Life is a storm, my young friend. You will bask in the sunlight one moment, be shattered on the rocks the next. What makes you a man is what you do when that storm comes. You must look into that storm and shout as you did in Rome. Do your worst, for I will do mine! Then the fates will know you as we know you.
– Alexandre Dumas, The Count of Monte Cristo
Hi there! My name is Eena. I’m terrible at introducing myself because I tend to go on endless tangents and want to say a million things all at once. To keep it short, I’m a twenty-something nurse who enjoys the outdoors, hiking, traveling, musicals, golf, basketball and simply going on adventures! When I’m not at work saving lives (ha), I’m either planning for the next adventure, taking photos, eating some good food or browsing through the REI website.
This guy right here is my amazing fiancé, Chris. We met in the summer of 2011 and have been together since fall of that same year. He popped the question on his twenty-ninth birthday, right before we saw Hamilton: An American Musical on Broadway – it’s safe to say I said yes. He enjoys the same things I do, which probably explains why we get along so well! He never writes on the blog but he does pose for the pictures and proofreads the entries.
