The Teacher Chronicles

I will be totally honest. When I made the decision to teach English abroad the thought of 'teaching' never crossed my mind. It sounds silly, but I'm being serious. I would tell my friends I would be, "Molding young minds," and give them my best Grinch face. While in Cambodia completing my TESOL training there were several … Continue reading The Teacher Chronicles

The Real MVP

BELINDA CAME TO HO CHI MINH FOR MY 23rd BIRTHDAY. It was by far one of the best birthday presents I have ever received. I was born in San Diego and grew up in Cerritos, CA. So when it was time to decide where to go for college (sophomore year  in college - I committed early) … Continue reading The Real MVP

The Instagrams That Never Made It Pt. 4

December was an absolutely insane month. We pretty much had visitors coming and going and it seemed as if I was busy every single second of every day for a month straight entertaining. I took a ton of photos but as you know I can't Instagram everything. There are rules people. Here are the unlucky ones. … Continue reading The Instagrams That Never Made It Pt. 4

Monkey Island

Let me begin by thanking Hurley for the photo and videos in this post – the photos that look professional and perfect are Hurley’s – the photos that look basic and boring are mine.  If  you are at all impressed by what you see (you will be) definitely take a moment and check out his … Continue reading Monkey Island

What I Whipped Up

Over the past couple of years I have develop a very particular and critical style of eating.  I have been Pescatarian, Vegatarian, Vegan, Gluten Free -- a lil restrictive.  I didn't look at it as a burden (still don't!).  Eating fruits, vegetables, drinking smoothies and juices makes me feel great.  My favorite part of the … Continue reading What I Whipped Up

’14 (best & worst)

This is my last post about 2014, I promise. This was supposed to go up on the 1st of January but I was actually too hungover and tired to even look at my computer screen to press 'Publish.'  Over time, I figured I might as well add all of the ugly photos of 2014 to the … Continue reading ’14 (best & worst)

’15

Humans have strong opinions on everything.  Whether if it's on the debate on Cheetos vs. Cheeto Puffs or LBGT Rights and police brutality, people have something to say.  New Year's Resolutions are not immune to this conversation.  My opinion, which you will find to be true in just about all aspects of my life is: "I dunno, … Continue reading ’15

Two Days Of Fun

Too many districts. Two Days. Plus Teaching. May the odds be ever in your favor.        The morning after I arrived in Ho Chi Minh City, I went to lunch with the other Language Corps teachers to discover that HARDWELL (I love Hardwell. We share the same birthday. And I love his hair color) had DJ'd in … Continue reading Two Days Of Fun

Supa Fresh

The lord threw me a bone by placing organic down the street.  Between a mini Vietnamese style liquor store is a beautiful, bright green grocery store called Organica. How did I discover this place? Technically, Megan did.  One of the many days we were being rained on during our 3pm walk home Megan says, "OMG … Continue reading Supa Fresh
