How can you afford to travel to Europe for three months? I’m hashtag blessed. For real, traveling to exotic places you see on Instagram isn’t cheap when you account for air and ground travel, accommodations, food and alcohol, and fun excursions. With places like Iceland and Paris being pretty expensive places while Ireland’s Airbnbs seem […]

What to Know About Traveling Alone I made it my mission to travel abroad solo before I turned 30 years old. England was an easy choice based on the language alone, although plenty of other countries speak enough English for an American tourist to function. I also had a friend living an hour or so […]

Search engine optimization (SEO) has changed how content is selected for viewers. If you are reading this, then you already know how valuable it is to implement these SEO keyword phrases into website content in order for internet users to find your website and products or services. Although keywords are crucial, the top performers are […]

“What do I need to be a travel writer?” is a question I’ve been asking myself more pointedly in the last few months. With an overwhelming number of travel blogs and travelgrams, seemingly with thousands of wanderlusts making money visiting the world, I wanted to know how it’s done. How do people make money from […]

This week I took the plunge and purchased the first leg of my autumn excursion. Planning a trip is like putting a puzzle together. There are a million little pieces that work together, which may leave gaps in your bigger picture if left to the wayside. Luckily, there are countless resources to help travelers plan […]

Travel requires energy, resources, and focus, each of which depends on where and how far you journey. At a bare minimum, you need a destination, a way to get there, and a method to maintain your existence there. Where should I go in Europe? Choosing a destination requires researching how you are allowed in and […]

Feminism, like most extreme movements, is in the midst of a backlash, in this writer’s not so humble opinion. When did women equate “How are you?” as harassment? Recently I watched the Street HarassmentVideo “10 Hours of Walking in NYC as a Woman” where a woman is filmed strolling down the sidewalks of New York […]

Spring-cleaning doesn’t stop at the dustpan and mop. The New Year’s feeling of resolution and starting over with a clean slate is enhanced with sunshine and chirping birds. This mentality seems to run through to all aspects of our lives including relationships, leaving some to only feel the seasonal rain and stinging bees when the […]

Lately, dating has seemed like a chore. The excitement one gets prior to a date, the butterflies, the giddiness, has long been gone from my repertoire of emotions I get from the idea of a date.

My blog posts I Don’t Want to Be Your Friend and I Don’t Want to Be Your Friend Either are my two most highly view posts. If you haven’t read them they are each about a girl who didn’t want to be my friend anymore. The first one tapered the relationship off slowly, and the second ended […]

Another one bites the dust. You might remember my post I Don’t Want to Be Your Friend — which was about how my closet girlfriend didn’t want to be my friend anymore. Well, history has repeated itself. Since the lost of TC I have found myself part of a cluster of girls that hangout every weekend. I once […]
