As most of you know about my previous blog, I decided it was time to start an entirely new one based on where my life is taking me now. I am no longer an au pair in Sydney, Australia or a student at the University of Oregon, nor is my life as flexible for me to travel as much as I used to. I am in that so called stage of the quarter life-mid 20’s crises.

Yes, I said it. And everyone would be lying if they said they hadn’t felt it at some point or another. Whether right after college, in between jobs, living situations, financially or in and out of relationships. Well, I am smack dab right in the middle of it all and this blog will mostly be about these humorous, adventurous, silly, amazing, crazy adventures we call life, ranging anywhere from traveling, to positive psychology and lifestyle photography.

I am currently working at a non-profit organization for individuals with disabilities in employment path services in Oregon, in the process of moving to Texas, and an eager future graduate student to God who knows which school! I am leaning towards Baylor, University of Texas in Austin or University of Houston with a focus in school psychology, but they say, if you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans, because life doesn’t always take you where you expect and I am learning to be okay with that.

I currently reside in Independence, Oregon with my fiancé, we’re getting married in July before packing up and moving to Texas to go to school, get a new job and enjoy the sunshine and amazing food. Hey, life’s all about the transition here, right?

On my days off I try to find a new hike, new waterfall or search for the nearest lake or ocean to clear my head and breathe in the fresh, tree filled, Oregon air. And when I’m not doing that, I am either running, reading, drinking tea or discovering new music on the reg.

I am on a new health kick, which I don’t want to call a diet plan, but a healthy living plan because I am keen to implement this type of lifestyle for as long as I possibly can. I believe in mind over matter and most of these posts will be about that, positive psychology, nature, hiking, exploring, traveling and a few good tunes for inspiration, sprinkled with a few rants here and there when the time permits.

For those that followed me on my last blog, this will be quite similar but with a different environment and me, B. In transition. Which everyone should implement, a transition to a better you, always.

Enjoy!

  1. Welcome to Portland! My (ad hoc) organization recently landed a grant where we are looking at “Trail mapping” wild trails in the city. You may want to take a look at this: http://www.accesstrails.org.I, like you, am always in the search for a new place to hike, the wilder the better! Unfortunately, there isn’t enough information on trails to know if I can use them with a wheelchair. That is why I started this project! I hope you’re enjoying this beautiful spring day!
