I am a teacher, a traveler, and most recently, a blogger. I believe that laughter and stories are a part of our everyday life, therefore, I embrace each moment as though its a new adventure that I will soon be able to share.

I am writing a blog, which is a compilation of stories. These stories are the way I have chosen to remember them (an important detail). I have fulfilled a lot of goals that I had hoped to accomplish by 30, but something happened along the way that I had never anticipated. In my 30 years, I have had 30 roommates. Some came and left quickly, while others lingered. Some are forever friends and then others, well, let’s just say we tried. This blog of stories is a mishmash of moments with these 30. Some of these moments still leave me puzzled, while others continue to make me smile.

My mom and her roommate shared a comfy space and were slowly getting to know their neighbors in the building. A friendly woman lived beside them and a bit of a shaggy fellow lived below....more

There comes a time in every girl’s life when she desperately longs to be a princess. Whether fulfilled through family trips to Disneyland or flowing prom dresses, the wanna-be-princess appears in us all at some point of our lives. This is very true in 27’s life. She was bestowed with princess nicknames at a very young age, and the desire to live among shimmering jewels with gold crowns and elaborate kingdoms has never escaped her....more
