About Me

IMG_4321

I was born and raised in Duluth, Minnesota, USA. After having grown up there most of my life with a few travel adventures across the country, I decided to move to the city and have a change of view. I now go to school at Hamline University and am in my third (Junior) year of Undergraduate. Originally, I had wanted to become a Forensic Anthropologist as I had spent my whole childhood digging in the dirt for “old bones and things.” When I arrived at Hamline and began my studies I became further obsessed with traveling. It began to feed my nomadic side even further. Now, instead of getting a job I love and hopefully make enough to travel the world on vacation days, I am now hoping to be paid to travel the world in general.

No edit (save for a black & white filter) of Lake Superior while at Wisconsin Point, USA. The lake side on the left was a very dark blue-green color, while the side on the right was calm and crystal clear. This is quite common to see at Superior, especially when you go to Duluth's Park Point where the water is always colder and angrier looking.

My new career goals involve my double major in Global Studies and German (with a possible minor in Anthropology). I spend most of my time either working, going to college, or having my nose in a few books at once. On top of my already lack of social life, I spend most of my free time training for the half marathons and other races I have a not-so-awful running addiction to.

Hamline Univeristy's Old Main building. Old Main is now used for offices and the President of HU, but it was the original university before HU grew. Hamline was Minnesota's first university built in 1854. Minnesota didn't become a state until 1858!

Currently, I am studying abroad (again) for a year at Universitaet Trier in Trier, Germany. I am beyond excited to be living here for the next year, as well as to start my research project for Global Studies. If I am given permission, maybe I will have the chance to post a few updates as to what my research will entail and how I am handling it. This is my third time here in this beautiful country and I plan to take advantage of being able to take the trains into the countries near by I have yet to see. If you have any suggestions as to where I should travel feel free to let me know! I love going to places I have never been and learning a little bit of the language and culture. I am an absolute travel-addict and I can never get enough of discovering new places and the people who live there (my anthropological side still exists).

I love hockey, traveling, listening Rock & Roll, and expressing my straight forward, honest opinions. This blog is mainly about whatever comes to mind, since I do love to sit around and think all the time. I plan to write about anything from what I have experienced, current issues today that I may want to see what others think of, or (in general) hand out tips and recommendations on the places I have been.
