The Person Behind the Blog:
Hello there, I’m Britta. I’m a twenty-something Minnesota transplant to Washington, DC. I grew up in the Midwest, moved to Thailand for six months, and shortly after decided to chase my dream to live and work in DC.
I’m a teacher, a yogi, an avid reader, a pescetarian, and a connoisseur of good (preferably dark) beer.
I’m a dreamer and a wanderer: part homebody, part traveler; an introvert with extreme extroverted tendencies (I identify as a Myers-Briggs INFJ). I’m a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP) who believes strongly in the gentle but powerful strength of sensitivity. I’m an optimist at heart, and I believe great things come from simplicity, kindness, and compassion.
This virtual space has been a lot of things: a sanctuary of self-expression as I continue to learn and grow, a place to practice creative writing and showcase amateur photography, and an area to document my travels. It’s a little bit of everything, and it has changed direction as I have grown. Currently, I have no schedule; I write when I feel the need, when I want to.
Welcome to my little space. Join me if you please.
