The Beginning…

I’m not going to lie, I feel like a high school character in the beginning of an early 2000’s movie filled with teenage angst and stuck in a weird situation that she’s later going to blog about. As the camera zooms in and everything freezes, the narrator says, “You’re probably wondering how I ended up in this situation…” I’m not entirely sure why I feel like this character because obviously none of that is happening to me, but I think it’s just what I imagine when I think of blogging.

This is the first blog I have had and so far I’m lovin’ it! I enjoy writing about my passions, whether people find my entries interesting to read or not is up for question. But as long as I enjoy doing it, that’s all that matters! As I mentioned before, I enjoy writing about my passions. These include, travelling, hiking, and eating. I promise I’m not THAT boring and have many more like, horseback riding and music, but I decided to keep this particular blog at a minimum and just base it around those three.

Traveling, hiking, and eating are things I have always loved. My dad was a pipeliner, so growing up I traveled from job to job, state to state, with him and my mom. In 2009, my dad passed away from colon cancer, so the traveling came to a slow down. But my mom and I still occasionally took trips to different states. Now my mom works as a safety inspector on the pipeline, so she travels, but here I am stuck in college. Oh the joy:) I always complain about my education, like every young person does, but I am very lucky I am able to have such a great one. Anyway, my second passion, hiking. I. Love. Hiking. I love being out in nature; in the trees, in the desert, on a river or lake. I’m not too picky! If you ever need me for some odd reason, that’s where you can find me. So good luck. Last but certainly not least, eating. I would consider myself a professional eater. I love food, I love trying new foods, I love critiquing food. I could write a hundred blogs just on all the different kinds of chicken strips I have eaten.

This is the beginning of a new era for me! Blogging about the things I love, it should be interesting nonetheless.

Happy Hiking,
