My name is Dominique and Welcome to Bedhead Nomad 🙂
Roaming across this beautiful world is my mission and I would not mind spending the rest of my life trying to complete that mission.
I moved to Oregon about a year ago now from a small little beach town in Florida. It literally was a cross country road trip that took just about 7 days. The reason for such a big move? Well, it was an adventure I longed for … badly.
I lived in Florida for 11 years with my family; we moved there when I was in the 5th grade. It was a place where a lot of people had big dreams to leave and accomplish these amazing goals they had for themselves but so few actually pursued those dreams.
It was a place that felt too comfortable and sucked you into to this different universe making you feel that it’s nearly impossible to leave.
I refused to be one of the ones to stay.
The longer I was there the more suffocated I felt. I couldn’t breathe and in the back of my mind, like way way in the back of my mind I had a thought that there was a small chance I wouldn’t be able to make it out of there.
Oregon was and still is a breathe of fresh air … literally and figuratively.
I feel a sense of calmness, peace, and freedom. I feel sane. I feel like me. I don’t feel so trapped.
I’m not saying everyday is rainbow and unicorns here. It was a rough start when we arrived and for a few months after. Things of course didn’t go as planned. It’s very rare when they do.
But I learned so much about myself and I would do it all over again …. but probably with a better executed plan hahaha.
I’ve also fallen back in love with me.
For so long I slowly lost who I was. So now, everyday I do something that makes me happy.
Guys, I bought Play-Doh the other day and I’m not ashamed to say it! I’m just a 22 year old playing with Play-Doh and it made me so happy.
Clothes really fashion in general was something I was really into and I’m falling back in love with it again. I love how expressive clothes are. I can be anyone I want to be on a different day.
It’s almost like they tell a story.
But like my personality my style is all over the place and that’s how I like it. No one says you can only be one kind of person … where’s the fun in that ya know?!
And then there’s photography – my third love.
I fell in love with it in the 8th grade when I was part of the yearbook committee. Candid photos are my kind of style. I have nothing against portrait photography I just feel that candid photos tell an unspoken story.
I’m going to be honest here and say I have no clear idea on why I decided to start a blog but I’m finding it to be very therapeutic. With a mind that’s always going nonstop it’s nice to visually see my thoughts and ideas.
This blog is almost like my diary.
I want to document my life – the good and the ugly. So when I look back years from now I’ll be able to see all of the beautiful memories I’ve made.
I hope I can make your day just a little bit better with few laughs and some inspiration in the process.
Life is meant to be experienced. So, if you are feeling stuck or uninspired it’s probably a sign that you are meant to do something more epic than what you are doing right now.
