So, I finally started a blog

    0
When I was at home and telling people about Remote Year, one of the first questions they asked was, “are you going to write a blog?” I kept giving a non-chalant – “oh yeah, I’m sure I’ll set up a blog at some point…” …and I kept meaning to set one up, but it got lost in the shuffle of other preparations. Now that I’m...

Initial Impressions

    0
Sunset in Montevideo After a lot of anticipation, planning, anxiety, packing, hugs and tears (my mom's not mine), I arrived in Montevideo, Uruguay on Sunday afternoon. I flew out of D.C. on Saturday night and caught a connecting flight from Miami to Montevideo. There were at least 15 other Remotes on my flight and I met a few of them standing in line to board...

Meet Empanadas

We're in Montevideo!via GIPHYIt's pretty great. The weather is nice, the people are nicer, and according to canidrinkthewater.org, the answer is yes, the water is fine. We've only been in the city for a few days-- and there are 75 new names to remember-- but we're already full on at the office and quickly integrating with the local community.  Our office for the month -...

Ometepe, Nicaragua

    0
Ometepe was not my favorite place. A quiet island on a very large lake, this area is tropical and has interesting wildlife, but not much culture or liveliness to it. I would come back only with a group or for a specific activity. I'm also jaded from seeing too many lakes and volcanoes recently ;). To reduce the amount of concrete, this school was built...

Looking Over The Horizon

    0
“Write a letter to your future self” That was the task given to myself and more than five hundred classmates as we filed into high school orientation on a balmy late-August morning. “You’ll receive this letter back with your high school diploma when you leave Highland Park High School,” the instructions continued. Like nearly everyone else, with the thought of graduation inconceivably far off and giddy to move...

Navigating the World of Volunteer Event Management

    0
Event planning is a 5 billion dollar industry. It’s a beast, with lots of specialties and niches. One that I’ve become intimately familiar with over the last few years is the volunteer event planning niche. This experience came in the form of House of Genius, Startup Weekend and on a larger scale, PHX Startup Week. All of these events are entirely fueled by local volunteers. When...

Last Minute Reflections

    0
The days have gone by SO fast, yet everything feels the same. Looking back at my calendar at the outpouring of love shown the last few weeks is amazing. With it though comes the realization that I haven’t really had time to reflect on what I’m doing, just powering through getting everything done before I go. As of today, everything is in storage and I’ve reduced my...

Goodbye Split

1 Second Everyday for the month and some photos from our last few days in Split, Croatia.  1SE is an app that lets you compile a second of everyday for a set time into a video.  It wasn’t always easy to remember to do it with so much going on, but I am happy with how it turned out.  Month one will be hard to...

4 cafés favoris à Split

Je crois que je n’apprendrai rien à personne en disant que j’adore le café. Une des choses que je préfère à la maison est d’aller lire dans un nouveau café le week-end. Je suis contente de pouvoir étendre mes découvertes de cafés cool à l’international! Donc voici quelques endroits où je suis allé ce mois-ci à Split. Caffe-restoran Dvor La vue à elle seule vaut...

I Get Up Again

    0
Guys. It’s been 7 months since I posted ANYTHING here. That’s crazy. I’m sorry. I dreaded logging into this website and writing anything for those 7 months. I’m not totally sure why. But I’m back. I got knocked down, but I got up again. And I’ve got words to say. Because a lot has changed in those 7 months. And in the two years since...

You have left all your existing relationships behind, and your new life will be day in day out...

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

    0
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...

Snubbed at the club

    0
I am angry, and think I have almost every right to be. I guess angry is an overstatement — annoyed is more valid. So yeah, I’m annoyed because a guy I knew snubbed me on Saturday night, and that shit doesn’t fly in my book. Remember when I went on a Tinder date to celebrate my 1-year-anniversary of the blog? Well, this is the story to go...

Lima, Peru: Tour D’Horizon

    0
Lima is a gorgeous colonial city that sits in a fog for most of the year above a long coastline of crumbling cliffs. The Pacific waves, and noisy traffic reminds you of Southern California, but with a Latin American flare. It is a sophisticated city with roots, and a civilization that goes back nearly five centuries. It is one of the oldest cities in the...
