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…

An hour into my day!

The following post is just one hour into my day (through 15 minute intervals), today-January 28, 2018. . . . I’m going to start with the hour during & after lunch. 15:30 – Lunch time (by the way, I’m currently living in Chile & that is a normal lunch time). Today for lunch, I ate:…

Word Count…

Today’s post is supposed to be about word count. (either less than 300 words or more than 1500 words) . . . So, I decided to write an “essay” about Word Count. I was going to write another update post, but I figured I’ve done enough of those this week, so, I should try something…
