This is how I fight my battles…

So, I’ve recently gone through a pretty testing season of life. And, I’ve learned that the only way to win battles is to fight them the right way. But, before I go into the details, here’s a poem I wrote during this past season: Dear God,I’m doneI’m giving upI can’t carry this anymoreI have nothing…

So, it’s my birthday today (23! Woohoo!), and I’m currently in New South Wales, Australia! The past 6 months have been pretty crazy, and instead of repeating it all here, here’s a link to a page where you can read all my past posts from my experiences here in Australia from the past 6 months…

Weekend coffee share…

So, it’s been a week since I’ve posted anything. And, I know 1 week isn’t very long, but to me it feels like it’s been long enough. (I’ve been trying to post twice a week, but clearly that didn’t happen!) And, I guess I’m mostly just disapointed in myself because I really don’t have a…

Apologies & Promises (A Letter)

*I’m writing this for Mother’s Day, but it can also work for Father’s Day.* It can pretty much work for any day (i just recently got inspired). Dear mom / dad (or anyone else),    I just want to apologize for some things: I’m sorry for ever letting you down. I’m sorry for ever doubting…

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…

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,…

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:…

Seeing…

Seeing something with your own eyes is always better! . . . I came across this image earlier today, and I just had to share it because it’s so great. If you’re even remotely considering traveling abroad, just go. Don’t ask people for their opinion, unless they’ve been to that country and they love traveling,…

A different type of post that I haven’t done yet on this blog, but I wanted to try it out. Let me know what you think in the comments (when you finish reading). . . . I’m just going to write what-ever and how-ever I would, as if we are best friends just casually meeting…

The world around me…

So, for today’s post, I decided to observe the most popular place of the town where I’m currently living. . . . So, I’m just sitting here in the middle of “La Plaza de Armas” in Quillota, Chile, eating manjar ice cream in 30 degree Celsius weather, in the middle of January. . . ….

Learning…

For the record: I don’t know the person that posted the previous tweet, but I very much agree with it. Here’s why: . . . As a high school and college graduate, I do think education is important to start your life by learning the basics. But, as a traveler, I know that I still…

The Train Station

For today’s post, I was given an image to form a thought about, and write whatever came to mind. So, my thought when seeing the picture above was: “Life is like a train station!”. . . . A train station: A place where people just get off one train to get on another train to…

Dear millennials,

I wrote a post earlier (last month) about Grocery Stores and how much you can learn about a culture by visiting a grocery store. So, I recommend that before you read any further, you should go read that post. Here’s the link: The Grocery Store … So, I’m sitting here, in this very diverse coffee…

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…
