I’ve never truly introduced myself on my blog, and since I’m halfway through my third year of writing it, I thought it was about time! Especially as the school year rolls into full-swing, I’ll be writing more personal blog posts and sharing more of my between-travels life and I want everyone to know me a little better.
I found a Get To Know Me Tag (for YouTube, but I’m using it anyway!) and I think this will be a fun way to start it off. Below are 30 get-to-know-me questions that I had a blast answering!
Get To Know Me Tag Questions
1. Where did you grow up?
In the cutest town in Indiana – Chesterton! It’s right on Lake Michigan and I’m very proud of it.
2. Where do you currently live?
I’ve recently moved to Fort Wayne, Indiana. Check out my last blog post to read all about it!
3. Who is your first best friend?
Alyssa and I met in high school, roomed together in college, and now we’re both middle school teachers! You may recognize her from our many adventures, specifically the summer we spent in Colorado together.
4. How tall are you?
5. Dogs or Cats?
Cats. I have one! Her name is Lily and she’s 14!
6. Favorite moment throughout high school?
I’m not sure I’d count this as my favorite moment, but it’s one of my favorite accomplishments. I completed a 30 books in 30 days challenge (back when I used to write a blog about books!)
7. What year were you born?
8. Are you in/have you gone to college?
I graduated from Ball State University last December. Chirp Chirp! I earned a Journalism Education degree with a minor in Women’s & Gender Studies.
9. What is your favorite drink?
10. What is your spirit animal and why?
I decided to take a quiz to find out, and my results were a snake.
The snake animal meaning is powerfully connected to life force and primal energy. In many cultures, it is revered as a powerful totem representing the source of life. When the snake spirit animal appears in your life, it likely means that healing opportunities, change, important transitions, and increased energy are manifesting.
11. You’re wearing perfume, what scent is it?
12. Tea or Coffee?
13. What are your life goals?
One of them was to graduate and start a job I love, which I just accomplished! I’m teaching middle school this year and loving it so far.
Another goal of mine is to visit all 50 states before I turn 30. I’d like to visit a new country every year, I’d like to become fluent in Spanish, and I’d like to get a book traditionally published. I have may goals!
14. What sports do you play or have you played?
I don’t play any now, but I played soccer every season growing up.
15. Have any books you read changed your life?
Too many to count! My favorite book is “The Heart’s Invisible Furies.”

Stephen & Jess from Flying the Nest

I fell in love with seafood when my parents took us to Myrtle Beach and I had a blackened tuna sandwich for the first time. After that I would try different seafood and I slowly started liking it. My mom used to live near Annapolis and always talked about Maryland Blue Crab so one year I traveled all the way there just to try it. It was delicious!
28. What are your morning, evening routines?
I don’t really have any specific routines, although I like to make sure I have plenty of time to get up in the morning. I like to hit the snooze at least once before getting out of bed. I usually fall asleep watching The Office or Friends.

You wouldn’t know that when I was in high school and college I self published two books! They’re a middle grade adventure couplet about a twin brother and sister who are separated after a disastrous war and have to find each other again… while also hiding from ‘the beast.’
Well, there’s a snippet about me! It’s just a first glance, but there’s plenty more to come! Comment below what you want to know about me, whether it’s related to travel or not.
