Life in Uganda: Months 3 & 4

Life in Uganda: Months 3 & 4

Hey guys! So I've decided to resume my monthly recaps! My recaps will cover the highs and lows of living in Uganda, as well as recap where I'm traveling and what I'm reading. I've also decided to change the title of this series as it's looking like I won't be moving...
My First Impressions of Uganda

My First Impressions of Uganda

I've only been in Kampala, Uganda, for a week and I'm already head over heels. I like it so much that when people ask me, “How are you liking Kampala so far?” I have to hold back from gushing about all the reasons I'm so enamored. For those who don't know,...
On Leaving Behind a Life You Love

On Leaving Behind a Life You Love

A few months back, I was feeling unsure about my direction. So I read my tarot cards. The first card I pulled was a hierophant. It read, “You may be struggling with an issue and are unsure about what is “right” for you to do. Know that the answers...
My Travel Plans for 2017

My Travel Plans for 2017

Hey guys! So as you may have read, I'm moving to Africa! (I still can't write that without exclamation points, by the way.) In 2017 I'm going to travel much more than I have in the past few years. And I couldn't be more excited. Naturally, I am dying to explore...
My Number One Resolution for 2017

My Number One Resolution for 2017

Hey guys, I hope you're enjoying 2017 so far! Is it just me, or is it weirdly fun reading other people's resolutions? Maybe I'm nosy, but I find it super interesting. So I figured I'd share mine for the year. Stop wasting time. In 2017, I've resolved to stop wasting...

I’m Moving to AFRICA!!!

I'm kicking off 2017 with some big news – yesterday I quit my job and next month I'm moving to Africa! Uganda, specifically. Words can't express how excited I am to live abroad again. Some of my friends think I'm insane – I'm quitting a great job to move...
Turning 26 and a Brief Blogging Break

Turning 26 and a Brief Blogging Break

Hey guys! So I just turned 26 this past weekend. To celebrate, I spent five days with family and friends at my cottage in Michigan and it was glorious (aside from political drama – I can't wait for this election to be over). I have so much I want to share with...
On Living and Traveling with Anxiety

On Living and Traveling with Anxiety

Confession – I can’t remember a time when I lived without anxiety. It’s my constant companion, my heaviest cross to bear. Anxiety is a nightmare because you can’t escape it; it’s a problem that exists within your own mind. No matter how far you go, it’s always with...
25 Things It Took Me 25 Years to Learn

25 Things It Took Me 25 Years to Learn

25 has been a pivotal year for me – this stage of my life feels very adult in a way that my early twenties didn't. As Adele so wisely wrote, the future didn't matter then like it does now. Like most of us, I've become more confident and secure with age. I'm...
