According to the Merriam- Webster Dictionary the definition of the beautiful word expression is as follows: an act, process, or instance of representing in a medium (such as words). I adore this definition because people can express them selves through an infinite amount of mediums if you think about it. Some people write poetry, dance, paint, bake, build, sing, design, skateboard, ride bikes or even write in order to express themselves. These expressions are true passions that certain people were brave enough to follow. I have kept a journal for as long as I can remember and embarrassingly enough, I have kept them all! I have about 15 different journals going all the way back to 2nd grade. I always wrote in my journals as a way to escape and clear my head. It was the easiest way to express myself as I was always pretty shy. I am also an avid reader because I love words and the different ways they can be arranged. I enjoy the way a sentence can take you to a different place or make you feel something deeply. While in college, we were assigned many papers to write and I was in business school so the topics were somewhat dull. The thing my professors critiqued me on the most was that they could hear my voice through the papers almost like I was telling them a story, but what I needed to do was lay out the facts with resources. It was not until my senior year when I started to have professors and other students telling me they liked my style of writing. I think we were allowed more freedom at this time and I finally realized that I was passionate about writing. However, I wanted to write about topics that I loved and were also passionate about. So here I am. I have finally decided to start a blog. It will consist of the things I am passionate about like hiking, yoga, minimalism, living a healthy lifestyle, and most of all writing. It will be an explosion of passions.

I hope you find joy in my expression of words.
