Turnup Tuesdays w/Stassi: It’s me! Allow me to (RE)Introduce myself

Some of you first started following my blog posts back when I moved to the islands…back then I was on #islandadventures while discovering my new home on St. Thomas. I was fortunate to work on all of the U.S. Virgin Islands (St. Thomas, St. Croix, and St. John) and visit a few of the British Virgin Islands and spend some time on Puerto Rico. That experience was invaluable (I met my sweetie pie), but I realized that the atmosphere was better for an occasional visit (vacation) than permanent residence for me…so I relocated back to the states! My folks say I went from one hurricane zone to the next, but I reminded them that at least now I can DRIVE home or to safety elsewhere. Plus, let me be honest, I missed some conveniences like Walmart & Target, multiple ethnic restaurants, spur of the moment road trips, air conditioning, epsom salt baths, Amazon PRIME shipping in 1-2 days, grocery pickup…I could go on…
So now I’m living my best life teaching science and math teachers who are working towards their PhDs, traveling with my retired mom, (re)connecting with my siblings and cousins, catching up with my friends, and learning more about life and the world. I have rediscovered my love for reading, because college and graduate school squashed that passion, by realizing that I like crime and murder mysteries (which is pretty much all I watch on tv). I have been cooking a whole lot more (I LOVE my Air Fryer) and access to a YMCA network and the gym inside of my apartment complex allows me to workout more consistently.
I love God.
I love me.
I love my family.
I love bae.
I love food.
I love my friends.
I love my home.
I love my career.
I like my job.
I like my colleagues.
I like this new city.
I like my church family.
I like my gym.
But anyway, that’s a quick synopsis of the last couple of years… and now I’m baaaaaaccckkkkk… on the blog! For this summer into the fall (and longer if you like what I’m posting), I’ll be here for a new series that I’m calling Turnup Tuesdays w/Stassi. Come back here each week and find out what I’m excited (or frustrated/angry) about……
Come TURNUP with me…on a Tuesday!
