the future freaks me out

I have no clue what I'm doing, I have no clue where I'm going. While I know that I don't need to have a definite 10 year life plan at the moment, I need to have some sort of clue, at least some semblance of an idea. I need to make some sort of plan. … Continue reading the future freaks me out

Love Abroad

What happens when you fall in love abroad? I thought that would be a question I would never need to figure out the answer to, a problem I would never face.

Living (abroad) with anxiety 

Anxiety is like the giant elephant in the room. Something you always feel, always see, but no one else notices it... or wants to talk about it.

ONE MORE YEAR!

These past two months have been a complete and utter whirlwind (ergo why I haven't had much time to write). Full of ups and downs (mostly ups), lots of reflection on my past 11 months living in Europe, and just time enjoying this wonderful place and traveling. The biggest news... I am officially staying in … Continue reading ONE MORE YEAR!

Bringing a slice of home to Barcelona

Sometimes living abroad it is difficult to do "normal" things, or things you constantly do when living at home. You don't always realize how much you miss those things until you're reminded of them, either via a photo on social media, or just happening upon something one day. Sometimes it makes you homesick, sometimes it … Continue reading Bringing a slice of home to Barcelona
