My name is Valeria, I’m a small town gal living in this big crazy world and have finally decided to bring my “passion project” to life. I say small town gal because I was raised in good’ole Indiana on the boarder of Kentucky. Yes I lived surrounded by corn fields. Yes I love country music. But… that’s not all I love, which is why I am blogging. I am blogging for me, for the things I love and to share my experience walking, climbing, and running around this world.
I recently graduated California State University Northridge in…GIS!! What’s GIS you ask? In short, it’s map making, in long, Geographic Information Systems. After graduating, I got a mapping job in the tech industry and moved to San Diego, and this is where my blogging adventure begins. I am so excited to discover more of this city and the world in general and share it with you!
Since I am a blogging newbie, I want to mention what my blog will be about and the topics I will cover. As my pages suggest, I will be covering:
This is a blog research and tips section. As I am just starting out blogging, I’m doing a lot of research, so this page helps me share what I find helpful and the things I’ve learned while blogging. It’s not big yet, but hopes is that it will be!
Places and Spaces
This will be the section where I’ll be “walking, climbing, and running around this world” and to that I will also add EATING! Love to eat, who doesn’t?? So yes, all of those adventures will be going under that page (gosh I am so tempted to call it tab! Is that right? Is that wrong?)
Hellooooo Makeup! Hellooooo Sweaters! Hellooooo Nail Polish! If you haven’t already guesses it, in this section I will be covering nothing but fashion stuff that I’m into/ I’ll be trying. I loved getting dressed up a little girl and as a big girl, nothing has changed. I find it exciting. Now, I am not a huge make up person, I believe in natural beauty so that section might be quite small…I think. We’ll see. I know what won’t be small! Nails! I love to do my nails and I am not afraid to admit that I love looking at nail photos on Pinterest, they always look so cool!! So maybe I will also try being fancy like so.
Now I hope culture is the right word to use, but under this section I will be writing about movies, books (books!!) I love books and possibly music. Under this page, I’ll write about just a few cultural items that I come across. And either LOVE or HATE. IF ANYONE KNOWS WHERE I CAN GET FREE IMAGES OF MOVIES, BOOKS, AND ARTISTS, PLEASE HELP A SMALL TOWN GAL FIND THEM 🙂
I don’t know how else to call this section, it might be full of random “life stuff” like date ideas, blogging experience, health things I am trying out, staying in shape, etc. “Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re going to get.” I think that quote is quite appropriate here, this page will have posts that don’t belong to a particular category but still need to be shared!
Oh and since I am 25, here are five things about me!
- I speak Russian! Privet! Priyatna Poznakomitsa 🙂
- I love flowers, plants, succulents, trees, nature
- I love reading! Books, articles, academic journals, I wish I could read for a living!
- Favorite pastime: laying in bed in the midst of warm covers, oh yeah
- I love cooking and trying out new recipes
