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 an avid reader and a self-proclaimed history nerd, a vegetarian (okay a pescetarian, but a lot of people don’t know what that means), and a connoisseur of good beer and anything that includes Jameson Whiskey. I also love to yoga and have developed an affinity for running over the past couple years (which is rather surprising, given that the mile run was my arch nemesis throughout my elementary and middle school years).
I’m a dreamer and a wanderer: part homebody, part traveler; an introvert with extreme extroverted tendencies (Myers-Briggs type, INFJ). I would classify myself as highly sensitive, but I don’t let that stop me from seizing opportunities as they come.
Where will I end up in this life thing? Beats me, but I’m excited for the ride.
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, an area to document my travels, and an entity where I can force myself to keep writing in this increasingly busy, non-stop world we live in. Honestly, I don’t know what to classify this blog as–is it a lifestyle blog? A travel blog? A personal blog? A creative writing blog? In reality, it’s a little bit of all of that…and more importantly, it’s 100% me–my thoughts, my dreams, my worries, you name it. I don’t have any particular direction here, so expect anything. Really, anything. I can be painstakingly honest here and I don’t hold back. I write what I feel and feel what I write.
