You (Really) Can’t Go Home Again

I cried for an hour straight last night. I haven’t done that since my father died. You’re probably wondering what the girl who just traveled the world for an entire year has to cry about. Don’t worry, I get annoyed with myself sometimes too. But Thomas Wolfe was right, you can’t go home again. And […]

I’ve been dreading thirty-two for so long that I’m embarrassed to admit it was because of a Before Sunset quote I heard my sophomore year of college. “I was having this awful nightmare that I was thirty-two. And then I woke up and I was twenty-three. So […]

Bucket List: Blessed By A Buddhist Monk (Angkor Wat in Siem Reap, Cambodia)

Thank goodness I got the playful monk. Throwing water on me while giggling and smiling was obviously adorable, but an unexpected bonus because it was 100 degrees outside…and the only sweater I had to cover my shoulders with was black and heavy (Iwasthisclosetopassingout). Angkor Wat is obviously the must-do when you go to Cambodia…and if you go […]
