Unrequited Love

    0
I’m in love with someone and they don’t love me back. It’s mostly ok. Minus the screaming part. I feel like I’m a catch. He makes me feel like shit. That’s the thing, right? About unrequited love? Unreasonable? Overwhelming? Pathetic? It would be one thing to be a twenty-something and feel this way. The world is your oyster then. Now? Dried up. Old. Over the...

Is Santiago, chile a cheap place to live?

    0
Remote Year generally takes us to fairly inexpensive cities, at least by US standards. If you think about it, that has to be their business model: they receive a set amount of money ($2000/month) from each remote, and they have to minimize their costs in order to turn a profit. As a result, I sort

Geishas are Not Sex Workers: A Reflection on Travel in Japan

    0
I saw the movie Memoirs of a Geisha a few plane rides ago. Wanting to learn something about the city and the culture I would soon be spending a month living in, Kyoto, Japan, I did what any reasonable person would do. I ignored books and articles and went straight to the movies.If you haven’t seen it (and knowing what I know now, I wouldn’t recommend it), the...

7 Years Gone?

    0
Exactly one year ago today, I told Rachel Black, who was sitting on my couch with a glass of Prosecco in hand, that there was no way in hell I was going to a Memphis horse show. If I went, I would undoubtedly walk away with a new horse and I didn’t have the time or money to dedicate to the sport. Rachel thought I was...

Getting my Ocean Fix in San Diego

    0
I had grown accustomed to seeing the ocean every day while living in Charleston. It was a short two blocks away and I’d walk down to it every morning before work. When I decided I was going to move out to Phoenix, I knew I’d be giving up my ocean views but I didn’t anticipate how quickly I’d miss it. Just a few weeks into...

My musings on South Korea

    0
South Korea is a perplexing country. The companies and brands it has produced are far more famous than the happenings within the country and it is often overlooked as a place to travel to. One of the bigger tourist activities within South Korea is to enter the DMZ zone and have a look at their neighbor to the north, North Korea, so people go to...

Santiago apartment and office tour

    0
APARTMENT In Santiago we live and work in the Lastarria, Bellas Artes, and Bellavista neighborhoods. Locals have commented to me that we are in a not-so-nice part of town, and the remotes have definitely had a tough time in Chile in that regard. The group that came through town last month had 6 people (that

How to Be Creative with Weekly Bullet Journal Layouts

    0
Having a bullet journal has been one of the greatest things I have ever done for my own productivity! I know it’s 2019 and I should be all about the apps and online calendars, but I’m still old school at heart. I love taking the time to write in my physical journal and fill in my paper calendar. Plus, my bujo (bullet journal for short)...
