Getting to Know Me

Be yourself; Everyone else is already taken.

— Oscar Wilde.

I have always wanted to start a blog. I love to write. I also love to travel, cook, play video games, DIY, participate in and watch sports, sing, take photos and videos, and drink beer! I remember, ages ago, I tried starting a blog. I was a young kid with a passion for writing but no discipline for forcing myself to actually make posts regularly. I have recently been searching for some sort of life purpose. I am not entirely sure that writing about my experiences and passions on a blog will constitute as fulfilling a life purpose but I feel like it’s a decent start.

My name is Jade and thanks for coming to my blog! In general, I would say this blog would be categorized as a lifestyle blog. I mean, that’s probably the easiest category to throw yourself into in order to be able to post basically anything you want, right? I plan on focusing mostly on travel and food, as those are two things that I am extremely passionate about.

My wanderlust is out of this world. Seriously, I would go to Mars if given the opportunity! I want to see everything and anything. I have traveled a bit (both solo and in groups) and I plan on definitely detailing my trips here. There is still so much more out there to experience and I can’t wait to share it with you.

Cooking is easily another love of mine. I didn’t start cooking until I was about 22 or 23. My Mom was severely sick from cancer and I wanted to help out any way that I could. Prior to this, I HATED cooking. I was like “Okay, you’re hungry? I can make you some cereal or some Ramen. What are you feeling?” I started looking up recipes on Pinterest so I could help out by feeding my family (my Aunt had come to stay with us to help out, too). The first recipe that I ever tried was an Italian stuffed peppers dish and OH MY GOODNESS, let me tell you…. It was amazing. From then on, I became obsessed with making delicious food and eventually even began coming up with my own dishes! I would love to share some of my favorite recipes with you!

My main focus will be on Travel and Food, but that doesn’t define my life. I want to share all of my experiences with you, from playing video games, to taking care of my pet rats, to singing karaoke, to doing some DIY home decor, to even discussing some things in life that can be a little messy and sometimes hard to talk about. I am extremely excited about starting this adventure. I hope you will join me!
