About the Blogger




I’m AK. Often described as goofy, compassionate, and purposeful, I seek adventure and knowledge in all things. I’m a twenty-something and recent graduate of the University of Memphis. For the past year, I have been living in Bulgaria as part of the Fulbright Program as an English Teaching Assistant. I love lists, numbers (especially the #3), and organization. But on occasion, I abandon my type-A tendencies and embrace spontaneity. For example, I have a knack  for referencing a movie or song in almost every conversation, and I often leave sentences and stories hanging as I jump from one topic to…

These are a few of my favorite things:
