Hi there and welcome to my little corner of the internet! I’m Cheryl, author and creator behind Cents of Lens.
If you’re reading this, then you’re probably wondering “Who is she and why should I read the content on her blog?”
Chances are, you and I are one and the same. We’re Millenials trying to chase our dreams in a world where we can’t find the time or money to do so. We wake up every day and go through the same motions. We’re alive, but are we living our lives, or are our lives living us?
It can be so easy to think that our lives are set.
Every day, we wake up, we go to school or work, we come home and we repeat the cycle day in and day out. Have you ever questioned if this was everything life had to give? Asked yourself if this was how you wanted to live out every day for the rest of your life?
We’ve been in the education system for most of our lives, racked up thousands in debt, and now we begin the painstaking process of paying them off.
My blog will mainly be focused on life as a student, with a dose of lifestyle, travel and all things in between.
My passions have always been reading and writing. My parents basically raised me in libraries and bookstores, so it’s no wonder that I developed a love of reading. These days, you won’t find me anywhere without an ebook on hand, ready to read should I ever have nothing to do. As a little girl, I would carry around with me a notebook that I used to write short stories. Now, I’m able to channel that creativity into this blog.
Some of my favourite pastimes are photography and videography, occasionally exploring conceptual photography and making short films about my travels. My dream is to one day travel the globe with a camera in hand, creating content that I love and am proud of.
Welcome to the first leg of my journey!
