Adulting / Living Abroad

There’s a lot to learn how to do all over again. . . . It doesn’t matter if you were a pro at all those things in your home country because everything will be different in a foreign country. Yes, there will be similarities, and you will learn the differences quickly. But, you will still…

A little goes a long way!

$1 CDN = $500 CLP . . . So, 2 months ago I was living in Chile and the last time I went to the bank to get money for some souvenirs, I thought about how much money/souvenirs I wanted. And, since the bank machines were in Chilean pesos I had to do the math,…

Learning how to chill…

So, stress is not fun at all. And, learning that the hard way makes it even more stressful. . . . While I was living in Chile, I learned that stressing about things is never a good response. I learned to just go with the flow; to not always stress when things don’t happen on…

Stranger danger!

So, “stranger danger” can’t really be in my vocabulary anymore. . . . Remember when you were young, and your parents told you not to talk to strangers? Well, that comes with a lot of terms and conditions, the biggest one being: Traveling. P.S. I’m not talking about those creepy strangers in white vans (you…

Put in the work!

You can’t just put in work when you feel like it. Success won’t come overnight. Your dreams won’t accomplish themselves. Whatever it is that you want to accomplish; YOU have to put in the work EVERYDAY! Results come with consistency and patience! . . . I’ve been living in Chile for 2 months and I…
