31 Day Blog Challenge Introduction

I decided to do a blog challenge for the month of May. I was looking on Pinterest for one that sounded interesting enough. I thought it may be a good idea for those of you who don’t know me to get to know me better as well as using this as a way to write a post every single day. I posted the challenge on my Instagram yesterday here if you’d like to know what to expect.

For Day 1, I am supposed to introduce myself and post a recent photo.2017-04-17 16.00.54

For those of you who don’t know, my name is Samantha. I go by Sam usually. I work full-time at a big corporation in a very technical field and spend the majority of my spare time working on this blog. I love to travel, and as my boyfriend lives in the UK, I do get to do so quite often. I love to learn about different cultures, go on adventures, go out to restaurants to try new food, and love being social. I also love to sit at home and read a good book, binge watch Netflix shows, or have movie marathons with popcorn and lots of sweets.

I find myself speaking in sarcasm more often than not. I love to laugh, at anything and everything. I have a lot of opinions and I’m usually not afraid to speak my mind. But there is a time and a place for everything. I have a tendency to really feel my emotions. But I also am pretty good at using humor as a defense mechanism. I’ve been told I’m neurotic, organized, and a bit of a control freak like Monica Gellar. Although I like to think that I have a sense of humor like Chandler Bing and a weirdness similar to Phoebe Buffay. If you do not understand these references, I don’t know what you’ve been doing with your life and you make me sad.

I’m actually not surprised that I was sorted into Hufflepuff at Hogwarts as their main characteristic is “loyalty.” Anyone who knows me, knows that I love my friends and family very deeply and would do anything for them. This is both a blessing and a curse as it can result in a lot of hurt at times. However, I wouldn’t give it up for anything. My friends and family are the most important aspects of my life and I wouldn’t be where I am today without them.

I believe it’s important to eat well and exercise regularly to keep yourself healthy but I do not agree with sacrificing all of your fun or limiting yourself to extremes to get a “perfect” body shape. Numbers are not important. If you feel good about yourself and know that you are keeping your body happy and healthy, then that’s all that matters. I stopped letting other people’s opinions of me govern how I treated and saw myself a long time ago and I am much better for it. I will say that my boyfriend has made me feel more confident about myself than ever before, and that is one of the many reasons I love him.

I’m not a simple person, I know how complicated I can be. I am always willing to admit when I’ve done something wrong and I’m constantly working on ways to better myself. I will be making mistakes until the day I die, but my goal is to make sure that I am always learning from them.

I am really looking forward to what this blog challenge will do for my blog, and myself, and hope you enjoy it as much as I do!


Please let me know if you have any specific questions in the meantime and I will do my best to answer them.

Much Love

I'm a bluntly honest person who loves to write about my life without a filter. I won't pretend that everything is perfect all the time nor will I shy away from telling you when things are perfect. Life has it's ups and downs and I'm here to try to make sense of mine. Publicly.
