All Eyes On Me

Sometimes, I think about Jameer Nelson. It’s okay if you don’t know who he is. He had a better than average career in the NBA that fizzled out slowly over time. If my memory serves me right, he made the NBA Finals only once in his career. Actually, I know exactly when; it was 2009, […]

Kobe Bryant, My Hero

The notification one the man’s phone sang a tune. Apparently, it played the same jingle each time a notification came from the BBC World app because he recognized it immediately without looking at his phone. Before he pulled it out of his pocket, “Ah BBC World. If it’s from them, you know it’s important!” He […]

Choose Your Own Adventure!

I was chatting with a friend about my road trip. A couple months driving across New Zealand is kind of all I’m talking about lately. It’s going well! I’m stopping and staying wherever. I’ve been fortunate to do some of it alone, other parts with friends, and other portions with strangers. Back to my friend. […]

Road Trip: The Plan

So it’s been a little while since I posted a vlog about my road trip. You can watch my Road Trip: The Beginning pt 2, along with a conversation with my dear friend Robb. Since then I’ve started driving around here, there, and everywhere, going to different places and seeing the sites! I absolutely love […]

2020 Phrase of the Year

Apparently it’s common for people to have a word or phrase of the year. I’m big on goals for the year, you’ll see a vlog on that later, but a phrase that is supposed to represent you for an entire year. That’s intriguing. I think it’s a neat idea. You can run big decisions of […]

The Expat Experience

You put together the plan, you go through the process, you practice the questions, then when you’re finally ready, you record the podcast. So. Much. Fun. Podcasts have taken the world […]

Healing

Let me know if you’ve experienced this: You go out with an acquaintance/friend/someone, you spend some time around them and you leave telling yourself: “Wow, they have so much wrong them, it explodes onto me when I’m around them,” “They need to work on themselves, because they always bring the mood down,” or maybe even […]

New Zealand: Auckland Coast to Coast Trail

Here’s a fun fact: it rains a lot in New Zealand. More than I expected, that’s for sure. I’ve only been present for the winter and spring, so it makes sense. But the sunny days have been a bit sparse. Recently, on one of the sunny days, I was able to do this trail I […]

There are women who spent 20 minutes getting the right pose, in the right city, at the right time are a dime a dozen! […]
