“What is life but one grand adventure”
Traveling is truly a blessing and one of my favorite things in life. I am fortunate to have been on many adventures from coast to coast. My biggest adventure so far was moving away from home to pursue my dream of working in the fashion industry. Fortunately, Adventures are a big part of life, but they don’t have to be as big as traveling to some far off place, they can be as simple as exploring your hometown with your besties or going to college for the first time. Adventures are a chance for you to get out of your comfort zone and completely grow as a person.
At the start of the summer, I traveled from Cleveland to Los Angeles for a school trip exploring the fashion industry in LA (Read more about my trip here and here). The biggest surprise of the trip was how much I changed and grew as a person while I was there. I don’t know what triggered such a change, but I felt like a new women once I returned home.
Speaking of adventure…Freshman year was one big, long adventure. Going into college, I knew virtually no one, except for a couple of people I met virtually. The crazy thing was how fast I started making friends and then I began creating some of my most cherished memories.
This summer I ventured to colorful Colorado with my family on one of our annual vacations. I love Colorado, because every time I visit I manage see something completely different. During this visit, we hiked six miles to a waterfall, soaked in the natural hot springs of Pagosa Springs, rode to the top of a mountain in a gondola in Telluride, and so much more (You can read more about my adventures here).
With sophomore year quickly approaching, I can’t contain my excitement for going back to school. Sure college is hard, but I love all the amazing adventures and memories I create. We will just have to see what new adventures I will have in the next academic school year. With all the memories I’ve created in the past year, it only makes me more anxious to see what’s next!
