the purpose of “lost upstate”

Welcome to my blog, Lost Upstate. If you want to know how a college graduate lives on a restricted income in a small town and how she makes the decisions she makes, you’ve come to the right place.


My name is Hannah, and I am twenty-five and trying to make a life for myself in upstate New York.  I recently bought a “fixer upper” for myself and my Chesapeake Bay Retriever, Charlie, in my hometown.

Life’s messes are bound to appear and that’s kind of the point.


If you want to see Western New York in all its glory: beautiful landscapes, home renovations, fresh-water fishing, and DIY projects, you’ve come to the right place.

If you want to sympathize with me while I hash out what it means to be a woman with an English degree in a small town, you’ve come to the right place.

If you like reading about money/debt problems, career aspirations, and rants about being lonely and confused, you might just love this blog.
