I’d Rather Go

Many people my age are starting to settle down. Getting real adult jobs, getting married, and having children. And if I'm being honest, the thought of that is terrifying. But that is the norm, or to me it seems like it is. When I was in Nepal I was often asked if I was married,... Continue Reading →

24

This week, I will turn 24. It's not a big year for most people. But... for me, 24 is a big one. Because there were many, many days this past year when I didn't think that I was going to make it to my 24th birthday. 23 was full of extreme highs and extreme lows,... Continue Reading →

Lessons from 2018

Thank you for being here

Tihar

Currently in Nepal, those who are Hindu, are celebrating the festival of Tihar (similar to Diwalli in India). This was written last year, when I was in Nepal, after my first visit to a village, which just happened to occur during this festival. I had been invited to the office on the first day of...

Travel Therapy

In the last few months, it's become habit for me to check out cheap flights around the world. And, when I have a little time off from school, I start getting an itch to travel. So in early September, I came across a seat sale and booked a flight to Chicago. It was my first time... Continue Reading →
