Is this networking??

So, I have a confession…I love blogging! I love the wordpress community. I love reading other blogs. I love commenting and interacting with other bloggers. I love writing on my blog. Even though some days I don’t feel like writing; I know that if I just sign into wordpress and read a few posts, I…

I’m Back!

So, I’m back from taking a break from blogging. I’ve had an amazing, and refreshing summer, with a lot of fun, and silly moments, and a lot of reflection moments. It was a well balanced summer (with work and beach days and hikes to the top of mountains). I feel refreshed, and ready to start…

Taking a break…

Well, it’s my birthday today (22! Whoop!). And, I really wanted to post something before today, but I just haven’t found the time or inspiration. I don’t have a valid excuse for not posting, except for lack of inspiration. This is the reason why I’m going to be taking a break from posting for a…

Re-Entry…

Finally landed home after 4 months!It’s been a crazy adventure!The past 4 months have been so crazy, and I learned so much!Now, it’s time to re-enter at home, and use all those lessons from abroad! I have a lot of future post ideas, but I’m still processing the past 4 months, so, if you want…

The Real Neat Blog Award!

I love the wordpress blogging community! When I started this blog, I wasn’t sure what I was getting into. But now, I love writing, and I love the community that comes with it. I also didn’t realize people would actually read my blog, let alone like it enough to nominate me for awards (I know…

Foreign Language Classes Abroad!

So, I realize I said that posting more on my blog was one of my new years resolutions (and this is only my second post), but I promise I have a lot of posts coming (they’re all written down, just not posted yet…). Just know that I haven’t given up on my resolutions, I’m actually…

A new chapter!

Update on this blog, and my life:A new chapter is starting very soon (Dec. 5)! . . .  I am “moving” to Argentina! I say: “moving” because I will be living there for a minimum of 3 months (possibly, longer).And, although I’m nervous and a little sad (as this will be my first Christmas away from home); I’m also…

Weekend coffee share…

So, first of all, if we were having coffee right now, it would be 6 am because that’s the only time we could meet, as I work all weekend until the end of the day. . . . So, it’s 6 am. It’s so early that the sun has barely risen. But, at least it…

Home after living abroad!?

Coming back home after living abroad for a time is not easy! . . . Yup, Reverse Culture Shock! It’s a real thing! . . . So, I’ve only been back from Chile for about a week now and the only way I can describe coming home after living abroad for a time is: “weird”…

My Favorite Type of Tree!

. . . Behind the scene of that picture: So, yesterday I went out for a walk around the town I live (Quillota) here in Chile. And, while walking, I started taking pictures of random things around town that might inspire a post or that I might want to post on Instagram. And, the picture…

Perspective… / A Day in Valparaiso, Chile!

“Perspective changes everything!” . . . So, recently I took a trip to Valparaiso, Chile & I had the best day there, just wandering the city! Here’s an “itinerary” of that trip: 1- I took the bus (1 hour) to Valparaiso alone, and didn’t get lost once! 2- I explored and wandered the beautiful city…

One day – OR – Day one

You decide… . . . Are you gonna keep saying: “one day I’ll accomplish that thing I’ve always wanted“? – OR – Are you going to: “start today and make today, day one of accomplishing your dreams and goals”? . . . That’s all for this post. I just wanted to give you some quick…

Hope For Your Future…

Let your hopes, not your hurts, shape your future. -Robert H. Schuller . . . So, before I begin, I should start by saying that I don’t know the person who said that quote, but, when I read it, I immediately remembered one of the main reasons why I made the decision to live here,…

Shout-out!

Today, I feel like giving some shout-outs to some blog posts that I’ve liked this past month and bloggers that have continued to support me since I started blogging. . . . Today, I read the two following posts and thought they were interesting, so I figured I’d share them (I don’t know the bloggers,…

Fire!

Have you ever wanted to see a community work together within seconds? . . . Just come to chile (more specifically, Quillota). Seriously, I’ve lived here for 1 months now and I’ve already seen 3 fires. And, although fires are usually scary and unpredictable, being here and experiencing them in another country has added an…

Where in the world?

So, I’ve recently realized that I’ve written a few update posts about my life here in Chile, but I never really shared where exactly I am living in Chile. And, so I figured I would share my location, just for those of you that are curious, and might want to visit Chile one day. ….

My Own Material

For today’s post, I was challenged to look through my old Facebook, Instagram or Twitter posts and pick something that stood out to me and write what I think about it now. . . . So, I chose to look through my Instagram feed and, while scrolling through, my very first Instagram post stood out…
