Hostels: Top 5 Myths Debunked!

Growing up, I had never heard of a hostel. Perhaps I had seen it in writing, but I’m sure the word nerd in me figured it was just someone misspelling “hotel.”

Long Distance Love

I used to say I could never be in a long distance relationship.

What’s the point?! Sounds mi-s-er-a-bleeeeee.

While it’s certainly not all rainbows and kittens, it’s worth it when you know that person is your person. The distance doesn’t feel as hopeless when you’ve found the person who fills you with hope. But it’s fucking hard. There’s no candy coating that, my friends.

My marine will be home a month from today, for a few weeks, and I’m so so so so so excited. I haven’t seen him since the first day of the year, but we’ve found ways to combat not being physically together. We write cheesy letters to each other (YES, LETTERS. SENT IN THE MAIL!) and every time I get one from him it’s an instant day brightener.

FUN FACT: If you’re sending mail to a military base (even if it’s alllll the way in Japan), all you need is one US stamp! Yay USPS helping out the military folk.

We message each other every day, no matter the time difference, and make time to video chat when we can. It’s not always convenient, but it’s always worth it.

If you’re in a LDR, I applaud you and wish you nothing but the best.

5 Places I Want To Visit This Year

Happy Hump Day, y’all! I’m filled with a sense of wanderlust today (lolz when am I not?) and wanted to curate a little list of places I’d like to visit this year (but I really mean within the next year…so by this time next year). A lot of people make lists like this at the start of a New Year, but I like to do it randomly throughout the year to keep things exciting! I’d love to look back at this list and have visited all five and then some!
