OOTD: Plus Size Maxi Dresses

    0
I have never worn a plus size maxi dress. Ever. It’s just never been my thing. I have wide hips, smaller legs, and a small bust. Shopping is hard enough as a curvy lady with only some curves! The idea of finding a maxi dress that is flattering and doesn’t do some weird scrunching on my hips and ass seemed impossible. Guess I just needed...

I Jumped Off a Bridge (and You Can Too!)

    0
Usually a leap of faith isn’t meant literally. When I spent the weekend in Guatapé, Colombia I didn’t even realize I would be taking one. The experience was already better than I was expecting. The group of us, who had been traveling together for 11 months with Remote Year, rode on the top of vans down the breathtaking countryside, hiked up to see landscape views...

Neil Jennings and I had finished a very successful presentation at Peter Wald’s HRInnoDay2019 with Octagon Careers, our start-up, which we left everything to pursue.My back was a little sore. My mom asked me to please get it checked out. I said it was nothing. She convinced...

In some … The post Seeking Spirit...

Sak Yant Tattoo in Cambodia

    0
For many years of my life I always firmly believed that I would never get a tattoo. That mentality wasn’t because I hated tattoos or had any negative beliefs towards them, I simply never thought I’d come across any options that had enough meaning for me to permanently mark my body. I’ve always enjoyed seeking people display their body art … The post Sak Yant...

Know Thyself

Most people who have heard the phrase “know thyself” hardly pause to give much contemplation to its meaning. The path to grasping the depth of this statement is unending and can take a person on multidimensional journeys of self-awareness and exploration, but where does one begin? There is undoubtedly a massive growth of consciousness happening on the planet, but there … The post Know Thyself...

Hanoi wrap up: Thoughts on month 5

    0
(a.k.a. the sweatiest, smelliest, craziest month yet) Background Hanoi is the capital city of Vietnam and has a population around 8 million, according to the latest numbers. It’s sometimes dubbed the “Paris of the East,” due to the French influences (though I think that is MUCH TOO generous). One of the first things we asked

(today is the greatest…day of all)

Today is my 28th re-birth day. A noticeable pause in the story of life to catalog a chapter passed and set a thesis for the next one ahead. Since our last check-in on my 27th birthday when I was feeling “on top of the world” – new city, new job, new apartment, etc., things have noticeably come back down to reality from the initial high...

Minutes to the workspace: 12 grueling, sweat soaked minutes, according to google. Style: studio apartment Roommates:
