What’s in My Bag? The 5th Co. Essential

What's in My Bag? The 5th Co. Essential

I have been known to be a notorious overpacker, and when it has come to my everyday bag it's been no different. My parents used to teasingly ask, "What do you have in that suitcase?" (referring to my purse/bag), and to that I would respond, "My life, duh."I like being prepared. I mean, you just never know when you might need those pair of socks in your purse to double as gloves because it's the dead of winter and you forgot your real gloves at home. You were running late, didn't have time to let...

That One Time I Thought I Was About to Die: A Mini Confession

This is a random note I came across in my phone this morning while searching for something else. Too long for a Facebook post (IMO), and not quite long enough for a featured blog post, I figured I'd make it a mini confession:Everyone bracing themselves, drinks sloshing, cutlery and other tray items flying, unanimous "Ohhh's" and "Whoa's" with every violent bump, and a whole lot of prayers, on my part. I just knew the face masks would drop at any minute and today would be the day that I met my Maker. I've never experienced...

Living in the rice paddies of rural South Korea, where my only distractions are social media and Marvel movie marathons (on the weekends), I’ve had a lot of time for self-reflection and introspection, to say the least. Pondering the last decade, or so, of my life has been prevalent more than ever lately. Undoubtedly, because I am on the precipice of turning another year older in just a couple of days. Another year older, another year wiser, right? So, what advice would my wiser, more mature self, give to my younger, inept self? Here goes… Carpe the...

That One Time I Went Scuba Diving…

I’m not the type that typically freaks out. Well…except maybe when it comes to bugs…and furry and/or non furry four-legged animals that can scratch, bite, or claw my eyes out…and always every now and then the dark…and needles.Ok, so maybe I am the type. But, whatever, that’s not the point. The point is, when it comes to things like jumping out of planes, or zipping through the jungle strapped to a harness on a line, and swimming with nurse sharks, I’m all good. No worries. No fears. So, when scuba diving in Boracay left me...
