I have just graduated from Sonoma State University with a BA in Sociology. I have absolutely loved my time in wine country- it really doesn't get more beautiful than vineyards and endless green, but I am ready for the next adventure!

I am from the Bay Area and as much as I want to travel, I want to end up here later in life. I love that someone can go out for a different kind of ethnic food everyday of the week and still have endless options!

In July/August, I will be visiting one of my great friends in England where we will tour multiple castles, London, Paris, Paris Disneyland (we did meet at the Disney College Program anyway), and will be attending the 2012 LONDON OLYMPICS!

In September, I will be working as a civilian employee for an American military base in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany. I will be in the hotel indusutry working for Edelweiss Lodge and Resort. They say my backyard will be the Alps. I have my hiking boots packed already.

About two years ago I participated in the Disney College Program, working and living at Walt Disney World, Florida. It really started my love for traveling and throwing myself outside of my comfort zone. I highly recommend it to anyone who respects the Disney Company and wants to get their foot in the door or just wants a break from life- it was definitely both for me.

Slideshow: Letters, stamps, and a hobby

Slideshow: Autographs

The next thing on the "to-do" list for this blog is the slideshow. This will make it easier to show travel pictures, but for this experiment I had a hard time figuring out what to "slideshow." I could easily do graduation pictures, but lets be honest people love looking at photos to look for themselves. So here is a story instead...

When I was little I would check the mail every day. But not much mail came for a kid who didn't qualify for a credit card. I was so jealous of all the mail my mom and dad got everyday, but of course looking back all they were was bills and ads. Be careful what you wish for because now its my time for those bills and ads. Ugh! I started writing to people for Christmas and birthday presents for my friends and family hoping it was an unique enough gift to not end up in the Goodwill bag a year or maybe even an unfortunate month after.  I have written to some (okay being honest, many) for myself and the slide show is of the good ones.  Maybe one day they will go towards my kid's college tuition, but for now they are just for fun.
