Day 288

I attended, and forgot my phone at (hence the photo), a workspace Town Hall meeting/presentation, and after the meeting I voluntarily + calmly ate a slice of four-chili pizza that brought grown men to tears, after which I was told I “took it to a whole new level for a white girl.” p.s. happy birthday chris!

Day 287

I remember reading Anna Kendrick’s book and wanting to reach out to her to thank her for making me feel less like a weirdo (I didn’t), and after my rambling post exposing the anxious mind of a Remote Year #jetsetter #tothelifestyle #neverpeak a few people reached out to ME said that I made THEM feel…

Day 286

Today is World Mental Health Day (at the time I’m writing this, it’s technically yesterday). For better or worse, a humongous theme of Remote Year for me has been mental health, and the things that I deal with on a daily basis, and one of the biggest things I’ve seen about Mental Health Month/Week/Day is…

Day 285

I feel like a normal + happy person, working out in the morning (and doing sunset yoga at my workspace which is a literal heaven on earth), eating normal meals (that’s a lie, I had a granola bar + peanut butter cookies for “dinner”), working weird hours but still working, snoozing for 8 hours, not…

Day 284

Don’t worry today was actually productive – I went on a hike through a legitimate jungle, forded six rivers/moving bodies of water of various sizes and intensities (big ups to the generic Tevas a bought yesterday, the real MVP of my day), ended up at a waterfall where I ate almost an entire bag of…

Day 283

The plan was to go to a yoga class at 9am but instead I slept until 10:30 – sue me, go ahead – before going into KLCC where the plan was to sightsee with Amy and Kelly but instead we ate brunch and went shopping – sue us, go ahead – and then I went…

Day 282

My intention was to go to a cool sunset-drinks-on-a-helipad thing, but instead I ubered into KL City Center (KLCC), chatted with Steph for awhile, ate a heaping plate of Thai noodles, went to the workspace to charge my phone, ubered home, and watched Netflix for some time because it’s month 10 and the jig is…

Day 281

“I’ve been getting tons of questions about what my work life is like in Asia…” – the way social media influencers frame any topic they kind of want to talk about. “I think my mom recently asked me what my work life is like in Asia…” – the truth. I wake up at about 9,…

Day 264-280

Annndd clocking in at 16 days of missed posts, I am officially past the point of day-by-day updates. What happened? Four cities and a flight halfway around the world happened. Jet lag happened. Stuffing my face with croissants, the final tastes of Spain (that’s a lie, I had to finish all my groceries so I…
