Bullet Note booking

Since I’ve been home I have been busy doing, honestly a lot of nothing (in my God honest opinion).  Aside from continuing to travel within the US, I have been private tutoring and struggling to finish my final year as a graduate student.  I am presently pursuing a dual Masters in Exceptional Education and Reading.  I can admit that I am struggling with my graduate studies because I'm not organized.  I struggle because I can’t juggle and am pretending to know how to with my eyes closed while balancing on a unicycle and uploading the video to my Instragram Story.  I am trying to balance

The Bpum Eats food series continued: Samsara Cafe in Antigua, Guatemala

The Bpum Eats food series continued: Samsara Cafe in Antigua, Guatemala

I’m seated at a quaint window seat in the tranquil Samsara cafe and restaurant.  Samsara is adored for their healthy vegetarian and vegan menu items and relaxing atmosphere.  Although it is located on a busy cross street with constant traffic whizzing by, the warm calming cafe is a great escape.  The restaurant is tastefully decorated.  The walls in the front room are warmed with a rich brown shade with grey undertones.  The painted walls are then accented with peaceful quotes written in Old English style. [...]

Food Series Continues: Pappy’s BBQ in Antigua, Guatemala

Food Series Continues: Pappy’s BBQ in Antigua, Guatemala

I am now in Antigua, soaking up the sun, enjoying the beautiful architecture, eating plenty of delicious food and taking it all in.  Antigua is a beautiful city.  While it is a tourist destination and many people and businesses communicate in English to cater to tourists, it’s still very charming and has a local feel (says the tourist).  The streets are all cobblestone.  Mainly one-way.  Lined with brightly-painted colonial style buildings, dark iron accents on doors and windows.  Cherry wood finishing, and workers anxious to greet you.  Antigua is a friendly place.  A welcomed change after living in Coban.  It’s also easy to navigate- I have NO SENSE OF DIRECTION!  [...]

Lost in the back of a cab in Coban

I had a great time wandering in Coban.  Every time I set out on a mission to find a specific destination I end up encountering so much more.    Turning left instead of right, I always find something of interest.    From a street festival to a new restaurant.    Even people-watching is interesting and this is how I’m able to gather how people live and the daily functions of locals. [...]

Coban Eats Series: Sedano’s Steakhouse

Coban Eats Series: Sedano’s Steakhouse

I already knew this, but I truly thought patient was an adjective I could use when people wanna play the ridiculous, “describe yourself in one word” game.   Again today, I was out for work, rushing to complete last-minute requests.  The requests weren’t daunting, but that doesn’t change how much I didn’t want to fulfill them.  The part that drove me insane, was sitting in the air-conditioned (I hate air-conditioning) McDonald’s lobby waiting over an hour to deliver a box. [...]
