My name is Alexis Carden, but I go by Lexi. I just graduated from Texas Tech University, getting a Bachelor’s degree in journalism with a minor in atmospheric science. I now currently go to Mississippi State University for graduate school to get my Master’s degree in geosciences with a concentration in environmental geosciences with a focus on atmospheric sciences.
I have many different hobbies, and writing is one of my primary ones. My favorite type of writing is travel writing, but with a twist. My personal twist on my travel blog is with weather and meteorology, so I will be capturing any interesting weather moments I come along to as well as my travel destinations.
Some of my other hobbies are: playing the flute, dancing, fashion, creative writing, baking cupcakes, stargazing, reading dystopian novels, painting, videography, photography, watching football, camping, scrapbooking, and many more!
I am an avid traveller, always trying to visit somewhere new. I am in love with the outdoors and everything about it. I love nature from the different types of plants to the various species of wildlife. And at the same time, I’m not afraid to do super outdoorsy things like going on hikes, swimming in rivers and lakes, or even braving through a haboob (it’s a giant dust storm).
An on another note, people usually say there are two kinds of people: mountain people and beach people. Well… I’m a little bit of both. The ocean feels like home, but the mountains give me a sense of awe-spiration. This’ll create a diverse atmosphere on my blog.
I’ve been on so many adventures from cross-country road trips to short day trips to month-long National Park conquests to weeklong cruises. Prepare to learn, read and see my adventures from wherever you are! Hopefully I can inspire you to take trips and make your own memories that will last a lifetime!
