Hello! I’m Miranda Knudtson.
And to address the elephant on the web, my last name is pronounced “K-noot-son,” (I greatly dislike the awkward question of… how do you pronounce your name?! So if you’re anything like me, you’re welcome).
I’m a 20-something located in Wisconsin. I love traveling, trying new things, experiencing cultures, and making people laugh in general. I crave an adrenaline rush… but a calculated one at that. Meaning I love the adrenaline rush….as long as there’s a professional nearby! As social media and general digital marketing is my day job, I know there is a LOT of information swirling around the internet. I aim to be as REAL and HONEST as possible, no matter where I am on the web. I’m a real person, so BUCKLE UP, because you’re going to get all of the sarcastic, awkward, and sassy glory that is this blog and my social pages.
Speaking of awkward, it’s common for you to see pictures like this:
I almost slipped into this FREAKING COLD RIVER while doing a professional photoshoot…and I’m sure you have a pretty good idea of what I said in that shot. What’s life if you can’t learn to laugh at yourself? You’ll find me post chuckle-worthy #InstagramFails, along with the ocassional sassy blog post. Really, it’s all in good fun, I make fun of myself most of the time.
My tagline: Misadventures Make Memories, is something I truly live by and want others to realize: though some things may go wrong during your travels, and in life in general, you can STILL have fun and have fantastic memories. Something my mother instilled in me throughout my life, and I want to share this gem of knowledge with you all. So, on this journey, I’ll share all of my mistakes, goof-ups, accidents, and anything absolutely stupid I did.
Although I want you all to be truly entertained, I still aim to be informative on places and activities, and inspirational in encouraging you to step outside your comfort zone… even if it’s just a toe.
