About Me

Hello there!  My name is Erin.  


I grew up in a small town north of Boston with my parents, two younger sisters, and a number of pets throughout the years.   My family can be crazy sometimes but with 30+ cousins and a number of aunts and uncles we always have a good time together.


I was extremely active in high school, bouncing around between lacrosse, swimming, school musicals, band, clubs and various jobs among other things.  I fell off the wagon as many people do in college, but I've tried to make staying active a priority in my life now.  I love trying new ways to keep myself active and I've tried everything from running a half marathon, overnight hiking trips, to setting up regular gym routines to accomplish this. 



I consider myself an avid traveler.  I boarded my first plane when I was 18 months old and, although I don't remember it, I think it set a path for me that would include many life changing experiences.  I traveled for the first time without my family when I was 13 years old.  Looking back now I think that my parents were borderline crazy, but in reality, I think it was one of the greatest things that has ever happened to me.  I've been extremely lucky to travel as much as I have and I hope I never lose the desire or means to do so.



I studied History and International Studies in college and, although I loved both of those subjects, without any intentions of becoming a teacher or a politician, I was at a bit of a loss for work when I graduated from college in 2010.  I found myself living in Boston and back at a previous place of employment with a fancier title this time around. While I did feel all grown up, I quickly realized that it was not for me and in August of 2011 I moved to Dublin, Ireland to get my Masters Degree in Management.

I completed my degree in 2012 and bounced between a couple jobs until I finally found one where I am happy.  I am currently living in my parent's basement with my pup while paying off a mountain of student loans and awaiting my boyfriend's return from a deployment.



I am strong believer in the idea that whatever is meant to happen in life will happen.   I don't know if this means I believe in fate or if it means that I just make the most of every situation, but I don't have any fears about the future because I know whatever it is I'll be doing and where ever it is that I may be doing it will be exactly what I'm supposed to be doing at that time. Bring it on, life!

  7. Not sure about that Red Sox shirt, but... :) Stopping via the NE Bloggers linkup. Jealous of you living in Dublin. I visited in 2010 and can't wait to go back sometime. Such a wonderful place. And despite not being a fan, I've always wanted to see a game in Fenway!

  8. Hi Erin, thanks for stopping on my blogging and commenting :)

    I like your blog and you've done some pretty cool things in so little time! I've also lived in Dublin for a while and I've taken some Russian lessons as well. I tried my best but never really managed to say more than two sentences in a row :p
