Thank you so much for visiting my website!
This is a place for community, togetherness, and understanding. Or it might be more of a place for isolation and a little bit of misanthropy. I go back and forth. Below are a few of my favorite posts to help you get a sense of what I'm talking about, and if those aren’t enough for you, be sure to check out the blog for all my latest ramblings.
I spent all of last week, eight days to be exact, in Costa Rica on the Caribbean side near the small town of Puerto Viejo de Talamanca. I know it was only a week and it was only a vacation. It was mainly lying on the beach and drinking Corona. It wasn’t challenging or harrowing or even that unique, yet still I’ve been struggling with the question of how to describe my time there.
Now that I have decided to make long-term travel a part of my life, my brain has been working overtime to convince me that this is just another passing whim, one that I cannot possibly hope to achieve; much like the time I decided to start sewing all my own clothing, or when I vowed to eat only salad for lunch everyday from then until the day I died (presumably from boredom after sitting down to my 500th consecutive lunch salad).
Women can tooootally do lots of awesome and important stuff in the church except-hold-the-highest-position-of-leadership-because-2000-years-ago-only-dudes-did-that, but ladies are like soooooo good at so many other things, don’t you agree?
Think of how far you’ve come since you first began breaking up with people. Smirk as you remember the adolescent breakups, the ones where no words were exchanged. He just stopped coming to your locker between classes so you burned all the letters he ever gave you. Orange flames consuming glitter gel pen on folded notebook paper.
