Where in the world is Melly?

Updated: Aug 21

Physically, I am in Atlanta. Blog-wise... let me tell you a short story.

When I started my budget travel blog, I thought I would have so much time to write. (I always think there are more hours in the day than there really are and that I have enough time to do EVERYTHING on my to-do list.) Please tell me I am not the only one.

I also thought it would be a good idea to start my budget travel blog in the second semester of my second master's degree program. (This should tell you where I have been.) I have been working hard on assignments, readings, discussion posts, and most recently, a large portfolio and final applied project. It took a lot of blood, sweat, and tears (figuratively), but I survived! And now,

I am proud to announce that I finished my program as of July 2023! I am officially a two-time master's degree holder! My first degree was in Applied Linguistics with a Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages certificate, and this second degree is in Learning, Leadership, and Organization Development.

So where have I been if I finished school in July? Working and taking much-deserved vacations! I cannot wait to blog about those affordable travel experiences. I went to California with my boyfriend, Tampa with my mom and aunt (as a graduation present), Virginia to visit a college friend, and New York with my boyfriend and his family (another graduation present). The best, most affordable way to travel is definitely to let someone gift you a trip! #budgettravel

I know this was a short and sweet post, but I wanted to update you all on why I have been M.I.A. I am coming back! I enjoy writing for myself as a way to remember my trips and reflect on them. I also enjoy writing for you all and sharing helpful information and new destinations for you to create some of your own memories.

Until next time, Stay Peachy!

Eat, Drink, and be Melly
