Hi! My name’s Karen, I’m 22 years old and I’m a Junior Public Relations major at Kean University. With my Public Relations degree, I hope to work in the realm of digital marketing and advertising/branding. I started this blog a little over a year ago, with the hope that I can reach people, near and far, and talk about things that almost everyone goes through.
I have always loved writing about anything that comes to mind. Which is no surprise when I found out about blogging on wordpress. I love drafting new blog posts for all of you. I have such a variation of posts on here, but what I normally blog about are primarily lifestyle and travel hacks, followed by some occasional mental health topics and things I stumble upon that are worth talking about.
I’ve had my bout with depression and anxiety. But ever since I’ve recovered from it and I can say that it is a battle worth fighting.
If there’s one thing about me and my writing style, it’s that I take everything that I have learned and try to spin it into a lesson that I have learned and will relay to all of you.
I have gone to not one, not two, but three colleges! My road to education has been a convoluted one, but I have gained so much clarity from each stage and I have come out of this situation learning more about myself and stronger than ever.
I’ve traveled to Aruba, Australia, Bermuda, Canada, Colombia, and St. Maarten, just to name a few places.
I will say this though, while I do talk about a lot on my blogs, I try to use gender-neutral pronouns when I refer to people in my anecdotes and I stay away from all things political and controversial. You will not see me voice my opinions on anything that will most likely have me dragged online. I like to maintain harmony on my site, in a world where there is not. So my one rule for you, as my reader, is to not comment anything that is rude or controversial on any of my posts.
When I am not blogging, I like to spend time with my family, go out shopping, read a good book, and go on adventures with friends. I am a very outgoing person, so the way I write in my posts is how I really am in person.
I live at home with my mom, dad, aunt and younger brother. For me, family is everything. I am very close to my family and I will refer to them in some of my posts. To me, they are the people who played such a huge role in the person I am today. Just about everything I know about my culture and life itself, is because of them.
As far as my style is concerned, I love wearing make up and going all out in nice clothes, but I also like to relax in a pair of leggings and a long sleeved shirt, there’s never really an in between, it’s either I go all out or I go home haha.
As a creative person, I have such an appreciation for all things art related. Art, films, books and music are one of my favorite topics to talk about. From time to time, I will talk about a song (on here) that has multiple meanings or a movie that left me looking at things differently. On here, I’ll talk about the books that gave me more clarity on things I wasn’t sure of. I really enjoy listening to music and more than half the time I’ll listen to a song because of its lyrics. I love finding out what the message is embedded in certain songs, it builds so much credibility for the artist and for what/who they represent.
My whole goal with this blog is to reach out to people who have been-or currently are- in similar situations. I get that my blog won’t have all the answers, but if I helped you live a better life or made you look at something a totally different way, then I have done my job as a blogger.
I have nothing but love for all of you and just know that all of my posts come from a place of love, acceptance and understanding. In whatever you set out to do (just as long as it is positive and is not to harm yourself or others), I am behind you 100%.
For all of my adventures, to catch up on what I’m doing, or where I’m traveling to next, Follow my Instagram!
Sending love and light your way,
