How to Enjoy Joshua Tree in the Age of the Pandemic

    0
After road tripping around California, I can happily say that you can still enjoy Joshua Tree, safely, soundly, and respectfully during this pandemic. Road trips have become all the rage in the United States this year, as most are too afraid to fly and/or not able to fly internationally. This means that campsites are flooded with people, and national parks have a new influx in...

2020 U.S. Election Guide: What Measures Across the Nation Will Affect Human Trafficking

    0
This is a U.S. election year, so the biggest way we can participate now is by our vote. Local government and local laws have the biggest direct impact on our citizens. So how you vote and what you fund and support in your own state matters the most. Local ballot measures matter, but it can be hard to know what they mean at face value....

The sacrifice

    0
It can be tricky deciding how much of what you care about is you, and how much of it is what your culture has told you is valuable. I often feel this push and pull when it comes to working on my passions. Editing is lonely work, it needs to be done in quiet and it takes hours of intense concentration. But our culture, and...

How I Stopped Complaining

    0
I used to include just a single affirmation, “Every day in every way, I am getting better and better,” in my morning routine. Over the years, this has blossomed into several paragraphs describing how I show up, multiple Bible verses about my faith, a few lines of poetry about my new city, and a slick 6-page slide deck vision board about my future. (I might...

Remote Year: One Month Reflection

    1
It’s weird to think that I’ve been traveling for almost 2 months now, and almost all of that has been international. It’s even weirder to think that I’ve been living in Lisbon for five weeks and it completely feels like home. So much so that the idea of moving to Croatia tomorrow fills me with anxiety, and leaves me a little bit sad. Leave Lisbon?...

Remote Year Month #8 in Review: Lisbon

I can’t believe I have now wrapped up my time in Europe. Lisbon was an incredible city to end the experience in, full of culture, captivating beach waves and incredible port close by.

Friendship breakups are weird and hard

Friendship break ups are a mysterious thing. Unlike regular breakups, where we have rituals, romcoms, cliches, basically a script to follow, friendship breakups are a much murkier proposition.How do you tell a friend that your lives no longer align? That you no longer find the relationship mutually beneficial? You don't dislike the person, you just aren't inclined to spend time or energy to continue to...

The Coast

While almost every place I see on my travels holds value, the coasts and beaches have really continued to be my favourites.  The west coast of Chile was no different.  Concon was the highlight of the day with its smaller but increasingly modern vibes and largely untouched coast.   A place I could see myself returning to visit for a longer stay.   Concon Vina Del...
