My name is Kelsey Welke and I'm a recent graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. I studied International Journalism and Public Relations.
I studied abroad in Dublin, Ireland spring 2012 and it really changed my life. I have traveling in my blood. I get that from my mother. I've been to 26 states and 8 countries, and I'm only 23!
For being such a world traveler, I'm actually quite a hermit, hence why this blog is called the Hermit Diaries. I love nothing more than cozying up in my bed with my kitten, having some candles burning, a cup of chai tea on my nightstand and a movie playing. This blog is a reflection of my hermit lifestyle. If I'm not watching movies, Mad Men, or playing with my kitten, I'm writing blog posts, looking at other peoples blog posts, or on Mashable, Thought Catalog, College Lifestyles or Twitter.
I got the 365 Days of Happy from a project called Project 365, where you take a picture once a day, every day, for a year. But I manipulated that project to fit my needs.
If you have questions for me, if you'd like me to write a specific blog post, if you'd like me to post more pictures of Simba, or if you just want to chat, don't hesitate to contact me! Also, follow me on Twitter. I post some funny shit sometimes.
