Well it looks like I am the last one to begin my blogging experience so I figured it was about time to grace everyone with my first post.
I guess I'll start with the basics. I was born in Bridgeport, Connecticut and am the eldest of 2 children. I live in a town called Shelton until I was 9 and moved to Kansas due to my mother's job. It was here in Kansas where I pretty much grew up. I met Ryan shortly after moving here and after getting over our unknown hatred of each other we quickly became friends. That is where everything started.
It wasn't until High School that I met up with Nithin and Mike though I am pretty sure I met Mike before then through our Temple, we just never really hung out until then. Our high school career consisted of many stupid adventures to keep us all entertained as we tried to have some fun in the boring state of Kansas. Though I was never able to get any of them interested I too (like Brandle) took and interest in Scouting. I started with Tiger Cubs in Kindergarten and went all the way through to the destinction of Eagle.
It was Junior year of High School when I first left these United States. I decided to take a 2 month study abroad trip to Israel (though not knowing how to speak Hebrew at all) and had the most tremendous time of my life. I was able to see and do so many things that most people could only dream of doing. I guess I was a lucky one.
After that things went back to normal, boring as it is, and College came around the corner. This is where we met Brandle and though we didn't know it at the time, our fates where sealed. After a few years of friendship we all decided to take the greatest journey of all
Since I am an Anthropology major, I have always been interested in other cultures and when I heard about a possible trip around the world I just could not pass it up. So here I am, about to go on the trip of a lifetime with 4 close friends. I am counting the days.
