Odd Thoughts: March 8th on Don’t Waste Your Time

Obviously, since I’m posting this late at night, it appears I’m in my feels (and fair, this is true). But I’d like to stress that what I’m going to say is driven by exhaustion and frustration over a long period of time (you’re probably thinking, let’s get to the point already, dish the drama). Don’t…

A Letter to My Best Friend: Holly, I Miss You

Yes. I am supposed to be a food blogger, but I have rarely been talking about food lately. Yes. I am writing this instead of doing my homework. And yes. We haven’t talked in a long time Holly. I’ve been really busy, and I bet you have been as well. I hope your grandma is…

Oddly Dating: Tianxin and La Pupuseria

First of all, I just want to say I think it’s a beautiful thing that a Norwegian/Irish white girl and a Chinese girl can walk into a Salvadoran restaurant to get food without even the thought of how none of this would be possible without globalization and how we are all beautifully connected, especially by…

Odd Thoughts: September 17th on Openness

Ok, first off, what the hell does openness mean?

Oddly Dating: A New Series

If you don’t know me personally, this title probably seems like I’m going to start sharing WAY too much information with the world. I guess even if you do know me, it still seems that way. I’m already a freak, so how is oddly dating different for me than regular dating? Hear me out I’m…

The Bad Days: Stories You Didn’t Hear from Spain

Wow what a depressing title. Am I going through a goth phase? Stay tuned to find out…… Of course not, my sister did enough for the two of us (love you Sara). No, I wanted to share some things with you. Life is hard, and strange, and also magnificent. I’m a story teller here, sharing…

Odd Thoughts: August 25th on Settling

You can totally disagree me with me, but why would you? What I’m about to say makes complete sense, at least to me…. Oh no, I guess there’s the possibility then that you’ll think I’m totally crazy, coocoo for cocoa puffs even. Don’t settle. You deserve the very damn best and if that’s not what you’re…

Granada : Alhambra, Tapas, and the World Being Smaller than it Seems

I’m broke. Really, I don’t have money to be traveling around Europe, or even Spain for that matter but guess who has her middle finger up to reason? (It’s me guys. I think that’s an obvious rhetorical question). As you know, I’m studying abroad in Spain for the summer, spending most of my days in…
