“Peoplesick”

So, a few days ago, I had this revelation about home. I was feeling sad, and I couldn’t figure out why because I didn’t really feel homesick, but I couldn’t put it into words. Until I came up with the word “peoplesick”. You see, I’ve been living in a dorm with 11 other girls for…

What do you want to do when you grow up? Where do you see yourself in 5/10 years? What do you want to eat for supper? WHAT DO YOU WANT TO DO WITH YOUR LIFE? . . . They just never stop! They never leave you alone! They are ALWAYS there! One after the other….

The good ol’ days!

I miss the days when I used to play outside everyday after school. I miss the days when I would run around my block with friends and neighbours doing crazy and stupid things. I miss the days when we’d laugh all evening until the sun set. I miss those days because I always thought we’d…

Coco!

So, I just had a “weird” experience. . . . I just went to the movie theatre here in Chile and watched a Spanish movie (w/o subtitles). . . . It might not seem like such a weird thing, but that’s the best word I could think of to describe it. It made me feel…

A rollercoaster year!

Hold up! Wait! Before I even start to talk about this past year, I just have to say that in the beginning of this year I would have never imagined being here in Chile for New Year’s. That’s just crazy! . . . I’ll admit, this year has had it’s down/low moments, but in general,…

The Unknown… 

I’m tired of feeling stuck! I want to travel & experience new & different things! . . . I’m tired of living in this bubble of what I know about the world. I am starting to get tired of my comfort zone (I think this is a sign that I need to change something). I…

A poem/letter…

My first blog post poem!  Now, I guess I should disclaim that I didn’t technically come up with this poem on my own. I came across a post this past week where someone was sharing their feelings, and while reading it, I decided to put together some of the words to form an encouraging letter/poem….
