First of all, thanks so much for checking out my blog. I’d like to introduce myself so you can get to know more about me.
I’ll be honest, I haven’t always LOVED New Hampshire. I was born in NH, Manchester to be exact, and raised in Amherst, NH. When it came time to apply to colleges I was determined to leave NH and never look back. I wanted to go to school in Tennessee to pursue music management. At the time, all I wanted to do was get away from the kids in my town and the drama that ensues in small towns. I wanted to make a new life for myself and see more of the world than just “lame” ol’ New Hampshire. However, I ended up going to the University of New Hampshire.
I can remember driving up on Freshman move-in day and thinking “I’m just going to do a year here then transfer out of state”. But, I ended up falling in love with UNH and stayed the rest of the three years. In fact, I loved it so much, I work there now as a marketing coordinator!
Anyway, so how did I end up falling in love with New Hampshire you ask? Part of it is kind of embarrassing. One day I was scrolling through channels on my TV and the show North Woods Law was on. I remember hearing about a show following the Fish and Game Wardens of New Hampshire but never had an interest in watching it. Well, I decided to give it a try and the rest is history. I fell in love with the show and realized what a great state I have at my fingertips.
The other reason I fell back in love with NH is because of COVID-19. What? Yeah! So this whole pandemic thing SUCKS. I don’t know about you but I’m ready to get back to normal (wear a mask…!). The nature of my job relies on student’s tuition and since millions of dollars were returned to students, that meant I got furloughed. Being furloughed is bittersweet. The sweet part of it, is that I have all the time in the world. So I decided to explore my home state!
I’ve already started exploring but I’ll make some posts on past adventures as well as future adventures. Also, NH has some wicked good restaurants so I’ll be doing some posts on that.
I’m open to any recommendations as well! For now, I’m sticking to the Granite State until the coronavirus business calms down. Once that mess is over, I’d love to explore other places in New England and maybe one day go elsewhere in the country…or the world!
