New Year, New Country - Back to SouthEast Asia

New Year, New Country - Back to SouthEast Asia

With only 3 weeks to go before I move to the other side of the world again, I can barely do anything to calm my excitement.

At the end of the month, I’ll be off to follow my dream again of experiencing the world through full cultural immersion. I got an opportunity to move to the capital of Malaysia!

I can’t even lie -- I’m really freaking anxious. For the past few weeks, it’s all I’ve been able to think about. I’m not *that* nervous -- but at the same time I am.

8 Months in Thailand Roundup Pt. II - Brain Dump & What's Next

8 Months in Thailand Roundup Pt. II - Brain Dump & What's Next

I did what felt good to my soul.

Once I dreamt up the idea to move to Thailand, I was so set on moving assoonaspossible that I didn’t allow myself any time to second guess it. I didn’t even wait until my LA apartment lease was up -- I found someone to replace me, bought my ticket without waiting for permission, and set the plan in motion to get up and go.

I’ve bounced around from here to there, hopping around from one city to the next, attempting to get my life along the way (resulting in the birth of new goal after new goal), often times moving too fast to even keep up with myself. Hence, why my beloved blog became increasingly vacant of new updates as the year shot by like a speeding bullet.

“I’m all over the place, I can’t sit in one place, I’m not ashamed at all.” 

No More Beaches!? - It's All Happening

No More Beaches!? - It's All Happening

Moving to Los Angeles was a big deal for me.

It’s the reason I launched the travel blog I always wanted to create, it forced me to become a true go-getter, and it pushed me to explore life outside my comfort zone without having anyone to hold my hand through the process. 23 years spent living in the same county just wasn’t cutting it for me nor pushing me to flourish.

Hello Twenty Fifteen -- Let's Have a New Year Chat

Well helloooooo there urbanistas! The holidays called for a mid season blog hiatus, but PBU has been ringing also, like "Girls, where you been!?" The holiday finale always creeps up a little too quickly and the excitement inevitably fades when the rush is over, so alas, let's get back to it.

I celebrated Christmas through New Year's back at home in Maryland/DC for the first time in 9 months, and
