You know that person who says things she probably shouldn’t even be thinking, will start a conversation with anyone, and will do just about anything for a laugh? Well, imagine that person with an East Coast accent and about 3 Five Hour Energy Drinks in her system. Nice to meet you, I’m Chelsey Leader Brooks.
I spent the greater part of my 25 years on earth on the East Coast, specifically New York, Connecticut and Boston. After bopping around the country a little after I graduated from Boston University, I landed in St. Louis. So that answers your first question: no, you will not know what high school I went to, and which high school you went to means nothing to me.
I’m starting life in “the ‘Lou” and I’m going to explore what makes this city so many people’s life partner. I want to see all there is to see, do all there is to do, taste all there is to eat, and most importantly, share my journey with you. I’m hoping my clean slate, go-get-em, I hate being bored attitude will help open the eyes of even the most veteran St. Louisians to new things to do and experience in their hometown. Think of me as a female, curly haired Christopher Columbus with New York attitude. I’m about to explore St. Louis, learn from the natives, fall in love with this “Midwest new world”, and hopefully claim it as my home.
