An Expat’s Experience: Returning Home During the Covid-19 Pandemic

On March 19th, 2020 I received a text from my sister. She informed me that the U.S. government issued a statement asking all U.S. citizens living abroad to return home to the states immediately, or to anticipate remaining abroad indefinitely.

Looking Past the Mundane Filter

It’s a shame how often the “mundane” is so disregarded from how extraordinary it really is.

How I Spent 48 Hours in Paris!

It was a scorched Thursday evening when I arrived late in Paris. Thankfully, I managed to make quick work of finding shelter within my hotel living quarters, a makeshift room converted from what was once probably an old broom closet. As I awoke that next morning, already clad in a sodium infused sweat, I plopped […]

How did I Know it was Time?

About a year and a half ago, my sister and I were sitting down together over a few pints of our favorite beers.
