I had my first ultimate frisbee practice with my work team last night. Ultimate is something I've always wanted to play, but either never got the chance, never had the money, or never wanted to embarrass myself in front of strangers. My workplace is pretty cool, though, and I figured they probably wouldn't fire me … Continue reading I think it’s time to stop calling myself fat.
I've always been someone who wakes up early. When I was a kid, I would have to bring a book and a snack to sleepovers because I would always be the first person to wake. I'd sit there reading my book and munching my snack for an hour or two waiting while my friends dozed … Continue reading Saturday morning. 6:15am.

When I first decided to run away for a year, I was adamant that traveling in your late 20s was heaps better than traveling in your early 20s; you get more out of things, you know yourself better, you remember simple moments, and you won’t let yourself have drunk sex with an Irish guy in … Continue reading Long-Term Travel in Your Late 20s is Super Stupid
Conga Lines are fucking ridiculous. They're the stupidest things to happen to awesome parties. I've been thinking a lot about weddings lately (don't ask) and about wedding receptions. Look, I love weddings. I cry, I laugh, I love the energy and the love and the shitty food and the fact that everyone dances and you … Continue reading Conga Lines
I think everyone who has lived in a hostel for more than a couple days has a “Hostel Etiquette” list. Here, in no particular order, is mine! If you wear cologne or perfume, don’t spray it in your hostel room. Seriously. The room is, what, 10x10 and there are six people in there. I don’t … Continue reading Hostel Tips: wtf guys?
