Hi! Welcome to my blog! I’m Samantha; a
teenager adult who blogs about everything from homeschooling to frugality to World War II. I began this blog in June 2013 as a way to share my passions and knowledge with others, and I never dreamed it would grow into what it has became today.
I’m a college freshman, and work as a graphic designer and the official CEO of The Parsi Company. Unprofessionally, I am a writer, book-lover, and WWII historian. I love politics, frugality, homeschooling, and procrastination. When not blogging, I mostly spend my time reading, experimenting with Photoshop, trying to speak Hebrew, and wasting time on Pinterest. Like my blog, I continue to be a work in progress, and I am continually growing.
For almost four years, my blog was known as Le Chaim on the Right. “Le Chaim” (pronounced “hayyim”) means “To Life” in Hebrew. Conservatives are right-wing, hence “On The Right.” So, my blog title was literally “To Life on the Right.” However, I wanted a something a little more broad (and easier to pronounce!) that still reflected me, and thus Creative, Clever and Classy was born!
A few other random facts about me:
- I live in Indiana, USA.
- I was adopted from China at six months old.
- I’ve been homeschooled since fourth grade.
- My favorite band is Casting Crowns.
- I am fluent in movie quotes.
- I am a guest contributor at True Aim Education, Homeschool Encouragement, and Free Homeschool Deals.
My 5 Life Quotes:
