Cheers from Sarah!
I've officially been in Edinburgh for a month now! So I decided it was time to properly introduce myself to the blogging and Instagram worlds, two worlds that I've lived in for a little while now, in addition to my physical world of Scotland. These are the things I'd like you to know about me.
Things you already know:
My name is Sarah. I currently live in Edinburgh, Scotland, but I normally live in Greenville, SC. I am taking classes at Edinburgh Napier University and interning at a theatre. I love books, blogging, and breakfast. I like to plan, and I like to travel. I am happy with a warm cup of coffee/tea/hot chocolate and another person. I teach painting at Vino & Van Gogh. I love to take pictures, and I also love punny captions.
Things you might not know:
I used to figure skate. I am obssesed with gelatin in all forms, especially gummy bears and Twizzlers. I went to boarding school for high school. I love Palmetto Girls State and Orientation Staff. I've played the viola for 10 years. I prefer wearing dresses over wearing pants. I love to eat at Tandem Creperie in Travelers Rest. I want to live in a masquerade ball. I do swing and contra dancing, and I went to a ceildh dance the other weekend in Edinburgh. I want to eat bagels for the rest of my life.
Things I want to improve:
I want to be a better blogger. I want to connect with more creatives in Greenville and in Edinburgh. I want to know how to combat stress. I want to be more flexible. I want to travel to more places. I want to be inspired. I want to find my career path. I want to learn about other people.
Things that matter to me:
I value honesty and trust. I believe that art is everywhere and imbedded into our daily lives. I want to capture every moment, whether it is in my head or on camera. I write to figure out who I am. I know that being vulnerable is the key to relationships. I treasure the quality time with everyone in my life. I love meeting new people.
Things I want to continue:
I want to constantly grow. I want to smile to make someone's day. I want to make lasting connections. I want to motivate other people to be the best that they can be. I want to teach others to realize the value of reflection. I want to write something that encourages someone else to take action.
Lucky Strike of the Day: I visited Stockbridge, a neighborhood of Edinburgh today, and I had my first official Scottish breakfast, complete with bacon, blood pudding, eggs, tomatoes, and toast.
