starting anew


When I look back at the changes that have taken place in my life over the past year and a half, I am truly amazed. Not only has my life changed significantly, but so have I. I have learned and grown in more ways than one. I've switched schools. I've made new friends, and lost some, too. I've started new jobs. I've learned to work hard, celebrate my achievements, and accept my failures. I've laughed a little, and cried a lot. And through all of this, I have become a new person. I am still Anna; I still love sunshine and coffee and shoes, but I have begun to look at the world in a new light. This blog is a reflection of that. 

College is a time of soul-searching, and I have done my fair share. Though I still am not certain of who I am or what I want to be, I have realized that my soul is a wandering one. I was born with a perpetual case of wanderlust; I have an insatiable need to travel, and an uncontrollable desire to explore, create and discover new things. But through this realization, I have also begun to recognize that it is okay to stay in one place, too. 

It took me quite a while to be content where I am, and I have to admit that I am still not fully at that point. But while I was born with a wandering soul, I was blessed with a creative soul as well.Though it is not always possible for me to travel the world at my leisure, I have the ability to channel my pent up energy through creativity. Whether it be fashion, art, food, or words, The Wandering Soul will be a place for me to allow my imagination to run free, even when I cannot.
