Other people shouldn’t have a problem with you saying no to a drink. Unfortunately, as with many scenarios, “no” is not always accepted as a final answer. There may be people who, for reasons of their own, will pressure you to take that first drink. Not everyone wants to disclose alcoholism, so what can you say to make people leave you alone?

Where have I been since 2015?  I’ll update you all soon, but this video will give you a hint as to why I’ve been more or less MIA on the interwebs. We adopted a PUPPY! I’ll post a separate article just about puppy adoption in Buenos Aires and what the process was like for us.…

Anti-Jolly Christmas Creatures

Christmas is coming and this year I’m not into it. Something you should know about me is that I have always been the spirit of Christmas. As soon as Thanksgiving is over, I would crank up the holiday tunes and watch every Christmas movie I could get my hands on. I cut out snowflakes and…

I Was Invisible Until Batman Kicked my Ass

Imagine my surprise when I looked in the mirror and I wasn’t there. I couldn’t see myself, at all. I also couldn’t remember what I looked like. Have you ever had to search for something when you had no idea what that thing looked like? It’s not very easy. I have a vivid imagination and fancy…

Alas, after months of saying this blog was being redesigned and promising myself during late nights of self-loathing that I’d actually get it done…it is finished! I can’t tell you how many days I spent awkwardly curled up on the couch with my laptop half on my lap, half on the couch cushion, pouring over…

Apologies for the lack of blog posts, this blog isn’t where I earn my keep, but it is where I love to share my stories and thoughts with all my readers. Lately I’ve been busier than ever writing for other websites, working on videos, and cultivating the travel section for a soon to be launched…

My Argentine Emergency Room Visit

Posted in , , ,

I’ve been here for barely a month and already I’ve had to take a trip to the emergency room. I live life in a very yes or don’t-know fashion, once I make a decision I stick to it but I am the most annoying person when trying to decide between two options. It drives my…

No, this isn’t some city girl complaining about a small town. Easiest way to express how much you don’t want to move? Call everything crappy.

Sometimes, when you travel or live abroad you aren’t really sure what’s going on. As I’ve recently admitted, my signature pose says, “I have no idea what’s going on but I’m excited.” You might kind of get it, but mainly you just go with it.
