Raison D’etre – About Me

Raison D’Etre – The Who, What, When, Where, Why, and How (aka “About Me“)


  • Who Am I?

My name is Michelle.  Hopefully the pictures below will tell a little bit of my story for you, but I am sure you’ll get a better sense of who I am as time goes on.  I am 32-years old and recently engaged.


A little more about me:

I love photography – every picture on this website is my own.  I also like to sing and I can speak varying degrees of Japanese, Korean, Chinese.  I am currently learning Hindi – hopefully one day I can impress my mother-in-law ^_^


  • What is this site all about?

Me.  Wow that sounds so egotistical, but it’s true.  Of course, like most things, the original purpose has evolved over time, but it seems that I can’t just focus on one thing.  So now I focus on nothing! LOL  A lot of the things I write about will probably be along the lines of food, travel, languages, etc.  because I love this stuff.  But, if you scoot around on my site, you’ll see that it’s not just a travel blog or a food blog.  It’s an everything blog.  I hope you’ll find something you like, and when you do, leave a message for me and whomever comes along next!


  • When am I going to do this?

Ah well, that’s a killer question, really.  But, in the end, whenever I want :D  Or whenever you want!  If you have a questions or would like an answer to something, I may (or may not) be your gal!  What the hell, give it a shot and leave a message : D


  • Where am I?

I am currently commuting between India and Columbus, Ohio.  Go Bucks!



  • Why am I doing this?




  • How am I going to accomplish all of this?


Who knows – that’s part of the adventure!


I hope that works for you ^_^  And if it doesnt, well, you likely didn’t read this far anyway! : D


Let’s get to know each other – leave a message below!
