Welcome to my blog. My name is Jessica. I am new to blogging, but really wanted a fun, creative way to get back into writing for enjoyment. I’m an English teacher at an urban district in upstate New York, so I don’t have too much time to write for myself. Since I’m officially out of school for summer, its time to get blogging! I have several passions: traveling, shopping, food and all things culture. By highlighting these passions through writing, I hope to gain new perspectives on all that belongs to us in the world.
