Hello! I’m Lexie!

11099686_10206881722901171_2462851674076314336_o

I’m a 22-year-old undergrad student at a university near my home, who is obsessed with reading, writing, learning, Doctor Who (and other various shows and films with huge fandom followings), and exploring. My dream come true would be to have the ability to travel the world, without worrying about money or work dragging me down along the way. I’m a dreamer. This is one thing I can be sure of. Thoughts of magical worlds, perfect scenarios, love, adventure, and happiness float through my mind at all times, and I wouldn’t change a thing about it. The day I let the magic in my mind die out is the day I stop being me, and I never want that to happen. You will most likely see a lot of posts of photos around town where I live, so I may as well help you get a little more acquainted with it. I live in Kansas City, Missouri, born and raised. A lot of people have great pride in this city, and I wouldn’t say that I don’t, I’d just say its not as strong. There are some beautiful and incredible places in this city if you know where to look, and that’s what I hope to share with you in some posts along my journey. But my heart isn’t in this city, or this country even. After traveling to England, Ireland, Wales and Scotland at the age of 13 with an organization called People to People International’s Student Ambassador program, I fell madly and deeply in love with England. I’ve never felt more comfortable or more connected with a place before in my life, and I don’t think I ever will again anywhere else. My goal in life is to find a way to move to England and build a life there, which is easier said than done, but that’s a story for another post.

My vision for this blog is simply to make it a place where I can go to share my life with people, talk about important things in my life, share the things I am enjoying, and most importantly, take you along with me on the adventures of my life, however boring or exciting they may be from day to day.

If you ever have any questions, comments, concerns, ideas; anything! Please don’t hesitate to contact me directly or comment on any of my blog posts and I will do my best to get back to you as soon as I can. I hope more than anything that you will join me on this new adventure in my life, and I look forward to sharing all the best bits, and all the ones in between with you in the days, weeks, and months to come.

I hope you’re doing well, where ever you are in the world, and I wish you all the best.

-Lexie Xx

    1. Hi Lexi-
      Thank you for liking my post! How fortunate you are to be so young and to have such wonderful dreams! I am sure you will travel and make them into reality. I understand about not being so into “home”. I always just wanted to get away from where I lived- rural North Carolina. I’ve loved travel across the US, and travlled near where you are from, but was not into “big travel” til I was in my 40’s! LOL So I am old enough to be your mom but those of us with wanderlust never really age. Life is one big adventure, no matter where we are!!!
      Good luck on making those dreams happen! You are on your way.

  1. Lexie, after you liked my post I felt compelled to have a look at your blog and OMG! You and I seem to have the same goals as me but in reverse. I am British and since first travelling to the USA back in my teens, I am seriously in love with the country! I holiday there as often as I can and I can’t see why anyone wouldn’t want to live there. I’m guessing you have the same thoughts about the UK. It’s funny how the grass always seems greener 😉 Love your blog – you have a great writing style.

    1. Haha let’s just trade places! I know what you mean, I can never understand why those of you in the UK always want to ship out to the US when I’ve had my bags packed to leave for as long as I can remember! You’re completely right, the grass is always greener on the other side. 😉 Thanks so much, I’m just starting out and figuring out just what this little corner of the internet is going to be, but I think its coming along now! 🙂

  2. I like England especially Scotland , I had traveled several times and never get bored on that country, maybe it’s the single malt.i love all Scottish liquor . There is nothing wrong to be a dreamer as long you are going to work your best to attain your dream and no regret if you do your best. I love reading novel too and my favorites novelist are Steve Berry ,James Rolling, Dan Brown, Sidney Shiedon and Paolo cuhelo . Good luck and wish you the best.

  4. You are a very bright, young lady! I am very impressed with your attitudes about yourself and life, and I especially appreciate your writing skills. You most certainly have a command of English grammar and punctuation, something that is lacking in much of our society these days. You will succeed in this life and I wish you the best in your travels around the world. Enjoy life to the fullest!

  5. Hey, I grew up in KC, MO as well! Lee’s Summit actually 🙂 I moved to the west coast 10 years ago and haven’t been back since, but I really miss it at times. Which makes me laugh, because I was SO ready to get out of there when I left! Looking forward to reading more of your blog!

    1. I’ve had my bags packed to head out of here since elementary school! Haha. I feel like we’ve all got one foot out the door when we’ve been somewhere all our lives, and never realize how much we’ll miss it till we’ve left. 🙂 I hope you enjoy it!

  6. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Don’t be in too much of a hurry to settle down in England. There’s a whole world out there to explore 😉
    I’m a bit of an anglophile, having been raised amongst folks from the UK and gone through a British school system, but living in Africa has left me in search of warmer climes. I always remember being very cold in England while folks remarked what a warm summer it was!
    Anyway, just don’t limit yourself, it’s amazing all the places there are to see.

    1. Absolutely. I have severe wanderlust, so I will most definitely be exploring more to find the right place for me, then doing all I can to actually be able to move there! 🙂 Though I will say, I hate being hot! Haha, in my mind, you can always put more layers on or warm up by a fire or something if you’re cold, but there’s only so much that can be done when you’re too hot.
      I really want to make it to Africa at some point, maybe not to live, as I’m not sure I could handle the heat forever, but who knows! Where are you based in Africa? I’m sure it’s beautiful there.

      1. I’m not in Africa these days, grew up there.In Malawi, wonderful warm tropical climate and Lesotho- some of the coldest weather ever, I kid you not I’ve helped dig a landrover out of a 10′ snowbank so we could get to the next town before we froze to death! Currently I’m living somewhere hotter! Yes you read that correctly. Bakersfield California where summer temps over 110 degrees (43C) are not uncommon. Makes me long for the cooler temps of the tropics:)
        My last trip to Africa was to visit my parents in 2010 in Botswana

      2. Wow, it sounds like you’ve had quite the eventful life thus far! I live in Kansas City, Missouri, and temperatures (most of all the humidity) gets pretty hot here as well, with no relief. Every summer I’m convinced I won’t make it through, then Fall rolls around and I’m happy again haha, same cycle every year. Amazing photos on that post by the way!

      3. Thanks, humidity is what makes the heat hard to bear. I lived in Louisiana for awhile and that’s some serious combo- heat and humidity. I used to have a Bakersfield t-shirt said but its a dry heat and had a picture of an emaciated coyote with his tongue hanging out.

  7. Hi Lexie, Thanks for visiting my blog. Like you, I dreamed of moving to England (while I was living in France). I made it happen in my twenties and am now living in UK. You can also make it happen. Keep your dreams alive, save as much money as you can and try to come here to do a work placement (this may lead to your employer wanting to keep you and from then on you can get a visa to stay).

  9. Hi Lexie, and thanks for visiting my blog. I hope you realise your dream of coming to live here (I recommend Manchester in North West England, but maybe I’m slightly biased about that, and if you look at some of my other posts, you’ll discover the Lake District and be even more determined.

    Great to ‘meet’ you.

    1. Lovely to virtually meet you as well Martin, and I’m jealous! I’d love to live there. I’ve explored the Lake District a little bit, but not nearly enough. I hope I’ll get to go back soon! Manchester is another place I need to explore much MUCH more. I only spent a day and a half there when I was in England last, it was lovely though!

  10. Hi Lexie. Thank you for liking my site on conscious social change. I am interested in hearing about your self-discoveries as you travel (inwardly and outwardly) on your life road. I have never been to England but I believe if you continue to feel such resonance with being there, and you head in that direction – one step at a time – you will end up there.

  11. Lexie, thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. Very much appreciated. I am not going to sound patronizing by telling you that you are still young and have your life stretched in front of you, so you shouldn’t worry about Thyroid issues, that would be an unfair attempt to diminish the challenges that you go through. I did not know much about hyperthyroidism until a close friend started having the problems, which I am happy to say is under control right now. I take the first step in the right direction is getting the diagnosis which you have sorted out.
    I read your sleepy Sunday article and that made me smile. Most times, getting these things out of our chest; ramblings or not are healing and therapeutic in themselves. Good luck with future husband because you come across as such a positive spirit. Good luck in your adventures. Jacqueline

  12. Lexus, thanks for the like on my “Wonder of Wonders.” After reading your About, I think you would like to know the man I wrote about was an English citizen but became an Americn soon after coming to USA. My story of how that happened is in a blog called “A Place in my Heart.” It is in my archives June, 2015. Drop by again
    I have signed up for your e-mail so I’ll keep up with you.

  14. Whilst this may come across as marginally facetious and certainly lazy given the amount one could find out on a trawl of the internet these days, I thought I’d ask you. Why is Kansas City not in Kansas? It’s not even in Arkansas and why isn’t that called Ar-kansas rather than Ar-can-saw? Or shouldn’t it be Kan-saw city?! Don’t even get me started on St Louis/Louie/Lewis debate! S’French init?!

    I have too much time on my hands and spend far too little of it writing properly! Keep writing, it is always worth it, in years to come you will find you have a record of the personal development you went through inside that you could not have got from anywhere else, all being well you’ll have enjoyed the journey.
