Let’s take a journey

fullsizeoutput_11f4Welcome to my blog!

So my name is Tarah but it autocorrects to “trash” on an iPhone which makes for some fun introductions. I was born and raised in colorful Colorado Springs, Colorado but I go to college in the land of eternal summer: sunny southern California. I am a SENIOR at Claremont McKenna College (I cannot wrap my head around that statement) and I’m majoring in Philosophy & Public Affairs with a Leadership Sequence. I love all things mango or coconut, I liked avocado before it was basic, and I am a coffee addict… I think that coffee is the foundation for all things good: a good day, a good talk, a good relationship. There isn’t anything quite like the promise of a good cup of coffee.

I created this blog with the intention of sharing my experiences while studying abroad in Copenhagen, but I found so much personal enjoyment in recounting my stories online that I want to continue writing this summer, living in LA near USC and interning in El Segundo at a retail development company called CenterCal.  I take life like I take my coffee – room for cream, no sugar. And it just so happens that there’s a shiny new espresso machine in my new office…
