Who I Am and Why I’m Here

I have always been terrible at bios but good with lists so here goes!

Who I Am:

  • Joanna
  • The older sister, the cousin that takes them places, the girlfriend of a “car guy”
  • Would ideally love to be an adventure photographer, travel blogger, Photoshop master
  • Philly local
  • Terrible cook
  • Lion dancer, kung fu & kickboxing learner
  • I love puppies but do not have one
  • Working in technology in the financial world but never like to talk about work even at work

Why I’m Here:

Why are you blogging publicly, rather than keeping a personal journal?

  • This is my public blog but my cousins and I do keep a daily journal that we share with each other to keep each other updated. This one is more to share my fun experiences with everyone who may be thinking about doing or going somewhere similar.

What topics do you think you’ll write about?

  • I will mostly be writing about new experiences in my life and places I get to visit. There are lots of things and places on my bucket list from small things like a pottery class to visiting new local places to visiting all different countries; last year was Hong Kong!

Who would you love to connect with via your blog?

  • Fun people in general! I follow a lot of car blogs, travel blogs, fashion bloggers, wedding photographers, blogs that shows me something fun and new that is happening in the world today. I would also love to connect with locals from Philly and the surrounding area for meet ups or just to make new friends!

If you blog successfully throughout the next year, what would you hope to have accomplished?

  • I would hope to have figured out my writing style and how to improve it. Along with growing my blog, I also hope to grow in my photography skills.

Perks of Being Sick

I have been sick for the past 5 days and today, the boyfriend brought me flowers and lemon honey tea so sooth the sore throat. I am normally not a fan of tea or honey but this really helped with the coughing.

What are some home remedies that you guys use when you’re sick?

“Nobody can be uncheered with a Balloon” – Winnie the Pooh

Giant Balloon Pile

I don’t know why I like balloons but they make me happy. My one friend especially loves to “steal” balloons for me and tonight was one of those times!

My boyfriend also knows I like balloons so when he went to pick me up from the airport back from Texas, he brought this giant Pikachu ballon! He said he went looking a Pokemon balloon but they didn’t have it anywhere. He then went to Walmart and they had this Pikachu non-inflated so he bought it and took it to Party City and asked if they could inflate it. =)

Is there something that you like or makes you happy but don’t know why? If so, what is it?

How to PROPERLY use a Ketchup Cup!

My brother just showed me this mind blowing video that I have to share with everyone!

It came from the Food Beast website and boy am I wondering where my common sense has been all my life! I don’t think many people even know about this! I cannot wait until the next time I go somewhere with my friends and show them this.

Did you guys know about this? Are there any other cool design that not many people know about?
