Life Update!

Hello everyone! Sorry I have been so inactive lately. If you didn’t know or don’t remember from a previous life update post, I joined AmeriCorps NCCC last November. With this program, we sign up for a year of service, and essentially, we are sent to anywhere in the US to do various community service projectsContinue reading “Life Update!”

100 Followers!

Hello, I just wanted to share this milestone with everyone, I have reached 100 followers! Whoop!

Thank you to allContinue reading “100 Followers!”

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas everyone! I’m sure everyone’s Christmas is looking a little different this year with Covid-19 and trying to stay safe! My family is very conscious of everything and high risk so I drove from Colorado to California (17 hours) for the holidays so I wouldn’t be in contact with loads of people. Our plansContinue reading “Merry Christmas!”

Life Update: AmeriCorps NCCC

Hello, I just wanted to give you guys a little life update. My original plans for this year were to move to South America and teach English or History at an international school. Obviously with Covid-19, those plans were a no go. In April, I had a bit of a panic trying to figure outContinue reading “Life Update: AmeriCorps NCCC”

Books for a Cause!

They both sent out emails that they are offering their books at a discounted rate and that the proceeds will go towards promoting voter rights in the US. As you know, I am a big activist for rights so I love thatContinue reading “Books for a Cause!”

Independence Day and Giving Back

Hello, Happy 4th of July everyone! I hope everyone is celebrating safely and staying cool in this crazy hot weather. With everything happening this year, I have become much more educated on our history and black America, especially Juneteenth, when blacks were declared free. While 1776 is when we, as a nation, declared independence fromContinue reading “Independence Day and Giving Back”

Hello everyone, just wanted to let you know I have changed my blog name from “ihaveliveda1000lives” to “thetravellingreader96.” Why? I think this theme fits a little better with my blog.
