My friends call me Shar.

I write often, but have never kept an actual blog. So here goes…

I’m 25 years old and a college graduate with a BA in Literature and a minor in History. I’ve found that I’m drawn irresistibly to the world of academia and have long ignored the more practical fields (I still suspect my family is disappointed I didn’t choose medicine or business). In any case, books had always been my first love, and I decided to remain faithful.

In my two years between degrees (currently in DC working on my Masters in Museum Education), I have worked in both the travel and museum industries. What I love about both is that they offer you the chance to expand your comfort zone and expose yourself to worlds apart from yours. Across time and across the globe, different fashions, cuisines, art, architecture, music and literature will each tell you a different story about the people who use those outlets to express themselves. And any interaction with these stories allow you to see the world differently and so allow you to recreate yourself. These stories and expressions of self are what I mean to collect and share with you.
