More About Me

 A little more about Shannon:

My name is Shannon McKenna and I’m 23 years old. I graduated from Pace University in May, 2015 with a Bachelors Degree in Communication Arts and Journalism and a minor in psychology. I live in Ocean Beach, New York with my lovely boyfriend Pablo. At the end of February, Pablo and I returned from a month-long Eurotrip to some of the most amazing places we’ve ever seen, including towns in Norway, The Netherlands, France and Spain. A week later, we left for a road-trip down to Florida and across the United States during which we made stops in Mississippi, New Orleans, New Mexico, Mexico, California, Nevada and Colorado. We hit 26 states + Mexico all together!

I believe traveling helps remind us to embrace the lives we live and the cultures that we aren’t used to in a world where we’re all just human, trying to figure out the best way to feel good about ourselves and our surroundings. In any case, traveling inspires me to write.

Now that I have accumulated four years of experience with a degree to show for it, I finally have the confidence to pursue my passion: writing!

“What’s next?” you might ask. That’s something I’ve been asking myself since I graduated. The truth is, I still don’t have a solid answer, but that’s ok for now.

My plan is simply to build my blog while expanding my experience in life through reading and writing, loving and traveling as much as possible. Hopefully, I’ll begin to uncover a specific path along the way.

This blog is a reflection of my thoughts because I’m the kind of person who can only sort through thoughts by writing them down or capturing them in a picture. I hope that I’m able to connect and relate to you or some experience you’ve had, even the slightest bit, by making my thoughts public. Thank you for your time and I hope you enjoy what I have to say and show. All photos and poems are completely original unless otherwise noted! 🙂
