My name is Terin and I am:
A Freelance Writer/Blogger, graduate student pursuing an MA in English and Creative Writing, creative outside of the box thinker, and a voracious reader and writer.
My personal blog was created as an outlet to showcase how I navigate life through quarantine, allowing readers to resonate with the same struggles we all face; seek a healthy work/life balance, stay sane as many aspire to change directions within a career, and work to raise a family (all while finishing college degrees to make BIG dreams become a reality.)
Recently, I have decided to move in a different direction and pursue my life long passion of working in Journalism, preferably in Publishing.
Follow along on my journey as I navigate life through quarantine seeking a healthy work/life balance, stay sane as I aspire to change directions within my career, work to raise 3 strong willed teens, finish a graduate degree (in my mid 30’s no less), and somehow keep my 20 year marriage thriving. Whew, that was tiring.
