Since then, I have amassed quite a few interests and experiences. I was already on my way into the military. Later,I decided to teach myself Arabic because it was unusual and no one would expect it. I deployed to Uzbekistan (a country most people I knew had never heard of nor could they locate). I've flown in an MH-53 Pave Low helicopter, been ziplining over a waterfall, spent 3 weeks in Uganda, fell in love with rock climbing almost 2 years ago now, and a few days ago, I rappelled off a 14 story building - twice.
I have never thought of myself as super-adventurous. I never even played sports in high school (I don't count the one season each of track and cross-country). But somehow that one comment catalyzed me to become someone who decides to do those types of things.
At the same time, I'm also a fairly girly-girl who prefers dresses and heels over pants and tennis shoes. I love fashion, follow all the famous girls on Instagram, and have VIB Rouge status at Sephora.
I like being something of a little paradox. I like surprising people. I like not being boring.
And I hope my new blog, Powder and Chalk, isn't boring either.
