On Finally Being “Healthy”

This post is brought to you by: my scale – changing the way I view myself every day. Yesterday I stood on my scale to find that for the first time in more than almost five years I am a “healthy” weight. If that wasn’t strange enough, it’s also the first time I can think … Continue reading On Finally Being “Healthy”

The One Where I’m Swimming

Today started as "fuck, it's Monday" and is coming to a lovely end as "I'm ready for Tuesday." I've struggled with sleeping since coming to Korea - I'm not sure if it's that my bed is a lot less comfortable (which it is), or that I'm stressed, or now if I'm coming up with some … Continue reading The One Where I’m Swimming

The One Where I’ve Been Here for Two Months

Two months. It's been almost exactly two months since I moved to Korea. I still feel like a mess, I still don't know what to do with myself half of the time, but, somehow, I think I'm getting my footing.

Treat Your(new)self

At times like these I indulge in the material things; in the last few days I've gotten a new phone, dyed my hair, and splurged on some high-end makeup. I hate a lot of things about consumerism, but I sure am participating in it lately. That's because people change, I changed, and it's important to me … Continue reading Treat Your(new)self

But time doesn't stop, and neither should your (or my) life. So what are your goals for this summer? Have you … Continue reading Summertime Schedules

Letters From Exchange: Thoughts on the Flight Home

Man, do I have to pee.  That's it, that's the end of my year (10 months, whatever) of exchange, of adventure. I flew to Oslo 10 months ago and had one of the toughest days of my life, sleep-deprived and hungry, pushing my body weight in luggage around a foreign country on one of the … Continue reading Letters From Exchange: Thoughts on the Flight Home

Letters From Exchange: The One Where I’m Traveling A LOT

I meant to blog more while traveling all month, so let me just apologize for that. I always think it'll be easy to keep up with things, but then I actually go and travel and even if I have consistent wifi, I just get so tired that it's hard to focus. I'm struggling just with … Continue reading Letters From Exchange: The One Where I’m Traveling A LOT
