My Goal: In 2010, I decided life is too short to be sitting at home waiting for adventure to come to me. I embraced life and now fill my days with inexpensive activities, artistic projects and outdoor urban+rural exploring. No more sitting around and no more excuses! I hope to give you new ideas and motivate you to get out and make the most of life. For a full explanation of how I began this journey, check out my first blog post. If you have any questions feel free to email me at lifeabsorbed@gmail.com. Thank you for reading!

About the blog: I’m all about saving money but I also need to be out on the town experiencing comedy, museums, events, and the great outdoors, so this blog is a way of helping others, like myself, find inexpensive fun wherever you are. This blog was started to spread information about events specifically in Los Angeles (as you’ll see in older posts) and now it’s all about New England. Even if you aren’t on the west coast or east coast, there’s plenty of posts from my travels around the world and I really hope you reading about the places I visit inspires you to get out and explore your own neighborhood. There’s so much fun to be had out there!

A little about me: I’m a 30 year old (single) female who spent the last 7 years in Los Angeles and am now a resident of New Haven, Connecticut. I grew up in a small town in Connecticut and graduated college from Rhode Island School of Design. I studied Interior Architecture and spent 7 years working as an Art Department Coordinator in the area of television. I’m now back in CT working part time in the family business and part time in my wood shop making projects for B Meyer Studio, LLC.

** I am not paid to advertise anything I post, and all of my reviews are based on my experiences. Hopefully this will help you find a fun cheap way to try something different in Los Angeles!

  1. Hey Bethany.
    Dropped in here cuz I linked one of my blog posts about Cape Cod (and Manhattan, and music, and television) to your Dec. 2011 post about the Cape. Cape Cod is one of my favorite places on the planet, which as a New Englander I’m sure you understand. (I’m a lifelong Chicagoan, but through my ex-wife’s family and my own personal interest, I adopted Massachusetts as a sort of second home.) Also setting part of my current novel in New Haven, Conn. Good stuff here on LifeAbsorbed. Thanks.

    Keep putting yourself out there. It’s a cold, complicated world, and us creative artists and idealistic hopefuls gotta stick together whenever we can!

  2. Hi Bethany,
    I enjoyed your post “New Haven Part II: The Yale Center for British Art” today, especially the photo you took inside the Louis Kahn-designed Yale Center for British Art. A treat for my eyes!

    • I would have loved to take more but there were guards all over the place. It was designed with a really open floor plan (which means it has great light for an art gallery) but it made it so hard to take a picture without a guard seeing. It was at this exact moment that all the guards were walking behind walls/columns/paintings. Glad you enjoyed the post! 🙂

  3. Beth,
    I can’t tell you how much I enjoy your blog…it is absolutely sensational! I’m living your life vicariously! Congrats on the wall climbing and the parachutting…from someone with a dread of heights, I’m in awe of your courage!
    Hope to see you soon!
    Uncle Doug

    • I’m glad you like it! Rock climbing and parachuting were so scary but totally worth it. My “gateway drug” to adventures would have to be surfing. Once I did that (and had a blast) I got to thinking of what other things in life am I afraid to do that are probably really fun once you get past the fear.
      Glad you like the blog!
      Love you,

      • You’re welcome. Blogging is a labor of love – I sometimes can’t believe the amount of time one short post actually may take too construct… so much to do, so little time, but it’s all good 🙂
        Have a great weekend!
