The True Cost of Voting Absentee

    0
As a lifelong American, I wholeheartedly believe that it is our civic duty to vote in as many elections as possible. As a member of Remote Year, I will be voting absentee for the first time in the 2016 Presidential election. At home, I am a registered voter with Travis County in Austin, Texas and have not missed a major election in a decade. I knew that this year...

Remote Profile: Charles Du

CHARLES DUENTREPRENEUR, CLOSE-UP MAGICIAN, EX-ROCKET SCIENTISTUSA WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO COME ON REMOTE YEAR? Growth. I've always grown the most when I travel. I get unplugged from media influences. I experience new adventures. I gather new ideas and perspectives. However, traveling also includes a lot of hassles. I don’t like to plan things, coordinate transportation, book lodging. Remote Year takes care of all of that. I get...

BAck In The Big City: I Like You, Buenos Aires

    0
Is it even possible to type FUERZA BRUTA in lowercase letters? Has anyone ever done that? Forty-eight hours after the epic performance, I’m still trying to find words to describe its noise, lights, movement and sensory overload. There were aerial dancers and drums and a giant moving pool and swimmers and SO much dancing and I loved every second. The show was a fitting end...

CALIFORNIA’S HIGHWAY ONE

    0
Growing up on the California coast, there are certain things we take for granted: The fact that the ocean is always immediate, that the landscape in and around home is dramatic and beautiful, and that the weather is mostly pleasant. Not until I went to college in St. Louis did I truly understand and appreciate the singularity and wonderfulness of the California coast.Having moved back to...

Tango: The Art of Walking on Air

    0
The more I watch people of all ages and skill levels dance tango here in Argentina, the more I imagine it looking like gliding across the floor, floating and suspended just so in the air - effortless and graceful. Again and again, it comes down to non-verbal communication through body language: lead and follow, reacting and adjusting in real-time to the smallest movements that indicate where...

AARON BARTNICKPOLITICAL & NON-PROFIT PROJECTSUSA WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO COME ON REMOTE YEAR? I strongly believe that the act of travel--the physical movement, adjusting to new cultures, and forced expansion of our comfort zones--is one of the highest-yield personal growth opportunities in the world. I've been fortunate enough to travel a decent amount for work and pleasure, but have never lived outside of the northeast...

WEEK 7 RECAP: More-ROCK-oh

    0
Week 7 is over and…well, I’m still in Africa. This month is going so slow and yet it’s flying by at the same time. The longer I’m here the more it feels like real life and the more carbs I’m eating. This week brought two great side trips, which is crazy considering how long it takes to get anywhere from where I’m living. Rabat is...

My Life Isn’t As *Perfect* As It Looks On Instagram

    0
A few weeks ago, I made a joke on my Instagram story about having a difficult travel day, and woke up to a message from a complete stranger telling me I need to “put things into perspective” because most people don’t have the luxury of traveling often enough to get to bitch about it. He had a point, sure, but also? You don’t know my life,...

Week 6 – Cameron Highlands

First trip inland, and what an experience! Unlike anything we had encountered in Malaysia so far, it was foggy, cold – and simply enchanting! Tea plantations, culture and history, and some hikes for the books. Watch my latest adventures in the Cameron Highlands in Central Malaysia!

Carménère & Meal Pairings

    0
Every wine has a great story, regardless of which winemaker or country it comes from. However, Carménère, which so closely resembles Merlot, was thought to be just that. Merlot. As Wine Folly tells it, “Carménère was thought to be Merlot when it was first transplanted into Chile. This case of mistaken identity is perhaps what...

Everything Is A Mirror

“We don’t see things as they are. We see things as we are.” – Anaïs Nin I remember the first time I picked up a pair of drum sticks. It was twenty years ago, in the midst of a season that found me painfully shy, timid, and self-conscious. However, I never once questioned if I wanted to play the drums. I had absolutely no doubt...

Diary: Everything I own fits in a suitcase and why the hell did I have so much stuff

I'm moving out of my SF apartment in 2 days and my relationship with "stuff" has become very strange. For the past two weeks, I've had to take a hard look at everything I own and ask myself, "do I really need this?" It's incredible how often the answer is no.Where does all this garbage come from? Why do I keep mountains of useless trinkets, doodads, and...

Don’t Be an Asshole in the Name of “Just Being Honest”

    0
A few years ago, I met a guy on OKCupid (We’ll call him Patrick) and we went out a couple of times. It was clear from the start that we weren’t romantically compatible, but we decided to become friends. We would sometimes hang out, grab a beer or two and exchange dating stories. Neither of us were having much luck finding a partner, so we...

Stop Holding Yourself Back with Limiting Beliefs

    0
As a kid, most of us are taught we can do anything we put out minds to. We are loaded with inspiration quotes, such as, "Nothing is impossible, the word itself says I'm Possible." We are told that all we need to do is work hard and we will have the lives we want. So, why is it that so few of us are out chasing...
