About Me

Fast facts: I am 20 years old. I am a student at Boston University studying to be an English teacher. I was born in California, moved to Argentina when I was a baby, and then moved to Rhode Island when I was five years old. I have an Argentinian mom, an American dad, and an older brother. I love to go on adventures and I love to learn.

That's me

Interesting facts: I have always lived by an ocean or in a city. Oceans and cities have often taught me more about life and more about myself than I have ever learned from a class or a text book. I am a twenty year old girl who doesn’t have life quite figured out, but I am working on it. I spend the school year in Boston and I spend my summers and vacations in RI. Between the sea and the city I am learning to become myself.

To learn more about my blog, please see my first post, Cheers to the average! In the meantime, keep smiling, ladies and gents – it’s a beautiful day!

Keep reading,

Tess 🙂

  1. Your blog is awesome! I love how you say you’re learning to become yourself. 🙂 It’s what I’m learning to do! (And by that I mean become MYself, not YOURself…I’m really tired. I’m in university too.) Anyway, I’m following! 🙂


  2. Hey there Tess! My name is Reign and I found you in the community pool and I’m glad I did because I am 20 too and I feel EXACTLY how you feel about not really having life figured out! I’m from Seattle, I’ve never been to Boston! I am looking forward to reading your blog and seeing the things you learn about yourself and everything else!


    • Hi Reign! Thanks so much for the positive response! I find it hard to believe that anybody really has life “figured out,” but I do my best to learn more about it from my experiences and from my surroundings. I’ve never been to Seattle, but it’s always been a bucket list destination for me. I’m so pleased that you enjoy my blog and as a fellow 20 year old, I wish you best of luck in discovering more about your place in our wild world too!


      • That’s a good point. I think when you’re on the outside looking in it always seems like people do. That’s what I struggle with is not being sure of myself. It really gets me down since I see so many young people doing things (from the outside looking in) and I get discouraged so I’m really trying to work on that. And oh yeah?? You should! I think everyone should visit Seattle.

        Thanks for the encouraging words Tess:)

    • Thank you so much! That is really cool! I’ve been away from my blog for too long because I had a big wave of schoolwork for the past month, but I’m getting back into the swing of things now. I will be sure to write the post in response to this and nominate my select choices soon! Thank you again for the encouragement and support!
