A New Beginning to Jared Hoffman’s Adventures

Welcome!

For the first time since this blog debuted in fall 2019, I am actually going to publish it. That means I will actually publish posts once or twice a week. This time I am dedicated.

When I created this blog, I had every intention of keeping it going during the spring semester, but the semester was busy and I had fallen out of touch with the blog.

Now I am back and better than ever.

One can see that most of the post from before are gone, mainly because they did not follow the theme very well. This time I am actually going to talk about my adventures.

Daily adventures, big adventures, and my passion for traveling all over the world.

I hope to not be like everyone in the world who writes travel blogs on big trips and the highlights of life. I want to share literally everything, including the small things, mainly I want to encourage everyone to take an adventure.

Of course, I do have some big adventures coming up, including a study abroad experience in France in the fall, an exciting internship at PNC, and my beach vacation next week.

I have also had many other big adventures over the past few months including a spectacular trip to Miami and moving into my own apartment (that is still a new thing).

Where the real meat of the blog might be, however, is the everyday things I have been doing to try to make it in this world. Including but not limited to driving post mates, door dash, instacart, and doing a service called wag.

I do have to admit, however, that in the fall this is going to be a huge study abroad blog stay tuned for that.

So I hope that you will go on this adventure of life with me, I really hope you do. Writing is an outlet for me to help me be occupied and have fun, especially when I am alone. So please join me.

One tip for the day before I go, if you ever want to have a fun little adventure, watch music videos from your childhood, you will be amazed about how things from ten years ago have changed.

Best,

Jared

Changing Paths

Hello everyone,

Sorry I have been away for a while. Life has been hectic lately. I started this blog in September with the hopes of inspiring you to treat everyday life as an adventure. With that in mind, I would like to share the adventure that we will be embarking on (hopefully together), for the next year.

This blog was something I was unsure about. I didn’t know where it would go. Finally, I do know where it will be going.

To end the suspense, the new adventure I will be going on is studying abroad. I will study in the French Riviera during the Fall of 2019. It has taken a lot too get to the point I am at today.

From not wanting to go to college. To choosing the wrong college. To transferring schools. Then to the challenges I have faced since coming to Pitt Greensburg. It has all been a prologue too what is about to happen.

Over the next several months, we will be embarking on adventure that will bring many challenges. It will be hard at points. The reward is going to be a once and a lifetime experience.

Below is a podcast telling the story of how I got to this point in my life. I hope you enjoy, and will continue along with me as we change the path we are on today.

Our Adventures Begin

IMG_1599Hello! Welcome to Jared Hoffman Adventures.

As you probably guessed my name is Jared Hoffman.  I am a twenty-year old college student from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and I love adventure. Lucky for me, I believe that our everyday life is an adventure. We never know what will happen from one day to the next.

As someone who loves to write, I do my best daily to journal.  Now I want to share some of my adventure with you.  However, I don’t want this to be all about me. While I will talk about some of my most fabulous adventures of daily life, I will also tell the stories of others along the way.

This blog is not like Facebook. I am not here to tell you every last detail of my life or complain.  I want this to be a place of positivity, inspiration, and support for others. Somewhere along the way, I would like to include you to, and highlight your most exciting adventures.

Often, I see people who think their lives are lame and pointless. I do not always know why that is. With our entire lives now on social media, many of us see the best adventures of people. Lavish vacations, front row seats at concerts, and other special experiences seem to be normal.

For many people life starts to seem pointless. They can not afford to be like their idols on social media. That family beach vacation seems less valuable. Those nosebleed seats at the hockey game just aren’t enough.  Everyday life is not enough.

The truth is, I don’t believe life has to be lavish for it to be an adventure.  Everyday is an adventure. Your walk to class, drive to work, and family dinner is an adventure. Its time that someone talks about it. Thats why I am here.

Our adventures will be very different from week to week.  No two adventures will ever be alike. Some adventures are hard, even challenging. While others are the best time of our lives. Whatever our adventure is, we will always learn something.

Life is short, challenging, and rewarding. We only live one life.  Why not make it an adventure. I cannot wait to share my adventures with everyone. Thank you for being a part of something that I believe will truly be special.
