Being a loner was the best decision I made in 2016.

I’ve always been social, super social. As a Kid I hardly ever skipped school, I loved going and hanging out with classmates. Weekends were spent at sleepovers, going to the mall. If I was ever at home I’d be on msn. In university, weekends were spent at house parties and clubs. I would wake up…

Oh the locations I’ve cried in.

At least once a month I cry. I always feel better after. It’s hard being happy all the time and it’s not a realistic expectation to never feel negative emotions. When your down, sometimes it’s okay to tell yourself you know what, I’m gonna just feel down, I’m going feel this out, I’m going to…

Overcoming insecurities

I remember walking up one day and saying I can’t do this anymore. I can’t hate myself like this anymore. I just can’t. What happens when I’m 50 and get wrinkles, what happens when I’m pregnant and have stretch marks all over? What happens if I get sick and bed ridden for 6 months and…

Should I have a blog?

Do people care what I write about? Do people care how I think? Do I sound dumb? Am I relatable? Am I the only one who thinks and feels these things? Should I just keep a diary? Do I sound like a 14 year old girl? Who knows…here we go anyway

Kenya believe I went to Kenya!

BEFORE KENYA So my mom went to Kenya a few years ago, and I remember her bringing back these Scottish patterned blankets, and I was like, what. Kenya’s one of those countries that everyone visits so I was like Do I go or do I not go? It’s like an obvious bucket list item. I…

Insane Istanbul adventures

WHY I WANTED TO GO TO TURKEY My previous job would fly me to Austria once a year. One of the stopovers from Dubai was Turkey and the other was Germany. So I’m like cool, I’ll take a few days off when I come back and stop in Turkey. The first year it didn’t happen….

Forgotten Pyramids of Meroe Sudan.

BEFORE SUDAN I wanted to go to Sudan because I saw a photo of the Forgotten Pyramids – and honestly – that was enough. I wanted to explore more of Africa, so this was really a Buy One, Get One Free bucket list kind of deal. I love that feeling of seeing something on the…

Climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro

BEFORE MT. KILIMANJARO Three main factors drove me to climb Mt. Kili: I wanted to challenge myself, go to the African continent, and try something new that pushed me outside of my comfort zone. So I was at a friend’s birthday party on his yacht (lol Dubai high life), and he mentioned that he was…

How it all started

It all started with a confession. I wasn’t happy. But I wanted to be. I was in the process of figuring myself out and at the same time I was trying to figure life out. I started doing everything in my power to make myself happy. Started trying new things, going to new places, meeting new…
