I’m terrible at introducing myself. Recently at a business meeting I introduced myself as. “Hello, I’m Amy. Um, I work here..?”
I’ve never felt defined my job, but perhaps I haven’t found the right one yet. Work to live, don’t live to work. Am I right?
So for the purposes of introduction, I’ll try again to give you the gist of Amy Beth.
Hello, I’m Amy.
I like to write, and tell stories. I like to read about other people’s journeys. I like to take pictures of the things that bring me joy.
I like fitness, music and art in equal measure. I like to experiment with style with a buy less, wear more mentality. Fitness and the outdoors keeps me strong, and keeps me sane. Music puts into words and sounds things I can only feel and (sometimes) when I put my headphones in I like to pretend I am in a music video. I believe fear is the killer of creativity, and the monotony of routine is the source of unhappiness.
I am curious and energetic, social and independent. I love the comfort of home but I am always longing for the excitement of somewhere new.
Last year I turned thirty and with the birthday milestone also came itchy feet. I’ve been hit with a serious case of something I like to call Eat, Pray, Love Syndrome. I hear it’s fatal. I also sometimes refer to it as my third life crisis. So anyway I started this blog as a means of self expression, to share my travels and (mis)adventures.
