Last week was my birthday and that day I cried. Not because I was sad, but because it was my 25th birthday. Wow, a quarter of a life already! So as a present to myself, I decided to give myself something that I’ve been wanting for a long time, but have been too scared to try. A blog.
Who Am I?
My name is Mayra and I am currently living in San Antonio, TX. I’m a shopaholic on a budget. I love designer brands, but try to be smart with my money. I love to read, cook, and explore. I love to travel and meet new people. I’m a DIY-er and an entrepreneur. I’m a corporate gal by day and your typical millennial by night.
Why Do I Blog?
Turning 25 has really put this whole “1/4 life crisis” into light. I’m not where I thought I would be 5 years ago. I don’t know if I ever will be. But I do know that there is still a lot ahead of me as long as I start making some changes and taking some chances…
I like to write. I like to talk to people and recommend new restaurants, recipes, brands, and places to visit. I love sharing a great sale with a fellow fashionista. I love to meet new people and hear their stories.
To me, starting a blog seemed like a great way to incorporate everything that I am and everything that I love. A great way for me to grow and learn about myself. My blog will always be a work in progress, and I appreciate everyone in advance who takes the time to read it!
Why “Small Town Runaway”?
I’ve always lived in small towns. Towns where everyone knows your name. Places where the people who grow up there also grow old there. Now don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with that. It was just never something for me. I’ve always craved more than the small-town living. I dreamt of living in a big city, where people dress beautifully every day, and it’s perfectly normal for someone not to know who you are.
Now that I’ve had the chance to live in big cities, I know that this is where I belong. I am a “Small Town Runaway.”
