Hey, What's Up, Hello.

Updated: Aug 5, 2019

Hi, I'm Sarah. This is my first blog post, ever. Most of what you need to know about me is scattered around the rest of my website, but I can fill in a few gaps.

Trying to get my life together in Georgetown, Malaysia.

"I am not lucky. You know what I am? I am smart. I am talented. I take advantage of the opportunities that come my way and I work really, really hard.

Don't call me lucky. Call me a bad ass." -Shonda Rhimes

Who Am I?

I am Baltimore born and bred, but have recently planted my roots in Nashville, Tennessee. My free time is spent in coffee shops, parks, and local restaurants. I love rainy days and oversized sweaters. My favorite type of music is anything that makes me feel something. My favorite place to be is the airport-- I am either embarking on a new adventure or coming home to the people I love.

Angel's Point, Los Angeles

I'm an only child, but my friends are my family, so it doesn't really feel that way. I've had several jobs over the years, most of them in restaurants and bars. I have a dachshund sheltie mix who is secretly the key to my heart. My biggest fear is the open ocean; I find movies about getting stranded at sea scarier than any horror film. My bucket list of places to travel is so overwhelming I won't even get started on it. Just know that, wherever you want to go, chances are... I'm totally down to come.

So far, I think I'm doing a pretty good job at faking this whole "adult" thing. I'm not quite there yet, but slow and steady seems to be working for me. I'm definitely still a hot mess, but somehow I'm making it through.

Why Do I Write?

I am looking to tell stories that matter to people who care. I believe there is a story to be told in every day. My interests range from fashion to true crime to international affairs. I feel just as inspired when I pass a girl on the street with incredibly innovative style as I do when I meet a guy who built houses for children in Peru. I am driven by the beauty in humanity, however it presents itself.

Writing gives me a type of freedom that allows me to explore so many different fields of interest. Its my one constant in my day to day life.

"The true alchemists do not change lead into gold; they change the world into words." -William H. Gass

My goal is to write things that impact society for the better. I want to bring about awareness and change but I also want to entertain and enlighten. Reading and writing were my favorite hobbies as a kid, and I've recently learned that five year old me knew best. I let writing fall to the wayside a bit, but now I know its what I'm meant to do.


To give you a little more of an idea about me, here's what I'm currently:

Reading: Girl In Pieces by Kathleen Glasgow

Watching: Stranger Things Season 3, Sex Education (UK), The Bachelorette, Gossip Girl (for the 4th time), Riverdale

Listening To: Lizzo, Jordan Davis, Hozier, My Morning Jacket, Straight Up With Stassi podcast

Loving: Planning upcoming trips to visit friends

Hating: That its not fall yet

Anything Else?

I think that's basically what there is to know about me, for now.

Thanks for joining the ride with me!
