I set a goal this week to write one blog post. This is it. I should be studying and completing my online courses. I will. I have until Saturday. I've not written anything for months, so it's like where to begin. Maybe I'll do another post on my summer recap. For now, I rant. We're… Continue reading A Procrastination Brain Dump
Moving abroad is of course an exciting adventure, learning about a new city, culture, language, adapting work...it feels a little like going off to college. A lot people's college days were filled with endless studying but also parties. But only this time, you have actual money to spend. Living and working abroad for me (right… Continue reading Arrested Development or Extended Adolescence?
There's a saying that you are the average of the five people you spend the most time with. I also like this scripture: He who walks with the wise grows wise, but a companion of fools suffers harms.Proverbs 13:20 NIV And whether you're trying to build a successful business or just get your life together,… Continue reading The People You Need To Be Successful
2020 is feeling like the start from hell tbh. Between the myriad of natural disasters, plane crashes, coronavirus and loss of many loved ones, it’s hella rough. So before I dive into my random, remember to treat pain with tenderness. In the midst of seeing so many mourn the loss of Kobe Bryant, his daughter… Continue reading The Holders of Forgiveness
Do you ever talk with someone who has so many great ideas and business concepts, who would thrive as an entrepreneur but then they never do anything with their ideas? I do. I am someone. Someone is me. Me is someone. I know I'm not alone so this is for all of we out there.… Continue reading The Great Divide: Thinking to Doing
In this moment of procrastination, I thought I'd clear my mind... For a few days now a question keeps popping into my head: does a person need to constantly be trying to "level up"? Is it basic to be content right where you are with what you have and your daily routines? Are people that… Continue reading Questions
My ideal summer would have been spent traveling through Southeast Asia, hubby and I. Visiting the Thai islands that are still on my list of places to see and exploring the unknown. New locations, new foods, new experiences abroad…I love all of it. That did not happen and that’s okay. Instead, I went back to… Continue reading Summertime Recap
The nature of working abroad in an international school is much like being an international student abroad: when you start, everything is new, exciting and fresh. It takes a little to settle in and you cling to your fellow newbies like a life vest because it feels like you're in open water. You spend the… Continue reading When People Leave
I've just recently turned 30, and from what I've heard, the 30s are lit and I'm looking forward to the lit years, but in the meantime, I have to point out how inadequate of an adult I feel sometimes. I'm calling it delayed adulting syndrome: a condition in which the feeling of being an adult… Continue reading Delayed Adulting Syndrome
And I'm a little panicky on the inside. When I was 18/19, I couldn't even envision what I wanted my life to look like by the time I got to 30. I had visions of the future but never at a specific age. I knew that I wanted to be done with school by 25… Continue reading I’m 30.
