I am Tessa. I’m no good at ‘about me’ – partly because I forget that you can’t meet me in person to figure that out yourself, and partly because I don’t know what you’d want to know.
Long story short, I’m in between. I fit the horrible stereotype of a twenty-something whose life is not only not on track, but who hasn’t chosen an end game.
I want to travel, to see the world. I want to immerse myself in other cultures. I want to speak foreign languages. I want to write, and to learn to be an engaging story teller. I want to benefit the people I encounter wherever I go. One day I’d like to be a photo journalist for National Geographic.
I was a private school teacher in New England for a little over a year after I graduated and then spent a year desperately trying to live a life that wasn’t yet ready for me. I returned recently to the great state of Florida to continue teaching while I accrue the means to embark on the nomad’s life. Or, you know, something completely different and unexpected, as usual.
I’d die without humor. Reading, writing, traveling, finding adventures, and stumbling upon unplanned escapades are my truest passions. I have a BA in Philosophy and am a student of life. For the most part I don’t know how to get to all of the places I want to go, but here’s to trying.
