A quick introduction to myself: My name is Sam and I’m a college student at a small liberal arts school in the middle of nowhere. Next year I get to spend several months in London studying at Queen Mary University and I couldn’t be more excited!

A quick introduction to my blog: Since I’ll be abroad I wanted to document it somehow. But I also wanted to document my life in general. A lot of the things here are going to be, no surprise, Postcards and Polaroids. There will, occasionally, be longer written posts and, hopefully soon, also vlogs.

Thanks for stopping by!


A longer piece for those sticking around: Besides Postcards and Polaroids I run a book blog, which I’ll just be linking, once, here. I want to maintain a distance between the two, at least for now. I’ve been blogging on and off for around five years and while I adore book blogging I’ve always wanted a lifestyle blog. Now, this isn’t exactly that, but it’s pretty close. I love the idea of documenting my life digitally and I’m so glad to be able to share it with you all.

When I post here I think you’ll notice two big things: one is that the Postcards and Polaroids will stand mostly on their own with very little added text. I mean, come on, it’s art after all. Then there will be more bloggy pieces and vlogs. I plan to start posting the vlogs after I arrive in London, which will be in early January, so don’t hold your breath at the moment.

Thanks for reading and I hope you stick around for more!
