About

img_0628Hey there! My name’s Casie and I’m so excited you decided to visit my page. Let me start off by saying, I love writing about anything and everything and the fact you’ve chosen to read whatever random thought that pops into my head means a lot to me. Through my posts you’ll get to know me better than any about me page could ever do, but I’m going to give it a shot.

It all started on a warm, sunny afternoon on June 20, 1993. Haha, just kidding we won’t go that far back.

I discovered my love for writing at an early age. The first book I remember writing was Elmo’s Basketball BooBoo (or something of that nature). I was so proud to have written an entire story about how Elmo got a bump on his head;Β it was a nail biter. Throughout my years in school, English continued to be my favorite subject. I felt smart and successful in my English classes and I never realized others didn’t feel the same way. So when I took my first creative writing class my freshman year of college, I knew I was meant to write. After transferring to the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire to finish out my college career as a Creative Writing major, I decided I also loved talking and connecting with people. Which lead me to the world of Public Relations. I became a double major and felt my life was finally on track.

I started this blog in hopes to share a study abroad experience with friends and family. Little did I know the art of blogging brought me so much joy and release from the everyday stressors of life, I kept with it. I stuck with it through the toughest years of college, took a break for a year after college while I was adjusting to my first “real world” job, then found my way back once I decided it was time to quit the job I was in to travel for a little while.

I now work at the American Cancer Society in Minneapolis, Minnesota and find as many opportunities to experience life so I can write about it for you, my faithful reader. So, to sum it all up I’m aΒ twenty-something, creative writer, who loves dogs and people and, as always, am learning as I go.

P.S. I try to keep this real and not just the highlight kind.

My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.”
Maya Angelou
