Hi! I’m Sarah. I’m described by my European friends as the most typical American they have ever met, a direct result of my overuse of the word “love “ and total abuse of superlatives (not every weekend can really be the BEST one I’ve ever had).
I never studied abroad in college so instead of eating Piatzas on European Rivieras I chowed down on hot dogs at Chicago’s Weiner Circle. When I graduated from Northwestern I moved to India for four months to work for an AIDS organization. After several near death-by-rickshaw scares I beelined to New York and fell into a life defined by cramped apartments, $10 beers and True Blood vampires in my marketing job at HBO.
Earlier this year I got into business school and the thought of attending finance classes and honing my resume for the next two years left me feeling antsy. I also loved my job at HBO but felt compelled to see more of the world. To the horror of my parents I decided an advanced education and a “steady, 401K, heavy-benefits” career were just not as appealing as being an English teacher in Italy. At least not at this point in my life.
The way I see it, NOW is my opportunity to jet set. I am 26-years old, single and mortgage-less. If not now, when? Check out our continued adventures around the world at: www.sistersbailey.wordpress.com
