โ €
