Generation Entitlement

    0
Contrary to common beliefs, the Millennials aren’t the only entitled generation. In fact, most of us in this country feel entitled at some point in time. I define entitlement as, anytime you feel someone else should do something in your interest, in lieu of you doing something for yourself.We see examples of entitlement every day in this country. People expect the government to raise the...

Ahoj Praha

Hello Prague!  Have arrived with our group to our month two home. I don’t remember much of my previous visit to Prague back in high school so it was great to take a walking tour with the local team to get acquainted with the city.  Another great apartment and neighbourhood to get settled into and of course when in Prague, drinking the beer!    ...

Directionless in Prague

    0
We have arrived and settled into Prague, I couldn’t be happier, aside from the moments when I could be, which are when I feel truly physically lost.  Prague, being a well-sized and well-planned city (outside of The Old City), I had hoped I would be able to grasp the lay out and navigate much quicker than I have.  However; every time I go outside I...

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...

Reflections on Croatia and Time (and Survival)

    0
Was the last 5 weeks actually 3 months? Or two seconds? Time is such a strange concept. It’s one of our only constants, but it often “changes” based on how old we are, how busy we are, or how fast or slow we actually want it to pass. This morning, my would-be last yoga class got canceled, so I went for a run instead. The...

Yesterday, we had our city farewell party. There were little cue cards with fill in the blanks. One of them said “A month ago, I thought ____________”. Oddly, the first thought in my mind was that “I was really bad at my job”.But do note the past tense, this is not a sad post.There were two ways at Remote Year for me. I could try to work...

Nonsense Town

Not all days are good, not all days are bad, but some days can definitely fuck right off. Nearing the end of my first month on Remote Year in Split, Croatia has been a literal cocktail of emotions.  The root of my anxiety upon beginning this journey came from all of the unfamiliar and unknown variables.  Once I physically discovered those, adjusted, and made them...

Zipline“I ziplined before I went into work today ” — uncommon to hear in real life, but not unusual while on Remote Year.Thursday morning, a group of us made a trip to Omis to soak in some breathtaking views before we began our work day. There we went on a 3 hour zipline adventure flying back and forth between mountains and across the Cetina River. While ziplining may...
