Wait. What is Blithesome Brunette?
This lifestyle blog was created to be a place where I can share my life as a wanderlusting, adventurous & Catholic twenty-something with the rest of the world. I strongly believe that I was given this love for writing and sharing experiences and advice, so that I could positively influence those around me. I want to connect other Millennials out there and let them know that we aren’t alone. There’s a meaning behind all of this craziness.
(P.S. I post twice a week!)
Okay. So…who are you?
I’m Amanda and I’m currently a senior in college, graduating in May. I will hopefully be moving onto my teaching internship year next year, in a Spanish classroom. I’ve been blogging inconsistently for a few years, and have just started to take it seriously. I find that it’s almost an online diary of sorts, one that can really move people, if you do it right. I also want this blog to be a place where people can come to find genuine content, because there’s just too much out there that isn’t.
Studying the Spanish language (which I LOVE) sparked a passion for traveling, and I have diagnosed myself with a major case of wanderlust. (I probably have Web MD to thank for the self-diagnosis problem I have.) So far, I’ve only been to a few places, but I plan to change that the more time goes on. As for other things that inspire me, the list is endless. However, a few of my favorites are photography, fitness, cooking and, of course, music.
So…as for the name? I chose Blithesome Brunette because Blithesome means happy, carefree and I feel that’s something us Millennials/Twenty-Somethings embody more than other generations. We aren’t afraid to go out there and live our lives happily & to the fullest. As for the Brunette, that’s just my hair color. Honestly, I just wanted an alliteration (shout out to all those English-language-lovers out there!) and something that connected the blog back to myself.
