Hi, I’m Lyndsay!

I live in sunny Southern California.

I have a Bachelor’s degree in graphic design and a Bachelor’s degree in communication.

I graduated from a trade school in 2011 and after two years of working dead-end jobs, I was faced with the predicament of not being able to pay my loans. I decided to put myself back in school and start over. Why start over and not go to grad school you may ask? The trade school I went to was under investigation for fraud and the accreditation for my degree didn’t count for anything- anywhere! So I sucked up my pride and started all over. This wasn’t my ideal plan but I knew in the long run it was for the best.

I started this blog because I want to share the good and the hard. I have people in my circle, from all walks of life, who have constantly wondered how I mange to deal with everything life has thrown at me, and honestly I have no answer for them. I have no idea how I am still able to remain positive (on most days) and carry on. If I can help anyone out there who has struggled and make them feel like they are not alone then I will be a happy girl.

I am currently unemployed after a series of unfortunate circumstances, but I am actively looking for work in the social media/marketing field. I am hopeful that I will find something soon, but it’s been quite the mountain to climb.

I promise this won’t be a pitty-party blog! I also want to share with you other things that I love such as cooking, reading, Disneyland trips, travel, fashion and more.

My life has been full of plot twists, and it always leads me to places and situations I never thought I would be in. That is why I named this blog Somewhere Unexpected.

I hope you will follow along with me on this journey!
