Hi there! My name is Debbie and welcome to my little blog, The Misguided Millennial where my goal is to share my experiences on everything from travel to fashion to trying to succeed as an adult. I am not an expert on anything and my goal is to always be real and honest with you all. If you want to stay up to date, subscribe by e-mail in the sidebar, and follow my Twitter and Pinterest accounts for even more information on traveling the world as a millennial.

Who Am I?

Well, my name is Debbie and I am your typical 20-something millennial girl. I live in New York City and work full-time as a High School Special Education Teacher and and also in graduate school. My love of traveling stems from my desire to escape small town America where I grew up and see the world. In May 2015, I graduated from the University of Florida after studying Biology and Anthropology. While an undergrad, I traveled extensively, studying abroad on 3 unique programs, visiting a friend in Spain one Thanksgiving, attending the London Olympics with my college Marching Band, and visiting various cities around the US and even frigid Montreal with my competitive Model UN team.

It was these opportunities that lead me to flee the US after graduation in search of an adventure abroad, hence my decision to attend grad school abroad, which you can read more about here. I enjoy reading, music, learning about obscure diseases, traveling (obviously), and a good debate about nearly anything. I currently travel every chance I get to see new places and meet up with old friends. In my real-adult life, I work in education and try my best to balance work, traveling, and being marginally healthy. I travel as much as I can and I am hoping that my job as a teacher will let me travel more in the near future.

The Misguided Millennial

I started this blog right after graduating college as a way of sharing my thoughts on life. My main goal of course was to talk about navigating the world while dealing with the struggles of being a millennial, such as trying to travel when you are being suffocated by student loan debt. My goal is to share my experiences traveling to new places, living abroad, and navigating postgrad life. The posts I share focus on places I have visited, places I dream of visiting, logistics of planning for trips, travel gear and product recommendations and how to make and save money for traveling. I also post occasionally about fashion and beauty to share some of my favorite products with you all.

I want this blog to act as a collection of tips I have learned in my travels that I hope will help you all. Before I started working full-time, I spent a few years wandering around after graduation because I wanted time to travel. There is nothing like the feeling of finding the perfect cafe with a view of the Eiffel Tower. Or stumbling upon a hidden museum about your favorite author in Moscow. And nothing beats finally seeing the UN headquarters after years of studying UN. These are my motivations for traveling and I hope this blog can motivate others to have equally amazing experiences. I hope you all enjoy!

From one Misguided Millennial to the world, I hope you all enjoy my thoughts!
