The sacrifice

Signed in Paris, but lowkey mad

    0
I don't think of myself as an angry person. But this is in the context of Washington, D.C., where our politics are poisonous and the well-meaning liberals who want to change the world are gentrifying the city block by block. I consider myself one of those "go with the flow types", generally believing that everything will work out and that when life acts up all...

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?...

You have to make one

I can't imagine what it was like for those first few subscribers to click on my Youtube channel when I first started it in January of 2017. They watched one video, liked what they saw, and decided they cared enough to subscribe--with nothing else on my page. Without knowing me at all.Without any other example that I could create meaningful content.I always knew I would have...

Ia Wik is a 24 year old Swede living in the nation’s capital, Stockholm. As fashionable as she is funny, she also happens to be my best friend’s sister. Like most of the people I’ve met in their twenties, she’s trying to figure out how to make her passions a reality and where she fits. If she’s not working or studying, she’s listening to podcasts,...

I got my first job out of graduate school at a small non-profit with dreams a lot bigger then it's  staff.Like a lot of people living in the D.C. area and drawn to its cherry blossom streets, I was an overachiever. I not only believed in the power of the individual to change the world but thought I and the people I knew would be...

New York to Stockholm: From Night to Day

    0
My last four days in America were spent in New York City, where I then flew to Stockholm on a red eye flight. The difference between these two cultures was more surprising than I anticipated. New York City is a place that requires very little description. All one has to do is say the name and hundreds of images and opinions are probably already spinning...
