C’mon in and make yourself at home. I have been going back and forth for months over whether or not to start my own blog. After graduating only a few days ago I finally decided to take the plunge. I hope to turn this blog into a small corner of the internet filled with thoughts, advice, inspirations, and honesty about my adventure into the real world. I am a twenty something who certainly does not have all the answers, but I promise to try to make sense of the crazy ride that is life. To get to know me a little better I decided to include five things you should know about me!

1) I have a TON of nicknames.

With the last name Shook, it is not surprising that I have accumulated a few nicknames over the years. From shookie, to shookiebear, shookie cookie, shakes, shake and bake, I am always surprised when I hear a new one!

2) Cupcakes win me over, everytime.

I have a slight obsession with cupcakes. I believe that even the worst day can be changed with one sweet treat.

3) I am a slight caffeine addict.

I love coffee. I drink at least two or three cups a day. I have recently tried expanding my coffee house choices from the simple hazelnut coffee to soy chai lattes. Something about a warm cup of coffee while watching the Today show every morning just seems right!

4) I studied abroad in Sydney, Australia and I am determined to return!

Studying abroad was one of the most terrifying, exciting, and eye opening experiences I have ever had. I lived with all Australians and they introduced me to an entirely new culture with open arms. I was able to travel and challenge myself regularly, which made for a captivating four and a half months. I hope to one day fly back to Sydney and live in Glebe, an inner city suburb of Sydney, in a little apartment above a cafe.

5) I am going into this with eyes wide open.

Blogging is something entirely new for me and I cannot wait to see where it takes me. I promise to push myself to consistently fill this page with new and interesting content. Thanks for coming along for the ride!
