Dear friends, comrades, and strangers –
Hello! My name is Genna, and apparently you want to know a bit more about me and my blog. I hope I can be of some help here, but I dislike talking about myself, so this is definitely a difficult thing for me to write. For now, I am going to keep it short, sweet, and simple and (hopefully) prevent this from sounding like a terrible dating profile or family Christmas newsletter. Here goes…
Originally from New England, I lived my whole life in the same state, same town, and same house. For some reason I thought it was a good idea to go abroad for university (despite barely being able to spend a night away from home until my junior year of high school). Not only did I survive for three years in England, I absolutely loved it. Needless to say, I wasn’t quite ready to leave the UK by graduation. Instead, I decided to move even further north to Edinburgh to complete my MSc in Human Osteoarchaeology (think of it like the academic love child of Lara Croft and Temperance Brennen…basically).
Having been away from home for four years, I knew it was time to go back across the pond. And ~TADA~, I am now currently fulfilling another life goal: living in NYC. I have an apartment in Brooklyn with my sister, I have a ‘real job’, and I pay taxes. Despite that, I am still dreaming of the days I spent wandering around new countries and cities. Hopefully, this change of scenery will give me the chance to explore my own country with fresh eyes.
I really just want to keep my family and friends in the loop with what I am doing, but I figured someone else might get a kick out of what I get up to. If it involves cake, cats, travel, or books, I am totally there. What I should really say is if you think the adventures of a granny trapped inside the body of a twenty-something sound good, then welcome aboard.
That’s about it. Fingers crossed this ends up better than my first foray into the blogosphere (a single post on a blog which meant to chronicle my adventures on a high school exchange in England only to be thwarted when I realized they didn’t have wifi).
Until next time, make new friends! Don’t do drugs! Say please and thank you! Make good choices!
