Hello! If you don’t know already, my name is Mia, I’m 26 and I own this blog. I’ve had this blog since 2010. The name is based on one of my most favorite Beatles songs, Nowhere Man, which speaks to me on a very personal level wherever I am with my life.
I started this blog when I was still in college. I was a totally different person back then, I was a wide-eyed dreamer, ambitious, and I’m pretty sure that I haven’t had my feet on the ground when I first started writing here.
Nine years later, here I am. Married to a man whom I never, in my wildest dream, thought of loving with all my heart despite everything I’ve been through.
So much has changed since 2010. I’m a teacher by profession but currently, I am pursuing my dream of being a writer, and entrepreneur. Although I have always dreamed of writing fiction (and attempted soooo many times) I find that writing content for small businesses for a living is just as fulfilling. Plus, did I mention that I finally achieved my dream of working at home or at cafes, and even in a different city?? Great, right?
This used to be my only blog where I chronicle my journey through heartbreak and triumph, as well as to document my food crawl escapades, my wanderlust urges. You may also notice that it’s filled with so much personal content, but over the years, I have also used this blog for several sponsored writing gigs which, believe it or not, has gotten me through college and critical wallet days when I began working. LOL
I have a new blog, too, and that is where I post my food and travel blogs since last year. It is also where I write about my life as a wife. You can visit it at: miasanjuan.com
For a while, I have contemplated whether or not to give up Nowhere Girl. Thinking that I will no longer be able to keep it up, but the funniest thing is that despite where I am in life, I am still and will always be Nowhere Girl…
Looking back into my history with this blog, I could never seem to give it up completely. It has been my most personal space and has all my shenanigans posted in it. Also, my journey to self-love and finding my husband in a sea of hopelessness and self-destruction.
I hope that whatever you find here will resonate with you one way or another, and if not, well hey! enjoy reading all my dramas. There’s more where that came from. LOL
