A little about me…
My name is Sarah Messer.
I love Jesus, dark chocolate, music, Spanish, 7/11 Slurpees, adventure, Chick-Fil-A and planes.
I’ve been blessed to be able to attend Lipscomb University in Nashville, Tenn., and work for the school in the Admissions department. I’m a double major in Spanish and Public Relations. I live with my best friends.
I’m a really confused sports fan. My first love being the Ohio State Buckeyes (born in Columbus), I also follow the Detroit Lions and Red Wings (I’ve lived in Metro Detroit since age 12), Indianapolis Pacers and Colts (I spent ages 4 to 12 living just outside Indianapolis during the Tony Dungy – Peyton Manning – Marvin Harrison era).
I technically only have one sibling, a younger brother named Nate. However, there is a group of boys that are almost always at our house in some combination, that I refer to collectively as “the brothers.” They call my mother “Mom” and I’ve been asked more than once by strangers in public if we’re all related. My family also took in a foreign exchange student from Spain, named Aurora, during my junior year of high school. I love her and miss her like she’s been my sister my entire life.
A little about this blog…
As I often feel pulled between concrete places and the people I love within them, the world fluctuates between feeling too big and spread out, to feeling incredibly small and interconnected. This blog will serve as a way to share my experiences making Nashville my newest home through memories, adventures, changes, faith, music and friends, while also having pieces of my heart in other locations. After all, you know what they say: home is where the heart is.
Every Mile a Memory
560. The distance between my family’s house in Canton, Michigan to Lipscomb University where I now study. Sometimes this feels just close enough, and other times like we’re on opposite ends of the planet.
192. The comparatively short distance driven regularly between my family’s house in Michigan and my grandparents’ house in Ohio.
3,982. The miles I traveled by myself over the summer to spend 3 weeks with my Spaniard sister and her biological family in Madrid.
4,928. The distance I plan to travel to study abroad for 3 months next spring in Santiago, Chile.
