About Me!

I’m Alex, and I’ve been described as a bit of a dichotomy. I hope to pursue social work, yet I’wpid-2015-09-02-00-16-37_photo.jpgm the very definition of an introvert.

The idea for the name of this blog came after I spent the whole summer of 2015 scrawling down every thought, emotion, and event in a journal that had “Not All Who Wander Are Lost” on the front cover, a take on Tolkien’s quote. I’m not a Tolkien fan, but I’ve always loved that, because it fits me so perfectly.

Young women of my generation are starting to get married around my age and having babies. Me? I like to live a somewhat unpredictably and travel as much as I can when I can afford it.Β Born in Vancouver and raised, but trying to find my niche elsewhere after growing tired of the hustle and bustle of the big city.

After an unfortunate stint at an unnamed college studying social service work, I left to pursue better education and that dream education will resume in the autumn of 2016 at a new and better school.Β I’m an adult student and have attended post-secondary before, but never to specialize in mental health, which was always my dream.

In my spare time, I volunteer with causes that matter very much to me, and I try to make my time on this earth mean something, even if it’s just that I’m here. I study Buddhism and it brings me great peace, and I feel that’s part of my

  1. Oh my gosh!!! I had not read the tag line to your blog title.. Thank you, thank you.. I am not alone in this world after all.. thank you so much.. Cursive, oh my gosh.. for the first time someone agrees with me and does not think the word is some sort of slur or abusive term hahaha…
    But, much as I love my fountain pen and my erstwhile beautiful hand, I regret to tell you that I cannot write much anymore.. Because of a medical problem I am unable to write properly.. and you have no idea how frustrating it is.. but I tried.. and I try.. some day I shall get back to writing with my fountain pen.. in the meantime, thank you for that πŸ˜€ I don’t feel like a lonely dinosaur anymore hahaha

    1. Can you believe they don’t even teach cursive at school anymore? (I feel so old saying that, but I’m not even thirty yet!) What an utter travesty that the younger generations will never know the beauty of cursive. I write in my journal more, but challenged myself to have a personal blog. It’s going to be quite a journey, but I will never abandon the pen! πŸ™‚ There’s just something wonderful about having a tangible record of your life that you can feel and smell (hey, I like the smell of books) rather than just see on some computer.

      1. Yes, I know.. but, I taught my daughter to write beautifully πŸ™‚ At least, that is some saving grace.. but the rest of the kids write really silly typeface sort of stuff.. I am so glad you think the same way πŸ™‚

        And I love the smell of books too πŸ™‚

        Don’t you dare start feeling old yet πŸ˜€ There is still so much time to get there.. and enjoy it until you do..
