I had grand plans of writing at least once a week once quarantine began, but I haven't. I think it would be good for my soul and all that if I did but for some reason, it's easier to just not. Today is day 41. Since then, I've left my house for some walks (which … Continue reading I Haven’t Written in a While (word vomit)
2019 - damn were you a year. Like everyone else on the planet, there were highs and lows and days that just felt fine. 2019 brought me lessons, laughter and my fair share of tears. 2019 brought me travel and adventure with the people I care about. So before 2019 melts into the other years, … Continue reading 2019: A Year in Review
We have a scratch off map at home with all the countries we've been to, and I'm having a serious moral dilemma. Can I scratch off North Korea now that we've been to the DMZ?! When we were in Korea a few weeks ago, we booked a tour to go to the DMZ - the … Continue reading A Casual Day at the DMZ
I'm trying to write all these thoughts out before too much time passes so that the details are still clear in my memory. Today is July 29th and we are 11 days into our 5 week trip through Asia and Australia. So I guess all of this word vomit is 11 days old. We left … Continue reading Singapore: Too Perfect?
I went to the DMZ yesterday (that's a story for another post), and along the way, in an effort to reduce my battery usage to increase Instagram story output, I rediscovered some of my old downloaded playlists. Does anyone remember Kodaline? I know they're still active, but let's be real, they peaked in 2014. They … Continue reading Do You Follow Your Fire?
I have been neglectful AF towards this blog - which is audacious considering I pay to have it! I don't even have a good excuse - I've been on summer break for the last two weeks doing nothing but going to yoga and annoying my husband. I thought it'd be fun to do a quick … Continue reading Life Lately
Just don't do it in someone's ear. Don't be that weirdo. It's been a long month. Things have happened that have made life difficult for me - emotionally, physically, and mentally. I took a break from writing, and quite frankly, a lot of other things as well (like kale and yoga). One thing that has … Continue reading Breathe, Loudly
It's bizarre how much of our identity is tied to our profession. Maybe it isn't so strange - we spend so much of our time at work, getting ready for work and unwinding from work. Work is where people tend to spend most of their days. It makes sense that our self worth is so … Continue reading I’m Not “Just” a Teacher
I had a lovely weekend, and I really needed it. I've felt so tired lately. I think it has to do with the monotony of the day to day life. We're 11 days away from Spring Break, and I am yearning for it and our trip. I'm so damn grateful that I have the opportunity … Continue reading A Lovely Weekend
I just had a flashback to my high school aerobics gym class. Every Friday we would do yoga and meditations (I know, I know - bougie AF). Our teacher would begin each meditation session by having us close our eyes, and saying that we are "exactly where we need to be." This has resonated with … Continue reading I’m Where I Need To Be
