I started this blog just a few months after my college graduation from the University of Illinois in 2009. By that time I had already learned that life after college was not going to be what I expected. To relieve the monotony of a minimum-wage job, I started writing. That was also about the time I started practicing in the circus, and planning my first solo trip abroad. I’m a self proclaimed life-long learner, and this blog has seen me through grad school, multiple jobs and internships, and several foreign countries. It’s become an occasional chronicle of my experiences and the things I learn along the way.
These days, I’ve moved from Illinois to Texas, finally working in a field that I love – history. Consequently, much of what I write about is history, travel, and interesting things or places that I come across.
