Introducing Just Keep Swimming ~ My New Blog

Introducing my new blog Just Keep Swimming. When contemplating what to name my new blog, I wanted something that reflected how I live life. This motto can apply to the young and old. We all have times when life gets you down, and what do you do? Well for me I Just keep swimming ahead and enjoying life. I have always been a person who loves to live in the moment. I’m an explorer, always looking for something new to discover and experience. You can expect me to bring you the latest things going on in my world as I Just Keep Swimming!

@mjsmith0523 ~ Who am I?


Hello I’m Matthew. I’m a recent college graduate living in Chicago. I attended Roosevelt University in the heart of the Chicago Loop. When I moved to Chicago four years ago, I would never realized what an impact it would have on my life. I have had the opportunity to live and learn in the heart of Chicago. Being just a few blocks away from public transportation the city was at my finger tips. One hobby that I am passionate about has been photography, whether I’m puling out me digitalSLR or  just my iphone. I try to share just a little of my WORLD with my followers. My friends would also tell you that I love a good #selfie. Besides Photography I am an avid Social Media User, a Disney Geek, an ΑΦΩ Brother, a LGBT Activist, and Foodie.

Each morning I remind myself to live each day to the fullest and not to pass up any opportunities that may come my way. To keep myself open to any new experiences and always be willing to try any thing at least once Because you never know what you may like.
