Thank you so much for being here!
Whenever I discover a new blog, the first thing I do is navigate to the “about” page to learn more about the blogger. And, as a blogger myself, I see my readers as friends, and every friendship starts with an introduction. So, here’s mine; if you take the time to read this, please comment below with a little about yourself, or reach out to me through my contact page!
Hi! I’m Sara, a writer, an aspiring programmer, and an American living abroad in the Netherlands. In my spare time, I love to sew dresses, bake bread, and read in the grass.
I’m a Christian of the recovering-perfectionist variety. I love God and try to live my life with the same love and compassion that Jesus did. I fall short all the time, which frustrates my inner straight-A student, and reminds my inner theology student of the importance and reality of grace.
Speaking of which, I studied religion at Wellesley College, spent my junior year abroad at Oxford University, and got my degree in December of 2016. After graduating, I spent a year working as a freelance writer and blogger, and then began learning programming online. I’m hoping to transition to becoming a front end developer in the next year.
I’m engaged to my fiancé Ken, who I’ve been with for six years (though we actually met in third grade — it’s a long story). He’s hysterically funny, cringily punny, and so supportive of me and my life. He loves coding, illustration, and experimenting with foods in ways that make me concerned for his wellbeing (yesterday, he took a peanut butter-and-soy sauce sandwich to work).
Also, I love personality tests and quizzes. So, if you’re curious, I’m an ENFP, an Enneagram 2, and in the Big Five score highly for Extraversion, Agreeableness, and (to my hilariously ironic frustration) Neuroticism. That’s me in a nutshell.
Thank you for reading and please comment below with a little about yourself! I’d love to get to know you.
