About Me

Welcome to Running Into Joy! This blog is all about my personal journey of running into joy wherever I can, in the hopes you can relate and maybe find some good ideas, too.

My name is Amanda Kay Oaks. I’m a writer, student affairs professional, and educator living in Pittsburgh, PA with my fiancé, Andy, and my Blue Heeler pup, Azula.
As you can probably tell from my content, I love all things yoga, baking, running, and am also a huge nerd at heart. Talk to me for too long and I will almost undoubtedly quote The Glass Cannon Podcast at you in a weird voice and pretend that’s a normal thing people do.
I started this project as a way to keep myself writing regularly post MFA, and to connect with other folks just trying to figure their way through this thing called life.
Current project: The Great British Blog Off, where I’m baking my way through an entire Great British Bake Off cookbook because, you know, why not?
