Part 2

I start college on Monday.

Yup. You read me correctly. I’m going back to college.

And yes, I am scared out of my mind.

If you don’t recall I started this blog in January/February 2014. One month after I left college. I was sad, confused, lonely, and scared. Going to that school was the absolute worst experience I’ve ever had. I’m scared to death to fall into that mental state again.

I think I was numb. In lack of a better example; it’s like I’m a recovering drug addict, I’ve been in recovery for a while, and I’m terrified to relapse. Except instead of drugs, its depression and I’m scared that going back to school might be my trigger to relapse.

Except one very important thing is very different.

I am not that girl anymore. I am happy and social. Unfortunately, I am still confused about almost everything in life. And don’t get me wrong, I’m still scared. But I’ve learned that just because I’m afraid doesn’t mean I get to chicken out. I have to be bold and I can’t let fear stop me.

So, here I go. Wide-eyed, ready, and trembling in my boots.

Wish me luck, It’s my first day of college part 2!


Adventure’s calling.

If there is one quote that describes my life it would be “I go to seek a great perhaps” by John Green.

I love adventure.

I’m one of those people that just wants to travel in life.

“I haven’t been everywhere but it’s on my list” is another quote that I really love.

Because its true.

Now I have been to France:


And Tanzania (in Africa):


Isn’t this photo awesome! I went on a safari. It was terrifying and amazing to be so close to one of God’s amazing creations. Side note: Elephants aren’t friendly and I’m slightly afraid of them now.

I have so many places to explore, this world is too amazing for me to stay in Boringtown, Michigan.

What cool places have you guys been to? Where should my next adventure take me.

Now I know my title is “Diva on a DIME.” and to clarify – I have not stumbled upon millions of dollars in the past three weeks. I’m still scrambling for pennies.

I do; however, save my money. I spent $1,400 total for my trip to Tanzania. I took cheap and slightly scary airlines.

Sidenote: Ethiopian Airways has very nice flight attendants but their planes could use some work.

I felt like I had to justify that bit of information.

If I was paid to travel I would so do it.

I can’t stand this beautiful mitten state anymore. I was so lucky to be brought up in such a beautiful area in the world. But it’s time for me to go see the the rest of it.

So, Im going to Orlando Saturday! I’ll take a million pictures!

See you soon,

love ya!
