Get to Know Me

My name is Samantha, but I go by Sam. Please, don't call me Sammy.

I started this blog because I wanted to invite others to adventure with me. My desire to explore motivates me to keep life exciting, even when I don't have a plane ticket in hand. When life gets boring or stale, I do something new and I write about it.

I graduated from Carthage College in the beautiful town of Kenosha with a B.A. in English. Throughout college, when people would ask me what I wanted to do with my degree, it was difficult for me to give a definite answer. I chose my degree because I am passionate about reading and writing, so that is what I would tell people when asked that question. Now, I confidently tell people I am a writer--among many other things. I am also an artist and a photographer, and I am constantly searching for creative outlets and new ways to be inspired.
