Invest Where You Are

Hi. It been a long time. I’ve come to this blank page multiple times, always planning to write a new post, but words have failed me. It’s been almost four months since I’ve left Taiwan, but it feels like years. I miss Taiwan. I miss what was “normal.” I miss my friends. I miss myContinue reading “Invest Where You Are”

I’m a Sinner Too

these past few months have passed by so quickly. my time in taiwan is almost at an end. isn’t that crazy? i’ve been here for almost a year. in one way, it does feel like a year and even longer than that. in another way, it feels like i just got here. if i’ve everContinue reading “I’m a Sinner Too”

So This is the New Normal

time just flies by and now it is april. time is like sand. i try to hold on it, but it keeps slipping between my fingers. things have changed a lot in the last few months. i know. it’s on everyone’s minds lately. the virus. the coronavirus. or COVID-19. whatever name you put to it,Continue reading “So This is the New Normal”

Word of the Year: Invest

we are already almost in the third month of the year. i barely feel like this year has started and we are almost a quarter of the way through it. i say all of this as i see some kind of spider or bug crawl across my screen. ugh. apparently it is not cold enoughContinue reading “Word of the Year: Invest”

It’s Been Awhile

i didn’t mean for three months to go by without a single post, but look where we are. we’re nearing the end of february and i haven’t posted since the beginning of november. november and december were two hard months for me, if i’m being honest. i was working on a eight week college course.Continue reading “It’s Been Awhile”

People are Still People

if you know anything about me, anything at all, you know that i love to travel. sure. traveling can be stressful. there’s booking all those flights. finding the balance between price and location for places to stay. figuring out how to get from one place to another (and hoping that it doesn’t cost a smallContinue reading “People are Still People”

So Let’s Love

recently, i read a chapter from the Bible with a friend of mine. we discussed some of our thoughts afterwards. i hope that i can make this kind of thing more of a habit in the future. anyways, 1 corinthians 1 brought some very similar thoughts to our minds and i think they are worthContinue reading “So Let’s Love”

You Have Meaning; You Have a Purpose

the rain continues to pour outside as i start to write this post. it has been cloudy outside ever since i woke up this morning. apparently the weather is like this because of a typhoon. don’t worry about it much. typhoons are kind of a common thing here. it’s just another day of life inContinue reading “You Have Meaning; You Have a Purpose”

Relationship Struggles in a Foreign Country

lately, i’ve talked a lot about all these different uplifting things. how love crosses language barriers. how love makes all the differences. but, as they say, life is not all sunflowers and roses. life is not always fun or full of happiness. last week was not a great week for me. at least, that isContinue reading “Relationship Struggles in a Foreign Country”
