Next month my life could go in one of four very different directions. Two would be incredible, one is what I came for, and one would be easy. Whichever path I go down will be new. Will I be accepted as travel presenter and travel the country helping make videos? Will I accept the role … Continue reading Making Decisions.
Now that my kidney stone and broken bone fiascos are complete, I feel so refreshed and grateful. You don't realize how amazing it feels to not feel any pain or nausea until you've been plagued by it constantly. Last night I went out for a little bit just to test my limits. Today I went … Continue reading Re-Entering the World.
I had never used Tinder prior to this experiment. Not a fan of hook-up-culture, but I've read funny chats previously and thought to see what I get while here. I put it for male and female since I indicated friendship only, but sadly I didn't see any females come up. There's my profile, pretty straight … Continue reading Indian Tinder – Kerala Edition.

After the fun ordeal of finding out that my hand was broken, life was getting back to normal. I had been wrapping it daily for five days when I realized that the pain in my hand was improving, but the pain in my wrist was getting worse. I called my driver friend, Aneesh, and went back … Continue reading My Broken Wrist and a Sneak Peek of My $4 House.
As this blog also doubles as my personal diary, it won't always be adventures and mishaps that I discuss. No funny stories or beautiful photos today. I am an American. A proud American. Born in a small midwestern town just a few hours south of Chicago, I have lived a fairly easy life. Straight ✔ … Continue reading I’m More Afraid of Trump than Terrorists.
Just when I thought this was my worst trip to India because of the terrible flight experience, multiple volunteer projects cancelling on me and subsequently leading to me waste a quarter of my entire budget within a week... it got worse. In India, most bathrooms are classified as 'wet bathrooms'. This essentially means that there is no partition … Continue reading Breaking My Hand and Finding a Cheaper Apartment.
